Dress Up!

Aunt Arianne came to visit this weekend and taught Brooke the fun of playing dress up! After playing in her flower girl dress for while we found another princess dress to try on....she has already put the whole outfit on twice and asked to a third time!

Meeting Baby Drew

We had a wonderful visit in St. Louis meeting Brooke's new cousin Drew. Brooke wasn't too sure what to think of him but she warmed up the more time she spent with him. This was about as close we could get them together!
Here is a slideshow of some more pictures of our visit. Drew is a cutie and we were so glad to get to spend some time with him. We can't wait to watch him grow!

The Magic House

Grandma and Grandpa took Brooke to the Magic House. As you can see, they all had fun!!!

Fun in St. Louis

Brooke had a great time playing at Grandma and Grandpas, meeting baby Drew and having fun in St. Louis.

Using her flashlight as a microphone!

We also got to spend some time with some friends. I got to catch up with my good friend, Stacey and Brooke got to play with her son Gabriel. We also got together with some of my friends from vet school and all of our children!

Welcome Drew!

We are so excited to welcome Brooke's new baby cousin, Drew!

Brooke has understood for some time that there is a baby in Aunt Jen's belly and more recently in mine but we weren't sure she REALLY understood what this meant. This weekend we showed her pictures of Drew with Jen and Dave and it seemed like she got it. A little later on, we had this conversation:
Brooke: "How come my other baby isn't out?"
Me: Your other baby? [I think its cute she calls them "her" babies!]
Brooke: (points to my stomach)
Me: This baby is still growing, its not ready to come out yet.
Brooke: But my baby cousin is out!

So, I think she gets it, now! We can't wait to see how she acts when she gets to meet him in person (and of course we can't wait to meet him too!)

She also saw a picture of Grandma Barb and Grandpa Stuart with Drew and acted surprised they were there. When I explained that they were his grandparents too she looked a little worried/upset. You mean I have to share my grandparents? I guess she'll figure this one out too!

Pig Tails!!!!!!

Brooke has enough hair for pig tails!!!!!! (sort of) She has been talking about all of her friends at daycare who have ponytails in their hair so I told her we could try. As I was putting them in she said, "I have ponytails, because I am a girl!" She was very proud of them and we think she looks adorable!

Happy New Year (and Christmas #2)

Since we never made it to Stanberry over Christmas, Grandma and Grandpa Nickell came to visit on New Years Day. We celebrated a late Christmas and Brooke had a great time playing with her grandparents.
