Life 365: Living Each One Out...June 2 -11

Day 153: Brant is a member of the Shelby County Books from Birth. He receives one free book every month. I know wonderful, right? ! This is his first one. The Little Engine That Could by Watty Piper. Day 154: Brant has started sleeping in his crib upstairs at nap time and at night. Yes. I said at night, too. I finally did it. It was time. However, we do sleep upstairs in the guest bedroom. In the room next to his. It still counts. Totally. Our little baby is growing up.
Anyway, Puppy Dog will totally keep him company. :) This is how we found him this morning.
All I have to say is - Prrrrrrrecious.
Day 155: Today we had a picnic with my new Mommy Group. Andrew dressed Brant while he was napping. He was soooo tired, that he never even woke up. That used to happen a lot when he was first born, but not so much anymore. ha! I love how he has his hand stuck under his overalls in this picture. It reminds me of an old farmer! ha ha! Something my Pa did ALL the time!
Day 156: Brant's Baby Dedication at New Hope Christian Church, Bartlett, TN. We love our Church home and are so thankful that we get to raise Brant there. It's a bonus that Andrew gets to serve as the Middle School Minister there, too! There were soooo many babies dedicated with Brant that were born in the last year. We hope he gets to know them all very well and their sweet parents.
We wish we could make time stand still....we are already noticing how fast time flies by. We love our baby boy so much.
Dear God,
As Brant's parents, we commit ourselves completely to you. Give us wisdom to guide him through life on this earth to love you and to love others. Please give us the ability to equip him to be a man of integrity and stand up for your truth! Please help us to show him what a real and personal relationship with you looks like every minute of every day. We give you all the glory for such a wonderful son! Help us most of all to be like you as he will be looking at us.

Day 157: Gigi and Daddy put together Brant's exersaucer that Grandma Ellie and Grandpa Ron got him for his baby shower. He is getting really good at playing with it.
Day 158: We love waking up and hanging out with Gigi ALL day long!!
Day 159: Mr. Big stuff is now rolling from his back to his belly like a Big Shot! We can't believe how fast he is growing and doing so much now. We praise God for such a healthy strong beautiful boy! I think Brant kind of looks like my cousin Cody in this picture when he was a baby. Never saw it before, but I do in this picture. However, my mom couldn't believe how much Brant looked like my middle brother Logan the whole week this time. :)
Day 160: It has been sooooo hott here this week. Scorching. So mom thought Brant was thirsty, so we gave hm his first refreshing drink of water. At first we thought he liked it, then he gave us a nasty face that said.....this is NOT my milk!
Day 161: We are so sad that Gigi has to go back to Indiana. We had such a lovely week with her.
Day 162: Brant is fascinated with looking at himself in the mirror! It makes him extremely excited! If he is fussing and we show him his own reflection, he immediately starts screaming!! It's so entertaining!
