We're Back

Well, Hello there! We are all doing well and are loving the warmer weather (when the wind isn't blowing 50 miles per hour...sheesh, that's just nasty). Since my last post, 3 out of the 4 of us encountered a nasty stomach bug that luckily only lasted 24 hours, but it sure hit us hard (luckily Maddox never caught it). We recouped from the nasty bug and the next week Maddox caught another awful upper respiratory infection that required 2-3 breathing treatments a day to keep the coughing under control. We celebrated Brad's 29th Birthday and we just returned from a nice trip to Oklahoma City to visit the Kalivoda family!

I have yet to post about Paxton's 11 month-day. I cannot believe that as of 3-20-11 our littlest man is 11 months old. Is it really possible that he will be a year old next month...sheesh, the little monkey is just growing up way to fast!

What are you up to these days Mr. Paxton?

Weight: 22 pounds
Wearing 12-18 month clothes
Size 4 diapers
Sleep: You usually take an hour nap in the morning around 10:30am and a 2 hour nap in the afternoon around 1pm. You are finally sleeping soundly through the night once again, now that you are feeling better.

You love to eat. We are trying to transition you from the bottle to a cup, but you are NOT a fan of a sippy cup. You are pretty lazy as far as wanting to hold a cup or bottle...you only want me to do it. HAHA!
You will eat mostly everything we feed you, and you prefer to eat anything off of our plate even though you only have 2 bottom teeth.

You are pulling up onto everything and love to climb on anything you can get your little body on, under or over. You are so proud of yourself when you are standing. I love that you are figuring out how to be more mobile because it certainly makes you happy, but I am in no hurry for you to be walking all over the place. You are going to keep me on my toes.

You LOVE LOVE LOVE your brother and you continue to think he is the funniest guy around. You love all of his toys and will play for hours in his room, perfectly content!

You are most certainly a momma's boy. I love it. You are so cuddily and love to be held by me. I am so thankful that the Lord listened to my little selfish prayers (we prayed most importantly that you'd be healthy, but I also prayed you would want to cuddle with me and have your daddy's blue eyes. Crazy how the Lord listens. I love that Maddox has my big brown eyes and Pax has blue eyes like Brad. I think it's so fun)

You have the sweetest giggle and smile that lights up an entire room. You are definitely not a people person though. It takes you a while to warm up to anyone new or someone you haven't seen for a few days. You act so bashful and duck your head down when someone talks to you. It's so funny.

You are the perfect fit to our family!!

(I promise my next post will have pictures, I just need to upload them)
