I am beginning to wonder if Fall is a season here. The temps. are still in the 90's and that is difficult when you are 30 weeks pregnant and have a toddler that wants to be outside. I decided that today I would grin and bear it for his sake and we would spend some quality time outside. Maddox was sweating about 2 seconds after we got outside and I was too. But he had a great time nonetheless. And I love it when he has a great time so we will probably do it again tomorrow. :)
Last week, the day before Maddox turned 18 months old, Mom and I took him to get his first haircut. Bless his heart... ever since we moved to Tallahassee I have gotten so many comments about how cute "she" is. So I felt like it was time. He had great curls, but the sides were definitely out of control to say the least. So she cut his "wings" and trimmed up the back. I think he looks so handsome and like a little boy now. I love it!
On Tuesday, Mom and I took Maddox to the Wild Animal Safari in Pine Mountain, Ga. I had not been since I was little and we knew it was something Maddox would love doing! He had such a great time getting up close and personal with the animals. He LOVES naming animals and making their noises so it was perfect for him! We drove one of their cars through and the animals were literally sticking their heads through the window trying to get to the food. We had a blast and can not wait to go back sometime! The pictures are in reverse order, but you get the idea...
On Saturday Daniel's younger brother, Brandon, got married. It was probably the most beautiful wedding I have ever been to and the weather could not have been better! It was so nice to get to see all of Daniel's family since we had not seen most of them since May! I did not take many pictures myself since I was a part of the wedding so some of these are "stolen" from other people. The day was so perfect and they are having a blast in St. Lucia now. I wish them the very best and know they will experience a lifetime of happiness!
Several posts back, I mentioned that I was waiting on my fabric to come in for the little boy quilt that I wanted to make. Well, I tend to be an impatient person and when I decide I want to do something, I want to do it right then. So I went to the fabric store and bought some fabric to make our little girl's quilt in the meantime. It does not match her bedding, but I plan to use it as more of a playmat anyway. Here is the finished product:
Hers is made from several Amy Butler prints and I can't wait for her to use it!! A couple of days later, the other fabric came in and I got to work on the boy quilt. I have to say I LOVE the prints in this one and it is probably my favorite of the two:
I am so glad that so many of my friends are having babies in the near future b/c these are pretty fun to make! Happy Saturday!!
Daniel and I got married on November 22, 2008 and we are having a blast enjoying married life! We moved to Tallahassee, FL in August 2011 where Daniel works for a bridge engineering company and I am a stay-at-home-mom. We are blessed to have 3 children. Our son, Maddox, was born March 23, 2010. Our first daughter, Maclain, was born November 25, 2011, and our second daughter, Miller, was born October 4, 2013. We are super busy keeping up with life, but we wouldn't have it any other way!
