Time for a post!!!
I feel like such a dweeb. I realized for the first time today since I've started this blog over a year ago, that people comment on blogs! I just read all my comments that I never knew I had and it was exciting. I could definitely have more fun with this whole blogging thing if I know I have the possibility of getting comments! Haha. I am so blog illiterate, but that's ok because I'm learning =). Now that it's been like 3 months since I've posted anything, I figure the suspense of what's been going on in our lives is too much to bear so I guess I could write a little something. Brooklynn is almost 15 months and is such a little wild woman! I love it because she just loves to play and explore and make messes. I really don't mind because I like seeing these good developmental milestones and plus I just think kids should be able to make messes and enjoy their world. She keeps me on my toes though, that's for sure. She is walking, running, and even talking. She can say "Jesus" really clearly which is so sweet. She loves to walk down the halls of church and find all the pictures of Jesus and then wave at him and say "hi Jesus!" She can say a few other words too and will mimic almost any animal sound. I'm slowly weaning her and she is doing really well! I didn't want to traumatize her so I am dropping one feeding per month and that has seemed to be a good pace for both of us. As for Russell, he is waiting to hear back from BYU about grad school (I'm waiting just as anxiously!!). He applied for the MPA program and we should know in the next week. Hopefully it will work out! Oh, last friday we took Brookie sledding for the first time and it was so fun! She looked like a little oompa loompa in her snow suit. I just love that baby! We have been taking walks on nice days and she will just sit down on the ground and start eating leaves and sticks if I don't intervene. She loves playing outside and exploring. I'm really excited for spring and summer so that we can be warm while exploring and playing! She doesn't seem to mind the cold but I do! Anyways, that's our update. Here are a bunch of pictures too. Now if you comment I'll actually read them!! haha!
