Now to be a little more current (this news not quite 2 weeks old yet), here is Elissa’s post with an update and 5 month old Brody pictures.

Hope you are all doing well. Our little Brodwin turned 5 months old yesterday, and this last month was full of adventures and lots of firsts:

First (and second) time flying on a plane, and first time out of the country! We went down to Houston for 2 weeks to visit the Huber family. He did very well flying, on the way we were allowed to take our carseat on, as they had an empty seat beside us, then on the way back we held him, as it was a full flight. He had a few fussy moments, but he didn’t seem too bothered by the altitude changes, or the turbulence at times, and was able to nap for short times on my lap.

First time swimming in a pool (or floating anyway). We enjoyed the Huber’s pool a number of times, and Brody got used to the water pretty quickly, he seemed to enjoy playing/screeching at their giant pool noodles and watching the other kids swim.

First time to the Calgary zoo- Mom took him, with another friend and her baby. He slept for a good part of it, but was able to see the penguins and some scenery from his stroller view.

There were a number of other first experiences… I likely wont be able to name them all, but they would include his first time riding his swing on the highest setting, and first time at a boardwalk amusement park, where he rode on a train on Dad’s lap. (see pictures below)

Brody continues to be cheerful and curious, and is now adept at putting his feet in his mouth, and rolling from his tummy to his back. We are excited for many more adventures as soon we will start trying out soft/pureed foods.

Enjoy the pictures,

Love Layne, Elissa & Brody

It has been a busy week at the Huber household.  Layne and Elissa and Brody flew in on Tuesday to spend a couple of weeks with us (so expect a lot of Brody pictures).

The birds appear to be eating the blackberries way before they get even remotely close to ripe. I managed to find this one hidden under a leaf. It’s probably time for some netting.

Bilbo 2.0

On Friday, Bilbo had a grooming session.

There will not be any further pictures of Bilbo, as we returned him to the Poodle Rescue Society. He was becoming increasingly stressed and abruptly antagonistic to people who startled or crossed him. We are hoping that there is a better home for him out there. Or, in HR speak, “We wish him well in his future endeavors.”  


Back to Brody

Brody 3 month pictures date back to an email from Elissa on March 27th.  I’ve scaled the size of these pictures back to speed up page loading; but if you want a larger copy to print, let me know (or Layne and Elisssa) and we’ll see what we can do.  My favorite picture here has to be the owl hat, although the bowtie shirt runs a close second.

Wishing you all a Happy Easter day!
Thought a few Brody pictures were needed to send out again… He just turned 3 months old yesterday. Last week, while he was lying on a blanket on the living room floor, he pushed himself with his arms, and with some effort, then pushed himself over his left side onto his back. It was pretty exciting to witness (I, mom was there). We learned he is also ticklish, so it is fun trying to make him laugh and squeal with delight at times. It is crazy how fast he is growing, he is now about 13.5lbs, and wearing 3-6mo clothing.

We are super thankful this Easter, hope you all celebrated well.
Blessings,
Layne, Elissa & Brody
