Brayden's Family

This past Sunday we went to Mike's family reunion down in White Sands. I met quite a few relatives that I hadn't met before. It was a nice time. Brayden also got to meet a lot of family members. It gave me an opportunity to get a picture of Brayden, Mike, Mike's dad Wayde, and his mom, Maisie. 4 Generations.

Yesterday we had some much needed rain, and Brayden and I spent most of the day just lounging around the house playing with his toys. My flower garden definitley looks much healthier since the rain.

Finally, summertime has arrived on PEI, and bringing with it, HOT weather. Thankfully my parents gave us one of their air conditioners this summer and we are fairing out not too badly. I've also had Brayden in his pool a few times. He loves the water and has such a great time splashing and giggling, it is so cute! I also found out last week at the beach that he LOVES to eat mud!

This weekend is Mike's family reunion, so I will be meeting quite a few people that I haven't met before and everyone will get to meet Brayden.

We have been keeping pretty quiet so that is all I have to say for now :)

Oh almost forgot, I took Brayden to Georgetown this week for a tour of the Bluenose II while it was docked there. For a little guy who doesn't know much about boats, he was impressed!

First Camping Trip

This weekend we took Brayden on his first camping trip. We weren't really roughing it, my parents have a camper that they keep at the St. Peters campground during the summer months. But we had a good time all the same. Except for the mosquitos. Who ever has a good time with them? Brayden slept quite well considering the strange place and the heat.

I also took him to the parade in Georgetown for Georgetown days on Saturday morning. He had a great time waving to everyone. Today we went mini golfing at the Seal Cove campground, which was also a good time.

We are definitly enjoying the good weather we have been having the last few days and plan to keep enjoying it as long as we can!

Brayden is crawling faster than ever now and is also "cruising" around furniture. There is not stopping this little guy.

Even more teeth

Brayden's two front teeth finally came through. And now the ones on either side of them are coming too. It still could be a while before we see them, but the gums are swollen up now. I hope that these ones aren't as rough as the last two. Brayden finally got rid of the runny nose and stuffiness this past Monday. And my sweet little boy is back. In fact, he is even sweeter because now he is giving kisses and hugs.

The crawling is getting faster and faster, sometimes I think he is in a race. He is also pulling up on everything and walking around the furniture. I think once he learns to not take giant steps, he will be walking not too long after that. So here are the bruises, bumps and falls that everyone warned be about!

Brayden will be 8 months old this coming Sunday, July 15th. I know I've said it before, but I'll say it again, where has the time gone?

That's it for now, except, BIG Congratulations to Marko, Laura, and Sean Peric on the upcoming new addition to their family! Laura has a blog with sweet pictures of her little guy Sean, and you can have a look at www.lauraperic.blogspot.com.

More teeth

We've seen them coming for a while now, but Brayden's two front teeth finally broke through. And I do believe there is another bottom one on the way, but I could be wrong. All I know is my happy all the time baby is gone and is replaced by one minute happy, the next minute screaming in my face runny nosed monster! I have attributed the runny nose to the teeth coming, but it is still no fun.

We took Brayden to the Canada Day parade in Cardigan this past Sunday, and he slept through most of it, all of the fire trucks went by with their sirens, but he just kept snoring, then a dirt bike went by and scared him awake. We also went to the parade in Murray Harbour on Monday and planned on going to the fireworks that evening (where I had planned on getting some good pictures of Brayden and fireworks) but he was CRANKY and we came home and put him to bed.

Last week we also spent a day at the beach with my sister Sue and the two kids she babysits, Francis and Grace. We had a great time. Today we are heading to Kings Castle to enjoy some nice weather before a few days of rain.

Brayden is crawling everywhere, and he has gotten fast! He is also pulling himself up very well at the couch. Before he decides its worth his time to come up, he peeks to see if there is anything to grab first. It's pretty funny, especially if you catch him with the phone dialing up a number. He gets pretty angry when he is interrupted.
