Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there. Kaylee and Spencer have the best Dad in the whole world. Kaylee always says"I love Daddy soooo much!" She thinks he is pretty great. She wanted to give him her Father's Day gift early so I let her. When Eric opened it she grabbed the coffee mug that her and Spencer had made so proudly for her Daddy to see, then she gave Eric a hug and told him Happy Father's Day like she was 10 years old and she truly knew what it meant. Spencer is also crazy about Eric. He can cry for me all day but as soon as Eric walks through door he starts smiling at his Daddy. They learn so early who the fun one is! I am very lucky because my husband helps me all the time with our kids and he takes care of them for me when I need a break sometimes without me even asking. He loves them with his whole heart and teaches them lots of things I can not or that I forget is important. Happy Father's Day Eric. We love you!

Big Weekend

It was a big weekend at the Grandparents. Spencer got the see Great Grandma Edith for the first time and she thought he was wonderful. Everyone had a great time and we were wore out when we got home on Sunday. We had a picnic at Pappy and Grammy's Farm and Kaylee had a big time, but she wanted to know where the pigs were. She planted pumpkins with Papa Flowers and flowers with Gramma. Uncle Andy and Aunt Erin were in and everyone was glad to see them. Kaylee played with Cousin Maddie on Friday and both kids had a ball with each other. It will only be a matter of time before Spencer will be wanting to play with the girls and hopefully they will be nice and not gang up on him. Grandma Martin's friend, George, had a mini-stroke on Saturday and had to be put in the Intensive Care Unit at TCMH. He is very a very special friend to Nana so if everyone could remember them in their prayers this week.
I know this is short, but the kids are calling. Have a good week and God Bless. Enjoy the pics.

9 weeks old.....

Spencer has had some milestones in the last week. He has been to the doctor for 5 shots and he cried only while getting pricked. He weighed 10.14 pounds and was 22 3/4 inches tall. That is the 25% for weight and 50% for height. He is really looking us over so I know he can see us good because he just stares. He is smiling and doing some baby talk. He started sleeping in his own bed from 10:00 till 6:00 and that is really good for Eric and I. Big sister was having trouble sleeping in her own bed but she finally worked that out on her own. She is now going to bed on her own and staying there all night. Things are good in the Maxwell house at nighttime. Today was also baby dedication at church and Spencer was dedicated to our Lord by Brother Jim Flora. It was a special time for our whole family and he received his first little Bible with his name on it. Kaylee has her Bible and she now carries to church every Sunday. Pray for Eric and I that we can raise Spencer and Kaylee to love our God and to teach them what is really important in life. That is hard when sometimes we have trouble remembering what is important, because it is easy to get caught up in this world. Today I asked Kaylee if she knew what Jesus did for us and she said "died on the cross" it toke my breath away that my 3 year old little girl knew that. I know we are doing something right. Everyone have a wonderful week I know we will. This weekend coming up will be fun. The kids and I are heading to Houston on Thursday and Erin and Andy are picking Eric up on Friday night on their way through Springfield. We are going to have fun with all the grandparents and Uncles and Aunts for 4 days. Good night.
