Adventures with Maddox


Yesterday I had the privilege of spending the day with my six-month-old grandson Maddox, and boy, did we have a busy day. But in and amongst diaper changes and bottles and lunch and naps and strolling, I managed to capture a few pictures.

Here is Maddox spending some quiet time on a quilt made by his great-grandmother. He looks so long stretched out like that ...

He loves to watch the ceiling fan ...

After we played with some of his toys for a while, he got fussy and since it was almost noon, I figured he was hungry.

We started out fine, with him taking a few bites of his peas, and pears and apple blueberry stuff, but he soon let me know that he wasn't fussing because he was hungry.

He was a sleepy baby, but he always has a smile for his Grandmama ...

I had barely gotten him all snuggled in his swaddling blanket before he was sound asleep ...

Now, I ask you — is that not an angel!
(And, of course, I'm not prejudiced or anything)

After his naptime, I fed him his lunch (he was ready for it then!) ... and then it was time for his big sister Avery Grace to come home from school.

It was such a pretty afternoon, we decided to go for a stroll ...

Lord, I thank you for these two perfect little grandchildren ...

After our stroll, Maddox, with Avery's help, practiced learning how to sit up ...

He's kind of wobbly, but it won't be long before he masters it!


In this picture, he looks as if he's saying, "Help, GrandMama!"

I love the way he always checks out who's holding him ...

In his spare time, Maddox loves playing with his feet ...

I hope you enjoyed seeing these pictures from my day with Maddox, as much as I loved my day with him. He's changing so much now, and I don't want to miss anything!

Avery is growing up way too fast, too ... and I'm looking forward to her spending some time with us during her spring break from first grade.

Oh, that handsome guy! And I've always thought his smile was "Avery made over," as my Mammaw used to say.

What a grand day you must have had, and how fleeting these tiny moments. I'm so glad for you that you live close enough for a day-visit. We have only one that close, but the GA group has moved within six hours, instead of thirteen!

And FIRST GRADE! She'll growing up so fast---our girl starts three-day school next year.

love and, to you all,

rachel
