Two Weeks Ago

Can you believe it? I actually did what I promised and posted three times this week! I know, I know, it's 9:25 PM on Sunday, but I still got the third one in :) After this, I'll be caught up and tomorrow I will post about this past week/weekend.

The week of October 11, we went to Boerne for the week to spend some time with my mom and for me to get my hair done. Brendan loves seeing his CiCi and she loves seeing him! We spent Monday-Thursday morning there and had a GREAT time. But, of course, I took ZERO pictures. So, I'm doing a throwback picture of CiCi and Brendan from when he was 8 months old.

October 15th, we went to Waco to spend the night at my dad and Nancy's and then go to the A&M v. Missouri game with them on Saturday. This was Brendan's first A&M game, other than the one he went to while he was in my tummy :). Unfortunately, he HATED it :( We already knew loud noises scare him, but I thought he had sort of gotten over that. Well, the game started with the jets flying over and he freaked out at that. He spent the rest of the 1.5 quarters we were there screaming and crying. *sigh* Nancy, Emily, Caroline and my dad tried to help out SO much so we could watch as much of the game as possible, but it got to the point that Brendan was inconsolable and I wasn't going to put Nancy through that any longer!

Of course, as soon as we got out of the stadium, Brendan cheered up. We took that opportunity to take some pictures to remember his first game.

Out on the E. King Gill statue (I was afraid he was going to fall!) His overalls say "Class of 2032" down the leg :)

With Daddy in front of the stadium

As we were walking to the car, we passed this AWESOME dude! He is a Storm Trooper from Star Wars but instead of being in white, he was in maroon! He was really nice, by the way.

He passed out in the car on the way to get our car (lonnng complicated story to explain that, not worth going into here!) and, for the first time in his life, I was able to get him out of the carseat (so we could switch it into my car) and he stayed asleep. I sat in the cool car with him while Tim switched it and we snapped a couple pictures.
It was probably a good thing we left the game, because the Aggies got their butts kicked 30 to 9 by Missouri. Poor Aggies. My dad says they'll be good by the time Brendan is there ;)

That's about all, folks! I will post tomorrow with an update from this past week and weekend. We took another trip and have some exciting news about Brendan!
