In Brighton's birthday package from my family, there was this Leap Frog farmhouse. It goes on the fridge and has a whole bunch of magnets to put animal heads to the matchings bodies. When you push the buttons, it plays music, which gets Brighton moving! She's always been one to bounce when a toy makes music, and she's been doing this all night, so I had to get her while she was in a good mood.

Brighton and I went on the road with Dale on Friday because he was going to Lopez Island, where I've never been! This is at the ferry terminal on our side of the water. We had to get up so early, and this is the sun, just starting to peak over the mountains.
This is the huge ferry that we got to ride our car onto. It's humongous! As we walked into the sitting area on top, I thought of Batman: The Dark Knight and was worried there might be a ferry of convicts that might try to blow us up. We were safe, phew! (If you haven't seen that movie, you NEED to, and then you'll understand just how ridiculous that whole scene really is.)
Brighton was crabby and wiggly on the ride, and this is daddy holding her because mommy was too tired, hungry, and crabby herself to deal with it.
I decided to stop nursing Brighton about a week and a half ago, and put her on good ol' heffer milk! She's only had water to drink, so this was a little new in her sippy cup. Here's her first reaction. What do you think? And we've still had no progress as of yet...

And PS- If you're ever planning on donating your hair, make sure you do some research about the companies that you can send it to. Some are better than others, and some may donate to causes that are important to you. Locks of Love is a popular one I'm sure you've all heard of, but it might not be the best choice for you.
This first video, is just of Brighton playing. I love it because right in the beginning you can see her grunt. This is what she does when she falls down, gets something taken away, drops a toy, or when I tell her no. This is what she does all day. I clean up her tupperware and plastic dishes mess at least 20 times a day.
I like this video just because she is talking a lot!
This is Brighton eating breakfast on Sunday. I just love how happy she is to be eating! I think it's her most favorite time of the day- she smiles more, I have tons of pictures of her eating, and she talks the most when she has food in her mouth. And all those little teeth are just precious!
