Happy First Birthday Maddox!

 A year ago today Jared and I left for the hospital to meet our second son.  My Mom snapped this picture (somehow I smiled during contractions) and just two hours after this picture was taken we held our baby.

And today our little baby turns one!
His first year seems to have flown by.  I feel incredibly lucky to be his Mommy.  He is a perfect combination of feisty and sweet.  He is strong willed and puts up a fight until he gets his way but yet he can be very sensitive and snugly.  He has been obsessed with Carson since he was born and has done a great job keeping up with him too.  He likes dogs and makes a cute little "motor" sound when he pushes cars around.  He could eat a whole container of raspberries in one sitting.  He also crawled like a baby ape-the most adorably funny thing I've seen.  He is a Mamas boy and would love me to carry him around all day.  He will also be our wrestler and that is what him and Dad do best.  I love him so much and I can't believe that his first year is already over. 

Today we went to the park and had lunch with friends at Chipotle.  My kids love Chipotle and scarfed their quesadilla, rice and beans down (cupcakes too, of course).  Jared picked up Zpizza on his way home (another favorite).  I made Maddox his own little "smash" cake.  He was very funny and didn't know what to do with it at first.  He kept saying "na"  and grunting because I'm pretty sure he thought we were going to tell him "no."  Once he had the courage to taste what we had laid in front of him he dug right in.

Happy Birthday sweet baby!  We love you to the moon and back.
