Austin has had two loose teeth on top for a while now. One of them has been so loose that he could close his mouth and his tooth would stick out from between his lips. It was barely hanging on by a thread for DAYS! He did not want to pull it!!

Yesterday before breakfast, Brett convinced Austin to tie a thread around it "just for fun." So he went along with it. Brett tied the knot so tight that he couldn't get the string off of the tooth. The only other option was to just pull the tooth out. Austin was not going to church with a string tied around his tooth, so he bucked up and pulled it out.

It's so funny now to look at him and see a toothless grin. Austin's getting so big!!

Aubree's Getting Ready For Kindergarten

Aubree had to get registered for Kindergarten last week and to do that, she had to get her Kindergarten shots beforehand. I took her into the doctor and she was weighed and measured. We learned that Aubree is 3'7" tall, which puts her in the 75th percentile for her height. And she weighs 49 pounds, putting her in the 95th percentile for her weight. The poor girl is growing just like her mama did. In fact, I was as tall as I am now by the fifth grade.

For her shots, she had to get four different vaccines - getting poked four different times. But she was amazing. Aubree didn't even cry!! She is one tough cookie!!! Austin balled when he got his shots. I was so proud of Aubs!

She's growing like a weed and she's got the most fun and funny personality. Just take a look at these pictures...

We are sure lucky to have Aubree as a part of our family. We all love her so much!

Brynnlee Is 2!!

Today is Brynnlee's birthday and I can't believe that she already TWO!!!! She had a very full day of fun! At walking today she got to play with all of her favorite friends. Then she helped me decorate her cake by trying all of the candy to see which ones tasted good. She really liked that part! And later this evening, Brett's parents came over for cake and ice cream. It was a sweet and simple celebration for this sweet and simple little girl! We sure love our Brynner Baby!!! Happy birthday, Brynn!

I was having a hard time thinking of what to get Brynnlee for her birthday, so finally I just asked her what she wanted. She thought for a minute and replied, "Shoes!" That's my kind of girl!!!

Here she is brushing her hair with her new brush that's just her size. Kathy made this ADORABLE quilt for Brynn's baby dolls. It is so CUTE!!!
She LOVED her butterfly cake!!
Oh, and Brooks started to crawl today! Not just his normal army/worm crawl, but really crawling!! He's getting so big!
