Fall is here

Wow the summer has flown by! We have been so busy here. Bob has been traveling a ton with work so the days all run together for me with working and taking care of 2 kids by myself.

Bradyn has been playing soccer every Saturday. He seems to like it. Today is the last lesson for that. This is the 1st year for Tremont to have soccer lessons. He played baseball this summer and LOVED it. He could not wait to go to practice every week and then games on Saturdays. It was so fun to watch him play. That is all he wants to do in the evenings is go outside and play baseball! It is so fun watch him learn new things.

Little Miss Brenna decided to start walking at daycare on Tuesday at 14 months and 2 days of age! I was disappointed that I missed out on that but I guess that's what happens when you are a working Mom :( She has quite the little personality! Her hair is growing in the back and is curly-so cute! She can say momma, dadda, bro, and the newest word is baby. Plus she loves ducks for some reason and does this really cute quacking at this high pitched voice!

Both kids are in swim lessons. This is the 1st session that Bradyn is in the water without a parent. He has done super great and really likes it. Brenna loves the water too. She loves to splash!

Next week starts a music class that I signed both kids up for. Bradyn was in it last summer and loved it and asked to do it again. That boy loves music and I only hope that will continue to grow as he gets older.

We have lots of activities planned for the fall. Fall has definitely arrived because I had to turn the heat on the other night. Too chilly for me! Enjoy the pictures-there is too many to share in one post so make sure you check them all out. I am a little slow at posting pics so these go all the way back to July for Brenna's birthday and when my brother and his family came to visit!

Happy First Birthday Sweet Princess!

Happy First birthday to our sweet little Princess Brenna Fayth! July 11th at 6:37am weighing in at 7lbs. 14 oz. and 20 1/2 inches long with strawberry blonde hair. You look just like your brother! I still remember that moment and always will. We were so anxious for your brother to meet you. He has loved you from the first moment and the love he shows to you has grown so much. He loves to make you laugh! Where has the past year gone? You are officially a toddler! The past year has been so much fun and joyful since you arrived into this world. We love you more than you will ever know. GOD has blessed us with a beautiful baby girl who is sweet and loves to snuggle and be silly. It has been so much fun to watch you learn new things this past year.

We celebrated by taking the kids to a farm park Saturday where the kids could feed the animals and play on the swingsets, etc. It was super hot but alot of fun. Brenna was so funny- she would point at the animals but did not want to pet them. Sunday we celebrated with my brother and his family who were traveling back to Utah and stopped in overnight to visit. We were so glad to see everyone. The kids had so much fun playing together-sure wished we lived closer and could visit more often!

Brenna, the past year has been wonderful with you in our lives. We look forward to watching you learn new things and growing into a beautiful young lady. Mommy and Daddy love you so very much (and so does your big bro bro Bradyn!) Hugs and kisses tootsie pie!

Busy Busy!

My updating has been bad I know! Never enough hours in the day with work and everything that I want to do. Don't want to miss out on the time with the kids because in the blink of an eye they grow too fast!

Brenna has been busy growing and learning so many new things in the past week. She has learned to say Mama, clap her hands (too cute), wave bye bye and now has started crawling! Unreal! I thought that she was totally going to skip the crawling because she loves to pull herself up but has figured out the crawling finally! Of course, Bradyn is not very happy about that because now she can get her hands on any toy of his!!

I took Bradyn today to sign up for baseball. He is so excited. It is coach pitched and they will have a game every Saturday for the summer. Should be cute to watch! Can't believe that he's 4!

We have had some crazy weather here lately. Can't wait for it to be warm, sunny and no rain! Have seen enough rain this spring already.

Enjoy all the pictures!

What an exciting time in our lives! You have been a blessing to our lives and we love you more than you will ever know. What a fine young boy you have grown into.

It is so fun to watch you grow and learn new things. I love that you still love to snuggle! You are so patient with your sister and love to teach her new things. I hope that you have the best birthday ever! Happy 4th birthday Bradyn! Love Ya!

Hello from Snowy Central Illinois

Yes I know it has been a very long time since I have blogged! I must apologize! Too busy with working, being mommy to 2 kids and TRYING to maintain a somewhat clean house! It is almost impossible for me to manage! Oh well- I don't want to miss a minute of the kids growing up so it can all wait!

We got about 15 inches of snow Tuesday night-biggest snowstorm in 20 years here! I love being snowed in at home. It was a treacherous drive home on Tuesday but we made it. Thank goodness work closed early or we would have been stranded because they closed the interstate. Bradyn and I spent some time outside Wednesday-only about 30 minutes because it was sooooo cold-only 18 degrees-brrrr! I was disappointed because the snow had a layer of ice on top so it was impossible to make a snowman and a snow angel. Bradyn prefers to "scoop" snow instead of sled riding. Santa brought him a sled and shovel. He's only been on the sled twice! Our neighbor plowed our driveway open for us or we would still be shoveling!

Brenna is growing like a weed. Time seems to go so much faster with the 2nd child. She is 6 1/2 months old and has 4 teeth already. She sits up pretty well and is such a good baby. She LOVES to watch Bradyn and snuggle with him. She started swim lessons The beginning of January and loves the water! I was really surprised! She is not much of a baby food eater. She prefers her milk! She was 16 lbs 3.2 oz (50%) and 27 inches (87%) at her 6 month check up. She is tall like her daddy!

Bradyn will be 4 soon :( He told me a few weeks ago that when he is 20 he will still be my baby! I am holding him to that! He loves his sis and loves to entertain her. Now that she can sit up on her own he loves to sit and play with her on the floor. He is the BEST big brother! He is learning so much at school and is Mr. social bug. Can't take that kid anywhere without him knowing someone and he's only 3 1/2! (He gets that from his daddy!) He also told me one day that he wants to marry me when he gets older! He cracks me up! Him and Bob went to the Monster Truck show last night and Bradyn LOVED it! It was good bonding time for the 2 of them. Bradyn's mouth ran a mile a minute when he got home to tell me all about it. I have never been to one. Next year we plan on taking him to the one in St. Louis! It is a much bigger show. He even got a monster truck at the show last night and that's all he's been playing with today. He has set up his race cars and is running over them with the truck just like at the show!

I hope that you enjoy the abundance of pictures and I promise I will TRY to do a little better with keeping up with my blog!
