Time certainly flies!

I can't believe its been over a month since I have blogged! I really need to get on the ball and make time as things change so fast with an infant! Today is the day... Brennan and I are heading to California for a visit! I wish it was a longer visit, but since I am driving its only really 4 full days. Of course, everyone wants their visit with Brennan. I don't think his feet will even touch the ground the whole time we are there. Between Deanna's girls and all of my friends wanting to meet him and hold him, he may come home pretty well spoiled! It will be a nice change of pace for me as well! I need some girl time! Oh! The bonus of this trip, we are picking up Jeremy on the way! He has been at his dads for about 6 weeks spending his summer with his other family and playing in the Colorado River. I'm sure he has a better tan than I do, which at this point wouldn't be hard.
Ok, so for the last month in the lives of us... Brennan has started laughing at some of the simplist things! My mom will make a noise that resembles Daffy Duck, and he just falls into the cutest laughter! Its funny, when my mom walks into the room, he just has the biggest grin for her! I don't see the draw. LOL Brennan has started sleeping through the night, sort of. Sometimes he will for several days in a row, and then just stop for a few. We also started him on veggies! He seems to tolerate them, not at all excited. I think he just eats them because he's hungry. I am pretty sure when he learns how to "reject" what I am feeding him, I will know. He talks a lot, and has learned how to roar like a really small lion! LOL Brennan rolls over from front to back and back to front... although her really doesn't care for being on his stomach still. He only lasts a few minutes there, unless he finds a toy to keep his interest for a minute or two more!
We spent the 4th of July in Colorado with my dad and family. That was a nice trip and a nice break from the heat of Texas! I don't think the temperature went above 80 degrees. Brennan got to meet his Aunt Lori, Aunt Linnea, Uncle Chris and Aunt Kelly plus spend some time with Papa Snow and Grandma Judy. The picture above is Brennan with his Uncle Chris and the ones below are Brennan's 4 month pictures and a picture of me with my Aunt Lori in Manitou Springs, CO.
