Brynlie

Brynlie has been growing so fast this summer! She was supposed to be my baby, but obviously no one told her she wasn't allowed to get big. At her last check-up she was in the 75th percentile for height and 50th for weight. I'm not quite sure that is right so we will see when we go back for her 1 year check up. If so, she is the fattest skinny girl I have met! She has got the greatest disposition, almost always happy, with two large dimples that she loves to show off. And then she started teething. In the past 2 1/2 months she's got 6 teeth, with at least one more on its way. Other than the teething she is really happy. We are so lucky to have such a sweetheart in our family.
She just moved up to the big girl car seat so she doesn't have to face the back of the chair anymore. I'm not sure that this made her too happy since she can't see her sisters now.
Kylie and Sadie have started playing dress up with Brynlie. They love having a little sister to play with. Both of them just (s)mother her with love.


Brynlie went on her first all-by-herself swing ride at West Jordan park back in June. She had so much fun! She is turning into quite the little monkey, although Kylie still has her beat. Everyday now I have to put Sadie's desk on top of our kitchen table because if not she climbs on it and either falls off or uses it to climb higher onto Kylie's desk. Then she either falls off of it or screams for help. She has also discovered that she can climb out of the high chair. No accidents, yet...




She had so much fun at the splash pad over the 24th of July. She is so curious about things and loved to watch the spouts until the water would come out. No fear at all. I was determined to Breastfeed Brynlie for a full year, but last month she decided that she was too big for that. I guess the timing was okay since already had a bottom tooth and had just gotten an upper one a couple of weeks earlier. Brynlie LOVES to eat and has never turned anything down, until the night I gave her formula. I've made it through 3 babies and have never bought even one container of formula. The very little that they did drink was courtesy of the free samples given at the Dr. office, hospital, or in the mail. Here's Brynlie trying out the formula...



Normally Brynlie plays in her room for a few minutes and then gets bored and comes out to find me. Last month she was in there for a longer than normal time so I decided to go check on her. This is what I found...

She loves her Aunt Meagan and Uncle Vince. All of my girls do.Brynlie started standing in June...And started walking on Tuesday, the 5th. She isn't very stable and just walks a few steps until someone catches her or until she falls. From the looks of it waving her arms in the air must really help her with her balance. Being Brynlie is hard work!

I can't believe how much she has grown up. She is a doll and I'm glad she's such a good baby for you. Isn't it funny when they don't get the message they're not supposed to grow up. I feel the same way, Chase just turned 3. Just you wait!! I love the sleeping pictures
