Our Easter weekend

This Easter was spent much differently than what we had planned. As I said in my last post we spent much of it in the ER getting Madden some fluids through IV. We finally figured out what was wrong with the poor little guy. He has viral pneumonia. I know I said in my last post it was ruled out but I guess he was so dehydrated that it didn't show up on the x-ray. We had to go back in on Saturday to do the fluids again. Gosh it is crazy what a little refill can do. He was a total different baby. Friday he just laid there but Saturday we had to get a bit creative and try to entertain a 9 month old for a few hours. Thank goodness for Mickey Mouse and Graham crackers.

We spent the rest of Saturday at home just hanging out and watching movies with our little guy. We had to forgo all the family actives we had that day but it was kind of fun just being with our family of 3. We don't get to spend THAT much quality time with each other. By 4 we all had cabin fever and had to get out. Karson's Aunts and Uncles were camping just outside of Nephi so we went up and had dinner. Madden and I spent most of our time in the trailer but it was nice just to get out of our home.

I love these two pictures. Madden hates having the sun in his eyes and will just cover his face with monkey and leave it there.

We woke up and had a little Easter egg hunt  for Madden at our house. We didn't really hide the eggs  but he just enjoyed playing with them all over the floor.

Than I made a delicious breakfast. Kars was very surprised so I had to document it!

Madden was acting much better and was no longer contagious thanks to antibiotics so we headed over to Connie and Georges for our Easter baskets. We all got spoiled.... even the baking baby! Madden found his basket!

(sorry I realize I look huge but we don't ever get all three of us in a picture!)

We than headed over to pooper and papas house for our favorite hunt! During dinner Madden had a code brown and needed a bath. After that we went on our hunt. Madden made out with quite the loot! He came in 2nd for the most money! Wahoo!

I hate having a sick baby but love how cuddly my boy has been! Now that he is feeling a little better he thinks he has to be constantly touching me. Not that I don't love it but I'd like to use the bathroom by myself! I look down and this is what I see. I'm just glad he is on the mend!

It was a great weekend despite the sickness. I love Easter for so many reasons. I love being reminded of the Saviors love that he has for each of us. I am so thankful that he died for us so that we can live with him again. That my little family can be sealed forever. I couldn't imagine living any other way.

One sick little guy :(

As I mentioned in my last post Madden hasn't been feeling real well. Well last night was horrible so we took him in this morning. We went to the clinic and the doctor looked at Madden and sent him straight to the ER. They hooked him up to an IV and did many test to figure out whats wrong. I'm so happy Karson worked in Nephi today so he could take his xray and be there with me. Luckily RSV and Pneumonia were ruled out.   He has a high fever that wont go down which was making them nervous. It broke my heart to see my little guy in so much pain. He just laid there while they poked and prodded. Luckily we got to go home but get to go back tomorrow for more IV fluids. Poor kid can't get better. So we will be spending our Easter weekend at home hopefully getting better!

Happy 9 months to you!!

This beautiful blue eyed boy is 9 months old. Time doesn't seem to slow down around here. It seems like it was just yesterday I was trying everything to get him out and here we are just 3 months shy of his 1st birthday. Maddens personality is really starting to develop. He is seriously the happiest little baby around unless he is tired. If you have not noticed he loves him some food. He could eat and eat and eat. He is really busy and keeps me going all day long. Now that he is crawling he is into everything and anything he can get his hands on. He loves to pull himself up on everything. He loves bathes only if I am in with him now. If not he pulls on my arm to try to get me to come in. He is a serious Mommas boy. When you tell him no he thinks its the end of the world. He loves swinging himself in his jumper. Still an amazing sleeper and goes to bed between 6:30 and 7 and wakes up around 7 or 7:30. He loves to clap and say yay! He just learned how to do patty cake. He says yay, hey, and hi. He will not say ma ma or da da for the life of him! Whenever we work on it with him he just laughs. He gets so excited when Karson comes home. He is really the light of our lives. I thank Heavenly Father every day for letting him come to our home. He has brought so many blessing into our lives. We love you Madden boy! Happy 9 months!

I just had to post this sad sad picture. For some reason this boy has had a rough winter and is sick again. We just cant shake the cold around here. I feel so helpless but honestly I cant resist this little face.

Weekend at Nanis

We spent most of the weekend up at my moms just hanging out and playing with cousins that we have not seen in a while. It was so much fun. Madden loves watching all of his older cousins play. He just sits and laughs at them most the time. It was a great way to spend the weekend!

Madden loves pickles just like his Momma! 

Madden playing with Lexi.

Madden and Dad looking for eggs!

Madden didn't have a basket so we improvised!

He didn't seem to mind!

Everyone checking out there prizes.

We went for a walk down to the new park. 

Madden and Lexi were loving the swings.

You can't tell from the picture of course but every time Madden would swing forward he would run with his legs. It was the so funny!

Everyone sat on Kars to watch Mickey Mouse on the Ipod. 

We love weekends where we get to hang out with cousins. I especially love this time of year when we can hang out outside and play all day! It was a great way to start off Spring!

My little man is officially crawling! He started crawling on Saturday night! It is so funny to watch him go all over the place. Even though he is now into everything he is much happier and content! He is getting so big! Madden stop growing up so fast!

Its been one of those days for my little guy!

Its been a rough day for Madden. He has an obsession with cords these days! Well of course he does they have warning labels on them that make one fantastic tag! I walk out of the room for one minute and come back and he has them in his mouth. We have a space heater in our living room and our laptop and he is obsessed with it them both! He rolls and scoots his way over and will reach under the couch to get to them. I am pretty sure he knows he shouldn't touch them because he looks at me first before doing it! I tell him no and he pouts for seriously a good 5 minutes. I finally took them out and he has been crying ever since. I think we may be in trouble!

Its a good thing I am head over heels for this cute face!
It makes you appreciate rare moments like this! Thank goodness for Mickey Mouse!

There is a first for everything!

Madden had a lot of first this weekend...

First hair cut

I can't believe my baby is old enough to get a hair cut! He was in need of a trim so I took him to cookie cutters. Cost an arm and a leg but the lady did so good with Madden. He was in heaven and just watched Mickey Mouse and only cried when she trimmed around the ears. I cried a little as she cut those little baby hairs off! Makes me sad he is growing up but he looks like a stud!

First time in big boy undies.

Wait let me rephrase that. Big bear undies! Aunt Ky undressed her build a bear and decided to dress up Madden. I think he looks like such a big boy in his big boy underoos! I love how tight they are, especially around those chunky thighs!

First time cuddling with dad.

Madden does not cuddle. I have been very lucky and gotten a few cuddle sessions with the boy when he was sick or if he is extremely tired but even than its rare. Karson has yet to receive the love until tonight! Madden goes to bed pretty early but we were over at Kars parents watching the final four games tonight so he was up way past bed time. He was so tired that he just laid on Kars and held still for a good 45 minutes. Not going to lie I was pretty jealous but glad Kars finally got some good quality cuddle time in with his boy!

Oh and Madden crawled a little ways today! Wasn't much but we were pretty excited!
