It was much easier to update the blog before Brady was mobile! But now he's constantly on the move and so are we. Before we get into the rush of the holidays, I just wanted to share some pictures from the last few weeks and most importantly, Brady's first Thanksgiving.
Brady's curiosity is growing and growing, so he's into absolutely everything! I'm starting to worry that he'll think his name is "NO!" :) He is starting to test his words and can identify almost everything by pointing. His first real word was "hot" and he uses it to describe everything, even the snow! We're working on "cold", but that might take awhile. After "hot" came "out" and "up", which sound very similar to "hot", so maybe it's just the same word... but we think he means different things! He is getting very good at animal noises and his favorites are cow, monkey and horse. Hopefully we can get them on video and posted on here soon.
Brady, aka "Young Frankenstein", has been taking steps for the last 6 weeks or so. It started with one or two, then progressed to about 8-10... but as of today, we officially declare that we have a walker! Not 100% sure when you can use that label, but he is choosing walking over crawling as his main form of transportation, so I think that qualifies! We are tickled to see him on the move in the upright position and couldn't be prouder. More trouble lies ahead now, I'm sure!
Hard to believe his first birthday is in less than two weeks. We are excited to celebrate this amazing milestone with our family, as well as Brady's very first Christmas. More pictures to come soon!
