Philipe, Brianna and I went out the next day to get all my gear. I never should have gotten rid of all my stuff before but I was almost sure my soccer days were over. I give a whole new meaning to "soccer mom". Of coarse, we had to get Brianna her first soccer ball!
Well, I have another game tomorrow at 9 a.m. I'm hoping Brianna Sleeps good for me tonight. Philipe's working so I'm on my own. Wish me good luck! G'Night!

I think Brianna was more interested in watching Bruizer jump to catch the bubbles.
^Bruizer, catching some air
^Bri, reaching for bubbles
Yup, I'm one lucky lady!!!

I'm not to sure how good I will be at this blogging thing but I have decided to give it a go. Hopefully, family out of town will enjoy keeping up with our latest news, as I will try to post regular updates. I still have to learn how to attach pictures and add links and what not, but some blogging is better than no blogging...
The latest news....
*Brianna is walking! Unbelievable! It's insane how fast time goes by. She still crawling, mainly, but walks a pretty good amount too. She'll take a couple steps, clap a few times, and proceed to walking again. It's so darn cute! Philipe and I are so proud!
*We've switched to cloth diapers, something I never imagined doing. It took a little pursuaing Philipe, but he's on board now. At first, he thought he was going to have to use pins. Then, he saw how cute and easy they are and finally caved in. Plus, I'm the one doing the laundry so what should he care. Why did we decide to go with cloth??? The main reason is I thought it might be healthier for Brianna. After fighting off 3 UTI's, and reading Dr. Punger's ,Permission to Mother, I learned there are many chemicals in disposable diapers that I feel might be contributing to the problem. No doctor has confirmed this. Just my theory! And, of coarse, using cloth diapers is much cheaper and better for the environment. The diapers are really cute too, so that's a plus! While we're only a week into it, there have been no blowouts to report! Yay!
*Still breast feeding and have no intentions of weaning anytime soon. Don't like it? Don't care!
*Philipe got his wisdom teeth pulled. 3 days later he found out he has 2 dry sockets. Poor feller! The doc packed them with gauze dipped in clove....hmmm??? Seems to work!
We have finally recovered from Memorial Day weekend. Saturday started bright and early with a birthday party at the fountains in Jensen Beach. It was followed by celebrating my Dad's birthday and ended with another party. Philipe's parents host an annual "Tacki Tiki" party that is always loads of fun. There's always different themes and this years theme was "a hoe-down at the tacki tiki". It fit us perfectly! Brianna looked so darn cute. As soon as I figure out how to post pictures I'll put one up. I was only planning on staying till 10:00 p.m at the latest, as my bedtime is usually around 9:30. Well, we ended up having such a good time and Brianna was sleeping so nicely in her pack-n-play that we didn't end up leaving until 1 am!!! After Philipe had a few drinks it was impossible to get him to leave! We definately paid for it the next day. Sunday consisted of laying around the house, anticipating Brianna's next nap so we could all snooze together. Thankfully, Brianna took really long naps that day.
And for today...one of my favorite days of the week....Tuesday is Mommy Day! Mommy day was held at Jen and Luke's house. We hung out outside for most of the day. It was a beautiful day too! Brianna got to play with all her little pals and I got to play with mine! That's it for now. I'm off to bed! Good blogging!
