Yes child number 2 has arrived, and it has been a busy month so I am just now posting about it on my blog... well I'm not sure I could even call this much of a blog, I don't blog much at all, so if you like see whats going on with our family look at Matt and my facebook pages, we update those more than this. Oaklee Tegan McBride came into our lives December 28th 2011, and she was 8.2 pounds and 19 inches. She came out with tons of dark hair and has for the most part kept it all over the last 2 months. I took her to her two month appointment this past week and she was just under 12 pounds... yes she is a big baby, very healthy. I was at my parents house a few weeks ago and looked at my baby book. And realized that Oaklee looks just like my baby pictures. Brynlee and I were looking at my baby book together and whenever Bryn saw a picture of me as a baby she would point and say Oaklee? And I would tell her it was me, but we look alike as babies, so who knows maybe Bryn will look like Matt and Oaklee will look like me. We blessed her today in church, it is always a special day when your baby is blessed, it was a wonderful day. So good to have family and friends come support us, thank you! Not much else going on, just having fun being a family of 4 and enjoying life! I do have tons more pictures on facebook so check them out!

New Things!

I got pictures of Brynlee taken today, and I just had to post some! She did so good! She did keep running off though, I couldn't keep her still!!!
She is such a blessing to me though, I absolutely love her to death, I can't believe how smart she is. She can now say mom and dad and Hi and bost, and a few other things! My favorite is when Matt goes downstairs to watch TV or something and she doesn't follow him, she just sits at the top of the stairs and yells down to him "Daddd! DADDD!!! Daddd! as matt yells back, its such a cute thing, I love it! She understands things now, when I say lets go take a bath, she goes straight to the tub and starts pulling at her jammies to get them off. Or when I say lets go get a cracker she knows exactly what cupboard they are in. And Brynlee is Bostons new favorite friend, she loves giving him treats and I swear 5 times a day she will walk over to the cupboard with his treats in it and start pulling at it, that means she wants to give him another one. Oh and by the way, dog food must not taste that aweful because at least 2 times a day I catch her putting her hands in his dog food, and almost everytime she has a peice in her month! YUCK!
Our Sweetheart is growing up fast! Look how darling these pictures are!

I'll get straight to the point and post some pictures, cause thats all people want to see anyways. Oh but there is one other thing, I am posting a video of Brynlee dancing to Sugarland, "stuck like glue" She loves that song. :)

Brynlee is 1!

Brynlee turned 1 on November 12th! I can't believe its been a whole year! She is getting so big and has the cutest personality, I just love her. So along with milestones comes Doctors appointments. We went to the doctors office yesterday for her 1 year appointment. She is a light weight, weighing in at 16lbs 14oz. She was 16lbs 4oz at 9 months, so needless to say she didn't gain much weight. But she grew in length a couple inches. She is below the 2% in weight and in the 60% for length. So the doctor says she is tall and skinny, and thats not too bad, he says he isn't worried to much about her weight right now, but to just keep trying high calorie foods. When I find something she likes I overload her on it! I just love watching her little mind work, she is so curious about things, and is so bound and determined to figure things out for herself. Examples of why I can't get enough of her... -Taking the lid off a water bottle and working at putting it back on...for a baby with those small hands to get it on just right takes time. -Taking my wallet out of my purse and pulling every thing out of it. -I take her to work with me and she is on this kick where she goes and opens all the paper drawers to the printer, so when we want to print we can't cause they are all open. We decided we would tape the drawers closed so she can't open them... She sat there for minutes apon minutes working at pulling the tape off. Her little fingers just picking at the tape. -Our little sweetheart has never taken a bottle, a binkie, she doesn't like cows milk, she doesn't like juice... the list goes on. She only likes the veggie baby foods, not fruit ones, and she will only drink water out of her sippy cup. Which is great because water doesn't cost money.. -She loves to look at pictures on my camera with me. She giggles at home videos of herself. -She has been walking for a month now, so now she tries running everywhere. -She has the prettiest blue eyes I have ever seen. -She doesn't sleep through the night. She wakes up at 1:30am and 3:30am and then wakes up for the morning at 6:30am and don't try and make her go back to sleep, it makes her mad. But once I get out of bed with her she is so much fun to play with in the morning. That is her happiest time of the day! -She has the best smile in the world. (espcially now that her 2 bottom teeth are in) -She has a temper just like her dad -She likes to dance, and she has moves like her mom... :) Brynlee is such a sweetheart I am so happy she is part of our family! Here are some recent pictures of our 1 year old little angel!

Pumpkin Patch

We took Brynlee to her first Pumpkin Patch yesterday. She is still to young to really enjoy it, we mostly just took pictures and walked around with her. But I think in the years to come she will really love the tradition of going to pick our pumpkins for the fall.

This is Brynlee riding the horse at Matts parents house. I know its not really funny because she gets hurt in it... but at the same time it was kinda funny! I don't know maybe she will be a little cowgirl...she will have to toughen up if thats the case!
