I am a little behind in posting this, but things have been a little hetic and crazy around here the past few weeks with Brayden's birthday, work and just everyday life! Last Tuesday, we found out we are expecting another boy! We are thrilled to welcome another boy into the family....Brayden definitely needs one to help him out with all his girl cousins ; ) We took Brayden with us for the ultrasound so he could see the baby in mommy's tummy that we've been talking about for weeks. I don't know how much he really understood what he was seeing (I didn't even understand a lot of the things the tech pointed out on the ultrasound...I don't know how they know what they are looking at sometimes) He was excited to find out it was a baby brother because that is what he has been saying he wanted. When the ultrasound was all done, Brayden said "are we gonna get the baby out now?" He was very disappointed to find out we weren't...he whined and came so close to tears when we were leaving, saying "Where's my baby brother...I want my baby brother!" It was pretty cute. Here are a few ultrasound pics of our little peanut. Now it's time to start thinking about names...I think that's the hardest part for us!

Brayden turned 3 last Thursday! We had several celebrations during the week for his birthday. We started on Wednesday when I took cupcakes to MMO for a little "school party". He was very excited to have me at MMO with him, but he didn't believe me that we were doing it for his birthday : ) For weeks before, Greg and I kept telling him that his birthday was coming up, so he kept telling me it wasn't his birthday yet...it was coming up!
Finally, on Saturday we had a Spiderman birthday party at our house. All of our family, friends and his friends from church came to help us celebrate. It was a perfect day for an outdoor party and everything went so well for such a large group. Brayden loved having all of his little friends at his house to play. Grammy made him an awesome Spiderman cake that I almost didn't even want to cut, it looked so good! The kids played, decorated Spiderman masks, watched a "magic show" from Lydia, ate pizza & cake, and watched Brayden open all of his presents. He got so many fun new toys, but his most favorite is the "Big Buzz Lightyear" from Grammy and Grampa that he had been asking for for weeks.
