The Bat Cave

Today my mom and I spent the day transforming Maddux's room into his "BatCave". As he would say..."TaDA!!!!"


we have a few more small things to add, but this is a hefty transformation for one day.

Most people go to bed, lay their head down and wait to fall asleep. NOT Maddux. He doesn't have the patience to just lay there. So, instead...he runs around his room jumping and playing until he uses the very last of his energy and then just passes out wherever he might be at that moment.

4 months

4 months = a lot of fun!

Reese has become so fun and interactive this last month!

*She giggles, squeals, and jabbers.
*She absolutely adores Maddux and smiles at the very sight of him.
*She holds on to toys and shoves everything in her mouth.
*She ALWAYS pulls her blankie over her face to fall asleep - freaks. me. out.
*She sleeps through the night (8:30-7:30)

*Weighs 13 pounds, 12 ounces, which is 50th percentile
*Is 25 inches long, which is the 90th percentile!

One of those days...

I think it's safe to say every mom has "those" days. Yesterday was one of mine. Nothing super explosive, just work calls starting at 6:45am, whiny kids, dumped goldfish piles, massive to do list on which nothing gets accomplished, a two year old shoving his sauce covered hand into the last purified glass of water I could muster out of the dispenser.
Just one of THOSE days.

I was counting down the minutes for Drew to walk in the door and save me from a near-meltdown. Instead my phone rang and he called asking if he could to go to a Dbacks game after work. I thought I hid my disappointment well when I told him to go ahead and go. Instead, he called his mom to babysit, drove home, picked me up and we went to the game together. We got sweet box seats with the servers who take your order and wait on you. Thank you LifeLock and Thank you to Drew for making my day SO much better!
I LOVE my husband!

Labor Day Weekend

We tried to make the best of living on the face of the sun (it's still 102 here) for our Labor Day weekend. Here are a few pictures of what we did to keep us busy...

My grandparents got me this piano when I was about 8 years old. It was an antique even then, but I am so excited to finally be able to have it in my own house! We had it moved yesterday and Maddux may have been as excited as I was! Let's just hope that when he has lessons, he retains a LOT more than I did.
Having this here is a reminder of how badly I practiced growing up and how well I do NOT play now.
