3 Months

Well today our little boy is 3 months old!
I can't believe it! Time is flying by so fast.
One minute I can't wait for him to be doing the next best thing,
yet at the same time I wish he was still a tiny newborn.
Eric and I fall deeper and deeper in love with him everyday.
Every time he laughs or smiles or coos, well pretty much everything
he does makes us smile or laugh, even pooping!

Maddix loves:
(I pretty much say the same things every month!)
To laugh and smile!
To blow bubbles and DROOL!!
(People keep telling me he may be getting his first tooth...Let's hope not.)
His swing, he sleeps in it every night.
To watch TV. He can just sit and stare at the lights forever!
To tell us stories, he coos all the time.
Bath time, he seriously loves it! He will talk and smile the whole time he is in there.
To be bounced, always has to be moving.
He loves it when I play with his arms and then tickle his tummy...
guaranteed laugh almost every time.
His monkey sack (this is what Eric calls it...the carrier that I put him in instead of his stroller)
To sit up, he is still trying to conquer holding up his head but what can ya do with a head so big!

Maddix hates:
Tummy time! We can only get him to lie on his tummy for a few minutes
and then he has had enough.
His carseat, we are getting better at just chillin in it,
but if he's not asleep he wants nothing to do with it.
The Bulb (the thing to get all his boogies)
When we stop at right lights or even a stop sign.

We Love you Maddix!

Naughty and Nice

We took Maddix to see Santa yesterday...
This was the end result of standing in line for over an hour and a half, being tired, hungry and maybe even a little scared!
(If you look close you can see a little tear running down his cheek)

Twenty Eight

Today is Eric's 28th Birthday!
We had a pretty low key day, but it was very nice.
Eric said all he wanted for his birthday was to spend the day with Maddix...
he definitely got his birthday wish!
We love you and hope you had a great Birthday!
Maddix sure does love his daddy!

You're So Funny!

Maddix has really started to laugh.
It is seriously the cutest thing we have ever seen. It melts our hearts each time.
This morning we got a really good laugh out of him for about 3 minutes, so we tried to get him to do it again but he wasn't really that into it... but we did get a few pretty good chuckles!


This year we went up to Idaho Falls for Thanksgiving.
It was a little crazy this year, we all stayed at my sister's house, and with 3 new additions this year our days were nothing but busy!
We had a great Thanksgiving dinner, played lots of fun games
(Thanks Staci for teaching me Nertz!), and enjoyed all the time with family!


This has taken me forever to post!
On opening day a group of us went and saw Twilight! It was great, not as good as the book but very good still! We all loved it. I can't wait to see it again and am dying to read all the books again!

Two Months Old

Maddix is 2 months old today! I can't believe how fast time is flying by, it really does just seem like he was born yesterday! He is growing up so much and changing week by week. We have his 2 month appointment next week and I am excited to see how much he has grown.

Maddix Loves:
To smile, he smiles all the time. Especially when Eric or I talk to him.
To sleep, he still sleeps most of the day. A few times he has slept for most of the night (7-8 hours!!) He also still loves to sleep with mommy.
He loves to be bounced, he can tell when Eric or I have sat down or stopped moving, cleaver little guy.
He is starting to coo...not much but it is so adorable.
He loves music, anything that makes music, swing, toys, tv, camera, Eric's phone, Everything! He is starting to enjoy his bath time. He hates getting in and out, but while he is in there he loves it!
He is starting to like his Binky! This has been an amazing thing for me!
He loves to cuddle, I can't get enough of it!
He really loves his daddy!

Maddix Hates:
Getting his diaper changed
Being put down
Being naked
The hiccups
The car seat, we're working on this one :)
Eric says: Soap operas, Broncos, and Pinnacle!
The many faces of Maddix!

This was how Maddix woke up after sleeping for 8 hours! Such a happy boy!
We both love to hold Maddix and love it even more when he falls asleep on us...
it makes us very sleepy too apparently!

WHO DOES LAUNDRY? Me of course!
WHO MOWS THE LAWN? Neither, we paid someone to do it, Eric says he will never mow our lawn, something about allergies or something like that!
WHO KISSED WHO FIRST? Hmm...not sure, probably me.

Thanks Papa for our matching shirts!
So fun!

Maddix's Blessing

This past Sunday Eric and I blessed our little Maddix. Eric did such a great job and gave Maddix such a sweet blessing. After Maddix's blessing we rushed over to Dustin and Lisa's ward to take part in another special blessing of little Cohen. What a great day when you can have to babies that you love so much blessed!
Thank you to all our family and friends that came, you too made the day very special.

I had to post this picture of little Dhylan...isn't she adorable!

Eric caught me!!
I try to sneak Maddix into bed with me whenever possible...
I just love having him sleep with me!

Who's Your Daddy?

My two Handsome Boys!

First trip!

Last week we went up to Idaho Falls for a couple days to celebrate Payton's birthday and also to be there when Nicole and Brady blessed Dhylan. Maddix did so well in the car and slept almost the whole way. He also accomplished another huge thing while we were there...he now sleeps in his own bed and not with mommy! I must admit that this was a little hard for me. I was being selfish and just wanted to keep him sleeping with me, but he actually does quite well sleeping on his own...I shed a few tears over this :)
The birthday and blessing were great and we can't wait to bless our little guy in a week!

Chunky Monkey

We went to the Doctor today to get our flu shots and while we were there I decided to weigh Maddix. I'm always a little worried that he's not getting enough to eat...well my doubts were shot down today.
He's gained 2 lbs in 2 weeks!
Our little Maddix weighs 10 lbs 6 oz!

Maddix is One Month Old!

A moment ago, your heart beat under mine.
Now, I can touch your chest and feel your actual heartbeat.
A moment ago, your feet were lodged beneath my ribs.
Now, your feet are nestled in my hands as I count each precious toe.
A moment ago, I couldn't imagine what you would look like...what you'd feel like.
Now, I can hold you in my arms, take in your sweet face and touch your petal soft skin.
A moment ago, I could no longer stand the pain.
Now, I stand in awe of our awesome and gracious God.
I can't believe that Maddix is a month old...tomorrow! This past month has flown by so fast.
We have had a busy month with lots of visitors...maybe that's how Maddix got his cold :)
We are going on our first road trip to Idaho this week to visit family for Payton's 3rd birthday and Dhylan's baby blessing.

We both feel so lucky to be parents and are loving every minute of it!
I just don't want Maddix to get any bigger, I love this stage of life!
I love being a mom and it is more wonderful than I ever expected it could be.
I think I still have some pregnancy hormones raging, cause every time I look at him and realize that he is my baby I start to cry!

A few things about Maddix:

Being held, sleeping on Mommy's chest, eating, Daddy's voice, being held some more,
and even more sleep.

Having his diaper changed, getting out of the bath, having his clothes changed, sleeping anywhere but right next to mom, having to wait one second longer than he'd like to eat.

A Few of my Favorites!

We got our pictures taken with Maddix when he was 5 days old from this photographer, Skye Johansen. She is absolutely amazing! My sister surprised me and had them rushed, I am so excited to have them and can't wait to put them up all over my house!
Isn't Maddix's little hat in these pictures so cute!
I seriously can't get enough of him!!

Cousin Love!

We had to get a picture of all the babies together!
It was a crazy weekend with 3 brand new babies... We went to this Boutique on Saturday and everyone thought they were triplets! I feel bad for anyone with twins, we seriously got stopped by about a HUNDRED people wanted to look at the babies and asking a million questions...
(sorry Megan and Amy...and Alli too!) :)

Like Father Like Son...

On Sunday the Chargers played the Broncos, even though they lost Maddix and Eric had a great time watching the game!

The Trio has arrived!

Well 6 days after Maddix was born he was joined by the 3rd baby of the trio, Cohen Dustin Vohs! Cohen is just precious. I will let Lisa and Dustin tell you all about him on their blog, but just wanted to say congrats!

So now we have Dhylan 5 weeks, Maddix 1 week, and Cohen. It's going to be so much fun with all these little babies!
