New Tricks

So Brady is now almost 6 months old and he's added a few new tricks to his bag.  He can sit up for a few minutes.  He can move anywhere around a room.  He's started eating rice cereal, although not too well.  Most of it still ends up on his chin.  And unfortunately, he is sleeping worse at night than he was 2 months ago.  I think he likes to eat more at night than during the day because during the day he usually has someone distracting because Joey or Daphne (mostly Joey) stands right behind Brady and screams or cries for me, so then he turns his head and doesn't want to eat anymore.  It's getting old.  We have all gone through colds this week (except Kevin) - we hope he stays well. 
Joey is starting to potty train, even going tinkles in the potty a few times.  Oh, how we look forward to only having one in diapers again :)

Brady is 4 months old

Brady turned 4 months old two weeks ago.  I think he's going through a growth spurt.  He is starting to outgrow his 6 month clothes and we've recently had to go up a diaper size.  He is just getting so big - watch out Kori, I think he's trying to keep up with his bigger cousin.
And today, he officially has a tooth coming in.  He's been very crabby and waking up frequently at night.  Say goodbye to the gummy smile.  I have mixed feelings about that.  Excited he's passing a new milestone but sad that my baby is growing up.

The Columbus Zoo

This past Monday, both Daphne and Kevin had off, so we visited my parents in Columbus at Jack Hanna's zoo.  That zoo is BIG!! with lots of animals.  I liked the kangaroo exhibit - we were actually in their habitat, they could jump all around us.

Katie & Mike's wedding

We'll try this again. I've been working on this post since Sunday and for some reason the pictures don't want to appear, so I just decided to scrap the other post and start fresh and it is still taking forever for the pictures to appear. Saturday we went to Katie (Kevin's cousin) and Mike's wedding at the Cincinnati zoo. While the weather was a little chilly for the outdoor ceremony (at least it didn't rain!), we all had a blast. Especially the little dancer in the house who got to spend time with two cousins that she loves hanging out with - Caroline and Brooke. And Joey had a good time - probably because we let him eat whatever he wanted - bread, cookies, goldfish crackers, buckeyes and cake - what could be better than that?

Fire House Open House

Yesterday, we went to the Sprintfield Township Firehouse open house and the kids had fun besides Kevin trying to scare them - well, Joey gets scared from you-name-it - the person dressed as a Dalmation, the ATV they could sit on, the Fire Engine, dressing up in firemen's gear, holding onto the fireman hose, etc.  And then, Kevin pretended he was going to make Daphne go on the big ladder coming from the top of the Fire Engine, she was not very happy with that.  They both survived and did agree they had a good time.

How do you like Joey's face?  Poor guy!
 Daphne dressed like a fireman - that equipment was heavy!

Funny times

To change things up around here, we have been trying some different things.
Eating a picnic outside.
 Playing in laundry baskets!?!
 The first of many conversations between the boys about trains.
 This should have been in the last post - sleeping in strange positions - on the couch...

Joey's Big Boy Bed

Last week we moved Joey from his crib into a "Big Boy Bed".  We've been psyching him up for it for awhile.  He is always excited to sleep in it and has stayed in his bed most nights.  One day for nap, I took his picture.  If I had only found the camera quicker - he had the train in his hand and his butt in the air.   What is it with kids sleeping in weird positions?  Kevin found him with his head hanging off the bed the other day.

Joey and Daphne's bedroom - both of the kids have new-to-them beds (thanks to Maisie - we got another mattress and box springs) and my old bed frame. 
We're working on getting "Big Boy Sheets and bedspread" for Joey - for now he either has the option of purple flowers or Little Mermaid - and even though Kevin says purple is a manly color - I think he needs some better boy choices!
