Lately Brody has been really getting into trains, not really Thomas but just trains in general. He also has a love for animals, so we put those two together and took him to the zoo today to ride the train and check out some animals in the hot hot heat, well not so much heat but humidity, I felt like I was back home!

Brody 'grossing' his cousins out by his primitive eating habits

swimming at the pool everyday was fun except when the water was like a hot tub! gotta love that houston weather

commiting the ultimate sin...playing on abuelito's baby grand, but at least he didn't bang on it.
This week we got to go visit my family in Houston. We drove half way to Ft. Worth and stayed with sister isaura and then next day went down home. We just had fun taking it easy, swimming and taking a fun trip to IKEA. Sister Ismari and her kids came and stayed at my mom's house while we were there so Brody had fun playing and screaming with and at Isaac and Maile !!

mmm...cookie dough

Today we went to a BBQ/pool party at some friends house and I made some cookies to take over. Brody was 'helping' me by taking handfuls of the cookie dough and shoveling it in his mouth. I had to move to the other counter bc he was going to make himself sick. I gave him the whisk and bowl to play with and it looks like maybe I didn't get all the cookie dough out!

current Brody milestones

Nothing like sharing an after dinner skinny cow with mom

Nice tan Brody. The funny thing is I put like 50 spf on him and 15 on me and he is darker. He LUUUUUUUVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVSSS the pool he will definatley take swimming lessons next year because he will just run and jump in knowing I will be there to catch him. He is great at holding his breath, and kicking his legs, what a fish!

Brody has two definate characteristics that he gets from Brad and I. OCDism from me and stick-to-it-ism from Brad. He has been really wanting to do things on his own lately, and if he wants to do it, he'll stick with it till he gets it done (or cries till I help him do it, and then cries bc I helped him). He has great motor skills and he has been buckling himself in all high chairs, strollers and carts and tries his car seat. Luckily he doesn't try to unbuckle it...yet.
