Aunt B's Birthday

Just a quick update on Mr. B
He is now 5 months and loving his rice cereal and bananas!!Mr. Brady has found his feet and loves to hang on to them!!


Oh Bryn's birthday MONTH . . .
Bryn's b-day was a month long event this year and she deserved every day of it!! Rylee and I made her a puzzle and sent her a piece of it over the whole month. It finally read. . . .

You have traveled far and wide for us now its time for YOU to travel far and wide!!
We got her an all expense paid trip to the famous San Diego Gaslamp District and a room at the Hard Rock Hotel. Heather and Trevor and Chris and I surprised her all through the night.
This biggest surprise of the night was when we were ready to walk back to the hotel it was pouring rain!!! It was crazy, I would show you the pics but Heather never sent them to me, *tear *tear!! (Better late than never!!)
Bryns birthday dinner at my parents house was CRAZY!!! Rylee kept saying appy irtday D and wanted everyone to wear their party hats and toot their party horns! I think Rylee thought it was her birthday.



My mom got Bryn this shirt that was big enough for her and Rylee to fit in and then we noticed that everyone had on a black and grey striped shirt!!!



Bryn and Rylee are best friends anything Aunt B does Rylee wants to do or be a part of. On a daily basis Rylee asks to call D and wants to Skype on the computer. She just loves her to pieces! She is the best aunt ever so it's hard not to love her.

Dirty Mamas

Del Mar Mud Run 2010!!
About 2 months ago I got this great idea to do a 5K mud run (3.2miles). I recruited the best of the best to be on our team. We trained, picked a team name (Dirty Mamas) and designed our shirts. The Dirty Mamas were ready to run, jump over walls climb up dirt mountains and crawl through the mud at any cost. And did we have fun??
YES
I think the pictures speak for themselves!!
This was the last mud pit before the finish line and the crowd was chanting. . .Crawl Crawl Crawl. . . so we did!! There was lots of mud
My biggest supporters were there to cheer me on. Chris is the best dad ever. He had to round up both kids bring the double stroller, take pictures and video, and then wear Mr. Brady!!!

Corn balls we are. . . anything for a photo op!! Just a little bit muddy!

We did it can you believe it. We trained hard, persevered and it all paid off. What a fun experience. I was glad I could do it with my best friends.
All the Dirty Mamas and their crew. Thanks for coming out and cheering us on we really needed it :)
Job well done ladies.. . .until next year!! Tutus and eyelashes!!
Thanks to all the guys who had to cart around the kids, push the strollers, feed the baby's and support their Dirty Mama! We couldn't do it with out you :)

Brady 4 Months

Oh Mr. Brady you are getting so cute!!
Mr. Brady is 4 months old and learning all sorts of new things. There has been many rice cereal attempts with more landing on his bib, his hands and his face. I don't think to much has entered his little body! But it's really fun trying to do it. He is starting to sit, laugh more and suck his thumb! Yep that's right we have a bonafide thumb-sucker! I must admit its kind of cute, remind me of that in a couple years when I am trying to get it out of his mouth :) Rylee loves the paci and Brady won't even look at it. This is just more proof that Brady and Rylee could not be more different. If Rylee loved it Brady hates it and vice versa.
Thumb sucking was a HUGE accomplishment in my book!! He started sleeping better and is just now starting to find his thumb in stressful situations like the car rides and in the stroller. That makes for an easier ride to NB and Riverside. Now Rylee will stop covering her ears!
Hallelujah!!
I think that rice cereal might take awhile, like I said before not much goes in. Practice makes perfect!!

Rylee thinks its fun to sit on the counter and "help" Brady eat. She is eating more of the cereal than Brady, but at least it's getting eaten.

Mr. Brady is getting stronger and stronger by the day. He rolls over both ways and loves being on his tummy, which is leading to sitting. He can sit for about 2 seconds. . . that makes it really hard to take his picture, but I finally got it :)
Sitting is challenging for a little guy, balance is hard to come by and it's good thing he is close to the ground because there is lots of rolling/falling over. Its so cute.
And yes that is a mini Mohawk you see. No product needed its standing up all by itself.

I have kept a journal for both kids and it is so fun to look ahead in Rylee's and see what is coming next for Mr. Brady. Smiling, laughing and rolling over were some of the first accomplishments. Rylee rolled over at 3 months and 10 days and Brady rolled over at 3 months and 7 days . . . I'm sure you don't see any competition yet?!?!
I wrote in Rylee's. . ."as the spoon filled with the first bite of rice cereal was coming toward Rylee her mouth could not have been open any wider" and Brady's says "Brady's mouth was closed shut as the spoon was coming toward his lips" There are lots of differences but there is one similarity. The one similarity they do have is that they are both wonderful sleepers. Brady has latched on to the schedule and hasn't looked back. He is very close to sleeping through the night 7:30pm-7:30am with one feeding at 4!! I'll take it! I can see that there is going to be tons of fun in our family in the years to come.
I love watching their little personalities grow everyday. What a fantastic job I have, I wouldn't want it any other way :)
