Stephen practices for the Olympics in 2024

two loves - race cars and chairs....



Stephen seems to love cars - escpecially race cars! After watching one Formula 1 race with Alan he has been in love with cars, he immediatly learned how to make the sound of a car, and loves watching the movie Cars. Now this has been a pattern for a while, and in the last few months has begun sitting in chairs - so what happens when you combine the two????


You get an awesome race car chair and one happy boy!

Another reunion! Fun times at the beach, and other stuff






Long time no post......again! A quick catch up on the on goings of the Maddox family - Stephen, my mom, and I spent the 4th of July weekend in Darien GA for our annual Anderson family reunion. It was HOT, but wonderful. Most of the cousins I know and my mother knows the most stay in the same hotel, so most of the catching up happens at the pool or in the lobby over coffee......or wine. Stephen had so much fun hanging out with some cousins his own size and age. My cousins from St. Louis were there and then headed down to the beach near us for a week. We love their visits and the chance to hang out with them, though to most of the world your third and fourth cousins wouldn't even cross your mind, but we spent most of our childhood and now adult life with the Rhodes so their just cousins to us! :)
Now in the picture's above we were all out walking on the beach yesterday right after a nasty storm.... should have known better....as Stephen was standing in the surf Alan noticed as a wave came up on him that a jelly fish wrapped around his little ankle. He cried and screamed, Alan ran to a grocery store to get some meat tenderizer, and when he got back Stephen had fallen asleep on me in the condo. His little ankle looked like it hurt so bad, so we packed up and called it a day. :( I have to say, I don't think I've ever gotten a sting as bad as that one.... But he toughed it out!
Thanks for all the prayers, please pray for two of my friends who just had their second child each! Baby Catherine Ann http://www.kuetemeyer.blogspot.com/ and Baby Ethan http://www.matt-n-julie.blogspot.com/

Guess who's going to be a big brother??

That's right, by the Grace of God we are pregnant! What a joyful time for the Maddox family, God is so wonderful and we are so blessed!! Please keep us in your prayers! We just found out last Friday, so our guessed due date (from one of those due date calculators online) is March 8th!! We will keep you all posted on all the fun events and everything as the pregnancy moves forward. As for me, I'm doing great - the normal stuff, tired, nauseous, hungry :) Stephen keeps me on my toes so it keeps my mind off how I feel which is really nice, and I don't want to get sick in front of him so I'm trying to be strong and keep mind over matter! :)
Here are some fun pictures of Stephen from today actually. It's a normal hot summer day here, so I thought it would be fun to build a fort inside, then I thought - "what am I going to build a fort out of?" So why not put up one of our tents? Stephen's having fun, and the smell of an old camp fire warms my heart! I think the last time this tent was used was by Alan when we were dating and we went up the the Rocky Mountains for the 4th of July weekend with some of my friends! Isn't it funny how smells remind us of so much!
