Christmas 2009

We had a wonderful Christmas this year. Stayed at home on Christmas Eve/Christmas and just spent time together as a family. On Saturday we traveled to WI to spend Christmas with the Jimenez's. We were thankful that we had good travel weather and given that I am 9 months pregnant we were a little concerned with how the 5 hr trip would go but it was actually quite pleasant! Brody was so much fun this year. He loved opening gifts and had so much fun seeing NaNa and PaPa Jimenez and spending time with all his cousins. We will celebrate the Jameson Christmas in January once the baby is here. Looking forward to an exciting 2010!

Brody-18 months

Cousin, Spenscer, thought he would give Brody a new hairdo!

Thank goodness Raleigh is so patient!

Blueberries - Brody's favorite...too bad they are so messy!

We are having so much fun with this age. Brody is talking and learning to listen and communicate. Although this age does bring some challenges -- tantrums are starting! We are still having fun! Anticipating a very fun Christmas! Here are some highlights from the last month...

33 weeks

Baby Girl

Today we had an ultrasound and it was amazing to see our baby girl had turned into a little person since our last ultrasound 12 weeks ago. We confirmed that she is definitely a girl, she has her brother's nose, lots of hair, loves to stick out her tongue and is very healthy at 4.7 lbs! And, she is no longer in breech position -- now let's keep it that way for another 7 weeks! I won't be complaining about kicks in the ribs as they have never felt so good! :-)

Sticking out her tongue!

Already showing off her muscles!

28 weeks

Not sure how I feel about posting my growing belly on our blog but keep getting asked for pictures so this is easiest way to share! Can't believe I am already 28 weeks - this pregnancy is going by so quickly!

Happy Halloween!

All the changes that one year can bring -- Halloween 2008 and 2009!

Brody had a very fun Halloween. Daddy took him trick or treating and he lasted for over an hour. He also really enjoyed greeting the kids at the door. We had over 130 kids this year!!

Rascal Flatts

Usually I leave the updates to what Brody is doing but thought I would include a recent picture of myself and Rascal Flatts. My friend, Jen, is also in the picture. Hershey is sponsoring Rascal Flatts this year so we got to go back stage and get our picture taken -- fun times!

Corn Fest 2009

Several years ago Frank read an article in USA Today and it listed The Adel Iowa Sweet Corn Festival as one of the best in the United States. Since that time we try to make it to the Corn Fest every couple of years. This year we went with both sets of grandparents. It was VERY HOT but we still had fun and of course the corn was excellent! Other big news ... Brody finally took one step on his own. I think we are close -- up until this point he has had no interest in walking! :-)

A day at the Zoo...

We had family in town last weekend so Brody and his cousin Brecken got to spend lots of quality time together (sorry for all the hair pulling, Brecken:-)! We went to the zoo and had such a great time. This was Brody's first trip to the zoo and he really liked it! His favorite was the prairie dog's, they started to fight and play and Brody started to giggle watching them. Unforunately I didn't get any pictures of Brody and his cousin Brecken!

First Haircut!

Brody got his first professional haircut yesterday. I have cut it at least 5-6 times but It was getting very shaggy so we decided it was time for a professional. He did great. Played with his toys and the ladies entertained him. He looks so much older now!
Before the haircut.

Being entertained by silly ladies and bubbles!

New haircut!

Brody's Birthday Weekend!

Brody's first birthday party was on Saturday and a huge success! We had so much fun celebrating and thank you to all our family and friends who joined us. Brody really enjoyed all the extra attention he received from grandparents, cousins, friends etc. He especially enjoyed hangin' with the big boys, his cousins Spenscer and Brok. He also got to spend time with his cousin Brecken -- they went to the park and rode in the wagon together. Today it was just Brody and I and I think he was bored! :-) We took almost 200 pictures throughout the weekend so it was hard to choose what photos to post. Enjoy!

Brody's first year!

Happy Birthday Brody - he turns 1 tomorrow. WOW - can't believe how quickly a year has gone by. I created a little slide show of all the highlights of Brody's first year -- was so much fun (and a couple of tears were shed :) to go back through all the great memories. We will be celebrating on Saturday with Brody's first birthday bash!

Sad face!

Brody is such a happy baby but he has decided that he doesn't like to have his picture taken (maybe I have taken too many pictures of him!) When I get the camera out he is instantly not happy and makes a sad face to let us know how he is feeling! Hopefully it is just a phase and will pass VERY quickly as his one year pictures are later this week.
Here are some of his classic looks! :-)
