Merry Christmas!

"Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,
“Glory to God in the highest,and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”

Eight Months

Here is the last month or so in pictures. Enjoy!
This is how wide Braden opens his mouth every time he takes a bite. The boy loves to eat!
These days I have to put Braden in something to keep him from getting into mischief.
Papa and GrandJan with Braden during his first "snow." You can't even tell it's snowing!
Braden had his first cold in November. He was so sweet and slightly more cuddly than usual.
Such a sweet little sick guy!
Braden had his first popsicle on Thanksgiving. You would have given him one too if you saw the way he eyed the older kids eating theirs! :)
Joslynn was in town for Thanksgiving and several us of went to Cracker Barrel. Unfortunately I only took this one picture. Braden liked the old timey high chair. London did not!
I think he likes the stocking we picked out for him!
Precious sleeping boy!
When Braden wakes up happy I crawl in there and talk to him through the bars on his crib. We call him our little jail bird! I tried to capture how cute it is, but the flash kind of messed it up!
"Enough pictures....get me out of here!"
Into everything already. Childproofing my house kind of snuck up on me!
I don't know what he's doing here, but it's funny!
"Look Mom! Watch me pull up."
Another one of our sorry snows! Still, you have to capture it on camera.
So, Braden usually wakes up happy and talking to himself. However, this was not one of those days! I know he looks so sad, but I still love this picture of my favorite boys.
Sometimes it takes a little while to wake up!
Playing with his favorite toy! Thanks again Traci...he still loves it!
What picture post would be complete without some hilarious pictures of Braden's funny faces?

Eight and a half months and still no teeth! I am in no rush....I LOVE this gummy smile!

Braden just started making this face the other day. I have no idea what he's doing. I like to think he is saying Mamamama, but no sound comes out. He really just looks like an old man with no teeth slapping his gums together. He makes me laugh so hard!
