*Summer, no matter what, flys by!
*We have been dealing with the county and their stipulations for the last couple of months, but it looks like we are just about ready to get started on our house. We picked out a house plan...and our goal is to be done with it all by May. We'll see how that goes. A year seems like a long time away, but I was looking at my blog from a year ago and all of that seems like it just happened.
*We took 1 month pictures of Brynlee the other day...yah, I said one month. Crazy time needs to take it easy for a bit.
*I still miss everyone in Riverdale! (side note: everyone in West Weber is sooo nice though) I also miss our home, but if any of you have driven past it lately, it is lookin' a little different.
*The mosquitos seem extra mean and gnarly this year!!
*Only 3 more weeks until I go back to work. It's only 16-20 hours a week, but it's killing me.
*It's really hard to find time to cook with a baby...any pointers anyone on how all of you amazing momma's do it??
*Dang stretch marks...My lower tummy kinda looks like a trippy/cracked out spider web.
*5 dollar.....5 dollar....5dollar foot loooooooonnnnngs
*Please don't talk politics with Ty...it might cause an annuirism.
*Evian baby commercial (baby's roller skating to Rapper's Delight) cutest ever!!!

She is seriously growing too fast...and it's only been 3 1/2 weeks. We had a check up appointment for her last Thursday and she weighed in at 6.95 lbs and 21.25 inches. I'm sad to see her get big, but at the same time it's fun to see her change.
Lately we have been trying new adventures with her. She now has travelled as far as Magna and Tremonton...and did wonderfully. We also tried the thing of leaving her with Grandma Scott for almost 5 hours while we went to the Cache Valley Cruisin'...she did wonderfully again...my-oh-my was I ready to explode though. She also went to church for the first time last Sunday. Just to sacrament though because Tyler is afraid of the RS ladies all hovering and giving her the swine flu or some other random disease. She did great and looked so dang adorable. We have yet to introduce her to the pool or fireworks however. This will probably be an adventure for next summer.
Brynlee is also a very lucky lady to be surrounded by 2 grandmas 2 grandpas, 3 great-grandpas, and 4 great-grandmas. Here are some pictures of being loved by them…
This last picture is a picture of her with her great-grandpa Robbins (my grandpa). This blankie was made by my Great-Grandma Robbins who I remember well. She made it for my Grandpa Robbins who was wrapped in it. It was then used to wrap my Mom in, then I was wrapped in it, and now we wrap Brynlee in it. It is very tattered and old, so it will be a once in a while kind of thing. But someday Brynlee will hopefully wrap her dear sweet baby in it as well.
Also I wanted to thank my sister for throwing me a baby shower at the end of May. She went to a lot of work and it turned out wonderfully. It was touching to see everyone there. Those who couldn’t come I totally understand too. Tyler and I have had so much love and support from family and friends and we feel so lucky and blessed. Here are a couple of pics from that:
