This week Jeff and I booked it over to our local bakery-Busy B's. Doesn't that name just sound small town Texas? They have the best desserts I have ever tasted. While leaving we saw a poster that stated that Country Thunder will be coming to the town next to us the last week of May. Coming to sing is my absolutely, positively favorite singer: Tim McGraw. I really like his wife's voice Faith Hill also, but she is not singing at this Country Thunder. Waxahachie really isn't a big town, so I thought that going would be awesome because I might be able to get a descent seat. I rushed to the computer to buy tickets and they range from $150-$500! Well, I guess I am not going. Someday I will go to a Tim McGraw concert...someday. (violin playing a sad song) Don't feel sad for me though because I really can't complain about anything else...I am putting a countdown on the side of my blog reading how many days to go until I get to go to the BEACH! So much fun.

I have been listening to moms talk about how it took FOREVER until their kid finally crawled. Forever to them was 7 or 8 months. I got stressed out when Brody didn't crawl when every other kid his age did...I have to tell you that I got seriously stressed out about it. Jeff gave me an exercise routine I would do with him everyday...strech his legs and arms back and forth, back and forth. We almost called the doctor many times to see if she would do tests on him to make sure evrything was okay. We went to a Whole Foods Store and have been putting strawberry flavored fish oil in his bottles to help with brain development. Well 11 months old Brody is FINALLY CRAWLING. He is seriously booking it with a grin on his face. We are so proud of him. Here is the little speed racer in action (remember it is his first official day of actually getting around):
