Seven Months

Since Braden is close to eight months now I thought I better post a seven month picture. This was actually taken on his seven month birthday. He is growing faster than I had hoped, but I absolute love each new stage. He still has no teeth. He isn't technically crawling, but he knows how to get from here to there, either by rolling or army crawling. He will eat anything you put within reach, which is scary! Sorry to be a lame blogger, but this little boy keeps me busy! Did I mention I am absolutely crazy about him?

Edisto Island

We had so much fun at Edisto Island with the Hughes and Andrews! We had never been to the beach with friends before, but we can't wait to do it again. I didn't take many pictures so I used some of Allyson's. Thanks friend!

Sarah, Allyson and I on our way to get breakfast. Unfortunately we had to listen to a long talk about time shares to get the free breakfast, so we came back to our condo and cooked. Aren't my pregnant friends cute?

The resort was so kind to provide us with salt and pepper! Ha ha!

Our breakfast was better anyway!


Braden enjoying his apple slice on the beach.

Allyson and Braden

I forgot to bring Braden's hat so we made a makeshift turban!

What a big boy!

One night we went into downtown Charleston. Here we are on a carriage ride.

The whole group eating dinner on the rooftop terrace at the Crab House (or Shack)

Braden fell asleep with the bottle in his mouth. Ben doesn't get to feed him much so I think it's sweet to see him giving Braden a bottle.

Dessert at Kaminsky's! I ate way too much!
Hughes, thanks so much for inviting us along for the trip! We had the best time! Thanks for putting up with a fussy baby on your last vacation without a baby!

Savannah

Well, these are nearly a month old now but I am trying to get caught up. In October we went to Edisto Island, SC with our good friends the Hughes and Andrews. On the way down we stopped in Savannah, GA to visit my sister, who just moved there. I didn't take many pictures, but here are a few.
This is what Braden does in the car...watch Baby Einstein DVDs. They have been a life saver for long trips in the car.

Sisters!

Walking around downtown.

Close up! I just thought his eyes looked pretty here.


My boys taking a nap while Becky and I scrapbook.

We were only in Savannah for about 22 hours, but it was so fun to spend time with Becky and Andy. I'm so glad they are only 7 hours from us now. Hopefully we will get to see them more often.

The Mirror

Braden has found a new love....himself! He makes me laugh!
