The answer to the question everyone has had on their minds.....

Maddox is walking!!!
He had been taking a few steps but on Friday he just decided to take more! Now he loves to try to walk to things. He is still wobbly and falls a alot, but he gets right back up and tries again.
We have been waiting to post anything about it until we got some good video of it.

That is the biggest news around here. We have been really busy with a lot of different things. Jamie is finishing up a website for her purses. She has gotten a lot of orders for them so she decided a website was in order. It is almost done and we will post the address as soon as it is up and running. Until then, you can visit to check out her blog. She has also still been making purses and keeping up with Maddox, so her days are pretty busy.

Maddox is still doing great. We are thankful we have not dealt with any sicknesses in a long time! He still has only 2 bottom teeth, the top gums are swollen but they have been for over a month now with no signs of teeth. This whole tooth process is taking a lot longer than we thought.
He loves to climb. He keeps working on how to get onto the couch. If there is something next to the couch he will try to use it to climb up. In this picture he has climbed on top of two things stacked to reach the window sill....we definitely have to keep a close eye on him!

We have had a breakthrough in regards to eating. We have figured out how to get our picky eater to eat foods.....let him eat out of small bowls. Maddox would only eat a handful of foods, never wanted to try anything, and would refuse anything he didn't think looked right, now we put things in a little bowl and put them on his tray and he tries it! It may seem like a little thing, but it makes a world of difference for us.
His new word he can say is bubble. He must like the way it sounds coming out because he says it a lot! He can also use sign language to tell us when he wants to eat, when he wants more of something, and when he is all done. The eat one has been especially helpful in knowing when he is hungry and how to express it. Babies can use sign language to communicate before they can talk, so sign language is a great way for him to communicate to us without frustration.

Jamie has entered Maddox into an Evenflo baby contest. The winner is based on how many votes they get. Voting starts June 1st (tomorrow) you can vote once a day until June 15. Please click here and vote for Maddox!! Please pass it on to all your friends too! You can also access it by going to click on the Baby You're a star and then enter photo ID # 12075 in the top right hand of the screen where it asks for Photo ID #. We think he is the cutest baby on there!!

We hope everyone is having a great week and has had a great month of May! This summer sure is going by fast so far!

That's all for now!
