What you missed

Well Brady learned to walk. He can even run and jump now. He turned one, and then went on to turn two. Many times he thinks he is a frog and ribbits around the house. He is putting together some short sentences like "I want more Word World Mommy." Word World is currently his cartoon of choice. If I would let him he would watch it all day. Many times when I turn it off, it results in him throwing a fit. He gets over it.

1st Birthday

2nd Birthday

Also since our last post we have added a new member to the family. Sophia Grace entered this world on May 26th. We have really enjoyed her. She is sweet and her big brother says she is "coot"=cute. We are slowly adjusting to two children. We have had such great help. My mom came and stayed one week, then my sister came the next week. Brady has been going up to the farm on the weekends to stay with Grandma and Papa. We have also had several people bring us food, so we are truly blessed by all the extra help we have received.

I cannot promise to be the best blogger but I will try to update more than once a year. Hope you are all having a great summer. We currently have not big plans. We will just be hanging out around here. Come visit if you would like!

We're Back

Sorry Mom, Meme and Lindsey. I assume you are the only ones who still check this blog! You would think we didn't have much going on or that Brady is not doing anything exciting since I never post anything. It is just the opposite. We have a had a lot going on and blogging just hasn't been on the radar. Brady is doing great. He is now 10 months old, almost 11 really. At last count he had at least 12 teeth that I can see. Yes that includes his one-year molars. Apparantly he is advanced when it comes to growing teeth. Who knew? He is also taking steps. He is not real confident yet, but will take a few steps at a time before sitting down and crawling...or just face planting. All-in-all things are going good around here. We are all just waiting on cousin Ty to get here to play with us. Here are some pics from this past weekend up at the farm.

6 Months

Well, almost 7 actually, but I did not give you the 6 month update. Brady did great at his 6 month check-up. There were tons of sick children there, but luckily he was all well. He took his shots like a champ while reading the book that the Dr. had given him. He was 19 1/2 pounds and 27 inches. He has really slowed down on his growth, but is still in the 75th percentile. He can sit up all by himself and is starting to crawl. He can army crawl just about anywhere he wants to go and is working on coordinating crawling on all fours. He still just has the four teeth, but I am guessing there are more on the way with the copious amounts of drool and chewing that are going on! He eats anything and everything but has become partial to applesauce. I just buy the big jar at the store and don't mess with buying babyfood applesauce. All-in-all he is doing great and we are having a lot of fun with him right now.

A couple of weekends ago we celebrated Brittany's birthday here in Abilene so most of our college group was in town. It was fun to see Brady and Crawford together, we missed Coleman though. Crawford was absolutely precious! It was also good to see everyone else. I have such a great group of friends. I have no idea what my life would possibly be like without them. Even when I am feeling aweful, they make me laugh. Thanks girls!

This past week we went to Houston for Texas Association of School Psychologists conference. I am on the board so I had to be there early to help get everything ready. Since Brady is not weaned, he got to come too. Lindsey came with us and was an absolute life saver. I really enjoy going to the conference every year, but when you are working it, it can be even more fun, but also more demanding and tiring. Ultimately we did have a great time. We used Brady behind the registration table at times so that people wouldn't get ugly. You can't be ugly around a baby. He was like our mascot for the week. We should have made him a TASP onesie. Ultimately it was Lindsey though that took care of him all week. I was only there for some feeding purposes. They had a good time, as always. She even got him and Ty(her baby boy to be) matching outfits. She is such a good aunt and will be an even better mom.

Next week is ACU's homecoming, so there will be family in for that weekend. I myself will not be attending my club breakfast, but they are going to theirs. It is just too early for me to be social. We may take Brady to the parade though so maybe we will see some old friends there.

"Mom, Dad and I are talking right now. Do you mind?"

so sweet

Back to school, Back to school

Well the summer is officially over for the Westmoreland's. Before we went back to school though, we went on a shopping trip with Mom-mom and Aunt Lindsey. We had a lot of fun but we were all worn out. Everyone made out pretty well although Mom was worried that Brady only came back with three large bags of clothes! All day shopping trips are a little harder with a 4 month old, but Brady really did pretty well considering.

Brady had his first day of school this past Monday. We were all up and ready to go and we were even on-time. Put that in the record book because it may very well be the last time. Daniel was home in the mornings most of the week and was a big help in getting Brady ready. When he is not around the help in the morning I do not know what we will do. He assures me that it will be ok, he apparently used to bottle feed 15 calves in the morning before he went to school...I assured him that Brady is surely more of a handful than 25 calves j/k. Brady did alright all week. He is not sleeping as much at daycare and is pretty worn out by the time we get home. I think being around the other babies has been good for him though, because he is interacting more and is already trying to crawl and scoot around like others in his class. The only bad thing about daycare, he already has his first snotty nose. No fever or anything like that, just very stopped up. I can't wait for cold season! I also did ok with Brady's first week at school. It helps that he is across the parking lot. I have already gone over and fed him and it was very convenient. I had to go feed him because I forgot his milk. I have a feeling that knocks me out of the running for mother-of-the-year.

Anyway, work is going well for me. I really do enjoy my job and I am going to get to do some exciting things this year. Exciting for me, I am sure no one else will see it this way, but what can I say, I am a nerd. This should catch everyone up for now. I hope everyone had a great week!

Oh I forgot, we started peas this week. Brady likes them but gets a funny look on his face when I switch him from cereal to peas, yet he still wants more of them. We will go onto butternut squash next. Stay tuned.

I have pictures but blogger is hating me right now. I will try to post some later.
