Ashley, Dorian & Charlotte come for a visit

My sister-in-law Ashley and her husband Dorian came to visit in mid-February to bless their sweet baby girl, Charlotte. It was so fun having them here! Dorian did a little photoshoot of all the babies, which was chaos-but hilarious. Ashley brought back a St. Patrick's day craft for the girls to work on, while the boys watched the babies. It's so fun to have 4 little cousins the same age-we can't wait for them to grow up and be old enough to all play together!

Oh, what a night!

February 19th was our 6 year anniversary.

We went to see Jersey Boys on Broadway. Last year when we were in New York for our anniversary we wanted to go because it got really good ratings, but the tickets were pretty expensive. This year it was in Baltimore so we decided to go. I didn't really know much about it (except that they sang Sheri Baby which my mom's crazy friend used to always sing to her on the phone) Who knew Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons sang so many good songs? I didn't. It was really good, but we were definitely one of the 10 youngest people there. It was kind of embarassing. haha

It was so nice to go out for dinner and to a show without the little kiddies and just enjoy each others company. Happy Anniversary Honey, I love you!

2 Month Check Up

On the 22nd Brooklyn weighed 9lbs 10 oz and was 21 3/4 inches long. 25th percentile for both!
She got two shots and was miserable for the rest of the day-it was so sad! Sierra always did pretty good with her shots.
We've been sick a lot around here lately and Brooklyn's managed to get the worst of it. First she got the flu (complete with vomiting and getting dehydrated-so scary!) And now she has a horrible hacking cough and is really congested. She's been coughing so hard that it makes her throw everything up. Poor baby! I can't wait for her to get better and get back to her normal cheery self. (and for me and eric to be able to sleep at night)
Before the sicknesses she was smiling a lot and cooing-really cute. She rolled from her belly to her back last week and she's been a lot better with her schedule.
EVERYONE who sees her says she looks exactly like Eric. Including the manager at Buckle. haha

she loves to escape from the swaddle
you should see the other attempts of a picture of the two of them. disaster.

She is so freaking cute, I can hardly stand it!
