Where to begin...

Wow! It really has been entirely too long since I last posted. To say that having a child is life altering is the understatement of the century!! Every opportunity I try to take to write, something steals my attention... But how on earth could anyone resist this face... 

Brynlee is 4 months old and has developed quite the little personality! I seriously can't get enough of her and thank the good Lord every chance I get for our precious little girl. 

We took her in for her 4 month appointment last week and she is growing like a weed!!! She is 15lb 11oz (90th percentile) and 26 inches long (97th percentile and 3 inches from her 2 month appointment). Crazy! 

As I said, she has developed quite the personality and to say she is vocal is putting it mildly. The girl jabbers none stop. Whether she's "singing", "screeching" or giggling at us or her puppies she is ALWAYS making noise! Some mah not think it's as cute as I do but oh well... My favorite is when she sings along at church! Hilarious!! 

We were given the go ahead to start her on solids but I just don't think she's ready. She isn't very interested, in fact she has cried 3 of the 4 times we have tried to feed her cereal. I think we will stick to breastmilk for a few days and give the cereal a try again next week. 

Brynlee spends most of her week days with Daddy. She LOVES her Daddy so much. Cozart loves to take her on errands, where he is inevitably stopped by every other lady they see. I can't blame them, a hot bald man with a sweet baby girl... Who could resist?? Certainly not me! ;) He loves every minute of it too, as you can imagine. I am reminded again and again of what an amazing man I have been blessed with as a husband and father to our little girl! God is good!!! 

When Cozart is working, Brynlee gets to spend her day with her nanny, Christine. She is such a sweet person and so good with Brynlee. We are so lucky to have her! It definitely makes it easier on this working Mom to leave her girl every day, knowing she's in good hands!! 

We are quickly approaching wedding festivities for my sister. Brynlee and I will be traveling home to Minnesota in April for Katey's shower and bachelorette party. I am SOOOOOO nervous to fly with her by myself but can't wait to bring her home for the first time to meet all my aunts, grandma(s) and friends from home. It will also be an emotional trip for me, as it will be the first time I will have ever been home and not see my Grandma Gen who passed away on Brynlee's birthday. A day doesn't pass that I don't think of her for one reason or another. And for that I am thankful for I know she is always with me. :) 

That's all for now... 

1 month, 2 months, 3 months, 4 months
