My best friend just today pointed out how I look different in pictures now, not in a bad way, but that I look content and happy with my life. She hit the nail on the head with that one, I am so happy with life right now. Life seems normal with Brooklyn in it, I can't imagine it any other way. I'm so thankful that Jordan and I were able to slip into parenthood so seamlessly. And it's true, seeing Jordan holding Brooklyn or coming over just to give her a kiss just because melts my heart. It's in those moments that I fall even more in love with my family and realize just how blessed I am. As most of you know, I wanted a baby for a while before I actually was pregnant, but I wouldn't trade my journey for anything. I appreciate what I have so much more because of it and I don't take a single moment for granted. God gives each of us a different path for different reasons and I am so thankful for that, it would be too boring if everybody went through life the same.
Jordan is finishing up work in North Carolina and I've almost got our house put together down here. It's been nice to have time with Brooklyn just to myself but I am looking forward to her daddy being back :) I can tell life is only going to start getting better and better as Brooklyn grows. Her little personality is blossoming and she is exploring her world a little more each day. I look forward to taking advantage of the next 8 months with daddy here before we are on our own for 8. Hopefully we'll get to take her to the zoo and aquarium and all the fun things that you can do with little kids :)
Here are a couple more pictures of my little angel :)

Jordan still has three more weeks in North Carolina so Brooklyn and I here trying to get the house all put together. I'm trying to be super motivated to get it all done, but I'm usually really focused for one day and then kind of slack the next :)
We've recently busted out the 3-6 month old clothes for Brooklyn, kind of sad to be putting away a whole bunch of clothes she barely wore! Brooklyn is getting more and more interactive which is so much fun, she laughs, talks, and smiles all the time. Still trying to get a naptime routine established, from what I hear naps can be difficult for most mothers.
Now getting to the subject matter of this post, our near miss: My Birthday was Monday and my dear friend and current neighbor, Elisha, brought over a little cake for me while I was feeding Brooklyn. So I answer the door to a cake lit with candles and my friend singing Happy Birthday, well, caught up in the moment I forget that Maverick would also get excited and he sneaks out the front door. I frantically try to call him back into the house because he isn't wearing his collar. He comes back pretty easily but then he hears little Miss Emma squeal and tries to go back outside. Stupid me, I try to stop him with my legs and while I did manage to keep him inside, I also went tumbling to the ground with my child in my arms!! Thank GOD she didn't hit the ground or even get upset, but my bum and knee are both covered in bruises. It really was quite funny if you really think about it, except for the fact that I had Brooklyn in my arms.
Oh and to top it off that night Miss Brooklyn also decided to poop in her bath!! I tell you, life is never dull once you have children in it :)
I'll get pictures posted soon, but for now I must try and be productive while the little one naps (yes she just went down like a good girl!)
