California Girl

Britta took her very first airplane ride to California to my cousin Leslie's wedding in Carlsbad! Only the "girls" went and the boys all stayed home and worked! Thanks for working guys! We had a great time with our family and helping with the wedding... Here are some great shots of Britta enjoying her time on the plane and at the wedding!

It was a nice "vacation" for Aunt Kelly because we left little Mari (my toddler niece) at home. We missed her little spunky-ness, but it was definitely easier rushing around without her!
It was so great to travel with a mom and sister who had traveled with little ones before! It was no sweat!
First airplane ride!
After eating on the way up, her ears seemed to do just fine and she was out in minutes! She slept in my arms almost the whole time!
First stop- playtime with cousin Evi... when Britta saw her she was inspired by all of the advnanced playing/rolling/scooting she was doing and Britta rolled from her tummy to her back for the first time! Thanks for the inspiration Evi!
Of course, we had to hit the In 'n Out Burger... not just once by two times in 3 days! WOW!

That burger is bigger than your head Britta!
Thanks for hanging out with me Aunt Terri!
Wedding time! How funny that Britta and Evi are matching! That wasn't even planned! Sorry Britta- I forgot a cute bow for you! I should've been more prepared!
Hi Cousin! Love you! Thanks for playing with me- I was gettting bored of all of the wedding errands!
TOO MUCH WEDDING FUN! This was even before the wedding started! Britta slept from 5:30 until 8:30- perfect timing because she slept through the wedding and a bunch of the reception!
Trying to get Britta to look at the camera is quite a challenge when she finds her feet so intriguing!
Even without the bow, Britta was adorable! Thanks for the cute outfit Ritzmans!
Mommy and baby! I just had the put this picture in because I think her face is so silly!

Rolling Rolling Rolling

Britta rolled over! I caught most of it on video! She worked so hard that she made herself spit up-She must've really been working her abs! Way to go baby! Sorry about your floor Grandma.....

Giggly Girl

After we took Britta's 4 month picture on the couch, I was crumpling up the "4 Month" sign to throw it away and she thought it was totally hilarious and just got the giggles! It was so cute! I didn't catch it on video for very long, but right at the beginning there are some really great Britta giggles!

4 Months Old!

Happy 4 months Baby Britta! You are a blessing and a joy every day!

Happy and Sad

We always know exactly how Britta is feeling by the look on her face.... Within seconds, Britta can go from VERY HAPPY....

...to VERY SAD!!!!

Britta's First Workout (Or a New way to Burp!)

Here is Britta "working out" with Daddy. Note: Daddy was not pulling Britta up- she was honestly doing this on her own. Watch closely when she gets to sit up #10!!

Fingers and Toes

Britta loves to have her hands either IN her mouth or right next to her mouth.... We call her our little chipmunk because it looks like she is chewing on acorns and hiding them in her cheeks!
I love my fingers!
Check out these toes! She was curling them back and forth and couldn't stop staring at them!
WOW- I can't believe I made them move! Amazing!
Stretch them out!

Here I am at my mom's 10 year high school reunion! I chewed on my hands all day....
I took a nap in the shade since I wouldn't go to sleep inside! I didn't want to miss out on all the fun!
Here are 8 of the Bethany Grads and some spouses and kids too!

Where's Britta?

Can you spot her? We'll give you a clue- she's the only one that's not stuffed!
After the "flood" at my parents' house, they gave me back some of my belongings and I just couldn't get rid of these guys! Britta will love them someday!

B-B-B-B-Britta

The "b" sound is Britta's new favorite-She says it all the time- especially when she doesn't want to fall asleep! Last night we woke up to her saying "bah-bah-bah" in the middle of the night... And I caught this on video yesterday!
