Sunday Lovin!

Nothing better than a lazy Sunday! Madden is an amazing sleeper these days and practically begs me to put him down for a naps and bedtime. Every time we check on him this is the position he is in. He loves sleeping on his side right up against the rails. My mother in law made me the cutest bedding but I had to take out the bumpers because I am afraid he would suffocate he gets so close to the side.

Madden is just like his Mom and loves to snack! It is so nice because he is starting to feed himself. Whenever I have food he thinks he has to have food too. Whenever I get out his snacks he just starts to giggle! Boy after my own heart!

Oh and check out these beauties!

Tag, You're it!

Madden has a weird obsession with tags. He some how finds tags on everything! He will turn his monkey around a million times until he finds his tag. He has a serious love for his monkey. He rubs it all over his face until he falls asleep sucking on the darn tag. He is so crazy and makes us laugh everyday!

Madden in his saucer full of many toys yet he chooses to play with the tag!

. This is Maddens mode of transportation. He arches his back and scoots everywhere! He even knows how to make a full circle. It is so funny to watch. We try and try to put him on his tummy to crawl but I'm afraid he is content with his backward scoot!

My big boy!

Madden is growing up so fast! He will be six months in a few days if you can believe it! His little personality is coming through everyday and he makes me laugh constantly. He has the cutest little smile that lights up his whole face! He has just learned to sit up finally and I am loving that he can entertain himself for a few minutes. He still loves Mickey Mouse Club house. His favorite toys are the ones he can stand up in and bounce around. He is a people person and loves to be in a crowd. He loves LOVES baby food. He LOVES LOVES LOVES his bottle and screams every time he sees it. He is finally sleeping through the night. (hallelujah!)  His bedtime is 6:30 and he practically begs to be put to bed. We seriously love this little boy.

The Discovery Museum

We went up to the Children museum at the Gateway. It was so much fun! My cousin and her family were in town and invited us to come along. The kids LOVED it! Madden was in heaven just watching everyone from the umbrella stroller. I don't think I heard a peep from him the whole time we were there which is very unusual from that boy! Im so glad we went up and I cant wait to take Madden back when he is a little bit older.

Happy New Year!

We brought in the New Year with our friends! We partied hard at Nat and Devs new house. We ate yummy prime rib and it was delicious! We played games and had a dance off with the WII. It was HILARIOUS! It was a work out too and by the end of it I was exhausted. I am so thankful for such good friends. We always have so much fun when we get together.

Madden would not sleep so we decided to just let him bring in the new year with us! 

The year 2010 was a really good year for our family! We were blessed so much throughout the year. The best thing that happened was Madden. He has changed our life in so many ways and it only gets better and better! Karson graduated with his bachelors and passed his MRI boards. We got a laundry room. We were able to go to Disneyland with our family. I got the best job of all and get to stay home with Madden. We learned we are having another little blessing. What a great year! I am so excited to see what 2011 will bring our family. There are so many big changes coming up in our life and I welcome them!

Maddens First Christmas

We had a very Merry Christmas this year! It was fun having the little guy around to help us celebrate, even if he didn't have a clue what was going on. We got a big Christmas surprise a few days before Christmas when we found out I was pregnant... again! I don't even know why I honestly took a test except for that I had a dream the night before I was pregnant. When I took the test and that beautiful line appeared I just started crying. Karson was at work so I sent him a text and told him to call me when he was alone. I was afraid to tell him but he was so excited! Two home test and a blood test later confirmed it was true. We didn't know how far along I was but we decided to tell our families anyways and keep up the tradition of surprising them with the news on Christnmas! Karson and I thought it would be funny to find a big brother shirt and have him wear it but who makes big brother in size 5 months! We had to make a little adjustment but it worked out.  We told my family first on Christmas Eve. Karson handed Madden to my mom and she kept saying what did he do, did he poop. My sister Jami just kept saying why did you change him, he looked so cute! It took a few minutes to realize it but it was great! We got the same reaction from Karsons family that night! I don't think anyone was expecting it, but honestly we weren't either. My due date is September 1 and we are honestly getting excited and used to the idea!

I think we wore Madden out on Christmas Eve cause he was still sleeping when we got up. Karson and I decided it might be nice to open up our stuff without having to wrestle with Madden and it was so nice! We had a very nice Christmas and we each got spoiled!

We finally woke Madden up at about 7:30 and it was so confused why we were waking him up. It was pretty funny! He must of been a good boy cause Santa spoiled him rotten! He didn't really care about the presents but he loved ripping the wrapping paper.

We spent the rest of the day being with our families and just enjoying each others company. It was honestly a very relaxing day. Unfortunately Santa brought me a horrible case of Mastitis and I hope I never get that again. Madden gave us the best present and sleep through the night for the first time. I think we exhausted him with two days of excitement! All in all it was a pretty good Christmas. It is crazy to think that next Christmas we will have two little ones!
