Brooklyn - 3 Years

Brooklyn is so full of life!! That is what I love about her most! There is never a dull moment with her around. Just like her daddy:) She is cautious yet fearless, meaning she never gets hurt but will try anything. She came into this world knowing what she wants and can get a room full of people to do exactly that. Brooklyn is so loving and sensitive. Sometimes all she wants to do is snuggle:) I am constantly amazed at how intelligent and logical she is. I see a little scientist, who studies things or concepts and learn them in and out, wanting to know more. She loves to dance, sing, and make up stories. She is a little ham, who likes to tease.
 Our sassy, beautiful girl...

Q & A:
1. Who is your best buddy?
"Braden stinker butt, I like Baylor too"
2. What is your favorite thing to do?
"paint, I go to dance class and you watch me on tv"
3. What is your favorite color?
"blue and pink"
4. What is your favorite show?
"I like Doc Mcstuffins"
5. What do you like to eat?

Doc McStuffins Birthday

For Brooklyn's 3rd birthday we celebrated on September 13th with a Doc McStuffins birthday party. Brooklyn dressed up to look just like her :) Everything was purple and pink!!
We celebrated with a few friends, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. For dinner there was pizza and for dessert, we had stethoscope sugar cookies, bandaid graham crackers, cake, gumballs, suckers, and mints. Also, each kid got their very own big book of boo boos!

 B had a little cold at the party so we had two cakes, one small for her and a larger doctor bag for everyone else.
We had planned to go to the zoo earlier that day but it was canceled due to a trip to the ER for grandma Olsen. She was helping me setup chairs when her finger got caught between two while I was trying to pull them apart. Her entire pinky fingernail was ripped out of the nail bed and the tip of her finger broken :( She still made it to the party, thanks to a heavy dose of medication, stitches and cast! Of all the days to be doctored, she picked this one:)
Doctor Brooklyn got very spoiled with lots of fun and girly presents!
The last three years have flown by!! We are so thankful we were blessed with our sweet Brooklyn girl! Happy Birthday!!

The Fruits of Our Labor

This year we decided to plant a garden in corner of our backyard.
The only thing not planted with seeds were the tomato plants.
Booklyn got so excited about watering it every night with her very own watering can.

After months of growth....
We made pickles and still had lots and lots of cucumbers. We grew several tomatoes, a few peas, and lots of corn. We also still have a few pumpkins growing, just in time for Halloween:)
It was so fun and actually a lot less work than we had expected. We will definitely plant another garden next year!
