Don't let him fool you.

Don't let this cute little boy fool you. Braxten has been such a stinker lately, I'm hoping its just a stage he is going through.  He has started to throw fits...where do they learn this?  When he doesn't get his way or if I take something away he arches his back back and throws a fit if I am holding him or if he is on the floor.  He has gotten many nice bruises from hitting his head on the floor.  I just ignore him, so you would think he would learn to not throw them but nope...he still does.  Church is the worst, he wants to get down and play. Since I don't let him he throws huge fits.  I have to think of new exciting things to take to church to keep him busy.  This last Sunday was the first time we didn't have to take him out.  I'm crossing my fingers, hoping it continues. Sometimes I ask myself why do I even go to church I am usually out in the hall anyways.  I know that I'm suppose to be there though and so I try my best. 
It amazes me how much Braxten can destroy in just a few minutes.  He is into everything now.  No he is still not walking.  You ask how old is he...he is 15 months and no he is not walking yet.  I get told all the time "He should be walking by now."  Well we have tried to work with him and he just doesn't show any interest so no he shouldn't be walking by now...he will walk when he is ready...which isn't quite yet...don't judge.  He was a late crawler as well...he is just a bigger healthy baby and wants to take it slow.  He is still super smart.  He loves to play ring-a-round-the-rosie.  He loves reading stories.  He loves to color on everything.  He loves to play little games and sing songs. He loves playing with his buddies at playgroup (good excuse for us moms to get together) He loves to dance and listen to music. He loves to eat.  He is dad's little buddy and mom's little helper. He loves to play with balls and push cars around.  He loves riding in his car.  He loves animals. He loves bath time, usually he poops in it. He loves attention and when we laugh he thinks he is silly and will do it again. He is saying more and more words and he has a personality that is so fun. He loves eating crushed ice out of a cup by himself.  When I am making a meal he will come sit by my legs and beg. He loves to point at everything and go uhh to let you know what he wants. It's amazing how fast they learn things.  So even though he can be a little stinker most of the time.  There are moments that I enjoy.  I will always be grateful he is in our family and I will always love him to pieces no matter what.  Even though sometimes being a mother is frustrating it has its true joys and I wouldn't trade it for anything.  I love being a mom and being able to stay home and have a little buddy to hang out with.
