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.

I loved the polka dot bedding! If you want to paint some dots on the walls I saw a page with some ideas.
