Are you there? It's me, Brady

Ok first of all, MOM I wouldn't have temper tantrums if you just got me like Rascal does. When he watches me he lets me get into anything, he even lets me eat his food with him! I can talk to him for hours and he gets every word I say, geez! Second of all, Da-Da does live in the computer and they gave him a mustache to wear, duh! I'm much smarter than you think! Ok sorry, just had to get that off my chest! Hi everyone!! Welcome to the second episode of Brady's World! I promise not to disappoint!

I've been hitting the gym quite a bit in between my fire station calls. Obviously it has been paying off.

Dad, I challenge you to a weightlifting challenge when you get back. Bet you can't lift a fire truck!

Oh man, so we get back from Minnesota and then I had to go BACK to doctor for shots. Horrible, horrible, horrible. And those ladies are so lame they don't even have any good bandaids. Ugh! Look, you can even see the blood on the bandaid! Someone needs to take their needle privleges away. Seriously. And the lady was like be careful, one of these was a live virus........


Great! Ok, ok before you all freak out it's actually raspberries. Got you though, didn't I?!

Things are pretty much the same here. Mom works me to the bone and I get no respects. Just me mowing the lawn again....

I think I may have pulled something in my neck...I guess that happens when you're mowing the lawn for 4 hours at a time....because you have short, short legs.....and you only get fed mini food....and have to drink out of a small cup......and are you getting how horrible my life is?

Oh geez. Mom bought these jean diapers.

More of these later. Ugh.

Luckily it is very fun to blue.

My new swim outfit is looking great. Mom signed me up for swimming again. Blah. There's this chubby 5 month old boy that smiles all the time and he's the teacher's pet. Really? Has he gotten teeth yet, gotten his bottle taken away? Does he really know what it's like to be a man? I think not. I remember those days...the glory days...oh to be 5 months old again.

Ha, no Mom, I'm not pooping in my new swimsut...I was...err....calling that 9 month old girl from class...

Blueberries are awesome. End of story.

They also make me poo in my pants several times a day. Pure joy!

I've been working on my couch surfing skills the past few days. Mom's not a fan though. Oh well guess it's her just being unsupportive of my talents. I will remember this for my future counseling sessions.

Oh, and here it begins. Mom was like that kid on the Huggies Jean diaper ads, well he's cute, but you're way cuter. Let's take some pictures and try to get you to replace him!

Just showing the full muscle-ness that is Brady. Watch out Dad, I will win.

You know, I originally thought the patio door shot was a little lame, but I get it, it works.

Rascal was like, "Hey Brady, try eating your foot."

I fell for it again, yuckk!!!

Rascal, my mentor, is disappointed. I think I remember him watching saying, this is so wrong, so wrong!

This one may be the winner. Look at my teeth!

Or maybe this one?

I had to take a break. Modeling is hard work.

And I'm back!

Ladies, I can make this one in poster size if you'd like for your walls.

Umm no mom, I will not show off my belly again....

Oh well, if it's what the ladies want!

Huggies Jean Diapers Model, you better watch out, Brady Brian Ross is after your job!


Life with a Toddler

Wow, it's been a long time since I've blogged last, I apologize! Life has been pretty crazy lately for us in Nebraska. Brady is a walking, temper tantrum having, active little toddler now! After a few days of being hesitant about walking, Brady just took off and now loves to run everywhere! He thinks it's hilarious how good he is at walking now too! Although Brady got into everything before, he can now get into everything much faster! He now gets much more upset when I stop him from hurting himself or getting into something he shouldn't have too, thus the temper tantrums. I had friends over the other night and they commented that he has tantrums like a 2 year old would. Oh goodie, lucky me. So hopefully we will go through the "terrible twos" early and then we will have smooth sailing! (One can hope, right?!)

We miss Brian everyday. We are getting closer and closer to the day that he shall come home, and I honestly cannot wait. Brady has changed so much in the time that he's been gone that I bet Brian will spend hours just staring at his little boy wondering where the baby went. We try and skype with Brian everyday now and it's been so good to see him and have Brady see him. Brady really knows the skype sound and runs to the computer yelling, "Dada, Dada!" It is so cute. I even got in on video because Brian didn't believe me! I think it's so neat that he sort of gets it, but still breaks my heart at the same time because that's the way it has to be. And now everytime I go on the computer too, Brady sees it, and says "Dada, Daddy!" It's hard trying to explain that his da-da doesn't live in the computer! We don't know the exact date of when he will return but it should be less than a month from now! :)

I've been keeping extra busy a la Brady. We do Baby Maestro on Mondays, Gymboree on Wednesdays, and a playdate every Thursday, followed by swimming at nighttime. The weather has been finally getting nice again so we have been going to parks and going on lots of walks and have just been trying to stay busy! I also recently hosted a baby shower for my friend here Danielle. I've been working hard on my deployment diet and have lost 10 pounds so far (although I should really sue Dairy Queen for being on the road I travel most days!).

Rascal is his normal self. He barks a lot, plays ball a lot, chases bunnies, and gets along with his brother most of the time. It's big time bunny season in Papillion right now, so he spends most of his day outside running with the bunnies. My tough dog! Here are some recent pictures:

My active little boy!

Brady and I on Mother's Day. We ran into a friend at the park and she was nice enough to take this for us! :)

Danielle's baby shower. Brady saw the diaper boxes and pushed all of them to his room. They were size 1 though so I made him return them to Danielle.

He is obsessed with my phone. So sorry if any of you get a random call from me, most likely Brady is the culprit!

Look at him go!

His shirt says AIR FORCE Pooper Trooper Offutt AFB!

He's getting so big!

Brady off and running!

That's Brady's World!!!

Well hiya there, folks! It's Brady, everyone's favorite baby (well, toddler now) man!! Wowzers I have been so busy lately. Not that I don't have time for you all (especially the ladies) but I've just been busy. My mustache is growing in nicely, I'm about to get my driver's license, and I am now potty trained (not listed in order of importance). I also just turned 1 and that was quite the experience. Here are some pictures of my latest adventures:

My mom woke me up at the buttcrack of dawn. "It's your birthday!" she exclaimed. Cool mom. Does she not remember that I have had a birthday every month on the 24th?

Ok, ok I'm liking this birthday thing so far. I'm getting an awesome chair, awesome pajamas. Nice!

Wait it's Easter too? By golly this is the BEST DAY EVER!!!

Oh crap. Take this thing off right now! Rascal thinks that I am a bunny and I'm pretty sure he's going to eat me!!

Oh yes, this day is turning out real good. First presents, then Dairy Queen. I declare this day THE BEST ONE THUS FAR!

Nautical theme, so in right now. (Cover of my US BABY magazine shoot)

What you people get paid to sing to babies? Really? How lame is your life, honestly?

Oohh fire, and worms. I declare this THE BEST TIME I'VE HAD

Please explain why we went to the Rainforest Cafe for my birthday dinner. Do people normally enjoy being overstimulated?

Don't hate cuz I've got a little P in my mouth, don't hate.

Oh yeah these jerks took away my bottle and formula. So now I have to resort to cups and whole milk.

Good thing I'm a star at doing both now. Make that a superstar!

My Godmother, she's cool. That is all.

This was my second birthday party. Cool guys, thanks for coming. I have important business to do with my fire truck, sorry.

Really momarazzi? Really? Can't a kid eat in peace at his birthday party? Sheesh!

Yeah, yeah Sharday I know you're there. I know you need a lot of attention, but a man needs to eat to keep up with all of his girlfriends.

I could get used to this cake every weekend thing! Heck yes!!

What? Don't hate it until you've tried it. Easiest clean up ever.

Ugh. Another fire call during my party. A man has to work, even during his own birthday party.

My great grandparents even came too! I was a little nervous because of the pinching last time, but everyone was on their best behavior.

Oh, I get it now Dad, I get it. Bacon is delish!

Please tell me someone else is having problems with all of these sunflowers?! Yikes, Claritin please!

Ice fishing: pointless, pure pointlessness (and yes, that is a word).

One more move and I'll jump! Haha I got you all!

And those jerk kids said I couldn't cross the bridge, ha showed them! (By the way, I'm at the Minnesota Children's Museum. NO, my mom did not redecorate the house.)

What are you looking at lady? Never seen a baby push his own stroller? Or just never seen anyone as good looking as me do it? Or both?

Then Gramps pulled me on the bus with him. Not my preferred mode of transportation, but I'm sure you can pick up lots of chicks.

So it was a rough night last night, sue me!

Yeah I can stand, text my girlfriends, and be outside all at once.

Then we went and saw the inside of Dad's plane. Now I understand why Dad likes to fly. SO MANY BUTTONS to push, I wanted to go crazy!!!

They also said that I looked so good in the co-pilots seat (and since I wore a co-pilot shirt the day before) that I could join on the spot.

I had to think about it. I mean, I am a strong, independent, good looking man....and there are cool buttons.....

No, no I don't want to leave my mommy!!! The back of the plane is scaryyyyy!!!
That was the end of that discussion.

See my top teefers now? I have two more coming in too. PURE HELL!

Don't hate, that baby was cute.

It would be more accurate if the shirt said Brady rocks the crib.

See, I told you I was freakin busy! If you aren't sick of me yet, here are some videos for your viewing pleasure.

Howling like a dog gets all of the ladies. Seriously, try it.

I am training for the world's strongest baby contest. I can lift an entire fire truck. Take that!

Again, howling=super cool.

Best new word I've learned....up.

Yeah, so I can walk now. NO big deal.
