A Brooklyn Christmas

WARNING - lots of baby pictures ahead! :) Because really she was the star of our family Christmas celebrating.

I love her smile. Smiling seems to be what she does best. And often. And sometimes loudly! Or with loud spit bubbles. :)

She jumps a LOT now and really enjoys her "jumping thingy", though with this silly face you really couldn't tell. I have no idea what this face was for....or maybe the camera just caught her funny. But I decided to share it because it makes me laugh.

This picture REALLY makes me laugh. She just laughs and laughs all the time and is always happy. The only time she isn't is when there is a need to take care of and she mostly just fusses rather than cry.

We saw this scene over and over while at Mom's house. Brooklyn loved to snuggle up with her Great-Grandma and be rocked. Most of the time she didn't fall asleep either; she just enjoyed the quiet time.

We were so happy that Brooklyn was able to participate in gift opening. She particularly enjoyed the gift bags because tissue paper is FUN! A perfect example of buying a gift for a child and they prefer the wrappings. :)

This stuffed dog was one of her favorite gifts. When you squeeze him he barks, so we were a little surprised that it didn't scare her.

And this picture also captures the back of her head, which I find particularly darling. I got teased quite a bit about my love of the back of her head. :)

What fun! i agree, adorable baby! Our Christmas sermon was focussed on Joseph, too...was really thought provoking as well.
