Good Times!

We had friends visit last weekend with their little lady and this pic was snapped. So, so cute!

7 months old

Maddox had a very busy month developmentally. Remember my last monthly post where I said he had pulled up to the stairs but hadn't figured out how to climb yet. Yeah, that lasted about a week. He's been climbing the stairs for a couple of weeks now and it's probably his favorite toy in the house, lol.  So now Maddox is not only climbing stairs but pulling up to everything. As you can see in a picture below not everything withstands his pulling up. He was stuck on that dinosaur for a bit. He hasn't quite figured out that once he has pulled up he has to keep holding on either. So there is some tumbling and crying.

Maddox isn't a huge fan of the exersaucer since it keeps him contained. He wants to be free to roam. He has been like this since he started rolling everywhere he wanted to go. He's great about playing by himself as long as he is free.  He's still doing great with the baby food and even going to town with chunks of squash, banana, carrots and kiwi so far with the self feeder. And he got a very special present on Valentines Day - his first tooth!

Macen is impatiently waiting for him to get big enough to wrestle with. He has taken to grabbing Maddox from behind and laying back on the floor with Maddox on top of him and eventually rolling off. Most of the time Maddox loves it until Macen doesn't want to let him go.

Another month gone by too fast but it has been amazing watching him develop so much these past few weeks.

Happy Valentine's Day!

We are celebrating with lots of kisses, chocolate and heart shaped jello. So thankful to have these amazing boys to share the day with!

Macen's valentines

Macen is handing out these valentines for his school valentine's day party thanks to pinterest. We ended up using candy corn instead of m&m's since his school is a peanut free zone. They are adorable!

Fun with cousins

The boys spent the afternoon with cousins at an indoor bounce house place. Macen was soaked with sweat in no time. There was an area with a small bounce house just for little kids. Maddox spent some time getting bounced around. They both loved it and had a blast!

He's growing up

Macen is getting so big it's hard to believe he was once Maddox's size. He started a pre-k program a couple of weeks ago and he loves it. He goes 3 days a week and eagerly waits for those days to come. He is at that age where he loves to learn so it's an absolute joy listening to him. We can only hope this enthusiasm follows him all the way through school. Speaking of enthusiasm, his daily mantra lately has been "This is gonna be the best day ever". Even when he knows we are doing nothing but running to the grocery store or as much as staying home for the day. I told him that was a great attitude to have. Other daily sayings we get are "This is gonna take forever". It can even be for something as quick as picking up his clothes but if its not something he wants to do right then, he thinks it will take forever. And lastly "Yeah, I know that". He is 4 and he knows everything. Haha!
