Lots of Firsts

I can't believe how fast things can change in the little world of Brody. He has gone from just laying and cuddling to a kid on the move. He does everything in fast forward. He still is just scooting with no belly off the ground, but I am pretty sure thats just how its going to be. He is going to skip the actual crawling and go into the walking stage.

Lets see, what else is new? Well Brody's first tooth popped through a few weeks ago, and along with it he was sick for the first time in his life. Because of being sick, I wasn't really sure if he was cranky because of the tooth or from the not feeling so well. Luckily he didn't get too sick. We just put a humidifier in his room and waited it out. We knew the doctor wouldn't be able to do anything more than what we did, so we didn't bother going to him. Tooth number 2 popped up this week, and Brody seems to be handling that fairly well. He has been a little cranky here and there, but not bad at all. Normally he sleeps all through the night, but he woke up and stayed up for a couple hours one night. Other than that, all went well.

Brody can now pull himself into a sitting position all by himself. One day he was lying on his tummy and the next thing I knew, he was sitting up. He did it again without me watching that day, but I finally caught him in the act. He gets on his side and then pushes himself up. Trevor finally witnessed him doing it today. It takes a lot of effort, but he can do it!

Another milestone has been standing up. He will pull himself up with our help, but now Brody stands up whenever anything is in his way. He will just climb right over the top of us. I am just waiting for the day when he falls backwards and smacks his head on the floor. That won't be so fun.

Cheesy grins are the best new thing. Anytime we get out the camera this scrunched little face all of a sudden appears. It cracks us up everytime. It is so stinking funny. The nose scrunches, the eyes squint, and you can even see the tooth.

Lastly, we will tell Brody shake your head and then we do it, and pretty soon he starts. If he is sitting up he nearly falls over from shaking his head so hard, but it is funny.

Splish Splash

It wasn't that long ago that Trevor and I were in the store picking out a bath for our little guy, and now 8 months later, he is just way to big for it. We have always put his plastic bathtub in our kitchen sink when we bathed him, but now we just bathe him in the sink itself.For about the first 30 seconds Brody didn't know what to think, but that was it for any reservations, he LOVES it now! Bath time is more fun than ever. We wipe down the sink really well, and put a little towel in the bottom so he won't slip everywhere and then its all fun and games from there!

They Did It!!!

I haven't posted in quite some time, but I thought that I better write that the girls did in fact win their state championship game! In comparison to the game before, it was a little anti-climatic, but a championship is a championship no matter what.
Way to go girls!
