11 Months Old

Brady turned 11 months old on Saturday. Less than a month and our little boy will be one. It's so hard to believe.


Well, Brady is finally doing some real crawling. He discovered that it's a lot easier to pull up on things if he is already on his knees, so he is doing it more and more. He still seems to prefer the army crawl since he is so fast at it.

The Bathroom

This is Brady's favorite place in the world. Anytime anyone is in the bathroom or if the door is even open, Brady will army crawl as fast as he can to get in here. He loves baths and at first just pulled up on the bathtub and got all excited. He has now discovered the toilet and thinks it's great to play with the handle. He also likes sticking his hands in the water. So now, we keep the toilet shut and the door closed as much as possible.

Brady's New Trick

Brady is now pulling himself up on everything! He is getting so quick at it and is also a little too brave. He is already letting go at times and has taken several spills. Thankfully, no major injuries, just a few scratches and bumps and bruises on his face. He thinks it's great being able to pull up anywhere he wants!

More Snow

We got more snow on Monday which was so exciting. Rayna couldn't wait to get out and play in it. I had to convince her to at least wait until it was light outside. We bundled Brady up too for his first time in the snow. He wasn't real impressed. He didn't mind it too much until he tried to crawl in it. Then he cried.

Rayna's Snowman

Here is Rayna with the snowman we made. She loves her Frosty so much and kept giving him hugs and holding hands and dancing with him. It was so cute. We spent a good part of the day outside playing in the snow and playing with Frosty.

Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer

Yes, Christmas is over, but Rayna found her blinking nose and antlers that were put away in her drawer. So, the kids took turns being Rudolph. It was so cute. Rayna was even singing the song for me.

A Little Snow

We lucked out on Thursday and woke up to some snow. It wasn't much, but enough to get Rayna excited. She wanted to go out and play in it and had fun eating it. She really wanted to make a snowman, but we didn't get quite enough. Hopefully we'll get some more this winter.

Christmas Dinner

We spent Christmas afternoon and evening over at Monica's house. We had a great time hanging out with family and eating more yummy food. The highlight of the night was Monica's new SingStar (the 80's version) video game. We all had so much fun singing 80's songs. Even the kids got into it. It was pretty funny.

Playing with Christmas Toys

Some pictures of the kids playing with some of their toys. They love everything so much and are having so much fun! The giraffe tent is a hit and so are the roller skates! Brady also loves Rayna's kitchen. He thinks its great fun to pull up on it and play. Unfortunately, it's not very stable and has fallen over on him a couple of times. But he keeps going right back.

Christmas Morning

The kids were so cute Christmas morning. Rayna was so excited by it all and Brady kept wanting to climb on all the presents. They love all their new toys and are having so much fun playing with them together. Rayna got her Curious George panties that she wanted from Santa and has been doing awesome at going potty on the toilet! Brady got lots of cool boy toys and thinks they are great. It was a wonderful Christmas!
