Maddox One Month and Other Happenings.

Maddox was one month old last Tuesday...over a week ago...I'm a little behind but these pictures are from that day.  :)  Im just getting them up.  Isn't he so so so so....CUTE!!!  I love my handsome boys.
Today we started putting him in his crib to fall asleep by himself.  We are following the book BabyWise.  I hate hearing him cry but it only takes him a couple minutes and a couple re-insertions of the wubbanub (his paci)!  ;)  It has actually made today FANTASTIC!  I had no idea how easy it would be.

News on Jax: His parents spoiled him until recently by rocking him or walking with him until he fell asleep for every nap and every night.  What kind of parents do ridiculous things like that?!?!?  Oh, me.  Over the past couple of weeks we have been breaking this habit that his parents had started.  He has been a trooper and for the most part falls asleep every night and at every nap by himself.  (after a song, a book, and a prayer.  :)

Here is Jaxson getting to play outside on a warm day...can't wait until we get those back!!!  
I just really liked this pic. 
Aunt Mary came to town for a visit and Adam was over too!!!  Here are some pics of that visit.  This was actually the first picture I got of Adam holding Maddox!  Maddox's middle name is Michael...which is also Adam's middle name...he's named after his uncle!!!
My friend Amber and Luke came over a couple weeks ago to visit us!!!  Amber was one of my bridesmaids and is a WONDERFUL friend!!!  Luke is Jaxson's age...and she has another little boy on the way as well.  I'm so excited for our sons to grow up together.
This is the first picture of me with both boys since the hospital.
Mimi with baby Maddox...this was taken on the 10th...isn't he getting so big???!!!! for about 30 minutes Jax had to be wearing his sunglasses and in this picture he would not let go of Maddox's hand but he still wanted to play.  Of course, he was able to pull it off! 
...and those are all of our latest happenings.

You are such a wonderful mommie! Beautiful pics of your sweet little boys. Both of my children liked their "wubbanubs", as you called it. Hang on to that thing--It can really come in handy! :) Blessings to you today. You are doing a wonderful job, sweet mommie!
