Happy Birthday Maddux!

Maddux is one today! His party isn't until Saturday, but we had a really great day together. We started off by having lunch at Taco Bell. Then Maddux got a haircut at Snip-Its. While we have a very hard time paying so much for a hair cut, they do such a great job keeping him happy and occupied and gave him a great cut! Then we headed to the mall to get him some new pants with the money his great Grandma and Grandpa Ingram sent him! He played for a bit in the kids area and had a blast pretending to be one of the big kids! For dinner we met Grandma, Bop Bop, Kasey, Joel, Great Grandma and Grandpa Craig for Dinner at Red Robin.
This past month has been a busy one for the little guy! He has said goodbye to crawling and walks everywhere he goes now! We have also wished a happy farewell to formula! He is only drinking whole milk! We celebrated his first Christmas, and we just discovered today that he now has two molars, making 10 teeth in all. His vocabulary has grown too...he now says, dada, bopbop (my dad's name from the grandkids), hot, hat, and balloon (in his own variation). He is completely and utterly obsessed with balloons and it is the first thing he asks for when he wakes up in the morning. He can spot one from a mile away and then holds onto it for dear life! He is growing up so fast right in front of our eyes! I can't believe it! He still cracks us up and keeps us on our toes 24/7 and we love him to pieces!
Happy Birthday Pork Chop!

I can't believe that he is walking and talking... Brax is doing none of the above. And I so think the hair cut is worth it, he looks so adorable. I wold take Braxton to get one for sure if he would sit there but he is a turd and goes nuts whenever I cut his hair so I know there is no way he will sit there long enough!!
