Dear Santa...

You know how when you see Santa holding a baby, they're usually crying their eyes out because they don't know who this strange man is with the white beard? Well, Bradley wasn't scared at all, he was SOOOO curious. He just stared at Santa and didn't smile or cry. I can't believe how big he looks in these pictures!

i can only dream...

(fyi- Bradley is napping and I am bored, so I thought I would post something that was on my mind the other day while at the mall.)

I love Christmas shopping because I love to shop and give gifts, but I also hate it because it reminds me what I can't afford. JCREW is my one true love and someday I will buy this outfit. Then again, if I had loads of money I don't think I would spend this much on 1 outfit, but its fun to dream. What are some things you would buy if money was no object?

June and Bradley. They were best buds all week!

Bradley got caught in the toy bin. It was sad, but pretty funny.

At dinner with Adam and Aaron's friend Blair.

Aaron, Blair, and Adam.

Bath time with the cousin!

Myself, Michelle, and Jenny with the babies.

I wish I took more photos during Thanksgiving break, but here are some I took. We drove up to Danville for the Holiday and I must say I LOVE it up there. I love the weather, tall trees, and the feeling I get when we visit. I have to say, I think I'm a northern California girl at heart :)

practice makes perfect

Last week Adam and I bought Bradley a walker and it's so cute to watch him move his little legs. This was right after we bought it and about his second time using it. Every day he gets faster and balances better. Our little boy is growing up SO fast and we can't slow him down!

a great start to november

The first week in November my Mom came to visit my sisters and I. She stayed a few days at each of our homes (since we all live about an hour apart; Orange County, Riverside, and San Diego). Bradley was all smiles for his Grandma Maxwell! It was also my Birthday on the 8th, so my best friends Megan and Tiffany drove down for a fun dinner. We've been friends for over 14 years! Crazy, huh?? Adam also took me out for a great Vietnamese dinner. It's been a great start to November, to say the least!

i already miss halloween

We had such a great Halloween! It is such a fun holiday and I'm sad it's already over. We went to a pumpkin patch and our wards Trunk or Treat. Our great friends Buddy and Sara drove down to join us for the Trunk or Treat and our trunk won for best Halloween decor! I have to say that we couldn't have won without Buddy and Sara's rad trunk, but we like to think we contributed a little :) I loved Bradley's costume and I was surprised he kept it on all night. Costumes are so much fun and I can't wait for next year!

Still no teeth...hmm

So Bradley is now 9 months old and still has NO teeth! Should I be worried? I keep telling myself that they will come...and they still haven't come. What if he has no teeth under those gums?!?!

funny faces

the hyper face
the guilty face (he's about to dive into Silo's dog toys)

the playful face

and my personal favorite...the crazy face

Look at him move!

This is what Bradely does all day, every day; he books it to Silo's food bowl! Motherhood is definitely harder now that I can't leave the room without Bradley getting into something.

June and Bradley with Grandma Lauper :)

Well SO much has happened since my last post. The first weekend in August Adam and I were able to visit Seattle for little June's baby blessing. June is Aaron and Michelle's baby girl. She is so cute and looks just like her mommy. I have to say that I love Seattle. I just love the greenery and cooler weather. It's funny how I live in San Diego, but crave rain and clouds, haha.
That next weekend Adam's brother Michael came to visit. They drove up for their cousins graduation at Pepperdine in Malibu. We had good food and played some fun games! Bradley had fun with his Uncle Michael too :)

On August 13th I flew up to Utah for Cliff's homecoming! Cliff is home!! He served in Jacksonville, FL and returned with honor. It was so fun to listen to his mission stories and to catch up on life. The night before he got home it felt like I hadn't seen him in 10 years, but now that's he's home it feels like he never left. It was so great to be with all my siblings again and extended family. I was able to see cousins I haven't seen in forever and aunts and uncles, and of course my sweet Grannie. It was fun to see Bradley play with his little cousins too.
