She is growing up...

There are so many things to update you on. Britton is getting so big and I can't believe how fast it is going. It seems like just yesterday she was born, but no she is already 7 1/2 months old.

Let's see if i can remember everything that has gone on with her in the last month. Mother's Day was awesome. We went to church and then to brunch with my parents. We met at Applebees. Britton sat in the highchair at the restaurant for the first time. Of course she was the life of the party (As I sit here updating the blog she is sitting on the floor talking to her toys). Britton and Chad gave me a mothers bracelet that Chad actually made (not just ordered).

The 11th of May the adoption became final, so the following weekend we had a party celebrate and to thank the many family and friends for all the love and support we were given through out the entire process. I just can't believe that from the time that we started looking into adoption and then getting our beautiful daughter was less than one year.

Daddy's birthday was the 21st of May and also the day that Britton's first tooth broke through. This little girl is very rarely fussy and teething does not see to bother her for the most part. She now has two teeth. She also started on her vegetables the week of May 15th. We have also moved into the big bath tub.

Memorial Day weekend we did so many things. We went out to the lake one evening to spend time with Grandma and Grandpa. (really Grandma wanted to show Britton off) Saturday evening we spent time with Mike and Toni and their daughter Sidney. Toni smoked chicken for dinner, which was awesome and then we got to take Britton swimming for the first time. She is going to be a water baby. We just have to be careful of the ears. Then on Monday we went to the zoo as a family. Britton loves to be outside.

This week her second tooth has broken through and she is definitely becoming more and more independent. Last night Chad and I were working on folding laundry and Britton was showing great interest in the basket. So Chad picked her up and put her in the empty laundry basket. She loved playing in it for quite awhile. She is such a happy and curious baby.

Last weekend I did get a chance to work on Britton's scrapbook so I need to take some pictures and get a few of those pages up here for you.

Thank you for peeking in on us. Have a great week.
