I just wanted to post this website of Reed Thompson. This is a guy who played baseball with Bo for 2 years in Jr. College (Mississippi Delta Community College) and also a couple of summers. Some of you may know him or his family. He was in a really bad car accident in Dallas, TX a couple of weeks ago and just woke up on Friday. Praise God! Reed's dad keeps the website updated regularly. I wish that I had posted this sooner, but it's better now than never. He still has a long road ahead of him. Please pray for Reed and his family.

Mowing the Grass

Brayden has a bubble mower and loves it! He LOVES to push this all over the back yard. While it's being pushed, it blows bubbles and Brayden loves to watches them float off. He tries to catch them but he can't figure out why he can't grab them....(they pop when he touches them) It's the funniest thing to watch him. This day, we were also playing in the octpus sprinkler, but I didn't get any pics of it because I had to be right there with Brayden getting wet! Hopefully, he will be brave next time.

My 1 year Stats

Brayden's Dr. appt. went really well this week.

Brayden's Stats
22 lbs 15 oz (45% for age and weight)
33 inches (off the charts for age and height)

I am now adjusting to swapping from bottle to cup and doing really well, so far. I have 7 teeth now. I am eating table food more and more and loving it! I jabber all the time. Mommy and Daddy don't understand what I'm saying , but they will soon!

A Grand Slam Birthday!

Here are just a few pics from Brayden's party last Sunday.

Happy 1st Birthday!

Brayden turned ONE yesterday! Bo and I (and Brayden)have made it through the first year of parenthood and it has been wonderful!! Brayden had a baseball themed party and family and friends were invited. Brayden had so much fun playing with is little friends. I actually did not take the first picture of anything! I know, I'm a bad mom, but my father in law takes pictures anyway and I asked him if he would be the photographer for the party. So, he is going to send me the pics and I will post them soon! We enjoyed visting with everyone and Brayden had a wonderful time! Brayden got lots of toys and clothes. Bo's favorite was the Cubs jersey. Bo is a big Cubs fan(as you could tell by our dog's name, Wrigley) and Brayden got a jersey of his own! It was so cute on him and that is what he ended up wearing for the party, it really fit the theme perfectly though. Pictures will be coming soon!

This is a picture of the day Brayden was born and then one from today

A little bit about Brayden

Brayden Hughes Edmiston, the love of our life, came into this world on Friday, May 18, 2007. Sunday, he will turn a year old. This year has flown by and Bo and I have been so blessed. I thank God everyday for this little boy. I have also been blessed to get to stay at home with him. It's amazing watching everything go on in his life so far, from holding his head up, to rolling over, to sitting up, to getting his first tooth, to saying his first word, to crawling, to standing up, and now to walking everywhere. Oh, the list just keeps going! This child has taught me so much in this one year- I can't imagine how much better it will get as the years go by.

Time flies!

This is a picture of me with Brayden one year ago today. This was the week Brayden was born. This was one of the last pictures taken of me before Brayden came into this world. My time goes by fast! I remember taking this picture like it was yesterday. Brayden's birthday is Sunday, so there may be random posts this week about him. :)

Mother's Day

This was my first Mother's Day! It was a beautiful day. We spent the afternoon at my parents house to celebrate Drew's birthday and Mother's Day. Drew's birthday was last Thursday, and he was actually born on Mother's Day. Drew and Ashley could not believe how good Brayden was getting around. We had a good visit with them. Drew actually got to keep Brayden by himself on Saturday for a little bit. They are coming back next weekend for Brayden's birthday. I hope all of you Moms out there had a wonderful Mother's Day too!!

Long time no blog

It's been about 2 weeks again since our last post. There are no excuses. Brayden is almost a year old and has not been sick at all, except for teething side effects(a little fever and runny nose). We had to go to the Dr. last weekend because a place on Brayden's face was getting bigger and bigger. He was diagnosed with cellulitus which is an infection. He has acted like nothing has been wrong with him and no fever, just swollen lymph nodes behind his ears. Today, we decided to carry him back to the Dr. and it is healing! Praise the Lord. We have been worried all week, since we have not seen a big difference, but things are healing up just fine. :)Here are a few pics of Brayden playing over the last couple of weeks... you can see his sore of his face.... it really looks a lot better now.
