I just got a nice, new camera from Dereck for Christmas so I figured I would try it out and take a few pictures of the kids with it. The pictures I took came out pretty cute but I think I am far from being anything close to professional.

It is amazing how fast kids grow up! It seems like just yesterday that we were bringing her home from the hospital. Brooke Lynn has gone from a cute little newborn that I couldn't keep my eyes off of to a walking, babbling hellion that I can't seem to keep up with. I can't wait to see what is to come in the next year for her and for many years to come.....

We are renting the house while we are waiting for everything to finish going through and close. And just to top everything off, we got a great deal on the house and it is in a great neighborhood. We still have a lot of work to get done in the back yard (I used to call it my little "weed patch" but Dereck chopped down the weeds) but it will all be worth it. So to make a long story short.....we love our new house and we wouldn't trade it for anything different.

Brooke is now 7 months old! When I took her in for her 6 month well child check she was 16 lbs. 7 oz. and 26.5" long. Apparently, she also has a huge head and the doctor was concerned that her head circumference had increased quite a bit since her last appointment. So we now have to take her back in to the clinic in a couple of months to have her head circumference rechecked. Anyways.....I am not too concerned about any problems with her head as she is still reaching her milestones way ahead of time. Brooke is now crawling all over the place and is trying to eat everything in sight. She has also started attempting to pull herself up to a stand and although she has not accomplished that yet, she can hold onto things and stay standing. Brooke's hair was starting to get too long so I finally succumbed to temptation and had a friend trim up her hair for me about a week ago (Thanks Randee!). Although it was a little hard for me to part with her hair, she looks much better with it cut and she is liking the fact that it is out of her eyes.
Haylee is becoming quite the little smarty pants and she amazes me everyday with little things that she has picked up from other places and other people. She even told my mom this last weekend that my mom was too old to come and play tag with her (haha). Eric is playing tennis for the high school this year and has gotten Haylee hooked on the idea of tennis. My mom even got Haylee her own tennis racket this last weekend. She actually is not too bad so who knows maybe she will be the next Venus or Serena Williams. Spring is finally here and it is starting to warm up which means the kids and I can spend more time outside. Here is a few pictures of the kids from the last week or so.....
