Well, another week has gone by. Try as I might I just can't seem to stop the days from going by! And boy are they going by! It would even be nice if I could just slow down the pace of time...but no, we just can't control time.
Brooklynn continues to be a happy baby. She is still all about her hands and they are now constantly in her mouth. She prefers to suck on her index and middle fingers, but will occasionally just suck on her pointer or will add it to her other two. She is one of the slobberiest (spell check tells me this is not a word, but it should be) babies I know! She will soak through a teething bib (it is not confirmed as to whether or not she is actually teething) in less than an hour! She loves to put anything she gets her hands on into her mouth. She has recently become more interested in toys and her favorite is a little cow that we have named Molly. The look on her face when she she's Molly is very determined and says, "I am going to get you!" and then she does! Her grip and her grasp are improving, she still has a hard time holding onto things for long periods.

I am so grateful that I am able to stay home with Brooklynn. It is such a blessing for me to be able to spend so much time with my sweet little girl and to have as much time as I have with her (even if it goes by way too fast). I love spending my day with her and being able to watch her grow and change. I love how she is so excited to see me when she wakes up from her naps (even though I know that it's not me she is happy to see, but that she is just happy that someone is coming to get her!) and sometimes her excitement even translates into exciting kicks and arm moving (if she managed to break out of her swaddling). I love that when she is really happy and excited she tries to eat me! I love how talkative she has become, especially in the morning. Most of all I just love her!
