Just a little more about Brooke because I clearly don’t post enough pictures of her.

December 8, 2013

Over on the HRG Baby portion of my blog is it expected that I post a million pictures of Brooke so here ya go!

Any time that there is a phone near Brooke she puts it directly up to her ear and starts having a conversation.  She also uses her hands to tell her story…  FYI I am a hands talker too.

Exhibit A:

IMG 4843

Exhibit B:

I think she is loving our 25 days of Christmas traditions so far.

This tantrum was over the fact that I put a pair of socks on (my feet.. not her feet).  She fell asleep about 2 minutes after the picture was taken.

I thought I would miss her toothless smiles and I do but seeing those teeth of hers is my absolute favorite.

Goldfish are her current favorite food.

Photographer in the making.

Getting her ready is one of the highlights of the day for me.

We no longer are able to walk by a drinking fountain without stopping and playing with it for at least 7 minutes.

PS look at her little calf definition:)

Hope you are having a great Sunday!!!!

Love the pictures of Brooke on the phone! My son used to do that at that age- it was just the cutest cutest thing! Especially when they talk with their hands and half of what they say is gibberish.

Jamie December 8, 2013 at 4:02 pm

She is so cute and getting so big! Love her christmas tree shirt. Had to share with you that my latest issue of Runner’s World came and my 3 1/2 yr old looked at the cover and said “Is that hungry runner girl?” Ummmm, guess I talk about you a lot.

Sara @ LovingOnTheRun December 8, 2013 at 4:11 pm

I think this is my first comment, but I have been reading along for a while now. I just wanted to say that Brooke is absolutely precious and your love for her shines through!
Also, I am using that 2 mile + 5 min strength break this week. I always dread my long treadmill run, and this sounds like a good way to break it up!

She is just the cutest. The talking with the hands is the BEST!!

I don’t even want to to think about E getting all of his teeth (he has his bottom two – I’m in denial about him getting more). I am just soaking in these gummy smiles since they will be my last. *sob*

Brittany December 8, 2013 at 5:30 pm

That little Christmas outfit you have Brooke in is THE CUTEST OUTFIT EVER. And with that little hair tie with it? I don’t have any children yet, but I’m hoping that I have a girl and I can put all of the big flower headbands, hair ties, and other hair things on her always. So cute!

She is the cutest. I think we should have a play date and our little girls can play. I swear I see my daughters mannerisms in Brooke. I’m sure they would be the bestest of friends.
