Weekend in St. Louis

Last weekend, Brooke and I went to St. Louis for Aunt Jen's baby shower. In between 2 very long drives, we had a fun weekend and enjoyed a very nice baby shower. Brooke even got some presents of her own!

Giving Aunt Jen the present Brooke picked out (and then she took it back!)

One of the presents Brooke got: princess dress up things..including earrings! She had to add my shoes to complete the outfit!

Some Random Pics...

These pictures are a few weeks old, but I had so many others with wedding pictures and Halloween, I figured I'd save them for when I was in need for some new blog updates...

Helping daddy rake leaves
(this was when it was much cooler out!) and this is not even a fraction of the leaves that were in the yard!

Practicing...this was after she had given the baby a bottle, is currently rocking her, and then proceeded to put her to sleep. She's going to be a great big sister!

Brooke LOVED to be swaddled when she was a baby. I think we swaddled her until she was 6 or 8 months (way longer than most people do). Her blanket was loosely covering her when she went to bed and this is how we found her when we checked on her! We often find her like this and aren't quite sure how she gets her self so tightly wrapped up!

Happy Halloween!

Flower girl dresses make great Princess Halloween costumes! Brooke was thrilled to get to wear her dress again. She was not so thrilled with carving the pumpkin. She didn't want to get her hands dirty! But, she did LOVE the pumpkin seeds that I roasted! She enjoyed trick-or-treating too, although we never actually got her to say "trick-or-treat." She did say thank you though! After EVERY house we went to, she would say, "I got candy!" and then later it changed to: "I have LOTS of candy!" She was pretty excited with the candy!
