Embrace The Camera

This week Maddux has started wanting to share his food. Which is adorable... but not so adorable when he refuses to eat anything and just wants to try to feed you. This past week I have been offered soggy goldfish cracker, mushy bananas, and half chewed hot dogs.... yuuummmmm.

Our mornings are crazy. Jerry and I running around trying to get ready... Maddux chasing Nala.... throwing all of his books off his bookshelf..... running and screaming down the hall. And even though these mornings are crazy busy... its amazing how many small perfect moments there are in all of this craziness.

Maddux's crazy bed head when I go in to get him in the morning. The huge smile he gets... and then almost immediately... him calling out to... not mama... but "Nala!" "Nala!" --- which at this point I think Nala (who is not a morning dog) trys to bury herself in the covers to make herself invisible. Maddux running around smiling and laughing... wow I wish I had that much energy in the morning....
Sloppy goodbye kisses as I am off to work..... big bear hugs... and lots of smiles :)
..... these amazing little moments sure do make it hard to leave... missing out on all of those smiles all day...

We took a moment this morning to grab this photo.
