A success!!

We got Maddux a "Big Boy Bed" and tried it out for the first time last night. It was a disaster, to say the least. Nap time today presented similar problems. Third times a charm, right? YES! We put him down for bed tonight and to be honest, we forgot about was silent. When we went in to peek, this is how we found him...
I'm not getting TOO excited, because heaven knows how tomorrow will go!
But I do think he looks dang cute!

We have been having a lot of timeouts at our house lately. Usually it's from throwing his food all over the ground.
Drew and I have to turn our backs and bite our lips to keep Maddux from seeing us smile. He is TOO cute- even when he's in trouble.
He sits in this corner with his arms folded for 2 minutes. When time is up, he gives us hugs and says "sorry" (which sounds more like "saw").

Boring Blog

I feel like I've become that person with the boring blog. I have NOTHING fun to write about. Lame.

Drew had hand surgery on Monday and it's been a little different around here this week. He can't get his hand wet which eliminates a lot more chores/maddux baths than I realized. He has limited mobility in his hand and fingers and needs to take it easy for a while. He has been a total trooper and has done really well so far! We are looking forward to his follow up appointment this Wednesday to make sure everything still looks good!

Maddux STILL has a double ear infection and now has an appointment with the ENT on the 24th to look into getting tubes for the poor little guy.

After 2.5 years (in this ward) and 2 years (in my last ward) I was finally released as the YW secretary today. It's going to be crazy having an extra night of the week to spend at home and I'm not even sure what you DO in Relief Society anymore.

Baby appears to be growing well as my tummy is way larger than I think it should be at 15.5 weeks. Already into maternity clothes, which doesn't quite seem fair. That's a LOT of weeks left to wear not-so-cute clothes! Wish me luck!

Hopefully I'll get some motivation to revamp the blog here soon. For is a pic of Drew and his "ow ow ow", as Maddux calls it. :)
