Summer Days

We've just been packing our days full of fun lately.  I only have one month left of freedom, so I'm going to make the most of it.  Here are just a few fun events that we've had:

On Brooklynn's blessing day, she wasn't feeling very smiley in her pretty dress.  I wanted to have another photo session of her in her dress to get some smiley pictures, so I finally did it last week.  She did great and I got some very cute pictures.
I posted this one because last week she was really into sucking her bottom lip.  She's kind of already over it, but at least I have it documented.  It was funny because she would suck her lip so hard she looked like an old toothless lady.

This is a classic Brooklynn smile

She still loves her hands

I think she was so happy to have so much fabric to grab and chew.

This smile is ultimate happiness--I love this little girl!

Last Friday night I decided to braid Bailey's hair so she would have super curly hair the next day. She sat remarkably still as I did the three french braids--thanks to the Little Einstiens show. She was so excited to see her hair curly in the morning. We woke up the next morning to see if the plan had worked. It did! I undid the braids and let it go free. You could tell by the way she walked around that she felt beautiful; it was really cute. She wanted to look at her curly hair in the mirror and she said, "Look! I have curly hair like Hailey!"

Here's Bailey with her braids in what I call the J Lo stage.  (There's some old movie with Jennifer Lopez in it where she had her hair in three braids like this.)
Here's her curly hair in all its glory!  It turned out so big I loved it.
Here's her fro from the front.  Look at her pose you can tel she loves it.

The finished product complete with sparkly headband.

Last Saturday Adam and Teryn were married!  It was a really fun wedding.  They're both so happy!  And we're happy to have Teryn a part of the family.  Here are some pictures from their big day:

The ceremony was outside at a golf course in Fallbrook.  It was a beautiful day for a wedding.

Here's Brian, of course, cheesing it up for the camera.

Here's their first dance.  Teryn looked so beautiful in her dress.

I never get pictures of both of us, but since we were kid free I had time to remember.

The past month Aunt Nancy and Uncle Patrick have been in town for the wedding.  They live in Michigan so we don't get to see them that often.  It was fun to be able to hang out with them and for them to be able to see the girls.

Patrick was kind of like the baby whisperer with Brooklynn.

Bailey and Nance in coordinating outfits and sippy.

Brian's dad and sister Lauren came in town for the wedding too.  It was their first time meeting Brooklynn.

Kaci, this post is AWESOME!

First, i am so glad I remembered to tell Bailey how much I loved her "Curly" hair on Sunday- seeing how happy and proud she was of it is great!

Second, that picture of Brian being cheesy is so classic! love it!

Finally, I am GLAD that you guys had a kid-free night and got a picture of both of you at once!

Bailey did look so beautiful with her curly hair! I loved it. Lily always wants to flatten hers when it gets kinky with braids - so funny. Brooklyn is so adorable. I'm so glad you were able to make it Saturday - it was fun! I'll send you some pictures soon :)
