Brayden was a little blob still when 2011 began and he has grown into a crazy, happy, energetic little toddler. He gets more amazing with each day. We just love him so much. Onto our year recap in photo form (faves)!
I'm not linking to old posts. Sorry.
Thank god, I got a new camera. Some of these pictures are REALLY bad.
We celebrated my birthday!
He started teething at 4 months old.
He also started baby food. He was pretty chunky and would get stuck in his Bumbo. ;)
He could roll onto his belly but not off. For a whole month he would scream super loud in his crib because he couldn't get off his belly. He slept in his swing quite a few times in January.
Look at dat bewwy. Awwwww.
Learning to sit for longer. He sat up the first time in December.
Cabbage Patch Kid.
He leaned over and grabbed this off the coffee table when I was in the kitchen and I came back to this. LOL.
When he discovered my phone and he never left it alone after that.
Our one year wedding anniversary.
First time in a highchair at Moon River.
His rocking car. :)
First time he actually "made" me buy him something. My sister let him play with this at Dollar Tree. He got hysterical when we tried to put it down. LOL. It stayed blown up for months.
First time riding the present my FIL had gotten him for Christmas.
Trying sippy cups and failing. He always tried to lay down with them.
Harper, Diana and Cassie came to visit!
Rolling everywhere into everything.
He could finally almost reach his feet. His arms were too short and body was too long. LOL.
Mommy, Daddy, doggy and baby went to the waterfront to hang out. :)
We bought a van. We sold it and got his KIA a few months later.
Rolled under his crib.
We went to Elizabeth's first birthday party. He loved the balloons.
We went to the park. :)
First time in a playground swing.
Banana in a masher.
We celebrated St. Patrick's Day and Rj's birthday. :)
He started getting in the crawling position and rocking back and forth. 6 months old.
Brayden swiped some cake.
Tasting cake for the first time.
We (Brayden, Mom, Kristy and I) went to my cousin Dana's baby shower.
He loved baths in March.
Second tooth came right after the first (6 months old)
Yogurt became his favorite food.
Family Funday Sunday at my FIL's.
First time eating crackers. He still loves crackers, any type but especially Ritz.
Getting up in a crawling position and reaching for stuff. Still no crawling.
Trying to get up to a sitting position.
First yogurt bites and he began wearing cloth diapers.
We went to see Amber and Emma. :)
He flipped his mat over. LOL.
He started crawling!
This month the "rocking" feature came off of this because he tipped it sideways.
Rubberband ankles. LOL.
First time in the pool. He was unsure at first but eventually he absolutely loved pools.
Grandma and Kristy came over to swim. :)
Discovered my computer and never left it alone after that.
Sweet notes from my amazing hubby.
This is the month Rj broke his foot at work.
Erica, one of my SIL's came for Easter. :)
Easter pancakes. :) His first pancakes!
Kristy and I's eggs.
He STILL loves that bus.
Working on my mom and my MIL's Mother's Day presents. :)
This month he HATED baths. He screamed with every bath for a solid month. UGH.
Daddy went out of town and Brayden started pulling up! (8 months)
Mommy and baby went for a walk.
Brayden and I flew to Maryland! Our first plane ride. We went to visit my friend Aly. :) This is Tyler. He is 1 month older than Brayden. They had the same due date but Tyler was born a little early.
Bigger than a two year neanderthal? ;)
Pulling up on EVERYTHING.
He didn't like Cotton Candy
Lily loved it.
Aly. :) We stayed there a week before we flew back. Rj, Brayden and I are going to try to go again in 2012.
Playing on his slide!
Still getting used to grass. Ha.

Picnic with Grandma and Jeannie. :)
At Sadie and Carter's birthday. This is Ashley right before her family moved to CA. :/
His first lolly.
Stories with Grandma.
Rj, B and I went to the mall. This is how to distract a baby while you go through Tshirts. ;)
The mall play area.
This bucket was for his birthday party. He loved playing in it.
He did this A LOT.
Cutting his own cast off 2 days before it was getting taken off. OI. He wanted to go on the slide at a party at my FIL's house.

My brother spent the night and mid day he just passed out with Peppy.
Another slide party at my FIL's. (Caitie's bday)
Mall again. :)
I met Casey, another blogger, and her family. We are no longer friends but I miss her and her family. Everything happens for a reason though. It's okay that we are no longer friends. I wish her the best.
Hotdogs became his favorite food. ;)
When he would still wear a hat. Now he puts them on for "play".
Brynna. This is Beth's daughter. I met Beth through Casey and we are still friends. She is really amazing. I'm really thankful she's my friend.
My mom's gf, Jeannie's, birthday!
Standing for a long period of time for the first time the day before his birthday. He walked the day after his birthday.
