New Contnent

Brax has started walking a lot more, but mostly at other people’s homes. That might seem odd as most children don’t perform for strangers. In this situation, I think it’s a case of preference to teeter and fall on his butt where there is carpet to pad the fall. We have hard wood floors. This video was taken at the mall yesterday, where he decided he would walk despite some tile flooring.

Also, Brax has begun what I expect to be a long and illustrious career as a younger brother; he likes to shut the doors Bella wants open, follow her into whatever room she wants him out of, play with whatever toy she wants him to leave alone, and dive bomb her when she least expects it (He didn’t even need Ryan to teach him the move; he’s just a natural). Maybe you can sympathize with him. Bella sure doesn’t, which makes for a lot of screaming in our house lately.

Getting to Know You- Again

Interview with an ALMOST Three Year-Old from Cecilia Harvey on Vimeo.
I realize it's been a super long time since I've updated. So long, in fact, that some might feel like we are strangers- which is why I'm posting videos of our kiddies.
*please note: Bella actually does have a friend named Isabella, she wasn't saying she is her own best friend.

*also, please note: Brax can walk up to 8-10 steps, he just doesn't like to do it.

Another delayed post... Here are the things we are thankful for as a Harvey Family. I didn't actually take any pictures of our Thanksgiving festivities, so you get our thankfull-ness collages instead.

Halloween....I know it was a Long Time Ago

I know. Halloween was almost a month ago. Here are the pictures of our little celebration here in Texas


Dancing Spider Witch from Cecilia Harvey on Vimeo.
I thought all babies just had an innate sense of rhythm and liked to move it! move it! because Bella has been doing so since she was old enough to wiggle to a beat. Now I'm thinking Bella has a penchant for dancing because Brax is ten months old now and hasn't yet shown any of the aforementioned symptoms of dance enjoyment.

Video Time

Bella Singing from Cecilia Harvey on Vimeo.
When I read books to Bella that are written in verse I usually make up a tune and sing it to her instead of reading it to her (it would be appropriate to thank Heaven that you aren't around our house to witness this). Now Bella demands that I sing every book, whether it rhymes or not. Apparently she likes to do the same. Many of you Seuss-ologists out there may recognize her recitation of an excerpt from Hop on Pop.
*note: I know I should have warned you that she is on the potty in this video, but it doesn't show anything shady so I chose not to.

Braxton Caterpillar Army Crawl from Cecilia Harvey on Vimeo.
Brax has developed and perfected a unique style of crawling that looks like a hybrid between an army crawl and a caterpillar scoot. I don't know why, but he likes to drag himself across the floor and has been doing so for several months now. I thought some of you might want to see it. He's actually pretty efficient at it now.

Brax is Up from Cecilia Harvey on Vimeo.
He is up now! He actually almost knocked himself out the other day when he crawled into the bathroom, pulled himself up on the tub, and landed inside it head first. It's a good thing the tub is always empty unless someone is in it. He escaped with no injuries besides an imprint of the bottom of the tub stamped on his forehead. Also, this video was taken just before nap time. As you might note, his smile wasn't forthcoming. That's his version of ornery. I'll choose it over crying and fussiness, every time.
