Month 7...(posted very late..next week is month 8)

Dearest Brynn,

This month has been a blast! This month was all things new.  Our little girl is growing up and so fast.  I can't believe it.  This month has been one for the records.  You learned how to stand up in your crib, you sprouted your first tooth Monday November 4th, you learned how to stand up in your crib, you learned to go from laying to sitting and you finally put all that rocking on all fours to use and started crawling November 22nd.  You had your first playdates and your first baby music class.

Let's talk about Crawling..I just can't believe it!  I knew it was coming...you have been teasing me on all fours for over a month now.  But one morning you just decided "I think I want some dog food for breakfast", and just in a blink of an eye you went from your play mat to Lilly's dog food bowl across the room.  I did catch you in time before you ate it in case you are wondering.

You have a fake cough that you love to do on the daily.  You love to hear "oh baby you have a bad cough!"  Makes you laugh over and over and you will just keep doing it so we do it back.  You also love to blow raspberries and laugh in a loud scream.  You just think you are so darn funny.  You are constantly doing things and then looking at us like.."hey you see me!"

You are getting longer and leaner.  Growing like a weed.  You still have those chubby cheeks though.  Chubby cheekers as daddy calls you.  Sometimes I feel like I can't kiss them enough.  I think I kiss them probably 234985948579 times a day.  You don't seem to mind.  You even kiss back these days.  Only when you want to though.  That's another thing about you missy.  You are strong willed.  You do what you want when you want.  And want what you want when you want it.  I guess one day I might have to start doing something about this...;)  But right now...right now..it's just too cute!

You are our life Brynn.  We love you more than any words can ever ever express.  You fill our whole entire hearts. Your joy and happiness is what makes my heart beat.  Lately I find myself rocking you to sleep and just holding you a little more tightly...and a little bit longer before I lay you down.  I just love you so much and I can't help but think of the fact that these things won't last forever.  You, my dear, are the best and biggest blessing.  I am forever thankful that God chose me to be your mother.  How on Earth did I get so blessed?

Love you to the moon and back.
xoxo Mommy & Daddy.
