December Already!

I know, I know it has been forever since I last posted! Between their birthday, Thanksgiving, school, church, etc. we have been pretty busy around here. AND we found out what our new addition is going to be in April....a little girl, Kylie Reese!!!!
Braden is ALL over the place now! He started walking this week and I am afraid that running is right around the corner! When he is quiet, I know that is up to something like playing in the toilet, rolling the toilet paper off the roll, pulling books off the shelf, eating something that is not edible, and the list could go on and on. He has really developed his own little personality this past month. He makes us laugh all the time.
Reed is still just scooting everywhere. We like to call him our little monkey by the way that he "crawls"! I think that it might be easier when he learns to walk on his own because he LOVES to walk 90 to nothing holding on to your hands. He is now getting frustrated when he sees B walking so I am sure this will encourage him along to start walking just like B encouraged R to start crawling. Reed had a a couple of whiny weeks but once we took him to the doctor and realized that he had an ear infection, the whining made sense. He has been much better this week! I wish you could see him eat...he shovels food in his mouth like he is afraid someone is going to steal it!
My little helpers. Why is it that all kids love to play in the dishwasher?
The boys love to read books. Their favorite books are the peek-a-boo books.
I know that I look like death in this picture but this is what bottle time is like if they both want to be held at night. Don't you love the position of both of their arms.
Coke anyone? If he could only learn to open the can.
This is one of the many funny expressions that Braden will make. I am not for sure where he got this from but hopefully not me!
Reed and Braden love to play in Nana's pantry. I am waiting for someone to break a toe from letting a soup can fall off onto their feet. They love to push the cans around and chase them.
This is a rare occasion where Reed is actually pushing Braden off. It is definitely usually the other way around.
Guilty or Not Guilty????
For Thanksgiving break, Ryan and I flew to New Orleans with the boys. They did very well on the plane but I cannot imagine a flight longer than 1.5 hours! I do not know how in the world we would have entertained them for that long!
Below is Reed, cousin Colin and Braden in the pj's Sean and Sheena bought the boys.

Great Grandma Lelda teaching the boys how to beat on the metal chair and make as much noise as possible:-)
Thanks Grandma Lelda for having us and loving on our boys!

Lik yo sid they have their very own personalities and they are just great. They are so sweet and loving. And the three of them together was great. Wait till they visit you all after Christmas it ought to be great. I'm glad Braden is waking I figured he would. He was just so determined to go last week.

So excited about a girl! Girls are so much fun, too. I am about to get rid of a lot of cute girl's clothes. Send me an email at mel_mallicoat@yahoo.com if you would like to look at anything. Dressy, casual, PJ's...I have it all! The boys are so adorable. Katelyn is starting to stand up with "no hands" so I am sure that walking is just around the corner for us too.
