What a difference 6 months can make?

 Brady is now 6 months old, and we are having fun!!

He is such a great baby!! He is fitting into our family nicely. He is wearing size 3 diapers, 9 month clothes, and he weighs 17 lbs. and is 27 inches long. He got his first tooth a couple of days before he turned 6 months and the second tooth appears just a couple of days later.

Brandon has enjoyed being a big brother, he is a big helper. Brady looks a lot like my baby pictures. I think Brady will keep his blue eyes, he has a sliver of brown at the top of his left eye so I guess that makes him an extra special blue eyed boy. Brady can roll over, sit up unassisted for long periods of time, and he gets on all fours and rocks so he might be crawling before I know it. He is now sleeping a little better, he goes 7-9 hours between feeding at night. He has started rice cereal and is taking to is nicely.

He just makes me smile when I see him, especially when he flashes a smile. He gets that from his Daddy. His personality is pretty easy going, and he is a Mama's boy.

Until then,

New Arrival and Twinkies

We welcomed our new baby boy on October 25, 2011. He was 9 1/2 pounds and 20 inches long.

Brady Lane Axe

We got Brady's name from a former Razorback Baseball player that is now a Christian singer, songwriter. And Brady's middle name is Lane and that is my Grandma T's maiden name.
Brady sleeps in our room in a bassinet, and he goes 2-3 hours between fee
dings with 2 stretches of 5 hours each day.
Brady Lane Axe will be 12 weeks old tomorrow and he has been a super baby. As far as stats for him now his is over 13 pounds. He is wearing size 2 diapers, and size 3-6 months clothes. He laughs and smiles a lot. His brother, Brandon, asks to see him all of the time. The trick with both boys is giving Brady the attention he needs (diaper change, nursing, and rocking to sleep) while trying to give Brandon the attention he wants and needs.

We have had lots of holiday fun with the boys this year. I was a scrooge and did not even put up a Christmas tree this year.
I thought I would put up the boys newborn pictures and see if you all can pick out which one is which.

Too much fun!!! The top picture is the scrawny Brandon, and the bottom picture is the fluffy Brady.

Well, Brady is awake from his nap so I better check on him.

Until then,
