Here are some not so recent pictures of Brielle. But as you can see she still has the Ripley family chunky rolls. Check out the bottom pic!!!! Can you count how many she has? She is only bigger now. At her 2 month check up she was 14 lbs. 11 oz! She laughed today for the first time, and I mean really laughed. Not some chuckle, but full out rolling laughter! With all her rolls she still can't roll over yet, but she is getting there! Zoe continues to smother her with kisses and is a great big sister and helper to Mom. (Sometimes too much help.) :)

Halloween Pics

Happy Late Halloween! Here are some pictures from our various Halloween excursions. Zoe was a princess for Halloween, and Brielle was just a baby in a cute outfit. Unfortunately all her outfits were/are back home in storage. But we all had fun. Her friend Lindsay in the top left corner is in her mom's official dress from Spain that she wore when she was a little girl. Very cool we all thought. Brielle is being held by Lana and Anna. Zoe is playing with Anna and the hoola hoop and then her and Denim are sharing a some candy in the bottom right pic.

Zoe's First Birthday Party!

Hooray! Zoe turned 3 years old! And to celebrate she had her first official friends birthday party!! Mom had a bunch of stuff planned, but the kids had other ideas. After bracelets were made, the kids just wanted to play with each other. And play they did! Her friends at the party included: Bella, Anna, Ruby, Olivia, Aliana, & Lindsay. Zoe can't wait till next year when she can have another party!

Zoe washing Mom's floor

All you mom's will appreciate this picture. I had JUST mopped the floor not 30 min before this happened. I was feeding Brielle when Zoe brought me a washcloth and said she was going to help Mom wash the floor too. I naievely thought she was going to pretend like she did every other time she helped me clean. OH NO... what you see on the floor is SUNSCREEN! It doesn't come off either!!!! It's oily and waterproof and soooooo much fun for mom to try and clean up. Anways, I laugh at it now, hopefully you will too!

Best Friends!

Zoe LOVES being with Brielle!! Wherever Brielle is, Zoe is not far away. This is one of their favorite things to do together, lay in Mom and Dad's bed for quiet time!

Who is Who???

Can anybody tell me which one is Brielle and which one is Zoe???? I just thought this would be fun to look at. (For your FYI Brielle is on the left and Zoe is on the right!!! )


Zach and Zoe went to a Father/Daughter dance on Valentines Day this year, and she was a dancing machine!!! We had tried to send this to everyone when we took it, but it was too big for email. Anyways, what makes this video funny is everybody was on their way out the door when she heard the song "Fergilicious" come on and she ran back out onto the dance floor. To spot her, she is not only the smallest one out there, dancing with the "big kids" but she is wearing a white button up shirt, a blue skirt, and her hair is in two small ponytails on top of her head. Hopefully your computer has sound b/c that makes this video that much better.
