Maddox Turns 2!!!

When I was pregnant…there were 2 dates I was praying Ryder would decide not to come.  The first date was June 13th because that is when we had Maddox’s Birthday Party planned at Monkey Joe’s, the other was June 18th…Maddox’s Birthday.  Lots of people said they thought it would be neat if they were born on the same day…but I did not want that at all!  They will definitely be having joint birthday parties from here on out so I wanted them to have there on special day that they did not have to share!!  God granted me my wish and Ryder came at the perfect time…..8 days early and smack dab in between those 2 dates!!! Thank you Jesus!! Smile

So on Saturday we celebrated Maddox’s Birthday at home.

At this point, Maddox had not held Ryder…he just hadn’t warmed up to him quite that much yet!

I think I bribed him to give him a kiss….but it was still so sweet!!!

Around lunch time…our sweet neighbors came over to meet Ryder!!

A water table!!!  We originally bought a sand and water table and decided to take it back after reading reviews….it sounded like they just make a mess…does anyone else have a sand and water table?  Did we make the right choice by just getting the water table?  Stay tuned for how Maddox likes to play in it!!
