More Crystal Beach and a Camping Trip

We decided to post some more pictures we took from our Crystal Beach vacation. Maddox has been talking about the beach ever since we got back. Good thing we are taking a beach trip this summer!

Last weekend we took Maddox camping! He of course loved it and loved being outside with boys. We went with another couple and 2 other guys. It was pretty chilly outside especially at night but Maddox was a trooper. He really liked just sitting by the fire at night and roasting marshmallows. It was a great experience and we plan on going again this summer.

The little monster has been very active and talkative lately. He entertains anyone who will look at him wherever we go. He is very much a people person. His vocabulary has been growing everyday. We are surprised and amused by the things that come out of this boys mouth. He also talks non stop during the day and has a habit of narrating his whole day, even if no one is listening. He has also taken to singing. He makes up songs throughout the day, some are very interesting. He definitely keeps us entertained.

The weather has been nice so we have spent a lot of time outside playing with sticks and dirt. We have also been spending some time working on potty training. We introduced the potty a long time ago and have experienced a lot of success in the past few weeks. Of course Maddox chooses which days he will use his potty and which days he wants nothing to do with it....but that's a start right?? Hopefully as the weeks go on this will improve and one day in the near future we will only have one baby in diapers.

The countdown for new baby has begun! We have about 7 weeks until we get to meet this little one. We have a date for the c-section scheduled and will plan on having a baby that day unless Jamie goes into labor earlier. Everything is going great with the baby. We had hoped to put some ultrasound pictures up but our scanner is broken so that wont be happening. Baby is growing fine and everything looks normal. Jamie is enjoying buying some new pink and blue things for this baby and getting new baby and Maddox's room together. We'll post pictures of their room as soon as it is all finished.

That's all for now!

The Adventures of Ma-keek

Maddox has started calling himself Ma-keek. If you ask him what his name is this is what he says. It sounds really cute. He has also started saying things like Ma-keek walk, Ma-keek down, Ma-keek coming. Everything he wants to do himself he uses his name with. We have been really impressed with his verbal development lately, especially when he strings words together like "daddy home" or "love you daddy" or "daddy come." Maddox definitely has a thing for his daddy. He likes to talk about him all day and cries when he leaves for work in the morning. One other really cute thing he has started doing is calling out "hey baaabe" when he wants Brian for something. Jamie does this and apparently Maddox has picked up on it. It makes us all laugh!

Jamie and Maddox made a King Cake the other day for Mardi Gras. Maddox got to help decorate and eat it. These pictures were taken after the mess was cleaned up. Icing and sugar were everywhere including on the dogs. The only breathing thing in the house that was not covered in icing was Lizard. Maddox had a great time with the cake, he loves to help "make" things.

Maddox got to go to the beach for the first time this last weekend!! We celebrated Jamie's PawPaw's 80th birthday with the whole family at Crystal Beach. We all had a great time. We'll post more pictures of the event in another post but for now here are some of the pictures of Maddox's beach experience.

We have been taking lots of pictures lately and we have lots to blog about so we promise more blog posts are on the way. We know there are a few people who have been anxiously awaiting a new post so we figured we would go ahead and get this one up.
But stay tuned for more Crystal Beach weekend pictures, Valentines pictures, and new baby ultrasound pictures!

Love you all!!
