Motherhood || Loosing My Baby To Fullblown Toddlerhood


I keep telling Jon I'm so happy to be having another baby because it seems like just recently I've lost my first baby to toddlerhood. Watching him grow into a full blown, energetic, independent, rambunctious toddler has brought such joy to my heart. Seriously, motherhood is God's greatest gift! But I am definitely trying to slow time down a bit and enjoy all the moments, big and small with him. I've been paying attention to all the little details that encompass who he is from the developments he's been making to the way he scrunches his nose when he's thinking hard about something.

He is incredibly tough to keep up with these days! Especially at 35 weeks pregnant. He is always running wherever he is going (he's like Forest Gump). And he doesn't sit still very often. This kid likes to stay busy and is always into something whether it be basketball, the playground or the only mud puddle in a 500 foot area - he's doing something almost all the time.

He's constantly changing and developing new, fun skills. He shows me his muscles, dances, tries to jump (his feet don't even leave the ground), shoots basketball like daddy, cleans up his spills with a towel (aka makes a bigger mess, but I love watching him "help"). He communicates now and tells me yes and no - mostly "no". And repeats all kinds of words on his own time of course, never on command. It's like having my own little bestie with me all day long except now he can semi talk to me and tell me what he wants.

Maddox has such a joyous personality and his smile melts my heart into a puddle of mush on the floor - he can instantly turn my day around with that sweet grin. He's so full of life and interested in everything around him.

This sweatshirt is too cute and a closet staple for your little one!

He has grown out of all of his clothing so we recently had to do a wardrobe overhaul for him.Y'all, I'm talking shirts, pants, shoes, pj's.... everything. I was getting so frustrated getting him dressed because each piece I would put on was either too short, too tight or wouldn't even go over his 90th percentile head :) Or maybe it was the curls preventing that :)

So we went ahead and got some Fall staple pieces while we were updating his wardrobe. Did you know Burt's Bees Baby has a clothing line!? I had no clue, but I'm glad I do now! I love Burt's Bees beauty/skin products to begin with so I was excited to see the new baby collection and I'm so impressed with the quality of the clothing. Plus all the pieces are incredibly stylish!

Burt's Bees Baby has some of the cutest most durable clothing I've seen. You can tell the difference in 100% organic cotton - the softness is out of this world! Perfect for snuggling my bug :) I can hardly resist their Fall collection it's just beyond adorable! I plan on getting baby girl a few items such as this sweet little outfit - I love the pattern!

Speaking of baby girl, I'm off to snuggle my boy some more and get all the one on one time I can because I can't stinking believe we will have another baby in 5 weeks or less! #mindblown

  4. How stinkin' cute is he in all these outfits?! You're going to have the two most stylish kids around!

  5. I need to get Bensen some fall clothing now that baby girl's wardrobe is taken care of! He's still fitting into 12 month things (he's a little guy), but all of his 12 month clothes are shorts and rompers and cute little summer outfits, since he turned 1 in April and it made sense that he'd only need those....

  6. Aw, he's such a cutie! And you'll love having this blog to look back on and remember his phases!
