Poor Justin, Really I do have pictures of him too in the pumpkin patch I have just been to slack to post for some reason. I am not the picture Nazi that I used to be. I mean I try to be on it but when the second baby came into play, I am always preoccupied with changing diapers, or feeding someone. I haven't even taken one picture at a soccer game this season and we only have 3 games left. I promise this Saturday I will be with camera in hand, sorry Brady mommy has work to do.

Pumpkin in the patch!

Look at this "Little Pumpkin"!

This is the cutest little "PUMPKIN" I have ever seen! This was Brady's first trip to the pumpkin patch and it was a fun one. I basically just plopped him in the middle of all these pumpkins. He didn't know what to make of it. It was too cute. He also took his first hayride. Along on his journey was big brother Justin. It amazes me that no matter how many times Justin does the same things over and over he still gets super excited. He has been to the same pumpkin patch and on the same hayride every year since we have been here, and he had as much fun this time as he did the first time. Take a look at the pictures and see all the fun we had.

He has the sweetest face, but don't let him fool you-he has sticky fingers. Anything that he can get his hands on he will. Especially things that he shouldn't touch. He started to crawl about a week ago and this has gotten so much worse. WATCH OUT WORLD HERE I COME!!!
Believe it or not I had to put this little Monkey up in the tree. He wanted to climb this tree but he was afraid to get up there by himself. I put him in the tree and then snapped away. I also had to get him down. He was a little scared to jump, go figure. If there had been a couch around he would of been all about it.

Brady decided on this day that it was more fun to try to eat the grass than it was to play. Needless to say I was able to get a few pictures in between taking the grass out of his mouth. He is a funny boy.

Brady at 8 months

Here is what you need to know about Brady at 8 months
1. He how has 2 teeth that have just broken through, and he loves to have his gums brushed.
2. He is a flirt and a half. He will play shy when you talk to him, but he will wait for you to talk to him again and if you don't he will fuss at you.
3. He says Da Da which I know that he is just babbling but Brandon insists that he knows what he is saying.
4. He has sticky fingers for sure and anything in his reach he is going to grab for.
5. He is still not sleeping through the night.
6. He is still not taking an 8 oz. bottle (which is probally why he is not sleeping through the night).
7. He loves his big brother and loves when he gets home from school. His face lights up.
8. He loves yogurt.
9. He is just starting to get some hair, and it is so soft.
10. He is the light of my life (besides Justin of course).

Justin & Chuckie

I can't believe what a big boy Justin is, 6 years old and I still

remember the first time he went to Chuck E Cheese. It is scary for me to realize that the time is going by so fast and there is nothing I can do to slow it down except try and savor every moment I can of his little life. There was a time in his life that he hated any characters and now he can't wait to see them. He was waiting for Chuckie to come out and you can tell by the smile on his face just how happy he was.

Frankie's Fun Park

On Justin's actual Birthday we had dinner with Riley's family at Chili's and then Brandon and I took Justin and Riley to play mini golf. It was funny to say the least because Riley had never been before. Justin was being a great friend and everytime she asked if she was winning he would say yes even though she clearly was losing. Ut was fun for all of us.

Justin's Birthday Weekend

Justin's Birthday was a jam packed weekend of fun. This collage of photo's was taken on his actual birthday. The first photo is with his Birthday bear which we built at Build A Bear on his first birthday and he only comes out for birthdays. The rest of the pictures are of Justin opening his gifts. After he came home from school we let him open the rest of his birthday gifts. We then went to dinner with our friends at of all places "Chili's". Justin's choice. We enjoyed dinner and a giant cookie cake. Dinner was followed by mini golf at Frankie's Fun Park. The next day was Justin's birthday party at Chuck E Cheese. Check out the rest of the photo's soon to come.

This is his offical big boy pose!

This is the first day of Kindergarten photo. It was a bittersweet day and it was almost hard to believe it came so quick. I had been sick with the stomach flu the whole week before Justin started school and was trying to prepare myself for the big day. When it came Brandon, Brady and I drove him to school. With his back pack in hand he was ready. He had a little crackle in his voice when I said goodbye to him. He wanted to cry but wanted to put on a brave face and he did. He was very brave and I was very proud. I have such a big boy.

Sleeping Angels

This picture was taken in Charleston SC, we spent the weekend there and I put the baby to sleep on the bed where Justin was watching TV and I was doing some homework. This is what I saw when I looked up from my computer. This is too cute for words. I Love You little guys.

Brady is just too cute for words!

I don't know what to say about this little boy. Here are some important facts about him at 7 month.

-He wants to put anything and everything in his mouth.
-He has a great personality and will smile as soon as you say
his name.
-He is also starting to get a bit spoiled and wants me to be in
his sight.
-He is starting to chatter a lot.
-He does not have any teeth yet.
-Is totally sitting up without help, from time to time he will
topple over.

Dick's Last Resort

Dick's Last Resort is a theme restaurant where the servers and staff are allowed to be mean to you on purpose. It was great. I had been there once before right out of high school with some friends and I had told Brandon about it and we wanted to take the kids there for lunch. Thinking about it we shouldn't of clued them in but we did. It was fun. They give you home made hats with different sayings on them and here are some of ours. Take note of who is missing from the pictures. LOL

Just some fun pics of Justin & Jordan!

These pictures were taken at the alligator farm.

The Boys-1

Justin & Brady

Brady does not look too happy in this picture!

Posting Pictures Take 2

OK for some reason I had the hardest time uploading pictures the other day, nothing was happening. I hope that this time I have more luck. This is the cutest picture ever of the boys and Daddy in the ocean. Brady seemed to like it right away. This was the calm before the storm literally. We maybe were out for an hour and almost instantly the rain clouds came in. Justin, Jordan and I were making a giant sea turtle in the sand and Dillon came and said that Brandon wanted to know if he should start to pack up because it was going to rain. Before we could even make it back to our spot it was pouring on us. NOT FUN, especially with a baby and all of his stuff. I also forgot how much I hate taking half the beach home with me. Anyway this is a cute pic before the rain came.

Yankee Fan vs. Boston Fan (I think Justin can take you)

OK so it has been quite a while since I have posted any information about my family, and pictures. I have just been busy with life I guess. I have been taking a step back from the camera and enjoying the moment. Sometimes I get so wrapped up in capturing every moment I miss them. Anyway we spent two great weeks with our boys (all of them). Time goes so fast, because it feels like yesterday that I was preparing for them to arrive. The dynamic in my house has changed and it is still not back to normal. Brandon is the saddest I have ever seen him and my heart breaks for him. Brandon you are a great father, I know that you want to be with the boys on a full time basis and it is very hard for you. I know that not everyone understands why we are here, but it is best for the time being and I think Dillon and Jordan know how much they mean to you and me! Ok I went off on a tangent for a minute and had to reel myself back in but here are some great shots from a GREAT WEEK!!!!!!

Justin, Reily & Ryan
This was a picture taken on the same day as Brady in the pool. He was swimming in Lake Murray and shortly after he came out a big black snake slithered by. Yuck

This picture was taken about 2 weekends ago and it is just too cute. Brady loves the water....I am just so scared to let him get to much sun. Take note of the shirt the hat and the sunglasses. When he hits the 6 month mark the doctor said sunblock will be OK so then he won't have to be fully dressed. LOL

Justin feeding Brady!
Believe it or not this is the first time Justin has really wanted to feed Brady and you can tell that he pays attention. He was talking to him and this picture caught him mid kiss. He does love his brother and I think he is ready for him to be able to play!

Brady Relaxing at the Splash Pad

Saluda Shoals Splash Pad
On Wednesday we decided to check out a new spot at the Saluda Shoals Park. Its a great place for kids and is a minimal cost to get in which we love! It has a splash pad, which is a place to run through tons of different sprinklers and keep cool. The park also has a huge playground, horseback riding, kayaking and picnic area. Hopefully we can check out some of the other things as well.

Cartoon Drawing

While we were at the beach we had someone on the boardwalk draw this cartoon of the boys. He defenitly got the eyes right on both the boys.

This is so Cute

This is just a fun cute picture. I can't wait till Brady is old enough to pose.


This picture is so funny, little ol'Brady in this huge king size bed. This is kind of how I felt with Justin and Brady both in the bed. How can two little guys take up so much space.
Sorry this is not upright, I can't figure out how to flip it.

Beach Bums


Our trip although short was jam packed full of fun. The kids had a great time. I think even little Brady had fun. He loves to be outside where we spent most of our time and he just strolled in his stroller and kicked his little feet. He stayed up until 9:30 on Saturday night and you would never have known he was there.

Justin rode on the big boy rides because he was just big enough to make it. That's right folks he is 42". He rode on the pirate ship and the spinning caterpillar ride. He also built his own remote control car at Ride Makerz. I don't know who really wanted to do it more Justin or Daddy...anyway it was fun for both of them and something they could do together. We did hit the beach for a little while. Brady slept through most of that but Justin splashed like crazy. He wanted to look for shells but once he got in the water he forgot all about that. We also hit the outlets which was more for me than anyone. The kids got some cute clothes though. We ate at Hard Rock Cafe and Senor Frogs which were both tons of fun as well.

All in all fun was had by all. I can't wait to go back with Dillon and Jordan. Justin was making a mental list of all the things he wants to do with his big brothers.

Off To The Beach

I am counting the minutes. We are off to the beach for the weekend and I am so excited. I hope Brady likes it. Stay posted cute pictures to come!

Weather Man Justin!

This was the cutest exhibit at the Children's Museum and Justin got to be a Weather Man for the day. It was so cute you could actually see him on the T.V.
I am so lucky to be able to experience a summer full of adventures with Justin before school starts. I know there are days where I get frustrated because that boy can talk up a storm, but I wouldn't trade it for the world. He is the best kid in the world and I just know he is going to do great in Kindergarten. Until then I am going to enjoy the carefree time I am so privileged to have.


Justin & Reily

Doesn't Justin look like he is enjoying himself.

Seriously I Had Nothing to Do With This!!

One would think that this looks like something that I might do in order to control my oldest son. Well he has actually done this completly on his own. Daddy decided that he would take a picture of this and that I should share it with you all. So enjoy....oh and now that I have the idea it may just happen. Just kidding Ya'll! (You like my country Ya'll huh...)

Look At This Face!

Look At Me...Cute As Can Be!
Lexie is such a good girl...I was hesitant to say the least about getting another dog because I missed both Mia and Beckham. I was afraid that it would be the same thing with Lexie, but she loves Brady. I think it's because she is a puppy and we brought her into the situation after Brady was already here. We have had her for about a week now and she has only had a few accidents. Can you believe it? I think it is because I expected the very worse and getting the very best. Welcome to the Gallihugh Family!

Meet Our New Friend Lexie

OK so we have all been sad since Mia and Beckham got adopted by some friends of ours because they did not seem to get along well with their new little brother. Well Brandon really wanted a new puppy and we were able to adopt an adorable Chocolate Lab. We took her home and wanted to see if she and Brady would be friends and they love each other. Lexie already seems very protective of him even at the young age of eight weeks. When Brady cries she is the first one to check on him. Here are a couple cute pics of the two of them taking a nap by the lake.

Our trip to Edventure Childrens Museum was eventful to say the least. First of all when we got there Justin went inside the GIANT BOY which was a playground that was 3 stories high. I thought I was going to have to take Brady and go in after him. Then we explored the child size grocery store, checked out the giant operation game and explored the fire truck. It was so much fun. A question though....What Genius decided it would be a good idea to put a water area smack dab in the middle of the museum? So Justin decided to play and get soaked even though I told him not to, which led to us leaving early and Justin riding home naked. (Using only Brady's blanket to cover up). Oh and when we got home I sent him upstairs to get clothes and he came down with his swim suit on. It's going to be a long summer...LOL

Tuesday, May 5, 2009

They love to pose for the camera. Justin and Reily have such a brother and sister relationship. They can't wait to play together, but love to fight. Justin will push her down but then rush to get her a bandaid.

Wild Animals

Justin and Brady with all the animals....or should that be the other way around. Anyway they are too cute.

Saturday, May 2, 2009

This is so funny!

Where is Brady?

Justin decided to take all of his Webkinz out today and line them all up, which I have to say was pretty amazing. We had 69 in total. He actually entertained himself with them for a long time, and also entertained Brady as well.

New Do

So I wanted to get my haircut and was unsure exactly what I wanted to do. Well I ended up with something I didn't ask for but....I think I like it. I will update ya'll if I change my mind.

Monster Truck Mania

OK so Justin loves to line things up and count them, he has always loved to do it. While I was doing my homework on Friday before work he was busy working on counting his monster trucks. This kept him quite for a long time....Can you see why?
