A bunch of pictures

We have been crazy busy lately! We are buying a new house so the last few weeks we have been busy trying to sell our house (done) and get things together for the new house. Not to mention packing too. We close on both houses on Aug. 6th! We are so very excited! Our house now is getting pretty snug. We found a bigger house with an amazing backyard. The house needs some work, especially on the inside, think 80's wallpaper in every room, but we are all set to get started with some renovations!
The boys have been great! Maddox has been enjoying going to Mothers Day Out. His last day is next Thursday, it has been a great time for everyone and we will be sad when it is over!

Maddox is a blast to be around and we are learning 2 is a very challenging but fun age. We have been having a lot of success with potty training! Hopefully we can have that done and over with very soon! He is very active and always want to be on the go and playing outside.

Harris is great! He is such a happy baby all of the time. He'll be 4 months on the 11th of Aug. He has started laughing and rolling over. Maddox is the best at making him laugh, Harris loves his big brother!

We won't be posting a new blog for a while. We are busy packing right now, then we move into the new house and then we are leaving for a beach vacation 3 days after we close on the house. We have a busy few weeks ahead. A week at the beach will be the perfect end to all the house buying stress!

We hope you enjoy all the pictures!

A big fish and a little fish...

We decided to put Maddox in swimming lessons this summer because we thought he would really like it and that he really needed it. Well we are so glad we did. Apparently we are parents to a part human part fish. Maddox is crazy in the pool. He LOVES to swim and is very good at it. His teacher was blown away by what he would do in the water. And, we are very pleased with how well he can hold his breath underwater and come up for air when needed. He can hold it well enough to dive for quarters at the bottom of the pool. He really enjoyed jumping off the diving board and the popsicles he would get after every lesson. We learned a lot of ways to help him with his swimming and his technique. After his swimming lessons we went to Jamie's parents for the weekend and he got to swim around some more and practice his new skills.

Harris go to go swimming for the first time while we were at Jamie's parent's. He seemed to really like it and was very content in the water. So now we have a big fish and a little fish.

He went straight to sleep after swimming!

It seems like we have been so busy this summer. We have Maddox in Mothers Day Out right now and that is a huge help to Jamie. She is now able to get more things done around the house and run errands with just one little one in tow. She hopes to get started on some new sewing projects soon.

Here are some more pictures that we have taken the last few weeks:

Happy 50th Birthday PawPaw!!
