Maddox turned 4 last month on June 25th and if you’ve been following me for any time at all, you know I write a letter to my kids on their birthdays (and throughout the first year of their life). I hope they’ll cherish these letters one day. We celebrated his birthday with another party at the splash pad. I love these parties as they’re free
Dear Maddox, You just turned 2 and if I had to describe you in one word it would be HAPPY. You always have a smile on your face and find joy in such small things. You are a cuddly, sweet, silly dude.

Dear Maddox, You just turned 15 months old and this age really has been awesome! You are the biggest snuggler and a total mama’s boy!

Dear Maddox, Not too much has changed this month, but there are a few things. You don’t sit still for me to rock you anymore. You are always on the go. You started this month off sick with a cold and also got a stomach bug a week after that. I’m pretty sure you’ve been sick once a month since you were 3 months old.
Dear Maddox, This was a big month for you! You started crawling and are everywhere now. You come up to my legs for me to pick you up, jabber more, and do this funny flexing thing when you’re playing around with us! Also your eyes are very similar to Beckham’s at this age (a little bluer), but they’re turning brown (maybe hazel). And you have
