Sick Baby = No blog post

We have a good reason for not posting in such a long time. Maddox has been sick for a while and is just now showing signs of improvement. It started with a cold, then the cold lasted forever, then he got a stomach bug and still had a cold and nasty cough. So now he is on some high doses of amoxicillin and feeling much better. All this sickness made him feel really bad and he was quite a handful for about 2 weeks! Yesterday and today we are having much better days which is good for all of our sanity.

Since the last post not much has really been going on. We went down to Lafayette to visit with Jamie's family and some friends. Maddox got to hang out with other babies so he really enjoyed it.
We had a great weekend and made it home in time to watch the Saints lose the Championship game. Oh well, you can't say it wasn't somewhat expected....they are the Saints right??
Maddox and Preston playing. Preston is about 5 weeks older than Maddox and about 5 feet taller too. ;)

Other than being sick Maddox has been doing great. He has turned into a little explorer and loves to go exploring around the house. He is very fast so we have to keep a good watch on him. His current favorite place is the bathroom, if we leave the door open he will be in there in a flash. He also really likes the dishwasher and when we feed the dogs. He hears the dog food and stops whatever he is doing to go after the bowls. He says dada and mama, mostly dada unless for some reason he wants Jamie, which never happens ;) then he says mama.
We are enjoying every minute of the stage he is at right now. He is so much fun and keeps us very entertained.

We took him to the eye doctor and the results are good! He does not have a lazy eye. The doctor explained what we are seeing as a very common thing in babies and involves a little extra skin around the eye that he will grow into. The little extra skin is covering up part of the white of the eye which makes it look turned in. He'll go back in a year to check things out again since eye problems run in the family.
Playing with his friend Andi in our new chair!

So we know it has been a while since we posted and you would think we had tons of stuff to write in a blog but a certain little monster is pulling at the keyboard and mouse and playing under the computer desk so we probably should cut this one a little short. All you want to see is pictures anyway right?? ;)

Promise to write some more later when this little munchkin isn't at our heals.
