Fun in the Sun!

The weather is HOT, so Maddox has been spending a lot of time outside playing in the water. Here are a few pictures.

Harris is doing great. Last week he started smiling and the other day he smiled SO big. It was adorable! The smiles don't come very often, and are hard to catch with a camera, but we promise to post a smile picture as soon as we can. He will be six weeks tomorrow and is oh so cute!

Lots Going On....

This post is going to be a little lengthy. We have done a lot of fun things the past week so we have a lot to blog about!

This past weekend we took Maddox to his first Air Show!! He LOVED it, we knew he would! The boy loves airplanes and helicopters! He also got to see police cars and motorcycles there, more things he loves. It was a rather warm day to be out but we had a great time.

Mother's Day was a really special day. Brian and Maddox cooked Jamie a great breakfast and made her a yummy cake! Then, at church we had Harris dedicated! What a special day! The rest of the afternoon was spent taking naps, something Jamie rarely gets to do! Here are the pictures from the dedication. It was our first time to bring Harris to church, we kept him with us the whole time and he did great!

Yesterday, Jamie Maddox and Harris, went to the zoo with some friends. It was a beautiful day! Maddox really enjoyed seeing all the animals. He was most fascinated with the geese, turtles, and the peacock, go figure! Forget that there were giraffes, a hippo, lions and many more exotics. All the kids had a great time. It was a fun way to get out of the house for a while.

Trying to take this picture was like hearding cats!

Today Maddox and Harris both had checkups. Here are the details:

At 2 years old he weighs 25lbs and is 33in tall. For those wondering, it puts him in the 15th-20th percentile, right where he has always been. He is right on schedule for everything!

At one month old he weighs 7lbs 9oz and is 20.5 inches long! He is in the 25th percentile. He is doing great and the Dr. said everything looks wonderful. We can definitely tell he is getting bigger and becoming more baby-ish and not so newborn.

Happy Birthday Maddox!!

Maddox had a great birthday! He is obviously of the age where he knows the day is all about him.
Friday, after Brian got off of work, we took Maddox to the Fire Station. He LOVES fire trucks! He got to see the fire engines and the ambulance. The firemen were very sweet to show him around and they gave him a special fireman's hat! After we went to the fire station we took him to the toy store to spend some of his birthday money. He picked out some great motorized cars to build (thanks mawmaw and pawpaw!) Brian tried to convince Maddox he needed a marshmallow gun too, but Jamie informed him that the guns were for ages 8 and up. He had a great birthday day!

Saturday we had his birthday party. We had it out at the park and Maddox got to celebrate with lots of his friends. Of course he had a fire truck cake (Jamie made it) that he loved, and he got lots of fun gifts. He was a very tired little boy that afternoon after all the excitement.

Sunday morning he had to get up at 5:30 to play with all of his new toys and he informed us it was still his birthday!

Of course we have to include some pictures of sweet Harris too!
