Random Tuesday Thoughts: Braden

Today for Random Tuesday I thought I might just fill in a few little things about Braden. He has developed so many new habits that I haven't been able to keep up in proper blog form so today I will lay them out there randomly.


  • While I have been away Arica has somehow coached the little man into going to bed between 8:30 and 9 pm. He sleeps through the night too. This is a huge step in mine and Arica's life. It frees up more time for us than the DVR.
  • Braden has now walked on many occasions. He is very good at it, but for some reason he still prefers to crawl. I guess crawling is still easier and faster.
  • Braden loves all food. The kid eats everything you put in front of him. He loves green beans, carrots, peas, applesauce, yogurt, bananas, spaghettios, cheerios, mac and cheese, bread, pancakes, and everything else he can get in his mouth. He is just like his old man.
  • Braden has started clapping a lot lately. It is so funny to watch a baby clap and to see the joy on their face as they try out this new skill.
  • Lately Braden has found a new game. There is a corner in the living room that we don't let him into. It has our modem and some other wires. He has started crawling in there and climbing the mountain of blankets stacked by the couch. As I go to get him he crawls faster and laughs the whole way. It is a game to him. A game that is going to necessitate the moving of our furniture.
  • Yesterday we took Braden to the park. He got to swing for the first time. I think he liked it based on the sly grin he had the whole time.

Aww you're little boy is adorable. I'm just visiting from RTT. Have a great day!

(Razorbacks????? I'll let it slide . . .)

Ethan crawled for a while, too, after learning to walk. I think it was when he figured out how to easily get back into a standing position after falling that he pretty much ditched the crawling thing. He rarely crawls now.

I wish Ethan would clap...he knows how. Instead, he grabs my hands and pushes them together to make me clap! Cute, but he's missing the point, I think!

Good luck with the wires...we've been dealing with that one for quite some time...sometimes it's hard not to laugh with them because they're so cute!

Walking, eating, exploring, happy little baby machines are great! Your not prepping him for any particular team affiliation now are you?

I didn't think so...

What a sweetie! He is learning so much so fast. I think we need video.

I eat everything and find crawling easier than walking, also! OMG I am a baby! LOL!

He is a cutie!

Braden is just so adorable that I think I need to echo WM and say we do need video. He is growing up so quickly. I would love to hear his laughter as he crawls quickly away from you playing his "game." When you have a baby, who needs a gym? Braden seems to keep you and Arica on the move.

And because Braden was wearing a Razorbacks T-shirt, I had to ask my husband who they were. Yeah, my sports education is lacking. I found out that Razorbacks are affectionately called "Hogs" because razorbacks are wild hogs. The things I learn because of this blog. How educational!

BTW, is Braden trying to take off the hat? Is he not a cap wearer yet?

Awww he's so cute! My niece is 16 months old and eats everything her 6 year old sister won't.

Are you perhaps a Razorbacks fan?? lol

He is so adorable! Enjoy the newly recovered grown-up time.

Isn't it great how fast they pick things up around this age. I came back from my trip to Cali and my son says 'five' while holding up his hand. When you give him a high five, then he wants a fist bump. It is too funny. Love the pic.

Your little dude is cute!
