Easter 2014

Brant's little Easter basket just had a few things we knew he would love!  Eggs of course, a packet of balloons, magnets for the fridge, chocolate Easter bunny, and peeps.  He also got a HUGE red ball.  When we brought that in you could see the excitement in his little face.  

Much needed Easter morning nap.
Sweet baby ready for church.
of course he just wanted to play.
Then we went to Carthage for lunch and fun with family.  
Memaw with Brant and Kendal 
I was surprised how much Brant actually got the egg hunting.  Well we pointed them out and he picked them up.  I think because they resemble a ball.  

The grass in his basket took over though and became far more interesting.

Yay!  I threw out all my grass!

He's upset I wouldn't let him eat a rock...mean mommy.
Sweet cousins.
The ride to Carthage was a challenge.  Brant is still not a fan of the car.  He has always and still does scream almost the entire ride unless its over like an hour and a half in which he wears himself completely out.  We have tried the DVD player with a movie and we tried turning him forward which I think only made the situation worse so its back to backwards.  Any other suggestions??
Anyway!  Once we got there our sweet little boy returned.  We all had so much fun.  I wish we were able to get together with them more often.

Just because I think he is so cute!

This is mostly just because I think he is sooo stinkin' cute!  Brant's school is closed on Good Friday so I took off, and we were able to spend the day together!  We went to get his second (and much needed) hair cut and again he did great!!  Then we spent sometime outside playing which he loved!  I just love this little stinker!  

He's not that into selfies
He looks so grown in his little hat.

Who is this toddler???  How can that be our baby?

iPhone dump

I feel so behind on updating.  Here is a little iPhone dump and probably the best way for me to get to up to date.
Brant LOVES balls (and balloons but we call those balls too).  He will bring you the ball and wants you to throw it for him to go get.  Yes, it is much like fetch with a puppy.  He loves this ball pit Mimi got for his birthday.  This ball pit, the bathtub, daddy's boots and the trash can are his "spots".  If we are missing something we always look in these first.  I am certain I have thrown away something important, and our tub looks like an episode of hoarders by the end of the day because of all the randomness he has thrown in it.  

We got a few boo boo's last month.  He threw a toy, tripped over it, and blacked his eye...only my child, and he got bit at school.

My work puts on an addiction school each year.  So I had to be out of town for a week.  Poor Ike...Brant had a reaction to his shots and ended up running 103-104 fever for most of the week so Ike was home with him.  Then of all things the air condition broke on the first VERY warm day.  He did great and handled it better than I would have actually.
Molly and I at the school.  Molly is now the director of the school... whoop whoop!

My lovely co-workers...

Oh we are in the midst of adventures in eating with Brant ...

Don't judge the Cheetos.... Not like he ate them anyway.

This child loves sleeping on daddy!
These two are becoming friends!

Look how grown Brant looks!  

Just for fun!

This boy loves to be outside and loves his car!

Baby Andrews #2 is growing growing!  I am not doing great at updates with this pregnancy, but I will say this one feels very different.  We had an appointment this past week (29 weeks), and they said he is head down and almost 4lbs!  He's a big boy.  I had predicted both of these.  I am not sure we will make it to 40 weeks.  He still has no name at the moment.  We are working on it.
Here is picture from 27 weeks.

Brant's first birthday party

This was the inspiration for Brant's first birthday.  Ike got this outfit for his first birthday from his Aunt Iris.  It has made its way through the family.  When I started thinking about Brant's first birthday I thought it would be fun for him to wear this outfit.  I also love nautical themed big boy rooms so we decided to go with that for his big boy room too. 
 Brant is such a people person.  He just comes alive in groups.  His party was no expectation!  He had a blast!  I will let the pictures tell the story.
A few pre-party pictures

 All four of us  

 Let the fun begin!
 Not so sure..
So daddy gave him a taste...
 and he loved it!
 Sharing with the grandparents...

Love my sweet family

 Ike and I ran to the kitchen to shove down a cupcake
 Present time!
 He just ate up being the center of attention

My mamaw!  I just love her!!!

I tried to plan the party so it was directly following nap time.  Well of course that was a big fail.  He ended going to sleep early and getting up early.  Which resulted in this ending to the party!  Oh well.  It's his party and he will cry if wants to!  :)
We are so thankful for all of our family and friends that came to help us celebrate Brant's first year!  I wish I had gotten pictures of everyone.  He is definitely one loved boy!
