So this year was so much fun with Brantley! He loved opening up his presents and had to help everyone else open theirs too! Now every morning he wakes up asking to open up more presents! It is so cute! He also got the whole Santa thing this year. He knew that if he was not a good boy then Santa would not come and bring him anything and he loved seeing Santa. It was funny to see how excited he got on Christmas Eve. All of his cousins were excited and he was right there with them.

So Sweet!!

I just thought that I would post some random pictures of this fall of how sweet Brantley can be. Most of the time he goes none stop and can be a pill at times, but on a rare occasion he can be so sweet!

Anyone Need a Delivery Man?

He thought that this mask was the coolest! He got it from his babysitter Emma. But he kept wanting to put it on upside down. Funny boy!

Delivering his first package for the night

Grandma St.Jeor, Brantley and Bridger
This year for Halloween Brantley was a UPS Delivery Man! He was so stickin cute! When we went to pick out a costume for him Justin picked out the UPS costume and I picked out a train driver costume and we let Brantley choose. Well, the UPS one won hands down. He did not want anything to do with the other costume! So, He picked it out even though he does not understand it. Justin then had to have him carry a box (makes since since he was a UPS Delivery Man) so instead of using his pumpkin for his candy bag, we made one out of a box. What a cleaver dad! He was so cute trick or treating. We did not go to that many houses, but the ones that we did, he just kept on grabbing handfuls of candy and I had to stop him. He just loved it and wanted to keep on going!

No More Binkie!!

So Brantley's two front teeth have been moving a bit because of the binkie. He only got it for nap time and bedtime, but he was very attached to it. In fact he had to have two binkies to go to sleep. Well since we did not want to ruin his teeth more and cause him problems, we decided that it is now time to get rid of it. So, on Friday, I told him that "Big Boys" don't use binkies and it was time to get rid of it. So, I took him outside and had him throw them away in the garbage and he has not looked back since!!! He really has not had any problems with going to sleep at home and hopefully when he returns to the babysitters he will be just fine ( I appoligize now Emma if he does have a problem Sorry)! We are so proud of our "big boy". He is growing up so fast! Next is the big boy bed and potty training!! Wish us luck (And if any of you have any suggestions on the potty training let me know. I will need all the help that I can get)! We Love you Brantley!

Black Island Farms

Brantley and I went to the Black Island Farms Harvest Festival with my mom and had a great time. Brantley really liked the slides, and the maze, but did not like the "train ride" all that much. He wanted to go by himself, and I did not want to go all that much so I was great with that. Well, he did fine tell about half way threw it and then he started crying. Once he got back he was so scared ! He wanted Bear and was snuggling up to me. I felt so bad. But once he got in the "jump a jump" he was happy again and just fine. We had a great time. Thanks Mom!!

I Need HELP!!!

Ok, so I need some help with Brantley.  He has always been such a great sleeper.  He normally goes to bed around 8 and wakes up between 8-9 in the morning and has done this since he was 6 months old with the occasional waking up in the middle of the night, but when he did wake up, all that I would have to do is go in there, rock him for about 2min or so to comfort him and put him back in bed awake.  Great!  Well, 4 nights ago, he woke up at 5am, and was still tired, but did not want to go back to bed without me with him so after fighting this tell 6:30am, I finally did what I told myself that I would never do and put him in bed with me.  Well after that, the last 3 nights, he has been waking up at 10:30pm and and wanting me to rock him or sleep on the floor in his room!  We have tried everything to try and break him of this.  I tried talking to him (which is normally what works best for Brantley), letting him "cry it out" (He is very persistent and does not stop!  We let him cry for 20min and he was still going strong!!), getting him out of bed, rocking for a couple of min and then putting him back in bed, letting him walk around the house for a couple of min and then put him back in bed, having Justin go in there instead of me (he just continues to cry and asks for mommy), etc.  NOTHING WORKS!  He  also has been very clingy to me during the day.  When I am with him, he will not leave me my side.  He has been my little shadow.  So, does anyone have any suggestions?  I am up for anything at this point.  I don't want to bring him into my bed, but I also do not want to sleep on the floor in his room either (and I tried leaving his room after he fell asleep, and about a half hour later he would wake up and see that I was not there and start crying again)!  It is like he is afraid that I am going to leave him.  What do I do?  Has anyone else had this issue and if so what worked for you?   I NEED HELP!

7 YEARS!!!!

So this post is a little late, but it is also right on time. On the 13th, Justin and I had our 7 year anniversary!!! Can you believe it! We have been married for 7 years!! We really are getting old. Well, since Brantley's birthday is the day before our anniversary, we were not able to celebrate tell this weekend. So on Friday, my parents watched Brantley while we went to dinner. Our tradition is to go the Market Street Grill. We love that place!!! It is always so good and I love the atmosphere. Justin got me an adapter so that I can now listen to my iPod and talk on my phone through my speakers. I am so stoked! Thanks Justin for being such a great husband and father. You truely are the love of my life and my everything!

Brantley is 2!!

Brantley turned 2 yesterday. It was so much fun! I started his day out by singing happy birthday to him when I went in to get him out of his bed for the day, and it was so cute! He got all bashfull and coy and asked me all day long to sing to him. He was excited all day for his party to come. He kept on repeating all of his family and friends that were coming and got all excited about cake and ice cream. Brantley got spoiled like always. He got so many toys and such cute outfits! He was in toy heaven and still is this morning. He can't decide what toys to play with and just keeps on going back and forth between all of them. He was so wound up that he did not go to bed tell 9:30 which is late for him. Thank you everyone that came for coming! It would not have been the same without you guys. I can't wait for the hollidays this year! He is going to be so much fun!!!!

Well, as you can tell from the picture, Justin and I are expecting our 2nd child! I am 10 weeks along, and due on March 23rd. We are so excited about our new addition and can't wait to find out what the sex of the baby is. I had my 2nd doctors appointment today and everything is looking great. The baby was kicking and doing flips like mad! I have been feeling ok during the day, but at about 5pm, I start to get nauseous and have puked several times. This pregnancy has been a lot different then with Brantley. I was not sick at all with Brantley. I am just hoping that this means that it is a girl. We will see!!!

Happy Birthday to Me!

Well, Wednesday was my 27th birthday. I am getting really old! This was probably one the of worst birthdays that I have had in a long time (well worst week really!). It started with Brantley getting sick, then Justin getting sick and then of coarse ME! All three of us have either had the runs, or throwing up all week long. It has been horrible. By Thursday, we were all feeling better and things started to get better. Justin got me Breaking Dawn (I have not been able to put it down) and then these beautiful purple roses. For those that know me, these are my favorite! I just love these and this was such a good batch! THANKS BABE!! Also, since we are feeling better, we are leaving Brantley with my parents this weekend and heading up to Bear Lake for a little get-a-way. Thanks Mom and Dad for taking him! We are really looking forward to this weekend.

Here are the directions:

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.

This past weekend we headed up to Cascade, ID with Levi and Kristi, Josh and Rachel, Tyson and Bryce and Amie.

So, we had a lot to do and we went with a great group of friends. Brantley had a blast like always. He even went swimming in the middle of the lake!
