Exactly 4 weeks until we are big 1 year olds!

Time flies when you are having fun! Wade and Brody are into everything!

Wade is always up on his two feet. Whether a wall, furniture, toys, his brother, the bathtub(gasp)...he is pulling up and standing. He is standing alone for long periods of time and almost letting go to walk from one point to another. He is the more laid back one, this month anyways, and takes everything in stride. He is quite the professor...studying everything and trying to figure out how things work. He loves to be chased and has developed a hysterical giggle that will melt your heart. Wade still loves to be held and think Teddy Graham's and mozzarella cheese are the best things in the world. He has seven teeth now and is working on his eighth.
Brody is a mess. A good mess that is. He is still ear piercing scream that will make your ears ring for hours. He screams when he is happy, sad, name it, he is screaming. It's like the movie Forest Gump-Scream, Brody, Scream. We have tried everything, from saying no, to screaming back, to removing him from the situation, to smacking his little hand. So, now we are just gritting our teeth and trying to ignore him when he screams. Figure if we give no reaction, it will lose the attention he is gaining and he will stop. Say a prayer! He is still a very loving child who is always smiling and doing his "O" face. He is a people person and loves to be surrounded by people. Brody loves the bath and anything to do with water. Popsicles still remain his favorite treat and yogurt melts are a strong second. He gives the best "open mouthed" kisses and hugs and has already figured out how to read people and act accordingly! He is a master at rolling the ball back and forth to us and thinks peek a boo is the best game in the entire world. He talks a lot of conversational gibberish and throws a ball with his left hand...Campbell's 2nd Birthday Party (thank you Lynnette for great photos!):
The birthday girl, Miss Campbell Leigh Hipsh!Gotta love the mohawk!Trying to get 3 kids to look at the camera is impossible. Oh Boy. Brody looks drugged, Campbell is guarding her paci because Wade is trying to steal it. I have my signature mouth open smile and Whitney is smilin' pretty!
Getting into EVERYTHING:
They are obsessed with the dog crates. So we put them in there and let them explore! It was pretty funny. Maybe once they are older, this will be a good place for time-out? ha ha JUST KIDDING!!!!!!!Swinging with Nana, and the mosquito's: are pics from their first time on a boat, first time in the Gulf and first time at Crab Island! Don't we live in Paradise?? The water looks like the pool water..................Campbell, Wade and Brody all passed out on the ride home. If you look closely, you can see Campbell has her little head resting on Wade's. It was sweet!
