Where is the time going?

I cannot believe that this little girl is 12 weeks old! Seriously, where did those weeks go? Brooklynn is getting so big and growing so much (in size, personality, and developmental skill), I just can't believe it. She's not my tiny little infant anymore! She is SO strong!! She stands like a pro and loves doing it. She loves, loves, loves sitting up, whether it be in her bumbo, in someone's lap, or propped up in the boppy. If she is propped up in any fashion she will grunt and groan trying to sit herself up, usually succeeding in getting her shoulders up and forward and she has even succeeded in getting enough momentum to sit forward on a rare occasion. There is no doubt in my mind that she is going to be a very active child, she is almost always on a constant move! She has always mover her arms like crazy, and now she is kicking like crazy.
What a cutie pie! Can't get enough of her!!
She seems to be becoming more and more aware of herself and things around her.She has more control of her arms and hands and is able to grab onto things. She's finally figured out that there are toys in her playmat and that she can grab onto them!
Such a smart cookie!
She continues to love her hand and always finds a way to interwine her fingers and they are almost always in her face. She has a newfound love of sucking on things, so her intertwined hands also often find themselves into her mouth (yes at the same time).
Her other newfound love is talking. She has turned into such a talker, we can't get her to stop! She loves talking so much that she will stop eating after just a few minutes so that she can talk to me! I don't think she is my daughter if talking is more interesting to her than eating!! She just might give her Aunt Ali a run for her money!
Heading out for a Saturday morning walk!
Who needs a carseat when you have a trunk!?!
Words cannot even express how much I love this little girl! She is such a blessing and a joy in our lives. I am so grateful to have the wonderful opportunity to stay home with her and spend so much time with her. She continues to constantly amaze me. Call me biased, but I think she is the smartest baby ever and I love her bright smiling face. I don't know how it's possible, but every time she smiles at me I fall deeper in love with her! 


  1. Looking more and more like Mommy every week!! Love that little cutie! Let me know next time you're headed to Wapato, maybe we can get together again!

  2. She is a cutie, I miss her sweet little person. It was fun to have her in our home for a bit. Can't wait for Jessica's wee one to come.
