Brinley is 11 Months....

I need to quit starting posts and saving them for later, because then I think I post them, when in reality they are just sitting there waiting for me to push post :)

11 months....oh my oh my

Brinley continues to blossom daily and on her 11 month birthday she conqured the stairs, not just one but 12. She had been practicing on the single step at Jimmy and Lisa's but was so very proud of herself when she did 12 steps at work. Once she was done she started clapping...she was so proud of herself.

The girl is also jabbering like a fool. It's so fun to hear her talk to herself, her toys, and us!

-mandrin oranges
-bath time (one of these days I'm going to get a video of what she does when she hears the water running)
-playing with all  her new christmas toys
-feeding herself (Brinley is doing great with a fork)

-when things are taken away from her
-bows and headbands (no more cute flowers for this girl)
-baby food

Each month the pictures get harder and harder to take!!

This is the death stare because we put a headband on her....

Brinley's First Stock Show....

Each and every year since Ryan was born his Grandpa has bought the whole family tickets to the National Western Stock Show. I've been lucky enough to go for the last 4 years. We are also lucky enough to get to go to the Professional Bull Riders event early in the week.
We were both really excited to take Brinley. The PBR moved a little too fast for her to really watch, but she did love the horses.

This picture makes me laugh! It had just gotten dark when I took the picture the flash freaked her out  :)

Daddy, Brinley, Great Grandpa and Great Great Aunt Sharon

The following Saturday my parents were in town and we all went to the stock show for the rodeo. The rodeo is always a blast and walking around before the is always fun too!

Wordless Wednesday....Friends

Brinley is blessed with some great friends! She might not know it yet, but trust me these guys plus a few others will be her besties for many many years!

I love getting the pictures with them at each get together and after we get pictures at Brinley's 1st birthday party next month I'll show the babies' progression :)

My Sweet Little Girl....

Santa brought Brinley two babies for Christmas and she loves them! She has recently started to hug "give lovies" to all of her toys especially her babies.
Tonight I was able to catch her in the act...

Brinley Grace is 10 months!!

I can't believe this is a day shy of a month late. I've had it ready since I ran into space issues and forgot to post it :) So here's her 10 month wrap up...and the 11 month one will be up soon!

Ummm....I can hardly believe that in 2 months I will have a 1 year old. Oh my time is flying and I better get my butt in gear planning her princess extravaganza!

Brinley has been so funny lately, baby girl found her sense of humor and man she's funny! I adore her more than words can say!

- Bath (it's still her favorite thing in the world)
-Cruising (she gets anywhere and everywhere!)
-Making Mommy and Daddy laugh
-Christmas lights, trees, snowmen and Santa (she gets so excited when she sees any of those things!)
-"Feeding" herself and I use the term feeding very loosely.

-Having people take things away from her
- Juice...she still doesn't like any kind of juice

Christmas Wrap Up--Part 1

I can't believe Brinley's first Christmas has came and went. The holidays are my favorite time of year and adding Miss Brinley to the mix made them even more special. Watching her light up with excitement at the site of the lights, presents and wrapping paper was enough to make my heart explode.

Since we were planning an early flight to St. Louis on Christmas Day we spoke to Santa and her agreed to come early! Brinley woke up to presents under the tree and in her stocking :)

Chrsitmas Eve is always spent with Ryan's family. This year the Broncos played in the afternoon so we spent all day hanging out with family. After the game everyone was together and we had a wonderful prime rib and lobster tail dinner. Then...came presents :) The kids were so very patient, but were so excited about the presents!

We caught a few pictures before the opening began....
