Maxx was wearing one of Scott's baby outfits from 29 years ago when I picked him up today.

Check out the mesh sleeves!

I love that my mother in law kept some of Scott's old stuff. Everyone knows that I am all into traditions and sentimental stuff.

I am the biggest loser!!

I won the Finance Dept Biggest Loser Competition at work!


It was 10 women and went for 12 weeks. We weighed in at work each Thursday morning and we went by total % lost (not lbs.)

First prize was $150 and 2nd was $50.

And I won!

I lost a little over 10 lbs and 7.6% of my body weight.

This puts me below my pre-baby weight but still not where i want to be. I have about 11 more lbs to go to be a comfortable weight. However, my clothes still don't really fit well. Jeans are still tight, ugh, so frustrating. But at least I have an incredible baby to show for it so it is worth it.

5 months old!

My big guy turned 5 months old on Sunday - 7-19. WOW. So fast. Here are a few pics we took on the porch.

He is now more interested in the sign than he is in taking pics!

We don't have any official stats this month bc we don't go to the dr until his 6 month check up. But I weighed him on the scale at home and there was a 17.8 lb difference! So I am thinking he weighs in the mid 16's or so. Big boy!

On Friday we had a sleepover with cousin Kellie. And we had so much fun. Kellie is the most active 7 year old on the planet (I kid you not!) We did art and crafts, did exercised, and put Maxx in everything we could.

Here he is in his jumper with Kellie helping him out.

We also played on the porch with bubbles. I had read somewhere that babies Maxx's age would like bubbles.

Do you think he liked them?

Here is a really cute video I took of us on the porch. Sorry the camera is a little tilted. You will hear Kellie through out the video but you can also see Mr. Maxx's reaction. Enjoy!

So sorry

So sorry that I have been MIA lately. I have lots of stuff to post but we are having internet issues. Hopefully it will be working tonight and I can get some pictures posted. Maxx has been so cute. And he made 5 months old yesterday! WOW!

Busy Weekend

Hello all. We had such a busy but nice weekend. It all started on Thursday when we got to meet Litte Miss Maddie (see her blog to the right.) Maddie is the daughter of my cousin Cherie and her husband Dave. She is the cutest little girl you ever want to see. Then Saturday was my birthday. The big 29! Oh no! We spent the day at Maw-Maw El's house with the family. That night Scott and I hit the town with Will and Rachael. We had a really good time. I had not done that in forever. And Sunday Maxx and I had the best day ever. We slept on the couch ALL DAY! We woke up for breakfast, then slept, woke up for lunch, took an afternoon nap, and finally woke up for dinner. I haven't had a day like that in over a year!

On Friday, Maxx tried carrots for the first time. He seemed to like them but he was fussy this weekend. I am wondering if the carrots upset his belly.

Maxx also got another new toy this weekend. Sophie la Giraffe. He really seems to like her!

Here are two really cute pics of Maxx clowning around on the couch on Sunday at some point when we were awake.

And one for the y'all do-ers

Happy Birthday Paw-Paw

Maxx sends his love!!!!!

Something new everyday

It seems like we keep introducing Maxx to new things. Yesterday it was his highchair. Gran Pat built it for us. He seems to be adjusting. It just takes us a little longer to get him settled to eat and he is impatient. At least he looks cute in it.

Here are some pics that were taken on 4th of July.
A 4 generation one.

And a great one of us and the godparents.
