Yesterday, Brayden was 5 months old. We can't believe that time goes by so fast now! Brayden is so much fun at this age. He notices alot more now. He can hold his arms out for us, he is rolling over everywhere, scoots backwards, and has found his feet-he loves to put them in his mouth. His smile just melts us and we love to hear him laugh. The funniest thing to him is when Wrigley(our dog) licks his feet-he will cackle so hard. Here are a couple of pictures from yesterday.

Even though State lost to Tennessee, Brayden went to his first MSU football game. He was wonderful! He was entertained by all the people there. He even took a couple of naps while everyone was screaming. He was worn out by the time we got home though. We were able to spend some time with our friends Leigha and Jason and we also ran into a friend of mine that I had not seen in a few years, Kristy and her husband Michael. It was good to visit with everyone.

Brayden is now rolling all over the place! He rolls around his bed. I will lay him down for a nap and he will be at the opposite end of the bed when I go to get him. He rolls off of his blanket on the floor. The other day, Brayden was on his blanket in the living room, I went into the kitchen to get something and came right back and Brayden was heading for the hall way. I guess it's time to baby proof the house now, because crawling will be next!
Last weekend was the Bollinger family reunion. This will be Bo's mom's side of the family. We went for lunch on Sunday. It was good to see everybody. Some of them had not gotten to see Brayden before today. All 3 of the children were there. Bo has an uncle that lives in South Dakota, so it's hard for him to get down here often. Almost all of the grandchildren and their spouses made it also. Four out of six Great-Granchildren were there. I know Bo's grandparents were glad to have all of us there with them.

I can't believe it's been 4 years, but they have been the best 4 years of my life. Four years ago, I married my best friend. We have gotten to travel together and now we have a wonderful son together. I hope to have many more wonderful years together. I love Bo with all my heart and I thank God for placing him in my life. This pic is one of us leaving the church the day of the wedding and the other one is when we lived in New York. Bo and I went to a steak house here and of course we had the baby with us, but we wouldn't have it any other way.
My brother, Drew got married this past weekend to Ashley Studdard. They are living in Loxley, AL now. Drew is employed with Software Technology in Mobile and Ashley is employed with an interior design firm in Pensacola. Drew and Ashley had been dating for 8 years! Crazy, huh? It's been a long time and it's good to say now that she is officially part of our family. Our families have known each other for years. Ashley's brother, Jerry, and I graduated together and were close growing up. So, we are glad we are family now. They grew up together in the same church which makes it even more special. We had the rehearsal dinner Friday night at J Broussard's. The food was wonderful. My Aunt Resa did the decorating. It was beautiful considering the space we had to work with. The Bridesmaid's luncheon was also there, but on Saturday. The wedding was at 6:00 Saturday Night. It was beautiful and Ashley looked beautiful also. Ashley had 9 bridesmaids and Drew had 10 groomsmen. Bo and I were both in the wedding. My dad was the best man. Brayden wasn't in it, but he got to enjoy all the fun thanks to Mary Martha. She was our Nanny for the day and night. We got to see lots of family and some of them got to see Brayden for the first time. The reception was at the Country Club, where the band and the good food was! Brayden, by the way, could not have been any better. He held up for everything without fussing a whole lot and even slept thru the band playing for a little bit. We figured he would get really tired, but he didn't. They pulled out in a limo at about 9:30 and headed to Mobile to catch their fight to Antigua. I know they are having a good time now. Here are a few pics from the weekend. I left my camera in the car during the rehearsal dinner AND the reception, so I will have to post pics from it later.
