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!

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.

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.
