Your first picture! You were only 8 cells!
Your first concert! I had just found out I was pregnant! I didn't even know there were three of you!

Brooksy, in this picture you were in my tummy at my baby shower! So many people loved you before you were even born! They all came out to celebrate you!

We were so excited to meet you! This is your first picture! My little middle child!
You were such a cute little baby with big feet!
This was the first picture that I took of you! You were always so quiet in the nicu when I was there but the nurses told us that at night you really showed your personality and that you would be our little wild baby!
The first time I held you! You were only a few hours old!

You grew so fast! You had a little catching up to do since you were the smallest baby!
Your first Easter! You had to be under a light for one day and it happened to be on Easter! I don't think you minded it at all! Your little sunglasses were too cute!

This was the first day you all got moved to your big crib so you could snuggle! I think you liked being in the middle!
This is the day Knox got to go home. You held his little hand. It was the sweetest thing I had ever seen! I think you knew your brother was leaving!

Brooks, sweet, serious, hilarious Brooks. You are my first little boy! I still can't believe you are the tiny little four pound baby that we welcomed on April 20th. You have grown up to be such a big boy! You need to slow down because you are getting so big and it's making me sad! I don't think you realize how big you are. We call you a bulldozer because if there is something you want you climb over whatever or whoever is in your way. Sometimes that makes Ava and Knox cry but you quickly give them a kiss which is probably the sweetest thing I have ever seen! It's funny that you are so big because you are a little bit of a chicken! Maybe I should call you cautious instead of a chicken! You get a little scared of the slide, the vacuum cleaner, etc. The other two scream to go higher and faster and you are happiest when you are safe on the ground! ha You are the happiest baby I have ever been around. You always have a smile on your face! It was almost impossible for me to pick out my favorite pictures of you because they were all so cute! I used to say I didn't know what I would do with a boy but now I know exactly what to do! You make my job pretty easy! I've always heard boys love their mommy and it's true! You would be happy to sit in my lap every day all day! Sometimes I think my lap just gives you a better view of the tv though. You still Love to watch tv! You also love music and have some pretty cute dance moves! When people meet you they always say, "Look how serious he is." Once you are comfortable you start smiling and showing off your silly side! You still love to look around and watch people! Brooks we love you so much!
Your dad and I constantly comment on what a good baby you are! We jokingly say you win the "best baby award" every single day! haha Thanks for the laughs and the love Brooksy! Love you!
