6 Month Pictures

I decided to take both of the kids for Brady's 6 month pictures. We got some really cute ones of both of them. They both were great and it went really smooth this time. Thank goodness!

Football with Dad

Here is Brady helping Daddy play football against Uncle Jim. He's trying to start him out early! Of course, all Brady really wanted to do was chew on a toy.

Yummy Food

Brady looked like such a big boy sitting up at the counter at Auntie Monica's house. I set down his food just for a second to take a picture and he grabbed it. I guess he didn't want to wait. Luckily, it didn't make too big of a mess.

Grammy, Auntie, and Jazzie Visit

We had Grammy, Auntie Cheri, and Jazzie come visit us last weekend. The kids were so excited! It was so good to see them. Both of the kids loved playing with Jazzie. Guess we need to start thinking about getting another dog sometime.

Train Park

We took a trip over the the train park last weekend since it was open. Grammy and Auntie came too. So did Uncle Jim, Auntie Monica and the boys. It was a great day. Everyone had so much fun riding on the trains and looking around the park. Rayna especially liked the little trains because she's been playing with her own trainset at home lately. Such a fun day.

Train Ride

Rayna loved riding on the train! She was a little nervous at first and wanted me to hold her tight, but once we started going, she thought it was great! Even Brady got to enjoy the ride. We can't wait to go do it again!

7 Months Old

Brady turned 7 months old yesterday. It's so hard to believe. He is such a happy baby now and loves to smile! He does still have a temper at times and boy can he get mad! He is growing like crazy. Yesterday he weighed 22 pounds and is now wearing mostly 12 month clothes! Such a big boy! He loves to roll around the house and scoot around in circles. No crawling yet. He is trying to get up on his hands and knees but just hasn't figured it out yet. That's quite all right with us!

Rayna and Brady

Here are some pictures of Rayna and Brady on his 7 month birthday. They sure do love each other! Rayna still loves giving him hugs and kisses and Brady is always smiling and laughing at her.

The Cousins

We actually got a picture of all three of the kids together. Not an easy thing to do with a baby and two toddlers who never want to stop!

Playing with Grandpa and Grandma

Grandpa Larry and Grandma Becky came for a visit last weekend. We had so much fun with them. Jeff, Mandee, and Rayden also came over for the evening so we could all visit and the kids could play. It was lots of fun. Rayna got to spend more time playing with them on Sunday and had so much fun playing trains and Little People. Thanks for coming to visit!

Giddy Up Cowboy!

The girls were so funny playing on Saturday. Rayna has a really big polar bear she likes to play with. Her cousins have taught her many fun games to play with it like wrestling it, running and jumping over it, and riding it like a horse. So, she and Rayden started riding the polar bear and Rayna kept saying "Giddy up cowboy!" It was so funny. They were so crazy and kept falling off and then would get right back on and do it again. So much fun!

Making Cookies with Grandma Becky

Grandma Becky has started a new tradition of making cookies with the kids when we get together. The girls had so much fun helping make and eat them! Even Brady got in on the fun.

A Walk in the Park

On Sunday, we took Grandpa and Grandma to the park with us and the kids. We went for a nice walk over the pedestrian bridge and walked around the pond and watched the ducks and fountain. We of course had to make a stop at the playground too for a little bit of fun. We had a great time!
