Brendan also final fits in his overalls that Grandma and Grandpa L bought him back when we visited Illinois when he was only 3 months old. I think they may be the cutest thing he owns now. And loved them too- so much in fact that he let me take some pictures of him while he was being still.
I've been especially thankful for our little guy the last few days. My friend and co-worker Bryan and his wife Marcae lost their little girl Kate earlier this week after a long battle with different medical problems. She was such a sweet and strong little girl with amazing parents. We attended the funeral today and I was really touched by the Spirit there. I have definitely been more grateful for my wonderful family and a sweet, healthy little boy. Especially one who looks so adorable in his engineer overalls.

But luckily we still have moments like these to make me feel like he's still my little baby.
Also, keep an eye out for an Easter post from Chris. He's a little busy finishing up his thesis this week and interviewing all over the valley, so it may be a few days. But it's coming, I promise- with lots of pictures too. We had a great time with some of Chris' family and Brendan loved every minute of it! So stay tuned!

We did warm Brendan back up with a nice hot bath that cheered him up immensely.
And meet the newest addition to our family. A brand new TV. We decided to spoil ourselves a little with our tax return. Don't worry- we saved the rest of it. We're not foolish enough to blow all of it. Chris made sure to find us some good deals and saved us a chunk of cash. So now we're enjoying watching TV in a whole new way. First the quality is enormously better. Wow. Second, we can actually see the entire screen. Our old TV wasn't formatted right or something since about an inch or so of the program would be cut off on the sides and bottom. It was incredibly annoying. Having the new TV definitely made up for my horrible race experience. Thanks to Chris for getting it! Also a big thanks to Jandon and Angela for letting us use their Jeep to haul our new TV stand (isn't it cute!? We got a good deal on it from Craig's List! I love the Internet). We couldn't have done it without Jandon's manual labor assisting Chris. Really. So now I'm resting my poor legs and complaining a lot about my shins hurting while watching our new TV! Here's a happy photo to end this post:
Brendan loves to climb up on this foot stool and watch all the exciting action at the gas station across the street. He jabbers away and occasionally says bye-bye to the cars going by and waves to them. He's so sweet. He has recently re-discovered his love of waving to everyone and anyone/thing. He'll often wave at inanimate objects. He's just got so much love!

One day when I got home from work, Chris told me that Brendan had gotten into a place he's never been before, which really scared me. had horrible pictures of the toilet or garbage can running through my head. Turns out it was just our bookshelf in the office. He managed to climb in and squeeze his little body on the shelf. I'd much rather have him play on the bookshelf. It's much cleaner.
He's getting very good at typing and manages to pull up windows and screens that I have no idea how to do without a mouse. It really is amazing. The computer was in process of shutting down one evening but Brendan got to it before it finished, somehow got it back to the start up screen and logged in as a new user. We seriously don't know how he did it.

I felt a little bad for waking him up but since it was almost time for him to get up anyways, it didn't last long.

I must admit that it makes me a little sad though. He doesn't look like my little baby with his new 'do. Cutting off a couple inches somehow made him look more like a little boy, which breaks my heart! Here's the before:
This was taken after church, right before we chopped of his cute hair. The tie was Chris' choice and it conveniently covered up the juice stains on his nice white shirt.
His hair was getting a little long and I do like the new short hair but it's so strange to see my little boy look so grown p! It was very difficult to get him to sit still and the tears were flowing strong by the end of it. Next time, I think we'll take Brendan to get his hair cut by someone trained to do so. It'll be worth it.
