BIG Kisses!!

Jace loves to give Brooklyn kisses. We don't even have to ask or tell him to give them. He does it all on his own. He is talking more and more every day. He learned how to say baby today. I keep trying to film him saying all his other words but he must know he is on camera because he quits saying them when once I press record. He's starting to realize that Brooklyn actually exists and is here to stay. His new favorite toy is the baby in the swing. He is usually pretty gentle with the baby. Notice the poking towards the end of the video. Maybe we will work on that tomorrow (and the next day!)

SooOOo Cute!

Well, not too much new to write about. I just wanted to post this cute picture of my babies. Do they get any cuter than this?

While I Was Out....

So a couple of weeks ago, Trev was going to go camping at our ward's mens campout. He suggested that I go to one of my sisters houses with Jace to get out of the house and so I wouldn't be lonely. So I went up to Tara's house Friday afternoon and stayed until Saturday afternoon (that's when we made all of those bows...a couple of blogs ago..). Anyway, when I came back, much to my surprise, Trevor hadn't gone camping at all, but had enlisted several of his friends (thanks Cam, Zak, and Paul) to help him paint and put up paneling in Jace's new room. (We're moving him from the nursery to what used to be our computer room/office, so that the baby can be in the nursery). I was SO surprised! We had talked about changing the room, but I saw no possibility in it happening before the baby was born, and I really didn't want to have all the paint fumes with a brand new baby in the house. I seriously have the best husband in the world! He is always doing the sweetest things, and surprising me with stuff like this. It looks so good! The pictures really don't do it justice. Here are some before and after shots. I'll take more pictures with Jace's stuff in there once we get it all moved over.

More of our Beautiful Baby Girl!

Thanks to the creative talents of my sister, here are some more layouts of our perfect baby girl. (I am loving digital scrapbooking!) Brooklyn is one week old today! I can't believe how fast time has flown by. She is such a good baby. We have hardly heard her cry. She is still so tiny. Life with two is going to be crazy. Thankfully Trevor had the last week off and Tara is going to spend the next week down here helping me out. Shelly has offered to take Jace the following week which will be very helpful. I am so lucky to have so many people to help me. Jace is adjusting better than I thought with having Brooklyn home. He loves to help me burp her and to shove her pacifier in her mouth. He is always trying to pull the bows out of her hair, poke her in the face and put his fingers in her mouth. She is going to be one tough girl. He hates it when she is sad. (Which is seldom.) If she cries, he cries. He is going to be a great big brother! I am so blessed to have two beautiful, healthy babies. I am so thankful that I get to be their mom!!

Our Girl is Here!

Brooklyn Nicole arrived yesterday at 2:23 P.M. She weighed 6lbs 9oz and was 19.5 inches long. She has a ton of dark brown hair. I don't think any of these pictures will show just how much hair she has. I am still in the hospital so my sister is posting these pictures for me. I will write more about the labor and birth in my next blog. This little girl is simply beautiful! Enjoy! (Click on the pictures to make them bigger.)

One Happy (and very Cute) Family!
