She's officially mobile

I put Brynlee in the family room while i made pancakes for the kids. When I turned around to check on her she was in the kitchen!!! What the heck. She is very excited about her new ability.

She wore herself out!

Brynlee absolutely loves her jumper seat. She will jump and jump and jump as long as I let her. I put her in it today while I was vacumming and when I went to get her out she had fallen asleep. I guess she finally wore herself out.

Little Mother

Autumn is such a little mother. She loves to carry Brynlee all over the house and take care of her. She has been such a great helper.
While I was finishing dinner yesterday, Autumn decided she wanted to push Brynlee around the house in her doll stroller. As you can see, Brynlee loved every second of it.

My first Tag

I got my first tag from Lindsey G awhile ago but I have had a super hard time sitting down to anything on my blog for awhile so I am doing catch up.

Seven weird or interesting facts about me.

1. Ryan and I have owned 13 vehicles since we have been married. 4 jeeps, 1 bronco, 2 cars, 1 motorcycle, 2 trucks, 2 SUV's, and 1 minivan. (yes, I drive a minivan, something I never thought I would do.)

2. I am very shy and I have an intense fear of speaking in front of people and will do anything to get out of it. It makes me sick to even think about it. I wish so bad I was more outgoing.

3. I love anything with coconut. seven layer bars, pina coladas, coconut cinnamon rolls (from Grandma Toblers, yummy), german chocolate cake, coconut creme pie, almond joys, hawaiian haystacks, etc. It is all so good!! If anyone has a good recipe let me know.

4. I ran the marathon in 2006. I've always hated running but I watched Ryan finish one the year before and somehow felt inspired to try one. (The caribbean cruise Ryan promised me if I finished was extra motivation) It was the best feeling crossing that finish line. I was pretty proud of myself. I hope to finish many more.

5. I love Girls Camp. I went seven times growing up and was the Camp Director in my ward for the past three years. I bawled like a baby when they released me. The young women in my ward are amazing.

6. My family went on a mission to Adam-Ondi-Ahman, Missouri for a year and a half when I was four years old. It was an amazing experience for our family. I actually remember a lot about it. We had a tornado rip the roof off our home while we were in the basement. It was terrifying. To this day I get anxiety whenever it is really windy.

7. Ryan and I met in a parking lot in Provo. He and his friends saw me driving, followed me into the parking lot and asked me for my number. They called me twenty minutes later and wanted to hang out. Four months later we were married! We were crazy, but it worked. I love him so much. He is the best husband in the world.

I wish i was more exciting.

Who needs a pacifier

Who needs a pacifier when you have toes!!

She's growing up TOO fast!!

Look how big she's getting!!! I feel like I just had her, and she is already sitting up. She is such a determined little thing and is trying so hard to crawl. Right now she will spin herself in circles on the floor trying to get somewhere. It is fun to watch her grow up, but at the same time I want to keep her little forever.

Yummy Rice Cereal

Brynlee had her first bites of rice cereal. I don't think she knew what to think about it. Not much of it ended up in her tummy.
