Brea now.Lily then.Lily now. LOVE her crooked smile!!!Five generations together for Christmas.
Brea loves her dress-ups. They are her world. She could care less about time out... so now we call the "garbage man" (a.k.a Papa Bill). Sometimes he takes them to "the dump" for a while. If she is good, he brings them back. Her glass slippers are currently at "the dump".
Speaking of Papa Bill, Brea loves him too... and Grandma Meadows (Don't cringe mom). I don't think Brea would love Papa Bill as much if she knew his secret identity.
As weird as it sounds... I don't love not being pregnant. I didn't love it when I was pregnant, but I miss it now. People are nicer to you when your pregnant. They smile at you (probably just because they are glad to see someone so much fatter than they are) and they always want to help you. However, I don't miss the way they give you unsolicited advice, when they feel there is no such thing as personal space, and when people (especially other women) like to tell you how large you are. WHY would any pregnant woman want to hear "You're huge!"??? Pretty sure I'm aware of the giant belly I carry around all day, thank you very much. (Okay, I'm done with the rant.)
Brea loved Christmas... she also loves Aunt Shell... Aunt Shell loves Brea too... she is super pumped... I'm just letting you know in case you couldn't tell. Shell hides her emotions.Brea loves stickers... this is what happens when I leave Brea alone with Lily. And so it begins...Brea LOVES to swim. She also LOVES Nemo... just a little confused, bless her heart.Brea loves Aunt Whit-ty. Whit-ty loves Brea. Apparently, Brea loves to smell roses. Brea loves Papa Butler. Watching them melts my heart.Brea really loves to take pictures... she was saying "cheese" for the entire time we tried to get a picture of this many people at one time. It was hilarious.
2009 was a great year. It completely flew by. When I look back I just love all the memories we've made with our family and friends. Those really are the precious times. I am so thankful for loving friends who are so willing to help. It humbles me and makes me want to be a better person. I love the closeness we share with our extended families. It's always crazy, but totally worth the chaos. We love you all!!!
