When you gotta go, you gotta go

I have had a few people ask how is potty training going? My response, well  – it’s going! The last time I have spent this much time in our bathroom was when we were 21 and closing down the bars. I can say, we have a pretty clean bathroom now from me re-organizing it and…

We are all Creative Beings

The days of summer are here! Getting Maddox to sit still for his treatments are becoming more and more of a chore for all of us. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be outside playing baseball, throwing water balloons, playing in the sandbox, casting his fishing pole, blowing bubbles, riding his bike, etc. As the…

A Day at the Lake

It’s 90+ degrees outside and the humidity sucks – how do you beat the heat? Visit a lake of course! 4th of July we had a chance to head over to Oma and Opa’s house with our buddy Ollie. Maddox has been hit or miss with swimming in general. We bought a pool this summer…

How many CF’ers are in WI?

Earlier this week, we posted on the Team Maddox Facebook page a simple question. How many people in the State of WI have CF? I was actually really surprised by this number and few figures that we were given by a letter from the CF Foundation – Wisconsin Chapter. The letter was a wrap up…

Quarterly CF Update

The orange construction cones, the 172 bridge that everyone speeds on, the road in Green Bay that needs to be repaired but has beautiful flowers and we arrive at St Vincent Hospital in Green Bay. We say hi to the friendly receptionist at the desk and give our names. Maddox is super shy in the…

Mommy’s Favorite

This past weekend we had a chance to enjoy a tradition that I have had since I was a little girl. It happens in the spring time, when the frost is gone and the weather is on the verge of summer when the humidity is starting to climb, the days are getting longer and all…

Sweet Dreams

I’m really not sure how this happened, but my little guy is growing up! Seriously, one day we are snuggling on the couch just cooing and crying and the next thing we are sitting on the potty like a champ and sleeping in his big boy bed. So, the big boy bed is here. I…

And so it begins.. Potty Training

It was a busy weekend for Maddox,  a lot of big and exciting changes. One of them is the presence of potty training. Nick and I always played with the thoughts of Potty training with Maddox  and talked about it a lot with him. But we really let him take the wheel on the timing…

Blue Bear

Entering Stage left: Blue Bear! He’s a stuffed bear that’s blue and this bear has been through a lot already in the 8 months we’ve had him, but never ceases to amaze us on what this little bear can do, seriously. This bear is the one I bought when I was out in Washington DC…
