Brex's Stats...

Now that Breckin is almost over 5 months old {sigh} I thought it was time I update you on some of his vital stats.

Mr. Breckin began to roll over at about 4 months and 1 week.

He has been chewing like a mad man since three months of age (when Dixon got his first teeth), but to no avail...still no chompers. :)

He has about 75% less hair than he was born with.
At his 4 month check up (and two weeks) Breckin weighed in at 14.1 pounds (the 50th percentile) and was 26 inches long (the 80th percentile). Big brother has always been around the 25th for weight and the 75th for height.

Since starting rice cereal (I forgot how messy this is!) B-Rex has become much more regular! Happy belly, happy baby!

He continues to be on Zantac after a weekend without and calling the pharmacist in on a Sunday, we now know that it is necessary for everyone's health.

He likes to hang out in the Rain forest Jumperoo, but not for extened periods of time. He is on a 30 minute max.

B still enjoys spending time in his swing. But has been falling asleep in my arms a lot more lately (Here we go again ;)).

He likes to stay up until around 10:30 or 11 and usually wakes up to eat around 3:30 or 4. But goes back to sleep right away.

And I really don't mean to brag, except that's the point of this site, when I say that people are constantly saying what a beautiful baby he is.

We can't help but agree.

...I'm not a fan of sepia for pictures. Unless it involves my oldest climbing a fence on an overcast day at his Grandpa Don and Grandma Chris's house. Then I am. A fan, that is. :)

a boy and his wagon

Boy oh boy does this boy love his wagon. 
He loves to ride in it and he also loves to load it up full of his belongings and pull them around.  
One of these days I'm sure he will be tossing baby Brex in there for a spin!

If you speak Kendra, you will know that can't has several meanings. It is a complete sentence on it's own.

For example you would say "Can't" when you see pictures of a newborn baby that is too cute for words.

You might also say, "Can't." when you see that Heidi Montage has had her 47th plastic surgery.

If both of your kids are screaming and your house is a pit you might post, "Can't" as your facebook status."

When I first saw this video on Missy's blog, then Heather's I definietly was thinking "Can't." As in, it is too funny.

I even did the "funny test" with my 16 year olds at school and even they laughed...

Have I mentioned...

that Dixon loves yogurt. 

Specifically Yopliat Whips. 

In any flavor, but chocolate mousse.

He would have it with every meal, if he could.

And let's be honest, he usually can.

time for a little r & r.

And we don't mean rest and relaxation...

We are talking about Rachel and Rob! 

My best friend from waaaaaaaay back came home from California to visit. In high school we lived only 187 steps away from each other and believe me, we wore out that path. It has been well over 10 years since we sat by each other in Spanish II and I was mesmirzed by her plastic rings and hemp necklaces and she by my blue eyeshadow and glitter application skills. We don't get to see each other often, but when we do it seems like not a day has passed since we were wearing velour leopard and blue camo outfits.

I was so excited for this trip because Rachel brought her boyfriend Rob, who I had never met. This was also her first time meeting little Breckin.Rob was just as awesome as Rachel described him. And Rachel took to baby Breckin right away! She loves these two little boys soooo much. :)

We only got to spend a little over 48 hours together, but we made the most of it! We ate at the Mexican restaurant, and the new dessert place in town. We strolled around the square and attended our little brother's soccer game and ate a a good Chinese place nearby. We obviously didn't take enough pictures, but we were far too busy laughing and reminiscing.

I had the best time having my bestie so close. I'm  working very hard on getting out to SF this summer to see her!

all them mocha gotta do pilates

Has baby Breckin been listening to his Kanye West?

Most of the time when he is laid down on his back he immediatley goes into the v-up position. 

 It's like he is just ready to sit up, already...:)

Work it out Brex.

d or b?

Everyone is always asking if the boys look alike. 
I always think that they do, very much so. 
Maybe it is more that they act alike...

See for yourself...
Can you tell the difference between D and B at around 4 months old?

If you can I will be giving away an ipad, just like MckMama, give you the satisfaction of telling the difference between my darling boys.

the return of not me's!!! has been a while since I have taken a crack at one of these, so here goes!

This past week I did not accomplish the task of getting every.single.piece of clothing washed folded and put away THEN come to realize when every.single.piece of clothing is clean no one has enough dresser space.

I am not about ready to pee my pants because my friend Rachel is coming in on Wednesday. I have TONS of friends and a booked social calendar so there is no need to get excited about something like that.

I did not go almost one whole week without giving Brex a bath. No. With Dixon I gave a bath every three days, just as the pediatrician recommended. I do the exact same with my second born as I did with my first born.

Last week I did not post two easy way out picture post, just to make it seem that I would not go over a week without posting to the blog.

In those last two posts some of the pictures where not over 3.5 months old. No way. The point of this blog is to keep friends and family up to date.

I did not have to throw away some of my children's May Day candy to prevent myself from eating it. I have total self control. If I did throw it away I would not need to throw something else away to cover it in the trash can to prevent myself from digging it out. Again, total self control.

How about you? Have you dumpster dived in your own trash? Let your baby go for a week without a bath? Good! Then  join the fun over at MckMama's blog. :)

long lost

treasure Breckin photos. 
Long, long ago when Brex was just a little bitty baby we were heavy on visitors and short on time. 
The following are some of the amazing visits we had to see our little man.
