15 Months

Mac had his 15 mo appt. today!  I can't believe how big he is getting!! His stats are as follows:
Weight: 22.42 lbs.-- 18%
Height: 31.75 in.-- 63 %
Head: 18.2 in.-- 21%
He is growing like a weed!  He can say mom, dad, wow, uh-oh, thank you, and it starting to try to say a lot of other words.  He is a busy body!  He never sits still!  We are so grateful for this sweet boy!! 


 We went sledding with the Nell family.  It was sooooo so cold!  We were freezing, but we still had lots of fun!  Mac loved playing in the snow!
 Matt tied Mac to a sled and pulled him around!
 He started to cry becuase he was cold.  But as soon as we got into the car he was so mad that we weren't letting him play!  Hopfully it will warm up so we can go again!

Christmas 2012

OK so, as always, I am way behind in my blogging.  But better late then never, I think! We had a wonderful Christmas!  We went to the Rhodes house the day before Christmas Eve and spent the night.  This is Maclain with his Grandpa McClain.
 I made Michelle and Clyde a blanket for Christmas!  

 Mac loved playing with all of the toys!  

 Mac and Brayden are only 3 mo. apart!  They had so much fun playing together!!
 All of us Rhodes...Well at least us Utah Rhodes.
 Such cute boys!!
 Christmas morning! Mac had fun taking things out of his stocking!  Didn't really care about the toys!

 Gpm & Gma gave all of the little kids wiggle cars.  They LOVE them!  Mac and Kaiz had so much fun playing on them.  Even the big kids wanted to play on them!
 Matt got a new impact driver! He likes it!

Mac's 1 yr Visit

Mac went to the Doctor this week for his one year visit!  We were surprised that he really hadn't gained much weight!  He was so good getting his shots!  His stats are
Weight: 19.95 lbs -- 8%
Height: 30.25 in -- 57%
He is walking (he started walking around 10.5 mo.) and loves to explore EVERYTHING!!  He says momma and dadda, and ut-oh, and gibber jabbers all day long!  I am so grateful for this little boy!  He brings so much joy to our lives!!

 Mac was Superman for Halloween!  At the first house we went to he started to cry when he was offered candy... It was funny!  As always we went to my parents after to have stew and home made doughnuts!  It was a fun Halloween!!

 Mac LOVES suckers!  He had his first one this week and now every time he sees one he cries for it!  
 The Monday before Halloween we carved our pumpkins!  It was really fun!!  I did dots, Mac did a turtle and Matt did the eye!

Pumpkin Walk

 A few weeks ago we went to the Pumpkin Walk!  It is always so fun to go see all of the creative scenes.  At the end there is these fun places to put your face.  Mac didn't really get it, but it was still fun!

Mac Turns ONE!!

WARNING: Over load of pics!
 We had a family party on Sunday with both Matt and my family.  We had dinner, cake and ice cream, opened presents and had a blast!!  We had mock Costa Vida for dinner and it tuned out great!!
 I made monster cups
 Mac helped open most of the presents but he didn't really care.  He loves all of his new toys to play with!!
 Mac and his cakes.  I baked and did the base frosting and Matt did the "monster" details.  He didn't really understand how to blow out the candles.  But he totally knew how to eat it!!

 He was a little shy at first...

Then he dug in!! 

 All messy!!
 Matt threw him in the tub right after, and of  course he loved it!!
We had a great birthday!!  He is such a joy in our lives!!  Happy Birthday Mac!!

9 mo check up

I can't believe that Mac is growing up so fast.  In July he had his 9 mo. check up at the doctors office.  He is so busy all of the time!  He crawls and like to cruise on everything from walls to furniture.  He says Mamma and Dadda but I don't think he know which is which.  He eats TONS of food all of the time.  He likes to explore everything!!! He is such a joy and we are so glad that he is part of our family!! His stats are as follows:
Weight: 19.4 lbs. -- 25%
Length: 28 in. -- 33%
Head: 17.5 cm. -- 22%
He is kind of on the small side on paper (I don't know how because he eats so much!!), but it seems like he is growing like a weed!!

July and August!!

I know that it has been too long since I posted, but here is all the crazy busy and fun thing that we have been doing in the last couple of months!!
 We had a great 5 year anniversary!  We spent the weekend with just each other and shopped!  It was great!!
 Mac and I went to the pool a lot this summer!  He mostly went to the child care place and I went to the pool!! It was great!! He did really like swimming in the pool!
 I just love this picture!  Mac loves the bath!
 The 24th of July is always so much fun!  We went to a dinner party and then the fire works with my family.  They are always really good!  I love fire works!

 The last week of July we went to Lake Powell.  We left Mac with his Bumma in Salt Lake.  It was the first time leaving him for that long...but it was great and all was well!  We had so much fun at Lake Powell!!  
 Matt and I went and explored the rocks by out boat!
 There were three prego ladies at Powell this year!  I was just glad that I wasn't this year!

Out to dinner with my boys!!
 The second week of August we went to Yellowstone for a long weekend.  The boys all rode their motorcycles and us girls took turns riding and driving the truck!  It was a lot of fun!  We went to different places this year from last year.
 There were lots of stinky geysers and pools that we went to.
 Mac always rode in our backpack carrier and he did so good!  He would fall asleep and it was so funny!
 We went to two different waterfalls!  They were so beautiful!  This one was a really tall one.
 This is the lower waterfalls that we went to last year.  Last year we went to the top of the falls.  This year we went to the bottom.  There were around 350 stairs to the bottom.  It was kind of scary going to these stairs that looked like they were barely hooked on the mountain.
We have had a great couple of months!!  We are now working on putting our yard together...which is not so fun.  I will post pics of them soon!
