A "little" Brynn update

Brynn had her 15 month appointment a few weeks ago. If you remember at her 1 year appt, she was in the 1.8% in her weight. We were hoping that percentage would go up by her 15 month check-up. But, unfortunately, it didn't. She had gained 2 lbs, now a whopping 18 lbs. Her percantages had gone up in height and head, but her weight % had gone down. She was now in 1.0%. Anyway, our doctor and friend said she was not at all worried something was wrong, probably just the way she is built. Not to mention the fact she is super busy!!! But, she referred us to a nutritionist just to see if maybe she could give us some ideas on how to hide calories. Anyway, we are working on that that, basically putting butter on anything and everything.

While we were waiting for the nutritionist, Brynn was showing off in the waiting room!

The next day, she demolished a cookie in her carseat and thought it was pretty funny!
And, then just as we were getting into a routine of eating and trying new foods....she got sick. The past couple of days have been spent cleaning and washing and holding this one! I hate when my kids are sick. It rarely happens, so when they go down, they go down!!! Everytime she threw up, it would scare her to death. She would scream and shake and it broke my heart!
But, the one positive side of being sick, which Laci and Megan have learned, is that if you are do not have to share you Sonic drink!!!! Brynnie loved her very own Sonic coke.
She is finally feeling better this morning and hopefully no one else will get sick!!!

Talent Show 2012

Last week Laci's school had their annual talent show. Each year a goup of girls from Laci's grade does a little dance. This year they were the 2nd Grade Surfer Girls. They had surfboards and pigtails were just precious!

I made up/taught the dance and Brad cut the surfboards. Another mom ordered these adorable outfits for the girls. And, her along with a couple of other moms painted and personalized the boards!!!
The girls did a great job and it's so fun watching an idea I had a year ago come to life on stage!

Now the big test will come next year when I have a 3rd grader and a kindergartener!!
2 routines?....we will just have to see!!!!
