My Big Little Boy

Braden is growing up so fast and I am so proud of the little boy that he has become. I can't believe he is almost 17 months old! Here is what's been going on with him-This is his cute lion towel from Grandpa & Grandma Garlock. He loves it so much. When he gets out of the bath I put it on his head and he just runs around the house naked! It is so hilarious!This is the chair that I used to nurse him in and where he actually slept a couple nights when he was a newborn. He loves to climb in it and rock himself.
On Valentines Day, we never got a babysitter so we just ended up taking Braden to this pizza place by our house. It was so much fun and such a great family place to take the kids.
