Just a few things about the Brookers now that she is 19.5 months old. -She absolutely loves to help out around the house.  -If she could be outside 23 hours a day she would (the other hour would be reserved for playing with her toy kitchen).  The second she hears a bird she stops everything that she is doing, stands like a statue and watches the bird until it flies away. -She finally can tolerate sand.   -That little face.

I wrote this post the week before Thanksgiving but sometimes it takes me awhile to finally push the ‘send to blog’ button on things that really mean a lot to me. My blog is my journal and this is a story that I want to remember forever and ever so here it is.   One day this last week I was having a really hard day.  I was just sitting on the floor in my bedroom and Brooke was on […]

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

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: Exhibit B: I think she is loving our 25 days of Christmas traditions so far. This […]

Somehow this little girl just gets cooler and more amazing every day. It has been a while since I did an update on HRG Baby so here are a few of Brooke’s latest and greatest things at 14.5 months old.   1.  Let’s start out with her sleeping schedule.  I don’t know how this happened but it did.  She sleeps from 8 pm to 8 am.  She has turned into a champion sleeper and takes one nap during the day […]

Don’t even ask me how Brookers is already 11 months old.  I think someone is playing a cruel trick on me and making time go by way too fast.   Brooke is definitely our little best buddy and makes everything we do that much more fun because seeing her reactions to life is the best.   Her favorite foods at 11 months old are edamame, popsicles, grapes (red grapes), salmon, sweet potatoes, broccoli (I knew I loved her) and bites […]

I get a bunch of emails and comments asking about how breastfeeding is going for me so I finally got around to writing a post about it:)  I didn’t ever talk about breastfeeding on the blog when I lost my milk because I felt really bad about it (like really bad) but I now realize I did everything I could even though I didn’t ‘make it a year.’   I was able to breastfeed Brooke for 4.5 months and then […]
