Dear Brooklyn,

....aka Brooks, Brooke the Cook, Cookers, Cookies, Brookie, Brookie Poo...


Tomorrow you turn two!!! These two years have flown by. You are so darling and cute...which is a good thing because...well...you are kind of mean...you bite...pull hair...your favorite pass time is to pinch. You smile and say, "I pinch." You are the youngest of four...so you're probably not really mean...you are just trying to be heard...get your point across. Get your point across you do. I thought your sisters were strong willed...I was wrong...I think God chuckled at my thoughts...smirked and said...."Oh you haven't seen anything yet." My.oh.my the force is strong in you...which I like...that means one day you'll be a leader...you won't be pushed around...and you'll make things happen. 


You are a great eater!!! You loooooove almost anything...what you don't like you feed to Harvey.

You are a terrible sleeper. The worst actually. I think you might have slept 4 whole nights since Christmas...which is weird because you slept through the night from 10 weeks of age until then. It boggles my mind. You have these  mad ninja like skills...you sneak into my bed...I don't hear you...or feel you...I just roll over and there you are. I pick you up and take you back to your room. You smile and say, " I love you so much, Mama."...it melts my heart...every time. 

You love to go to Sam's...it's like your favorite thing...One day we were headed there and realized we didn't have our card...so we had to turn around and drive back home...you cried and cried, "I wanna samples!!!" It was funny...and cute. 

You love doooooooowg,Harvey, Be-Beth, Lyla, Ju-Ju, and of course Dad. 

You are so independent. 

You hate clothes...any chance you get you remove them.

As of late...you will only wear swimsuits. Every morning you wake up...throw a swimsuit at me...and say, "Put on my swimsoup."...you recently discovered your sisters swim cap and goggles...you dig wearing those too.

You fancy shoes...I think you own more shoes that the whole family combine. No shoe is off limits...you think they are all yours....oh and the same theory applies to toothbrushes...all are game...I'm fairly certain you have used everyone's toothbrush at least once. 

You love swimming, baths, dancing, all things Frozen, side walk chalk, and swinging.

You are so cute and funny! Such a little ham!!! If we laugh at you...you eat it up! 

You have eyes that shine, like a pair of stolen polish dimes...dimples like dad...cute tiny teeth...and you usually smell like watermelon lip balm...or dads deodorant...it just depends on which one you got into that day.

I love you so much...I feel like might heart might explode sometimes.

I can't wait to see how this will of yours will be used. You will be a difference maker. I know God will do mighty things in your life.

xoxo.
Mom.
