Cowabunga Baby!

Today on my way home from work I was listening to 107.9 The Mix. They asked for the first caller that could name the new movie with Cameron Diaz and Tom Cruise. The caller would win tickets to Cowabunga Bay. So thinking I should try my luck, cause I knew the answer was Knight and Day, I dialed the number. Thinking that it would be busy because I try to win things on the radio all the time and never get through, but to my surprise it was ringing. After a few rings I thought I must have got through but was not fast enough. Just when I was about to give up hope I hear "Hi, what's your name?" I knew that this was it I had won. So since I knew the answer Kellan and I get to go to Cowabunga Bay to see how it is. I am so excited. I am not sure if I got the 4 hour pass or the all day pass, I will pick it up tomorrow and let you know! For those who do not know what Cowabunga bay is here is a picture.....

House Work

Yesterday I had the opportunity to go up and spend some quality time with my Grandma Grow. She watched Brooklyn while I helped her do some stuff around the house. She was nice enough to provide a yummy lunch for us. My question is though...why is it more fun to go and clean at some other persons house than your own? If that is the case then there should be an organization that you can join that you swap houses and clean. Does anyone else feel this way or is it just me?!?

2 month check up

Last Tuesday I took Brooklyn in for her 2 month check up and shots. Here are her stats:

Weight: 12.1 lbs 85th Percentile
Height: 23 1/4 in. 75th Percentile
Her head is perfectly round with no flat spots! (I can't remember what the size and percentage was)

The doctor said that she has really good muscle control and looks perfectly healthy. She was talking the whole time and then the dreaded nurse came in and everything changed. It is so sad to see them going from completely happy to bawling in less than a second. The shots are so mean. I can see why little kids are afraid of going to the doctor. The shots and the tongue depressor to look down the throat. I think it makes everyone gag when they do that.

Brooklyn is such a joy. She really is a happy baby. I could not have asked for anything better. I love that I get to stay home more and spend that time with her.

Things Brooklyn is doing at 2 months:
Smiles when sees mom and dad
laughs in her sleep (it is soo cute)
follows an object with her eyes
great muscle control in her neck and head
sleeping though the night

We love you very much Baby B! You are such a special light in our lives.
Love Mom and Dad

Baby B's first trip and Kellan's 26th birthday

This past weekend Brooklyn and I took a trip down to St.George and Mesquite with my parents. It was nice to get away for a few days. The weather was perfect not too hot or too cold. Here are a few pics from the travels.
She slept just about the whole way down to my Uncles house in Virgin

This baby loves her Grandpa Olney

She did not care for the pool just yet, probably because the water was freezing!

She loved driving in the car and was happy just about the whole time!

At dinner with Grandma and Grandpa Olney

Time for a snooze with her two favorite things, her bink and her glow worm!

Happy to be heading home!

We got home in time to celebrate daddy's 26th birthday! We went to dinner at Kellan's parents on Sunday and then on his actual birthday Kellan had to work during the day. That night we just spent as a family. I made dinner and then we went to the drive in and saw Shrek 4. For Kellan's birthday he got the Mash dvd box set. He has been wanting this for a long time so I pulled the money together from a few people and got it for him! I ordered it online and did it too late so he has to wait a few more days to actually get it. Next year I will have to plan better! Happy Birthday to the man I love!

Brooklyn's Blessing

Yesterday we had the opportunity to bless Brooklyn. I am so grateful to have a worthy priesthood holder in our house. Kellan is such a good patriarch and guides our little family very well. The blessing that he gave her was so Beautiful. She was peaceful and serene during the whole thing. My mom was smart and saved the dress that I was blessed in as a baby. So I was able to share that special thing with Brooklyn. Hopefully she will look back and be grateful for that. I am so grateful for being blessed with such a wonderful family. My parents helped out so much with all the planning for the blessing especially my mom. I don't know what I would do without her. She is such a planner and it can be a little overwhelming at times but she makes sure that all the little details are taken care of that I would have missed had she not been that planner. I am so glad that everything went smoothly and also that it is over. I did not realize all that went into planning for it and it is just nice to be done. There were so many people that came out to support us and I am thankful for each and every one of them! Like I have said in posts past I am horrible about pictures so the only ones I got were of the baby. Kellan's aunt did get a few of Kellan and I with the baby so hopefully I can snag copies from her for our records! Thanks again to all those who made Brooklyn's blessing such a spiritual day! She may not remember it but I always will!

Memorial day weekend and babies first camping trip

This weekend we had the opportunity to go camping with my family for Memorial Day. It was tons of fun and Brooklyn did amazingly well. We got to the West Desert on Friday night. My parents had been there all week so all we had to do was bring in our bags. We stayed in the camper with my parents. It was so nice not staying in a tent. That would have made for a long weekend. We brought the pack and play for the baby to sleep in and the first night I tried to put her in there while Kellan and I took the most uncomfortable hide away ever. By the next morning Kellan was on the floor sleeping on the couch cushions and I was asleep on the bed sideways with the baby next to me. I don' t know if it was just how much the trailer moved or a new environment but the baby would not sleep in the pack and play which is what she sleeps in at home. I think it was a mixture of both. The next night I ended up sleeping in the recliner with the baby on my chest and Kellan pulled off the matress to the hide away and slept on that. Much better. Needless to say we worked out the kinks in sleeping. Saturday the weather was sunny but super windy and the wind was cold. Sunday was much better with sunny and not a cloud in the sky with a light breeze to cool you in the warmth of the sun. Monday was perfect not to hot or cold...of course that is how it always is on the last day right?!? Anywho here are a few pics from the weekend. I am still not as good as I should be so all the pics are of the baby in the camper but she loved being outside.
