It's Begining to Look Alot Like Christmas

I can't believe that it's almost Christmas!! I'm getting so excited about this being Brayden's first Christmas and Santa coming to see him. Brayden tries his best to get the decorations off the there is NOTHING on the very bottem. He can reach the ribbon that goes around the tree and he pulls it off...which is what he's doing at this very moment. He is becoming one WILD little boy and keeps his mommy and daddy on their toes constantly. Brayden is now pulling up on everything and I do mean everything!!!
Tad recently went to the Snowball Derby in Pensacola and he seemed to of had a wonderful time. He loves to go watch short track racing. He was gone from Wednesday to Sunday! Brayden and I did miss him alot. We were super glad to see him Sunday night when he got home :)
I registered for Troy Monday and I start in January! I'm getting really excited and I can't wait to start! I will be done with LBW Monday. I do plan on going back to LBW in the summer though to finish some of my basic classes that I still need to take. Well Brayden is now wanting some breakfast so I better go get him something to eat..but here are a few pictures
Have a blessed Holiday Season!!!

Halloween Is Over :(

This is Brayden's First Halloween and He was the cutest Baby Giraffe if I do say soo myself. I enjoyed seeing him in his costume and showing him off. We didn't go trick or treating this year, but we will definetly be going next year! I'm sure that he will enjoy it more next year too.

Mommy and Brayden...The Witch and the Baby Giraffe

I hope that everyone had a fabulous Halloween! We had a great day together as a family. We went to Opp Fest yesterday morning with Aunt Sam and Oki Grace..I think Aunt Sam enjoyed pushing Brayden around in his stroller! I held Oki's hand...let me tell you thats a heck of a job! She walked looking back the whole time and ran into to me several times, but I enjoyed spending time with them. We don't get to do that much anymore!

Troy University Here I Come!

I have recently been accepted to Troy and I'm super excited about it. I plan to start in January of 2010. I know that I'm going to have some long days and be away from Brayden more than I have since he has been born... It will take awhile to adjust but I know that I'm making a better life for our family. Tad had a birthday on the 7 and he claims that he is only 21 but lets just add 5 to that...haha :) Nice try Tad! I enjoyed having last week off from Dance I needed a break and some time to spend with my little man. I miss him soo much while I'm at school and Dance. I feel like I never get to see him hardly. Here are a few pictures from the past week of my sweet baby boy...

My Baby Boy feel asleep on the way home from running some errands in Andalusia and slept about 30 minutes after we got home...I would not dare to take him out of his carseat and wake his precious self up...
I took this picture of Brayden the other day while we were sitting in the car waiting on Mother and Daddy to get back from test driving an Accord. We had to find something to entertain him while we were waiting! :)

I love this "FALL" weather!

The weather outside the past couple of days have been GREAT! I love that its not burning up anymore..or atleast for a little while. The weather is always changing around here. We ordered Brayden's Halloween costume this past weekend. I can't wait for it too get here!! We are also having a Halloween party and Im super excited about it!I think its going to be soo much fun! Last night Tad was getting Brayden ready for bed and Tad had Brayden laughing and giggling..It was soo cute! I love Brayden's laugh.
He has now really started to fight his sleep. It's a heck of a job to get him to sleep sometimes...most of the time you just have to let him throw his fit and then try to get him to lay down and sleep. His first tooth has cut the skin! I cannot believe he is getting his first tooth soo soon! He's getting to big for his britches already!
Here are a few pictures from the past week.
My Little Man and Mommy playing around with the camera!

Daddy and Brayden were having a funny conversation laying in the floor! Brayden is drinking his juice! He Loves it! :)

Brayden has started sitting up some on his own. I still put something behind him though cause he still has the tendency to fall backwards.

A New Beginning

I took this picture this morning after he woke me up by talking to himself...I sat him in the bed with me and he played with a Billy Bob(a teddy bear). I just thought it was too cute.
I guess he didn't like it anymore the other way so he just turned it upside down...and then couldn't get out of it!

I have come to realize that family is everything and nothing could ever replace my wonderful family and what they do for Brayden and I. I love all of my family soo much and I honestly do not know what I would do without them in our life. They support me with every decision I make as long as its a good one*haha*. I feel honored everyday to have such a healthy and precious little boy whoe makes me smile all the time no matter what kind of day I seem to be having. My main focus now is working on finishing school, taking care of Brayden and making a much better life for the both of us. Of course I couldn't do any of this without the help from my gracious Mother and Daddy!

He wanted to help Izzy with her laundry by sittng in the clothes basket....

This is what Brayden does while Mommy gets a shower and gets ready for school on Tuesday and Thursday morning...I thought that this was so precious of him sleeping holding his blanket.

Brayden decided that he wanted everyone to see his six pack abs...

School has Begun!

Izzy came home one night with this new toy for Brayden! I love the expression on his face! He does love playing in it!
Mommy and Brayden after Tad's cousin Ashley's baby shower about 2 weeks ago.

This is Brayden's first time eating Baby food! He is doing to good with it and loves his veggies and fruits. But doesn't seem to want his milk anymore..So I've been fighting with him about this a little bit. haha

This is Brayden's very first 100 dollar bill that his great-great-grandfather gave him.

I have officially started back to school at LBW. I enjoy both of my classes this term and the teachers! I have had both of the teachers once before. Brayden is growing like a WEED! I can't believe he is almost 5 months old. I see all these pregnant people, and sometimes I wish I were them, but then I realize how bad I hated being fat and tired all the time and I'm glad that Brayden is Here! :)

Brayden is learning soo much now that it's hard to believe that he can do all these things. He puts EVERYTIHNG in his mouth no matter what it is. The other day he had his little zebra (stuffed animal) in his mouth, and when I went to pick him up he had fuzz all in his mouth! It was hilarious! I hate having to go to school and leave him..I still haven't gotten use too it yet. I only go for an hour and half on tuesday's/thursdays and two hrs on tuesday nights. I'm sure it will get easier for me though. I just love spending time with him and don't want to miss anything that he does. I love being his mommy and wouldn't trade it for anything in this world.

Brayden is 4 Months!

Eli and Brayden on the beach..Don't you just love Brayden's expression...

We recently took a vaction to Destin for a week and had soo much fun. We all enjoyed getting away for a while. Tad and my daddy are the only ones that didn't get to go..They had to work!We did miss them though. Each time we took Brayden down to the beach, he went to sleep...I guess that hot sun just wore him out! I still can't believe how fast he is growing up. I wish he was still a newborn sometimes...haha..I love the sleep! I start back to school in about 2 weeks and I'm not ready to leave Brayden yet. He will still not be attending daycare yet. I have a wonderful family that is going to help me out while I'm in class! I will definetly have pictures of Brayden in my notebooks so I can look at him while Im at school. Oh, I have changed my major also! That whole Business degree was just tooo much for me..I didnt enjoy it at all. Brayden has also began to roll over! It's soo funny to watch him too..He can roll front-back and back-front!He's getting so big so fast!

My Sweet Precious Family

Here are some pictures from the past week I just wanted to share! Enjoy!! This was before going to Andalusia for lunch with Izzy(my mom) one day.
We tried cereal for the first time by a spoon the other day and I think more of it ended up on his bib than in his tummy! It was soo funny watching his faces while we were feeding him.

Papa T and Brayden dressed alike and didn't even plan too! They were so cute though I just had to get a picture!

Landon Parker and Brayden Pierce are going to be such great friends one day like their mommy's are now! Landon is 3 months older than Brayden and Landon's mommy Nina is 3 months older than I am also! It's soo cool how things work out sometimes.

Brayden laying in his crib laughing and cooing at his monkey's. He absolutley loves his mobile and could lay there all day and talk to the monkey's on it.

Daddy and Brayden one night before Brayden's Bath Time. Brayden loves his daddy!

Happy 4th!

We celebrated with the family yesterday since my daddy had to go back to work this morning. We grilled hamburger, hot dogs, sausage dogs, and had plenty of other food too. It was hot outside with a very nice breeze going while we were all outside grilling and playing in the pool. I think that everybody had a great time. Brayden got in the pool a little bit but just couldn't seem to hold his eyes open very long. Bless his heart he was WORN OUT! So, we brought his swing outside and he went to sleep in his swing in the shade with his daddy and Papa T. Eli, Max, Aunt Sam, and I like to throw rings and coins in the deep end and go get them and see how many we each get. We all did really good at times(when we weren't out of breath) Eli and I would go for the same coins alot of the times and would push each other out of the way. Oki just wanted everybody to watch her jump off the ironing board(diving board) with and without her floatey's on. Trevor has gotten soo good at swimming in just a couple of weeks! I can't believe how good he has gotten. Later that night, We all get out but the kids are all still in and Tad decides to get in with them and not us! Tad and the boys take turns jumping off the diving board, and Tad throwing Oki in the water. I love watching Max dive and Eli do flips! I'm to scared to do either of them. During all of this Brayden is still sleeping most of the time. He was such a good baby for us yesteday so that we could swim. He will be 3 months Monday!I can't believe it. We are also having his 3 month pictures done Monday and some pictures of Tad and me too. I just hope that Brayden smiles pretty and is happy for us. This past week he has decided that he is just not going to nap during the day at all. Maybe 4 or 5 minutes at a time about 3 times a day! Then at night time he is screaming his head off cause he's soo tired and still doesn't want to go to sleep. I just give him a bath then he knows that its bed time then. Well I don't have my camera card with me at the moment so I don't have any new pictures to post, but I will soon! Have a safe and Happy 4th of July!

Staying at home with Brayden!

Aunt Sam got a new toy (camera) for her anniversary and took some great pictures of little man!
Brayden is 10 weeks old today and it just makes me want to cry! He has started laughing, smiling and cooing at us now. It is too sweet...He is too sweet! He had his 2month check -up last Monday and he is healthy as can be and weighs 11.15 lbs and is 22 in. long...Such a Big Boy!

Brayden getting all excited about going Sunday fishing!

The Dance Recital is over and went fantastic I must say. Cari and I had to play records this year and it was very nerve racking. We normally have all the music recorded on tapes, but were unable to this year. Next year we are going to use either CDs or an IPOD.We need to be doing a little bit of updating :) Now I'm focusing on my online courses and of course my sweet little Brayden Man!

Dance Dance Dance

Well Monday starts Dance Recital Week!WOOHOOO....I'm ready to get started and get it over with. Since Mrs. S- hasn't been there, I have alot of stress on me and have so many things to do. Thank goodness the rest of the costumes came in Wednesday! I was soo so worried that they weren't. I'm no going to know what to do being away from Brayden so much next week. I may just have to sneak away for a hour and go home and see him! :)

My Online Classes also started today. I'm not very fond of online courses, but I also didn't want to go to school this summer and leave Brayden. I just don't think he's ready to be away from his mommy and I don't think his mommy is ready to be away from him either. I don't know how I'm going to handle it starting fall when I actually go back to school! It's going to kill me I'm sure.

Brayden is getting so big and it just seems like yesterday I was going to the hospital to be induced! It makes me want to cry sometimes when I look at him and see how much bigger he is. I waited 9 months to have him and now I'm going to be going to his high school graduation before you know it. I don't understand why they have to grow up so fast. I wish Brayden could be 6 lbs 12 ozs forever!

Loving My Little Man

I can't believe that my baby boy is almost 2 months old. This is absolutley crazy, it goes by soo fast. I'm back at dance now and getting back to a routine and so is Brayden. Dance is crazy trying to get ready for recital June 5 and 6. Mrs. Sellars is doing much better and seems to be improving every day!

Brayden is starting to smile a little when we talk to him. I love his smile, it just brightens my day. This past Friday he weighed 10lbs. I couldn't believe it! He has gotten so big already, but bless his heart he's just going to be short. He's only getting up once a night now, which isn't so bad, but I can't wait till he sleeps all night long! :) Brayden has started laughing in his alot and is soo funny to watch him.

Yesterday morning he was sitting in the recliner and I walked in his room to get him an outfit. Well, when I walked back in the living room he was just a laughing and smiling like crazy. It was SOO SWEET! The TV is begining to get his attention now also..He loves the bright colors.

I've decided that cleaning the house is very hard to do! My house stays completely out of order now...and it drives me crazy. I pick up something in the floor...5 minutes later something else is in the floor. We now run out clothes to wear because I just can't seem to find the time to wash. Brayden is also very scared of the noise of the washing maching and dryer. I need a maid very badly to clean my house while Brayden and I are out of the house! I don' see that happening anytime soon though.

Overall I LOVE LOVE LOVE being a mommy to Brayden Pierce! I wouldn't trade it for anything in this world. I'm soo lucky to have such a wonderful baby!

He's Here!

I know that it's been a while since I've posted anything. I've been a litte busy getting everything ready for Brayden's arrival. We went to the hospital Sunday April 5 and started cervadil. That Monday morning the cervadil had no affect on me what so ever. So they started the pitocin drip which worked somewhat and very fast. I got my epideral at 4cm. and didn't go anywhere from there. Dr. Butler decided to do a c-section, and of course I was very upset and scared. My family all calmed me down and let me know that everything was going to be okay. So on April 6, 2009 at 7:43pm little Brayden Pierce Tisdale entered the world at 6lbs 12oz. 18.5in.long. He is the best thing that has ever happened to me and I wouldn't trade motherhood for anything. I don't think I've ever seen a cuter, sweetier baby then him! He sleeps most the night, doesn't fuss alot (only when he's hungry), and overall is such a Good baby! Tad and I are very blessed to have such a healthy baby. Brayden is the first great-grandchild on my mothers side which is neat because I am the first grandchild on my mothers side. Brayden is only 2wks and 3dys old and is already spoiled rotten. He hates to sleep by himself, he thinks that he must be held or in the bed next to Tad and me.

My 1st Baby Shower!

I had my first baby shower this past weekend and it was so much fun! My friends Tiffany Wiggins, Nina Williams, Brandi Gatlin, and Lindsey Hutto were the Hostesses. They had it at the DRS School of Dance which is where Tiffany and I work at. All of us have taken dance except for Nina, but she has attended our recitals for many years. Mrs. Sellars the owner of the studio was put in the hospital a week ago, and I'm praying that she is going to be okay. I got lots of great gifts at the baby shower, now I just have nowhere to put it. I'm sure that I will be able to do something with all the gifts. I actually have another next Sunday afternoon at the Chamber of Commerce and Tad's aunts are hosting it for me. I'm getting super excited about Brayden's arrival and just can't wait to see him. I also went to the doctor yesterday and my doctor put me on bed rest. It's only been one day and I absolutley hate it! I go back next Tuesday so maybe my swellling will be alot better and I won't have to be on bed rest. I still get to go to school and dance though....I'm just not able to do anything else except lay around. Normally, I would love that but I guess when your made too..its just not that fun.

The Tisdale's

Hey Everyone!

I'm Kayla Pierce Tisdale and I'm married to Tad Tisdale. We were married in early September of 2008 and are having a great time together. We are also expecting our first baby boy in April and are super excited and cannot wait until he arrives. Both of us actually picked out the name together which would be Brayden Pierce Tisdale. I don't think that April can get here quick enough for either one us. We are both only children so Brayden will not have any Aunts or Uncles, but we both have friends that will serve as his aunts and uncles. Married life is totally wierd, but we are both still getting used to it. We do enjoy our time together and do love eachother alot! Our families are different from one another but I wouldn't trade any of them for anything. We both are very thankful for them and everything they do for us. Well its time for my daily nap so...
