Ella and Branyan have a great relationship. He just loves her to death and his always rubbing his face into her fur. She treats me like he's her puppy and licks him and watches over him. It's so cute.

B loves to play in the dishwasher while I'm loading or unloading it. But this day he decided to climb on top of it. I had to get a quick picture before I got him down.

Look. I'm walking now. Branyan took his first steps the day he turned 9 months old. It was all over from there.

Well I posted these pictures I got a little messed up and posted the newest ones first. As the above picture shows Branyan is now pulling himself up on just about everything and standing - quite often with just one hand. As you scroll down you will see that he has master crawling as well.
He just love the vacuum. The other day I was vacuuming the living room and he was chasing it around. I was pretty much in hysterics.

In his Johnny Jump-up.It is so cute to watch him jump. He loves it. He will stay in there for as long as 45 minutes sometimes.
Branyan is also learning to drink from a sippy now. He still gets most of his nutrients from nursing, but he has fun with the cup.
Now that Branyan is able to sit up it was time to graduate to a new bath rub. He loves bath time and has so much playing with his toys.
Branyan is now eating solid foods (well baby food anyway) and sitting his high chair at meal time. He looks so little in the high chair. :)

Branyan is now crawling. In fact he's been crawling for about a month now, since he was 6 months old. He is everywhere and gotten so fast. It's scary because he is so quiet and he will crawl up to right behind me while I'm in the kitchen facing the counter or something and don't know he's there until I go to take a step back and almost trip over him.

Branyan is now rolling over both ways and rolling across the floor. He is also up on all fours and rocking back and forth - so close to crawling. His back legs know what to do but his front arms haven't figured their part out yet. He is also basically sitting up on his own now. He will still fall over to one side or the other after a few minutes but is getting stronger and stronger every day. He is just such an amazing little boy. Neither David or I can get enough of him. He is so much fun. He laughs and giggles all the time, is always smiling and "talking". He hardly ever cries, only when something is really wrong. He is very laid back and seems to content.

Branyan was fantastic at the Mariner home opener on April 12th. He hardly cried at all and just took it all in. He had no problem with any of the loud noises either.
Someone is so excited to be at the Mariner's home opener.
And so sits the future Mariner MVP along with his parents.

Branyan has now found his feet. They are constantly in his mouth.

About the second week of April Branyan started one the 1st stage of baby food. Here he is trying prunes for the very first time. So far we have tried applesauce, sweet potato's, prunes and banana's.

Someone is getting sleepy...
Branyan is getting stronger and stronger and becoming closer to be able to sit up in his own. He is also a little boy that really wants to be on the move. He is still only rolling over one way (from his front to back) but he is getting so close to rolling the other way as well. He also has started scooting himself around in circles. I know its only short matter of time before he is scooting himself forward. He gets himself up on all fours and will rock back and forth. This boy wants to move. (Not sure how excited I am about that.)
