The one with the 5 month birthday!

Believe it or not, our little man is 5 months old today! I have so many fun pics to put on here, (I'm so behind), but I wanted to do this one now. We have took Maddox's picture every month on his birthday on the couch with the same bear...we straight up stole this idea from the Hatcher's (Thanks!! :) The bear is sentimental for me because it was my grandmother's...she slept with it every night! :) Anyway...just thought you might like to see the progression! More pics to come later!

This one is on his actual "birth"day! (not with the bear)

One Month (after a long hard day!)


Two Months


Three Months


Four Months


Five Months (I love the crossed feet!!)


Until next time...

The one with the Samford slaughter...

Well Faulkner opened it's season with a 62-0 loss to Samford University. As heartbreaking as the game was, we had a wonderful time!! Izzy and Adam decided to do the weekly tailgating ritual, so they headed to Birmingham around 10am (about 2 hours later than planned). Lindsey and I headed out about 10:30 to take Maddox to my parents house...the first time I left him for this long!!! I teared up a little, but got better! :) We had to stop for gas, and the gas station attendant didn't know ANYTHING about how to help me when the pump wouldn't go!!! He finally said just try another pump, and so we wen't to another station all together!! We got some gas and then were called by Izzy and told to get a power strip (#1 forgot item), and then got a little lecture about how late it was and the fact we were still in Montgomery. Thank you Lindsey for taking this call! :) We went to Wal-Mart, got the strip, and were on our way. When we got to Birmingham, we realized we needed a can opener to open the baked beans! (#2 forgot item) All was good until I started making the rotel dip and discovered I had forgotten the rotel cans at home!! (#3 forgot item) Big Thanks to Taylor, Neil, and Ashley for getting these items for us! After all that, the meal was on! We had a crowd all day, and had a blast. It feels like work to get all this together, but it is so much fun in the end! We can't wait until Huntingdon!!! Go Eagles! A few pics to share...

A small shot of the admissions/alumni tent with free drinks and chips...hey Joey! :)
A shot of our tents and the crazy people who wouldn't get out of the know, we were threatned to have the police called on us because we were in the "road" of the parking lot!! :) Those Faulkner people are so rowdy!!
Some more views of our tents

Ashley being a ham...

David Hilyer and the boys playing the football in the "restricted road"!! :)
(it's always the president's kids you have to worry about! :)

Izzy was so excited when he saw it, that he jerked the camera when he took the NER lost to Samford!

Izzy and I at Loco's after the game

Lindsey and I at Loco's after the game...we were tired!!!

Until next time....

The one with Gustav... another beach trip, and another hurricane! I don't know what it is about us and the weather! We went this time with Izzy's parents to Destin, and we had a blast!

This is Maddox in his first "sink bath"! Mrs. Bobbie brought her fold up baby tub, but water kept coming out of the hinges, and he was just too big for it. We tried this, and apparently he likes it!

This is our footprints in the sand...guess how much greif I got from Izzy on this one! :) It did turn out cute though!

Here is our favorite restaurant in Destin!

He obviously like the float better this week!

And something was too funny!!

We may get to try the beach one more time this season...but believe me, we will check the weather (to make sure there IS a hurricane!! :) Until next time...

The one with Fay

So, we haven't been to the beach all summer...for some reason we had more things to do! :) My parents have a timeshare in Panama City Beach for this week every year. Maddox, Izzy, and I headed out Saturday morning around 9:30 despite the fact that Tropical Storm Fay was on its way directly to the pan handle of Florida. This was against ALL of Izzy's common sense, but for some reason I won out. It rained a little on us going down, but not too bad. Once we got there however, they had the double red flags up...NO getting in the beach! Also, the pool was closed because of the weather. We didn't understand this at all!! It is an indoor pool, but nevertheless, it was closed. I think that I failed to mention that it stopped raining, and the sun was beginning to shine!! We went to my brother's hotel and swam in their pool! It didn't rain again on us until Monday morning...after Izzy left! I did get to have a big I told you so and the weekend turned out to be so much fun! Here are a few pictures that we took of Big Mad! He did enjoy the pool, but not so much the float.

Here is a picture of Maddox and Izzy with the crab float...I think the problem with it was that Izzy kept saying that Maddox had crabs! He didn't like that!

Here he is tuckered out from swimming...we put him in his tent and he slept until we woke him to go upstairs...this is despite the indoor pool with all the kids screaming!! :)

Here is one of him sleeping with PawPaw...I promise he did more than just sleep, but this was SO cute!
and one with MawMaw...asleep again! :)

This one was so sweet of his feet in the sand

and one in the water...even though we weren't suppossed
to be in it...we are such rule breakers!!!

We are planning on going back this weekend with Izzy's parents...we now get to battle Gustav!!!! Two weekends in a row...Two hurricanes in a row!! I'll let you know how it all goes!
Until next time...

The one where we are trying again!!!

Well, here we go again! NOT trying for another baby...I just realized how that title sounded. I'm talking about the blog! I'm trying this one more time. I've got to get better, because I'm getting fussed at on every end to keep this blog up to date. I was tired of looking at the boring colors, so with the help of Louise Jones, I found one I think I like! I'm getting tutored on how to post everything...I just get bummed looking at everyone's great looking site!

With all that said, I want to start off trying to post some pictures of Maddox. For some great ones from our wonderful friend and photographer, Lindsey Bagwell, check out her page. Also, don't forget to check out her website (the address is on her blog).

Here is a couple of pictures of Maddox...we hope! :)

Yay...we did it! This is one of his great onesie that I got at Ross for $3.50! I was so pumped!

OK...I like this layout better! This is one in his overalls ready to help PawPaw in the country! :)

and now, I like the small size better! :) This is him ready for church!

Being a Mom is the most wonderful thing in the world!!!! I'm going to go now, but I PROMISE I'll get on again soon to update...with more pictures!!

That's all for now, hope all is well with you!!! Until next time...
