The NEW addition to our family

Yes we have news - we added 3 fish to our family!!! LOL - bet you may have thought it was other news. Sorry just fish. Nick has been wanting to get Brookie some fish, I finally gave in. She loves them. I think she would have rather brought home a puppy from the pet store though. (Couldn't get Nick to go for that!)Nick has promised that the fish will be his deal - I do not want anything to do with cleaning the tank...

Funny Brooklynn story - She is now tall enough to open up the drawers on our kitchen buffet. We keep our keys and garage opener in there. This morning Nick went to open the garage, and what do you know, we couldn't find the opener. We both looked and looked. Finally it dawned on me, I have been catching her with our keys and the opener. I don't let her play with them I always have her put them back ad tell her not to touch them. I asked Brooklynn if she knew where the garage opener was - she said "Sure" and walked over to the entertainment center and opened the drawer, "Here Mama". Well, at least she remembered where she put it!! I am moving the keys and garage controller to the top of the fridge. It was funny - but I can see them getting lost very quickly!! She is too smart!!! Hope everyone has a great weekend!

What a day...

So what the heck - I am sick with a pretty bad head cold.... Why am I sick again???? Argh!
Anyway - Disney on ice was great Brooklynn loved it and sat in amazement for the first half. After intermission she was a little restless, but did great! I loved it too! It was right up my alley - I love Disney anything!

Valentines day was nice. Friday Nick and I went out for dinner at Texas Roadhouse. Saturday we had a nice night at home just the 3 of us and we all played with play dough!! Nick earned BIG brownie points by making Brooklynn and I valentine cards.

Friday Brooklynn had her doctor check up. She is almost 32 inches tall and 25lbs. She was talking so much in the room that the doctor didn't even ask me what she all does - he just said he can tell she is developing just fine! She got 3 shots. The first 2 she watched and didn't even cry, the last shot they gave her was the chicken pox one and that went in her tricep - she cried for that one and it was bleeding so much it got all over her bear!
Enjoy the new pictures on flickr.

This is Brooklynn's new rain coat - she loves to wear it all the time!!!

Sassy Buns

Brooklynn must know I have TONS to do today! I need to work, finish laundry, clean the house and pack for us to go up north tonight. Out of all the days she decided not to take a morning nap -it's today!!! Oh well.... She is really a little spite-fire lately. Telling me no, throwing mini tantrums when she doesn't get her way and the occasional hitting when she is mad. Does the terrible 2's start at 19 months or is this just the beginning??

Well we are off to Lake Winnebago tonight. I will be working from up there. Saturday Brooklynn and I are coming home and on our way home we have a memorial in East Troy to stop in at, then Saturday night we are taking Brooklynn to Disney on Ice (Nick got free tickets, we will see how she does) and Sunday I have a baby shower. I am already tired thinking about the busy weekend. It will be fun though!

So - I have been thinking about starting to potty train Brooklynn. She sits on her potty and makes the appropriate noises for what potty she is pretending to go. I am thinking of waiting another month - because she tells me while she is going number 2 not before she goes and she never tells me when she goes number 1. Any thoughts???
Enjoy the pictures of Brooklynn - I love the one where she is laying down watching Barney!!!

This is my wish... LOL

We are all better

Wow that flu is no joke. Luckily we are all better now and finally have energy again! We have had a great and busy weekend so far. Friday night I hosted a Lia Sophia Party. It was a lot of fun and I got to put by "bartending skills" to use. Thank you to everyone who came - I had a blast!!
Last night we went to a family friend's birthday bash - Happy B'Day Kent!! It was great to be able to catch up with a lot of people who we haven't seen in such a long time. We weren't able to stay too long - Brooklynn was starting to have melt downs, so that was our cue to leave.
Today will be a quiet day at our house with food and football. Hope everyone enjoys the superbowl and the commercials!!!
