Jett 2 days old

Maddex 2 days old

Pretty crazy huh! Can you tell they are brothers?
Tyler was having fun with his new camera


How fun is it to be more excited than your son is that Santa came! I dont think I slept a single wink Christmas night just of pure excitement! I couldn't wait to see how Maddex reacted to the gifts Santa left for him! (Well that and I was up a bunch feeding Jett) Maddex got a big wheel bike, and a grow with me basketball hoop those were probably his favorite things! Jett got some bath toys and a small tonka truck! It was lots of fun! Then we went over to Tyler's parents for some good breakfast sweet rolls, his moms specialty on Christmas morning! We spent the day over there and were lazy, it was perfect! The cousins all played with their new tractors Jett slept really well, I even got to take a nap. Yep life is good!

Another exciting thing happend to us on December 9th (the day after Maddex's birthday) we welcomed Jett Neil Hone to our family! Once again I went in for a regular check up and my blood pressure was through the roof (preclampsia again) so they sent me straight over to the hospital and said "Looks like you will be having a baby tonight!" And I DID! Jett weighed 5lbs. 12 oz. and was 19.25 inches long. He was born at 10:31 that evening and all went really well, I will tell you what the second time is SO much easier! He is a really good baby, he eates really well and sleeps like an angel (thank goodness)! Maddex loves him and wants to hold him all the time, so far he hasn't gotten jealous and I am really glad. Well sometimes he gets a little jealous when Tyler holds him but that is to be expected I suppose.

So a lot has happend since the last posting and here is an update...
Maddex turned two and we had a very fun birthday weekend for him! We went to the "Elmo Makes Music" concert with our friends Dylan and Tracie Hatfield and their son Dawson who is 2 months older than Maddex, so that was a blast! Maddex and Dawson both were a little bit somber at first (I think it is because Elmo was life size) but after a few minutes they were both dancing, laughing and just having a good time! We did Maddex's birthday cake as an Elmo face this year, if you haven't noticed he is going through an Elmo phase right now. We celebrated his birthday at Granny and Papa's house with all the cousins, it was a lot of fun!

#1 This is all the kids enjoying the horse Grandma and Grandpa got Maddex!

#2 This is Maddex either trying to get on his bronco or trying really hard to not get bucked off?

#3 This is Mad finally able to enjoy his horse and believe me he LOVES this thing. He will sit on it and watch almost an entire movie! (unless he gets bucked off of course)

The kids were so good Baylee and Addie stayed back until I said they could help open the gifts and then they were a BIG help!
Since I am hopefully going to have a baby somtime this month I thought it best to not travel to far again after Thanksgiving, so we did a mini celebration of Maddex's 2nd birthday (which is actually not until the 8th) with this side of the family before we left. I wanted to thank my brothers and their wives for all the gifts and fun we had, and especially to my mom and dad! We love you all! Here are a few pics of the event!

Doing what Grandma does best, SPOIL her grandkids! So this is probably 9:00 at night and my beautiful mom is feeding Maddex snacks before he goes to bed! This one of the reasons Maddex LOVES coming to Grandma's house!

Maddex and Grandpa love to be outside together, they looked at the lawnmower, the neighbor's horses and just had fun.

We were with my side of the family for Thanksgiving this year it was really nice to see everyone and Maddex loves being there with Grandma and Grandpa! These are Maddex's cousins on the Poole side Baylee is 3 Addison is 18 months and Dax just turned uno! They are lots of fun and play really well with each other!
