Catching up

Wow, I really need to catch up on the blogging huh? Life is great and busy! We are all doing wonderfully! I am keeping super busy with business, and I am so excited to be doing very well this month ! Here are some pictures to catch up by.

 We started eating food. First rice cereal, then sweet potatoes, bananas, peas, avocados, and a teething biscuit.   
 He loves it all!
 We went to a pumpkin patch with Nana and the cousins. 
 Animals, and a corn box. Brady had a blast. 
 5 months old came and went very quickly. 
 He rolled around like a champ at that point, and was scooting a bit. 
 Such a happy baby!
 Brady dressed up as buzz lightyear 
 He had a fun time at school and at our church Harvest Festival
Bryson was an alien. 
 And then we started crawling, at 5 1/2 months! 
 Like real crawling! 
 Brady sang with his preschool at their church service. 
 They had a yummy Thanksgiving Feast. 
 Little weed growing baby turned 6 months old. Without even asking if it is okay. 
 He can get to a side sitting position by himself. And he can even sit for a few minutes by himself, until he crawls away. 
 They are best friends, and truly love each other! 
 Here is the most ridiculous thing! Today we had to put up baby gates, because he is getting really fast.
 He thought this was the perfect time to pull himself up! At just 6 months! HE is trying to stand!
Crazy! And if this was not a trying day enough for me, he also got his first tooth. Baby gates, pulling up, and his first tooth all in one day! Why oh why must they grow!?!
That is just a tid bit of what we have been up to. Hopefully it will not be another month before I post! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

I have been thinking about this for awhile, but I think I am going to unplug a bit. To explain let me share how many things I am currently involved in online. (By the way this post is completely ironic, so if you are thinking that then yes, you are correct.)

  • a personal email
  • a business/blog - proverbs31 life email
  • an other email, gmail account
  • this blog
  • proverbs31 life blog
  • my Jamberry nails website
  • my etsy site
  • My facebook page
  • My proverbs31 life facebook page
  • My jamberry facebook page
  • pintrest
  • google plus account (so lost on this one)
It is a lot. I do not check everything each day but, to check that many things a day is very time consuming. I have realized that I was spending too much time on the computer, so I set a goal of only an hour and a half a day. This seems like a lot, but after emails, and workish stuff, it is not very much time. Slowly time was still increasing.

Yesterday, a friend suddenly lost her dad. I am praying for this family, and I know that they are comforted by God's grace and promise of eternal life.
I am so sad for them but it made me think, something I do not think about enough. 

If something were to suddenly happen to me, and I found myself kneeling before God, being judged for my life, what would I say? Would I say that, no Lord, I did not have time to properly worship you each day because I needed to blog? Would I say that instead of really getting into Your Word, I hurried through my bible study time, so I could send some emails? Would I say, I did not properly train up my children in Your Word because I was too tired to do their bible study time, since I stayed up on the computer the night before?  Unfortunately I won't need to say these things, because they are true. They have happened. I will have to give an account for that time, and it is not good.  
I need to repent for that, and I will change my ways. 
I am not saying that no computer time is what God wants. But I am saying that putting something before God is wrong. It is idolatry, and my idol has been the computer. 

I am going to unplug some. I probably will not be reading many blogs. I will not be getting on pintrest. I will check email and facebook for business stuff. I might blog once a week. I am going to be very strict with my computer time, and do a little detox. 
I want to love the Lord with my whole heart, my whole soul, my whole strength, and my whole mind. I want to be able to account for my time, and I need to change some priority's in my life. There will be an account for both good and bad. I am always growing and I am just so thankful, that God is forgiving, and no matter what always loves me!

Bryson's Dedication

On Sunday, Bryson was dedicated at church. It feels like yesterday that Brady was dedicated!  
 Aren't they precious. It is hard to tell, but I made them matching ties. I love dressing them alike.
 Our happy family. 
 Bryson loves his Gramps. 
 Nana, Gramps, Aunt Jen, and cousin Chelsey were able to make it to support our sweet boy. 
 We have had a lot of babies at church recently. 
 It was such a special day, and we just know that God has amazing plans for his life.

4 months old

Thsi sweet little baby is four months old already! In fact, he was last Monday. He is growing too big too fast.
e adores his brother. He is smiley and coos and "talks". His laugh is so serious, and almost sounds like his cry. He can roll from his back to his stomach very easily.
He is not as good at rolling from stomach to back, but he can if he gets mad enough. He is starting to scoot around, and move a little.
 He sleeps on his right side mostly, or on his stomach, which I do not like of course. He takes a short nap in the morning, but will sometimes sleep for 4 hours in the afternoon, if he needs to catch up!
 His bedtime is 7pm, and he wakes up in between 6:30 am or 7 am. He still wakes up twice in the middle of the night, and immediately expects to be fed and then put back to bed. He sleeps in his crib at, and most times will fall asleep on his own.
He is grabbing for things, and I now have to watch things while holding him. He likes to suck on his socks and toes. As hard as I tired to make him love the pacifier, he gave it up. He has instead started sucking on his fingers.
So now we have one thumb sucker, and one finger sucker. He loves baths, and the exersaucer. He sat in the jumper at church for a good hour the other night. His eyes are still blue, but they are starting to get greener. He is an amazing baby, and just precious!

Happy Baby

Bryson is such a happy baby, all the time. He is rarely upset, and you can almost always get a smile from him.

I was having a not good day, but that face just cheered me up a little bit. I hope it did the same for you. Isn't he the sweetest? How is he 4 months old already?

1st day of Preschool

Last Thursday was Brady first day of preschool. Every day for weeks he would ask if school was today. It was so nice when we could finally say yes!

He loves it! It is amazing, how after one day of preschool he is now longer shy. He will talk to everyone. Crazy, but good.

After his first day, during dinner, we did a little interview. You can tell from the interview what we were having for dinner. I did not prompt him for anything, I wrote down exactly what he said so it was very accurate. I think it will be cute to do again in future years on his firsts days of school.

- What is your name? Brady (Bray -de)
- How old are you? Three (with fingers) he then says 3 months old
- What is your favorite color? Orange
- Who is your best friend? Julien and Jayce
- Favorite animal? Giraffes, Monkeys, and Gorillas
- Who do you want to be when you grow up? The chicken
- What is your favorite movie? Jake and the Neverland Pirates
- What is your favorite book? Clifford book
- What makes you happy? Silly things
-What makes you sad? When Belle and Coco run into my friends house and make me cry (?)
- What is your favorite song to sing? ABC's (and then starts singing, but starts with the letter H)
- What games to do like to play? The Toy Story game

Can not believe that my baby is in school. He has left the nest. But when I pick him up and he runs to me and yells mommy, it melts my heart. We talk about his day, and he is so excited to tell me all about it and I love it. I am sad that my baby is growing up, but he is having a wonderful life and childhood, and what parent wouldn't want that for their child. He is only 3 and I am so proud of him.
