Brock & Brody

Summer so far has been fun but crazy-busy! We finally had a weekend to ourselves and it felt great! Not that we don't love our family and friends:)
Four years ago (before Brock) we got this bike at a ward auction for $25.00. Knowing we would have children one day we held on to it. Brock is a real pro on his tricycle. He pedals so fast we can't even see his legs. We thought it was time to move him up in the world and get the "BIG BOY" bike down. We went to Walmart and got him a helmet, training wheels, and a horn.

At first there were more than a few accidents. He couldn't figure out how to keep the pedals moving. Which we were confused at because he conquered the tricycle. He gave up and didn't want to ride any more. We told him we know you can do it, if you keep trying. He had no interest to do so. A few hours later we went out side again and I asked him if he wanted to ride his "BIG BOY" bike. He said no. We said ok, you don't have to do it until you are ready. I took it down to the sidewalk and left it there. A few moments later we could see him touching and playing with his bike, then he looked up at us and said, I need my helmet! I said are you ready to try again? Yes mom....

With determination in his eyes he tried again. He took off and never stopped pedaling. Randy and I cheered for him, even as he turned the bike around and came back all by him self.

He road his bike for hours that day, back and forth, from one drive-way to another. Everyday he gets better. We are so proud of Brock for getting enough courage to try again. He did it all by himself and we knew he could do it. Good Job buddy! We love you!

I just barely started feeding Brody baby food and snack puffs. He absolutely loves them! With Brock I could not wait to start baby food. With Brody I have held back a little. It just means he is growing up. Brody is in 9-12 month clothing. The other day I was putting away all the clothes that are to small. It makes me sad to think that he just might be our last baby. I wish he could stay a baby forever.

We like to check our boys when they are sleeping. Look how peaceful and sweet.

Brody is so sweet. We love you so much little man!
