Father's Day at Grandma Renee's

After church, we headed over to Grandma Renee and Grandpa Javier's house for a cookout with the family. We had such a great time! Brooklynn had a blast in the swimming pool (she loved the slide)...kid size of course:). She got to see and play with her cousins Kaleb and Dina; they all had so much fun! We ate so much food that we could barely move! Grandma Renee bought the girls matching 4th of July outfits, so we got some great pictures of them! I'm going to make 4th of July cards to send out to the family (yay for being on the ball this year...hahaha)!

We had such a wonderful Father's Day!

This car is driving me nuts!!!

Brooklynn's Uncle Tommy and Auntie Jessica bought Brooklynn this little car for her
1st birthday and she just LOVES it! It was so cute to watch her push it around and put her toys in the seat (that lifts up for secret storage:). Then, I made the mistake of taking her outside and pushing her up and down the sidewalk on it. Now, she wants me to push her around all day everyday. My back is failing me from leaning over to push her around! Haha! I used to keep it down in the living room, but she would push it over to me, get on it, and stare at me like, "Come on Mommy, what's the hold up?" I thought it was cute at first, but now it's driving me crazy! The other day I was washing dishes and I turn around and she pushed the car over to her high chair and was standing on the seat of it while holding onto the highchair! Yikes! That's when the car went up to the playroom. That, however, has not stopped Bird from demanding her rides. Yesterday, she pushes it over to me while we were playing in her play room, and gets on it backwards and throws a complete fit until I push her around. Around the playroom, around our bedroom, around her bedroom, and down the hallway. Oh, and then the temper tantrum began when I stopped. Okay, I'm seriously putting that car in the garage when I get home today...

Brooklynn's Nursery and Playroom

I just realized that I've never taken any pictures of Brooklynn's nursery or playroom!! Sooo, today I finally snapped some! Now, please no flaming for the canopy over the crib...it's usually hanging on the back wall, but I put it up for the picture. Also, I totally cut the last -N off of Brooklynn's name in the picture, but, yes, it's spelled with 2 -Ns, not one:).

Ear Tubes...

On Thursday, June 3rd, Bird got ear tubes and her tongue clipped. After multiple ear infections and failing a hearing test, the ENT doctor decided that tubes would be our best bet. Grandma Renee went with me and Brooklynn on the big day (thank you so much Renee for the support and help...we love you:). Brooklynn did so awesome! She couldn't eat anything until her surgery was finished...poor baby. It was harder on me than it was her:). I went back when they put her to sleep and she was holding onto my finger so tightly. They put the gas mask on her and she started crying...me too. Then, her little body just went limp and she let go of my finger. Ugh. It was so hard to watch that. However, the surgery only lasted about 20 minutes and Brooklynn woke up a little disoriented, but was fine about an hour later. Now, we have a happy, pain free baby! Yay for ear tubes!!!

Playing with mommy:

"Look mommy, I'm like Georgia dog!"

"Ummm, can someone get me out of here?"

Coming out of surgery:

Yes, it was a long day, but it was so worth it. Bird is so much happier now that she's not in pain anymore. Thank you, ear tubes!
