At that garage sale I also bought this little doll cradle for $1. I didn't even notice until I got home that it is the exact material that Brooklyn's bedroom has in it. The kids love playing with it. It's pretty sturdy, so it can handle both of them in it without breaking.They love pushing each other around in it:

I went to a few garage sales for fun last Saturday. I scored some awesome deals. I bought this race track for Brayden's birthday but was too excited to just put it away. So we set it up and showed him how to use the remote. We had a lot of fun with it, but then took it down and put it away. Hopefully he'll forget about it by the time his birthday rolls around. It will be fun to play with during the winter.

What happens when you leave the fridge open too long without paying attention? One sneaky little girl chowing down. It's amazing what they're able to do once they get 5 teeth coming in at the same time!

Because everyone was busy, we celebrated Brooklyn's b-day the night before. On her actual birthday we tried to just have fun. After playing all morning, the kids took their naps. Then we started playing again waiting for dad to get home. We ended up outside and within seconds the kids were covered in dirt from head to toe. Since it was her birthday, I let Brooklyn enjoy.
Naturally a bath came next:Once Josh got home we headed off to Chick-fil-a for dinner. The kids ate and played in the playland. They even gave Brooklyn a balloon!Rachael gave Brooklyn a new swing for the swingset, so we spent the evening playing in the backyard. Brooklyn was in the swing the whole time.

I can't believe my little girl is now 1! This year has gone by incredibly fast and we are having so much fun with her and her cute personality. Here are her current stats:
Height - 30 inches (75th percentile)
Weight - 17.5 lbs (5th percentile)
Long, skinny, and still growing! Most everyone was busy on her actual birthday, so we had her party on Monday night at Nevoles where Josh's brothers work. These pictures don't do justice to how cute she looked in her little party dress. (I have to admit I really enjoy dressing her up.) Here's Brooklyn w/ Dad:

I love this picture b/c the cow mooed and scared Brooklyn just as I took it. She wasn't a fan of the loud noises.

We played a quick game of Kube while the kids tried to stay entertained. Here they are playing on the tables:
