Quick Post

This is just a quick post with a few pictures.
We are headed to Houston this weekend for Jamie's Dad's 50th birthday!

This will be the second time this month that Jamie and the boys have traveled to Houston. About two weeks ago Jamie went to say goodbye to a very special person, Liz. Liz was Jamie's long time babysitter and basically a member of the family. She lost a very courageous battle with cancer on Monday June 9th. Thankfully Jamie got to have a very nice visit with her before she passed. The service is tomorrow so we will be attending that while we are there.

The boys are doing great! Maddox is in swimming lessons right now, more on that next post. Harris went for his 2 month check up yesterday. He weighs 10lbs 11oz and is 22 1/4 inches long.

Here are a few pictures to hold you over until the next post

Time for an Update

Summer is definitely is so HOT!! To beat the heat lately we have been playing in the water a lot. And last night we decided we needed a bigger kiddie pool so that we could join Maddox in it! Our backyard now looks like a kids playland or something!

On Memorial day weekend we decided to take the boys on a little hike so we drove over to Driskill Mountian, highest point in Louisiana! They both had a good time, Harris slept and Maddox had fun picking dewberries along the path. We captures a few pictures along the hike.

The boys are doing great! We all finally feel settled in since having Harris and feel like we have a good routine down. Maddox has become accustomed to having Harris around and the days are going a whole lot smoother.

Maddox is getting so big! He is such a little boy now and he sure is ALL boy too! He has such a fun personality and makes us laugh all the time. He is putting lots of sentences together and repeats a lot of what he hears, which can be very funny especially when he uses it in the right context. He heard Jamie say the word weird the other day so now he says when things are weird!

He loves to help "make" in the kitchen. This means he feels the need to help with every meal breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack!
He no longer says his name "Makeek" it has now turned into "Maddock." So everything is now "No, Maddock do it." Everything is always all about them when they are two! Gotta love that egocentricity!
We signed him up for swimming lessons next week. He is such a fish that we decided some formal instruction would be good for all of us. He has no fear of the water which can be a good and bad thing.

Harris is doing great too! He is so cute and such a sweet little guy. He is very content and happy all day long. This is new for us since Maddox was a little( insert sarcasm) high needs.

Last time we went to the doctor (last week) Harris weighed 8lbs 12oz. He is definitely eating well, gaining over a pound a week!
This week he has been going to Vacation Bible School with Jamie and just peacefully hanging out with her, like we said he is a very content baby.
He smiles a lot now and has started cooing at us when we talk to him. Last night he slept for 7 hours!! That was a first and may be a last but we sure did enjoy it!

The blueberry farm is now open so stay tuned for pictures of blueberry picking!
