December Happenings...

I am a horrible blogger. I have come to terms with it! I aspire to be like my dear friend Jen, although I know that is not even possible! Instead...if you would like to have the most up-to-date info on me, you can check my facebook. I find one line status updates and mass picture uploads so much easier to handle...especially since Brody can tear my house apart in the time it takes to type 2 sentences! I hope all is well with everyone and that you all have a wonderful and blessed Christmas season! Love to you all!Brody's first letter to Santa...hand delivered by the stud himself!Brody's first snow of the winter season and Appalachian Arts and Crafts Festival! He doesn't know it yet, but he got two beautifully handmade trucks!

Brody's first encounter with Mr.Claus Morehead's Hometown Holiday.
Making cookies at Kourtney's! He had so much fun with the kids!Brody showing off his teeth and two-sided personality!Brody getting ready to look at the lights at the Southern Lights display held yearly at the Kentucky Horse Park.
Attempting to take some holiday card photos at Kourtney's and failing miserably. Kris and I were in them too and I deleted ALL OF THEM! lol! We'll try again later!
Eating some grub at the ward Christmas party! Tons of food, friends, and fun!
Brody very upset over meeting Santa the second time around! (Santa being played by a dear old family friend!)

Family Pics

Kourtney was a fabulous sister and took some pictures of us the other day. They are a late gift to my mother-in-law! I don't know what was harder...corralling the older Barnett boys or getting Brody to smile! Regardless, I think they turned out great! Here are a few...

7 month check up

Well our little guy went to the doc yesterday, a new pediatrician that we absolutely LOVE! Her name is Brandy Fouch and she is in Mt.Sterling! So excited to have a real pediatrician for him and to get sane answers to our questions.

Brody is growing like a weed and all is well! He weighed in at 25lbs 3 oz and is 30 inches long! He is in the 99th percentile for both height and weight, which is great with me!

He got three shots, cried for about a minute and then was my sweet, happy boy the rest of the day! I am so lucky! He really is the best kid!

Ten things I need to do...

I'm a huge list maker...just ask my husband! They are everywhere! In fact, Kourtney joked the other day that I could use the back of one of her envelopes to make another one... I write them on everything! And typically I complete about 7/8 of them and then create a new one! However, there are ten items on my list that desperately need to be done, but I'm putting off doing! I am hoping that creating a blog list, I'll feel a bit more motivated to do them! Yeah right!

1. Put together shelving for office
2. Wipe down all the baseboards in the house
3. Organize the master closet
4. Hang clock in office
5. ORGANIZE/COMPLETE office. It is 3/4 of the way done...just dreading the last part
6. Taxes
7. Mop Kitchen Floor
8. Paint bedroom furniture
9. Buy a new cell phone
10. Do a thorough thorough cleaning of master bathroom...again. (I feel like I do this all the time!)

Let you know how it goes! lol!

And yet again...

You would think that with my history of costumes, playing dress-up, photo shoots, etc... I would be the one to continually inflict my son with these ridiculous get-ups. But is actually my dear sweet hubby! This happens to be his all time favorite. One day Brody will exact revenge...that is one thing I am sure of!

Our little sitter

So crazy to think that just a few months ago he couldn't do anything even close to this! What a big boy!

Old School

The pajamas Brody is modeling are old...and I don't mean 2 years old! My mom bought like 6 pairs of these way back in 1972. All 8 kids wore them repeatedly, and now all of the grandchildren have had their turn! We almost forgot to put Brody in them, and if we had waited any longer, he would have broken the snaps getting them on! Now that is some quality fabric/craftsmanship!

Just a few pictures from a recent boating adventure! We love going to the lake and Brody absolutely adores the water! We put him in a little covered crab, and he just floats along, content and mellow! We are so lucky to have a boat and live ten minutes from such an amazing lake! The whole family has a great time on the water! Nothing better!

Brody meet Brody!

Brody and I traveled to Columbus, OH two weeks ago to visit some dear friends, Jen, Tyson, and Brody! Brody and Brody had never met, so we ventured north, had a few play dates, ate some nummy food and took some silly pictures! It was so fun to meet the new little guy and to see how different yet adorable both little boys are! Hopefully the boys, who are only a few months apart in age, will be friends for life!

Sleepy boy

Brody has fallen asleep multiple times clinging to his carseat toys and I just happened to snap a few pictures of this occurence. He held onto it for over an hour!
Brody also loves to sleep with his hand over his head. He does this when he finishes nursing, when he is in his crib, swing, just about anywhere! Being his momma, I think it is absolutely darling!

Dad's little ball player

A friend of the family got Brody this t-shirt when he was born. We were planning on having him wear it when he was a bit older, but his large size prevented this. We barely got it on him for this photo! So cute though! Maybe one day he'll be a studly ball player like his dad!

Happy 5 months!

This little guy is 5 months old! Can you believe it? I can't! Time flies when you're having fun...or should I say, time flies when you are changing poopy diapers and waking up at all hours of the night! lol! We love you Brody!
