This is one of his favorite toys, hes even getting strong enough to where he can pull down on it and make it vibrate!
For Christmas I got Brody the Rainforest Gym. He absolutely loves his new toy, he cant get enough of it. He really seems to like the music and the lights. He is the kind of baby that can only be entertained by one thing for so long, so he wont stay under there for hours, but 20 minutes or so works for me! I added some other toys onto the empty hocks, he especially seems to like this one toy, I don't even really know what to call it...maybe a lion. Anyways it has these big colored feet that he loves to suck and chew on. And of course he loves his mirror, everyone is always telling him how good looking he is I guess he just wants to see what all the fuss is about.
This year was defiantly one of the best Christmas's Iv ever had thanks to my little angel Brody. I have a whole new outlook on life now that I'm a mommy. I love him so so much, I cant even begin to descirbe how much I love my son! He means everything to me, he is my world and I can imagine a day without him in it. Brody is the best Christmas present I could ever hope for. He always seems to put a smile on my face no matter what mood I'm in, I even think he cry is cute! I can defiantly tell that my life is different now and that I'm a mom, other Christmas's Iv always been so excited to get presents and I was this year but I was way more excited to buy presents for Brody and see him play with them. I can also tell my life is totally different because the one thing I actually asked for was a rocking chair...haha what a mom thing to do. Christmas really is a great time to have a new baby around.
What a typical boy, not interested in clothes. He just wanted to get to the good stuff...the toys!
This is a daily routine for Brody and I, I guess Christmas is no exception. One outfit usually doesn't last too long. I keep having to get him bigger diapers because he has so many blow outs!
Uncle Evan bought Brody a shirt and this pair of shoes for Christmas. We found these baby converse and just couldn't resist, they are so stinkin cute! His feet are so big that Evan had to buy a size 2 for him, and there's not a whole lot of room to spair.
Grandpa Jensen came down and stayed with us on Christmas. It's always nice to see him since we don't get to that often. It's also nice to have family around during the Holidays. We all wished that Grandma Straley would have come and stayed with us but she doesn't like to travel so she stayed home. I'm always glad when Great Grandparents get to see Brody.

"Okay guys, seriously I swear I just saw a man in red with a beard walk behind me"
Once again napping, I think this whole Christmas thing Is wearing him out or something, Mommy's not complaining though.

While Brody was in my stomach he liked to suck on his wrist. He would suck it so hard or for so long that when I had him he had sucked the skin right off. Lately he has gotten back into the habit and has also become completely fascinated with his fist, if he could figure out how to put his whole fist into his mouth and suck it he would. Very rarely will he take a pacifier, he just likes to suck on his hand or wrist. This morning I was carrying him downstairs and I noticed he was sucking on his wrist again, the next thing I knew he had given himself a hickie!

Brody and I were out at Shad and Tawnya's house when he decided to have a major blow out..and I'm talking major! It would have taking tons of wiped to clean it all up so Tawnya and I just gave him a bath instead. She doesn't have a baby bath so we just put a little bit of water in the bath tub and I held his head up. He looked so cute in it, and really he didn't even look as little as I thought he would in a big bath tub. Hes starting to get a new habit of sticking out his tongue a lot, especially in the bath, I guess he thinks the water tastes good.

First off I have to explain that I am a very indecisive person, I mean very. I have gotten better over the years but I still cant seem to make big decisions without other people opinions. I am going to buy Brody a jumper for Christmas and I cant decide which one I want. I absolutely loved the Baby Einstein jumper the first time I saw it. I also absolutely hated the Rainforest Jumper the first time I saw it, but when my Mom and Dad said they like the Rainforest one better I couldn't decide. It seems like the Rainforest jumper has more things to grab and touch, but I still like the Baby Einstein one....Which one do you guys like better?
And here's the Rainforest Jumper

For some reason he didn't seem to be too happy in his little church outfit, I guess hes just not used to being that dressed up. My Mom and I decided that the real reason why he was upset was because he was all dressed up but the poor little guy didn't have a date. I told him Id be his date but he didn't seem to go for that.

Today went alot better then I thought it would. Brody had his two month shots. The last time he got his little foot pricked he FREAKED out, so I was a little nervous about this. But I just told myself its the best thing for him and he has to get it done so really there's nothing I can do. He did really good though. He did freak out when the nurse gave him his 4 shots, but as soon as I picked him up he was fine. He was perfect for Dr. Lane, actually when Dr. Lane was checking his heartbeat he was smiling and talking to him, it was so cute. He now weighs a whooping 15 pounds and is 24 1/2 inches long. His head is measuring at 21 which means its grow quiet a bit from last time we had it checked and it was at 15. When the nurse was putting all of his information into the computer to get his percentage she was shocked, she said " WOW I didn't realize he was that big", Her reaction was to his 97 percentile for both weight and height. Dr. Lane said that he is looking great, he looks healthy and happy and I'm doing a great job...Its nice to hear that from a professional.
If you ask me he looks like a pretty happy baby for just getting a whole bunch of shots!

Today Brody is two months old! Honestly I know people say this all the time but it really does feel like I was just in the hospital giving birth to him, and now I turn around and hes two months old. Its insane how fast they grow up. His personality is growing and coming out more and more every day. Little things about him are changing...his lips are filling out, his hands and feet are getting even bigger and his eyebrows are getting darker so you can actually tell he has some (something he defiantly did not get from his mommy). He is become quiet the little talker as well. He will chat your head off let me tell you. And he is just about the smiliest baby I have ever meet, he is full of smiles just waiting for anyone who gives him a happy face. He is getting alot stronger too, he is holding his head up very well, but hes been doing that for a while now. He still has the little head bob but hes holding it up well for a two month old. He is so strong with his legs, he just loved to push up against you with them. I think that he thinks hes bigger and older than he is, hes already trying to use those legs for something.
Here's just a little glimpse of the Brodster smile.
Brody was absolutely fascinated by the blanket I layed him on, we couldn't even get him to look away from it. He has also picked up an old habit of his. When he was born the doctor noticed a spot on his wrist where it looked like the skin was rubbed off or something, I didn't really know what it was or what to think. Dr. Hernandez automatically said he was a wrist sucker, so in my stomach he was just a sucken away on that wrist, there's even still a mark from in (maybe a scar). Well a couple weeks ago he started doing it again. Hes a shoulder baby, he LOVES to be up on your shoulder so his wrist is always right there and he sucks on it. And I finally got the picture to prove it! This picture also shows his little elf ear haha, only his left ear is like that though.

Just as we have fallen in love with Emma and her other two girls Everyone has fallen in love with Brody. It's so cute to see everyone around him, they cant keep their hands off of him! He is defiantly one loved little boy. Especially Erika and Natalie, It's fun to see them almost fight over him.
Here's all the kids Erika, Brody, Lauren, Emma and Evan. They absolutely love spending time together. They always seem to be able to find something to do and they have a blast doing it. You would think they wouldn't have that much in common being that they have three girls and then there's Evan, but they all get along so well.
