Bridgette is 6 months!

Seriously! Where does the time go?! I can't believe that our cute little stink is 6 months old!!

Bridgette is such a joy in our lives... as our the other two little whooligans.

Bridgette was barely on the charts at her 6 month appointment, coming in at 19 lbs. 3 oz. and 28.5 inches long!! She's really tall!

She is eating almost any baby food and loves them. She is so smiley and happy all the time.

One of my most favorite things is when she wakes up in the morning. She will just coo and smile in her crib. Content as can be! It warms my heart.

As a family we have been staying super busy. I've been trying to keep up with the three little Miss's, get the new Primary year going and running smoothly, playing women's volleyball, playing bunco, starting a freezer meal group and a craft group, teaching piano lessons, and being especially dedicated to becoming more fit. Eight weeks ago I started a program called Great In 8. It has been so awesome for me to compete... and I am actually on track to win the entire program for the state of Utah!!! (Yes! I am tooting my own horn here! Woot! Woot!) Plus the prize winning money will be nice too! If I was a little bit gutsier I would post my before and after shots, but... well, I'm not.

Brandon has been busy with work, Young Men's, basketball, and studying for the PE. The PE stands for Professional Engineer. It is his big state exam that gives him his state certification and stamp. It is a HUGE/HARD 8 hour Exam! I know he is going to do awesome on it, because he is awesome at anything he sets his mind to accomplishing. Brandon's brother is also getting married in New York this summer, so we are planning a "No Kids" trip to NYC, of course we will be taking baby Bridgette. It's kind of become a tradition that we take our babies on a vacation when they are under a year old. :) Brooklyn went to NYC and Washington D.C. at 9 months, Kenzington went to Alaska at 5 months, and now it's little Bridger's turn. We are so excited for his brother Joseph and our soon to be sister-in-law Jenne!!... Not to mention excited for a fun vacation!

Brooklyn is staying busy with preschool, dance, piano, and playing with friends. We get to register her for Kindergarten on March 11th!! I still can't believe that she is going to be in Kindergarten! She is such a great big sister and is always willing to help out with anything we ask. She has a little job chart that she has become obsessed with and is always asking for more chores! (We will see how long that last for. :)) She's gotten really good at making her bed and cleaning her room. I love to see her so willing to help out around the house.

Kenzington is mommy's little buddy. Her and I get to spend a lot of one-on-one time together while Brooklyn is at school and Bridgette is napping. I am so grateful for this time. She has the funniest, spunkiest little personality. She just turned 3 and thinks she is SO grown up. She loves playing outside and especially riding her bike. Everyday she asks if we can take off the training-wheels... and with her determined attitude I'm sure she'll be ready for that real soon.

As I said before, our little Bridgette is growing up too fast! In fact all of our kids are! I love the joy that these little ones bring into our home.

I couldn't have asked for a better family, a sweeter husband, and more loving girls. Feeling very blessed!
