I found this digiscrap layout online yesterday at Wanderlust Designs, and threw in some cute pics from each month of Braska's first year. So I thought I'd share...maybe it's a bit of nostalgia for me as I prepare for the next "first year" to begin around here soon.

Mommy and Daddy think I'm funny because I've been saying, "Oh yeah!" about alot of things. Here's a little short movie to show you, and it also shows a couple other of my favorite things... cow and horse sounds!
Yesterday, my PT came to see me. We practiced my walking again, and I'm having alot of fun doing it! So last night Mommy and I showed Daddy how good I'm getting. I just wanted to do it over and over. I really like my walker!
(You might want to turn your sound down a little...Mommy gets kind of excited and goofy!)

Here's a movie of me practicing with Daddy. It's a little dark because it was close to bedtime.
I still don't like to sit in my Elmo chair alot, but I do like it to be right next to me. Mommy thinks I'm silly. I just like to sit by him while I'm watching my shows.
Saturday morning we had to get ready for going out and I had a quick bath. I found a little mirror in the tub that I never noticed before. Maybe Mommy will get me a bigger one.
We got dressed and ready. I got to wear a new jacket that my friend Larkin passed on to me after Sophie was too big for it. Thanks Larkin and Sophie!
We went to Auntie Janice's baby shower, or I guess it was really for Baby Xander who will be here soon, next month right after Kinlee's coming. Xander is so lucky! He got a whole bunch of cool stuff!
I didn't get a nap before, so I fell asleep and took a long nap while everyone was eating and playing games. It was comfy!
On Sunday, I got to wear a dress that I got last year. I finally got big enough for it! It's pink and soft with little sparkly snowflakes. It even matched my BabyLegs, and they kept me toasty warm for church.

Monday I went to school again. This time Jack was there!! We had a good time, especially in the romper room again. That's my favorite part, for sure. Mommy took a picture when she and Jack's mommy came to get us. We were a little tired by this time.
Tuesday I played with my toys, but Mommy thought it was funny that I used them a little bit different than they're supposed to be used. You mean that's not a chair??
On Wednesday, we had to stay home and a bunch of guys came to work on stuff at the house. Jack and Miss Julie came by to visit since we couldn't leave. It was fun showing Jack my room and playing in there. I even left the door open most of the time. Mommy says that's the rule when boys are in my room. We shut it once and the mommies came right away. Click on the picture to see all the good shots from the day!

I have been a little busy this week, so I've got several things to tell you about. But while I'm working on those, I'll show you some cute outfits I got to wear for the first time this week.
For church on Sunday, I had a little set with a shirt and skirt and even tights that matched. Pooh was even on the skirt!
Then Sunday afternoon I tried a new sweater that Auntie Rachel got for me at our favorite store. It's a really pretty green.
More stories to come soon! I went to school again this week!!

Here at our house we always watch American Idol from the beginning to the end. I like all the music, and Mommy and Daddy like to make guesses on who will win. I love to sing and listen to songs and Mommy has been singing songs to me since I was a tiny baby, so we do songs every day. We're getting ready for Idol to start soon, so we've been singing extra!
Last night, I thought I would do my first movie of singing time. I was in a pretty silly mood and didn't want to be still, but Mommy thought I should let you see anyway.
This is the song I know the best, Jesus Loves Me, but it's not my best showing of it, that's for sure.
And this is my favorite song from my FAVORITE show... Blue's Clues!!! Usually I can say Blue's Clues really nice and show the hands like Steve does, but I didn't feel like it when Mommy got the camera out. But the Mail song is always fun! (Mommy even got a word wrong but I knew my part!)

My teacher is Miss A, and she is really nice. We played with music and sang songs in the circle. I even had my own chair! I sat next to my new friend Z. She's a little bit older, but she's still 2. We went to the romper room, that's great big room where they have great big toys and lots of room to run and climb and play. Miss A told Mommy all about how I tried to get up on the big stuff, and how the teachers helped me walk on the balance beam since I was trying to do it.
We made pictures, and I brought mine home to show Belle. Miss A helped, but I did some of it too.
I told Mommy all about school on the way home. I just kept talking and laughing all the way in the car, but I don't think she always knew what I was saying. I was just so excited! I wanna go back again, but Mommy says I only get to go one time each week for now. When I turn 3, I'll get to go more. I can't wait!
I had my milk for lunch and then I was tired quick. School is fun but it wore me out!

There's a general pregnancy update here. And there some info on what's left to get here. Thanks for keeping up with us!!
This was my attempt at a picture of her first school day outfit. Forgot to turn off Sesame Street though. Check out that snazzy shirt, Amy/Jen! :o)
(Just for an interesting perspective on this kid's weird sizing issues... She's 25 months old. That's a 9 month shirt, 24 month "skinny" jeans with the adjustable waist cinched to the max, and size 3 shoes that are still PLENTY big. Oh, and underneath is a 9 month onesie. She could wear 9-12 month jeans since they fit around her waist but they're too short. These are a little long still, but better than short in the winter. Eventually she'll even out...maybe.)
When she got to her room, we were the first ones there. She liked the little chairs and one of the aides brought her a toy. Anything that she can make noise with is a winner. She kept hitting the orange key...that's my color coordinated girl!

Miss C came over on Tuesday to help me with my eating. She keeps track of my calories and makes sure I'm getting enough good stuff to keep me growing. She brought me a cookie and I smashed it up. But then guess what? I grabbed the little bits and put it in my mouth. Mommy and Miss C were surprised! I only did it once, though. That's just the way I do things, you know!
When Daddy came home for lunch, we played and I showed him how good I can hang on. Check out how high I am! I was sitting and he just kept going with his hands so I held on tight. It was fun! Mommy and Daddy think it's funny when they remember that one of the doctors told them when I was a tiny baby in the hospital that kids with my *extra* goodness "don't have a grip." Ha!
We took Belle to see Uncle Jody on Wednesday so she could get all her shots and stuff. He's a doctor for animals, and since we live close now and Belle is back with us, he can take care of her really good. Belle really hates to go to her doctors, but she wasn't quite as scared this time even though she still wasn't happy. Maybe it's because she knew the doc! Now we just have to go get her silly long hair cut pretty this week.
