Can You Keep Up....

With all these blog posts???!!
We have been pretty good about posting lately especially considering we have 2 little boys taking up a lot of our time these days.
Hopefully we can keep up the regular posts and pictures since we know this is the only way some people get to see these adorable boys.

Maddox decided the picture needed to be only of him.....

Life at our house has been going pretty well. We are all adjusting well to having Harris around. Maddox is a great big brother and has recently been quite fascinated with Harris. His new things are changing diapers so he can see poo poos and taking Harris' clothes off. We also have to keep a watchful eye on Maddox to make sure he doesn't try to pick Harris up, since apparently that is a fun thing too.

Maddox will be 2 tomorrow!! Wow 2 years! He is such a blessing and such a 2 year old! He loves to be outside and would probably live out there if we let him....naked of course since being naked is another favorite past time of his. He talks constantly and repeats everything we say. He can throw a really good fit when he doesn't get his way. The fits are always fun when walking through a crowded store! Let's see what else?? He loves his Daddy and talks about him all day, Daddy is the first thing he asks about when he gets up from his nap. He likes taking care of his baby Harris and making sure baby Harris always has a clean diaper. We could go on and on about all the fun things he does. Two is such a fun age! We have a birthday party planned for this weekend so stay tuned for pictures from that.
He fell asleep reading before a nap...

Harris has been doing great! He'll be 3 weeks old tomorrow. He eats every 3 hours sleeps in between and is content as can be when he is awake. Everyone loves to tell us how much he looks like Maddox and how blonde his hair is! He sleeps as well as babies sleep at night. He is definitely not sleeping through the night...but most babies don't at 3 weeks.

Harris got his first bath this last week. We have learned that there are quite a few things you don't do quite as eagerly if at all with the second baby, a bath is one of these things. A newborn just isn't that dirty, a two year old on the other hand, is a whole other story. Harris did great in the tub and was just as content as can be.

Things are pretty much back to normal around here. Jamie is feeling great and has been since she had Harris. She takes the boys out on all the normal "outings" her and Maddox had before Harris. Getting around with two is not as hard as getting two out of the house. The boys both sleep at the same time during the day so Jamie has a great break for about 2 hours. That gives her time to relax and do some things around the house.

So that's life at our house......check back for more updates!

2 cute boys

Wow! We have been blessed! We have 2 wonderful and super cute little boys! We thought we would share some pictures with you.

Everything at home has been going great. Maddox loves his baby Harris and likes to check on him a lot. He is very gentle and loving with him and really doesn't notice he is around until Harris cries. Maddox likes to do a great imitation of Harris' cry too. Harris is a pretty laid back little guy. He likes to sleep and eat and hardly ever cries. He is doing great at night too.

We think Maddox and Harris look a lot alike so we thought we would post these pictures to see what you think. Can you tell which one is Maddox and which one is Harris??!!

Isn't that crazy??!! They definitely have some differences but in some pictures we take you can hardy tell them apart.
By the way the picture on top is Harris and the one below is Maddox. :)

We hope everyone is having a great week! Keep checking back for more updates!

Bad About Pictures....

So, lately we have been really bad about taking pictures. Neither of us are very camera happy people, and we were doing really well, but we have slacked off a lot lately. Sadly, that means that all of our blog readers don't get to view the super cuteness that is Maddox quite as much. Fortunately new baby will be here soon...sooner than most expect in fact ;) and there will be lots of new pictures to take and show off. So do not fear, more cuteness is on its way!

We have been up to a lot since the last post. We went down to Jamie's parent's house Easter weekend and had a wonderful crawfish boil!! We also had a great time visiting with family. Mimi and PawPaw heated their pool for us all to swim in and of course Maddox instantly turned into a fish. That little boy sure does love to swim...he probably gets that from his Uncle E. He also taught himself how to hold his breath under water. We are very impressed by his swimming skills and lack of fear of the water. Of course, forgot our camera that weekend otherwise there would be pictures to post. Easter Sunday we headed back home to celebrate with Brian's family. Maddox had a great time hunting eggs and was eggstatic about all the candy! We were the horrible parents that took all the candy out of the eggs before Maddox could get to it. He gets a little obsessed about candy so we try to stay away from it as much as we can. After an eggsausting weekend we were glad to get home and rest.

We are all getting anxious about new baby. Now we are trying to tell/explain to Maddox that the baby that lives in mommy's tummy is going to come out soon. So now he lifts up Jamie's shirt and says "baby come out.....". If you ask him if it's a baby boy or a baby girl he consistently says "baby girl," it will be very interesting to see if he is right. Jamie is nesting like crazy. Everyday Brian comes home to a new cabinet cleaned out, carpets cleaned, a purse made...etc etc etc. She never really did this when pregnant with Maddox.
This is a picture of new baby's crib. The bedding turned out great!

We have spent a lot of time enjoying the 2 weeks that is spring before summer comes with full force! Maddox loves to play in the "backard" and our back door is open most of the day as he wonders in and out of the house. He brings in bugs and "capilups" (caterpillars) and plays in the dirt, mud, sand and loves to run around without clothes on. Everything that boys are supposed to do right?
Maddox's vocabulary just keeps expanding and he is very good at telling you exactly what he wants. His new favorite phrase is "I love (fill in the blank)" sometimes it's coke, or candy, tools, bikes, church, backyard, or ketchup. It is very cute when he says it. He makes us laugh so much and is such a joy and a blessing to be around.

Well we hope you enjoy the few pictures and the update. Maybe in our next update there will be a new little Volentine to introduce.
