In May we got to take a fun trip out to see my family in Reno, we went over to Tahoe and it is so beautiful up there! Brayden got to play with his cousin that he doesn't get to see very often so he loved it! Corvin is a few years older but you would never know they play so well together! We will miss Corvin and Marisa a ton when they move back to Argentina in Novemeber and can't stand the thought of them being so far away :( My mom and dad gave Brayden his birthday presents when we went down there and he loves all the fun new toys !
A little catch up on some pics !!! Brayden and Chad had birthdays in April ( ya i know it is almost November) and Brayden and his cousin Riley Share a birthday! So fun for them even though they are 10 years apart!
So I am well aware I have been a blogging slacker lately, but here I am back with no pics yet. A lot has been going on since I have last posted! Brayden turned two!!! We had a Cars themed party for him and he just LOVED it!!!! He is so cute and just kept saying lighting McQueen the whole time. He got a McQueen trike and clothes and hotwheels, pretty typical for a two year old. Chad also turned 29 in May and had a great birthday. He got a dewalt saw so that maybe he would finish a project or two around the house! ( hint hint..)
And as many of you may have heard ... BABY #2!!!! on his/her way in November! I will have a scheduled c section on November 6th!!! We are so excited and I will post pics soon of Brayden!
Meet the newest addition to our family, Cash Walker. He weighs in at a whopping 6 lbs now, black fur, the markings of a rotwieler ( i cant spell ) and chews on EVERYTHING!! He is so much fun but I forgot what I was getting myself into when we got him. He had a accident ( or two as you can tell) but is getting a lot better. Him and I dont get along well so he is now solely Chads dog. He doesnt like me for some reason and runs from me when called and bites me, and no he has not bit the baby yet and never will or he is for sale. Molly is loving him although she was really unsure for the first week but now they are two peas in a pod. We are going to have to tie him up in the back yard since he spreads havoc in the neighbors yards, so sad for him. We love him though and wouldnt really ever sell him I guess, ( I would chad wont). A little back round on how we got the dog... my mother in laws dog had puppies one day and he was the last one born about 8 hrs after the last one, he was to cute to pass up and I ( yes I ) begged to bring him home so here he is!
Ok so I know I am a little slow, but look who turned one!! Brayden had his first birthday and it was so much fun! We had the whole family over and he got really great toys and clothes. We got him a fire truck car that he LOVES and could play in all day! We also celebrated Chads 28th birthday, ( yeah he is old ) and he got an awesome lawn mower that he has been eying for a while. He loves to mow the lawn ( for real he does) and be outside. There were a lot of birthdays around that time and Brayden shares a birthday with his cousin Riley who turned 11 the same day! Keith ( Chads Dad ) turned I dont know how old but his birthday is the day after Chads, so we had one big birthday party and BBQ with the fam.
Chad hates cake so I made his favorite peanut butter bars and made him blow out candles!
I think this one is cute cause it looks like he is holding up one finger!
Seriously... To make a long story short, I now have a computer!!! So I know this is ancient history but I am going to start where I left off and slowly make my way to the present! This was our Easter and Braydens First Easter, I made him a cute basket and was shocked he actually went out and found it. ( it wasn't that hidden)
March 4th- My little boy isn't so little anymore... sad. While my wonderful mother ( who let me sleep in) was here he started crawling !! The back round on the crawling is he scoots really well and walks along things he has even taken a few steps on his own, but no crawling. He kinda goes side ways when he crawls but is really cute, he is still walking and holding on to anything to get somewhere new. He will be walking before long I am afraid. He has 8 teeth and looks like a little boy now ( still the spitting image of his father) and I love him SO SO much!
February 13th- So maybe i should have let him but Little B made his way over to the stairs and BAM!!! he was going up them! It was so cute i couldnt stop him and sat right behimd him the whole time. He made it all the way to the top! What a man!!
February 5th- Well we go to the doctor for some rountine shots and then... His little thing wasnt done exactlly right so they poked and prodded, and he screamed and screamed. Needless to say giving him a bath is heartbreaking, but he is doing much better! A little side note he gained 2 lbs so his final weigh in is 21.8 lbs and 28.5 inches long. He is in the 50-75 th% for both, so not my little chunky monkey like it thought!
January 26th- Brayden started using his walker. He loves to stand and I think he will just go from scooting around to walking!
January 18th- Braydens front teeth are ALL the way in and I couldn't be happier! No more diarrhea and tons and tons of drool. It makes him look like a little boy now and that makes me so sad he isnt going to be my baby for long.
