She loves to say HEY! She says it all the time. Brooklyn is probably my child that needs me the least, which is good and bad. I love that she can entertain herself, but I don't want to ignore her just because she doesn't require a lot.
She loves to play and pretend, especially with Brighton. She usually goes along with whatever Brighton has cooked up. She's at that tricky age when she still needs a nap, but won't take one. Brighton had "quiet time" until she was at least 3 1/2; alone in her room listening to tapes and reading books. I'm trying that with Brooklyn, but she will only cooperate for about 30 min. Oh, well. That's enough time for me to do school with Brighton. My next task will be taking away Brooklyn's blanky and thumb. Always so hard!
Brooklyn loves her daddy best of all. She loves to dance and be a princess. She loves to snuggle. We sure love her!

My new friends, Edna and Beatrice. They are no-frills gals, but work hard. So great!! James added the bottom shelf here.
The front room is one big area, there is no dining space in the kitchen. So we're stuck here, eating on top of carpet. I really don't like that, but I have my trusty vacuum always close by.
Up the stairs...
Our upstairs bathroom, or the other bathroom I have to clean. :)
One of the two bedrooms. Most of the toys are here, and the girls sleep on the day/trundle bed. We haven't moved Logan to the crib yet, until all their sleeping schedules are worked out.
Our bedroom. Logan's bedroom. :) We have a pretty large closet, so that's where he is sleeping for now.
So that's it, that's our house! We've already had some adventures in the week and a half we've been here, so I'll keep posting! It was good to see all of your blogs again. Email me if you need my address.
James TWO computers- he managed to get his hands on a Mac. Someone was junking (leaving large things on the side of the road for anyone to have)this computer desk and we grabbed it.
Our downstairs bathroom.
The kitchen. Not too large, but it does have a window! All the cupboards are faced with this blah plastic, so I covered the top cupboards with contact paper. And yes, that is a dishwasher! I named him Mario (thanks Chris!) and you'd think with a name like that he would be really tough and a hard worker, but really he's just a sensitive Italian that you have to pamper or he refuses to work. I'd just do the dishes myself, but that would really hurt his feelings.
I'll have to do the rest of the house in another post, this is going to be really long!
