Meet This Momma - Danielle

Meet Danielle.  Some of you might recognize her.  She is originally from the Bud but now lives out in Colorado with her adorable family.  Ahhh, how I would love to go to Colorado someday!!  And if you saw her and her two sisters together you would, no joke, HAVE to do a double take because they could TOTALLY pass as the Kardashians.  Honestly.  They are beauties!!  And her daughter Brinley, melt my heart.  And the fact that they call her Bryn, just like Bethenny Frankel's daughter, and my obsession with Bethenny is kinda ridic.  Ahhh, I just love it!!  Ok, now I sound like a creeper, ha, so on to Danielle....
Name: Danielle (Colbert) Peterson                     
Age: 26
Number of Kids: 1
Names (and meanings): Brinley Grace. I adore her name which came to be from my love of Bryn for a nickname and my need to have a longer name that can be shortened. If you look it up; however, it means burnt meadow…but we pretend it means something more magical than that J
Age of kids: 6 months
Number of desired kids: 3-4. But I love being pregnant, so if I’m not careful I might turn into the next Michelle Duggar J
Natural (epidural?) or C-Section: I had a vaginal delivery with the help of the glorious epidural!
Breast, Formula, or both: Brinley has been breastfeed since day one and I hope to make until at least 10 months before supplementing with formula.
Cloth or Regular: We are regular diaper users
SAHM or Work (doing what?): I’m half and half. I stay home with Brinley during the day and then work nights and weekends at a local Country Club.
Something that people don’t know about you: I have a tattoo J it’s been my little secret for years (with only a few people who actually know about it)
Your biggest parenting secret: Since birth I’ve let Brinley make her own routine. I’m proud to say I have one happy baby who has slept through the night since 6 weeks. It might not work for everyone, but it’s sure worked for us!
Show us your pregnant self before giving birth:
(she went into labor the night this picture was taken, man oh man she looks amazing!!)
A picture of your kids:
A picture of you and your hubby/baby daddy:
The best piece of parenting advice you have ever been given: Enjoy the little things, even if that means the laundry and dishes wait until tomorrow. Babies grow fast and you don’t wanna miss a moment…
So true on enjoying the little things!!  They do grow up WAY to fast.  And I laughed out loud at you being the next Duggar Family.  Too funny!!  I have no idea how in the world that lady does it.  Did you see on TV they went to New York or something?  Oh em gee my fear of losing people in big crowds, I could barely get through the commercial without being like, 'They are going to lose someone, I just know it!'  Ha.  Dork.  Thanks again Danielle, and enjoy that cutie pautie (and Colorado, jealous!!)

Thanks guys!

Thanks for doing this Cassie, so fun! I might have to steal the idea when Baby #2 arrives (and no...I'm not pregnant yet :) )

You should link to each mom's blog so that we can follow!

Kim Luke said...

Wow, you definitely looked great at the end. I wish I would have known your secret!!!

I want your secret about having the baby make their own schedule. I would loooove for Layla to have her own schedule and sleep through the night once shes here. Landon didn't sleep through the night until he was over a year old!!!

christine - i have linked it up it's just not in a different color so it's hard to see. usually in the first or second sentence if you move your cursor over to find it. sorry, i should make it stand out a little better.
