Brooklyn started preschool on September 9th. Her teacher is Mrs. Kathy (Kathy Miles). She was so excited the day of preschool. She made sure her and Baylee had a good lunch because she didn't want to be hungry at school. Daddy had to come home and see her go to her first day of preschool. On the way up asked if this preschool was a reputable school, I assured him it was! The night before we had to go get her a new backpack. The one mommy picked out wasn't cool (black, pink and white) she needed a princess one. She settled on a Tinker Bell one.
Yesterday for Labor day all the Lemmon's got together and had a little barbecue. It has been a long time since we were all able to get together. We were able to snag a pic and newest little men in the family and the woman they love most!! Can't say I can take a very good pic but all the boys are pretty cute!
Because Baylee and Jaxsen are so close they have always had a little bond. I think Baylee was the first one to make him laugh. This bond continues to grow and they get older. And because Jaxsen is such a big guy they are almost the same size! Baylee can even sit on his lap! SO CUTE!! I just want to eat them both!
I just had to post this cute pic of my girls. As Baylee gets older Brooklyn and her spend most of their day together playing, watching t.v. or fighting! It is reall nice to see them together. Even when Baylee or Brooklyn hurt eachother Baylee always comes over and gives her a hug! Oh so sweet! I remember when we found out that we were having another girl both Andrew and I were a little scared and frustrated but what a blessing it has become! Heavenly Father is truly knows what is best!
In the last couple weeks Drew has started his 2009 football season! He has grown into a big kid! Last game he weighed in at 137.5 lbs. At 138 you can only play offense, because I guess they are afraid they may hurt the little guys! Drew has never been one of those so we have never had to worry. But I guess the saying does go "The bigger they are, the harder they fall!" Let's hope that isn't our case! Drew is really enjoying this year and is learning a lot! It is exciting to watch him play! He does need to get a little more aggresive but that will come with time!
I can't believe my little lady is old enough to head to preschool. Tomorrow is her first day! And she is so excited. She is going Mrs. Kathy Miles Preschool. Last week we went up to a little open house so Brooklyn could see where she would be going to preschool. I am very impressed by how she has everything set up!! I am sure Brooklyn will have loads of fun, I just hope she listens!
Here are some little things about Brooklyn right now.
She loves to wear her swimming suit and will wear it all day if I would let her. She has quite the tan.
She hates, hates getting her hair brushed! She cries everyday!
She love polly pockets.
Brooklyn has become quite the little artists. Her latest thing is making all of us cards with stick figures inside. Very cute and wonderful to see how much she is progressing.
Still loves those princesses and everything Disney.
Hates Jeans!! I only got her one pair of jeans for school I am sure it will be a fight to wear them.
Did I mention she has 7 cavities!! She has to go in for surgery and get them all filled on the 22nd of September!
Loves leggings! And she looks so cute in them.
Loves to dance, anytime a song is on that cute little bum is dancin'!
Is a wonderful big sister and such a great little helper. I can give her a list of things I need in her room and she remembers it all! SO IMPRESSED!
Someone in my family told Brooklyn we are eating at Cinderella's castle when we go to Disney World in November. The funny thing is Brooklyn has no clue when November is so everyday she tells me she wants to eat at the castle when I ask her what she wants for lunch! It is going to be a long 6 months!
Brooklyn got a new stroller for her dollies but isn't allowed to have until she goes poop in the potty (refer to old blog). She refuses to go number 2 in the potty but really really want her stroller. Anyways she comes to me one night and saysBrooklyn: "My dolly so heavy."Me: "I sorry."Brooklyn: "I think I need my stroller to put heavy dolly in."She thinks she is so slick! Must get it from her dad!
We are pulling into Walmart yesterday and Brooklyn says, Brooklyn: "I get a snow white toy?" Me: "We'll see." Brooklyn: "Don't say no mama. You be nice to me." Honestly what do you say to that?
Brooklyn wakes up a Grandma Lemmons house this morning and tells grandma, Brooklyn: "I wanna make cookies!" (At 8:30 in the morning I might add.) Grandma: "I've got to go to work right now." Brooklyn: "Grandma, girls don't go to work, boys do." Where she gets her logic I'll never know. Hope grandma is ok!
I picked up Drew yesterday and he tells me that he got his license to shoot birds. (Which I am not a fan of of but that is up to him). Anyways he says he was able to go hunting last week. I said- ME: "How did you do?" DREW: "I can't hit the broad side of a barn" just a serious as can be.
Grandma and Brooklyn were making cookies and grandma happened to be a little tired. In the process of making cookies Brooklyn spilled a glass of juice that was on the counter. Grandma apparently said a little too loud "GET DOWN!" Brooklyn ran off crying, a few minutes later she returned and said to Grandma "Grandma, you scared me to crap!"
Brooklyn: Mom, you know what? Me: What? Brooklyn: (In her most serious voice) Trix are for kids! And that silly rabbit keeps trying to get them! He is such a silly rabbit!
04/10 As I was putting the girls down for a nap I told Baylee that if she got out of bed I was going to spank her butt (I have to threaten in order for her to stay put!) Brooklyn always has to add as soon as I say I am going to spank someones butt "With a spoon." I don't know where she got that from. Anyways Baylee this time decided to say "With a spoo, or a fooook, or a knife. Really harrrd. All I could do was laugh.
5/10 We went into the bathroom this evening and miss Baylee had about 15 of the band-aids removed from the paper, spread out and stuck to the bathroom counter. ARRRGGGG!
Baylee and Jaxsen were going crazy tonight wrestling and running all over the living room! Andrew looked at them as they were crawling all over him and said "Who put a quarter in you?" Baylee responded by saying "ME!"
