Brooklyn proving once again she can sleep anywhere and her first experience swimming. She absolutely loved it but the pool felt like bath water so who wouldn't? She also has started sitting all on her own which makes it really nice to be able to put her down and not have her fall over.

For Brooklyn's first Easter Cory had to work so we spent the night at my mom's house and Cory met us there in the morning. We had a nice dinner with my family before Cory had to go back to work. Brooklyn had no idea what was going on even though I completely spoiled her. I guess an excuse to buy her things. My mom bought her a swing to have at her house and she loves it so much I am considering getting one for our house.

So I guess I have come to the realization I do my posts in chunks. I wait a long time until I find time and have a lot to upload and then do it all at once. I should try to make it a habit of once a week at least, but there is just to many other things to worry about. Things are well here at the Litchfield Home. We love having Brooklyn in our life and everyday is a new adventure with her. She is always making us laugh even when she is being difficult as shown in the video. She got her first 2 bottom teeth this past month, which was real fun! (Not Really) She rolls everywhere and we think she will soon be crawling, she knows how to inch herself, but gets really frustrated after awhile and gets upset. She loves bath time and we though she was getting better at sleeping through the night until this past week.
This is what I think of that!

So we entered Brooklyn into the Movin 92.5 Baby Idol. I am thinking that the contest is all about who you know and how many of them will actually vote for her. If you would like to help Brooklyn out you can go to www.movin925.com/babyidol to vote for her. She is on page 8 under Brooklyn L. You can vote up to 10 times a day until Friday the for this round.

So I have just spent that last couple hours trying to catch up long overdue blog posts. I cant believe we are in January of 2009. I know its been awhile, I am going to try to be better at updating the blog, its hard to find time between working, housework, sleeping and of course constantly entertaining Brooklyn between her what seems like constant feedings. I cant believe she is 3 1/2 months already. She smiles, laughs, plays and is almost rolling over. If I thought time went fast before, its going 10 times faster now. Here are some of my favorite pictures of her.
We came home from California to never ending snow and ice. Another First for Brooklyn, I had to dress her up and at least get some pictures of her. Its like a Christmas Story all over again. (She's really not that big, her body only fits in like half that outfit.) Brooklyn had her first pictures with Santa this year. She ended up spitting up all over him, I wonder if that is a sign of things to come in the next few years? Christmas was a little different this year. Cory had to work Christmas Eve and Christmas Day which made spending time as a family a little difficult. Christmas morning he made it home in time to open presents with Brooklyn even though she had no clue what was going on. Cory and I only did stockings for each other. Finances were a little rough this year with me being out of work for Brooklyn's birth and Cory missing a month of work after having his appendix taken out the day after Thanksgiving, So Brooklyn was the only one spoiled this year. We spent Christmas morning with Cory's family so he could go play his traditional football and then I went to my family's later when he was leaving to go back to work. Every year I realize how extremely blessed we are. The amount of love that is shown to us not only through out the whole year,but especially at this time of year is incredible to me. I cant even imagine how it came to be that we are so truly fortunate, especially when I compare our lives to those truly in need. The Lord has given us so much and I am so grateful for the answers that come from prayers and blessings. Brooklyn is truly our miracle and the only gift I needed for this Christmas.
