2 months

Brayden had his 2 month check up last week and he weighs 14 lbs and he is 23 inches long. He is in the 90th percentile for weight and the 50th for length. He's a chunk, but that chunk makes him all the more cuddly. The doctor was not at all concerned about his weight, so I'm not either.
When Brayden was about 1 1/2 months old, he rolled over by himself one day. I thought it was maybe just an accident, but he did it again the next day. He's a pro at it now. He rolls over the second I put him on his tummy, so now we just have to work on rolling from his back to his tummy!
I just love his cheeks in this picture!

Baby Blessing

Matt's parents were only here for a few short days during the holidays, so we were able to have Brayden's baby blessing in our home on Christmas eve.

Christmas 2011

Brayden sitting with Nana
Addy trying out her new toy and taking care of her baby.

We had a full house this Christmas! Matt's parents and brother's little family stayed with us. Addy loved playing with Nanna, Papa, Grace, Scotty and Brittney and makes sure she includes them in her prayers...especially Grace, She has also named her baby Grace.
Grace and Brayden are only a month apart, but Brayden is twice the size of Grace! Grace is older! There were pictures taken of them side by side, but not on my camera. I will have to get a copy.
Addy got her own little nursery station for her baby. Once she saw that, she couldn't be distracted by any other presents. I'm happy she likes it so much! She got lot's of fun presents from her aunts and uncles and grandparents that she has been eBnjoying these past couple of weeks as well! Brayden got a few things as well..mostly clothes, but he also got a little "play center"? I'm not sure what to call it, but he enjoys laying on it and batting at the toys hanging above him.

Our New Home

In the beginning of September, Matt and I decided we wanted to buy our first home. We had been casually looking at houses for several months and then we found one that we really liked. The house is a little on the small side, but it works for us. It has four bedrooms, one bathroom and a partially finished basement. The back yard is a good size with plenty of room for a great garden and maybe a little swing set. It also has a fire pit which I love. We still have some improvements to make, but it's coming along.
