Today we were down to Gary and Kaye's for Sunday lunch. Tyson went out to help Gary change water and I put Brooklyn on the floor so I could wash my hands. As I was drying my hands, Kayla said that Brooklyn was crawling! I ran into the room but missed seeing it. She had only moved each leg once but had figured it out. We put toys out in front of her to see if she would start crawling again. She started moving, although her legs went faster than her arms and she face planted a couple of times. She would kind of hop, run and crawl all at the same time, which made it very entertaining for us. Tyson came back a little while later and we got her crawling again for longer periods of time. We got the camera out and got video of the latest milestone she's hitting. I can't believe she's hitting it so fast! She's only 7 months old!

Today was eventful. We went down to Gary and Kaye's house to work on the gate for the stairs and the boards I've been waiting to pain and put vinyl lettering on. One board is going to be Tyson's Christmas gift with his favorite scripture. We worked on all of that until after 3:00 pm and decided to head over to Rigby to pick up a few things. Brooklyn was asleep back in the crib so we were going to run up to the house to get her carseat and drop everything off at the house. Just as we were headed out the door, I heard Brooklyn crying. I put the stuff I had in my hands down and went back to get her. When I got back there, Brooklyn was on her hands and keens crying. Her face was dirty and it looked funny. When I realized what it was, I yelled for Tyson to come back and help. He thought her leg was stuck in the bars of the crib but realized she was covered in poop when I handed her to him.

She had blown out in the crib and rolled around in it. It was in her hair, on her face, down her arms and legs, all over her onsie by her diaper, all over the sheets, bumper pad and crib. We put her in the tub after we got her clothes off. I asked Tyson how we were ging to get it off her face and he told me to stick her face under the faucet of the tub. I put my hand in the water and splashed water on her face and tried to rub the poop off with my hand. It wouldn't come off so we had to get a wash cloth and we scrubbed it off. Once we got her cleaned up, we got the crib cleaned and all of the sheets, towels and other dirty things in the washer. After everything was cleaned up, we headed up to the house and then over to Rigby. It was quite the blowout and both Tyson and I got a good laugh out of it!! There's always the first time for everything!

Brooklyn started saying "Moma" and "Mom" today!! Her first words. Tyson doesn't think she is really saying it and that she just learned a new sound but I like to think that she knows who I am. She is growing up so fast and I can't seem to keep up with her as well as I would like. It feels like just yesterday that she came into our lives, and now she's almost 7 months. I love getting to be with her all day and seeing the new things she is discovering about the world. She is a lot of fun to spend the day with!! I love her so much!
