Brooklyn update

Brooklyn is about 6 months old now and a crawling machine.  It’s a milestone we’ve looked forward to for awhile but now that she’s crawling everywhere, it’s something we forget how tiresome it can be keeping up with her and ensuring she’s not getting into anything.

When we’re not chasing her around the house, we’re doing everything we can do make her laugh…

Blessing Brooklyn

We were able to bless Brooklyn in our home on Sunday, August 29th. It was a lot of fun being able to do so with close family and friends participating.  Bishop Thomson came and welcomed everyone after which the blessing circle was created, which quickly became the circle of heat.… Read the rest »

I command you

The other day, Tyler pointed to a fly on the ceiling and shouted “I command you to get down.”  We’ve yet to figure out where he learned this but thought it was strangely awesome!

Brooklyn has been congested these past few days which upsets her and therefore ultimately keeps Lindsey and me awake at night.  But she’s too cute to be frustrated at 3 in the morning when I’m holding her in the rocking chair.  I love it actually but I do look forward to when she’ll be sleeping more at night.

Bike crash

Tyler has been in preschool for over a year now and always looks forward to going and playing with his friends and participating in the activities.  It’s been wonderful because he’s opened up and has become the social boy at his school, talking to and including everyone.  Lindsey volunteers in the classroom regularly and when she does, Kaitlyn comes with her and participates with the class.  Kaitlyn enjoys this but still tends to be a bit weary when someone she doesn’t know tries to include her.

Lindsey was cutting Tyler’s toenails today and one of the clippings flew into her mouth.  Tyler thought it was the funniest thing ever.  This of course was right after he cried for 30 minutes … Read the rest »
