My son, the Brawny Baby

Perhaps he's a lumberjack?
Or maybe just likes Brawny paper towels:
Either way, it's too hot in Houston for this outfit! (Which was actually worn earlier this month when it was unseasonably cool...)

Game Changer

On May 13th I walked into Bradley's room as he was finishing up his nap.

This is what I found:
And it hasn't stopped!

He loves to scoot to the window and watch the train go by:

And get into taller shelves:
Yep! This is a game changer! Bradley is on the move!

Bradley's First Mardi Gras

Not sure how I missed blogging about this...

Back in February, we took Bradley to his first Mardi Gras. He loved it!

Here are some family shots before our boys rolled on the nighttime parade. All were taken by our super talented photography pal (and sweet babysitter), Harley.

Bradley is wearing his crown: King Orion LXIII, as I'm sure he'll be following in the footsteps of his Papa P (King Orion XIII).

Here's a close-up (taken by my trusty iPhone):

All the boys pre-parade:
And the Hill family (minus babies Lucy and Maria):

After the parade, we danced the night away at the ball (also an iPhone pic... in case that wasn't obvious):
Bradley did not attend.

Many more good times to roll ahead, I'm sure!

Grocery Shopping

A quick trip to HEB just got a little more complicated.

Everyone wants to stop and chat with the handsome fellow in my shopping cart!

I guess I can't blame them...
