Day 347: 12/14
Happy 11 months, Baby Boy! You are so precious to us. We love you.

Day 346: 12/13
Brant's First picture with Santa. I was nervous about Brant being scared of Santa, but he did really good. Super calm because he didn't know what to think about the whole idea!! Of course, we had to go to Bass Pro to meet him. I think Andrew wants to keep with that tradition, because we shopped for over an hour afterwards. ha ha

Day 345: 12/12
Mommy and Daddy were able to get away for a little lunch date and Brant got to spend time with Cheryl and Abby all to himself. He loves puppy-dogs. He says "Ruff Ruff" over and over.

Day 332: 11/29
This boy loves I am talking loves toothbrushes. When he sees Andrew and I brush our teeth, he thinks he just has to have one too. He is so intrigued by it. I think it feels good on his gums too. So Brant has his very own toothbrush.

Day 331: 11/28
I love hanging out with my DADDY! He is sooo much fun! It feels good to be home again.

Day 330: 11/27
Just hanging out in Daddy's office waiting on him after church. This paint can made the perfect little seat. I could eat him in this outfit.

Day 329: 11/26
Brant learned how the horsie goes from Gigi. If you ask him he will click his tongue. It is adorable. It makes me so proud of him when he learns new things! So We had to take Brant to go visit The Burkhart's horses. I think he was overwhelmed by how big they were! He cried a little, but loved it when they would shake their head up and down. We told Brant they were saying "YES," which he can do now too.

I have been working on a Birthday Banner for a very special little boy to have at his 1st birthday and every birthday after that! I love the thought of starting traditions. I love how it turned out.

Day 305: 11/1
We can not let him out of our sight! He will shake and shake the gate because he wants to go upstairs all by himself. He is such a stinker! ;)
I see you!! Big Boy! ha ha He is keeping us on our toes.

And the Scarbroughs were Mommy and Daddy's favorite stop! They know us too well! :)

Day 303: 10/30
Enjoying what's left of nice weather in 2011. Brant will stay on a blanket and not crawl onto the grass. Seriously. Goes to the edge of the blanket and stops. It's like he knows that's what his Mommy wants him to do. :)
