Dear Maddox.

Happy first birthday little man. I love you soo much. You are such a joy. I feel blessed beyond measure to be your mom. You have brought so much laughter and smiles this last year to our family. Your brother has become your best bud, it melts my heart when you guys are playing with each other and when Luke jumps into your crib after you wake up without fail to lay with you and rub your back.. Of course 99 % of the time Luke is usually showing more tough love than anything, so it will be nice when you get big enough to defend yourself.

Weighing in at 21 pounds 14.6 ounces. 27 inches

Maddox at 1 years old:

Maddox really you really are the sweetest spirited kid ever. Content. Rarely gets upset. Puts himself to sleep every time. Loves people. Loves to laugh. He is officially walking. That happened way too fast. Happiest baby. Can take you anywhere and I know that you will behave. Your still not eating food, hoping it happens soon. I love you more and more each day!!! Your mommy’s little mini me!!! Love you for infinity!!!





11 months

11 months!! Seriously! I only have 1more month until by baby is no longer a baby. (officially turns 1 next week) I can’t believe how fast time as flown. I guess it only seems fast now because I am looking back, but actually that was the longest year of my life lol.. I am still running on empty barely keeping my eyes open half of the day. Two kids close together and both in diapers is no joke. Honestly I know I will be completely joyed when the boys can play with each other growing up and be into the same things at the same time because of their age,  but sometimes for that brief moment when their both whining and screaming and needing to be changed, I think to myself WHAT in the world were you thinking Ashley!

Maddox is the sweetest cuddle bug ever. He has the greatest temperament, even when getting pounced and pushed by his brother on a daily (minute to minute) occasion.

Maddox is weighing in at 21 pounds

He is free standing and taking a few steps already.

He is still not having ANYTHING to do with food.. I mean nothing! It’s getting a lot harder to see an end to this breastfeeding thing.

Is still waking up once to eat at night. Still a great napper.

Loves the water! Definitely going to be a swimmer. Screams when you take him out.

He is wearing 12 months clothes, size 4 shoes, and size 4 diapers.

Is growing quite the ponytail, I will admit I don’t want to get ride of it despite what Dan says.. but I might just have to bite the bullet and do it before he turns 1 next month.

Started crying when he sees me leave the room. Just started getting a little stranger danger, took longer than I thought it would take.
