I feel like I have not been on here to post in FOREVER!!!! I also feel like I have not taken many family shots these days. Not good, gotta get back on that! I am also very sad because my computer that I have been using FOREVER that has all of my pictures on it has a virus I can not get off of it. As I was trying to transfer all of my pictures onto our external hard drive before it crashed I "think" I may have lost all of my pictures from September. So yeah, sad for all the posts I did not do from September that I was being lazy and waiting on. I had some CUTE pictures from September too. I hope that when somebody figures out how to fix my computer that I can find those September shots. I know I did not push any delete button so they should be somewhere right? Anyway. Here are a few of the updated shots of our crazy little Brookers!
About a month ago we had Brooke's 15 month appointment. I was not looking forward to this appointment because #1 she was getting more shots and those just melt my heart, but #2 At Brooke's 12 month appointment she was pretty low on the charts for her weight and as I was seeing she had not gained much weight since then. She was also going through a VERY picky stage with food. She was hardly eating ANYTHING that was solid and it was very much stressing me out and making me feel like I was failing as a mother. NOT FUN! She ended up being 19lbs. 4oz. 4% and 31 1/4inches 48%! Yep she is small! I promise I feed her! She is a very picky kiddo. I have talked to 2 different Doctors about her weight and eating habits. I even lost it and was bawling at the second Doctors appointment because I was so worried about her. The doctor was super sweet, sat down with me, watched her run around in her diaper and concluded that she is a very smart, active, PICKY CHILD! She is doing much better these days with her eating. She does have 4 I teeth that still need to come in and I think that has something to do with it, I have also modified our eating arrangements and her fluid intake. It is getting better. She is also now on 3 Pediasure's a day to help her gain weight and get the nutrition she needs. Anyway, she is healthy and strong and smart and SMALL! But we love her BIG time!
On to more pictures! Enjoy!
Daddy is SO proud of his little girl! So am I! I think this comes more from Kipper's genes tho :)
This one needs no explanation....
She LOVES glasses but happens to break them easily too :(
Brooke LOVES this Blanket!!!! It is her favorite blanket but will take her Pink one if the Purple is in the washer. She has started sucking on the corners to calm and soothe herself now that she no longer has a binki. She calls them her "Giki"'s SO CUTE!!!! SO here is her with her beloved Giki!
Brooke and her Echo! I think this is such a cute picture!
Grammy was in town for the weekend a few weeks ago. I had a photo shoot in the morning and my mom was to watch Brooke for me. I needed to test my lighting so I had them pose for me and this was my FAVORITE lighting shot I go! LOVE IT!
Brooke is quite the active little one! She loves to jump and bounce and fly! She jumps off our couch onto her little homemade love sack we make with all our pillows. SO funny!
I suppose she has learned what keys are for :) Just learning from watching, I did not teach this :)
Another cute one! Proud of this!
2 things Brooke is TOTALLY in love with in 1 thing! Elmo who she calls "Yaya" and Balloons! She adores both so when we found this Balloon at the dollar store she would literally NOT let it go! She ate her entire dinner with her balloon in her other hand. SO CUTE!
Brooke also LOVES to read books! So we let her read in the car and she LOVES IT! This day Brooke had a ton of fun playing with Grandma Robinson and crashed in the car almost immediately!
Brooke has been trying to do rolls, I have been helping her complete them from this point. She cracks me up. We will be getting her in a tumbling class soon hopefully!
This picture says it all!!! I LOVE how much Kipper LOVES this little girl!
And there you have it for now! I will be better at these posts! I promise :) Well, I hope so :)
The saddest part of taking the time to Blog lately is that I feel like nobody reads my blog anymore. I hardly get any comments anymore and I don't know if I am just waisting my time by putting these things up. I do do it for myself and my journal keeping so that is what is keeping me going. I just pray I will take the time at some point to put all of these posts into a book.
Hope you all have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

WE LOVE OCTOBER!!!!
This month has been JAM PACKED with Halloween Fun! We have had a FABULOUS month I must say! We enjoy the Halloween weather, the decorations, movies, haunted houses, carving pumpkins, celebrations, dressing up, CANDY, well pretty much EVERYTHING about HALLOWEEN!!!!
Lets Begin with the Beginning of October :)
The Halloween celebration began with the celebration of Laurie's Birthday on October 11th! Grandma Robinson planned some super fun games for us all to play, most of them with a Halloween theme. (I will soon have a post on JUST Minute to Win It games that we have played, so those pics will come later!)
Then on October 19th Grandma Robinson threw a SUPER FUN Little Goblin Party for her Grand kids! What a wonderful Grandma she is, she even got all dressed up for the party! She had games, a little photo shoot, a pinata, an orange themed lunch, sugar cookie decorating, and more! Brooke had a great time! I think the cookies were her favorite :)
Brooke and Grandma Robinson
This is about how the photo shoot went :)
Laurie, Hailee, Jake, Me, and Brooke
Grandma and her girls
Fun, fun, fun!
The weekend of October 22-23 Grandma Carlson came up here to our place for a weekend of fun! On Friday October 22, Amanda and her kids came up and meet us at Peltzers Farm for a day at the Pumpkin Patch! We had a blast and I got A TON of pictures! Enjoy!
On Saturday while Brooke was napping my Mom and I worked on this wreath that Sue and Laurie showed me how to make. I am happy with how it turned out, I just kinda wish I had not put them so close together. Anyway this is how it turned out. My Halloween Wreath!
Then we carved our little family of Pumpkins! We are all very happy with how they turned out :)
Here is Daddy and Brookie working on her Pumpkin!
Off to the Trunk Or Treat on Friday, Oct 29th! Brookie and I dressed up this year, Daddy did not dress up. I feel bad that he is not represented, he was there tho and we love Daddy. Here is Brooke the Monkey and Mommy the Cave woman!
Halloween Eve Brooke and I drove out to Rincon Indian Reservation where Daddy got a job as a Reserve Firefighter! Daddy was on shift and they just happened to be throwing a Super Spooky Haunted House at the station for the Reservation. Brooke and I were invited to attend so we took up the opportunity! It was SO fun to see where Daddy is now working, the station is BEAUTIFUL, and each of the guys we meet were super nice! They threw quite an awesome Haunted House! Brooke and I had a great Halloween with Daddy!
Kip and I have had this spider for 4 years now! We got it our first Halloween we were married. We randomly started hiding it in places that one another would find it, first off freak each other out, but it has also become a fun way to let one another know in the middle of a day that we were being thought about and are loved! We have gotten very creative in our hiding spots I must say. I hope that this little guy NEVER gets lost and always gets found. I hope he is there on our 50th Wedding Anniversary hiding in our cake :) Here he is! I suppose he needs a name? Any ideas?
