Brayden's 1st Bath

Brayden finally lost his cord on the day he turned one month!  He absolutely loved his bath and was pretty upset when we took him out.  Here are a couple pictures proving it!

Chillin', loving the bath

I think we broke his heart!

1 Month Old!

I can't believe my little man is already 1 month old!  Time has gone by so quickly...  I definitely have been able to see the little changes in him since his debut.  ;)  He's definitely grown a lot.  Much longer and definitely heavier (both great things!). I love all of his facial expressions and how he smiles randomly when he sleeps.  But I've noticed that he is especially smiley right after he eats and has just drifted off to sleep.  I love it, love it!  He also makes the cutest face when he cries.  He pokes his bottom lip out and actually says "waaa".  It's the saddest yet cutest thing in the world!  I love being a mommy, and it's definitely getting easier.  Those first few weeks were rough!  Anyway, here are some pictures from Brayden's first month of his life!

Brayden's 1st Car Ride

So Brayden's first car ride was a bit nerve racking for me.  For starters, you know I'm accident prone.  So putting my own child in car on the road with all of the crazy drivers there are in Baton Rouge just makes me nervous.  But on top of that, it was raining that day. 

Crazy Drivers + Rain = Almost 2 Collisions!

We had barely made it out of Woman's Hospital onto Airline when a guy (I say a guy because we all know woman drivers are better than men ;) didn't check his blind spot and came over into our lane on top of us!  I about had a heart attack.  Thank heavens Brandon has quick reflexes!  Then on the interstate, the guy behind us wasn't paying real close attention and almost hit us when traffic came to a stop.  Whew!  Luckily we were able to make it home in one piece!  And Brayden looked extra cute that day.  ;)

He was born scowling.  Lol...  Hopefully not an omen of what's to come!

Just love those cheeks!!  :)

Brayden Has Arrived

Brayden Joseph Tingle has finally arrived!  He decided to give his daddy the ultimate Father's Day gift and came on June 19, 2011.  I'm a little late on the blog post, but better late than never!  :)  He was born at 7:07pm and weighed a whopping 8lbs 13oz and was 21.5 inches long.  Don't ask me how he fit in my tummy b/c I really don't know...  Well, I do know... I was massive!  Anyway, we love our new little man in the family and feel so blessed to have him!

On the way to the hospital!

Isn't he precious?!

One of the first looks at the world!  :)

We didn't do so well coordinating which camera to look at...
