This blog has not been updated in a long time! Sorry, the whole month of June was a crazy whirlwind of activity! We had trips to Lafayette, vacation bible school, swimming lessons, camping, playdates, etc etc. We look forward to July, we have an empty calendar!!

The boys are doing fantastic. Maddox has been enjoying the summer a great deal. He had a week of swimming lessons in June and he also has them this week. Of course, he loves them! He is doing really well and is very confident in the water. Today he decided that he was going to learn to dive after watching some older boys do it during the lesson before him. His teacher got such a kick out of it and he was actually pretty good. We have learned that swimming is a great way to wear Maddox out and get out lots of his energy, He often tells us "I have lots of energy!"
Some of Maddox's favorite things right now are riding his bike, eating popsicles, swimming, and painting. He also likes playing with Harris a lot.

It is so hard to get them both looking at the camera!!

Harris is doing great too! He finally started walking on June 16! He would take about nine or so steps then decided it was much faster to crawl. But now he is completely walking, no more crawling for him. It has opened up a whole new world for him and for us! It is so cute to see him toddle down the hall to his room with paci in mouth and book in hand when we tell him it's time to go to bed.
He has a small vocabulary now. He can say cracker, hot, mama, dada, dog, and wow. He also calls Maddox "maa maa."
Here is some video of Harris walking, you can tell that Maddox gets really excited when we take the video camera out!

Harris adores Maddox and has to do everything he does. They really enjoy each others company so much and play very well together. They do get in quite a few squabbles though, don't want to paint too rosy of a picture!

Jamie and the boys took a trip down to Lafayette early June to visit some friends and family. She stayed with her friend Michelle she also has two boys who are very close to the same age as Maddox and Harris. The boys all played great together and they all had a great time.

Playing with Preston, this picture just screams trouble!!

They also got to visit with MawMaw and PawPaw Bernie. Of course the first thing Maddox wanted to do was ride PawPaw Bernie's tractor. Harris even got to have a ride!

This last weekend for the Fourth of July we went down to H-Town to visit with Jamie's parents. The boys had a great time in the pool! Maddox went swimming about 3-4 times a day, anytime anyone would say yes to taking him he would go!

We also did some fireworks. Maddox liked them ok as long as they didnt make too loud of a pop! Harris loved them, we had to stop him from trying to go up to them.
So, the newest excitement around here is that our new little blessing should be arriving sometime in January! Yep, thats right we have a new little one on the way. Jamie is about 12 weeks along and everything is going great! Thankfully, this pregnancy has not been as hard on her as the last two. We are all very excited and Maddox loves talking about the new baby. He'll ask us out of the blue sometimes "are we going to have a new baby?!"

So life around here has been pretty hectic and tiring but we are making it through!
