Brecklynn is 3 months!! (3 new posts too)

This is a bit overdue but Brecklynn is now 3 months old. I cannot believe how fast time is flying....

She is such a great baby. We had to take her to a cardiologist appointment because the Dr. heard a heart murmur and with Curtis' family history with heart problems, wanted to make sure everything was ok. She is thankfully ok but we also got to weigh her since there is no 3 month appointment. She's getting bigger. Now she's 24 inches long and weighs 11 lbs. and 7 oz.

Some fun things about Brecklynn, she now can roll over from her tummy to her back. She does it all the time. She loves to talk to people. She doesn't like to be held close to the body. She likes to be out where she can see and talk to you. She is such a smiley baby and coos and talks all the time. She has the cutest little laugh and gets so excited. Curtis makes this one sound that just gets her going. So cute.

Over the last month she has become and even easier baby. I could probably keep her for preschool more because she is so easy but thankfully my mother-in-law and grandma are so willing to help take her for that bit. Really has helped out a ton. You can leave her down on the chair and she'll sit and talk to herself for a long time. I swear she is teething just like Ridge did at her age. Her front is always soaked and she loves to eat her hands or someone else's. Curtis calls her a shark when she's going for someone's finger. Hilarious. She loves to stand. Probably not the best yet for her but she just likes to be up. Its great seeing her personality come out more and more.

Brecklynn and Darrek. They truly look like twins. I need to post some of the better pictures that depict that but its truly amazing!! We put them in pumpkin outfits and took a few shots just for fun. So neat watching these two grow up together.


I'm having fun taking pics of Cambree. She is always asking me to take her picture and poses herself. Here's some fun ones...

Preschool Halloween Party

Yesterday was our Preschool Halloween Party. I always get so stressed over these little things, and I don't know why. It was a lot of fun and thankfully, the weather was absolutely perfect. The only hard thing was Ridge wanting everyone's candy, and all the kids being on an extreme sugar high. Other than that, it was a lot of fun.

This was a picture I took of Cambree before the party and it was the only decent looking one with the exception it was completely blown in the original and so the only way to make it somewhat ok was to change it to this color scheme. Oh well :)

Here's the party set up. There was also two of the preschool tables on the grass.

Ridge obliged and at least wore his shirt and tool belt this time. That's something at least.

Doing cookie decorating, and popcorn monster hands....

I had two mom's come to help with the party and they each put on a game. This one was bowling. Really cute. The other was candy corn relay. Funny to watch the kids try to grasp the concept of the games.

Another terribly lighted picture but I didn't realize it till too late..its all the kids dressed up. Super cute.

We ended the party with the kids singing two Halloween songs to their parents- Dracula Hunt and Mean old Witch. Way cute. I wasn't thinking and didn't take any pictures or take any video. I could kick myself. Hopefully I can get some from another parent that was there. Overall it was a success!!
