Abby Turns 1...just a little late

Where has the time gone?  It seems like I was just getting ready for Thanksgiving and now it’s almost New Years’!  I don’t think I am going to win Mother of the Year this year (since it took me over a month to post about my 2nd born’s first birthday, and we wonder why the middle child gets a complex?) so I’ll guess I’ll shoot for 2012.

We had many celebrations with lots and lots of family for Abby’s birthday, which fell on Thanksgiving this year.  We had chocolate cupcakes that looked like turkeys, “I’m 1!” onesies, crowns & only a few fights over presents.  Overall it was a success.

It was only one short year ago I was walking up and down our street, eating spicy food & bouncing on the exercise ball trying to get her out.  Now she’s doing so much:

Saying “Boo” & “Mama”
Eating so much we usually have to cut her off
Not sleeping
Starting to sign (food, more & music)
Terrorizing the cat & sometimes Tula
Pooping in the bathtub – almost every night
And doing EVERYTHING her sister does

She definitely has a “strong personality” and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

We love you Abigail Louise!

Welcome Baby Maddax

On November 9th @ 3:57pm, baby Maddax James was born to our good friends the Camburn family.  He was a few days early, although I didn't hear his mama complaining about that.

Since Jon & Erin decided not to find out the sex of their baby before he was born, they got a lot of green & yellow clothes.  So, after his arrival we threw a "Help start baby Maddax's wardrobe" shower.

He got a lot of good "little man" clothes for his whole first year.  I think he was pretty excited about it, although he slept through most of the shower!  Everyone had a turn to meet Maddax, even Mr. Camburn (Jon's dad) held him for the first time since he was born.

Welcome Maddax!  We are so happy to finally have you here.
