Me, Bailey and Brayden took a little break from the cold and went to Arizona to spend some time. I was happy to show Brayden off for the first time to my family.  We had so much fun. Bailey was in heaven because she had attention from Grandma, Grandpa, and her uncles everyday. She went swimming in a little pool outside several times, we had a picnic lunch outside, and enjoyed the park a couple times. Brayden was also very spoiled being held or bounced in his little chair almost every second we were there. 

Bailey has a new love for coloring! I love it because it keeps her entertained without me!

We loved being in the sun! You know you live somewhere that the sun doesn't come out enough when your almost 2 year old is outside our first day in Arizona sees her shadow and freaks out! She was so scared and thought her own shadow was going to get her. 

We were happy to have a short visit with Grandma and Grandpa Goodman on our way down. 

Brayden is still a really good baby. He had his 2 month check today weighing 11 lbs. 8oz and is 23 inches long.  I feel very lucky to have him and can't wait to see him grow and play with Bailey. 

It is always fun to go to Arizona and spend time with my mom! Bailey LOVES her grandma and asks for "Ga Ga" almost every day since getting home. We ate lots of good food, shopped, enjoyed going outside, and celebrated my dad's birthday! 

Flying home alone with 2 kids under two was not the funnest thing I have ever done. The flight ended up being 100% full which is what I was scared would happen. I put Brayden in his car seat and Bailey on my lap which worked great until Brayden needed to be fed.  I squeezed Bailey between me and the man sitting next to me and fed Brayden. I really wish a women would have been sitting next to me or that I would have had a bottle. 


  1. Awe the sun! I forgot what that feels like :) That is impressive you flew alone with 2 kids! I don't think I would be so brave. You kids are so cute. Bailey reminds me of Maeva too. They would have a great time coloring together I bet.

  2. wow! brayden is getting big!! today at the ER braxton was 10 pounds 10 oz and 22.5 inches long i believe. he fits perfect in 3 month clothes for length but swims in them. glad you had a ton of fun in AZ. Aaron has always wanted to go down there.

  3. That just made my day...the story about Bailey and her shadow! I love it!
