Brady- 20 months

It's so hard to believe that Brady is 20 months old! He has changed so much the past few months. He's really starting to talk. He repeats words he hears. His speaking vocabulary is catching up with his listening/understanding vocabulary. His new favorite word is "no". I'm not too excited about that  because he's always telling me no now. No is his answer for everything. He's a champ at taking naps. He loves to play with his toy trucks. He loves to be outside. He's becoming more aware of when he uses the restroom. He's even peed on the toilet. I'm seriously thinking about potty training him soon, I just don't know where to start. Hopefully I can figure it out soon. Brady's been sick, a lot, this fall. He was sick for almost 2 weeks at the beginning of October. I think he had a virus plus the stomach virus at the same time. It was a rough couple of weeks. He's had some issues with sinus/allergy this year as well. Hopefully, all the sickness is behind us cause I can't think of anything worse than a sick baby. He's got the sweetest and cutest smile, he just brightens up my day with his smile. He can be loving at times, but loves to be down and running like a wild man. He still loves books and a few of them he's even able to say some of the words with me. He doesn't get along with his cousin Gavin very well, I think they aggravate each other and Brady doesn't know how to handle someone giving him a hard time. They do play together well, at times, and keep each other company. Brady loves his Aunt Kristian, she's probably his favorite person, but Makenna is a close second. He's growing and changing so much each and every day.

I had the stomach virus during Halloween so Brady didn't get to do a lot of trick-or-treating. He was a sheriff.

He eats oatmeal every morning.

Growing up so fast.

He felt so bad at the beginning of Oct.

He stole a paci and is hiding.

Old habits die hard.

So Thankful

Hi there friends! It's been a while since I've posted and I'm way behind. I'm going to try to do a catch up post on all that Brady has been up to very soon. I also need to do a post about all that mama & daddy have been up to lately, lets just say, we've been extremely busy! You'll see why in the near future.

So Thanksgiving is one of my most favorite holidays so I wanted to post about how blessed I am. This has been a wild & crazy year. So far, since January 1st, I've lost 4 people from my family. Three pasted away due to cancer. It's been a tough year. However, I'm so thankful God put each one of these special people in my life to love. They all will forever be missed.

With that being said, I am one very blessed girl. My biggest blessing is that I'm a Christian and a child of God. God has given me all the blessings that I'm so grateful for and love. I have the most wonderful family. My family is my most favorite Earthly blessing. We were able to get together and enjoy each others fellowship Wednesday night and Thursday. Steven is the best gift God's ever blessed me with. He's my soul mate and there's not words that can describe the depth of our love. We've been through a lot together and it's only made us stronger. As a couple, our greatest blessing is Brady. He's our life, our joy, our future. Brady's the funniest kid I know. I'm also thankful for the little surprises God has thrown our way. I don't understand why God answers our prayers the way he does, but I do know that He knows exactly what we need and He always takes care of His children. There are so, so, so many more things I'm thankful for but won't bore you with all the details. I'm so happy and thankful and blessed. I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and wonderful holiday season.
