Brecken has learned how to turn on the little aquarium-bubble-music thing that's in his crib. This morning when I came up to get him out of his crib (after he slept through the night till 6:45!!) he was laying there staring at the bubbles. Two nights ago when I laid him down, he stared at it in a daze until it went off and then he turned his head to the other side and promptly fell asleep!  Thanks to Paisley Widmer for this great hand-me-down!

B and I went on a little shopping spree Friday morning at Old Navy. I got there when they opened to take advantage of a sale going on and  because I was one of the first 50 people (actually, I was number 50 exactly), I got 50% off everything in the store. I couldn't pass up this super cute hat for Brecken. He'll fit right in at Steeplechase in a couple weeks! This was my first time ever shopping for clothes with Brecken. We ended doing a diaper change in his stroller in one fitting room and nursing in another fitting room later. What a day! 

Ice Cream Please!

On tax day, after getting our $2 burritos at Baja Fresh, we stopped by Maggie Moo's to get some free ice cream. Brecken is getting more and more interested in our food as evidenced by his hand in Michael's ice cream above! B ended up with chocolate ice cream all over him (but amazingly, none in his mouth!).

Sleeping Through the Night!

I don't want to jinx myself, but Brecken slept from 9 to 5:30 two nights ago and 8:30 to 6:30 last night - hooray!! Baby food, I love you - except for what you do to the aroma of my sons' poo.

Sticky Fingers

Enjoying our free Maggie Moo's for tax day.  Brecken had his eye on (and his hands in!) Michael's ice cream tonight!  


Yesterday we enjoyed the beautiful weather by hanging out in the backyard on a blanket in the shade after Brecken woke up and Michael got off work. I think the girls were less than thrilled with their bath!


B slept from 10 to 1 today and then fell asleep again at 2 when I set him down to play for a few minutes. He slept till 4! What's going on? He never sleeps like this! Must be the papaya. :) 


Every Tuesday night, we go to Celebrate Recovery at our church, Harpeth Hills. We are on the leadership team and are committed to being there every week. Childcare is provided so Brecken has come every week since he was about 6 weeks old. Tuesday is my full day to work in the office and Michael keeps Brecken at home. My office is in Green Hills so Michael picks me up on the way to church so I can work late and we don't have to drive two cars. This week, I brought food to feed Brecken for the first time. It was our first experience with papaya and with eating on the go and he did really well! The papaya was a hit! (Don't tell anyone I didn't even know what a papaya looked like when I went to buy one at Trader Joe's - thank goodness for those brightly colored signs!)

So Behind...

I'm so far behind on posting, I don't know if I will ever get caught up, but I'm sure going to try. There are so many things I want to post about that he's done in the last few months that I need to write down before I forget!

One thing that I know will help me stay on top of posting a little better is my new iPhone. My wonderful bosses bought me an iPhone to help me stay more connected and make it easier for me to work from home. It has been so wonderful - I sometimes wonder how I did without it for so long! Not just the iPhone itself, but all the capabilities I didn't have before. I mean, I was still using a RAZR with no text messaging. Having text has allowed and encouraged me to stay in touch better with friends and family. I may not have time to call and engage in a conversation with my sister, but I can send her a quick text to let her know I'm thinking about her, or that Brecken just did something cool!

I just set up mobile posting that allows me to post via text message and/or email (if I want to include a photo) which I can both do from my phone. I've been updating my Facebook status some from my phone, but this is even better because now I can send it straight to me blog instead!

Though I have wonderful intentions of getting caught up on the happenings of the last few months on my blog, in the meantime, I'm going to stop putting off new posts just because I'm not "caught up." Otherwise, I may never post again! So going forward, posts may be a little jumbled up date-wise, but the important thing is, they will be there (which is better than what I've been doing the last few months)! So here's to a cute baby and lots more posts in the near future...!

Six Month Pictures

Brecken's half birthday was April 6th - two days after Easter. Michael's parents were here and the weather was beautiful so we headed out to Centennial Park to take some pictures. I'm so excited that we got some awesome shots!
