Brooklyn is 1 year old today!

It amazes me that Brooklyn was born on January 17th 2007 and she is now a year old. She weighed 9lbs. 12oz. and has continued to grow so tall! I was thinking of this past year and what a blessing she has been and a wonderful addition to our family.
Here are some "words" she has learned in her year of life:)
*she says*
SSSS for Sister
baba(for bottle)
bye bye(and waves)
Brooklyn loves babies and we were amazed when she would see a real baby or a dolly
and say baby
She loves to point and gets exicted when she wants a toy that is her sisters.
She LOVES my phone and I swear that if that was her only toy she
would be happy with my phone....yet we continue to buy her toys:)
Brooklyn has been such a great sleeper and she now goes to bed at 8 and wakes up
between 7 and 8...she's LOVES her sleep and we do too:) When she wakes up she is so
happy and ready to start her day.
Brooklyn LOVES to take baths and she loves taking a shower with her sister.
She is a very determined little girl and she is a very happy little girl too.
She walks all over the place and loves to climb up the slide on the playground.
Of course she does the normal stuff like undo the roll of toilet paper, pull her
sister's hair and then smile and get exicted.
We have taught her a few sign language signs like more and all done. That way if
she is eating and she wants more it is easier for her to communicate through sign
language and then when she is all done she signs that as well.
There is nothing more precious than to see Mariyah and Brooklyn give hugs and
kisses. We are so thankful that they are sisters and we love our daughters so much.
We love you Brooklyn and Happy 1st Birthday to you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We had professional pictures taken when Brooklyn was 6 days old

This picture was taken right before she came home from the Hospital:)

I can't believe that she's already one! Its weird to think that Hailey will be that old in September. I bet it feels just like yesterday when she was born. I love her picture when she is 6 days old! What a cutie!

Oh...little Brooklyn! She is such a sweetie! I don't think that I ever saw that professional picture of her when she was 6 days old. What a darling baby she was! She looks so big in those 1 year pics. How fast they grow!
