Each week at gymnastics through the summer we have a themed week. This week was pirates! As I gathered the materials to whip up a custom costume and went on the search for a sword and tattoo I realized I may be one of those moms that go a tad overboard! Hopefully she will have siblings someday so my time and effort isn't completely devoted to her and she won't stand out as the kid who's mom goes over-the-top with everything! But seriously look at this pic.....she needs to be modeling!! She ended up being so stinkin' cute in it I think it'll be our Halloween costume too!

We went back to the water park at Magic Springs on Saturday. I was trying to wipe off these little dirt specks on her cheeks and noticed they are FRECKLES not dirt spots! Hallelujah....she is a MINI ME! About a month ago, when we were outside in the sun, I noticed the tops of her hands are scarred with tiny dots. They are from her IV in NICU being moved around 100 times. I couldn't believe that it scarred her little hands like that, and seeing that brought back a whirlwind of memories. I am so very blessed to have such a healthy and beautiful baby!

She snuck out of bed last night, after panicking I found her playing in her playroom very very quietly. I shouted "Brynlie, what are you doing?" she got upset and told ME that I scarred her! I'm sure I did I was so happy to see her, but really it's not like she didn't hear me YELLING her name throughout the house until I found her. I can say one's NEVER a dull moment with her!
