My Maddox Favs for June and July

We recently got back from an extended stay to Montana, where I grew up and my family still resides. I will post more about that later, but for now I will just say that Maddox absolutely adored my brother's dog, Alice. He would hear her nails clicking on the tile and turn his head and start giggling and laughing and looking for her and then got really excited whenever she was near enough for him to pet her. Mainly I think he wanted to eat her cuz several times I had to pry his head back from trying to bite her. Needless to say, she was not too fond of him...unless he had one of his biter biscuits he was chewing on. Then she would happily approach him and sneak his biscuit out of his hands. Of course, Maddox was just so happy to see her that he happily gave his biscuit away and belly laughed at the result. It was just too cute! This is my mom in the picture...Grandma Sneck. This in my mom's old walker that my sister, brother and I used when we grew up. After this picture, she finally threw it away. It was kind of sad to see it go, but before we threw it out, we got this cute picture of Maddox using it...for about a minute or so! He was way too big for it.
Just a cute smile!

Maddox loves spoons. Any spoon, any size. It will entertain him for hours at a time or stop him from being fussy. I think it is because he is teething and got his first tooth about a month ago. We are still waiting for others to pop through!
We have had family around for the past 1 1/2 months. During a trip to Indianapolis to visit Jeff's parents, we brought Maddox's mattress up there because he doesn't sleep well without his bed. We put it in their walk in closet and stacked water bottle cases around it...except this one side we overlooked. Here is how we found Maddox after one of his naps. He wasn't crying, but just grunting and protesting his uncomfortable-ness.
Our cutie in his swim shirt or muscle shirt with my cousin, Whitney. He had a bit of bead head.
Maddox's first bump on the head and pretty much is first "owey" (sp?). We were fishing at a lake in MT. Maddox was sitting playing in rocks and dirt and was going nuts having fun when he lost his balance and toppled forward onto his head. He cried a little, but mainly because he was really tired. What a trooper!
