Another tooth!

Ok, so I know I just posted a little while ago and then I felt in Brynlyn's mouth again and her other bottom tooth is through! Maybe that's why she has been so dang grouchy still. So we have 2 teeth and I saw them but they are barely through the gums. Cool huh.

A Tooth! A Tooth!

We have a tooth! (By we I mean that I have all of mine still and that Brynlyn has her first one). So Tuesday after weeks of grouchiness and much whining her little tooth on the bottom left side finally poked through her gums. She is still a huge grouch and it is still bugging her, but hey at least it popped through! So that is the news here. Once it comes in more I will post a picture. As of right now I have only felt it because she won't let me look in her mouth - she covers it with her tongue.

Time flies

...when you are so dang busy! Being a mom IS a full time job, I don't care what anyone else says. So anyways it has been awhile but it is just the same old stuff for us. I work and play with Bryn and we have fun. This past week and a half I have been getting up sometime between 6 and 7 am because that is when Brynlyn is getting up and I HATE IT! I am not a morning person and so maybe this is Heavenly Father's way of trying to get me into the habit. That doesn't mean I have to like it though. I found out that Justin got me an elliptical for my birthday. The story goes like this: The doorbell rang and the UPS guy delivered an exercise bike and I thought well, it's no elliptical but it will work. (I have been hinting I wanted an elliptical for a while now). So I called Justin and he said, "what?!? I got you an elliptical". So I called the company and they had no record that a bike was sent to us and they informed me that our elliptical should be here in about 5 or 6 weeks. They were going to have someone call me to figure out the mistake a week and a half ago and no one ever did. So basically we have a free exercise bike and the elliptical should be here in a few weeks. Not that we really need the bike or have anywhere to put it but hey free is free right? And the weird thing is I signed for the bike and it has our name on it and everything. So I have no idea what the heck happened. Well here are my pictures for the week. This one is Bryn playing with a water bottle that I always give her when I am doing the dishes. She loves to squeeze it but of course as soon as I got the camera out she wouldn't do it anymore.
And I just love this little dress so I did another portrait of her. I think by the time I have more kids I will have a million pictures of Bryn!
So anyways th..th..th..that's all folks! See ya!

Family Pics and other news

So we finally got our family pictures and Bryn's official 6 month pictures done. We went to this old shed and took some cool photos. It was fun but hot outside. Kaylea did a great job and here are a few of my faves. This is just a family shot:
I love this shot of Bryn:
Justin and I:
The cutie pie:
Bryn and I:
And, finally, getting kisses from Daddy: Well we had fun taking them and I think they turned out great (except I need to lose 30 lbs.). Well Bryn also went to the Dr for her 6 month visit and she is super healthy. She weighs 18 lbs. 9 oz. and is 26.5 in long. She makes me so happy and I love my little family so much!!

Happy Birthday to me!

Well I am officially 26 now. I can't believe that's how old I am now. It feels like I just graduated yesterday! Well anyways I had a pretty peaceful day just hanging with Bryn and trying to kick our colds. Then when Justin got home we watched a few episodes of 24 season 1 which we are watching for the second time. I love that show. Then I made him watch an episode of Buffy with me and he complained but then he watched the whole thing. And I don't know what he got me because he ordered it online late and it hasn't come yet but he wants it to be a surprise and wouldn't tell me what it is, so when I find out what it is I'll post it. And I did take a picture of Bryn for her 6 month picture although Kaylea is going to be taking family pics soon. And that was my day. See ya!

Idaho Trip

Alright we are finally home and I finally have time to post! We had a great time in Idaho seeing all our family! We flew to Couer d'Alene on Saturday and visited with my Grandparents and all my aunts and uncles and cousins that I haven't seen in years. Then on Sunday we went to church and then went to a park right on the shore of Lake Couer d'Alene that was so green and pretty. This is my Grandpa Rebal and Bryn at the park.
Later that afternoon we walked out on the dock and took some more pics. It was gorgeous. The next picture is in my grandparents backyard which is so green and pretty. Here is Bryn with her Great Grandma and Grandpa. It was so fun seeing them together.This is us in the backyard too. I like the trees and flowers that my grandparents work so hard to keep pretty. I don't have the desire or the climate to do that so it was nice to see their efforts paid off.
On Wednesday we went down to Boise and met our new niece Tenley and visited with Rachelle and Heather and her kids. This is a picture of all 4 of them at the Boise zoo in an egg. It was funny trying to get them all in there. They sure are 4 cute girlies! From the left is Tenley being held by Sydney, then Mallory and finally Brynlyn.
And we had a great time bumming around Boise too. We ate at the Cheesecake Factory and got to see Rachelle's house and just relax a little. Vacations are always nice but I love coming home and sleeping in my own bed too. Justin caught a cold in Idaho and gave it to me and Bryn. It is not fun and Bryn can barely breathe through her nose at all. On Monday we spent the day with Justin's family swimming and having a picnic. The pool was so warm and we played volleyball and my team lost but it was a blast. I even have a small tan line from my swimsuit now! Well I better go! See ya!
