Brooklynn is up to 7 teeth now. 4 on the top and three on the bottom. We think we're starting to see her 4th come in on the bottom and maybe even a 5th one coming in on top. With all these teeth, Brooklynn is really taking well to solid foods. She loves fruits and vegetables. Her favorite fruits are blueberries, strawberries and apples. Her favorite vegetables are broccoli, cauliflower and asparagas. She eats her vegies a lot with pasta or rice. Of course, being her mother's daughter, she won't pass up a carb, so bagels and crackers are always nearby.

We went to the farmer's market with our friends Zach an Jessica. They have 2 dogs, Pancho and Paloma. Pancho came with us to the farmer's Market. Brooklynn was not too happy. I think she heard not to trust a skinny Santa :) She cried at first when Pancho licked her hand in the car seat, but she warmed up to him after walking around the market some. we met Santa at the market, but Brooklynn wasn't happy to see him. Maybe she knew she shouldn't trust a skinny Santa :)

On Monday, we were visited by Brooklynn's Great Granny Helen and Great-Great Aunt Edith. On Tuesday morning, we went out to breakfast with them before they had to head back to Kentucky. Brooklynn is very blessed to have such a large extended family that loves her.
On Thanksgiving day, we traveled down to Kentucky to visit the Clark side of the family where Brooklynn met her Great Grandmother and Great Granddaddy Clark. Brooklynn is their first Great Granddaughter.Nancy and Kimberly made some special Thanksgiving desserts. The arrangement is actually a tribute to a song that select members of the Clark family have sung called "A Turkey Sat on a Backyard Fence". We'll have to post a performance later.
Later that same evening, we went to Cracker Barrel where Brooklynn met her Great Uncle Carl, Great Aunt Sharon and second cousin Leesha. I think the kids were more hungry then that adults were...
Although not widely publicized, Santa made an early stop in Indianapolis and dropped off some presents for the kids. Brooklynn enjoyed the festivities so much, she broke into singing carols...LOL
Tommorrow we head back home. The week has flown by and we wish everyone was closer so we could visit longer and more often.
Next week, Brooklynn will have her 9 month appointment and I'm sure some new pictures too!

I am so blessed with my family. I love my family dearly, but when Brooklynn cries and she only wants me or when Piggy is trying to curl up in the one space I have to myself on the bed and the dishes and laundry start to pile up- not to mention all the feedings and cleanings...I find myself a bit worn out.(Piggy likes to eat grass or small crawling things and then spit it back out, usually on the carpet or my clean laundry-bleck) but then moments like the one pictured above remind me why I love being the momma.
