Fox, Katie & Nadine in 2015: Week 28

 Day 190
Our first Bunco Night was so much fun! Katie and I have been trying to get a Bunco group together forever and we finally made it happen! We can't wait for next month!

Day 191
 
Katie put Fox to bed that night and they had the sweetest conversation. He's a funny dude!

Day 192
 
We went to the Butterfly Wonderland with our friends from Tucson. Notice the little butterfly on his arm!

Day 193
 
A few of my friends came over and we sewed some teepees for the babies. This one is my friend Lindsi's teepee, I still have to finish Fox's.

Day 194
 
My friend Alison came over with her kids (Owen didn't want to be part of the picture! ;))

Day 195
 
Fox loves this teddy that my grandma made for him!

Day 196
Poor baby fell on his face and smacked his lip open. He was holding on so tightly to his bottle, even though he was fast asleep.

A Weekend with Friends!

Last weekend, my friend Julia visited us from Tucson with her two kids. We had so much fun!
After they arrived on Saturday, we headed to the Butterfly Wonderland. One of our three kids actually enjoyed the butterflies, one was only interested in climbing stairs (Mr. Fox) and the other was deathly afraid of the butterflies.

Aww! This melts my heart! Both of Julia's kids loved Fox, they were so incredibly sweet to him and I loved seeing them interact with each other.



Three babies in jammies, ready for bed! Funny story: Lexi wanted to take a bath with Fox, so I told her she needed to ask her mom if that's okay. She came back and told me her mom said yes, so I put her in the tub with Fox. One minute later, Julia comes in and asks what she's doing in the tub...lol. I got tricked by a 2-year old...haha.

The next day, we went to the train park.
Ready to ride the train!

Mr. Independent

They have a really cool (and free) train museum at the park and it's just awesome! Fox loved this little train and just ran back and forth on it, smiling from ear to ear.



My favorite picture of the weekend! ;)

Fox's Second 4th of July!

I know, I'm like two weeks late to the party, but this is how I roll these days! 

I love holidays and normally the 4th of July would be one of my favorite holidays. Katie always says I'm the most patriotic person she has ever met…haha. Unfortunately, the 4th of July is not very fun (for me anyways) when you live in Phoenix. It's just too freaking hot to do anything. Too hot to go to a parade, too hot to play outside and of course, Fox was too young this year to stay up for fireworks! 

So instead, we had Katie's family over for a BBQ and we played some games. It was fun, but I can't wait until Fox is old enough to watch fireworks with us (okay, I CAN wait, because I just want him to stay little forever! ;)).

Here are some of his 4th of July pictures that I took. 





This is the onesie we made with our Mom's Group a few weeks ago. It was a tiny bit too small on him…lol. 



His first sparkler…not impressed at all! 

After Fox went to bed, Katie and I had some fun playing with all the sparklers!


So, now that the 4th of July has passed, I guess it's time to bust out the pumpkins, right? Just kidding! Kind of…I can't wait! :)

Fox, Katie & Nadine in 2015: Week 27

 Day 183
Fox loves Frida, Matthias' sister! Every day, he would stand in front of her room waiting for her to come out and if she didn't, he would bang on the door! Not only that, but he would throw a huge fit when we would take him away from the door. Haha. His first love! 

Day 184
 
Dinner with Katie's mom. Going out to dinner with Fox becomes more and more of a challenge, maybe we'll try again when he's three! ;)

Day 185
 
Fox had his first tortilla chip and loved it! He also loves his aunt Ash!

Day 186
 
A boy and his dog!

Day 187
 
And another one...he is always so proud of himself when he pets Cosie!

Day 188
 
Playdate with his friend Matthew, these boys are trouble! 

Day 189
 Preparing for our first official Bunco Night at our house!

Fox, Katie & Nadine in 2015: Week 26

 Day 176
One of my favorite times each day. Fox is having his morning bottle and cuddles with me on the couch or in our bed! 

Day 177
 
What a great day it was! Marriage equality for all and most importantly, equal rights for our sweet baby boy!

Day 178
 
Family Day at the Aquarium!

Day 179
 
It was Grayson's 1st birthday party, but unfortunately, Fox wasn't able to come, because he was still napping, so I went childless! My friend Tiffany did the same, her daughter was napping as well and we enjoyed catching up without having to chase two crazy toddlers around! 

Day 180
 
Matthias' sister Frida is here visiting from Denmark for two weeks! Fox loves her and is totally smitten with her. He used to come running to me when I came home from work, now he could care less...! 

Day 181
 
Sweetest picture ever!

Day 182
 
 He is getting quite good at riding his 4-Wheeler, we just have to work on his steering! :)

Fox, Katie & Nadine in 2015: Week 25

Day 169
Fox helped us with a little 4th of July project. Getting his feet on the canvas was easy, but his hands were a whole different story! Oh well, we still love it and it will be up for many 4th of July's to come! 

Day 170
We met one of our friends at the Aquarium. That place is just awesome, the boys could run around while us moms were catching up! Fox always gets so excited when we're there!

Day 171
We went to Fox's friend Miranda's 1st Birthday party at Imagination Avenue. The place was a kid's dream come true, but unfortunately a mom's worst germy nightmare. A few of the kids in our group got sick afterwards, so we won't be going back. We had a fun time celebrating our friend though and Fox loved cruising around with his buddies Cameron and Jake in the Cozy Coupes. 

Day 172
This boy loves his stuffed animals. He always shares them with us too, so we can hug on them and kiss them, which makes him oh so happy! 

Day 173
My mom's birthday gift finally arrived in the mail and she sent me this picture! She was so happy about the blanket with all of Fox's weekly pictures.

Day 174
We explored a new splash pad in our neighborhood. 

Day 175
Fox loved this little kiddie pool in our backyard. Our co worker Joelle gave it to him for his birthday and he's obsessed!
