Happy Birthday Brayden!!!

I can't believe my little Bubba Bear is one! I have had bittersweet feelings all day! I'm so happy he is becoming a big boy and doing so many things, but I miss my baby! It has been such a blessing being the mother of a little boy! I don't think I could have imagine a more perfect little man to be part of our family! He is very laid back, loves his big sissy, and has the sweetest little personality! God really did have perfect plan for us by adding a little boy to our family! Ashlyn loves being Brayden's big sister so much! I love hearing them laugh and play together...so sweet! I can't wait to see what the next year brings! Brayden, we love you so much! I can't imagine life without you!
Happy 1st Birthday Brayden!!!

Brayden - 11/12 months

First of all....Happy Birthday Brayden!!!

I do realize that I totally missed posting a blog for Brayden's 11th month....but to be honest, he didn't really do too many different things that month. He did say his first word..."Ball"!

For Brayden's 12 month post....
We celebrated Brayden's first Easter this month! He loved playing with all the plastic eggs:) We also took a trip to Dallas to visit Auntie Rachie.....Brayden did not nap well the whole trip! I guess he likes his own bed:) It was nice to get away from the usual though.

This is what he's doing now....

  • standing alone every now and then
  • taking a few steps in between to close objects (jason and me:))
  • eating a lot of different table foods....some favorites are: whole wheat Ritz crackers, grilled cheese, grapes
  • saying several words....ball, hi, bye, more, mama, dada, Brayden
  • pointing at himself and other things
  • waiving
  • his 4th and 5th teeth are coming in
  • mimicking lots of sounds....coughs, sneezes, squeals
  • Drinks water really well from his straw cup
And here are a few pics...

Man, this year flew by fast!!!
