Fun Moments

When he is not crying, eating, or sleeping, this is what Maddox is up to...

Sitting up in the corner of the couch watching CSI with Mom.

Enjoying his clean diaper. He hates even the smallest amount of ANYTHING in there.

Maddox likes to pick his nose, especially when bored.

Having deep thoughts...maybe about sleeping or milk?

Maddox tries to wink, but he can't quite get it. Someday, someday.

Just being so dang cute.

More sitting up, he loves it. He feels like a big boy doing this.

In between smiles, he is so content.

A HUGE Maddox grin. He's been doing alot of these lately.

And finally...Maddox holding up his own head! He is getting so strong! He loves to sit up and hold his own head. He also likes to sit up high on our shoulders to hold up his head and push off of us with his arms.

That is what Maddox is up to.

Scott is working hard and taking a wildland firefighter class so he can fight fires next summer. Also, he is training to be a bartender at work. Who would have thought that the two of us, non-drinkers, would end up as bartenders? All I can say is there is good money to be had. And being in Utah County, there really aren't too many drinkers:) Either way, we still make more than the typical servers in our restaurants.

As for me, I'm still getting used to being a mom AND a wife at the same time. It is kind of difficult, I'm not going to lie. However, I am getting better at it. Sunday, I actually made a strawberry cheesecake! It was delicious. Yesterday, I made Chicken Alfredo pasta with sauteed bell peppers, broccoli, and garlic bread. That was delicious. On top of it all, I actually cleaned both bathrooms and did two loads of dishes in the dishwasher. We don't need to tell anyone that I cleaned the bathrooms at midnight when the men of the house were sleeping:) Well, the little man is waking up. Have a great day!

P.S. I bought my first groupon today!! $39 for a personalized 16x20 canvas:) I bought 2 to help decorate our bare house.

That smile is adorable! 6 weeks - wow! He sounds like a strong little guy.

Groupon is the bomb! I love it!

Being a mom and a wife is hard work, no? I wonder if you ever feel like you hit your stride and achieve balance? I hope so!

But it sounds like you are doing a fantastic job. I clean the bathrooms after everyone's asleep sometimes, too. Seriously, those are some of the best working hours in the day. :)

Maddox is really starting to fill out. He is so cute! He's not looking so much like a newborn anymore.

I can't believe he's growing so fast. Don't baby smiles melt your heart? He's such a cutie!

What sweet pictures. Maddox is such a little man! And you are such a good mama! I'm STILL trying to figure out the mom/wife thing- I'm thinking it's probably something I'll be trying to figure out for about 25 years. haha. Having the desire to be a good mom/wife is the most important part, I think!

I haven't used groupon yet- they just came to Anchorage! So I am EXCITED about finding some hot deals! You should post a picture of the canvas when you get it back!
