Bradlee Business

Bradlee is growing up so fast; it is hard for me to handle. She goes potty in the toilet everytime now. She had one accident today, but only because she couldn't get the door open. As soon as she decided she was ready to use the toilet, there was no turning back, and the whole process has been super easy. She is talking so much more now, which is a huge relief for me. Yesterday in the car she was singing, "noman, noman, tall, tall, tall". It was the cutest Snowman song I have ever heard, that's for sure. She loves her little brother, but only occasionally does she call him Brock. It is usually Buddy, but lately she has taken a liking to Buddy Boy. She likes to wrestle him to the ground, and he loves it. It is quite the site during sacrament meeting, let me tell ya. We are totally into Care Bears and "pobies" (My Little Ponies) right now. She tries to take all twelve of her ponies with us wherever we go. Luckily, she now has a purse for all her ponies which she thinks is the greatest thing ever. Oh, and she is a lot more cuddly now than she has ever been, and coming from her...I can't say I'm hatin' it. She will come up to me now with her arms up and say "hold me". That's a welcome change from her usual "get the hell away from me" attitude. (Excuse my language, but that's the only way to explain it!) Bradlee made Tyler and Brock put clips in their hair and pose for this picture with her. I know...I know...pretty freakin' adorable. I am one lucky lady!

Brock - 10 Months

Well, now that Brock is 10 months old, I decided it was time for his nine month wellness check-up and his six month immunizations. What can I say? I am on top of it! Good new is...we are now on schedule for his 12 month visit. As of today, Brock weighs 20 lbs. which is in the 25th percentile (or close to it). He is 29 inches long...which is in the 50th percentile. His head circumference is almost 18 inches, which is also the 50th percentile. He is so fun to have around. I love how happy he is ALL THE TIME! He is all over the place now, and he gets into everything! He pulls himself up to a standing position all the time, and can even stand on his own for a few seconds. He is a killer at church....SO LOUD, and he hates relief society! He turns his mobile on and off by himself, and says dadadada and mamama all day long. After his shots today, he 100% chewed out the nurse, but was totally fine and happy as soon as she left the room!

How can you not love this little guy?!

Just a Little Research

There goes our First Amendment Rights...

S.AMDT.591 to S.160 To encourage and promote diversity in communication media ownership, and to ensure that the public airwaves are used in the public interest.

And my personal favorite...

H.J.RES.5 : Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article of amendment, thereby removing the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President.Sponsor: Rep Serrano, Jose E.
