Brady is such a smart little boy! This morning as I was straightening up the house, I could hear Brady in his room. When I went in there, he was standing up waiting for me- I love to see him like that! Anywho, I asked him if he wanted out and he said, "yes" So, then he starts climbing on the rails trying to get out, luckily enough there is like an end table with his nightlight and cd player right next to his crib, so when his foot slipped that is what he landed on instead of falling in between the bars. He looks at me and says "oww." I pulled him out of the crib and instead of walking towards the living room, he walks to his books and started reading! I tried to be sneaky, but when the camera clicked he turned around and decided he was done! When Brady is cranky, we will pull out a book and start reading, sometimes he just likes to be by himself and read. My mom has his books on the bottom shelf at her house and when she would ask him to go get a book, he would walk right to them. So, I decided to move his books from one of the top shelves to the very bottom shelf so that he can get them. It is kind of nice when I need to get things done, I will ask him to go read a book and sure enough, he will walk to his room and read!
