|We missed the 25 week post....|
and I never even got a chance to take her 26 week picture! Ooops!
So what's been going on?!?!?
First, and foremost, we moved!!! So I have been busy packing, and now unpacking! We love our new place!! It is so nice to have a bedroom for Brooklynn (although she's been spending almost as much time in our bed as she has in hers...more on that later). It is wonderful to have more room in the living room for Brooklynn to crawl around and it is especially nice to have walking space around our bedroom furniture!! And everything will be especially nicer when it is completely unpacked and organized!
Brooklynn, as always, has been keeping me busy! She has entered the clingy stage and just wants me all the time, which makes it hard to get things done (and makes Eric sad). Poor thing got an ear infection the last week at our new place, perfect timing, right?! She was a major trooper through it all. Aside from a runny nose, occasional crankiness, and super clinginess I didn't even know she was sick. I chalked everything up to teething, until she started throwing up! She threw up 2 mornings in a row (on and in our bed) and a few times during the day, which is what made me call the doctor. Good thing I did!
Brooklynn is now 6 months old (holy cow)!!
Brooklynn has always been an active baby, but now she is constantly on the move! She has completely mastered the art of crawling. I love her "I'm moving so fast" sounds, it's very helpful to know when she is trying to sneak up on me, and they are just so darn cute! Her favorite place to crawl? The kitchen! She just loves to hang out in the kitchen!! And now that she has mastered crawling she has already moved on to trying to master walking. She pulls herself up on anything that is remotely her height, she transitions between objects, she walks along things, and she loves to walk holding your fingers (and has even gotten pretty good at walking holding onto just one finger). Brooklynn is definitely enjoying her newfound freedom to explore her new surroundings!! Nothing is safe anymore, she gets into EVERYTHING!!
|She thinks it's so cool that she can stand herself up in the tub...|
she pretty much spends all her bathtime standing now!

|She's started doing this tight lipped smile, it melts my heart just as much as.....|
|Getting into EVERYTHING!|

Just because there really aren't enough pictures of us together:
