Warning LOTS And LOTS of Braddoc ahead!!!

So as far as bad mom bloggers go I feel like the worst at the moment. I woke up at 4 this morning and could not stop thinking about how much I loved my family and how I could not imagine life with out them. I thought about the little things that made me love each of them and how different my sweet sleeping angel boys were. When I started thinking about Braddoc I realized that I have not postedd many pictures or things about him in a LONG time and so I figured my goal for today would be to post about him and why we love him so much

* He loves to dance and anytime any kind of music or rythm (such as Landon jumping on the bed) comes on or he hears it he immediately goes into jamming mode. Arms up, bouncing up and down lips pursed in a kissing mode. It does not matter where we are or what it is the rythm always takes him over.

* He idolizes his big brother, he thinks that every thing he does is sooooo cool and will just watch him for hours he always says "Woooooowwww" of "Whhhooooaaaa" when Landon does anything.

* He can now walk after 17 months he is finally walking and he is an old pro at it.

* He is a perfectionist, he does not like to do something till he has perfected it. He will sit forever trying to figure something out and is so patient when it comes to learning he does not get frustrated quickly like Landon does, he will take his time until he has perfected it or figured it out.

*When he really wants love he will either lay his head on your lap or on some piece of furniture or lay down on the floor and be so quiet, he will do this for a few seconds and then look up to see if you are watching and if you are he will do it again until you give him love.

*He loves to do something over and over again once he has learned it. Like going up and down the stairs once he mastered it (two times of trying) he started to go up and come back down over and over for about an hour.

* He does not like messes if he spills his snacks he will sit and maticulously put them all back in his bowl, sticking his tongue out the whole time in consentration. Its very precious to watch.

*He loves baths and LOVES bubbles.

* If he is trying to be silly or is throwing a pretend fit to get your attention he will look straight at you but then move his eyes till he is looking out the corners of them and then get this sly grin and if its a fit then he will do it look back at you and do it again with this fake pout.

*He LOVES to eat and is the last one at the table, he always finishes off Landons left overs (because Landon likes to share) and then as soon as he gets down he is under the table looking for more.

* We found out he is allergic to milk and he has been very good about not getting jealous of what Landon can have and what he cant.

* He loves to play in the toliet and put whole rolls of toliet paper in there and on one very lovely occassion he figured out how to flush is down the toliet along with a bunch of Landons poo, yes that was lovely to stick my hand in and try to pull out so the toliet would not be backed up.... and he always thinks its the greatest to play in the toliets Landon has not flushed..... oh Braddoc why must you do such naughty things. :O)

* He is not a dare devil, he waits to have something down before he tries but once he learns to climb something he is climbing everything. He likes to move the stool around the house and climb on it to reach things and pull food off the counter because obviously my millions of meals and snacks are not enough.

* He loves to talk and will jabber constantly. He will also look at you very seriously point his finger up and tell you something very seriously then nod his head and say "Ahhhh?" He has said many words perfectly like: Juice, Sleep, More, Eat, Snack, bad boy, Play, Go, Milk, binkie, and Sorry, but then has NEVER EVER said them again. The only words we get on a constant basis are: Mommy, Aurie, Landi, Braddy (braddoc), baby, Hi, bye, yeah, and Occasionally Daddy (noah is usually mommy and I am Aurie).

He idolizes his big brother
He loves to rearrange the pantry, its funny to see where he moves things too.
Oh Landon you are soooo cool.

Mom listen to me!!!!!
He LOVES Corn and will bring me cans of corn to eat.
When Landons not around and he can just lounge watch a Baby Einstein and drink juice he is in heaven.
He loves to entertain. When he was first learning to walk he would walk a few steps and then purposely throw himself flat on the floor and lay down and then see if you were watching, standing up take a few more steps and do it again, laughing the whole time.

He loves to be mobile and to run away from you as fast as he can.

Sometimes he loves to cuddle and so at least two or three times a day he will come to cuddle and will cuddle for a long time giving lots of hugs and kisses and just lay on your shoulder but when he is done he is done and you better let him move on to his next "mission".

He LOVES pasta of any kind. He does not like to leave any noodle untouched. I know if I am making pasta to make a ton for left overs because he will eat them like crazy.

He pointing and telling us about something very important im sure.

Dancing and getting down with his dad, Im sure you can see exactly where he gets his moves from.

Just hanging out with the brother. Like how each one has a sock, he will find random socks and bring them to us to put on him.
My handsome loving boys before church. Braddoc loves to give hugs to everyone especially Landon and babies.

He loves to hide in the cabinets, under bins, behind doors anywhere he thinks is funny.

Learning how to work out at a very young age. He is so much more a daddies boy then Landon every was.
Again Landon is just super cool.

He loves trains just as much as his big brother.
He loves to play dress up and always has something crazy and silly on. The front of his shirt is soaking wet because he loves to drink from big boy cups and then when he is done slip it so he can play in it.

Always happy and smiling with those big beautiful eyes.
Discovering a new toy....not mommies favorite might I add.

This one is one in a million and we are so blessed to have him in out life. He was at kind of a developmental road block so to speak until Noah got home when he is 14 months and in the last 3 months he has grown so fast, learning to talk, walk, crawl, run, climb, eat on his own, explore and become such an amazing child with this huge personality. I am so blessed to have such an amazing child and am greatful every day that my Father in Heaven has intrusted me with such an amazing spirit.

I can't believe my little baby has grown up so much! He is so special though, and you can see it in his eyes, they are so bright. Makes me wish I could hear his brain working, I bet that would be enlightening. :)
