Brynlie got her first hair cut on January 7th, ummmmm.....yes I said first! She's not ever had enough hair to give a second thought to a hair cut, but her bangs were actually getting long, and there some opinionated people in my family kept expressing how it was past due so I made her an appointment. I had asked her several times in the week prior but she just kept saying she didn't want a hair cut. When the day came I did what I do best....bribed her! Told her we would go play at the park after she got a little trim. She did great, but her baby doll Ava also needed a hair cut. When went to the park for a little bit, but it was so windy that I decided to move onto Plan B since we were still batteling colds. Plan B.....Helloooooo Chuckie Cheese!!!! While there we reported a broken machine and when the guy came to fix it I guess it had been broken a while becuase the machine keeps a memory of how many tickets it should of spit out. It was a ton, and the guy gave them ALL to Brynlile. Yea, we get to move up a crap level in Chuckie Cheese toys!
On January 9th, it snowed and snowed and snowed some more. Brynlie went sledding for the first time and completely shocked me! She is usually such a scardy cat about everything, but she absolutely loved it!! I could of sent her down a 3 story hill and the girl wouldn't of cared a bit. We had so much fun laughing, sledding and attempting a snowman. Best snow day I can remember.....ever!!

It's been a busy holiday month with lots of parties and lots of eating! We've stayed busy getting Christmas orders steadily out the door, with the very very very (and I mean it this time) last one going out today!
Brynlie has been an absolute trooper staying home and entertaining herself for a lot of the day while I'm working. I'm definitely looking forward to some time off this week to just hang out and play with my little angel.
Unfortunately the week did not start off so great. Brynlie has the worst ear infection, with a ruptured drum, I've ever seen and I have a cold. She started complaining Sunday night and I didn't think so much of it until I hear her put her finger in her ear....it sounded like she put her finger in a bucket of slim. EWWWWW!! I took a look at it besides it being fire engine red she had a ton of drainage. Within just an hour she was running a fever and her whole face was red. We went to see the doctor this morning and even after cleaning out her ear she said it was still so full of puss and mucus she couldn't see anything. Antibiotics and Ibuprofen for 5 days and hopefully we'll be on the mend.
She picks up more and more and more with each day. Here are the latest funnies:
She tells me, with arms crossed "I not happy to you!" meaning....I'm not happy with you.
She tells me, "you the best in the hole wurld mommy" I've got to get that on video!!
"Canny Corn" = Candy Canes
There would be a lot more if my memory were better......
I'm really looking forward to Santa visiting this year, he's bringing some awesome presents! Sometimes she likes him and sometimes she doesn't, sometimes she gets him confused with clowns! LOL
Gigi brought her Elf on the Shelf this year, but she doesn't quite get the concept just yet. We've been talking about being naughty or nice this year, and sometimes she just can't hold it together anymore, she folds and yells "I'm just going to be naughty, I want to be naughty!" And boy has she shown me what naughty is lately! I've been the mother that is holding her child up off the ground by one arm (yes, in a public place) trying to plea with her to walk while my other hand is full of bags, purse, keys, etc....., the mom that is prying tiny little fingers off something (particularly a pillow pet) in the check-out line while she's screaming, and the one who hands a toy to the lady in the check-out line (because I let the 3 year old walk around the store with it just to be able to get through the store) explaining in the sweetest Mommy voice that I can muster that we will be asking Santa for this super fabulous doll instead of buying today all while my child is convulsing with a look-a-like mini seizure in the basket!
Ending on a "nice" note, she is still super sweet the majority of the time. Wanting to snuggle on the couch, giving lots of kisses, always telling me she loves me and loves to help me do just about anything around the house especially cooking. I'm not sure how this happened, but she has me convinced she has to sleep with Mommy in Mommy's bed to be "comfurtbaly"
She's asked me several times this month if she could pleeeeease have a baby brother! LOL! I told her that she would need to talk to the big man upstairs about that request! She has now decided that she is going to ask Jesus for a baby brother and a puppy for Christmas.
I've gone back and forth several times about getting us a dog and still have not made a decision. I thought now that I'm home I would for sure be able to get one, but we still stay so busy that I'm still not sure.
Here's some pictures from this month

This morning while fixing her hair I said "Brynlie, please quit being so dramatic" as she was being a little over the top about me hurting her "hair". She replied "Mommy, quit being so bossy!!" It's so hard to get on to her when everything she says is hilarious!

Bryn was a super hero for Halloween. Gigi taught her how to say dant-ta-da-daaaaah when she put her cape on. It was a really cute (hand made by Mommy) outfit! We had a week long event of getting candy! She got candy at dance and gymnastics, went trick-or-treating at school, a carnival with cousins and 2 round of trick-or-treating that weekend. The girls fought so much over who was going to ring the doorbell each time we finally broke them up and let them go on each side of the street! I took a gallon size ziplock bag of candy into work to give away!
