We started the new year with a BANG!!! Literally! We hosted New Year's Eve at our house this year! We had a fun evening filled with homemade bbq chicken pizza, fireworks, sparkling cider, and of course cards! So fun!!! We were lucky enough to have my whole family here in addition to my Aunt Tammy and her family. We lit fireworks in the front yard and had laughs when a few sparks started on the neighbor's lawn. Tori's car was a little close to the fireworks but luckily no damage was done. We stayed up until the wee hours of the morning having a wonderful time.

Brooklyn turned 5 Months on 1-17-12. She is at such a fun stage!!! She is so happy and smiles all the time!! She is able to hold things very well (as you can see)! She is so curious and loves to grab anything in sight and try to put it in her mouth!! We have so much fun watching her laugh! Especially daddy, he can get her to giggle better than anyone else!

She rolled over for the first time on 1-16-12. Almost 5 months to the day!! She still doesn't love to be on her tummy very long but it is so cute to watch her roll over!!

She loves being in the same room as mommy and actually hates to be left alone, sound like anyone else you know? So we have found creative ways to allow her to "help" mommy around the house. She usually rides in the laundry basket while I take it from the laundry room to the living room. Of course laughing the whole time!
