My Little Big Girl

Bryn had her 9-month well-child appt today. She weighs 16lbs. 5oz. (10%), is 27 inches tall (31%) and her head is in the (25%). She is getting so big, but she is still so small for her age. My friend Jen's son, Cash, is 4 months old...and he had is well-child appt today too. He weighed 16lbs. 4oz. haha! He is big and she is small. There were no shots that was good! Dr. said she looks great and he is excited for her hand surgery. So the next time we go back to him his for her 1 year well-child, unless she gets sick in between!

My Brother

Check this brother made it onto OU's forum! haha


Bryn loves to twist her tongue around
Bryn was eating some baby food. She loves to smile and is such a happy baby now. She can be a goober sometimes too!


Bryn was playing peek-a-boo with me in her crib. She has been starting to pull herself up in her crib.

Bath Time

Bryn in the bath tub. She sure loves to splash in the bath. She is becoming such a happy baby! She looks like such a hillbilly with her 1 top tooth. She has a second top one that is coming in and she has 3 bottom ones in with another 1 on its way!

My Little Piano Player

Bryn had fun pounding away on the keys!

Yes... that is right. Tyler and I celebrated our 6 year anniversary last Sunday. I can't believe it has already been 6 years. We sure have been through a lot together. I am so thankful to have found such a wonderful husband. He works so hard for our family. He is a great dad to the girls. I am so glad he only has 1 year left of school! 8.5 months to be exact. And 10.5 months until he takes the bar! Tyler is one of the best things that ever happened to me and I am so lucky to be his wife. For our anniversary we didn't do too much because we are traveling down to Dallas in 2 weeks. Last Sunday we just went to church and then over to Tyler's parents house for dinner. I gave him a card that said "6 years...then to Eternity and Beyond!" I look forward to spending eternity with Tyler and working together to raise our girls!

I have to Brag

I am so proud of my hubby. I sure did miss him though this summer. He worked really hard. He worked for a judge here in the city for about 20-25 hours a week and took 2 MBA classes and 1 law class. He finally got his grades back and he made straight A's. Getting an A in a law class is pretty hard. I am so happy for him and his hard work and dedication. I love you Tyler!

Get That Out of Your Mouth

Makenna has this fixation with putting things in her mouth. She puts everything/anything in her mouth. The other day we were at Tyler's mom's house and Kenna was in the hall. Jan saw her in the hall with the plug-in air freshener in her hand. Jan took it away from her, but then noticed Kenna was holding her mouth funny. Jan asked her if she had put it in her mouth and she said yes. She had gotten to hot fragance oil in her mouth. We took her in the kitchen and rinsed out her mouth with soap. She is such a crazy nut.
A few weeks ago I bought her these cute Ariel flip flops from the Disney store. They were cute and on sale for cheap so I got them. Kenna wore them one day in the car and when I went to get her out of the car there was blue foam all over the floor. Kenna had bitten holes in the bottom of her flip flop. I swear...this kid puts everything in her mouth. I thought that stage ended when they hit about 18 months.

Landon and Bryn

Today my friend Amy came over to visit. Bryn loved having him to play with. She tried holding his hand and kept trying to roll over him! Poor Landon. He is such a cute baby! Landon is 6 weeks old and Bryn is 8.5 months old.

First Biter Bisquit

Bryn thought Makenna's popsicle looked better

The other day we gave Bryn her first Biter Bisquit. She seemed to like it okay. She at a little bit of it and then quit. So we got her a popsicle and she seemed to enjoy that much more. She loves to eat these infant rice cakes. Today she had her first ritz cracker and loved it. She also ate a breadstick. She is moving up in the world! :)

The Funniest Story I Have Heard In a Long Time

Yesterday, Tyler's grandma was robbed. The guy kicked in her carport door and came into the house. She was in the bathroom and he told her to stay in there.  She came out tried to make a call and he broke the phone. He had told her that she had a gun. She asked to see it. He pointed it to her head. Then she asked to see the bullets. He took them out of the gun and showed her. Then he took the cash out of her purse, went and grabbed and ice cream from the freezer and grabbed her purse and started leaving.  As he was leaving with her purse she said, you already took my cash please leave my purse. My drivers license is in there and they will catch you with it so you better leave...and guess what!! He left her purse! Apparently he was totally stoned. But can you imagine...Tyler's little old grandma thinking so quick on her feet!! I would have stayed in the bathroom crying hoping he would leave. We are so glad she is okay! She is so stinking hilarious!!!

Tonight was the finale of So You Think You Can Dance. It is one of my favorite shows. I love dancing and used to be an okay dancer. I haven't danced in years and I miss it so much. I love watching all the fun routines. There were quite a few routines this year that were amazing to me and there is one from last year that will probably always be my favorite. I marvel at how amazing these dancers are. I wish that I could be as good as they are. Even when I was at my best I still couldn't compete with them. There is just something about dance that I can't get enough of. It is so fun. I am so happy with who won tonight. It was who I was rooting for. I have wanted to start taking dance classes again, but since it has been so long I would probably die! haha. But, I absolutely love dancing!

They are growing Up!

A few cool things have happened this week. Kenna has been in swimming lessons for the past few weeks. On Monday we were swimming with some friends.  Up until this point she was only working on floats and could swim with floaties. She had never swam without floaties. Well Kenna ventured off the step in the pool with no floaties. My friend Jen was ready to get in the pool to save Kenna and then she started swimming back to the step. So I got in with Kenna and let her practice with no floaties. She does really well for a beginner. She doesn't like to swim above the water. She is like a mermaid swimming under the water. Her swim teacher was pretty proud of her today. Makenna also got signed up for soccer last week. She won't be starting until Sept., but we went out today and got her jersey, shorts, socks, shin guards and ball. She is so excited. We have to keep looking for shoes because they didn't have any small enough for her. She also starts gymnastics next week!

For Bryn....she ate her first "cheerio" type food today. She ate some fruit puffs today and did so well. It was so cool to watch her pick them up with her hands and put them in her mouth. She is working really hard on holding bottle by herself. She is such a fast crawler now too! You put her on the floor and she is gone. She takes after her uncle Brandon and has a BIG shoe fetish. She loves to eat shoes. Doesn't matter whose they are....she just wants them. She has been sleeping all night long. She is talking like crazy and is overall a pretty happy baby!
