Matt and I just feel so blessed to have such a wonderful sweet daughter... She is something special... She has such a sweet spirit about her and has very sensitive feelings (wonder where she got that from...). She does have a mischievous side to her, for example the other morning I had already left for work and Matt was still trying to get last minutes sleep in before starting the day. Brooklyn was already up and she managed to get into Matt's nightstand drawer and grab the KY Jelly. She went into the bathroom and shut the door without Matt knowing. Next thing you know she is crying and yelling Daddy! I am stuck! Matt got out of bed and opened the bathroom door and noticed she had KY jelly all over her hands and couldn't turn the knob because her hands were too slippery. Matt couldn't stop laughing and just thought it was the funniest thing. We sure love her stinkin guts that I just had to post some pictures of her we have taken lately.
She looks like she is posing for Vogue or something!
Sweet and innocent smile....
The other day Brooklyn was playing with my small picture kaleidoscope thing I got when I was about 7 or 8. It has a small picture in it of me with my deaf friends at Raging Waters. You have to look through one end to see the picture. Anyways years ago, our family dog chewed on the opposite end of where the picture was and I have just kept it since I could see the picture if I use a microscope! (hahahaha). Well Brooklyn lately has been telling me we need to fix things and that we can fix all things with a battery. She said we needed to fix my picture and put a battery in it... Lo and behold (look below) this is how it was to be fixed! Wouldn't life be grand if all things could be fixed with a simple battery?
She also said we could fix a blue crayon she broke by putting a blue battery in it... bless her heart...
Brooklyn loves loves loves to read books... She has to sleep with at least one in her bed... the other night I had just stacked all her books back on the shelf after a tornado blew right through it and put her to bed. Next thing I know, I go check on her around 12:30 am to see if she is breathing and still there (something I am paranoid about). Oh she was there and the tornado came back and blew all the books all over her bed! (darn it I didn't take a picture cause I just wasn't thinking). But she looked so cute! The book in the picture is one of her two favorite books, The World's Greatest Mom (me of course!) We always sit in our big family chair and read that or Five Little Monkeys before she goes to bed. Its been a fun routine for us.
Just a cute picture of Brooklyn right after a quick bath. I wrapped a towel around her head and twisted it like some people in Africa do and her head just fell back since it was so heavy! I just laughed so hard and helped her get to her room to stand in front of the door and lay her head against it to take a picture.
