She also made these great onsies for Max! I can't wait until he's big enought to be sporting them! Then again ... he's growing sooo fast, I don't want to rush it anymore that it already is going by!

The doctor also told us to start him on some watered down juice. So, we tried apple juice. The first time he flipped like a damn pancake! And cried like a crazy man! The second time, he took two sips from his bottle and started spitting it out. Tried again last night and he gave me the big boober lip as if to say, "Where's the white stuff, mommy?" So, I gave him the boobie! LOL...
Last night we had our first adventure with carrots. I think he's a vegetable man, like his daddy. But then again, what part of him isn't like his daddy? He didn't gobble them up, but he seemed to enjoy them a bit more than the peaches, that's for sure. We even used a spoon! WOW! What a big boy! ha ha ha.... So, I'm calling the carrots a mild success. Maybe we should try peas next!

Saturday was the monthly run to Coeur D Alene, to do the Costco/Target extravaganza and stock up. Max was a trooper considering we spent hours in the car. That's what happens when you're in the stix, you have to drive 50 miles each way for decent shopping. Then, we just hung out in the back yard for a bit.
We just got home from church and I guess the sermon was very stimulating for Max; he's been asleep in his car seat for the last half hour. I might also add, he's snoring up a storm.... he's a lot like his daddy!

Max has the awesome silver moon rattle from Tiffany's that his Godmother, Auntie Becky, got for him. I was going to save it so he couldn't ruin it, but Auntie Becky insisted he play with it. Well, it's a good thing, because he loves it! It's very shiny and pretty ... and hard to chew on. All good things in a rattle. I hope he doesn't grow up to have expensive taste! Heck, I didn't see the 'little blue box' until I was in my 30's!!! Talk about born with a silver moon in your mouth! :)

Another one of Max's favorite things to do is bounce around in his Jumperoo ... or as I like to think of it ... the "make Max super tired" toy! He's usually good and mellow after he jumps around in this bad boy for a while. I wish they made these for adults! ... oh wait; I'm already exhausted! :)
I made the mistake last night of taking the pillow out from underneath to see if his feet touched the floor yet. He flipped like a pancake! He couldn't make it bounce for 15 seconds and just started crying! I immediately stuffed the pillow back under his feet, then he cried/laughed and just started bouncing his head off again!

We thought about going to see the fireworks, but Max was sleeping by then .... and frankly, I think I was too! Oh well, there's always next year. And the good thing is, he's so little now, he'll never remember how lame we were! Ha!
Max spent a lot of time doing his top three favorite things:
flying, learning to roll over, and of coarse ... drooling! Drooling is a constant these days. I'm thinking of just putting a drip bucket under his chin and cleaning it out as it fills up! :)
Flying is great fun ... just make sure he doesn't drop drool on your face!
Anyway, here are the main characters in our life story. Me, Tommy and Marvelous Max! This pic was from when Max was 2 weeks old.
More to come soon ....
