Sept. 15th
Brady gets Promoted and I'm realizing Brady is not a baby anymore :(
This morning when I dropped Brady off at school they told me he was getting promoted to a new class for big boys! I started to panic a little when I looked and saw there were no beds...they take naps on mats! My baby is too little to sleep on a mat! Everyday something new like this hits me and I realize my baby is not not a baby anymore, his becoming a big boy! right before my eyes!

BarneyAddiction/Aunt Peachy turns 90
Yesterday we had to stay home from church b/c Brady was running a low grade fever, so we had a day of rest. I had to snap these pictures of him, so you can try to understand and get a glimpse of my son's Barney addiction. We finally got smart and started using Ryan's playstation has a second dvd player for the other living room so Ryan and I couldn't actaul watch TV. So now he just pops a squat right in front in of the tv and will watch an entire episode. But don't worry we don't let me do this all day long!

Can you tell we let him go outside without his shoes

He was getting ready for a nap!
Aunt Peachy turns 90!
We went over to my aunt Drusilla and uncle Shoo Shoo's house to celebrate my great aunt Peachy's 90th b-day! Peacy was my Papa's (my mom's dad) sister, I believe she is the only living sibling left! She has lived a great life and were very lucky to have her!

Our Baby is 18 months
I say it every month but I really can't believe it, he's so big! What happen to my tiny baby?
Brady now has 14 teeth, he's gotten really good at his baby sign language, though his more looks like a time out sign, he rubs his belly instead of his chest for please and his thank you looks like his blowing a kiss. But he actually says more and signs and just yesterday he said thank you, on the way to school after I gave him a pancake, my heart just smiled! He is addicted to Barney and points to any TV he passes and says barney. He still loves to play outside, epecially with his little tikes car a friend gave us! He still eats all day long and his growing right out of his shoes, but his clothes are barely 18months!
I keep having these emotional moments, where I just look and him and want to cry b/c he's so big! Like yesterday when he said thank you and when we were out eating mexican food and he had a hot sauce bowl all to him self, dipping and everything, and a couple of nights ago when I peeked on him sleeping and he was sprawled out on his back taken up the entire bed almost!
I had some shirts made for Brady so he could support his mommy and her lady tigers, although I had strict instructions from daddy that lady could not be anywhere on the Brady or his shirts. The night I got them I had to put them and see how they fit. I had Boozer put on the back, and I just got flashes of the future, watching him playing ball wearing his very own jersey, oh, I can't wait!
He has the most precious and contagious smile!

Just looking at mommy
He loves to hold up his hand and say stop like mommy taught him before we go into the street
Stop Mommy and look for cars
If your happy and you know clap your hands

Averie turns 5
Courtney and Colby's little girl Averie celebrated her bday today! It was @ a Pump it Up but Brady and I were extremely late b/c I had practice, we made it just in time to eat pizza, cake, and open presents! Brady was kinda being a grouch again, he actually had some more teeth coming in, I know crazy, he already has a mouth full! He did have a coupld of moments of happiness and one was caught on camera, he figured out how to drink a Capri sun and was so excited, by little boy is growing up!

Mari turns 3
Mari had her b-day party at Splash Factory in Grand Prairie, it was so fun! I didn't know what to expect, I thought it was like a regular water park, but there was actually no pools, all the water came up from the ground or from pipes from above, so basically Brady was able to run around free! Unfortunately, it was chilly outside, so the kids were shivering, Brady's lips were actually purple, but he refused to stop playing and let me wrap him up, he wouldn't even stop to eat, and if you know m y son, he loves to eat!

Mari is 3!

Moving Day
While I was away for most of the day at my tournament Ryan and Brady went to help cousin Braeleigh, Aunt Stephanie and Uncle Billy move into their new house. By the time I got there to take these pictures the kids were pooped but still wanted to help, they thought it was the funniest thing ever to be in the moving van, sliding boxing to the end of the truck!

Pump It Up
Brady and I met up with Avery and her mommy Tarenthia at Pump it Up's free play! This was Brady first time to go, the kids had a lot of fun together and Tarenthia and I sweated! The pictures are a little misleading, it looks like Brady was a happy boy the entire time, but actually he was a bit fussy and I couldn't figure out why, I knew he was tried and was ready for a nap, but normally if were busy playing he's great! Well, when we got home, I realized he had a fever of 102, so I ended up taking him to the doctor the next next and it was a virus, 3 days back at daycare and he's already sick! Poor little guy was trying to tell me too! Anyway despite that, the we all had a great time!
