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!

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.
