Happy to be home

We had so much fun at heidi and deric's but brad really missed his home. It has been fun all day to watch him go into a room and remember all the cool things in it. Portland is equally happy to be home and sooo tired from puppy camp.

Birthday Boy

All right. It is the video you have all been waiting for.
Every family must have the first birthday cake tradition, and we are no different. I don't think he was too fond of the frosting, as it kept coming out, but the cake wasn't so bad.

He went straight from the highchair to the bathtub after this experience.

Thank you all for your birthday wishes. You made Brad's birthday very special. He really did love every Happy Birthday song that was sung to him. He smiled at the phone and often bounced along. He loved the birthday banner we have (thanks gma lou) and all the presents.

Love you all.

Here are the bday photos!

Balls are fun, Dads are better.

Bath Time!

I offloaded my SLR after our trip to the Pumpkin Patch (see link below) and I found these naked baby pics!! I totally forgot I took them. One night Brian had late church meetings so I decided to have a bathtime shoot. I realized I didn't have any naked pics of my bug, so naturally I had to shoot a few - hundred.

Bath Time 11 Months!

Burt's Farm Pumpkin Patch - 11 months

I thought my fam would appreciate the full pumpkin patch photo experience. I know you guys love more pics, so I don't mind. Love you.

New Movies

My mom told me how much she liked the movies I posted so it inspired me to post a few more. They aren't anything too exciting, but I think it is so neat to see how Brad is growing and exploring the world around him.

8 MONTHS Crawl'n Around

8 month crawler

Normally I would write something cute. But it has taken almost two weeks for me to post these, I don't even remember what I was going to write. But I posted them to youtube so I will post them here.

Little Crawler

I've been crazy this month between traveling and working on church projects, so I'm sorry I haven't posted more.

Here is a link to our youtube channel.
There are more videos I just posted but don't have time to post them here! (I have to go get brad ready and meet dad at a service project!)

Hope you enjoy them!

Good scoot'in

6.5 months and counting

I offloaded my Cannon, so these are all pics from the last month.
The first photo kills me. What a little smirk!

It also so happened that Bradley decided to start officially scooting today. It had happened sporadically in the last few months- he would scoot an inch or two. But today... feet! Multiple feet!! Once he figured out it was "okay" to go backwards he was into it. I think it was kinda confusing at first, he would try so hard and scrunch his bum in the air and then end up further away. With lots of encouragement he was okay with it after a while.

I guess I need to start looking at my house from his perspective to see all the interesting things there are to scoot to.

Trying so hard to scoot forward!

Hey what happened?!

Oh! I moved! Cool mom!

soooo close

I haven't had much time to upload videos lately, but I have to post this!

He started doing little bum push-ups this morning! Grandmas you had better start baby-proofing!! I would bet that he is crawling in August for sure!

Our First Braves Game!

We had so so so much fun at our first Braves game! (uncle) Scott and (aunt) Meredith came to visit and treated us to awesome seats on the third base line. Bradley had a blast watching all the people, bright pictures and trying to steal some of Brian's hot dog.
Here are some of the movies that I took that night. I will post pics on FaceBook.

Our First Meal!

For the last few weeks Bradley has been intently working on getting anything into his mouth that his little hands can reach. Then he discovered that Mommy and Daddy also put things in their mouths and he decided this was definitely what the cool kids do. So he wanted to try too.

Our first food attempt was met with much success. He was so excited to be eating like a big boy, he ate almost 3 tablespoons! I guess we keep doing this once a day for a month or so and then move onto veggies and fruits.

I think Brian is more excited about this than me. He keeps asking about all the different foods he can stick in Bradley's mouth. Unfortunately he is not allowed to try eggs, strawberries, or peanut butter for a while. But he'll get there!

Go Tech!

So I had some way cute photos of Bradley in his Tech onsie but I somehow deleted them. I usually don't like to play the "woman technology deficiency" card, but there was some serious miss-communication with my computer. Oddly enough the movie was spared.

This isn't one of my brightest mom moments. But it is still cute. There was only a semi meltdown following the first vid. The second vid is part of our calm down recovery. Thank goodness for puppies!

Retro Boy

I couldn't help myself. This is one of the shirts that Brian used to wear when he was little. I took a few pics (200 some) of Brad in this shirt.

Here is a little slide show, but if you just want to look at the pics or print them out you can go to my Picasa web album with the link below. I posted all the pics I took. Usually I pick my faves, but there were just too many so I selected them all.

Retro Boy

On a side note. I noticed that the movies I posted don't show up well in internet explorer. In fact, only half of the movie shows up. I use firefox for my web browsing and didn't notice till recently. There isn't a problem in firefox.
If you want, I can post smaller versions so you can see the whole thing, just let me know by posting a note. Otherwise I'll keep posting the big version of the moives and you can view them in firefox.

Fun Outfit Pics

February 2010 Fun Outfits

On sunday Brad wore the shirt that Grandma Daniels made for him. The matching pants were still too big, but the shirt fits perfectly! Brad's top and length seem to fit 3-6 months clothes right now, but is waist is still really skinny and just barely fits 3 month sizes.

The other outfit is soooo cute and I think it used to be Brian's when he was little.
Possibly the cutest thing I've ever seen.
Brad and I were watching the Olympics this morning when suddenly he started cracking up. It took me a minute to realize he was laughing at the dog, who kept bringing us the ball and doing circles.

New Place

I wanted a place where I could obsessivly post about how cute my little boy is. I have tons of little movies that I know my family would love to watch, but I feel like other than family no one else really wants to see all that. So I made a separet blog.
Since we are so far away I feel like this is the only way I can share him, his growth and development, and share our famiily in an intamite way. In some ways I'm sure this blog is totaly self gratifying. It is like having a portfolio of how awseome my little guy is. But it is really meant to be for my family. I want so badly to be able to drive over to their houses and show them how bradley just learned to be "bu" sounds or show them how he just learned to roll over. But I can't. So I'll do that here and hope it is sufficient.
