While we were in Nauvoo we had to get a picture of the girls on top of the sunstone in the quarry. It is something we do everytime we are there. It is neat to see the changes in our family when we do it. I am also going to include all the ones we have taken in the past.

Jon and Janet's Wedding

David's brother Jon got sealed in the Nauvoo Temple on October 8th. We were so happy that we could make it. I took a few pictures while we were there and thought I would post them.

David's sister Karin took these of Brooke (she was very hungry and started sucking on her thumb at the end):

Sidenote: We were asked to wear one of their wedding colors for the pictures and I chose purple. I am also going to use them for family pictures this year.

Random Brooke

I have quite a few friends that have had babies and seeing their newborn pictures made me want to get one of Brooke. I took off her clothes and put a headband on, I put her on the ottoman on her tummy, but she wouldn't cooperate (probably because she was awake). So the next few days I tried to get cute pictures of her with her clothes on. These are some of the pictures I got!

We have a good friend who stops by often. Lately she has been reading a lot of books to Reagan. This was one of the times that Abi and Lauren were there also. Gayle didn't want to look at the camera, but I would say that it was a great picture of all the girls!

Big Sister!

Reagan is such a good big sister. She loves Brooke so much, always asking to hold her. We have had a few problems with her getting mad when she can't hold her or trying to take Brooke from us. Last night she got into trouble for picking Brooke up by her jammies and pulling her off the ottoman when being told not to. It scared me, but Brooke is fine. Here are a couple pictures I got of them together!

1 Month old!

I am so late in posting this because Brooke is now over 6 weeks old, but these are her 1 month picures that I took. At her 1 month appointment she was 11 pounds 4 ounces. I also included pictures of the other girls at 1 month also so you can compare. I think they look a lot alike.




Tummy Time

Here are a few pictures of Brooke with tummy time. She was just starting to turn her head and then she got tired and fell asleep.

Riding the ponies

It is tradition that we ride the ponies at the Hoopeston Sweetcorn Festival. We went with Grandma and Grandpa while they were still here. Reagan loved riding and even threw a fit when it all stopped.
