9 months old!

It is so hard for us to believe that we will be planning a birthday party for Brendan in a few months! Where has all the time gone?!
Brendan is definitely an independent little guy. He hates to be contained and is really only happy when he can crawl around the house. He is an expert crawler now and is getting into just about EVERYTHING! He pulls himself up on all the furniture, whether the item is stationary or not, and scoots along the furniture. He is trying so hard to clap and wave and is really almost there! He has 2 two teeth on the bottom and we think we might have caught something coming in on the top. He loves to eat and continues to cry while he is eating because mommy just cannot feed him fast enough! He has started some of his stage 3 foods and is liking them so far! His sleeping habits are getting a little better. He is only waking up 1-2 times at night instead of 3-4, plus, he is starting to find more comfort in his bed and sleep is becoming easier for us at night and during the day because he likes sleeping in his own bed! He continues to laugh hysterically at Liam and loves it when Liam includes him in his play!
Brendan has such a big personality and is really just a happy guy all the time. We are so blessed by him and cannot believe that he is almost 1!

Sea World!

A couple weeks ago we took a trip to Sea World with Auntie Brittany, Auntie Leanne and Kara, and Auntie Laura and Aliva. It was just a girls and kids weekend. We had lots of fun on our first trip there. Liam had been talking about going there for weeks, and he couldn't believe the day was finally here! We had lunch at a local park, which was great for the kids and the wallet! We got a hotel, which ended up being a great idea, and we were able to take a break from the heat and rest and swim, then go back later in the evening! Liam was a trooper. He had 1 melt down during the day and was the only kid that didn't fall asleep until 930pm!
Liam so excited to go to Sea World!
