STATS – (at 23 months)
loves: bunny rabbits, puzzles, animal games on his ipad, animal anything really, bath time, “nigh nigh time”
dislikes: pretty much all food in general besides a few select things, luke stealing his balls, not getting his way, being confined in anything that wont let him run free.
new achievements: his vocabulary is huge, counting and recognizing letters, knowing the rhythm and words to songs… seeing his little brain grow is incredible!

I don’t even know where to begin with this blog, we’ve done so much & grown so much over the past 6 months its pretty tricky to even sum it all up. Brennan is a silly, charming yet headstrong little boy who is growing up right before our eyes!

B absolutely LOVES school and his teachers, especially Ms. Amy! “AMY AMY AMY!” Always asking for her to be around. They have been so wonderful, patient and attentive with him – the things he learns and does is so wonderful for his growth and I’m constantly amazed and what he is capable of when they let him. Currently he is enrolled W/F from 9-2 but next year we’ve added a 3rd day since he is thriving so well.
His love for his #1 bunny “bun” has always been there, but now his love for any and all other bunnies and rabbits is seriously adorable. His face lights up whenever he gets a new rabbit friend and they are instantly one of the fam.
B absolutely loves playing outside, and these past few months are the perfect time for that in Houston. Hitting his baseballs, playing chase with Luke, riding the “slide”, popcicles, collecting leaves – he never wants to go back in. Its a blast seeing his little imagination run freely outdoors.

We took our first trip to the zoo on Valentines Day! I thought B would be in heaven since he loves animal so much, but in reality all he wanted to do was run freely and not be in his stroller – so it was a semi disaster. We were able to let him out in the petting zoo and he had a blast there, go figure. Silly kid. [fun with trucks event – The Woodlands]
Unfortunately, the past few months have been tough on us health wise. B had about 5 ear infections in the matter of 4 months. Each round of antibiotics never fully worked and the infection slowly came back. The antibiotics are the horrible party to, not just giving them to him but how bad they mess up his tummy and the diaper rash that follows is so painful! We started talking to our pedi about tubes but luckily this last infection cleared and we have been fine ever since. If we do start to get them again, tubes are in our near future. Its awful to see him so uncomfortable and in pain – so nice to have my baby back to his normal self again!

We had a wonderful Easter, B’s favorite holiday! Started the morning off making bunny pancakes, got 3 Easter baskets from mommy & daddy, auntie tete, and Ma & Papa, and had a delicious Easter dinner over at their house! B had way too many sweets and bunny overload and crashed for a successful nights sleep.
