Birthday Boy Hubby

Ryan just had his birthday and can now rent cars without paying extra for his youth! Yay! Here in Sugar Land we were having flash flood warnings and pouring rain all day (fall out from Hurricane Alex), but that didn't stop us from venturing to Red Robin for his birthday dinner.
Bella was excited to see Jayhawk there (she thinks the Red Robin mascot is a Jayhawk- Ryan has brainwashed her) and had all kinds of fun around the restaurant while I fed Braxton. Ryan had registered on the Red Robin website and so they gave him a free meal on his birthday. Yayhoo!
We love you honey! Happy Birthday!

Blessing Suit

I know this is a little out dated (in proportion to Braxton's life span thus far, 1 month is a long time), but here is a belated picture of Brax in his baby blessing outfit. My mom made it for him and he was super cute in it. I would love to tell you that his blessing was amazing and inspiring, but the truth is that I couldn't hear much of it over Bella yelling, "What eee Daddy doeee?" over and over until the blessing was over.

Braxton is now 5 months old and he is still as sweet as ever. We started feeding him rice cereal a week ago and he is such a good eater! He doesn't clamp his mouth shut to prevent food from entering. He doesn't grab the spoon and fling it all over me and the wall and everything else within a 5 foot radius, and he swallows more than he regurgitates. It's amazing. Bella could absorb a few of those qualities and I wouldn't complain.
