5 years ago ...

Yesterday was our 5 year anniversary since our first date!

Back in the day...

Wow, I used to be thin and spray tanned...

And now...

I surprised Chris by taking him out to Ruth Chris. When he got home from work I was in my lounge pants and a t-shirt and he started to hook up our new Wii Fit (woo-hoo!) and I told him to go get dressed up. He looked at me with this blank stare and I said "Mom and Dad are here." He started looking around the house like I had lost it and I explained that they were in the driveway waiting to come in and babysit so that we could have a night out to celebrate! He was soooo shocked, it was great!
Last weekend we took Brayden for his first walk around our neighborhood.
Daddy and the other boys (Mossy is on the right and Buster on the left):

And me with the little man!


We've since been to the Promenade a few times and walked around. Brayden loves his stroller rides! My brother has come over yesterday and today and Brayden is fascinated by him. He just stares and him and follows his every move. It's so cute.
Brayden's other new favorite people, we've never met in real life...you see, if he so much as here's Jon and Kate plus 8 on anywhere in the house he starts going nuts until you let him see the tv. It's hilarious. He just loves to watch their kids on the screen. I have to pause it sometimes when he's taking him bottle because he gets so focused on the show!
Tomorrow if all goes well, we will be going to a wedding...I'm so nervous that Brayden will cry or something (of course, I'd take him out of there if he does). I'll have pics of him all dressed up!

Happy anniversary! I bet Brayden will do great at the wedding! If there are other kids present, just sit by them and let them "entertain" your little guy (that is what I do at church).

Hi, I've been following your blog since Brayden was born.
Happy anniversary and you both look great in both sets of photos. You have a maturity about you now and still very pretty.

Glad Brayden is doing well. Glad you got to go out for dinner.

Congratulations on your five-year date anniversary! Isn't it great that Spring is here and you can get outside with Brayden?! I think you will find that being outside in the fresh air will tire Brayden, and he will take some nice long naps for you. Enjoyed the picture of Mossy and Buster...Goldens are wonderful! Enjoy your weekend...Brayden gets cuter every day!

Yeah for Golden Retrievers! They're the best! It looks like you have two beautiful dogs who will make great friends for Brayden.

How fun!! I'm so glad you were able to go on a date! Isn't great having parents that live nearby? I LOVE that my parents are up here so we are able to go out to dinner every once in a while. You look super cute with your belted sweater! I love purple on blondes.:) Brayden looks as sweet as pie in his pictures. I hope you had a great weekend!

Brayden has good taste- J&K+8 is one of my favorite shows too! And my 18 month old loves it as well! It's great, when she's having a rough time I just put in a tape my sister, Kendra, made me of the show and we both chill out. Cadence loves watching all the little kiddos. That's too funny about Brayden being enamoured with the show as well.

Happy Anniversary- you guys are just too cute. So happy you got a night out just the two of you. Date Nights are so impportant. Good luck with the wedding!

Amanda said...
