Ready...Set.....GO!

We had some exciting developments this past week. First, Brendan walked "by himself" (while holding onto some bars) at Little Gym. AND, he also stood up by himself for about 10 seconds at the same class! Last but not least....

Yep! He actually crawls! But, I do have a disclaimer. He hates it. He only crawls in order to get to me to stand up. Only when he is forced to cross the room to get to me to stand up. Haha. It's quite funny but at least he's actually doing it!

He also rediscovered his love for the activity table and actually likes to play at it sometimes again.

Annnddd, he got a new walker/ride on car from Lolli and Pops! So far, he doesn't really like to walk on it but sometimes he does like to sit on it and steer and even occassionally move his feet so he goes forward on it. Doesn't he look cute? :)
This past weekend, we went to Crockett to celebrate my mom's (CiCi's) 50th birthday. Her birthday is actually today (HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM!) but we celebrated it over the weekend. Brendan loved getting to see his CiCi, Peepaw, Nanny and Papa as well as his great aunt and uncle and cousin. He also got to visit with his Mammaw and Pappaw (my grandparents on my dad's side) who live across the street from Nanny and Papa but I was bad and didn't take a picture with them. He had an awesome time playing their piano and walking around the living room.

Having a conversation with Papa...

Helping CiCi blow out the candles on her cake

And a family shot before we had to leave (I don't know why Peepaw looks concerned/confused haha)
Brendan is so blessed to not only have all his grandparents still around but to also have FOUR great-grandparents that he gets to spend time with. We like to try to take lots of opportunities for him to spend time with them because it is such a wonderful thing for him to still have them around.
I forgot to mention in my last post that I also had a Girl's Night two Thursdays ago (when I got back from Boerne) with four of the girls I've become friends with in my playgroup. We went and painted pottery then went to a bar for some appetizers and drinks and then went to one of the girl's houses for some more chatting. I ended up not getting home until 2:00 AM! I was pretty darn tired the next day but it was such an awesome night and it is great to have made some really good new friends.
Hope everyone is having a good week! Oh, and if I don't post beforehand, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

That is great that he is crawling!! Love all the pics, he just gets cuter and cuter....he, Ty and Emery are all so fortunate to have great-grandparents, I agree that they should take every opportunity to visit....hope to see you tomorrow...

Yay Brendan! How are you liking Little Gym? I'd like to take Aiden but all the classes for his age are during the day. I'm hoping I can at least take him over the summer when school is out.
