My Swinging Monkey

I am so proud of Brooklynn. We enrolled her in Parent & Tot Tumbling class at Midwest Twisters. Today was her last July class so they let us down on the "big kids" floor. Brooklynn had a blast running around and jumping on the huge trampoline. She even swung across the ball pit. She held on to the bar really tight and didn't fall off. I didn't think she would do it since she is one of the younger kids in her class and the bar was about 4 feet above the pit and swung about 10 - 12 feet out. She was so proud and wanted to do it again. She is my little dare devil! Wish I had my camera!!! We signed her up for the August session so she is super excited that she can keep going to her "exercise" class. (That is what she calls it)

My Ed Hardy Fairy Princess

I am taking her to the lighthouse either this week or next for her 2 year photo shoot with Mom. Can't wait!!!

Keeping Busy

I am totally swamped at work - hence no blogging! So here are a few things to make you smile. Brooklynn has been really keeping me on my toes lately. Sunday she took her diaper off and flushed her poopies down the toliet all by herself without me knowing, while I was changing our sheets. She managed to not make a mess too - I was totally floored when I walked to the bathroom to see why she had flushed the toliet! I almost didn't beleive her when she said "Mommy I flushed my poopies" but she must have, the evidence of a skid mark in her diaper proved it! If only she would go on the potty before she started going! She also now strips completley naked when she wakes up from her nap and if I don't hear that she is up in time that means an accident and another load of wash! Enjoy some pictures of her other "fun things".

How she decided to eat a cupcake...

She enjoyed an afternoon bath after her cupcake hair treatment....

What happend when I thought she had my blush brush when I was quickly putting on my mascara....(Had to scrub the black eyeliner off with makeup remover - YIKES!)

And lastly check out my new cupcake project. They are for my Grandma K and Nick's Grandma Harvey's birthday. (Nick's maternal Grandma and my maternal Grandma have the same birthday!)

Happy Birthday Grandmas!!!

Two Years old!

My little angel turned 2 on Monday!!! We were on vacation up at the lakehouse. She had a great day - besides falling through the glass table in the morning. (Thank you Uncle for grabbing her right away!) Lucky enough only a scratch on her ribs and no stiches!!! Her "Cupcake" Birthday is Sunday night. She is very excited and can not wait to have her party!

Looking back: 1 year old

My Fourth of July dessert project....

What happend to mine...

Off to Pick N Save to start over.... Grrrr!!!
From the Hello Cupcake Book.

Top 10 things...

It's been awhile! We have been keeping busy going to the lake and trying to enjoy the outdoors as much as possible. I have been keeping myself busy at the gym! Yes, I am motivated once again. I am already down 8lbs. Only 20 more to go! Ha! I am motivated and keeping busy because I miscarried in mid May. I was only 5 weeks, but it still really stinks getting the positive test and being so excited because it seems like we have been trying FOREVER, and then losing it. I feel like I was given the most wonderful present and it was taken away, almost like some really cruel joke. I know that everything happens for a reason and there are people out there that have endured a lot greater hardships than this. It really makes me even more grateful and feel even more blessed for having my one little perfect girl! Anyway enough with that.....

Her tounge after enjoying a ring pop - Gee I wonder what color it was???

So here are Brooklynn's top things she does or says in no particular order:
1. Her new joke is telling everyone Nick got her earrings at a rummage sale. She laughs and then says, no a jewelry store. Nick actually had a jeweler make her CZ screw back earrings because I told him she can only have earrings that lock. What a great Daddy!
2. She loves, loves the Pixar movie Cars. She can recite the moving lines: "Mater, like ta-mater" and " Go Chuga, Go Chuga"
3. She informs everyone that she is a size 2T.
4. She loves to sing. She is always singing songs that you can actually understand like, Twinkle Twinkle little star, Baa Baa Black Sheep and Old McDonald.
5. She loves to swim and is not afraid of the water. She is learning how to put her face in the water and blow bubbles.
6. When Nick or I are eating she loves to tell us: "Be careful, don't make a mess", "Carefull Mommy, chew good!" and if we make a mess :"Oh no, clean it up!"
7. She can count to 13 and knows the colors: Red, blue, orange, yellow, pink and brown. She still has trouble with green and purple.
8. Her favorite word learned today "Opsie Daisy" She laughs super hard when I or her say it!
9. If she sees M&M's she informs anyone who is around that: " I get M&Ma's when I go big poopie on the potty" she has told many cashiers this, I just laugh!
10. She loves to ride her "bicycle". She is actually able to pedal her tricycle now, but gets frustrated when it doesn't go exactly her way.
