9 month checkup

I took Brennan this week for her 9 month checkup. She weighs 20 lbs 11 oz and was 29" long. I was amazed that she had only gained 1 lb 2 oz in the last 3 months. All the crawling and pulling up must be burning a lot of calories! They had to take some blood to check her iron and when they pricked her toe she didn't flinch. (Ethan left the room because he can't stand it when they prick her.) She did get a little mad when the nurse was squeezing her foot to get blood but she never cried. When the doctor came in she said her iron was perfect and so was everything else. She was happy to hear that Brennan was eating so many different foods. Brennan had to have one shot so while the nurse was giving her the shot I held her hands and played with her. She didn't cry at all! I was so shocked and Ethan was happy! She's such a brave little girl.

4th of July

We had a busy but fun weekend! We went to a pool party on Friday at our friends house, the Saucedo's. Brennan had a great time swimming! We tried out her new raft and she loved it, just kept kicking her legs. I forgot the memory card to my camera so I couldn't take any pictures. I was able to get some pictures later that day at home. Gammi bought Brennan a 4th of July onesie so we had a little photo shoot. On Saturday we were supposed to go to Stephen's aunts house but Stephen was burned from being in the sun on Friday and Ethan had a little of sunburn too so we decided to stay home.

A few months ago I found the cutest dress that I wanted Brennan to wear for the 4th. I put it on her and of course we had to have another photo shoot. I swear she loves the camera. Whenever she sees the light on the camera she starts to smile. Maybe we have a future fashion model???

That evening we went to the Mall of GA to watch fireworks. We got there around 6:30p and set up our "compound". The Lee's and Saucedo's met us there and shortly after we all ate dinner. I had made chicken salad for Stephen & I and Brennan kept eyeing my sandwich. So I gave her a little piece of chicken and of course she ate it up and was looking for more. Around 9:30p the fireworks started and Brennan hardly took her eyes off of them, she was mesmerized.
