Today we had to say goodbye to our dog Shyla. She was approx 10-11 years old and has been with our family for 7 of those years. She was the greatest dog you could ever ask for. She had been showing signs of aging in the last couple years, and lately it had just gotten worse. She could barely go up the stairs, no matter how much she ate she was so skinny and didnt get out of bed often. Not to mention her teeth started falling out. So we knew it was time for her to go to doggy heaven. Its a sad day, but we know she is in a better place. We love you Shy, thanks for all the great memories! "Goodbye NANA..............."

Kensi FINALLY lost her 1st tooth on her own! It took forever to get loose and even longer to get the thing out! We were literally pulling on that tooth with all of our might, and it was just barely hanging there! I thought I was going to have to call the dentist to get it out, but then we got it. It was very traumatic and there were a lot of tears!

Growing so fast! Actually not really! Berklee is such a tiny little thing. I took her in for her check-up, and she is 21 lb 6 oz (10%) and 31.25 inches (25%). She takes after the older girls and needs extra calories where she can get them! She still isnt talking much, mostly just screams. She can say, mama, dada, bye bye, hi, hot, no, uh-oh, I think thats about it. She tries to say a few other things too. Naps now are a mere 2 hours, if Im lucky, and that is only 1x per day. But she does sleep at least 12 hours every night, so I cant complain. She loves to give hugs and kisses, and will give you a million kisses in a row, and say maaaaaaaa! very loud after each one. She isnt a big eater these days and loves to feed most of her food to the dog. She will get a string cheese out of the fridge, have me open it, and immediately hand it to the dog. silly girl. She loves to play with my phone, she shattered the screen so bad you can barely read anything on it. She is constantly standing up on the counter or table, and emptying all ziplocs out of the box and tupperwear out of the drawers. She has 9 teeth, and another molar on the way. She hates the car, gets pissed all the time, even with a movie on. Gets even more pissed if she cant get her socks off. You cannot get her to keep socks or shoes on. loves to do rasperries and click her tongue, her favorite shows are Jake and the Neverland Pirates, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and spongebob. Her favorite foods are strawberry oatmeal, yogurt, chicken nuggets, mac and cheese apples and oranges, oh and she LOVES rice crackers and toast.

Happy birthday to my sweet Brinley!! We started off the festivities on Sunday, having Papa's pancakes at the in-law's and celebrating with Brad's side of the family. Monday after school we went to Classic Skating with her friends Lauren, Londyn, and Hayden, they all had so much fun. Tuesday, her actual birthday she woke up to a few gifts: Justin Bieber sheets, a monster high shirt and Nanny McPhee. I let her and Kensi miss school. She chose to go to the Disney store to pick the rest of her presents, my mom, gramma and Hailey came with. She got a ton of really cute stuff! Then she wanted lunch at Arbys at the mall. At dinner time we partied with everyone and had cake and pizza. I think she had a great week! Brinley, you are such a big girl, I cant believe you are already 6!! Time just goes by so fast! You are so smart and so sweet. You have such a tender heart and care so much for others, and you are SO goofy!! You love to dance, tumble, GO TO SCHOOL, your so affectionate and such a happy little thing. We all just love you so much and we are so lucky to have you in our family! I hope you had a great birthday! I love you, Mommy :)
