Brady's Contagious Laugh

For those of you that have not had the privilege of being around Brady when he is being silly, here is your chance! He gets a little giddy at night and as you can see it is not hard to get him going, but it sure does make you laugh and smile when he starts laughing! I wish I could download this as my ring tone on my cell phone! Hit the play button below to start the video! Enjoy!

Napa Trip

Well we just got back from Napa! For those of you asking I thought it was a very kid friendly place and we were not the only ones there pushing strollers in and out of all of the winery's! We met Grandma and Grandpa Smith out there for a quick weekend and had a great time. Who wouldn't in wine country. (Especially us wine lovers.) The mornings were foggy, drizzly and humid but then the sun would come out and the temperature would clime intow the sixties. A nice break from the 20 degree weather we returned to in Colorado. The landscape was green and lush and the mustard flowers covered the grounds of most of the vineyards. We learned that the mustard flowers make for great ground cover in the fields. Our favorite wineries for the ambience was the Rubicon estate formerly known as Coppola. There was a lot of Francis ford Coppola museum items there and the grounds were very casltle like. We also enjoyed the beautiful views and garden grounds of Viansa. By far our favorite winery for the wine was Silver Oak. Their new building was under construction so they just had a trailor set up, but we didn't care because the wine was fabulous!

Brady 7 months

Brady- You are such a little person! You are developing quite a personality! You make daddy and I laugh all of the time. You will probably be the class clown some day. I love that you love to snuggle. We pick you up now and you wrap your little arms around our neck and hold on for dear life. It is the most heartwarming feeling that I have ever felt. You love to look at the dog and kitty and the dogs make you laugh. We lost our dear Barley this last month, but you still have your other puppy Hopper around to watch and roll toward. Which brings up the rolling, you roll everywhere! Forget crawling you try but you inch yourself away from things instead of toward. When you get frustrated that the object of your attention is getting farther away you turn yourself and then roll, roll, roll until you reach it. You roll all over the family room! You sit up really well now but when you forget what you are doing because you are concentrating on toy to much then you tumble and donk your head on the floor and start screaming, I don’t think it hurts to much I just think it scares you. You say Mum but only when you are hungry, tired or upset, the rest of the time it is da-da. You also have started saying ti-ti, I think you are saying Kitty. Can’t wait to see what next month holds! P.S. You started cutting two top teeth this month the two next to your two front teeth. You have five total now!
