1 Year

Maddox officially turned 1 year old on Wednesday at 10:17pm. On his birthday we went to the museum with our bff's Darci and Jackson and Jeff met us over there for a little bit on his lunch break. Usually Maddox takes a little bit to warm up, but not that day. He was all over the place, playing with all the toys and he could have cared less where Jeff or I was at. Apparently he was telling us that he is a big boy now, he's one!!

Just a few highlights...

- He's walking a lot more now. Still crawling more, but its starting to get more even.

- He's pointing at things ALL the time. Good thing its not rude to point at people when you're a baby. We ask him questions about where things are, and he always gets Lily right, he most of the time points to Daddy when I ask, he sometimes points to me when Jeff asks where's Mommy and he all the time points to his airplanes, even when we don't ask ;-)

- He loves cake. I would say who doesn't but his Daddy and his Uncle Mark don't like cake (I know, weird huh?)

- He has loved each and every birthday present he's gotten. His wagon from Granny, an Anywhere Chair from Uncle Mark and Aunt Jackie, a dump truck with Mega Blocks from Uncle Chris and a sit and scoot John Deere tractor from (guess who!) Papa Thom! I'll post photos soon!





I'm this many Mom!


That's it! When I'm 18, I'm outta here!!!













That foots a little bigger than a year ago :-)

I had a fantastic Mother's Day! I got a sweet necklace from Maddox, Lily and of course Jeff! And a fun project that Maddox and I can do together, make garden stones for my new garden! After church we came home and I got to take a nap (heaven!) and then we headed to the pool. This was Maddox's first trip to the pool and he loved it. We of course forgot to take a camera...boo. He had so much fun that he didn't want to leave, but he had to take his nap and get ready for his very first trip to Carrabba's! We met Jeff's parents and brother there for Mother's Day dinner. A nice way to end a great day :-) 

Hope your Mother's Day was just a fabulous!

Camera Dump







Apparently I'm a human jungle gym


Let's go!!

An afternoon at the vet is exhausting!

Jungle gym time!




Walking! Walking??

So, Maddox has taken steps and he's becoming more adventurous in actually standing on his own and taking a few steps without Jeff or I enticing him with a dog bone toy.

It took me a while to get some steps on video, but I finally did!
