Sneak peak

Here is our sneak peak from Ms. Vickie.  I highly recommend Vickie Ross in Florence, MS.  She is very patient and doesn't give up easily on getting a good shot!


Flu season.

A rare thing these days...A picture of the two of us.  I love this man more every day.
We had Christmas pictures made last week.  Which was super fun, but Brant was way too interested in the things around him rather than pictures.  He is such a curious boy these days.  All smiles on the way of course.
We just recently pulled out the pull up toys, and Brant LOVES these!!!  He's not crawling or looking interested in it all, but is very interested in standing up. 
Daddy is the pro at getting Brant to sleep at night.  I know we are going to have to work on the putting him in the bed to go to sleep thing again.  We had it down, and recently have been rocking or holding him more.  Oh well, he is only little once and is pretty easy to transition to his bed from our arms. 

Last week Ike was so sick.  Wednesday he went to the doctor and was told he had Bronchitis.  Friday he seemed to only be getting worse so he went back to the doctor.  Come to find out he had the FLU (yes, we all got flu shots).  So after work on Friday I came home to Ike throwing up everywhere.  It was all too much.  I got a wake up call on how much Ike helps me.   We definitely did not want Brant to get it so we made a decision to send him to my sister's house.  They met me in the middle to pick him up.  We know it was for the best, but we are missing him like crazy!!!  He will be home tomorrow afternoon and I CAN NOT wait!!!!  Ike started feeling much better so we were able to get all the inside Christmas decorating done which is great because it would have been tough with Brant.  It was also nice to have some us time.
Here are the pictures they have sent me....I think he is having the time of his life again.
 We are talking to uncle Jason about this...no no to video games!  :)

 Mimi and Papaw came to visit him
Then he went to there house for a while.  Mimi says watch out American Idol.
 Final stop is Nana and Granddaddy's house.  She will bring him home tomorrow.

life lately

We have had an exciting few weekends.  We got to spend some much needed time with the Wilson's!  God is so good to provide just the opportunity you need at JUST the right time!  We had so much fun hanging out, and Brant loved their children especially Cy.  We may need to work on not pulling hair though. 



This past weekend Aunt Amanda, Mimi and Papaw came to visit!  Brant was of course spoiled rotten.  He has these three wrapped around his little finger already!  We really enjoyed having them.
We didn't get a picture with Aunt Amanda but here is Brant ready for her visit.
 
Randoms of the Sweet baby boy!


Brant had his first fever a few weeks ago.  The daycare called for me to come get him, and when I saw that number come up I panicked a little.  They must have expected it because the first thing they said was Brant is fine.  Poor guy did not feel good, but the doctor could not figure out the issue.  I say teething even though I KNOW the medical professionals say there is no fever with teething.  I got some extra time with him which was nice.  He is definitely a cuddle bug!

He is in LOVE with this fresh food feeder!  But is very particular about what he likes in it. 
Mostly Bananas!

 I could not be more blessed.  Ike is no doubt the best husband and daddy to us.  He loves this baby to pieces!  I am so thankful for how helpful he is, and it is nice that he is so hands on!

Brant's first halloween

Sunday Ike and I took Brant to a fall festival at church, and I am so glad that we did because our city decided to move Halloween to Wednesday and I was out of town at a conference.  I was soooo super sad.  BUT I was thankful that we had dressed him up Sunday.  He was the cutest little giraffe ever!




 
Daddy did good and dressed him in his Halloween outfit, AND sent mommy a picture.
