Favorite pics of the last few weeks...

So I haven't done a new post in a while and I just wanted to share some of my favorite pics of the last couple of weeks.

We went to sycamore creek to ride the 'wad' (as Madden calls it). It is so nice to get out of the
city for a while. Madden loves going for rides and playing in the creek. I just loves these pics of him and his daddy:
We spent a few days up in Heber this last week. Aside from both me and Madden getting sick... it was a fun trip! Big thanks to my Aunt Tiff for helping (well pretty much doing), the rag quilt for Madden's new bed. I'll be sure to post pictures when I get Madden's room done. Anyway... here is a pic of Madden holding his cousin Rudger (Ben and Tara's new baby) and a pic of him with his pal Brody (I'm SO glad I got to see Taralee for a little while!)

Also while in Heber... we bought Madden some 'big boy' underwear. We are going to attempt to potty train here in a couple of weeks. Any tips on potty training boys is greatly appreciated! Madden looks so cute in big boy underwear!We went to Uncle Garrett and Aunt Amy's for a Sunday dinner. Madden and Porter had fun playing and David even held little Preston for a while. I wonder if David is ready for a little baby again. David let Madden keep my shoes on just long enough for me to take a picture. The kid is pretty good at walking in high heels!I just love my cute little man! I can't believe he is almost 2!

Looks like you have had fun visiting people all week. Good Luck on the Potty Training! I decided to wait till I have the baby I think cause I am afraid he will do great now and then when I have the baby for some desperate attempt for my attention act out and back track haha (I had a cousin do this when he got replaced by a new baby in the house) So good luck with that! :) After I get moved this week we need to get together next week or something.

Cute pictures.. My advice on potty training is stick with it.. Make sure you and madden are ready and don't cut corners.. Savannah was easy so I am lucky . I am sure he will do great I can't believe he is almost 2, he's so cute.

Cute pictures! I love the very first one. I wish I had advice on potty training boys....but not here only little girls. Mine were pretty easy. I did the reward system were I had a jar of candy like skittles and they got a piece if they went. It worked good for us. Good luck.

Hey Amanda!
Potty training boys is just oodles of fun! he he I always let my boys be naked because they'd pee if they had anything on. I like how Maddeb calls the quad a "wad"... Aidan would always call it a tod. You have such a beautiful family!!

Cute pictures... Madden is getting so big, can't wait to see what the new little guy looks like :) Advice on potty training?? Hmm... I would have to agree with stick with it, even if it gets frustrating, they get it eventually. Also, I had a jar of M&Ms for Deagan, he would get one for #1 and two for #2... haha. I don't know if that is the best idea but it worked with him. Anyway good luck :)
