Brock's 1st Hair Cut

So... I may or may not have had the worst case of Mom goggles ever...

We finally realized that Brock was in desperate need of a hair cut. Much to our disappointment the long hair thing just wasn't working for him.

We took him to one of those kid's hair cut places. As we walked in I see this pint sized stylist cutting another little boys hair. He was getting the traditional little boy hair cut. You know the one where they just take clippers to it all the way around and shape around the ears way too much. So now their forehead looks huge and there is so much space between the top of their ear and their hair line their ears look huge too?! All I could think was what if she makes Brock look like a dork like this other kid?!?!

We went ahead and strapped him in the chair. Much to our surprise she listened to what we asked for and did a great job. That other Mom must have wanted her son to look like that. Poor kid!

Brody 3 Months


You are 3 months old today. I can't believe how much you have grown. You are the biggest cuddle bug and the sweetest baby. You have the warmest hugs and the sweetest smile. You love to watch your big brother play. You just look so curious as you watch him as if you just can't wait to play with him. You are such a big boy! You are growing like a weed! You are wearing clothes that Brock wore when he was 4 & 5 months old. You can roll over from your back to your belly. You like to bat at the toys on your activity mat. You love to look in the mirror and the adorable baby that stares back at you. You laugh so hard when mommy tickles you with her hair. You love getting hugs from Brock and you tolerate when he hits you. You are one tough baby! One day you will be able to get him back... I promise! You are sleeping through the night and mommy loves you for that. You are so handsome and so sweet. You are such an amazing little boy.

I love you to the moon and back.

Brock 15 Months

Brock is so much fun these days. He is running all over the place, climbing on everything, eating anything and everything, and getting smarter and cuter by the day. He started a new daycare up here and is in the toddler room & he absolutely loves it.

What Brock's been up to:

Loves to read books, play with trucks, throw and kick and balls, climb up slides, swing, swim, sing songs, and dance
He can sign "more" and can say "get". He says get to dogs. We don't know if he is saying it to tell them to get or if he thinks dogs are called "get". He also says "sat" meaning what's that. He babbles non stop and expects you to respond to whatever it is that he thinks he is saying.
He loves to be outside more than anything. He loves to throw rocks at birds with daddy and eat dirt.
He likes painting and coloring
He will eat anything. His current favs are cherry tomatoes, blueberries, turkey, bananas, tortilla's, any kind of cheese, Greek yogurt with fruit, hot dogs and chicken nuggets.
He is starting to mimic everything we do. It's time for us to start watching what we do around him!
He can brush his own hair and loves to brush his teeth. He loves being a big boy.
He is the BIGGEST flirt! He bats his beautiful eyelashes and plays shy. He's good!
He loves to play with Brody and give him hugs. He's a great big brother :)

He is our rock throwing, worm hunting, dirt eating, music loving, flirt.
