The Giants

Here is Bo and Brayden watching NY Giant's football. I do have to say that I'm in there watching too, when they are on! We all put on our Giant's gear when it's game day! I don't have the jersey, but I have a t-shirt.

Brayden's Animal Sounds

I got a video of Brayden making his animal sounds the other night. he was doing them loud for me. He normally does them really soft the where you can barely hear him. So, here they are loud.

18 Months Old

Brayden is now 18 months old! Time flies!! He is learning more and more everyday! He is talking more and more and is starting to put words together now such as "bye bye mama" and same for daddy. He tries to repeat words when we ask him to. We haven't found a food he doesn't like. He can tell you what all the farm animals say now. We are still working on him saying his name. He won't even try to say it. He loves watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Elmo, and Barney. He knows when we get to my parents' house and my grandparents' house. He will start saying their names. We went to the Dr. today for shots and stats. Weight: 26 lbs...50% Height: 34 1/4 inches....95% Head: 18 1/2.... 25%. He's tall and skinny. I have attatched a picture from a year ago and today. It shows just how much he's changed!

It's Christmas Time at The Edmiston's

I have had my tree up for a little over a week now. We had a time with Brayden the first couple of days it was up. I put the lights and ornaments on the tree while he was asleep and when he woke up he saw it. He starts pointing and saying "Ball....Ball.....Ball" , so I thought to myself what have I done. He tried taking the "balls" off the tree and got a few spankings, but now we doesn't touch it. He still points at the "balls", but only looks! He has a tree in his room too with all of Bo's baseball ornaments and a few my mom had given him. I thought I had made another mistake by putting that one in his room, really, with all the BALLS. The first day it was up, he would bring me the "balls", but he has now left it alone too. In the pictures, his tree looks like a Charlie Brown tree, but I have not fixed it since he has stopped touching it. Brayden gets so excited when we turn his tree on in the mornings. I am through with the inside. We will probably decorate the outside this weekend, since Bo will be going back to work the day after Thanksgiving.

Feeding the Ducks

Bo and Brayden went to feed the ducks at the lake last week. Brayden didn't like being by the aggressive ducks. Bo could not put him down. They went to another spot and the ducks were much friendlier and Brayden had fun feeding them.

Our Little Monkey

Brayden was going to be a lion for Halloween, but he wanted to be a monkey instead. He can actually do the monkey sound and action better than the lion, that's why he was a monkey. He had fun Halloween. Bo had to work, so we just went to family before he had to leave. Brayden and I met up with Gavin and Brantley for supper. Brantley was a fireman and I don't really know what Gavin was. Brayden didn't like him too much at first.

Fall Pictures

We went to Greenville a couple of weeks ago and spent some time wtih Bo's family. We had not seen them in a while, so it was good to visit with everyone. These pictures were taken while we were there.

Pumpkin Patch

A couple of Saturdays ago, my church went to the pumpkin patch. We had so much fun. Christie, Shawn, Gavin, and Brantley went with us. The kids loved playing in the corn and in the cotton! We also went on a hay ride and roasted hot dogs and marshmellows! The pictures I got aren't really that good because it was dark and I really couldn't tell if I was focusing right or what I was taking a picture of. Here are a few. We'll have to go back in the daylight!

Rani's visit to Columbus

My good friend Mary Martha finally came to Columbus with her new little one, Rani. She's 10 weeks now. She's growing, but still so little, :) I guess compared to Brayden. They stopped by the house for a little bit. We had fun palying with her. Brayden kept saying "baby" , so he is realizing he needs to be gentle around her. We missed Laura and Joshua! Hopefully, we can see you in January when ya'll come back.

Brayden's New Bed

A few weeks ago, we moved Brayden's baby bed out of his room and put a twin bed up. He hasn't been using his baby bed for several months now, so we thought a twin bed would be better for his room. We didn't redo anything except the quilt. His room was ONLY baseball, now it's ALL sports. He lays on his pillow while trying to go to sleep and all he says is "ball, ball". That's all he wants to do these days is play with balls!

Papa, RuRu, and Uncle Josh,
I can't wait to see ya'll next weekend! Tell Mamaw and Granddaddy I can't wait to see them too! :) It's been a while since we've seen all of you. I'm learning so much everyday! I love you!

Successful Garage Sale!

Last weekend, my cousin and I had a garage sale and so did ALOT of other people around town. It was a success! I was so exhuasted afterwards though, it will be a LONG time before I have another! I made $130, which I thought was pretty good. I got rid of some junk and made a little extra money! It's lots of work, for those of you who have not ever had one. I wasn't very organized at first, but you learn as you go. Bo had to work, so he missed all the fun and Brayden stayed inside at my aunt's and played with his cousins, Gavin and Brantley.


Our friends, Leigha and Jason, came and stayed with us a few weeks ago while they were here for the State game. Brayden and I met them at Harveys for an early supper. Brayden loves these two! They are also the ones that kept Brayden while we had our anniversary dinner in Memphis.

Basketball player

I guess we have a basketball player now! Here's a video of Brayden shooting the basketball. He could play it all day.

Catching up

A few pics over the last couple of weeks! We have been busy! Brayden has started Mother's Day Out at First Baptist. He loves it and I'm still trying to adjust to it. I have started helping my mom out some at the cleaners again. It's just different not having him around all the time. I miss the little monkey, but I am enjoying my time too. Bo and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary this past weekend. We went to Memphis to visit with Bo's grandfather and while we were there, we stayed with our friends Leigha and Jason. They kept Brayden Friday night while we went to Texas de Brazil, which was wonderful!!

Brayden's new face.
Brayden and his boots(he LOVES them)... when we get home he will go and put his boots on just about every afternoon!

Panama City Trip

So, a couple of weeks ago we went to Panama City Beach for a huge softball tournament. We had lots of free time and Brayden LOVED the beach. We were there while Tropical Storm Hannah hit the east coast. We were not affected by it. The weather couldn't have been any nicer. Bo went to play with a different team from last year. They didn't do so well, but they had fun.

Going through Loxley

On our way to Panama City Beach last weekend, we stop and spent the night with Drew and Ashley. It was a short trip. We went to the new Bass Pro Shop and Brayden had lots of fun there. He liked the fish, tents and boats. he liked getting in the boats and "driving" them. When Drew got home form work he, Bo and Brayden played a little basketball. As you can see in the pics Brayden was having fun with the boys!

Playing at the park

Denise and her little boy-Tyler went to lunch with me and Brayden and then we went to Lee Park to play. It was a hot day so we didn't stay out there too long.

Visiting little Rani

A couple of weeks ago, Bo, Brayden and I went to Vaiden to visit ours friends Mary Martha, Don and Rani. This was Bo and Brayden's first time to meet Rani. We got to visit for a few hours and then had to make our way home.
Bo got a nap in

Brayden didn't know what to think about me holding a little baby

Brayden has mastered climbing the steps and sliding down by HIMSELF. We have been trying to teach him how to climb up the little steps, sit and then slide. He always wanted to climb UP the slide, but it never worked and he would get so frustrated. He was so proud of himself and would do it over and over.


Brayden loves corn on the cob!

Atlanta trip

Our trip to Atlanta was quite eventful. We stayed in a really nice hotel-thanks to Bo's friend, Austin. He works at the Embassy Suites in Nashville, so he was able to get a really good deal on the rooms. We left early Tueasday morning heading for Atlanta. Brayden was good for the most part traveling for 4 hours. We also left with it pouring down raining here and we took the rain with us. We were going to the Braves vs. Cubs game on Tuesday and Wednesday. We got on the Marta Tuesday afternoon since it was next door to the hotel, got off at Underground Atlanta and took the shuttle ot the stadium.... as soon as we pull up to the stadium they announce that the game has been cancelled. NOTE: We have Brayden with us and it was his supper time by then and he was tired of eating goldfish and fruitloops and sitting still. It was not a fun trip back on the shuttle and Marta! So, on Wednesday there is a double header- 1:00pm and 7:00pm. I'm thinking that there is no way Brayden can sit and be GOOD through 2 ballgames. I have family that lives near by in Alpharetta, so I had called my aunt the day before and asked if we could come visit. Aunt Lynn came and picked me and Brayden up from the hotel for the afternoon while Bo and Austin went to the 1st game. We got to eat at the Cheesecake Factory for lunch, then we picked cousin Taylor up from school and went to back to Aunt Lynn's to play for a little while. This was Brayden's first time meeting Taylor(she is his 3rd cousin). They had fun playing together. Brayden and I met Bo and Austin at the game at 7:00. I had to ride the Marta alone with Brayden and Bo met us at Underground to ride the shuttle. Brayden was not a happy camper at the ballgame. He's still to young for a 3 hour professional ballgame. I forgot my camera, I guess because I was nervous about riding the Marta alone and making sure I had everything for Brayden. Austin did get some pictures, so I will have to post the game pictures later. I did manage to get pictures of Taylor and Brayden playing.

15 Months

Today, Brayden is 15 months old and growing fast!

He is a little chatter box and not shy(most of the time). He is doing this squealing thing now too. Hopefully, it will go away when he can talk more. His favorite word is "that". Other words are "gee" for Wrigley(our dog), "baseball"(instead of just ball) "thank you"(of course it's not that clear, but we understand it). He is eating table food really well, there's NOT much that he doesn't like. He loves raviolli, potatoes, rice, ham, tomatoes, cheese, cheese puffs, goldfish, fuit loops and animal crackers-just to name a few. He is a little monkey...loves to climb on everything! His favorite toy is a ball, it doesn't matter what kind or how big-he can spot one a mile away. We have to avoid walking by them in Walmart! =) He loves to ride the 4-wheeler and the golf cart. Most of the time he falls asleep on them- i guess because he has to be still! He's an active little one! We are still enjoying every minute of it!

We're Back!

This summer has been busy for us, especially over the last month.

  • We went to Loxley,AL and moved Drew and Ashley into their new house in June.
  • The next week we went to Vaiden, MS to help our good friends Mary Martha and Don move into their new house. Don is now the Associate/Youth pastor at Vaiden Baptist Church. Bo and I went to his ordination service last Sunday in Louisville. They are also about to have their first child/daughter. Rani is due August 22, but she may come anyday now.
  • Laura(MM's sister) and little Joshua came to MS all the way from NM for a visit, so we got to meet and play with him for the first time. He's 3 months old and a spitting image of his daddy right now.
  • I have gotten together with friends from college a couple of times. We are trying to get together once a month. It's been fun catching up with everyone. Last month, we met at Mi Toro's and gave Mary Martha and suprise baby shower.
  • Bo has been playing softball on the weekends he's off, which is only 2 each month.
  • Last week, we went to Pope, MS to visit with some of Bo's family. We took one of the 3 girls to Memphis with us to visit with Papaw and Nanny(bo's mom's parents). After our visit, we went to Chuck E. Cheese's to eat and let the kids play for a little while, before we made our trip back home. Brayden and Maggie had lots of fun.
  • I celebrated my 27th birthday in June.
  • Bo celebrated his 27th birthday last Friday (1st).
  • School has started back and we kept Rowe for a couple of days and on Wednesdays, Gavin comes over after school since it's an early day.
  • Tuesday, we are heading to Atlanta to watch the Cubs vs. Braves (bo's birthday present from me and Brayden and we are taking Brayden along too) =)

Congratulation's to....

Kevin Long and Pam-they are now engaged! No date has been set yet, but they are working on it.

Pictures to come soon!

Ride that Horsey!

So we just thought Brayden was ready for bed the other night. As you can see on the clock it says 10:30....way past his bed time. He had taken a late nap and we thought he would be tired by then. Usually after his bath he is ready to go to sleep, but not this night!

4th of July

We went to Pickensville Campground for the 4th to visit with family. We had lots of fun playing and riding the boat and, of course, we ate lots of good food!

This is Brayden playing football with the other boys.... he wanted to be right in the middle of them.

This is Brantley and Brayden riding in the wagon around the campground.

1st Haircut

I know that Brayden doesn't have THAT much hair to be cutting on, but the back was looking a little shaggy. Everytime he would walk or run, the back would flow in the wind. It just needed a little shaping up. So yesterday, we went and got his first haircut. He did so good.
