First of all, Maddox is getting funnier every day! I bought him this cute alligator backpack from BabyGap and had his name monogrammed on it for Mothers Day Out. I've had it laying out since I got it and he is obsessed with wearing it around the house. He doesn't even know what it is, he just likes to put it on. Its so cute! The other day he brought it to me to put on him, so I did. Then he dug through his toy drawer in the living room and found his bunny ears from Easter and brought those to me as well. So I put them on his head and he just walked around the house like that! He was so funny about it. I couldn't resist a pic so here is Madd in all the getup below. It was so funny that he did this all on his own!
We've had a fun week this week. Monday we went to eat lunch with other moms and kids and then took them to the pool. I guess there was 4 kids and they were all 2 and under. Of course, when we got to the pool, Maddox preferred to explore the surroundings rather than swim. (I think we are done going to the pool this year, its too much work on my part for him to not swim!) We both had fun and thanks to Crystal:) for inviting us!
Thursday we started back to Kindermusik. We hadn't been since Spring, so I was excited to get going again. Kindermusik is a class for kids where they learn music, rhythm, listening skills, etc. Last spring Maddox was not even crawling good, so he would sit in my lap and do everything the teacher said. NOW, however, he is walking and does NOT want to sit in my lap at all! He gets up and runs around and occasionally participates. He is having fun, but I think we miss some of the lessons:). We are actually in class with a friend of mine, Amber, from high school and another girl I went to college with. It was good to see some familiar faces! I'll keep ya posted on Maddox's progress.
Today we went to my friend Katie's house to pick up a painting she has done for the boys room. If you didn't already know, they are sharing a room. I bought Cruz the exact crib and bedding to match Maddox. It will be like if I had twins! Of course, Cruz won't sleep in the room with Maddox until we are sleeping through the night. Anyways, Katie does the cutest canvases (if your interested, I can get you her info!) and I had her do one that says "Brothers Make the Best Buddies". I gave her some fabric swatches, and here is the end result.....I LOVE IT, Katie....
So, Thank Goodness Its Friday, we plan to spend the weekend on the lake. Not many warm weekends left before Fall, so we're going to try to squeeze in as many as possible! Have a great weekend!
