Maddux on the move!

My baby boy rolled over for the first time yesterday! I put him down on his tummy for his nap time and when I went to get him up he was on his back. I don't know how he did it, I don't think Brooke rolled over until she was around 4 months. I guess this means no more unattended naps on the couch for him. In other news Brooke is putting everyone on punishment. She spent 10 minutes trying to get Jessie to sit in time out, when she realized that wasn't going to happen she put her favorite stuffed animal Joey on the time out chair. It was funny because she would be playing with him and all of a sudden she would say "No No Joey" and run over to the time out chair, turn her back on him for a few seconds, then pick him up and give him a big hug. I think he went to time out 4 times yesterday evening. I worried at first because she took him over there so many times but at least she gave him a hug when he got up. She also brought my cell phone to me and asked to talk to daddy, so I dialed his number and she talked to him for a few minutes and then he had to get back to work. Both of my babies are growing so fast, Brooke will officially be 18 months in 6 days! Makes you stop and enjoy it while you have them this way. I wouldn't trade staying home with them for any money in the world.

Aha, so you use a time out chair! You know she will tell everything about how she is disciplined. Just like the little girl who corrected me in front of group people when I said the bottom was for swatting. I seem to remember she told that she had been popped in the mouth with a wooden spoon. She failed to mention that she was being very mouthy, that it happened one time and that I apologized later!

Enjoy your time with your little ones. Before you know it they are in school, getting married and having babies of their own. :)

They do grow up so fast!

Klham, Thanks for following my blog. I love reading your blog. My wife and I have a 5 year old boy, raisng them in China is such a joy and a huge challenge as well. I do a lot of work in my studio at home, so I'm fortunate to spend more time than most Dad's, well, that is when I'm not traveling. I gotta get my wife to check out your blog too...all the best!
