4th tooth

MDR's fourth tooth has popped through this week!  The top right one came through Tuesday October 30.  He had been such a pill the past couple of days so we knew it was only a matter of time!  He is back to being his normally happy self.  Still trying to master walking.

We have a walker!!!

I can hardly believe that I am typing that....Maddox has started taking more and more steps each day! It all really started last Friday evening when we were visiting Mimi!  He was down on the ground and we stuck our hands out and he took about two steps!  Each day he progresses a bit more.  He does really well and then seems to get tickled with himself.

I can hardly believe my tiny baby boy is well on his way to being a toddler!

a few more milestones

So Maddox has been growing up way too fast lately...

Last Thursday October 11was the last time Maddox nursed!  With Peyton, he nursed at least once a day until he was 15 months old.  I must say I never imagined we would ever make it to the one year mark, but we did.  He had only been nursing once a day for quite a while so I was expecting it not to last too much longer!  Another chapter has closed~

Also, as of today, his top left tooth has finally poked through!  THANK GOODNESS!!!  He woke up yesterday with a fever of 102 and was extremely fussy and cranky and clingy!  I immediately thought it was teeth so I just let it run its course and gave him plenty of motrin.  Today he was eating an finally let me feel and there it was!!

Now off to decide what to be for halloween!!!

So yesterday I totally forgot a few important things about Maddox.

He has his two bottom teeth and I think his top left isn't too far behind.
He loves to cruise on the furniture but still a bit apprehensive to let go and do it solo!  He stands perfectly and will "try" to walk.  It really is falling with style:)
He says mama and dada all the time.  He knows who Peyton is but not yet said his name.
He loves playing with any type of ball!
He is sleeping through the night and has been for a while.  He goes to bed between 8:30 & 9 and gets up between 7-8.
He normally cat naps in the morning and takes an afternoon nap between 2 and 3 which normally lasts about 2-3 hours.

I think that may be it... Probably not but for now!

MDR is 1!!!!

My precious little bundle of joy turned one on Sunday,  I can hardly believe that I just typed that!  It truly seems like yesterday we were in the midst of a horrible nightmare.  Seriously the longest two weeks of my life when Maddox was in the NICU.  Between him being there and Peyton and Kevin driving back and forth to Virginia...somedays I just look back and think how much we actually went through!  

Maddox had a fabulous birthday weekend!  We started the celebration in Winston Salem on Friday night where we had NC BBQ and A Mickey Mouse cake!  Maddox really got into that one!  He was covered in icing and he loved very minute of it!  The next day we headed to the fair and walked around and had turkey legs, ice cream and of course chocolate covered frozen bananas!  DELICIOUS!!!!  

Sunday was his actual birthday and we drove back to VA and went to the Elmo show.  We were exhausted but the boys had a blast!!!

One more celebration and that was last night for the family in VA!!!  We had chicken bbq( I am noticing a trend here) and of course cake and ice cream!  The theme this go round was the very hungry caterpillar.  The cake was too cute!  Pics to come later!

As for Maddox...he is doing great.  We had a check up on  Tuesday and he is doing great!
Weight: 15lbs 13oz (7%)
Height: 28 inches (3%)
He would seriously eat all day!  His most favorite foods are yogurt, bread, fruit of any kind...the list could go on and on.  He is a great eater.  
He is still wearing cloth diapers but when we do use disposable he wears a 3.
Clothes we are in 6-12 months
He has a head full of hair and looks just like his brother!  

What a sweet baby boy we have!  Seriously can't remember our lives before the little guy.
