When is Dad Coming Home?

"Jensyn, where is Jack?"

"He's in his room."

"What's he doing in his room, he's being so quiet. Will you go check for me?"

(pitter-patter of Jensyn's feet quickly making way to and from Jack's room)

"He said he's waiting for daddy to come home."

I went to check for myself, and this is what I saw.

Sweet little kid. And sweet John who works so hard. We miss you this spring John, but thanks.

Madden is half.

I've been so busy today, but I never forgot to keep telling Madden that he is now half. (You know, like 1 and a half?--he's just half.) Whenever I said that to him, he just looked at me and laughed. It's true. Mr. Madden is now 6 months old.He is the sweetest baby on the planet. I thought that Loganwas easy, and she was, but this boy has taken the place of being the easiest baby! He takes several naps a day, but he requires his crib. The minute that he lays in it, he's asleep-and asleep for several hours.He sleeps at night from 8:30-ish to 9:00-ish each morning (and so do I, but don't tell John!) I couldn't ask for a better little guy for our last baby! I am loving each minute I have him. I am wondering if his eyes will be brown because almost daily, I see a new color in them. Can't we just have one chocolate chip eyed baby? I haven't taken Mads in for his 6 month check yet, but it does seem that he has mastered all of his 6 month milestones. The kids adore him and take him to explore. Lately, he loves being outside. He loves watching the kids play outside, even if they just leave him in the stroller and ignore him. Boy, is he a chunk though! When he was born, he was so skinny. That skin--has turned into rolls! He has chubby cheeks, legs, and wrists. I wouldn't have him any other way!

Madden, I certainly love you so much and we love having you in our family. You have completed us! I am so happy that you are half now, but I'm just not going to let you get any older-so sorry about that.
