At some point I will add videos that don't include Braden eating! However, this is very much a part of our life right now. What can I say, the boy LOVES food! He used to politely do the sign for "more", but since he learned to say "eat" he doesn't bother doing anything but shout "et et" from the top of his lungs. Enjoy!

We just returned from the doctor for Braden's 15 month checkup. He weighed a little over 22 (25%) pounds and was a little over 31 inches (60%). All his eating has been paying off! In other news, Braden is talking more and more. He mostly babbles but he does know several words including ball, hot, hat, mama, daddy, outside, more, bye and hi. I'm sure there are more, but that's all I can think of right now. Now that he can actually say words he is finally using his signs for all done and more. We are still working on walking, but he still prefers a very fast crawl as his mode of transportation. He has become quite a little monkey as well. I cannot leave him unattended for 30 seconds without finding him in a dangerous location like on the kitchen counter or climbing the outside of the stairs.
Here are LOTS of pictures from the last month or so including a trip to Savannah, Chuck E Cheese, the zoo, the drive in and just daily life with my favorite little boy!
Desperate times call for desperate measures. This was the last leg of our eight hour drive to Savannah and I broke down and gave Braden a ring pop. He loved it and it did the trick!
Caleb looking very thoughtful and about to get punched by his brother.
Emily made the trip to Savannah with me and I could not have done it without her. She was such a huge help to both me and my sister. She also evened out the adult to child ratio. Here we are on our way the my sister's neighborhood pool.
Braden probably about to destruct something in my sister's house. Sorry!
Aunt Becky bought a tiny baby pool and all three kids played in it. This is the only picture I have of it.
Emily, Braden and I went to Tybee Island one morning and enjoyed the beach for an hour or so. I wish we lived that close to the beach!
Braden's buddy, Aiden, turned one a couple weeks back. He had a little birthday party at Chuck E Cheese. We all had so much fun. I think the adults might have had more fun than the kids even.
The birthday boy!
This face is hysterical!
Amy holding both boys.
My dad and his cousin, Bob, came over to Sevierville for the day and we met them for lunch. Braden was quite the entertainer as usual.
Trying out a mini UT rocker. I think he needs one!
