I am the WORST Mom ever, I know, I know, but better late than never I always (well, sometimes) say. So here is Brady's well earned birthday post! And lots, and lots, and lots, and LOTS of pictures of my bubby boy. There were just too many to choose from, and I even narrowed it down!
I am pretty sure this is a picture of the first time I was able to hold my son, a day after he was born. That was not cool, but there is nothing like holding your new born child for the first time. Pure Joy.
Yellow, squishy, and the biggest baby in the NICU. And all mine (and Keith's, LOL)! Big boy sitting up! Look at his round head! Even rounder... more roundness! This was the best costume EVER, except that it scared Ewan a little! He got himself stuck under there! After this picture he started crying for dear life! Happy First Birthday! I remember he was SO neat! The cake only was on his chin area, like a little hobo beard! Cracked me up! First trip to the ER for liquid stitches. He was such a big boy and didn't even cry, just played with momma while we waited, and waited, and waited, and waited! How can you forget this? Priceless! Someone didn't nap long enough! Yummy yogurt and the signature smile! Dude? When did you grow up?
Brady has turned into the most loving, sweet boy a Momma could ask for. I can't believe how time has flown. If there was a way to grasp it in my hands and tell it to slow down I would. I will never get these moments back, but as I look through pictures they can still bring smiles and tears to my face. I love this boy with all my heart, and though we had a rocky start, his presence in my life is a joyous thing. How do Momma's get so blessed to have just the right kids for them? I thank my Heavenly Father that he knew just who to send to me, this sweet little spirit, just for me! Momma and Daddy and Natalie and everyone who knows you loves you Brady! Our Bubba, Bubs, Buddy, Boo Boo, Bubby Boy, Stinker Butt, Sweet Cheeks, Cool Man, Mr. Thighs, Brady....I LOVE YOU!
