So Maddox, What are you up to???
Well, we found out as of yesterday, you weighed in at 34 lbs! You are such a chunk of lead and I’m starting to struggle lifting and carrying you! Thank goodness you would rather walk on your own, we just need to teach you how to crawl in and out of your crib!! You are still in 2T clothing and wear 6-7 in shoes.
You are such a sweet sweet boy. You have started answering us in Yes and No answers and even when you say “No” it sounds so sweet!!! I’m sure that won’t last forever but for now, we don’t mind hearing it. When you say “yes” you always say “Oh Yeah” it’s too funny and I hope you always say it that way!
You are definitely all boy but you listen very well! When you do something you shouldn’t and we have to get on to you…we can tell you take it to heart. You are probably going to be very tender hearted like your Mom and Dad!
Your vocabulary is out the roof now!! You talk so much! You mimic a lot of the words you here! Everyday is new words. You are starting to put some words together like, “play ball”, “bye bye Nana”, “Big Truck” and “Caine School”.
You make Mommy laugh out loud everyday and that says a lot. (Mommy doesn’t laugh out loud at just anything.) It has to be pretty funny!!
We were taking you to the ER yesterday and one of your favorite CD’s (Cofey – christian acoustic/reggae) was on…as soon as the music to one of the songs started you started saying “ Hey, Hey, Hey”.(it was even in the right rhythm) How did you know that was the song that said that? I have listened to that CD at least 100 times and I don’t know that I would have known that was the right song with the “hey” part!
I’m going to have to start writing down things throughout the month…you are doing so many new things now and changing so fast…I get overwhelmed trying to think of all them to put in your update!
Last but not least, here is your blistered up “BooBoo” that you have done so well with. We have to keep your hand wrapped up at all times unless we are changing your dressing. The sight of this just makes me cringe. When I first saw how blistered it was last night, I about passed out. I definitely could have never been a nurse but I will do whatever I need to do when it comes to taking care of you! We love you so much and you could never ever know how much Joy you bring to us each and everyday!
