Happy Birthday to Brooke

I know it's a day late, but better than never right. Yesterday was our little Brookie's birthday. She turned 4! I can't believe how big she is getting! We had such a great day! She had her favorite breakfast, french toast sticks from BK. Then she had her favorite meal for lunch, macaroni and cheese and green beans. Later we went to a carnival with her cousins and she had a blast. She got to ride on a pony, probably her favorite part of the night, and now she wants to get a pony for Christmas. She got to play a lot of game and go on a train ride. She had a blast. Thanks for the fun Fraughtons! Happy birthday to our princess Brooke!

So She Does Listen

Last Wednesday we went to a wedding reception, on our way home Brooke fell asleep in the car, so I carried her into her room, and laid her down. Of course she woke up and wanted me to read her a story. So I sat down and read her a story gave her a kiss and tucked her in.

The next morning she had to come a get me to show me something in her room. "Mom do you see this? Your shoes are in my room, is that where they belong?" I forgot that I had taken my shoes off when I sat down to read. So of course I answer "no." So then she says, "Mom, you need to pick them up and put them where they belong." It cracks me up because it seems like a word for word conversation that either JD or I would have with her, only reversed.

I guess it is nice to know that she does listen and knows the rules, it's just she still has to learn to follow through and obey! I love her and the funny little things she says. It makes everyday interesting because there is always something new.
