Around the corner

After shopping with my mother this weekend, it became evident that the time to show my "after baby" body is just around the corner. Spring and summer clothes are out, bathing suit displays are EVERYWHERE, and my husband purchased me my first tanning bed package in 2 years. Uh oh...

So, this Sunday's family food trip to Wal-Mart was quite different. There was a lot more fruit and a lot less carbs in this weeks grocery cart.

My hope is that this summer I have a precious toddler that will get all the attention. That way my forever changed bathing suit body WON'T!

The difference a week makes...

I thought Brayden changed a lot in a week, but the weather has proven things can change qicker than I thought! Last week snow...this week summer! We had to take advantage of the beautiful day God blessed us with, so we took Brayden to the playground for the first time!

Trying to steal daddy's sunglasses...
You will see this face quite frequently today...
Daddy helping Brayden as he goes down the slide for the first time!

His slide friend!

Aparantly this is the face of choice this month...

My favorite picture from the day...
And we finished it off with a trip to Sonic for slushies!! Brayden is a fan of the cherry slush!

Sharp dressed man!

What an amazing day the weather gave us! I had to get Brayden out and enjoy the day. Since daddy was in Charleston all day with soccer, JJ and I took Brayden to buy his FIRST pair of shoes and stroll around outside at Sandhills!!! He is wanting to walk all over the place (holding onto things of course), so I knew it was time to start looking for our first big purchase!
First we got him measured....my big boy!!! Size 3.5 WIDE! This measurement made me realize I need to exchange ALL the shoes I have recently purchased at Gymboree!
After finding his size we tried on some shoes :)

And made sure they were a good fit!

Brayden sat with JJ while I bought his first pair of new shoes. Mommy was super excited! The Stride Rite people were great-recommend them highly!

When we got home, we took a stroll in the wagon to enjoy the weather some more. Brayden couldn't keep his hands off his bells for the first few minutes!!
Too precious!

After our stroll, I let Brayden walk with his toys in the yard for a while. We had to break in his new shoes!! He had a fall in the grass which led to this allergic reaction....like father like son. It didn't seem to bother him too much thank goodness. What an amazing day we had...
