Christmas 2010

We had such an amazing Christmas this year! We were able to celebrate Brayden's first Christmas with so much family! On Christmas Eve, we celebrated with Jason's family. On Christmas day, after opening presents from Santa, we headed over to my sister's house for a great Christmas lunch! Needless to say, Brayden and Ashlyn got plenty of toys this year! Brayden also got his first two teeth for Christmas so he was a bit cranky, but we made it through the day:)

Brayden - 7 Months

7 months have just flown by! Brayden is becoming a lot more active these days! If you leave the room for one minute, he might be on the other side of the room when you get back! He isn't crawling yet, but he sure knows how to get around:) Brayden continues to be such a happy little baby! He just loves his sister so much! If he gets a little cranky, all I have to do is get Ashlyn to come in the room and he lights up! I can't wait to see them grow together! It just melts my heart to see them laughing with each other! Here's what Brayden is doing now....

  • very quick roller now!
  • sits all by himself
  • still sleeps pretty much the same as last month
  • eats all kinds of baby food now (apples, bananas, and green beans seem to be his favorite)
  • loves to play with, chew on, and shake all his toys
  • loves to flip over while I'm trying to change him....at least he's not screaming or crying:)
  • says, "dah" and "bah"

Brayden's First Trip to the Zoo

One of our Family Advent Calendar Activities was "Go the the Zoo!" It happened to be perfect December weather in Houston that day for an outdoor activity. This was Brayden's first trip to the zoo. We didn't know if he would even understand what we were doing, but he was looking around quite a bit. We happened to be there the weekend they opened the new African exhibit for members only to preview, so we got to go in! It was very exciting getting to be some of the first to preview the area!
