I went to Colorado in September to baby sit while my niece Jess and her husband Mike were on their 10th anniversary honeymoon after they renewed their vows…
I missed the ceremony and festivities as it was on Saturday and I flew in on Sunday. Such a beautiful family!
So, this is Brady! He always crosses his feet when he eats! He loves blueberries and has a binky addiction!
He’s a big boy and a baby all at the same time. Quite a snuggle bug, he sleeps 12 hours at night and is such a good baby!
He loves to be outdoors…
He can escape almost any form of restraint, opens the front door if the deadbolt isn’t locked.
He is just soooo cute!
He keeps a close eye on the neighborhood bunnies…
He would rather be doing something else other than shopping at Ikea…
but he did hold hands with me while we were shopping.
I made him a teepee which he was cautious of at first, but he gradually warmed up to it! You can see how I made it here.
He helps water the flowers and vegetable garden…
He spotted this bunny that he needs to talk to up close…so off he goes.
The bunny lets him get a foot away and then hops underneath the bush.
So of course, Brady must go look at him underneath the bush.
Who knew they made little converse sneaks in size 5?
Sweet little baby shoes…and this boy loves to smell feet! Even his own which can be pretty stinky sometimes!
He loves his Yaya! Yup that’s my family nickname…used to be Lolly but one of my nieces couldn’t say Lolly so it got changed to Yaya (I believe that is grandmother in Greek too!).
This is how he is usually moving…top speed!
He’s really a big helper! Loading the dishwasher here…
and throwing his crayons away after he is done coloring!
He required rescuing a few times…like this time where he got stuck in the back of the dump truck. That’s not a real cry by the way! He can fake a good cry like crazy!
Watching me finish watering the plants, as you can see by his shirt he helped some.
This boy loves the park…
and running on the jungle gym walkway, and sliding are his specialties.
Some snuggling with Aunt Sarah..the park is so tiring!!
And he does love a good bubble fest! Here Suz and Rob are keeping him entertained with lots of bubbles! He pops each one with his index finger.
A little Diet Coke right before bed never hurt anyone, right?
A warm bath and he is ready for bed!
More snuggles and he is asleep!
Love it when a baby knows how to sleep!
So while his mama was sending me pics of St. Lucia, I was looking at these great views!
Grow big and strong Brady boy, your Yaya loves you so much! And thanks Jess and Mike for trusting me to take care of your little man! He’s a keeper!
