November 5th, 2012 by Ashley

3 months old my little Maddox! Why have you grown so fast!?!

Your weighing in at 15 pounds 7 ounces

You LOVE to smile.  You are thinking about rolling over but haven’t yet.

You are wearing 6 months clothes and size 3 diapers.

You have the longest fingers in the world.

You put yourself to sleep like a champ.   You are waking once a night.

Your brother really does love you despite the constant fists and poking and occasional pounce shift of body weight onto your head.

You love to talk and will coo for an hour at times.

I love you to pieces Maddox James!!

Pumpkin Patch

I love the pumpkin patch. What a perfect place for a toddler to have fun. Goats. Fields of pumpkins to climb on. Pony rides. Pumpkin pie. Space to run. It was a beautiful day with the family. Little Maddox was there too but sleeping the whole time so I forgot to get some pictures of him. So here’s to Luke overload 🙂

Maddox is such a wonderful baby.. I still can’t believe I have two kids. I am so happy Maddox is here with us now, he has blessed our lives tremendously…

He is growing so big, already weighing in at 13 pounds 11 ounces and is 24.5 inches. He has climbed the charts for both height and weight and is in the 90th percentile. Love me some big boys!! Both him and Luke are pretty equal in their growth, just reconfirming that I am going to have another tank 🙂 Gotta say momma never had bigger biceps because of these boys haha

Maddox is:

Sleeping through the night for the past 2 weeks. Is sleeping from 8-4, then falls back asleep until 7. YAY!!

Sleeps in his own bed and puts himself to sleep every night

Loves mommy’s voice. will give mom the biggest smiles

Loves his tummy rubbed. Sill liking tummy time for a short time

Starting to lift his head briefly while on his tummy

Is cooing and ahhing whenever momma talks to him

 

1 month old

September 11th, 2012 by Ashley

My baby is getting so big already.  I am a little late okay a lot late posting his one month picture. He is now 7 weeks old and is quite possibly the best baby ever. He has been such a joy in our lives and I thank my Heavenly Father everyday for him.

Little man was pretty serious for his photo shoot.. no smiles this time around!

Some fun facts about Maddox:

Weighing in at 10 pounds and 25 inches

Maddox is so happy 99% of the time. Cries only when he is very hungry and that’s about it.

He put himself to sleep at night, in his own crib 🙂

We are still trying to find a schedule during the day, but right now Maddox runs the show.

We are waking up about twice in the night.  I can honestly say I have never been so tired in my life. Chasing a 20 month old around the house during the day isn’t allowing mommy naps to ever happen.

Loves the sound of running water making bath time quite enjoyable.

He is wearing size 3 months clothes and wearing size 1 diapers.

LOVES tummy time and can actually fall asleep laying there, totally opposite from Luke.

Knows mommy’s voice and has started to smile when you rub his tummy.

Love you little man… Happy 1 month baby boy!!!

Maddox’s Newborn Pictures

Maddox James Weber

August 14th, 2012 by Ashley

July 19, 2012- born 4:24 am

8 pounds 3 ounces

21 inches

Our little guy finally made it.. Here is his birth story that I have been meaning to post for the last three weeks.

July 19, 2012 (Thursday) is your birthday little Maddox. One day after your due date. Labor started the day before in the afternoon of the 18th. I went to the doctor on the 17th Tuesday and I was still dilated to a 3-4, which I had been for the last 3 weeks. The next day during the afternoon I started to have some pretty strong contractions. I knew that they were a little stronger than the Braxtion Hicks I was feeling before because of the lower back pain I was feeling during the contractions. I went through the day and I started to time them just to see if they were coming regular and if they were getting stronger. By the time Danny came home from work, and my mom came down to visit, the contractions were getting much more intense than earlier, but nothing I couldn’t handle yet I thought. It was 9pm and Danny and I decided to just drive to the hospital to get checked out since my contractions were coming every 6 minutes or so. We got to the hospital around 10pm and there we had to go through the whole check in process and then I finally got checked around 10:45 where I was now at 5cm, so I had progressed from the day before, and by now my contractions were really intense. I think the little guy knew I was at the hospital so he wanted to come out. I got put into a room about midnight. By know I was having the worse back labor I didn’t know was possible. I was wanting to scream. Poor Danny was so tired and was trying to help me but nothing could help this pain. I had to wait before I could receive an epidural to see what my platelet count was at due to my levels falling during the pregnancy. They were telling me that they wouldn’t give me a epidural if my count was less than 100. Well my count was at 86. AWHH I was freaking out I just knew I had to have one with this back pain. So thankfully my nurse begged the anesthesiologist, which agreed to give me one. I finally received it around 3:45am. I was also on antibiotics again this time with being strep B positive. They checked me after the epidural and I was at a 9 1/2.. WHAT!! Of course I was in such pain.. It went so fast. The only problem was my epidural was given to me so late and so close to being a 10, my pain only went down slightly.. Danny called my mom and his mom and said you guys better hurry because were going to have this baby any minute… My midwife came in around 4am, broke my water and I pushed for 15 minutes and my little Maddox was born.. It was kinda nice having my epidural only work half this time, I was better able to control the pushing and go faster. Both moms made it in time and again we were blessed with another miracle baby boy. I am so in love with this little guy and can’t thank my Heavenly Father enough for giving him to me. Maddox James Weber was born 4:24am weighing 8 lbs 3 oz and 21 inches.

Luke has been such a great big brother. He loves Maddox so much, of course his way of showing it is sometimes a little to aggressive, so close eyes are always having to be on him. Danny is hands down the best dad ever to these little guys. He helps me with all the housework that seems impossible at times, changes dirty diapers, and is always willing to take Luke somewhere so I can have some peace. I can’t believe we are a family of 4 and how much we have grown and evolved as a couple and family in the past four years. Looking back I wouldn’t change one single thing.. Through endless blowouts, sleep insomnia, screaming tantrums, cuts and bruises, teething, throwing food I realize I would rather have all these things again and again than not have the opportunity to be a parent to these two boys!! I love them forever!!

Love them!!!

38 Weeks…

July 1st, 2012 by Ashley

Well here I am 38 weeks pregnant.. Can’t believe I will be a mother of 2 any day now! I am getting so excited to meet our little guy not so much going through the whole labor thing again. I have to admit my expectations for a easy labor are high due to my quick labor with Luke.. I know anything can happen and maybe that’s why I am feeling a little anxious. I went to the doctor last week and I was already dilated to almost a 4. I couldn’t believe it I was thinking after I left, boy this guy better not just fly out at home. We are a good 30 minutes from the hospital so I just know any contractions I am having I am  heading to the hospital ASAP. I really feel I won’t make it to my due date, I just would like to have him after the 4th of July and then any day is great!!

My sweet husband graciously decided to take my maternity pictures this time around. I had maternity pictures taken with Luke and I wasn’t planning on doing them again, but I know I’ll want them for memories later!! Thank you babe…

18 months

June 23rd, 2012 by Ashley

My little baby is 18 months today! Can’t believe how fast he grew. I am loving every minute of watching him grow. It’s amazing how his sweet spirit is such an example to me in my own life, to be more patient and to love unconditionally.

Some  fun things about Luke: 30 pounds and is 36 inches.

He is taller than everyone his age, usually towering over them

Loves to cuddle and give hugs

Wants you to read books to him all day over and over

Knows almost all his body parts by name and points them out

Loves almost anything to eat, new favorite is ketchup

Grabs your hand and wants you to follow him everywhere even if its in a straight circle around the kitchen 30 times

Loves to color, build blocks, climb on everything, put puzzles together, go down the slide all by himself, help mommy cook and his new favorite thing to do is take off his diaper AWHHH.

I can’t wait for Luke to be a BIG brother in a few weeks. He will love his little brother and I can’t wait to see them together.

Happy 1 1/2 years old birthday Lukey.. Love you!!!
