What is up at the Axe house?

Well, since it has been 4 weeks since I blogged last you would assume we have a lot going on. I am not sure if that is accurate. We now have a 9 month old in the house. And if his behavior now sheds any light how he will be as he gets older, we have our hands full. At our Dr. appt. Brandon's weight was at 21 lbs. 12 oz. and he was 27 1/2" long. He can rollover every which way, he eats puffs, and we are in the stage 2 foods. I have him in size 3 diapers and he is wearing 12 month clothes. He is a mama's boy, but he still has not said mama. He talks about his dada all day long though. We have recently set up his playarea in the living room. It has a few toys, but what I like about the area is it keeps the dogs out of Brandon's way. Or maybe it keeps Brandon out of the dogs' way. We have been fortunate to have a new friend move into town and give us clothes for Brandon so I have been able to reduce my spending on his clothes substantially. (Thanks, Amber!). We have been to playgroup at Miss Laurie's, and Miss Erin's homes in the last month. I find at every playgroup, Brandon shows me how boring I am at home. He really has a great time, oh and his mom really likes going too. We have had two birthday parties we have gone to this last month. One for Harper (first birthday), and one for Caleb (third birthday). Harper's birthday party was done so cute for a 1year old, it was a drop in party, and any gifts brought are being taken to the Ronald McDonald house. We brought a couple of kid games. Then we had Caleb's birthday party a week or so later, it was at Chuck E Cheese, and if any of you know me, I do not like Chuck E Cheese the mouse, or anything dressed up. So when he came over to see the kids I was a little nervous. I know that is ridiculious. We were able to play in play zone and get a few pictures. We will see if I can figure how to get the photos off of Jeremy's new camera.

Then, we had a birthday party to go to today, but with the roads a little hairy we opted to stay home. Today, church was canceled so we stayed inside where it is warm. Bentonville schools are closed tomorrow so we will have to see what this week holds as far as the weather.

Until Then,
