They Grow Up So Fast

I am learning how to get video camera footage onto the blog (our digital camera's movies don't have sound and aren't great quality). In the process I came across old clips of Brennan. He is 8-9 months old in these. His face really is reminding me of Asher's. I'd say they look related at least. I'm gonna try to find some pictures of Brennan at 2 months for comparison.

I believe Brennan is actually about 3 months in the firt picture and he's 6 months in the second one.

Isn't He SOOOO Cute?


Just wanted to add some pictures of Asher... I know, I know, it's been a while.

Things are going very well. Asher's developing more of a schedule. By that I mean he's staying asleep for real naps rather than 2 min cat-naps all day. Also, he'll stay asleep even when his swing or car seat stop moving. Hurray! Progress!

Brennanism

Each night when Brian gets home from work I relay the day's Brennanisms. Here's one of today's...

After a meal at the table Brennan is asked to carry his dishes to the counter. He's pretty good about it usually. If I'm in the kitchen he'll hand them over to me without fail, and if I'm not there he usually sets them on the counter. Tonight I finished eating and got up to get a crying Asher, leaving Brennan at the table to finish his dinner. A few minutes later when he joined me in the living room I reminded him that he needed to take his plate to the counter. His response?

Laughing, he said "Ha ha, that's funny... that's a funny joke."

Brennan makes me laugh. What a kid. (The other day I told him that he is quite a kid, so now he reminds me by saying "I'm quite a kid.") For the record, he not only carried his plate to the counter, but he carried mine over too. Cute and nice... now that's a catch for some lucky lady some day.

7 Interesting Things

On her blog, Angie "tagged" me to tell 7 interesting things about myself. This is harder than it sounds... at least to me. Let's see...
  1. I have a scar on my eyeball from hay fever. It's a permanent red area.
  2. A dream of mine has always been to play my french horn for broadway and/or a movie.
  3. I like to hide in the closet or different locations and scare Brian. Sometimes he knows I'm hiding, sometimes not. Either way, you should see the look on his face when I jump out!
  4. I've taken a total of 6 years of french and can't remember hardly any.
  5. I won't let Brian look at or touch my right leg. I call it my "bad leg"
  6. My dream family consists of having 4 children and adopting 4 children.
  7. My friend and I played hooky one day in 4th grade and got away with it. That's right, we were 9! We planned it for about a week, scouting our the perfect hiding spot, assigning various snacks to bring, packing board games, getting notes in a devious fashion to excuse our absences, and even returning on different days so as to avoid suspicion. (My friend played sick the day afer)

Well, there's 7. To my blogger friends, TAG, YOU'RE IT!
