Brynnlee has turned into Houdini at night. Jeff and I always swaddle her pretty tight for the night since our house gets a little cold. She has always been able to kick out of my swaddling but Jeff gets her really tight. Tonight though, she finally accomplished the task of breaking free from her dad's best attempts at swaddling, not even once but multiple times. Here is what she looks like when we put her to bed.

And her is what we have been waking up to.
I guess I should have known though. In the womb she was always kicking as soon as I wore something tight around my waist. Brynnlee was also very busy in the night because not only did she manage to break free from her blanket but she also broke free from her hand covers. We put her to bed looking like this:
And we woke up to this:
What an efficient little pill she has become. Good thing she is so cute.
I also wanted to show my latest purchase at Walmart. It's much too big for her now, but will be perfect for next year's football season.

1 month old!!!

I can't believe that Brynnlee is already a month old. It really does seem like we were just in the hospital getting ready to have her and here she is already growing up so fast. We have had so many fun experiences already with her including smiles, laughs, crying (for good and sad reasons-mostly good from Jeff and I), peeing on family, cuddling with mommy, throwing up on mommy, blowouts in outfits, staring at the mobile for long periods of time, late night feedings, playing with daddy, no sleep, reading books with mom, walks, spending time with grandparents and aunts and uncles, and most recently peeing and pooping all over mom and dad's bed at 4:00 in the morning!!! See I wouldn't ever change any of the last month for any thing in the world. Brynnlee is the greatest blessing in our lives. We wanted to have some fun pictures of her for her 1 month birthday so on Saturday we found this cute coat that Megan and John let us borrow and dressed her up in it. She fell asleep right away (if we only knew that before all those late night cryings). We then took way too many pictures of her in it because she is just way too cute. She is still a little small for it, but it will fit great all winter long. I can't wait to put her in it again, my little Brynnlee bear!!!!

Grandpa's 89th Birthday

Last week was Jeff's Grandpa Bonner's 89th birthday. We went over and had a great time eating cake and ice cream and seeing Jeff's family. Here are some pictures of the Great-grandkids with Grandpa.
