Brady Update

So it's been awhile since I've blogged and definitely a good minute since I've updated about my sweet, sweet boy!

He is growing up way too fast, but I am loving him more and more each day!  Twos are definitely trying, but also so fun.  Thought I'd jot down some things that I just don't want to forget.

The biggest news is NO more diapers!  The weekend of March 8th, my mom came to town to help while we had a few photo shoots and by the end of the weekend, diapers were a thing of the past.  I slowly weaned him off during nap-time.  And tonight is the first night we are going to bed with just undies on.  Ekkk!  He's been waking up lately with a dry diaper and tonight he requested no diaper.  So I thought we'd go with it & just see.

Honestly, I was dreading the whole potty training process.  I also was in denial.  I wasn't ready for "my baby" to grow up.  He must have been ready because it was a breeze.  A few M&M's and a little bit of patience and boom.  Potty trained.

Other than that, his vocabulary has just exploded.  Stringing words and sentences together like he's been doing it his whole life.  Most days, I think "did he really just say that?" And his memory is incredible.  A steel trap!

The Easter bunny came early to our house and we have TWO bunnies. He is loving them and thankfully they are really great with him.  I came in from the garage one morning to find in and "Papa bunny" in a bucket.  He told me "bunny bucket, momma!"  Haha!  Love him!

Here are just a few things he has said lately, that I just love!

"Best momma/daddy ever!"
"Go work, do something!"
"Momma so pretty!"
"Princess momma"
"Ohhh little bunny"
"B. firefighter, momma firefighter, daddy firefighter"
"Read bible right now."
"...the Bible tells me so"

He is really into singing these days.  Request us to "sing song."  His favorites are "deep & wide", "Bible tells me so", "spider", and "wagon wheel."

Here is something on posted on FB just last week:
Because I don't want to forget these things/moments:

- was trying on clothes today when Brady said, "cute momma!"

- during lunch Brady told me (while hugging his daddy) "momma go to work, go do something!"

- "read book to bunny" & picked out a farm book then showed/pointed to the various items & told bunny "shovel, hay in there, farmer, etc"

- AB went to the potty & B got all excited & came to
tell me "woohoo daddy went peepee in the potty, get M&M!" (M&M's were his prize while potty training)

- and my absolute favorite when he hugs me & tells me "best momma EVER!

Our nighttime routine normally consists of dinner, bath (normally given by daddy), read 3 books and a prayer book, sing songs, then lights out.

He's gotten into the habit of wanting to say the prayer before dinner and talk about melt your heart.  I am certain daddy and I have to hold back tears some nights! :)  Also, hearing him say his prayers before bed is SO incredibly sweet.  Warms my heart!  I need to get it on video.

He is also really into birthdays right now.  "Yay birthday party!"  His face says it all.

He is still a really good eater.  His favorites are cheeseburgers & fries, pasta, and smoothies.  He basically eats whatever we eat.  He's not the best fruit eater, so the smoothies are a great way for me to sneak those in.

He has stolen our hearts.  We can't imagine our life without his silly, sweet, and fun self.  Lately, I've been in awe that he is mine and God has entrusted us with this little human.  Some days are tough, but at the end of every single day regardless of how hard it is - I go to bed with a full heart.  So thankful I get to be his momma.
