Christmas 2007

Brayden's first Christmas was wonderful. We got to see all the family this year. Sometimes it's hard for us all to get together at the same time, but this year we all made it. This Christmas we are so thankful for our additions to our family- Brayden and Ashley and we are thankful for all of our families... Brayden is blessed to still have all 4 sets of Great-Grandparents still living. We went to Memphis for Bo's mom's side the weekend before Christmas. While we were there, we went to the Memphis Zoo. It was very windy as you can tell in the pictures. It was a great time to go(no one was there but us and a few others). From there we went to Greenville to have Christmas with Bo's parent's and his dad's family. Brayden got to meet Uncle Jackie(bo's only uncle on his dad's side) for the first time. We came home Christmas Eve and had Christmas with my dad's family that night. We got up Christmas morning to see what Santa had brought and then on to my parents house for breakfast. We had Christmas lunch at my mom's parent's house. It was a busy few days, but well worth it!

7 Months Old! (and catching up)

Brayden is now 7 months old. We can't believe it! We have had a busy last couple of weeks. We have gone to Mobile to visit with my brother, Drew, and his wife, Ashley. We tried to get some Christmas shopping done, but didn't get much accomplished. We had a good time visiting. I also kept a 3 year boy(Luke) for 2 weeks. He was an angel. We had fun playing and watching him ride his scooter. He was a pro! Here is a video of Brayden crawling, mainly for the Grandparents. He wasn't crawling last time Bo's parents saw him.

We now have 2 teeth!! Yes 2! It was about week after the first tooth, the second one came too. Brayden is 7 months old and is crawling everywhere and PULLING UP! I had Brayden in his pack and play while I was getting some things done and I walked into the living room and he was standing up! I couldn't believe it. Bo is so proud of him, but I don't want all this to be happening now. It's too soon! :) I know that it's time for all of this to take place so I have to encourage him. He looks so little standing up and he just started sitting up all by himself.

Brayden loves his bath. He could play for a long time if we would let him.

Christmas is just around the corner and the shopping is almost done. We still have a few more things to get to finish up. I even have presents wrapped and under the tree. I'm bad about waiting until the week of Christmas or Christmas Eve to wrap everything.
