Rudolph of the Reindeer...

Bradyn has been cracking me up lately, so I needed to post some of these funny things so I don't forget them!

First off, this morning I went to get Bradyn out of bed and he says, "Mama, I want to play while you workout".  Upon first reading this, you may be thinking...what's so funny about that...Well, first of all, I NEVER workout!  Second of all, the first time and LAST time that Bradyn played while I worked out was probably last year on New Years Day when I made a resolution to lose weight.  So...does this mean it's time for me to make another resolution if my 3 year old son is telling me it's time to workout!  Ugh!  I guess I've had too many holiday treats.

Another funny conversation we had yesterday...
Mama:  Let's go potty Bradyn.
Bradyn:  I only need to go pee, my poop is sleeping.
5 minutes later after going pee, washing, and drying hands..
Bradyn:  Mama, my poop is awake now.
Back to the bathroom...

A conversation with Grandma Taresh (who, by the way, knows my cat that I've had for at least 13 or 14 years)
Bradyn:  This is my cat.  Her name is Nee Nee
Bradyn (while petting her):  She is getting old...she pees a lot.

And finally, Bradyn's rendition of Rudolph the Red-Nosed-Reindeer:
      "You know Dasher and Dancer and Answer and Woodson
        (wait...Woodson?  Doesn't Woodson  play football for 
         the Green Bay Packers?)
       But you call the most famous reindeer all
       Rudolph OF the Reindeer had a very shiny nose, Mama
       you sing it"...

Christmas Has Begun...

We are spending Christmas in Wisconsin this year with Grandma and Grandpa Lee and we are preparing for our trip (Bradyn told me he needs to start packing - even though we aren't leaving for several days).  Because we will be gone, we decided that he could open his presents from Grams and Gramps Taresh now.  Grams Taresh came down for the weekend and we started the Christmas festivities.  We made sugar cookies...

Well...Mama and Grams made sugar cookies and Bradyn made "balls" for throwing in the air and what was supposed to be "Pizza Pie" that Bradyn kept calling "Bake a Pie". 
Then we opened presents...
 Go Badgers!

And had to immediately play with them (Bradyn's new "shaving" kit).  Bradyn had fun with Grams and cousin Hillari and couldn't quite understand why they had to go.  At least he has his "Rescue Pack" to keep him busy until the next round of gifts!

2 Years...

In October, we celebrated our Gotcha Day!  Two years ago three lives were forever changed, we became a family.  Each of us has grown in so many ways that would not have been possible without the others.  If you have ever met Bradyn, you now how infectious his spirit is.  It is not possible to look at him without becoming drawn to him; family, friend, or stranger...people fall in love with him.  Mike and I are the blessed ones to be able to call him our son.  Mike and Bradyn share a special bond that is impenetrable...it's almost as if they speak their own language and they most definitely share lots of giggles and laughs.  Bradyn has become just like Mike...just the other day Bradyn said, "Hey Pop, this is how you walk".  Then he proceeded to show Mike how he walked...they were identical!  Bradyn looks up to Mike and idolizes him and Mike loves and adores Bradyn beyond words.  Bradyn and I share our special bond as well and any concerns of attachment have been laid to rest for a long time now.  Despite the fact that he is 3 years old wearing 5T clothing, he is still and will always be my precious baby.  He knows how to melt my heart!  I don't think any of us could imagine our lives without the others and for that we are so very grateful.
