Our Missy B Is Turning Three!

She was born three years ago today, and boy have our lives changed!
Brooke is such a fun three year old these days!! She has become quite adventurous over the last few months and loves to jump off of anything and everything. Brooke loves being a big-sister and is so sweet with Summer. She always lets us know when Summer needs something and is the first to go and find the paci for her. It's amazing how much she can change in just three years!!

Family Pictures 2009

Last Saturday we had our photographer friend Sarah take some family photos for us again. Here are last years. It's amazing how much Brooke has grown up in a year!
It was pretty cold out, but Brooke and Summer both did pretty well. By the end of it, Summer had really had it, and fell asleep in the stroller by the time we walked back to the car. We're always so happy with the pictures Sarah gets for us and this time isn't any different! Thanks Sarah!!

A Catch Up of Sorts

Well, I will attempt to try and catch things up here. Early this month we and my side of the family, all traveled to Austin for our cousin Steven's wedding. It was a long drive and a very short visit so we didn't really get to visit with our cousin or get to know his bride Crystal, but, we did get to visit with my grandma, Dranny, for a bit. It has been six years since our last trip to Tx to see the Wood side of the family. We were all sad however that our grandpa, PomPom, couldn't be there since he was unable to travel from his home. But, we all had a good time, and Brooke and Summer did really well on the long drives.

Since our trip we've just been hanging out at home and with family. Summer had a quick check up when we got back to check her weight and she is doing great! She finally got over all the congestion and coughing and is working hard on rolling over! She's managed to roll from belly to back a couple of times so far! Brooke has been enjoying having her friend Nat back with us a few days a week. Here are just a few fun pics...

Cute Story

So earlier today as we were getting ready to go visit family, Brooke was getting a little whiny about something (I don't remember what) in our bedroom. Bill picked up a Hershey's Kiss from our dresser and asked Brooke if she wanted a Kiss. She said "yes", then pointed the the Kisses left on the dresser and said, "I want one of those too."

Three Months and Halloween

Well, it's become quite obvious to me that I am no better at keepin gup with a blog than I am at keeping a persoanl journal. But, I will continue to post when I can...

Last week, Summer turned three months old. I have no idea how much she weighs, but she goes in for a weight check next week. I hope that she is atleast 12lbs, but we shall see. Summer loves to smile. She hasn't laughed for us yet, but not for lack of our trying. Poor thing is still trying to get over a bad cough and has been having trouble sleeping, but she's getting through it pretty well.

The same day that Summer turned three months old, we went to the Zoo for trick-or-treating. We met our Lifegroup friends and had a great time. All the kids did great and had a good time. Nobody got too scared at any of the other costumes, which I was worried about, but it was a great night and great weather for the trip! Brooke was Piglet this year and she absolutely LOVED her costumer. Everytime she saw herself in the mirror or a picture she would crack up laughing at herself. I think she was a tad confused though, because she kept saying she was a bunny.
