Paxton, Karleigh, Mackey, and Fisher
Our new babysitter

What's Going on...

Rusty: He is in town and has been all month...yeah! He has been working hard during the day and coming home and being dad. The yard has been keeping him pretty busy lately. Baseball season was pretty much rained out every Thursday so that was sad for him since that was his fun each week. I am sure that his skills have not left him though, the pitching arm is warmed up and ready to play...Give him call!

Whitney: I have been busy watching kiddos. I had the chance to go to market with the Hagen family and shopping has never overwhelmed me...but I WAS OVERWHELMED! It was crazy, 1st you realize that everything you buy is half of what you normally pay and 2nd How in the world could you ever possibly see everything in 4 days. I have been asked to work in the nursery on Sundays because Paxton is considered in nursing terms a 1 on 1. What can I do?? He cries the entire two hours requiring one sweet older lady to spend her whole time with my child and his tears. Rusty and I have planted some new flowers in the beds out front so that will be so much fun to watch Rusty's labor come to fruition.

Paxton: Other than crying in the nursery every Sunday, he is REALLY into transportation. We were unable to have a car birthday party because Paxton is borderline psycho about cars, trains, and planes. We would have never moved past the car party napkins. He has begun to say lots of funny things and is still VERY busy. He doesn't know yet but he was enrolled in Mother's Day Out, starting in Sept. I cannot wait. I already checked and they do not refund your money and they will not give up on your child should they cry the entire first few months. We rarely give him Coke...I thought I would tell you a couple of his funny stories for the week. We went to Sonic and I asked him if he wanted Apple Juice or a Orange Slush and he said, "I want Coke." His vocabulary has increased TONS lately and it is so fun to see his personality with words. By the way he did not get coke!! We love our little Paxton but he keeps us very busy.

Mackey: Sweet Mackey. She is the winner for "Best Baby Award". Everyone comments about how great she is. She is scheduled to have tubes placed on July 5th so that is more ear infections for the Cox Family. She is so precious and her smile makes you laugh. She is 13lbs, yes still very little for 6 months, but can guzzle a bottle in no time flat. She is working on sitting and loves fruit. She is into Paxton's cars, which he is not happy about. We are now focusing on sharing and being nice to our sister. Mackey is so excited about Paxton going to Mother's Day Out for all the quality time she will be able to spend with her mom.

Life is crazy but we are loving it. We are love watching the new words that Paxton learns each day and also enjoying watching Mackey discover all the things that her feet and hands can do.

Rylie Joy was only 13.8 pounds at her 6 month check up a month ago. I still freak out when I see other "average" kids her age. They look so huge to me!

Well if she is guzzling a bottle, and not gaining I think we have an athlete on our hands!
