Look Who's Sitting Up!

Brady finally got his balance just right so that he could sit up on his own a couple of weeks ago. Yea!
Here he is just as happy as can be... chewing on Pinky the bunny.

He loves to sit up in the cart now too. I love this picture... too bad I can't find that hat any more! I think it got left behind at swim class and I'm guessing it's on another child's head now. :(

Since Brady is sitting on the floor a lot more now, his toys are just sitting empty... but thanks to Jackson they are still getting some use. My little tiger loves to play with Brady's toys. I've found him sitting in his bumbo, bouncy seat, jump-a-roo and exer-saucer in the past couple of weeks. He's a silly boy.

Christmas Train

Every year the Arkansas-Missouri Railroad hosts a Christmas train ride with Santa. It was Jackson's and Brady's first train ride. It was a long, very cold wait for the train, but we finally boarded the train and rode from Springdale to Lowell and back. On the train we got to see Santa and Mrs. Claus, but Jackson was careful not to get too close after the debacle at the Promenade... see picture below. Here are a few pictures from our trip.

Here's the train we were on. It was built between 1914 and 1917 and was used in the movie Biloxi Blues filmed in Van Buren in 1987.

Jackson and Daddy waiting to board the train.

I LOVE this picture of Brady. He so happy all the time and is just giggling away here in his warm teddy bear outfit. It was a COLD morning... I think he was the only warm one!

Jackson is checking out the sites as we rode the rails. He was so excited!

Jackson is keeping his distance from Santa here. He loves Santa, but only from a distance.

The day before the Christmas train, we visited Santa in the mall. It didn't go over well with either child.
