3 Months Old

Brooks is now three months old. I can't believe it! He's been sleeping through the night for the last almost three weeks now. That's so wonderful! And I think this might be why...

He sucks his thumb! I know I shouldn't let him, but I think it's so adorable and I don't want him to stop. I'm sure it'll be a pain to take care of when he gets older. But I've heard of some babies that just quit on their own. I'll hope for that!

Brooks has been my best baby so far. He's so good for us and he's been growing and changing so much. I love to see him smile and coo away at anyone that will listen. He's such a sweet baby and we love him so much!!

My New Hair!

Last month, two people in one week called me a red head. Now, I have nothing against red heads. For Heaven's sake, I have to kids with red hair and I love it! But for me, I don't want red hair. So for my birthday last month, I got my hair colored and cut just last week. It's a dramatic change, well, the color is anyway, but I LOVE it!! Here are some pics...


and after...
When it comes to hair, I really like change and am really enjoying this!

Second Year of Pre-School

Thursday was the start of Aubree's second year of pre-school. Next year, KINDERGARTEN! She can't wait for that, but in the meantime, she LOVED her first day. She's going to a new pre-school and I have to say that I am very impressed with the teacher! Aubree had so much fun and is so excited to be doing the ballet class there at her school that happens right after her pre-school. We're really looking forward to a great year!

The Titanic

Brett had the day off from work on Monday, so he wanted to spend the day with all of us (HUGE SURPRISE!). After hauling hay, we all went to the Museum of Idaho. Yesterday was the last day of the Titanic exhibit. And ever since the movie Titanic came out (which I saw about 10 times), I've been completely fascinated by it. So I was THRILLED to be going to see real parts of it in person!!!

When we got inside, we were handed a "boarding pass" that looked like the real tickets. On the backs of each of the passes were information and details about an actual passenger on the Titanic. That was really interested to read and made things more personal and heart-wrenching.

When we got into the exhibits, there was this hushed reverence you could feel. It was so neat to see everything in person. It makes it all so real, and sad. We weren't allowed to take pictures of the exhibit, but these are what I did get.
