Braden has started eating human food and is slowly being weened off of formula which is a miracle for our wallets. He is really loving sitting in his high chair and eating along with the rest of the family and I think he is very proud of it too. He will eat anything that gets put in front of him, including crab, spinach, beans, string cheese and of course chicken nuggets, as evidenced by his big round belly. Oh did I mention he loves eating paper and wipes? YUM!! It is so much fun taking him on dates because we can just enjoy ourselves while he eats with us. Just enjoying a little string cheese! Look how grown up he is. SAD!!
He refuses to even attempt crawling, which is annoying and a blessing at the same time. Annoying because he whines and fake cries whenever he wants to move and that gets old really quick, but since there are 8 people in this house who are in love with him, he pretty much gets whatever he wants much to my dismay. Even when I am trying to hold out, he gets it from someone else. A blessing because my moms house isnt baby proof and I am not interested in making it that way. So he can hold out until we move out and then he will be all on his own.He loves standing up and I fear that he will just start walking before he crawls. He is much more interested in being a big boy and I can just leave him holding onto something and he will just stand there talking to himself andsit down when he is tired and ready to do something else, or whine. I have seen him eyeing the couch and thinking hard about the effort it would take him to pull himself up. He is very sensitive and Devins sisters and mom say that Braden reminds them of Dev because he was very sensitive when he was younger. He gets his feelings hurt really easily, which I am hoping will keep him from being a snotty older sibling later. He is cuttin tooth #3 on the top left and I dont even want to think about how grown up he will look with top teeth. He recenlty learned to clap and wave and he steals our hearts every day. Braden has happy feet (hands, and mouth too). He rolls his hands and his feet nonstop when he is happy. It is the cutest thing and I just love it. He also clicks his tongue when he is happy. How he figured that out, I have no idea. He is so cute. He is getting to be so much fun and I love playing with him and talking to him because he is so interactive now. We feel like he is getting so big and is practically a little boy. I am really enjoying him especially when he gets a good nap in! He is the best and we heart him!
