Trip to Nana and Papa's House



My aunt Julie was in town from Bloomington, IL this weekend. The Bowers and the Bacots came over to Nana and Papa's to visit.

Baby James

After a very long labor, Sarah Beth and Nathan Smoter welcomed baby James Timothy to the world on February 16th. This is the first picture that we've taken of our baby boys together; I'm sure there will be many more to come.

Houston, We Have a Creeper!




video
Brady's been really irritated with his inability to move forward. He could roll and push himself backwards, but never forward. Taylor's been working with Brady on this crawling gig. We prop him up on all 4's (see photo above). We also spend time holding his tummy up, so he can practice using his arms and legs to scoot, etc. Today is the first time that I've seen him really move forward without assistance, so I pulled out the ol' video camera. Way to go little buddy!

Prepping for PJ's


Sweet Sleeping Baby

Peek-a-Boo

Santa brought this toy to Brady for Christmas. We were playing peek-a-boo with the door. The pic with the door closed is funny because you can see both of Brady's eyes peeping through the red shape sorter.

Happy 5th Birthday Brianna!





Brianna got a cool Hanna Montana guitar for her birthday. Luke laughed and danced along; I can't believe how grown up he's looking. Megan and Brianna introduced Brady to the Bumble Bee song; he was quite intrigued. Brady also had a few good laughs with his Pappaw.

First Aggie Basketball Game








On Saturday we went to the Aggies vs. Iowa State basketball game in College Station with our friends Thomas and Megan. Before the game we went to Los Nortenos in Bryan. Brady sat in a restaurant high chair for the first time and did quite well (we knew he would because the one at home is very similar).
Brady was featured on the jumbotron twice before the game started. He was jumping and laughing - so cute. He fell asleep about half way through the game, but woke up happy. The Aggies won by 18 points; it was a good time had by all.
