Play Date with Kristi & the Kiddos

One of my best friends, Kristi, just had her third, Adam, who is 2 weeks older than Bre.  We try to get them together as much as we can.
Big sister Katy loves her some "Baby Breanna"...Here she is giving her some kisses.  Kristi says she calls some of her dolls "Baby Breanna" too.  Too cute!

Katy has the prettiest curly hair...we're still waiting to see if Breanna's hair is going to have some curl.  One thing we do know is that it already has some wave to it!

Here's Adam, Katy & Bre...some how I didn't get any pictures of Alex.

The two of them are really pretty close in size and length but Bre may have a few more rolls on her little legs than Baby Adam...

Adam is a pro with loud noises with an older brother & sister but Bre doesn't quite know what to think of it all the time.  Every once in a while she gets startled when Katy gets excited singing or talking, her eyes are funny in this picture just crack me up!  Adam actually looks a little surprised too!

Cutie Pie

Bre was dressed up in a new outfit today and just couldn't help but take some pictures while Daddy was home for lunch!  She was really enjoying sitting with him and watching Sports Center while I was finishing my lunch and the occassion just could not go un-photographed!

Big them!!

How can you say no to this face?  We better start practicing now because I think we're going to have some trouble!

Big laugh, she was just having a good time!

This girl loves laying on her changing table.  Not sure exactly why, maybe it's because she can look at her shelves or is closer to her ceiling fan, another major focal point for her but she will just lay and talk to you there!

She just starting to get some hand/eye coordination and when she gets it together whatever she has is headed straight for her mouth.  Her she is giving one of her dolls kisses.

Clean cutie fresh out of the bath.  We try to let her hair dry before putting her down but the back normally sticks up anyway and that's okay.  I do try to brush it down to start off with but it has a mind of it's own!

Here's our sweet girl after waking up, she's normally in a pretty good mood right off the bat!  If you catch her waking up soon enough you can pretty much get some big smiles as soon as she sees you!

3 Months Old...Can't believe it!

Breanna is 3 months old! 

I think I say this in every post but the time goes by so quickly, we're trying to enjoy every moment!  She really seems to have grown in the last month....nothing official but we think she may be 13 pounds now (up from 11 lbs 1 oz at her 2 mo. check-up).  I also think she's got some more length because she has pretty much outgrown her bassinett and has now been sleeping in her crib for the last few nights.

Her personality is really starting to come out...she's a great baby and is always smiling & laughing!  We're still getting up a couple times a night, so not quite there yet on the sleeping through the night part but hopefully we'll be getting there soon!  She has pretty good head/neck control and was doing an especially good job holding it up for me to take the pictures!

Well you may not believe it but I actually narrowed down these pictures, there were probably twice as many so I apologize but I didn't figure there was such a thing as too many pictures!

She kept sticking her tongue out...Bert & I both really liked this picture

This one looks like "deer in the headlights" face to me, such a cute face

I just love all the faces she makes...she really has some different looks.  Love that my camera is fast enough to catch them all!  PaPa, if you're reading this, you'll be glad to know I finally took some pictures of her!  I know you were just kidding me but I can't help but keep the camera out all the time, plus Gram said she was needing some new pictures.  Looking forward to this month and all the changes & growing she'll do!

First Father's Day with BreBre

We had a really good first Father's Day with Bre!  We started off the morning by going to get breakfast for him and then opened a couple cards and a present!
Here's Bre telling him Happy Father's Day.

She was helping him read the card, I just love the look on her face, she was really into it!

DeDe was down for the weekend and the four of us went to lunch together - Texas Roadhouse, very yummy!  Before we went had to get a few pictures... 

Well maybe a few more than a few but I can't help myself with such cute subjects!  It never gets old to see her do one of her big smiles or laugh - I just love them!

Trying for a couple family pics...Buddy was more cooperative than BreBre, he was actually looking at the camera!

Had to get one with Mommy since my hair & make-up were actually done, that's definitely rare these days!

DeDe was a big help this weekend (I still wasn't able to pick up Bre after my surgery until Sunday) so we were very thankful to have her here! DeDe was wearing her flag shirt which just fascinated Breanna.

Here they are playing with her rattle ball.  She is really getting interested in her toys these days.  She's trying to grab them and get them back to her mouth and is successful quite a bit of the time.  She just seems to be able to focus on a toy and really study it.

And one of her favorites right now is looking up at her play gym.  It has two options, one with lights and the other makes the birds fly around in a circle (wish it would do both) but it doesn't seem to bother her.  She just loves to look up at the lights and laughs and coos.  It's been nice for when we're eating because for a while seem like we were having to eat in shifts and this way she's entertained!

I think I surprised her with this shot, her eyes got so big!  She's 13 weeks today and will officially be 3 months tomorrow!  Amazing how fast it's going by but even more amazing how much we love her!
