Rick has been crazy busy with work the last few weeks so here is a quick photo blog of all things Brynna:

On Friday Rick worked from home in the a.m. and then the Nelsons made a trip to Freeport to pick up some winter duds for B-girl. We had a great lunch at the Mediterranean Grill - B spent the whole time flirting with a 4 year-old boy. When we returned home it was raining pretty hard. Brynna's new thing is to walk from the car to the rear of the house and up the back steps. True to form the rain didn't stop her. In fact she attempted to run away from us and onto the lawn, picking up wet leaves and sticks. Brynna hates clutter and debris!

Rick and I discovered last night that we have one of those kids that prefers to be naked. Unfortunately Brynna has now figured out how to take her own shirt off. Especially proud of her accomplishment B decided to dance around in circles in the living room while patting her belly.

Further demonstrating her independence Brynna, at most meals, will very carefully attempt to jab food (even cheerios) with her fork. It is amazing how focused she can be!

Last weekend B spent the night with her Mimi Jo and Papa Don at the lake while Rick and I caught a UMaine Hockey game. We had seats right against the glass and adjacent to one of the goals. Great seats if you are looking for constant excitement! I can't begin to count how many pucks smacked the glass in front of us...and the checking!

In anticipation of Brynna's arrival Papa Don raked a huge pile of leaves for Brynna to play in. She was a little tentative at first - watching her Mimi Jo and then me dive in. Eventually she gave it a try. Instead of diving in though she walked over, sat in the leaves and slowly layed back. Eventually she discovered how fun it can be to kick and flail around in the leaves.

Watching her crazy Mimi Jo.

Testing it out with Mommy.

Okay, this if fun!
