3 Months

Brady is now 3 months old and SOOOO adorable!! Look at that face!

Everyone Loves Brady

We had Thanksgiving with my family last week and everyone was happy to see and hold Brady. He seemed to like all the attention and didn't mind being passed around at all.

Brady looking wide-eyed at one of his toys, obviously very interested in it.

Wonderful Daddy

Randy is such a wonderful father and I am extremely thankful for all that he does with the boys. Every Saturday he and Dawson enjoy some quality time together and allow me to have some time to myself. Once or twice a month, Randy will take Dawson out for a really fun day at Incredible Pizza. And he spends a lot of time at home with us, playing with Dawson and Brady. He is a very involved dad.

What I really appreciate lately is how much Randy helps with Brady at night and in the early morning hours. Brady is not a good sleeper and continues to wake up about every hour and a half or two hours, with only an occasionally 3 hour sleep period. It is extremely exhausting to wake up so frequently to feed Brady and then be alert and playful all day with the boys. Thankfully, Randy helps out and allows me to get a little extra sleep. He'll frequently take Brady when he wakes up in the early morning and lets me sleep in. And the other day he took care of Brady ALL NIGHT. This morning I thought Brady had slept for 5 hours, only to find out that he had woken up twice in that period and Randy had fed him and taken care of him.

I just want everyone to know how wonderful and kind Randy is, how much he helps out with the boys, and how thankful I am for him.

Sweet Baby

My two sweet boys.


Brady has been trying valiantly to get his thumb in his mouth recently. He's done it a few times and is soothed by the sucking. It looks like he'll be a thumb-sucker like Dawson.

Houston Zoo

Last weekend we went to visit Randy's parent and stopped by the Houston Zoo on our way home. It was a beautiful fall day and we enjoyed seeing the animals and playing in the children's zoo area.

My Favorite Things About Brady

Brady is such a sweet baby and amazing in so many ways. Here are some of my favorite things about our little bundle of joy:

  • His great big eyes.
  • His big, open-mouthed, toothless smile.
  • Hearing him talk to us. His ooh's and ahh's are so precious!
  • How much he loves to look in the mirror and smile at his image.
  • The way he grasps onto us when we hold him. He'll put his arm around us and grab onto our shirt and hold on tight.
  • How much he loves to be held and cuddled.

Smiling at Dad
