Happy Halloween?



We got a really cute grizzly bear costume for Brody, but when we put it on to go trick or treating he got so upset (as you can see)! Well we immediately took it off and figured we would be spending the night in.

















As luck would have it I remembered a little basketball outfit that would be a perfect costume. We put it on him, and this was his immediate response! I guess he really wanted to be a baller!



















We went trick or treating to both grandparents, and to some great grandparents. Brody was so good the whole night, its hard to believe that he went from being upset to thrilled in just a matter of minutes!












Whew! An evening of trick or treating can really wear a kid out! Overall the night went well, and Justin and I even ended up with some candy to take home!

Play time!


So Brody isn't the biggest fan of tummy time (I mean it's soo exhausting) but a friend of ours gave us this surfboard tummy time mat which Brody seems to be excited about.






His style of play has definitely changed in the last couple of weeks. He's starting to really observe and think about things more. It's really fun to watch him explore, and see the little wheels turning in his head as he checks things out.



I try to show Brody pictures of himself on the computer, but he doesn't really seem all that interested. However, once he seems himself in the mirror he's all smiles! I think he knows he's pretty good looking!







One of the parents in my preschool class gave me this little outfit for Brody, which is so cute. What mom wouldn't love this shirt? I had to take some pictures with it because I'm sure he'll grow out of it soon. I do think Justin's a little jealous of the shirt, unfortunately all the I love Daddy shirts and purple and pink. Sorry daddy!
Brody's just holding tight to his favorite toy. The funny thing about this picture is that Brody's shirt says: 2007 Drool Session. It's so true, he's like a faucet! I can't imagine what it will be like when he starts teething....

The Hello Game

Here's a little video of Justin and Brody playing a little game together. It's a really cute video, but obviously I'm going to say that!

Brody's Baby Blessing



Last Sunday was Brody's baby blessing! That morning he woke up so excited and happy, we think he knew what a special day it would be for him. He looked so cute in his white outfit. After the blessing we had a little luncheon at the Ashton's. It was really special to have so many friends and family there for his big day. My nephew Jordan is probably one of Brody's biggest fans. He kept asking to hold him and wanted us to wake Brody when he was sleeping. It was a great weekend to be with friends and family but we definitely missed those who couldn't make it.

Brody's Favorite Things

The best part of Brody's day is definitely his bath! He loves to relax in his little bath tub, and be completely taken care of. We've learned that when Brody's taking a bath you'd better take cover, when he gets excited he starts splashing water everywhere!









Hmmm... It's not too hard to figure out what these two are up to! The real question is: are they watching a baseball, football or soccer game? Either way Brody loves to sit in his little lazy boy and take in a game with daddy!

Wow, I'm actually in front of the camera rather than behind it! We're just relaxing and 'talking' together. Ever since Brody's started cooing, its been fun to have little conversations together.











Just a little tummy time! Brody looks a little surprised to have his picture taken, but when you're this cute, you just have to get used to it! He's usually not a fan of tummy time, and actually uses the time to scoot around rather than work on his neck muscles. Talk about going the extra mile!
