All good things happen at 3!

Braden turns three!  It has gone by so fast and we have been making memories every day. He had a party with friends and family all weekend.  He is thriving and getting into all kinds of trouble.

Current Loves: building blocks, eating salmon, playground slides, climbing on ... everything, watching Dora the Explorer, playing puzzles on the Kindle.

Current, He Could Live Withouts: eating bell peppers, taking his shoes off, potty training (ugh), anything he does not control. :)

He is all boy and we love it!

I am THE Boss

Braden is a loving yet defiant toddler bossing us all around more and more each day. No idea where he gets it :))   Went to Florida... Braden had a BLAST building sand castles, hanging in the ocean, and JUMPING into the pool!  He also just went to a family wedding which included back yard games where he and cousin Celia had their own plans for who was to play what and how :)  Pics below.

Father's Day!

Spent a great time in Houston with Poppa Godley and daddy at the park.  Braden is an engineer at heart enjoying the cause and effect of pushing buttons that makes the alligator and crocodile mouths open and close.

We drove back through Lockhart to grab BBQ with daddy and then gave him some super cool gifts.

Braden is amazing.  Talking more and more and gaining an attitude to match. :)

Checking In!

Where to start! Been awhile and so much has happened. Braden is doing great! He is full of life love and keeps us all BUSY!! We have cleared so many hurdles and are so blessed. We did discover he and Daisy have something in common... Von Willebrand disease! Essentially it is a form of hemophilia and very mild in his case so it should not be much of a factor. Can you believe our DOG has the same thing. So crazy!

Cracking up with Ama and Poppa Godley. He loves to laugh with them!

Easter was amazing. We saw so many family and friends. Braden got a hug from the prettiest girl at the egg hunt :) Clearly he was stunned.

Got a recent visit from my sweet niece and nephew where he got to see some serious bubbles.

He is SERIOUSLY attached to momma right now. He says a new word every day. He loves to play in our cars. He is obsessed with the word "eeewwwweee" (I have a video proof people claim will win me money) ... will post soon.

Love you all.

Medicine, Moons, and My Turn

Medicine - Braden is so good at taking medicine, in fact he begs for it. Hilarious and we caught the moment on video.

Moons - Braden LOVES looking at the moon and the stars and often out of nowhere will say, "Moon stars at night". It is a bedtime ritual for him and daddy.

My Turn - Braden has learned all about his turn and has just started saying, "My turn! My turn!" when he wants to try something on his own. We usually go for a walk and he rides in the wagon but he is so interested in his turn he actually pushed the wagon the entire walk tonight!

Aside from strep (right after I said he was so healthy) he has been doing really well. We took a trip to the beach. What better timing than the ONE cold weekend we have had in awhile but we made the most of it and he even flew a kite with daddy!

Who is Ju-Ju?

So my son says "momma" all the time but recently he started saying "ju ju" and we were soooo confused as to who he was talking about. Until he continued to look at me, or pictures of me, and exclaim, "Ju Ju!". We finally realized my mom calls my Jules or Ju-Ju and he has picked up the name.

He is in such an adorable phase. He is talking more and more and just such a love bug. School says he is a monkey because he climbs all the time on everything! He loves berries, broccoli, cheese, salmon, and rice. He is learning to count, knows tons of animals, says his ABCs, and is fascinated by music, lights, and blocks.

Best news is he has been so healthy. No issues of any kind since May (knocking on wood) and we are thrilled as he deserves the break! Love to you all!

Ringing in the New Year

Our classic photo of Mr. B. We have an amazing son who is in love with blocks, water, being outside and the garage (seriously, he could watch it go up and down for hours).

Happy New Year to everyone!
