...what to do...

So I couldn't sleep tonight...a combination of a headache and my brain wouldn't stop thinking. I hate when that happens. It doesn't happen often to me, I usually can fall asleep pretty much anytime, anywhere. So I finally fell asleep at about 12:30 and i hear a little whimper from my adorable daughter across the room. Of course I wasn't thinking she was so adorable at the time. I was thinking "really Brynlee, now? You wake up now, now that I can finally fall asleep? you would." So I unsuccesfully try to give her a binky to help her fall back asleep. After the fourth time getting out of bed to put it back in her mouth I decided this was not working...So I bit the bullet and got up to make her a bottle. I thought this would for sure do the trick. I mean she's waking up because she's hungry right? wrong. I give her the bottle and wait for her to peacefully fall back asleep. But then I look down and with her milk covered face and her bottle hanging halfway out of her goofy little smile, and I decided she was adorable again. At the same time I realized she wasn't waking up for meal time...she thought it was playtime. So I'm sitting here writing this and she's sitting next to me like she's 14, not 4 months, staring at the screen and then looking up at me like she understands what I'm writing. It's ridiculously cute and I'm annoyed that she can get anything she wants and I'll do it with a huge smile because she's so dang cute! So ANYways I think I've decided I finally need to get her on a "schedule" because her "schedule" for the past two weeks is wake up whenever she feels like it ( meaning wake up at least 15 times during the night) What's up with that anyways? She's been sleeping through the night for at least 2 months! So if anyone has tips...I would greatly appreciate it ;) Now I need to go play with my favorite little girl...even if it is 1 in the morning

p.s. this was written while i'm half asleep and sorry if it doesn't make sense.

Merry Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Merry Late Christmas and Happy New Year from the Rohner home! We had such an amazing Christmas this year. It was Brynlee's first Christmas which is always fun, even though she had no idea it was fun to get all ready for the holidays with her. I feel like everything is so much beter with a baby. We went to a family Christmas party and the kids put on a nativity which was so cute. Brynlee got to be an angel :) On Christmas Eve we went over to my parents house and had a yummy dinner and then went on a hay ride with all the Rohners. Grandma & Grandpa Rohner took all of us to California to go to Sea World (for my first time) and Disneyland it was so fun! It was fun hanging out with everyone. Brynlee loved all the lights at Disneyland at night it was cute to watch her look around at everything. I can't wait to go back when she can actually understand it! Then we came home and Jen & Mitch had come from Utah with Caden! All in all it was pretty much an on going party...
