Our trip to Wal-mart...

I wanted to make sure I blogged about this so I can remember....


I have taken Brody to Wal-mart numerous times by myself, but usually it is just to get a few things and I know that I can be in and out within like 5-10 minutes. Well today I had to go, it was a must we were out of diapers and Brody was wearing a sz 4t pull-up my sister had gave me once upon a time that were leftover from my nephew's ( Thank you Tisha). We had been to church this morning, then Timmy watched Brody while I went to my friend Kendra's baby shower and once I got home I knew I needed to go. Timmy wanted to stay and watch football so off  Brody and I went. I said a prayer on the way that Brody would be well-behaved and want to ride in the car the whole time, and thank God My prayers were answered. Normally when we go to walmart it is a family outing and Timmy takes Brody and lets him run around looking at everything while I shop and then we meet at the check-out line. We were in Wal-mart for probably 45 minutes and Brody was an absolute angel. He rode in the cart the whole time checking everything out, he didn't even try getting out of the cart, not even when I took him to see the fish ( his favorite). As we walked out I was thinking to myself... Wow this was the calmest and easiest trip to Wal-mart I have had (when by myself with Brody) since he was born and he is 2 years old!! Guess he really is becoming a big boy!!!!!


Like I said I went to my friend Kendra's baby shower today. She has 2 beautiful little girls and they are welcoming a sweet baby boy in about 4 weeks!!!!


I have been working on Brody's big boy room since the beginning of the year, we took out his baby furniture and sold it ( yes this made me sad, even if he never slept in it.) and got him a big boy bedroom suite. I just got the bedding in on Thursday and I need to find some curtains and it is finished and it has turned out so cute! He loves playing in his room and on his big boy bed! He took a nap on it for the first time this evening! Then this Momma had to go scoop him out and snuggle with him!

I'm so not looking forward to the grocery trips when my little guy is old enough to get into everything. Glad Brody behaved for you!
And your friend is such a pretty Mommy to be.
Can't wait to see pics of Brody's big boy room :)

How nice that he was so well behaved at walmart. I think its every parents fear that their child will freak out or be horrible at a store. I know I worry the same. Julian and I always take Cooper together as well. It makes me nervous to go without him. :)

Good job Brody.

Also I can't hardly believe he's in a big boy bed. Wow. He's really growing up.
