Maylee's Pigtails

So I have not known what to do with Maylee's hair! Its long and wispy, straight in front and curly in back. So we tried pigtails....doesn't she look old!

Madden's first bath

So we were thinking that he would just love his batheys as Maylee did! He didn't, I think it was because his whole body wasn't totally submerged. So it was a quick one, and he even curled his bottom lip as he cried... so sad, but don't you just want to kiss that!

Christmas Day

We had a great Christmas spending it with lots of family! We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year!

Maylee Meets Santa

Madden James Epperson

Madden James Epperson made his big arrival on Thursday December 15th at 4:50 pm. He weighed in at 7 lbs 8 oz. and measured 19 1/2" long! He has his dads long fingers, arms and toes, moms button nose, and has a STRONG resemblance to Maylee when she was born! We couldn't be more excited and happy to have such a beautiful healthy baby boy added to our now family of FOUR. More pictures to come.... I promise!

Maylees First Birthday

I can't believe that she is already one!! This year has gone by unbelievably fast, and we are happy each and every day we are blessed to have her in our lives! She is such a special girl, and keeps us laughing each and every day with her funny personality and amazing quirks...
Some of ours and your favorite things:
-You dance to jimmy beat boxing, and any music you hear.
-"Let me see your teefies (teeth)", and you will show us all of your 12 teeth!
-As much as we want you too, you will not walk for us. We try and you tuck your legs up into your belly and whine.....
- You LOVE your batheys time. Whenever we say batheys you will start pulling on your clothes to take off your clothes.
-You LOVE your TWO blankeys. Not just one now TWO!
-When we ask you your age, you will hold up a one on both fingers and give us a big grinner and clap.
-You love fruit, and candy, just like your mommy and will find it ANYWHERE!
We LOVE you so much, and are so Thankful each day you are in our lives! Happy First Birthday!

Test Post!

I know its been a while since I have posted, but it seems like this summer flew with all of the business of life, home projects, trips, and getting ready for our baby boy to come. So when I got on to post, it wouldn't let me anymore. Thanks to some help, we were able finally able to figure it out. So hopefully you don't mind the jumbled, random, catch up posts. Until I sort through all of my pictures, enjoy this cute one that I took of Maylees cute figure!

Times like this...

I can't belive how much I love this girl to think that this is funny! Maylee is growing so fast, she is almost 8 months, going on to the terrible two's. She wants to eat on her own and with her own spoon {doesn't that seem early}! If I don't give her the spoon she will shake her head back and forth and then grab the spoon until the food flings across the floor. Its a good thing she makes us smile and laugh more and more each and every day because it was not the easiest to clean up that spaghetti-o type baby food, YUCK! I have a feeling there will be MANY more times like this!

So I have been so bad at blogging lately...not sure why, just have been, and even worse at taking pictures. But Andrea inspired me with her cute post, to share the fun time we had in Wyoming with Jordan and Ash and Austin and Anj. Of course we decided to do an impromptu photo shoot ... and I thought that the pictures turned out great, the flowers were gorgeous and Maylee was grinning (which is few and far between)! Anj took quite a bit more, but here are a couple that I took!

Baby #2

Yes as many of you do, and many don't know we are expecting another baby December 21. We are so excited (and a bit overwhelmed) but feel so blessed! We can not wait....well I am sure Maylee can, they will be 12, almost 13 months apart. It will be a handful for the first couple of years but after that, I am sure Maylee and baby #2 will be the best of friends. I always wanted my kids close together, and didn't relize it would come true and happen THAT fast!!!! So here we go again!

One night of Camping

Campfire at night! We roasted s'mores!

Whew, we made it through. It was so much fun enjoying family. Jimmy and I had NEVER camped since we were married. ... and we took it on with Maylee. Of course she was a perfect angel....I on the other hand in the middle of the night thought "she" was too cold in the tent and we moved both her and I into the back of the car (I was cold too and there were coyotes and a pack of wolves licking there chops outside our tent). But beside the scary night and a day without a shower, It was a lot of fun...

Easter Sunday

I have a lot more pictures to post but haven't had the time. We went to my parents, and had the ultimate easer egg hunt... I found $38 and jimmy found $12, but he did find more candy ha. Then we headed over to our Aunt Cathys to have another easter dinner and it was great to see all of our family. Here are a couple of pictures that I took right before Maylee was going to bed on easter day. She is starting to try and sit up, she plays with her feet all day long, smacks her lips, pushes her body off yours while cuddling to see you, gets so excited when I make a bottle and tries to suck the side when I am holding it, and my favorite gives me eskimo kisses (i'll try to upload the video). But since I don't have the time today, here is a quick little update of our soooo big 5 month old!

So we watched Andy and Jeni's Kids this last week which was crazy and fun with 6. I took some pictures with Izzy and Addie and there were soo many cute ones! Aren't they both so pretty! I just love those girls!

Not quite ready

So we wanted to see what Maylee did when she tried some rice cerial...She didn't do much... and didn't know what to think, but gave us a couple of smiles. So we will wait to eat solids again.

I tried another photo session with Maylee to practice and here is what I came up with! Thanks Andrea for your tips! It helped having such a cute subject too!

Big Belly

So Jimmy and I the other day were in our front room and we looked over to see this. Obviously, I neglected to put a onsie on her and found out the reason for cover the baby belly! ha It was so stinking cute!

St George

Maylee turned 3 months a couple of weeks ago! I can't believe time has gone that quick. We are loveing every second with her. I'm a little bit late but wanted to post on our trip to St george with my parents. It ended up being a lot of "firsts" for Maylee! First Vaca, first time hikeing, first time swimming, first time rolling over. We just love watching her grow!

Happy Valentines Day

I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this valentines day! It was sweet & simple, with my two greatest loves!! Feburary has always had a special place in my heart becuase Jimmy and I met on Valentines day, at a Valentines day party, and I got pregnant with Maylee a couple days after valentines day 4 v-days later. So this year I had so much love for my new little family! This year, I wasn't ready to go without my baby girl yet, so Jimmy, Maymay and I all went to try a new resturant. Jimmy looked so handsome, and Maymay was absolutly adorable. There was nothing better than spending Valentines day with the both of them. I couldn't have been any happier! I hope you all had a wonderful and loved valentines day too!

Look who stopped by for a visit!!

Of course I lost my phone so no one can get ahold of me right now.. . . .So yesterday, I pulled up to my house with a van in the driveway wondering who could it be. Jimmy opened the door holding two babies!! I was so excited to see Kate and her triplets came all the way from farmington for a visit, and Derek joined us later for dinner! It was such a fun suprise to have them there and see all the cute babies together! She is an amazing mother, and they are all so stinking cute!! It was fun finally having them in our home! Just a side note- they are 5 months now and Maylee is only 10 weeks (She is one chubby baby! ha).
