Brecken woke up really early this morning and for some reason I just could not get myself awake enough to stay up with him. We have a twin bed in his room, so after I nursed him and got him a clean diaper, I closed the bedroom door, set him on the floor to play and I laid down on the bed for a few minutes. We don't have a clock in his room so a few minutes evidently turned into over an hour and when I woke up, It looked like a tornado had hit the room! The second picture is what his room looks like normally, with B sitting proudly in the center. Thankfully, his room is babyproof so I didn't have to worry about him getting into anything he shouldn't - just toys, books, and burp cloths! I was pretty amazed that he entertained himself for that long though! 

Sleeping Booty


(Pardon the pun!) This is how Brecken sleeps now and it is so stinking cute with his little booty sticking up in the air!

Baby's Best Friend

Brecken just finished eating his breakfast and now he's fascinated by watching the dogs eat theirs. He loves our dogs, Sadie and Keely. They love him too! They are very tolerant of his hair and ear pulling while we teach him what "gentle" means. :) B also gets a ride every once in awhile on their backs or will crawl onto their bed to snuggle or play with them while they nap. It's very cute. He is also learning to "duck and cover" when he's had his fill of Sadie kisses. :)

I'll Have A Lime Please

video
Brecken's first taste of a lime was a hit!  Well, not exactly his first taste...I did let him suck on my Trader Joe's lime bar the other day...now THAT he loved!

This morning after Brecken made a particularly large mess with his oatmeal, we did bathtime early. His normal hooded towel was dirty so I put him in his robe for the first time and he loved it! He crawled all over the place diaperless in just his robe - freedom! 

Brecken likes his hungry hippo (the mouth moves up and down when he walks) but he hasn't quid figured out how to make it move more than a couple inches on his own! He likes to hold on to the ears though!

I...want...the...remote!! (such a boy!)

The dogs have figured out that the area around Brecken's highchair is a landmine full of little tasty morsels. They aren't allowed in the kitchen while we are eating but they sure do like to hover around till we're done!

Now if I could only find a bowl that won't turn over...
video I think B is a little confused about who is supposed to chew on a rawhide. :)

Our alternative to Brecken playing in the dogs' water bowl. 

Oh I am soooo strong!

Brecken is in the stage where he is fascinated and intrigued by everything...especially if it's shiny!  It's so fun to watch him explore and try to figure things out. He is particularly interested in wheels, hinges, and knobs. Very much a boy!

Wordless Wednesday...bathtime!

Could he be any cuter?? I think not. :)

Brecken getting some Daddy time as they sneak in a little afternoon snooze in the recliner. So sweet. 

This is what greeted me when I went into Brecken's room this morning! Our little man has learned how to pull up to standing on his crib! Brecken is learning so many new things so quickly right now, its hard to keep up.
