Brady's First Swim of the Year
We decided to take Brady swimming on Sunday, the water was a little cold, so it took him a little while to figure out what he thought of the water, after while though he was splashing around, but he was not a fan of his float or we taking him off my hip! I signed us up yesterday for parent and tot swim classes, so be looking for pictures of lil man becoming a little swimmer!

FYI, Brady had more fun, kicking around in the bathroom sink than outside, check it out!

Brady's 14 Months
I decided to take Brady to get his pictures for mothers day in his My Mom Rules shirt! I can't believe his already 14months, I know I say it all the time but it really seems like yesterday I was pregnant with him!

My second Mother's Day...
was just as good as the first!
Today I couldn't keep my eyes or hands off Brady, he is just getting so much fun to watch and my love for him continues to grow each day, I'm so thankful and blessed! I always knew I was meant to be a mommy but until you are one, you can't really understand the love and what it really means to be a mom! It's funny to think too, God knew Brady before he was conceived and knew that he would be a perfect son for me! He coldn't be a better mixture of Ryan and I! His genuine sweetness, giving away kisses, frustrations when he can't do something, his big eyes and huge smile, he gets from me and then his love for the outdoors (he could seriously live outside, he runs to the door and bangs on it until we take him out), loving anytime of ball in his sight, determination to get something, his widow peak, blonde hair and nose is all daddy and of course his smartness is from Ryan too! He now knows where is nose is when you ask him, he'll point to it, he also will rub the back of his head when you ask him where his hair is! He loves to wave bye bye, he tells us by pointing and guiding us to the freeze or cabinet when he wants a drink or something to eat, he even started a couple of nights ago, waving his arms to his bed, when we ask him if his ready to go night night!
He couldn't be anymore attached to his blanket, he carries it everywhere, we even have 2 backups b/c they get so dirty! His also attached to his paci, he used to hand it over when we asked for it now, he shakes his head no and runs away laughing now!
I could go on forever and the only thing that I keep thinking about is what the next one will be like...oh I can't wait!

My precious adorable son, drool and all!

Brady and Me, look at the killer smile

Us last year, look how tiny he was, and how long my hair was!

He has the sweetest giggle!

We had dinner with Ryan's mom and Grandma took the kids on a wagon ride

Those kisses I was talking about that he gives away freely!

Avery's 1st Birthday Party @ Gymboree Play & Music
One of my best friends Tarenthia's little girl turned 1 on the 8th and had her b-day party last weekend! This was our first time to go to Gymboree, and we had a blast! This place is perfect for little kiddos, I would recommend it to anyone, Brady was just big enough to climb, slide, shoot baskets, and lots more! Avery is just a doll, and a princess of course!

Outside Fun
Sunday after our naps we went outside to play for awhile, Ryan had gotten the broom out to clean up some stuff and Brady got a hold of it and started trying to carry it around! For some reason Brady thinks it's a lot of fun to sit on top of Ryan's truck, so we sat him up there and he got a hold of a package of kleenex and was in heaven!
He looks like just a big boy!
It looks like his whistling!
