Braedon-What I Don't Want To Forget

There are so many things that my kids do that I think I will remember forever but as time goes by some of those memories start to slip. So, I am very glad that I started this blog and will take the advice of my good friend, Jamie, and blog about cute things my kids are doing so I won't forget.
-We have started singing a lot of kids songs. He can't really sing yet but he tries and looks for places to jump in or finish the song. For example, when we sing "Jesus Loves Me", he does the hand motions and says "so" really enthusiastically at the very end of the song when it goes "the bible tells me so".
-We sing "If your happy and you know it" and he will clap, stomp his feet, and say "Amen" at the appropriate times. We then changed the words and sang "If you are Braedon and you know it say "I'm cute" and he says "I'm cute".
-When he knows his picture is being taken he has no problem hamming it up and saying "cheese". He adds this cheese arm thing where he sticks his arm out in front of him like he is rallying someone one and yells "cheese" So, we have some really cute pictures but his arm is sticking up in the air.
-Related to the previous thing...daddy taught him how to say "Rocky, Rocky" and stick his arm in the air like he is cheering him on. (on a side note: every time Rocky is on cable we HAVE to watch it and it is so exciting just like we haven't really seen it 500 times).
-He has grasped the concept that things have several different names. For example, Kaley is sissy, sister, sweet girl, and Kaley. So, he will point to her and say all of those things looking to me for confirmation that they are all correct. Same thing goes for our cat, he points to Jax and says kitty, cat, Jax.
-The way he says "oh no" is really cute like when he knocks over his block tower or drops something.
-He says "I love you" but it comes out more like "I Lolu".
-He loves to love on his baby sister. He will come up to her and give her a hug and kiss and say, "Hi Sissy" and he will hand her toys if they are sitting on the floor together playing.

These are just a few of the many many cute things he is doing that I don't want to forget. I will definitely be writing again and again on this subject since he seems to be doing something new everyday.

Catherine sings a lot of songs too... we will her her in the car just singing random songs we have taught her. Sabrina will try to do the hand movements at the same time. We need to videotape that.
