September in Review...

Its has been too long since I have posted...so this is a long one...

Welcome Baby Keira! On September 7, our good friends Kerry and Pat welcomed their little girl, Keira Ann, into the world. She is so precious...and Brayden is so excited to have another girlfriend!!
Proud mommy and baby...
We also went to my schools back to school picnic. Brayden got to meet the police dog...he was not sure about him...
This is the view lately at our house....Brayden LOVES outside!!!!! He is constantly looking out the windows and doors. He is such an outdoors man! I went to pick him up at the sitter on Friday...and he had a MELT DOWN...about coming outside. We are talking kicking, hitting and screaming...I am going to have to get creative once its starts getting cold out!
We also celebrated Anna's 1st birthday. Anna is Brayden's friend from our mom's group....it is crazy to think that when we first met Anna she was about 6 weeks and Brayden was 2 weeks...and now we are celebrating 1st birthdays....boy---time does goes too fast! Here they are sharing cheerios...
And playing together. Brayden was also very interested in watching her open her gifts and eat her cake---I am sure that he will be in HEAVEN on his big day!!!
Brayden is into everything right now! He is SOOOOO close to walking...he can now stand on his own for long periods...but he is a speedy crawler...so when it comes to moving he knows how to get where he wants and FAST. We are hoping that he is walking by his first birthday...but we will see! He is also waving hi and bye...and at times it sounds like he is saying hi and bye too. He has mastered mama and dada...although he does not always use them correctly...but we are getting there. He is eating everything in sight....just today he ate crepes, french toast and potatoes...he is like our little garbage disposal. He amazes us everyday! Here he is waving...I am sure you can tell from the crazy arms...
Today we went to an Apple Orchard. Of course....this was great because we were outside the whole day. Behind us is a blow-up catepillar...Aaron and Brayden experienced this one....
The boys....Mike, Aaron and Brayden
Petting the goats....he is SUCH an animal lover too! Check out the teeth too----he now has 7!
Our good friends Mike and Lindsay...
Our family...in the crazy corn maze!
CORN!!!!!!!

We got to ride the cow-train...good times!!!
Chooo-chooo
And Daddy got to shoot an apple blaster gun!!! What a great start to the Fall we are having!!!

Labor Day Weekend...

This weekend for Labor Day weekend, we visited Grandma and Grandpa Jefford in Polo. We got to see a lot of family and friends...and Brayden kept every one busy!!! Here are the 3 men...looking at the picks for the fantasy football draft...
Saturday morning, we headed to White Pines State Park and went on a hike. Brayden is ALL smiles every time we are outside, so he loved the hike...

Back at the grandparents...Brayden had lots of toys to play with. He really enjoyed daddy's old little people garage. He also is now able to stand on his own...and does so on occasion, but when he realizes that he is doing it--he either falls down or grabs on to something...it is only a matter of time...and he will be walking!
Throwing toys off the deck was quite fun...Grandpa and daddy would go down under the deck and fetch them...so Brayden could do it all again...
TWINS!!!!! Brayden and Gramps sporting their "hair hats"....
And twins again...Terry and Brayden...
Judy and Brayden playing with magnets on the fridge...
Brayden's ride at Great-grandma's house...who knew a laundry basket could be so fun!
Visiting with Reena, Brian and Jaron...
A pointing competition with great-grandma...
BATH TIME...Brayden got to take a bath in an extra large tub...as you can tell from his smile he was in heaven!!!!
Today (Monday) we headed to see Great-grandma at Ronald Reagan's childhood home in Dixon...it was a very neat place...and Brayden chose to take home "Righty"...a Republican elephant...he played with it all day...I am wondering if it is a sign of what may come...
The president and us...Brayden really wanted to shake his hand...but no luck...so he just tapped and tapped him... He wanted to let him know that one day, he may be President too!
Back at home, Brayden hid in his new favorite spot...
And had his first hamburger...at our family Labor Day BBQ! How, we wish every weekend was a 3 day weekend!
