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!!!!

Michelle @ A Healthy Mrs December 8, 2013 at 3:25 pm

Kris @ Canadian Girl Runs. December 8, 2013 at 3:26 pm

Soooo adorable!


Elizabeth @ my neon running shoes December 8, 2013 at 3:32 pm

We have the economy size goldfish too :-) I figure goldfish to them is like dessert for us!


hilary December 8, 2013 at 3:34 pm

such a little cutie!


ari @ whatarisaid December 8, 2013 at 3:34 pm

What a doll! And I’m impressed she knows how to hold the phone properly, my friend’s kid puts it behind his head lol. And wow she has a lot of teeth! :)


Runner Girl Eats December 8, 2013 at 3:36 pm

Seriously, she is the cutest little girl in the whole wide world. I am obsessed with her pig tails!


Rebecca December 8, 2013 at 3:39 pm

Is that a Xmas tree shirt? So cute!

Max does the phone talking thing too! He also does that to spoons, brushes or anything else he can find!


Losing Lindy December 8, 2013 at 3:39 pm

love her, she is great… honestly I am scared about V with adult front teeth..I know he will no longer look like a little kid.


Allie (Live Laugh Eat) December 8, 2013 at 3:43 pm

Carboloading, staying hydrated, and strengthening her calves. She’s gonna be speedy like her mama!


HollieisFueledByLOLZ December 8, 2013 at 3:47 pm

Ha she is just so cute. I am loving that fur coat photo LOL.


Jackie December 8, 2013 at 3:48 pm

She is precious!


Livi December 8, 2013 at 3:49 pm

Kristina @ Blog About Running December 8, 2013 at 3:49 pm

Look how tall she is getting! I can’t believe she can reach the top of the water fountain!! Those phone pictures are seriously too cute. Like mother, like daughter :)


Dani December 8, 2013 at 3:50 pm

She is simply amazing. Love every second, they go by too quickly!


Nikki @ will run for pizza December 8, 2013 at 3:52 pm

OH. MY. GOSH. Those phone pics of her are waaaaaay too cute for her own good. And that little sweater with the pink leggings is ADORABLE! I need a little minion of my own to play dress up with so I quit stalking yours. ;)


meredith @ The Cookie ChRUNicles December 8, 2013 at 3:54 pm

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.


Linda @running4two December 8, 2013 at 3:54 pm

Love HRG baby :-). Calf definition!


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

Wow I wish I had an economy size box of goldfish in our house! I know they wouldn’t last long though – I am with Brooke one of my favorite snacks is goldfish too!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!! :)


Kim @ Hungry Healthy Girl December 8, 2013 at 4:14 pm

Adorable! Her little teefy grin is the cutest!


Lauren December 8, 2013 at 4:26 pm

It cannot get any cuter than Brooke. Seriously.


Katie Did What December 8, 2013 at 4:29 pm

The hands talking!! SO CUTE.



april December 8, 2013 at 4:34 pm

brooke is just the cutest… and she has the best wardrobe! :)


Molly December 8, 2013 at 4:42 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!


Amanda @ .running with spoons. December 8, 2013 at 4:45 pm

I can’t even handle the cuteness. You two are absolutely perfect for each other <3


Sam @ Better With Sprinkles December 8, 2013 at 4:46 pm

She’s such a cute little girl!


Lisa @ runningoutofwine December 8, 2013 at 4:47 pm

She is just too cute! I love how her little teeth look! Her outfits are always so cute so I can see why dressing her is the highlight of your day:)


Jane December 8, 2013 at 4:49 pm

I wish I could wear tiny little braids like hers are in that one picture above!!! Super cute!


Colleen December 8, 2013 at 4:52 pm

EEEEE!! Gosh she is just too cute. Her outfits are precious and I would love getting a baby dressed daily, too! Her tantrum reason/pic made me LOL!


Nancy December 8, 2013 at 5:00 pm

She’s such a little sweetie. I want to hug her!!


Miranda @ Lovely Wife Lovely Life December 8, 2013 at 5:00 pm

Smart girl… knows Goldfish are the best food ever ;)


Ashley December 8, 2013 at 5:05 pm

HAHA talking with her hands- that is so adorable!


Michelle December 8, 2013 at 5:27 pm

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!


Elise @ 9toFit.com December 8, 2013 at 5:38 pm

haha she has better calves the me!


Leah @ Running with the Hayneses December 8, 2013 at 5:43 pm

hahaha! I noticed her calf right before I read your comment about it! Pretty impressive muscles there! :)


Sanaz @ runforcake December 8, 2013 at 7:46 pm

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.


Kristi December 8, 2013 at 9:53 pm

I feel like I say this on every post, but she is the cutest. I love to see how much she is changing, and growing! And her vest… LOVE.


Kari @ Running Ricig December 9, 2013 at 5:22 am

Brooke has the cutest wardrobe I have ever seen!


Shannon December 9, 2013 at 7:18 am

Wow! How could there be so much sugar in one little package? :) Love the pictures of her talking on the phone too much!


Crystal@TheFastFitRunner December 9, 2013 at 8:20 am

I am obsessed with her little calves! Thanks for pointing that out.


Lina December 9, 2013 at 9:42 am

Ali December 9, 2013 at 10:39 am

Her little personality just shines through in all those pictures… how sweet!


Kay December 9, 2013 at 10:42 am

Emily December 9, 2013 at 11:54 am

Ashten @ Southern class and a bit of Sass December 9, 2013 at 12:27 pm

Seriously she is the cuttest little munchkin! & I want all of her outfits. :)


Lynz December 9, 2013 at 12:50 pm

MILF Runner December 9, 2013 at 2:10 pm

I like the tantrum pic :) Kids are so silly!


michelle kim December 9, 2013 at 3:00 pm

Leigha @ Minougirl December 9, 2013 at 3:16 pm
