wHaT a GiRL....

This girl is always doing something funny!
I was in loading the dishwasher and cleaning up the kitchen and Bryn
kept coming in and getting some of my cooking utensils.
I could hear her in her room making racket and saying,
"mmm...this corn is good."
all while smacking her lips together. she loves to help me cook
so her doing this is so her. so I had to snap a few pics cause she is
just a funny little girl!

wisking away!

she heard the camera, so she looked up and smiled. :)

Just thought I would show how cute Brynlee's apron is that my mom gave her for Christmas. she is so excited that she has one that she gets to wear to while helping me out in the kitchen. It is way cute. it has her name on it and says princess down around the bottom of it. these pics are on New Years Eve day while I was making things for that evening and she had her on along with myself and I thought I would snap a few to show how cute hers is.

modeling the apron.

I thought this would show more of our cute aprons but oh well. you get the picture!

future Chef Brynlee



the other day we FINALLY took Bryn out of her crib and into a big bed. she was sooo excited about it and just kept saying, "I got new bed., and you put new sheeps on!" no thats not a typo, she really calls them sheeps! ha ha. she has to show everyone that comes to the house her new bed. ya, I know most of you are probably thinking, um...hello, she is almost 3. ya I know, but she is my baby and I just havn't gotten around to doing it. so DEAL with it!! I wanted to keep her room Hawaiian and I found her crib set at pottery barn, but when I was looking clear back in the summer (yes I have had her new bed set since then and just havn't gotten a bed till now)...I know pretty pathetic huh?! anyhoo, when I was looking at pottery barn, the Hawaiian one just wasn't as cute as her crib one, so I didn't get it. my sis was up north one day and came across this at Target and so I had her get it. I think it is darling and Bryn LOVES it because its PINK!! I also bought her bed sheets that go with it that are flip flops that are also darling.I havn't got the headboard yet, I am still looking. I can't decide what to get. so its just the bed for now. It's sad to think I no longer have a BABY but I am sooo enjoying her years right now!! anyways, I am so proud of her for wanting to be a BIG girl and sleeping in a big bed, being almost potty trained (working on the night times) and also for throwing away all her sippy cups! yea!! BIG steps for her!especially that darn sippy. GIVE A LITTLE YEA FOR BRYN!!
