Brooklyn's 1st Birthday

Well I can't believe it, my baby girl turned one yesterday.  It seems like this past year has just flown by.  It goes so much faster the second time around when you have two little kiddos to chase.  I still remember there being so many days with Brady when he was her age when I thought this stay-at-home mom thing is sooo boring.  I've definitely not had time to think that since Brooklyn came along.  She is such a busy little bee.  She isn't walking on her own yet but she is oh so close.  She loves to hold on to Brady's trucks and walk behind them.  She walks really well she just doesn't have the confidence yet to let go.  She is such a happy little girl.  I constantly have people saying to me, "what a happy baby."  It's true until it's not. :)  She can be very happy and very mad.  She really knows how to commit to her emotions.  When she gets mad it is full on diva mode.  She can arch her back and scream and get the reddest little face.  I'm a little concerned that she is so good at throwing tantrums at one.  That can't be good for our future. :)

We go to the doctor tomorrow for her checkup so I don't have any stats on her yet.  She is so much tinier than Brady was at this age so I'm curious to see how much she's grown.  She's very short and petite.  She can say quite a few words when she wants to but overall she's not much of a talker.  Her favorite words that she uses daily are Daddy, Mama, Brady and Hi.  She is such a cutie pie and we love her to pieces.  Here are some pictures from her birthday party this past Saturday.

 Playing with her cousins.
 I love this picture because she has pure joy written all over her face.  She got a truck of her own and she was in heaven.  
 I love this picture of her with my parents.  She is looking at my dad like she is in love.  Precious!
 Brooklyn with her Mimi and Aunt Rachel.
 The theme of her party was pumpkins as you can tell.  

 I totally forgot to take pictures of the table before the party so this is the next day.  Just an idea of how things were decorated.
 This is a wreath my mom made for my front door.
 Me and my little princess.
 Brooklyn had fun putting her hands in the icing but refused to eat it.  When I put a dab of icing in her mouth she got mad and cried.  She can't stand sweet stuff so it didn't surprise me.
 Brady thought it was hilarious. :)
 Wednesday was her actual birthday so we took the kids to the park to play and for a picnic.  Brooklyn loved the swings.
 She didn't so much love the slide.
 Brady did though. :)
