Lots of Firsts

This will be a giant picture dump of a post trying to catch up since the last time I posted. I wish blogger would make posting easier instead of harder every time it updates. Anyway, today was Brinley's first day of preschool. She is attending Challenger this year. She was such a big girl about it. We took her to school and she was so excited she barely bothered to give us a hug and she ran off to play. She was so excited to tell us all about her day when she got home!

In her Uniform before school this morning!

She was so excited to go to school

She even let me put her hair in socks last night so it would be nice and curly

Before school started this weekend we took Wyatt on his first camping trip. It was Brinley's second camping trip. My children were made for camping. They both had a great time!

Daddy and Wyatt waiting for the sun to come out and warm things up.

On Wyatt's first 24th of July we took him to his first rodeo! Here are the kids all dressed up

Here are the kiddos with their 1st puppy! This is little Charley. He isn't our first dog but it is the kids' first puppy

Here is Wyatt on his first tractor. It didn't take him long to figure out how to make it go but we are still working on the steering part

This is Wyatt right after his 1st time on the water slide. He is so fearless he loves it! He and Brinley have spent hours this summer out on the waterslide.

This is Wyatt at his 1st parade on the 4th of July!

Here is Brinley cooling off at the parade

He was fascinated!

1st Easter
Brinley sure loves her baby brother. We have had an awesome summer. Wyatt is 10 months old now and growing like a weed. He is standing by himself and cruising along if he has anything to hold onto. We expect he will be walking in the next few weeks. He knows a few signs- milk, more, and all done and he says a few words- Mama, Dada, dog, all done, cheese. He is a super happy kid and keeps us smiling all the time. He loves it when I get home from work and gets super excited when I walk in the door. Brinley is 3.5 now and she is an awesome kid. She has a sweet wonderful personality and she loves everyone. She gives the best hugs. She loves to play with friends and loves her puppy. That is my giant dump for the day!

All about Brinley

I had so much fun staying home with the kids while I was on maternity leave. We went to the aquarium and hung out with friends. I also got to take Brinley to her little gym classes. One day after little gym I pulled out the camera. These pictures just show her little personality.

Brinley is such a happy fun kid. She almost always wakes up with a smile and a hug. She asks about Wyatt as soon as she wakes up.

She is funny and goofy and sweet.

Her little smile lights up a room! She loves to tease.

She is super affectionate. She is full of hugs and kisses. She gives Wyatt a hug and a kiss before each and every nap he takes and before he goes to bed at night.

She tells us how much she loves us. She will say, guess what mom or dad, when we say what? She will answer with I love you. The other night she told me "Mom, I love you a little bit. I love Daddy sooooo much!" cracked me up!

She is full of energy and wants to play play play!

She adores her little brother. She is never mean to him, rarely jealous and genuinely enjoys being around him.

She encourages him when he tries new things and entertains him in the car.

She can make him smile and laugh by just being herself.

She is little miss diva princess attitude.

This was the night before her 3rd birthday!

She was little ticked off about the streamers in front of her door until she realized they were for her birthday!

A new train set for her birthday. She was so excited.

There were also balloons! She especially loved the Zebra balloon. She called it her Stripes balloon.

Her friend Addison's birthday is just a few days after hers. She got to go to a princess party for Addison. She was very excited about the treat bag.

She couldn't wait to get her boots off and tell me all about the party!

She had to show me all her loot

Addison's mommy did an awesome job on the hair!

We had her birthday party a few weeks later. She insisted that we have party hats thanks to an episode of Word World.

This picture is out of order but I can't fix it on the iPad right now. At the end of the day though, Wyatt is her best little friend.

Cake and ice cream with friends. We love our little princess so much.

A few more things about Brinley I don't want to forget.
-she loves horses and cowgirls
-she loves to learn, she knows her ABCs and can recognize all the letters uppercase and lowercase. She can identify the number of objects in a group up to about 10 items.

She is the sweetest kid on the planet and loves everyone. I feel so lucky to be her Mom.
