SOMEBODY has decided to grow again. Yes, I know, he cannot stay a baby forever, but this is just crazy...
Madden has significantly long feet. This becomes a problem with those super cute  Footsie PJ's! So we bought some new PJ's for him yesterday that were size 9 months, in hopes that he would grow into them. Well...they fit perfectly!!!! AHHH!!!!
I'm not completely out of my mind yet, because he still wears his 3-6 month and 6 mo. onesies and outfits...but when I put his PJ's on last night, I think my heart stopped momentarily. My baby is getting so big!
On that note: a new/bigger car seat is in our near future. I have been researching different ones and can't decide which to get??? We have a britax one, given to us by my aunt; however, we are going to need another one as well, and I don't plan on splurging for another britax. So any of you readers with experience in this category, help a new mommy out! K?
I am also about to be in BIG TROUBLE with our little man...he is on the verge of crawling!!!! He gets up on all fours and rocks back and forth! It won't be long till he figures it all out  :O
(I will try to post some pics later when I have some time)
That's our quick little peek into the lives of the Parkers. Happy Holloween!!! Pin It

As with most people, well, probably everyone, I need some inspiration to blog. I know, I know, I have the ultimate motivator--Madden. I should be able to write everyday, five times a day, with the material this kid gives me. So why do I only blog once every 2 weeks or so (if I'm lucky)???
Excuse #1: Time! He consumes my day, everyday! So I don't always have time to sit down and write.
But now he is going to sleep at roughly the same time every night, so why don't I do it at night???
Excuse #2: Exhaustion. By the end of day, I am so tired, often times smelling of spit-up, and the last thing I want to do is type.
And lastly,
Excuse #3 for not blogging often enough: I actually think I may have TOO much to talk about!!! I sometimes have so much to say about so many things that happen in our fun little life, that I can't just pin one thing down! And then everything I want to say seems to jumble up and ends up not making sense at all! I know....Tragic.

I could say that I will try to write more often....ha, I also told myself I was going to start waking up to run in the mornings, and well lets face it...that hasn't happened yet!  : /
Therefore, no promises. The stories will come whenever they wiggle themselves from my brain and make their way to my fingers and this computer! Till then, here's some pics of Mr. Madden!

P.S. You can thank for my inspiration to write tonight! I'm diggin' the new background!

Happy 5 MONTHS Madden!

WOW! 5 months already! So many things to say, where to start???
First off...I think Madden may be ones of those super strong babies...have you heard of them? He is ridiculously strong! His arms even have muscular definition! I'm thinking some kind of athlete for sure!!!

Other notable facts:
- this boy LOVES to laugh...(see video), he thinks mommy and daddy are hilarious...grandaddy is pretty funny too sometimes!
- he is a serious flirt
- we started a new sleep routine and (please don't jinx it) it is great!
- he has two indestructible books, and cannot get enough of them...good thing they are "indestructible"!
- wearing size 2 diapers
- 3-6 months clothes
- no longer nursing...we made it almost 5 months!
- He LOVES his oatmeal and bananas! Other foods we have tried and enjoy: peaches, squash, carrots, and plums. Food we have yet to try that is in the pantry: sweet potatoes, applesauce, pears, and green beans! Other moms beware: first time with bananas- don't be alarmed if you see what looks like your child ate some yarn, in the diaper! Also, carrots look the same--both ends! :)

While we are on the diaper subject- this technically could be entirely new post, but seeing as I dont blog everyday or even every week, I'll make it short :) Anyway, I never thought I would get as excited about a poopie diaper, as I do! Ever since Madden had his bout with constipation, {by the way--horrible, horrible thing for your baby to go through :(  } I get overwhelmed with joy at his poopoo pants! Madden also finds great joy in doing #2!
On to bigger and better things and I'm sure what you have all been waiting for:

face plant!
