Chatting with Britta

Britta loves to talk already (just like her mom and dad!) Just wait until she actually has words to say!

Daddy's Day

A Post from Britta:

"I LOVE DADDY!" I even like to shout it out like in this picture...
I especially love when my daddy gives me kisses....
...Or when he makes me laugh...
...Everyone thinks that we look just alike...
YAY for Daddy time!

Hands Free!

So I've been trying to use the Baby Bjorn carrier around the house and she was HATING being in it. So I was about to give up when I realized that maybe she could hold her head up enough to face OUT instead of facing towards me. She really got used to it fast and even started to enjoy it! It's really nice to be "Hands Free" sometimes! We even did the laundry together!

Tummy Time!

Every day Britta has"Tummy Time" to strengthen her neck and tummy muscles. Yesterday she had Tummy Time in the hallway because I needed 10 minutes to dry my hair. She actually had fun this time (She usually hates it!). She really liks "reading" her Noah's Ark book.

Wedding Mania!

Britta is a wedding crasher! Ben and I have been to three weddings in the last three weekends and Britta has been to two of them with us. How many has she made it THROUGH? NONE! She doesn't seem to like the actual ceremony as much as we do! She's been a great guest at the receptions though. Maybe she just goes the food? :)

Mari loves her little cousin "Bittah- Bittah!" (As she affectionately calls Britta!) Katie and Britta and Cousin Amy and Evangeline (Evie)
Mari loves the babies!

Silly girls! Check out Britta's face! I think she wants to Cheerios too! (I can't figure out how to rotate on this blog!)
Great Grandpa Van Buren- Britta loves her grandparents and great grandparents!

New Mama Class

Britta and I are taking a "New Mama Class" at Amma Maternity in Edina and we love it! It's a great excuse to get out of the house and hang out with other new mommies. What a great way to start motherhood!! Look at all the cute little babies! Where's Britta?

Hidden Talents

We are discovering that Britta has all sorts of new talents... She loves to hold her head up! She is so strong!

And she really loves to blow bubbles! This one lasted for a long time! It was quite impressive....

Remember this picture? Well- check out Britta's profile! Its amazing how it really DOES LOOK LIKE HER inside of me! Isn't techonology cool?

Isn't it amazing how much her profile also looks her her daddy? Isn't God even more amazing than technology? He is so creative in making our children look like US!
