{17 Months}

Life with Brynn lately can be summed up in the lyrics to Walk of the Earth's song "Rule the World":

I say yeah yeah yeah, they say no no no
They say slow slow slow, I say go go go
They say no way, oh, I say I'll rule the world 
I say I rule the world

In every sense she has become a picture perfect precocious toddler. She is stubborn, helpful, funny, giggly, smart and silly. She climbs, runs, yells, talks, jumps, wiggles, screams and makes faces. When we heard WOTE's new song we both burst out laughing because of how perfectly it fit Brynn. Here's to sticky fingers, climbing on the table, and a perfectly combined outfit of pyjamas, helmet and rubber boots!

The fundamental job of a toddler is to rule the universe.- Lawrence Kutner

{Dad & Daughter Time} Camping at Red Pine Lake

In a repeat of last year, James took Brynn camping at Red Pine Lake with our friends Dan and Lisa and another couple and their son. It was a last minute decision and I had to work, so the weekend turned out to be some quality daddy/daughter time. It did make me happy to hear she went around saying, "Mom, mom, mom" though ;)! Here are some pictures from their weekend together.

James was so busy running after this precocious kid all weekend that he didn't take pictures of anyone else or the scenery! It warms my heart to know that I have a husband who is such a great dad that not only is he able, but is also willing to take our daughter on a trip to the backwoods all by his lonesome. Here's to many more daddy/daughter weekends!
