Fun-Day, Sunday!

Brett had an early start on the day and played a round of golf with the boys at 545 this morning. Brooklyn and I chose to sleep in til about the time he got home. After we got up we cleaned house and finally put shelves up in the empty media niche above the new credenza our parents bought us for our anniversary. Here's the completed look....


Here's Brooklyn entertaining herself while I helped Daddy with the shelves.

She can hold her head up better these days and she's still short enough (I bet this is going to be an ongoing issue with her) that when she sits in the bumbo her head gets support on the back side.

And when we aren't looking Deuce likes to sneak a kiss in...


Tonight Brett and I took the family out for a walk after it cooled down a bit. We got back home only to realize that we had locked ourselves out. Our great friends Tod and Casey came to the rescue! They have our spare key from last week when they had taken care of Deuce...thank goodness! So Tod swung by to let us in....ironically enough this happened after our other friends Cindy and Justin came by this afternoon for a visit and gave us back the other spare key we had given them a while back to check on the house while we were on vacation. Cindy and Justin have 4 handsome lil boys that Brooklyn took a liking to. Brooklyn had her first kiss from Aiden today. That will be her first and only for many years....many decades if Daddy has any say in that. I saw Daddy's teeth clinch when Aiden went in for the kiss...

Brooklyn had otherwise been doing very well. She's much more social and playful. I'm trying to get her and this household on some sort of schedule before I go back to work but it's a struggle since I'm still nursing her on demand. She does do well at night and only wakes up once thru the night to eat. Our lil sweetheart is definately a binkie type of girl. At least there is always something that will soothe and calm her. The problem she has is that she can't quite seem to keep it in her mouth the best yet so I glued her puppy friend...not Deuce... to her binkie to help her out.



Daddy has been learning how to do baths on his own. Thanks to Miss Ellie for loaning us her baby tub it's much more easier. The old tub we had sucked and it took 2 people to bathe her. One to actually do the scrub down and the other to support and hold her so she doesn't totally submerge in the water. Here's Daddy doing his first solo bath! Of course i had to snap some pics....



Brooklyn says "Job well done daddy!"


Alright, Brooklyn's needing to eat now...have a good one everyone!!!!
