Brady Eating Rice Cereal

Brady just started eating rice cereal last friday. He knew what to do right away. He loves it! He opens his mouth real wide for every bite.

Brady is 4 Months Old!

Time goes so fast. We can't believe that Brady is 4 months old. I took him to the dr. yesterday for his checkup. He is 15 lbs, 14oz and 26 inches long. He is a BIG BOY!! He is very healthy and the dr said that he looks great. The only thing that she is concerned about is the shape of the back of his head. She wants him to try and stay off his back, other than sleeping at night. At his 6 month check up she will check it again. If it still looks the way it is now, then we may have to do a helmet to shape is head. I really do not want to do this.

At 4 months old Brady is:

- rolling from back to tummy
- smiling and laughing
- grabbing things
- trying to sit up
- babbling
- eating rice cereal (he loves it of course!)

Today, we took Peyton, Brady, and Addy to get Holiday pics. Grammy bought them matching outfits. They looked so cute. The experiece did not go so great. They are at that age where they don't want to cooperate. We did get a few good pics though. Here a couple pics of the boys at home in their holiday attire!

Gingerbread Train, Christmas Cookies and Snow.... What Snow!!!!!

Yes, it was an eventful day today. The boys and I left the house in the morning to go over to my mom's house. We decorated a gingerbread train, made sugar cookies, and made green rice crispy treats. We were in the kitchen all day long. It was a lot of fun. The kids were involved in it all. While we were fixing dinner for tonight, I looked out the window and it was snowing. I couldn't believe it. We quickly got the kids bundled up ( I thought for sure that it would not snow for long) and went outside. Peyton was so excited. He kept asking to make a snowman. The snow was pretty thick, but it was not sticking to the ground. He just enjoyed catching snow flakes on his tongue and watching them fall. He did not want to go back inside. It snowed for over an hour. The snow make it such a perfect Christmas day to be with family making Christmas treats.

After we got inside from being out in the snow, we made the kids hot chocolate for the first time. The kids did not really like it, so Lezlie and I enjoyed it!!

We ended our day eating 15 bean soup with cornbread. It was so so good. When we left my parents house, it was snowing again! CRAZY!!!

Enjoy the pics of our fun filled day!! It is hard to see the snow in the pics. I promise though it snowed really hard!
