Since We Went Away

Alot has happened in the the last few week for our family. First off, we made it to Nebraska! That's right we are selling alarms again this summer so we will be living in good old Nebraska for the next 4 months. It's been great so far. All the people are so friendly and sales are going great for Brig (knock on wood).

Now we are part of the Cornhusker Nation. EVERYONE here is a fan so here's our little tribute... Go Huskers!

This is our new place for the summer. Isn't it cute?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRIGHAM! Yep, Brig just turned 25 this week!! We had a fun little party over the weekend complete with decorations and DQ icecream cake. YUM! I think 25 is kind of a big deal and I wanted to give Brig something special for the occasion so with A TON of help from my Grandma Call and Aunt Brenda I made him this quilt of all his t-shirts from high school football. I'm so happy with how it turned out. He loves it! And best of all it was a complete surprise--so there Brig, I can be sneaky. Thank you Grandma and Brenda for all your help!

Brighty loves the quilt too. Now she has something to read while she's doing tummy time.

Speaking of Brightyn...
She is 6 MONTHS now! We are just starting to try out some solid food-if you call rice cereal solid. She didn't like it much at first but she has warmed up to it a bit the last couple times.

I tried dipping her binky in it to get her to eat it. We make a big mess every time she eats, as you can see.

Oh and one of her top teeth just poked through. Poor kid. It was a rough one.

Photo Shoot

So... Brig was out of town and I got bored and we did a little photo shoot. I wish I had one of those amazing cameras, but even so I think these ones turned out pretty cute. I wanted to keep going and do some in her tutu but she was ready for a nap. Oh well, next time.

By the way... SHE HAS TEETH! How did that happen?!

This one's for you Tonts! Brigham was getting her to laugh really good but I only caught the end of it with the camera.

4 Months and Counting

WOW! I just can't believe it! Brightyn is getting bigger everday. It's strange how she just got here four months ago, but it feels like she has been with us forever. Since she's been here she has become my life and I wouldn't have it any other way! I love this little sweetie so much! And being a mommy rocks! That said she is pretty much all I have to blog about. And I take pictures of her practically every day so here are some highlights from the past few months.

All bundled up for a little stroll around the neighborhood.

Brightyn's favorite place to sleep.

Brighty's first Christmas was so fun! Having her there just puts all the magic back into the holiday. I can't wait til next year when she can actually open her presents.

Hanging out with her aunts and uncles in Thatcher.

All dressed up for Haylee's wedding reception.

Brighty loves to hang out in the baby carrier and I love to have two hands again. So we get alot done around the house when she is in it. But more than that we like to go on walks, she usually conks out by the end.

Still lovin' tummy time everyday!

Can you say "Chunky"? She's getting so big!

I finally caught that heart melting smile on camera. Ahhh!

Uh oh, she loves watching TV, especially sports with her daddy.

She's just starting to get the hang of her bumbo.

Brightyn's Blessing

Brightyn's was blessed on November 29th (Thanksgiving Weekend) and I'm finally posting the pictures, ha. It was a really special day for us. We had lots of family in town because of the holiday and our bishop asked us to speak, lucky us. Needless to say, I cried alot (we'll blame it on the postpartum emotions). Here's some pictures I took of our little angel.

These were her special accessories. My Grandma Call made the booties. They are the same ones that me and all my siblings wore for our blessings. And I made the bracelet this summer.

Thanks to everyone who came. Here are some group pictures we snapped afterward but we didn't get everyone in them because some people already left.
