Sweet Little Brynlee Louise!

I love hanging out at the hospital with Brynlee. She pretends to be asleep every time I go in to visit, but I always catch her opening her eyes just when I'm about to leave. Brynlee raised her eye brows when I told her she's as beautiful as her mother, and she cringed when I told her to  watch out for her dad - his tickles are relentless - just ask her sister Hannah!  Brynlee is growing like crazy!  

Tonights weigh in has her at 2 lbs 12.9 oz!  Way to go Brynlee!
I am having a blast here in Indiana with Keith and Lindsay, and their two little girls. Hannah and I read books all day long,  sing songs, learn new animal sounds, and eat a lot. All things I'm used too, expect for that reading part.

Tatems concert

7 months old today!

Aunt Lindsay put Tatems tuft of hair in a pony tail the other day and I got the biggest kick out of it! It makes her look so grown up.

Tatem tried her first Biter Biscuit and Sweet Potatoes.  
She has an obvious love for both of them!
Yesterday at church during Relief Society she crawled over to some other lady, started digging through her purse, then pulled herself up to standing at her chair.  I was so surprised!  She's gotten up on all fours but has never actually raised her top half.  I wanted to start clapping for her  but refrained when I was hit with the foul air coming from Tatems direction.  I guess standing up by herself made her crap her pants.  Some things still scare me too Little T!

Cute little Cousins

This might come as a surprise to you, but Tatem and I are on another vacation!
We are visiting Uncle Keith, Aunt Lindsay, cousin Hannah, and new baby Brynlee in Indiana. Tatem feels it's her job to help Hannah get use to the idea of having a little sister around i.e. invading personal space, being a copy cat, following her where ever she goes, and sharing books which should eventually lead to sharing shoes and clothes! That's what sisters do! 

Tatem loves her cousin Hannah!

Baby Brynlee Bangart is here!

My sister LINDSAY had her sweet baby girl, BRYNLEE LOUISE BANGART, on November 4th at 6:41 am. Brynlee was born at 28 weeks gestation and is trying to outweigh all the other preemies by weighing a whopping 2 pounds 6.6 ounces. She is in the NICU and all her nurses continuously comment on how beautiful she is! Uh hello...have you seen her mother? Of course she is beautiful! Brynlee is such a strong fighter. Uh hello...have you met her action hero father? Seriously, this girl has beauty, strength, faith and prayers on her side. She's one lucky little two pound turkey!I wanted to shed a little light on how much of a miracle this is. Lindsay was born with a heart defect that resulted in 4 open heart surgeries throughout her life. Her first surgery at 3 months old, and her last surgery was performed in November 2006 where the doctors switched the major vessels in her heart from one side to the other. Because "the switch" is a new procedure in adults there are no studies showing the likelihood of this type of heart patience going on to have children. No delivery doctor has ever had a patient like Lindsay before. Well, lets be honest, is there anyone like Lindsay? Really? Lindsay's own life is a miracle and now she has brought life into this world by way of another miracle. Little Brynlee is a fighter! Perhaps in the lightweight division, but still a fighter! It leads me to believe that Brynne's purpose here is a big one, just as Lindsay's is.  Lindsay is a mother!  A mother of three of her own beautiful miracles:  Hannah, Isaac, and Brynlee.  

Congrats Keith and Lindsay!
