8 Month Letter

Dear Brynlee,
You my little girl are SO much fun!! Oh man your personality is so adorable and cute in every way. We just love soaking you up. You keep us all laughing. Your brothers and sister just adore you and you have a special place in your daddys heart. I hate to admit it but I think you are a bit more of a daddys girl. The second you see him your little legs go crazy and you insist on him holding you most of the evening once hes home. You are so loved by so many and not just by family. You have a special place in alot of peoples hearts. I just love everything about you!! You have been sleeping in your crib until the last few days due to illness but Ill post about that later. You still only roll. No crawling yet. You are perfect at sitting up on your own. You LOVE food. You much rather eat our food then a bottle. You love when we give you tastes of our food that are soft enough we can share. You eat baby food 3 times a day and have recently started gerber treats at least once a day. You are good with your fingers and feeding yourself your treats. You still love being swaddled to fall asleep but by the end of the night you are completely unwrapped. You are always smiling. You have found your voice and love sharing it with everyone. Your favorite thing to do is play peek-a-boo. You do it so adorable too! You have started dancing and oh my its ADORABLE! You are still chunky and I hope you stay that way for a long time :-) I love every single roll! I took you to the doctor the day you turned 8 months and you were 19 lbs 11 ounces. Brynlee please stay the way you are for a while cause we love everything about you!!
Love, Mommy 

The day she turned 8 months. We were at the doctor when this was taken :-(

Valentines Day!

Im not a huge Valentines fan. I have the thinking that I rather Kamrin surprise me with flowers or whatever he chooses to surprise me with to show me he is thinking of me and loves me on any other day of the year then the one day he is "supposed" to. Dont get me wrong I love getting spoiled and being told what I mean to him even on that day but I just rather him do huge celebrations or surprises on other days cause lets be honest its not really a surprise receiving something from your loved one on Valentines Day. With that said I dont let my kids know Im not a fan of it and I still make it fun and special for them. I know not every girl feels the way I do so I will teach my sons to pamper their girlfriends/wives that day. On Tuesday Kamrin walked it from work with beautiful flowers that were mostly purple cause its my favorite color and my favorite treat chocolate covered strawberries! I didnt expect it at all!! See thats the part I love the most!! I may or may not have eaten every single strawberries that night :-)
Valentines morning I got the kids ready and took the oldest 2 to school. They both were so excited for their parties and to hand out the Valentines they had picked. When they got home from school they showed each other all the cards and candy they had got. That night for dinner I made our traditional meal. When Kamrin and I first met our first romantic dinner I put together for him I made malibu chicken and ever since then thats what he requests for special occasions and every Valentines. It was very low key night and thats exactly how I love it! We will go out on a date soon but on Valentines we like being at home with our kids and not having to wait 2 hours to eat.
Horrible mom alert!! I somehow missed getting a pic of Jaydan :-(

With Jaydans birthday being in June we werent going to get his pictures done so he just wore normal clothes to the shoot. When we got there Kamrin saw this awesome door and whispered to me he wanted Jaydans picture taken in his street clothes in front of it which I agreed would look cool so we asked the photographer and they turned out really good!
