Today we all went on a family hike. Huck and Bailey had a blast and Brooke did great in the baby carrier.

I love Brooke's paci and how she is sleeping in her swaddle position. :)

Visiting cousin Eli

We were at Ben's jobsite last week and we went to Arlington to visit cousin Eli. I absolutely love B and him hanging out and can't wait for all our memories to come in the future. They are 19 days apart.

Lake Day

Ben and I had a wonderful Saturday at the lake. Grandpa Bill came up to spend time with Brooke.  We had a blast ... We definitely needed it....Lots of sunshine, firefly, sailor jerrys, portside tiki bar, and time together. B did great with Grandpa Bill.  It was the first time being away from her for 7 hours. We both made it. :)

Playing outside!

We went to Blacksburg to hang out with family today and had a cookout. Brooke loved playing outside! It's been a great holiday weekend! I love her smile in the pic.

Happy Memorial Day! :)

Bathtime is one of Brooke's absolute favorite things to do. We started a week ago giving her a bath every night for our nightly routine. B loves it!  She is always so happy and we probably could leave her in there for a week!! She now plays with all her toys. (I think it's Mommy and Daddy's favorite time too!)

First smile

Brooke and I decided to join Ben this week in Leesburg at his jobsite.  We had her first month check up and then left for her first road trip. She slept the entire way!  So proud of her!  And then we just got to Leesburg and after she ate she smiled for the first time. Ben and I both saw it and we've seen about 7 or 8 already.

So happy!
