Golfing with Papa for Father's Day

Bradyn's first golf outing. 

Putting on the green.
Sinking his putt.
 Bradyn had a great day celebrating his Papa!  He started the day by making Papa breakfast...well, he tried to help, but got distracted and Mama had to finish.  Then he gave Papa his presents (which he had already told Papa what they were 3 days ago).  He "helped" papa screw some screws with the power drill.  Then it was off to golf.  He had a blast, he is quite a good little golfer! 
   I'm always in awe at the relationship these two have.  Bradyn adores Mike and vice versa.  They definitely have something special and sometimes they are in their own little "Bradyn and Papa" world laughing about some silly thing!  Bradyn doesn't need a "designated day" to let Papa know that he loves him....he lets him know that everyday.

2 Years Ago...

It is hard to believe that it was 2 years ago today when we first met this precious soul!!  It seems like he has been in our lives forever!  I can still remember sitting in the director's office waiting with anticipation and excitement to see his sweet face.  We had spent countless hours staring at his pictures, knowing this was our child.  Then we finally got to meet him and every moment together confirmed that he truly was meant to be in our family.

Big Boy Bed

Well, it was time for us to change the crib into a toddler bed, mainly because I am not strong enough to lift our big guy into his crib, but also because he was ready.  The excitement began on Monday when we started talking about it and we made small changes to the room.  We added a cute lamp that he loves to turn on and off and on and off and so on...  Slowly each day we moved the furniture around and then Friday night was the big night!  Bradyn kept saying "I'm so esscited!"  He even "helped" Papa change the screws (as well as grabbing the wood with a pair of pliers...uh, that part was not so helpful).  Once the change was made we "practiced" when to get out of bed.  Then the big moment came...going to bed.  He truly was SOOOO  "esscited".  Mama and Papa were a little concerned that it may be a long night with him getting in and out of the bed.  But Bradyn shocked us, as always!  He stayed in his big boy bed until we went and got him up this morning!!  Naptime was as equally easy, Bradyn stayed in bed the whole time!  I wonder how long this will last?
