Torn Household

Today was quite the day for football rivalry. Tension always rises in the house when the Vikings play the Bears....and it doesn't help that we had our friends over, the Mitchells, who are die hard Packer fans to watch the heated battle.



We enjoyed Bloody Mary's and Chili...just like it were a cool fall day back in the midwest...only to step outside to find out it was 90 plus degrees.

Amaya had fun running from Deuce and Brooklyn pretty much napped the whole time. Good thing since Mommy and Daddy were wrapped up into the game. Prior to today Amaya really enjoyed Brooklyn and their friendship...but as you can see by the next picture she's begun to question their relationship....

]
She's trying to get away from the Bears Fan....



Brooklyn thinks, that is okay More room for me!!!...she's not quite sure how she feels about the green and gold outfit anyway....


Wait til we test the waters of their friendship when the Bears play the Packers!

Anyhow, Mommy and Brooklyn enjoyed our Victory!!!!! Go bears!!!! (sorry you lost Daddy!!!)

Gametime vs. the Vikings is the ONLY time being married to Brett is hard :-)...it's tough loving him, but at the end of the day we still manage to sleep in the same bed...especially when the Bears are victorious!

Last night we started Brooklyn in her new fancy fun highchair. Since she's been sitting up well on her own I figure she'd do okay....and she loved it!!! Thank you Uncle Jamey and Auntie Rhonda!



She's also in arms length of the dog that he can eat right out of her hand...which she truly enjoyed letting him lick her fingers...he didn't make the picture but he's there....


Brooklyn has been sitting up so much better each day. I can even sit her up and move away a bit...if she does topple over it's on padded carpet and she just continues on playing like it's no big deal. She's managed to pull herself up from a reclined position and makes any time in her swing or bouncy challenging since she won't lay back in it....


She still loves watching the Little Mermaid or Baby Mozart.



I know that propping her in front of a TV isn't the most developmentally appropriate..but sometimes i just have to do it in order to grab a quick shower or even brush my teeth. I promise she's not in front of it all day long. I'm sure there are moms out there that understand my dilemma :-)


The other morning Brett woke me up to find our "Kids" cuddled up together in the middle of our bed...




Obviously Deuce wanted to be by his lil sister and Brooklyn didn't seem to mind his company...too Priceless not to get up in the middle of a deep sleep to snap some pics!

LOve the pics, especially the little packer cheerleader. Go pack Go!! Sorry....ha ha. Okay the ones with the dog, way too cute! I totally understand what you are saying about the tv time = shower time. That is sometimes the ONLY way I get to shower and sometimes not even. SOmetimes it's not until 10 at night when all the kids (including the hubby :) )are asleep. Sad but, true! I am just happy to be able to finally get in the shower ha ha. A little baby mozart will never hurt anyone!
