16 months...

Maddux is 16 months months now and he is just getting TOO big TOO fast!
He has such an awesome personality and is busy busy busy! I tell people all the time that Maddux is a "super active kid". People always nod their heads and pretend to understand...then they MEET Maddux!! Don't get me wrong, I LOVE having an active little guy, but boy are we busy around here!! I don't think we ever sit still for 10 second at a time! Don't believe me? Let's schedule a play date, come and see!

Maddux never ceases to crack me up, I have so much fun watching him figure things out and become such a little kid. He can say a lot of words when prompted, but mostly sticks to "shoes" and "cheese" when he talks on his own. He sure does jabbers a ton though!

He has stopped walking. Yes...stopped. He has now decided that running everywhere is a much more efficient way of getting places. So, we run!

He has become a great eater but his very favorites right now are cottage cheese, edamame, blackberries, frosted mini wheats, and cheese quesadillas. He will eat these until his little tummy explodes!

We have so much fun and I absolutely love that I get to stay home with this guy every day!! What a blessing!

egg hunt.

Great Grandma and Grandpa Craig offered to babysit Maddux last night so Drew and I could have a relaxing dinner out. It was awesome and Maddux had so much fun with them! Thanks for the new toy!
When we went in to get Maddux this morning...this is how we found him. This is no fault of Grandma and Grandpa, as he has been working very hard these days to get his diaper off himself. There are many mornings I find him pantless, today he was just extra successful.

This morning was the ward easter egg hunt. Maddux had a blast running through the chaos of kids and trying to find eggs for his basket.

This is Maddux after he got SO excited, he found an egg under the piano all on his own, reached down to pick it up and stood straight up with a huge BONK on the head and dropped his egg. Meanwhile, another excited kiddo swooped in and snagged the egg....
No worries, playing on the piano made everything all better....who needs eggs anyway??
It was raining outside and Maddux kept running into the hall and to the doors to watch the rain. I just like this pic....:)

Fifteen Years From Now... baby will have a real one of these. (Ok, probably not a Porsche, but a car). The thought scares me!(He is not sad here, he is screaming with excitement when Daddy let him go!)

watch out world!!!
