Dexter Alan Tonks


The badonkatonkas are badonkaPARENTS! That's right, we've got ourselves a lil badonkababy and he is adorable! Here's the lowdown...

Dexter Alan Tonks

Born December 16th (1 week early, he's so prompt!)

7 pds. 11 oz.

20 1/2 inches long

freakin adorable! (those were the dr.'s words, I swear!)

Now onto the pictures. So. Many. Pictures.

I told ya that after I had baby, this blog would turn into his shrine.Just the 3 of us. Mommy, Daddy, and Dexter Alan. Look at Devons watery eyes, isn't he the cutest daddy ever! Like my sister said in her blog, he bawled just like his newborn child.All cleaned up.Just chillaxin.Dex and his Grammy Linda.Dexter and cool Uncle Grandpa Ted.His Auntie Chelshea.With Uncle Zach and Aunt Ces.Dexter and Ashlii.Cam & Jen with baby.Liz and Dex.

My friend Katie came to visit too, but I was sort of outta it and thought she was the nurse for a while, therefore I did not take her picture. Sorry Kt.Dexter and Daddy.Awww my two boys. So great.Dexter in his going home outfit. He was not okay with it at first.Getting ready to go home!All bundled up in his cute carseat.Cousin Tessa came to visit. She was really overwhelmed but excited to finally meet Dexter. She's been wondering when he was gonna "come alive".Dexter and Uncle Coleman.This was after we gave Dex a bath. Isn't his bathrobe cute?! Thanks Kaitlyn. He loves it.Dexter and Mommy.Look at his face. Dex is all like "what is my mom doing?!"

Like father, like son. Devon teaching Dex how to play Call of Duty. Yeah, it's the game where you can be a terrorist. Mama's so proud.
But seriously, Dexter was pretty into it. Look how relaxed he is. Living the easy life...
His "blue steel" look. Nailed it.

And finally a close up of the most adorable, the most darling lil' Dexter. He totally has a chin dimple so we know he's going to be a smartie. Or an amazing actor, such as the likes of Mr. John Travolta. Also a chin dimpled man.
That's out little Dexter Alan. We love him so much and have really enjoyed having him around. Best christmas present ever. That's including my Polly Pocket world I got one christmas, which was pretty awesome.
Welcome to the world baby Dexter!!! Mommy and Daddy love you so much!

Oh well HELLO!
Just thought I'd do a lil bloggin before baby comes. Look over @ my baby ticker ---->
only 15 more days to go! Jigga wha?! That means only like 50 days til I actually blog about his birth. Sorry bloggin is oh so difficult for the badonktonkas. Sad face. Harumph.
Anyway, I'll try to make this blog post up right nice. Here are some pics...
I had a friends shower a few weeks ago. It was awesomely amazing! Here's the whole group. Just me and my best girlfriends. Woo!This is me pregnant. That shirt is very flowy so it adds like 10 pounds. Plus ya know how they say "the camera adds 10 pounds". So in all, that's about 20 pounds of optical illusions.This is another picture from my shower. These are the girls who stayed for the after party. Holla! Great times.I had a family/friends shower too and it was also awesomely amazing. This is me opening presents. So exciting! Ahhh!!My sweet mother got my baby his blessing outfit. Isn't it j'adorable? Yeah after he gets blessed I plan on using various pieces of that outfit in his everyday wardrobe. I mean can you just imagine how cute that vest would be with some jeans?! Oh for crying out loud!!
The badonkatonkas @ our wonderful thanksgiving dinner. It was at the Grand America and it. was. delicious. That's us with a cream puff swan! Yes I ate that whole thing. Baby wanted it and what my baby wants my baby gets.
My lovely parents who took us to this grand feast. Ahh love em so much! They also took us to see New Moon afterwards. My dad loved it. And by loved, I mean hated. And by my dad I mean all of us. I'm Team The Blind Side starring Sandra Bullock.This is us in front of an exquisite gingerbread house. Now remember I just ate a huge thanksgiving feast so my belly not only contains a regular baby, but a "food baby" as well. But isn't my hubby oh so cute. I pray everynight that baby will inherit his incredible locks.

So... those are the only pictures we have from the last month. Not even kidding. We don't take many pictures. But we did get a camcorder on black Friday so get ready for some youtube inspired videos! We've already taped spoofs of "Charlie bit my finger" and "David after Dentist".

That's all..

This Is Happening.....

Are you afraid?
Don't be! It's just the badonkatonkas bloggin again!!
The above pic is my hot hubby in his halloween costume. He just had to had to HAD TO be Edward from Twilight. As you can see we went a lil crazy with the white makeup. And ya can't tell in the pic but we used my craft glitter spray all over his chest... Luckily he didn't break out in hives.
Anyway, here are some random pics from the past few months. Not a whole lot of them cuz I don't take pictures much. My bad. That's gonna really change once we have our baby, I just know it. You'll be begging me to stop showing all the pics, but prob not because our baby is gonna be awesome! Not just awesome, he's gonna be awww-a whole bunch. (That's from HIMYM if you didn't get it.. If you didn't get it, I suggest you start watching HIMYM.) This is my brother Cole and I having a dance off in robot 'stumes. I won. Domo Arigato.We got new outfits for church so that calls for a photo sesh. We really loved our new tights. TJ Maxx in St. George knows what is up.

This is from Simpable Things. We gots ourselves some liquid leggins' ow! We love holding up each others legs.

Simpable Things again. Devon didn't have his 'uniform' on yet. Here you can kinda see my ever growing belly. We were making a heart with our hands over it. Ah we heart my belly.
We took a trip down to California cuz Devon's bro Dallin had his homecoming talk AND our new lil nephew Tysen had his baby blessing. The Tonks' know how to conveniently plan events. What a good looking bunch all in our Sunday best!
Devon & Sebastian just having a laugh.
The Badonkatonkas being silly. Ah.
Yep, that's all the pictures I have. Hope they were enjoyed by the 8 of you that read this. Devon doesn't have a Hills update becuase gasp he doesn't watch it anymore. I know!! He just really misses L.C. Don't we all Devy, don't we all.

The results are in...

We have a weiner!!!
That's right! The badonkatonkas are having ourselves a lil baby badonka BOY! We were a tad surprised because all the old wives tales and that Chinese gender predictor all pointed to girl (stupid Chinese, stick with technology & lo mein) but are so happy that we'll be having a lil guy to add to our amazing family.
I can not wait for this to come out of me in 4 months....
'Ello Mommy!!!!
Seriously though, he better have that great head of hair. I mean look at those luscious locks!
And check out all the handsome clothes he's already got! My mom got me a lil "starter kit" for badonkababy and could you just die?! I mean for crying out loud how cute are these clothes?! Thanks Mom for helping my baby look uber fashionable.
Yippee! Hooray! A baby boy! Ahhh we are so excited to meet him, he's gonna be awesome.

I have a theme for the baby's nursery...

Do you love it?

Yes. Pastel potraits of the cast of "The Hills" in their most distraught moments. I plan on painting the baby's room flesh colored of course, to go with Spencer's flesh colored beard. And then I will stencil the babe's room with the most precious quotes from past episodes such as "Change my life, try" and "Homeboy wore boots to the beach" ya know stuff that will really help my child grow and learn. Okay I'm not really doing that, but seriously how much do you love these paintings? Don't worry I've already contacted the artist to tell her thank you for bringing these into my life and asking where I can buy them. Cross your fingers she replies soon. Lil Devy's happiness just got a whole lot awesomier. When I showed him these, he immediately went into art connoisseur mode saying how each piece intricately captures the emotion of the character, right down to the black mascara tear on Lauren's cheek. So incredible. Anyway, here is a link if you'd like to know more about the wonderfulness that are these potraits. Like I said earlier, change my life... try.

P.S. We find out the sex of the baby in 5 days! Who wants to guess what it'll be. You have a 50% chance of being right. Winner gets to come eat lunch with us in the hospital cafeteria after our appt. Yes, that's a huge honor, not because it's with us, but because that food is incredible. I might just go have lunch there today. I'm crazy like that. Woo.


Holy Blog Post Batman!

Ooooh boy. I haven't blogged in 4eva, so get ready to see some stuff cuz the badonkatonkas have had a fairly busy few weeks. We're too awesome! Lots o great pictures down below. Here goes.
This is Dev & Caiz waiting in line to go see Ben Kweller. I bet you thought the store in the background has some significance but it doesn't. Sorry to burst your bubble.
This is Devon waiting at the concert taking a picture with what he thought was a boy. Or did he think it was a girl? We weren't quite sure of the gender. You be the judge.
We got slap bracelets. Ch-ch-ch check it. So 1997.
This picture is a lil carazy but I'll have you notice that good ol' BK is holding his child Dwayne Keller. He came out for a 2nd encore and played BINGO while his son (who is like 3 years old) played the drums. It was awesomely adorable. Or adorably awesome.
This is Devon in a cupcake apron. Hehe.
Ces needed to drain the pineapples but hated the fact that it just goes to waste in the sink. So Devon offered up his mouth. Pineapple juice unwasted!
Here's a close up. Yes she really poured most of that pineapple juice in Dev's mouth.
So my parents were in charge of the food at youth conference and it was at Camp Williams so the theme was ARMY! That's my dad getting pretty into it. Sargent Ted. He also had an apron.
Stone & Sebastian helping with the deco at youth conference. We put tape on their heads. Stone didn't believe, he had to take a look himself.
This is Devon trying on all my dad's army gear. Notice the apron now into the mix, and also a full on camo shirt. Naturally we made him go outside and blend into the greenery so we can try to find him.
And we finally did after 5 minutes. He's behind that bush. I could hear his voice so I just shot in that direction. I couldn't actually see him... Good camo.
We finally found him so Stone & I attacked him while Tessa watched.
Just being silly. Ahhh!
Again, being silly. This time we were able to figure out the flash on my camera.
Now onto what has been going on quite recently. The Utah Arts Festival! My dad is like Mr. Arts Fest and has been for like 20 years. All the Madsen kids help count the money and boy do we have a good time. I've got pictures to prove it.
The sisters in our matching shirts, flashing our all access passes. I'm sure both my sisters will have a picture very similar to this one on their blogs because we made my brother take the pic like 5 times. Thanks Cam. Yes we also have matching tie dye headbands. I mean it is the Arts Festival.
The Madsen girls making the first deposits of the day. We just had to document it mainly because Cam was sick of taking pictures. Hehe classic Cam.
Ces was pretending to flick rubber bands at Cam and he was scared. It. Was. Funny. But you know what was even more funny? When I lifted my hand to fix my hair and he flinched like you wouldn't believe. He hates rubber bands and me fixing my hair apparently. Hehe classic Cam.
Chelsea wanted Cam to go get her a diet coke but he didn't so she was all "Oh Cam you are such a D Bag" and then he found a deposit bag that said "D Bag" so we documented the two D Bags side by side. Hehe, say it with me, classic Cam.
Oooh oooh this is a great story. So since my dad is Mr. Arts Fest, he gets to wear a colored shirt while all of us little people only get to wear the white shirts. Cam has always been his "number 2" or "assistant to Ted Masen (the name on my dads all access pass)" for who knows how long! All Cam has ever wanted was to be able to wear that colored shirt but each year it never happens. Well look who waltzed in with a green shirt.... Cecily! Granted it was my dad's extra one because this is a 4 day event and it's gross to wear the same shirt every day but she got to feel what it was like to be green, not white. So naturally, she bumped herself up to my dad's "number 2." Here's some pictures to show she means business!
This is Cecily reprimanded Cameron while my Dad proudly beams.
This is my dad (in the green) with Cecily (in the green) and in the back is Cam (not in the green) with his head down. Oh how he just wanted a colored shirt.
Number 2! Hehe Jk Cam. You'll get that green shirt one day.

Ooh ooh now this is another great story. There were wheelchairs in the room we were stationed in so Dev & Cole decided to murderball! Yeah MURDERBALL!

Then Devon was all "look I can balance on the wheels" but really his foot was on a box in front of him. Cole really thought he was balancing and he would not be upstaged! So Cole tried to balance as well, and it did not go over as planned.

This is Cole on the ground after he fell backwards. We all laughed for a few minutes and took pictures. Then we did the appropriate thing and asked if he was okay. It was great.

Devon to the rescue!!!

All the girls again. Do you notice something on my forehead? No? Well then....
Here's a closeup. Cecily thought I was a check so she endorsed me with the UAF stamp. It was after midnight so I didn't see it coming. I'm usually so quick on my toes..
Wow. That was a big post. I'm exhausted. Welp, until another 3 weeks...

P.S. I have a feelin there's gonna be a huge gap yet again. I do apologize. If any of you have a "blogging for dummies" book, I need it.
Seriously, there is a HUGE space between the end of this post and where you can leave comments.. So just because you can't see it yet doesn't mean the comment section isn't there. Please feel free to share your thoughts. Even the haters. I think I can take it... Although I must remind you I am pregnant and I can't believe you would dare to leave a hateful comment to a pregnant woman. Hehe I just wanted to remind everyone that I'm pregnant. We've got names picked out. I think they are awesome, Dev's still on the fence with a few. Apparently Usher Jennifer Hudson Tonks doesn't scream our baby. Hehe jk, that's from The Office. Alright, that should clear up some of the gap. Grr.

**Update... Chelsea told me how to fix the gap. Tada! And also, Ben Kweller's son is named Dorian, not Dwayne. My bad. Thanks again Chelshea.
