Good morning sunshine!

I love that this little guy is my wake up call every morning, even if some days its a little earlier than id like! Nothing better than walking into the room and greeted by this cute face!

We finally had to lower his crib. He is a crazy sleeper. He can't quite stand up by himself just yet but we are afraid that it will be any day now.

Playing Catch!

Eight is great!

 I seriously can't believe that I have a 8 month old. Honestly time is flying by like crazy. I know I say it a lot but I love this little guys more and more everyday. He seriously keeps us laughing and smiling. It is fun to watch him learn and grow. Here are some things this little guy is doing at 8 months. He laughs at anything and everything. He still loves baby food. He is yet to crawl. He has mastered the art of rolling and pulls on the carpet to change directions. I think he thinks this is all he needs to get around. He is a busy busy fella and is always going going going. Still loving Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Still loves to take naps and goes to bed at 7 and sleeps til 7. Loves being outside. He is finally starting to give kisses but count yourself lucky if you get one! He could live in the bathtub if I let him. He is a flirt with the ladies. His favorite thing in the world is still his monkey. I love that everyday is a new adventure with him.

 Madden also experienced a first this last week and got a lovely ear infection on top of having bronchitis again and RSV. I have to say that this past week has been hard for me seeing this little guy in so much pain. He ran a fever and just laid his head on my shoulder for two days straight. I knew something was wrong because he never does that! We were staying at my moms so we took him up to the doctor up there. Thank goodness for modern medicine is all that I can say. Even though he isn't 100 percent yet he is smiling again. All I can say is I will be so grateful for when cold/flu/rsv season is over.
Madden took a tub in my moms sink and thought it was pretty neat.

He wasn't too happy when I made him get out though!

Nikki and Lex came up and hung out for the weekend. Sadly Madden didn't get much playing time with Lexi but were hoping next time we wont be sick!

This picture breaks my heart. This is what he has looked like the past few days. Poor little guy!

A day at the races

This weekend we went and watched/supported my brother in law Courtney race motorcycles out in Delta. It was such a beautiful sunny day and we had a blast. Madden is such a boy and was fascinated with all the motorcycles. I tried really hard to keep sunscreen and a hat on Madden but we both came home with a little bit of a sunburn. It was fun and gets me so excited for spring/summer! We will be spending a lot of time outside that is for sure!

A walk with dad!

Days off with Karson are rare. He is a busy busy man and a hard worker at that. He left us last weekend to go to Vegas to watch BYU but he had the first part of the day off so we took some serious advantage of some time with our dad and hubby! We also took some advantage of the amazing weather we have had and went for a walk. It was beautiful and Madden loved every second of it. He was big smiles the whole time. We went and visited Pooper and Papa (Maddens g-grandparents) and were lucky enough to hang out with our cousins Ellie and Tanner. On the way home we stopped to see some horses and I think Madden thought they were pretty cool. It was a GREAT day!

Pictures I love of the people I love!

These two boys are my life. They make even the hard days better. Its crazy to think that in just a short while we will be adding another boy to the mix. I love this chapter in my life and wouldn't trade it for anything.

This little guy is crazy.  I love walking into his room in the morning or after a nap. This is what we usually find when we walk in.

This little guy loves food. When I am feeling like a rather nice mom I give him a graham cracker. He makes the biggest mess you can imagine but as you can tell he enjoys it rather well!
