Choo Choo Brennan's TWO!

We celebrated Brennan's birthday March 10 and March 12. All the Grandparents made it for the BIG #2! On his ACTUAL birthday we thought we would give him the Red Robin experience, waiters singing, shake and a balloon. He loved it! Saturday, we has a Choo Choo party with a few friends.

Preparing for Brady

If you have not got the word, our new baby boy will be Brady Kristopher Colt. He is actually due TODAY! But, has yet to grace us with his presence. Grandma Martin is on a cruise, so she hopes he keeps on cooking until she returns and is more in touch. We don't feel too bad for her soaking up the sun in the Bahamas!

Brennan has been an amazing big brother already. He loves to talk about Brady! He easily gave up his 'baby' room and loves the idea that it is now Brady's. He even talks to him: "come out Brady, play baseball Brennan!". He has also been helping in the preparations.

KK & RyRy

Brennan will be gaining an Uncle in the near future, Krista and Ryan are engaged!! The Colts are sooo excited for them. They make an amazing couple. And, Brennan LOVES RyRy, super PLUS. Let the planning begin. It looks like it will be a summer wedding, and yes, we are talking 2011!!!!

Baby Brother

Ok, Ok, it has been a while! And, almost everyone knows by now, that Brennan will be gaining a brother this Spring (April 7...maybe). It has been hard to remember how soon that will be, and, if you noticed how long it has been since I last blogged...I have been a little busy.

The pregnancy has been great, almost as easy as the last one...except for the part where I have to take care of a toddler! But, really, I forget sometimes. Although, now, it is more glaringly obvious (note my belly pic from weeks ago).

Toddler Days....

Brennan is truly the little toddler, now! Active as ever, full of personality, and knows just what he wants. As these recent days are marked by some of the cutest memories: singing ABC's, getting in hitting stance with the baseball bat, saying all kinds of words (bubbles, whats that, bowl, please, and many more), cheers-ing, dancing to the beat, playing hide'n'go seek, going down the big slide all by himself, to name a few....Brennan also has his moments of 'expressing' himself ;). Brennan has gotten himself into a few 'time-outs' for aggressive behavior and has experienced natural consequences for being the dare-devil that he is (as if that stopped him, anyways!). What a BOY!! He is pretty good about telling us what he wants, whether it is sign language (he knows a few, mostly 'more'), words, sounds or pointing...but patience hopefully is around the corner (ya, right!).

Growing up!

Yes, I know it has been a while. I am down to the 'every-other-month' blog, no more monthlies. And, lucky for you, I am maxed out at work and can't do one other thing besides blog about my son!! He is so funny now. He is talking it up and starting some obsessions, bananas and toothbrushes are his latest! He says, nana, gentle, bye-bye, gigi, medicine, moon, all done, and probably others I have not understood. And for those multi-syllabic words like 'medicine' and 'gentle' they are only clear enough to the care-givers ear :) Brennan is starting to interact with the kids at daycare more, hugging them and even plopping himself on the 3 year old's laps! He climbs (time to take him out of the crib), runs and re-arranges furniture just how he likes it. He is also an eater. 1/2 banana is NOT enough, must be a whole. He wants to try all of our food and is working on using a is like a battle zone when he gets finished serving himself. Thanks to all the eating he has put on quite the belly, and is growing out of the 12 month clothes.

These last months, Brennan went to Arizona for Spring Training. He was a great little traveler, even when he got really sick with a fever. We had a layover both ways and that always made it a long day! Easter was a lot of fun, we went to family friends and had a hunt for the two 1-year old babies. Baby Charlie got the Golden Egg ;(. We have had many trips with the bike trailer to the park for some fun on warm days. Can't wait for summer!!!
