Braden Taste Test

Braden weighs 20lbs 9oz and eats everything we put in front of him. Lately anything he can get into his hands goes immediately into his mouth. I call it the Braden taste test. It is hilarious to watch him get a hold of things, put them directly in his mouth, and then watch his facial expression either approve or disapprove. One of the worst reactions came when he gave my blackberry a taste... guess it looked more fun than it tasted.

Braden is sitting up and rolling around all the time. He wants NOTHING to do with his tummy and always rolls to his back, even when he sleeps. As a result he is not crawling or even close to attempting. We even try to put objects in his way, sometimes even ourselves, to try to keep him on his tummy but he is just not having it!

It is so fun to watch the discovery process and how he is connecting things. For example when he hears the front door open he looks up for who the new person is that has entered the house. Seems like a small thing but it is huge to us as another step in his development.

His determination inspires us every day!


  1. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that picture. Those big eyes and lower lip are just too cute. Can't wait to see him tomorrow. It will be his first visit to see us and his other pup-sister. <3

  2. I just love this picture of Braden and can't get over how much he looks like Brian...he is a cutie and I agree that watching them go through the discovery process is as much fun for us as it is for them!
    Love, Aunt Bonnie
