is my new best friend!  I have used a bunch of different photo editing programs, but Picnik is one of my favorites.  Did I mention it’s free?!  You can pay a few bucks each month for some premium options, but the free version is fine for my needs.  I have been playing around with some photos tonight and decided to make a few collages of my little munchkin.  Maddox is growing so fast, and I want to capture every moment of it! 

Also, I haven’t had much time lately to catch up on my blog readings, but I plan on doing that this weekend.  I am not ignoring you.  I promise.  :)

3 Months

Blog 18 

Wow!  How has another month gone by in the blink of an eye?  So, what have you been up to?

  • You went to doctor a few weeks ago and weighed 12 lbs. 5 oz and were 23.5 inches long.  I am pretty sure you weigh over 13 lbs. now.  Your legs have grown a few inches in the past month alone! 
  • You are in Size 2 diapers. 
  • You wear 3-6 months shirts/onesies but 0-3 months pants.  You wear a size 2 shoe.  You have big feet like your daddy. 
  • You eat 5-6 oz. formula every 3-4 hours during the day.  You still sleep during the night.  You have been since you were 6 weeks old.  You usually go to bed around 9 pm and sleep until 7 am.  Mommy loves you for this!
  • You still love your swing and play mat.  You take most of your naps during the day in your swing.  You can sleep for hours in your swing.  You like to scoot around your play mat.  You still have not rolled over, but I think it will be any day now.
  • You have recently found your hands.  About 75% of your pictures show your hands near or in your mouth. 
  • You started laughing and talking, and it is the sweetest sound.  You become a chatterbox around 7 p.m.  We talk to you and you “talk” back! 
  • You love your daddy!  I think your favorite time of day is when daddy gets home from work and plays with you.  This is generally when you start “talking”.

Maddox, once again, this has been the best month!  We love watching you experience and learn new things.  You bring such joy to our lives, and we thank God for you every day!   We love you munchkin! :)

Lil’ Saints Fan

Wade and I have always enjoyed going to football games.  High School. College. Professional.  We have been to quite a few Saints games, and it is always an experience like no other.  Since winning the Super Bowl (Geaux Saints!!!), the crowd does a pre-game chant of “Who Dat Say They Gone Beat Dem Saints…”.  It is pretty awesome!  Besides paying $30 for parking, we had a great time!  My parents kept Maddox Saturday night, and this was our first night apart.  The entire 4 hour drive (well, ride for me) consisted of looking at his pics/videos on my Droid.  I missed this guy more than anything.  I did okay for the most part, but every little boy I saw made me want to burst into tears.  Don’t get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed a night out with the hubs, but a piece of my heart was still back home!  :)

Fashion Friday

I am so glad Fall is here!  That means sweaters, leggings, boots and dark nail polish.  Can I get an Amen?!  I lost all my baby weight within the week after having Maddox, but that stubborn ole’ ugly pooch is still there.  I just ordered Zumba so we will see if it does any good.  I can now hide that darn thing with chunky sweaters and no one will think anything of it!  I mean, I did get some looks wearing a light sweater or wrap during summertime in 90+ degree temps.  Oh well! 

Here are a few of my faves…did I mention they are all under $75.00??!!
