Max's new odoor world

Max had his first experience in the grass today! He loved it and spent most of his time ripping it out of the ground! He and Daddy had a great time exploring the new territory! They were two little peas in a pod! Doesn't get any cuter!!

Max is enjoying the cooler weather. He's been crusing in the yard with Daddy the last couple of nights. It's nice that's it's not so hot that he's uncomfortable and is enjoying being outdoors more now.

Max is starting to teeth big time. He was pretty upset last night and we had to bounce him quite a bit to keep him from fussing. Max woke up late night and Daddy did some "freeway fathering" and drove Max until he fell asleep. This little pouty face was just before his fussy period. He looks like he's about to cry.... poor little guy.

Max's dedication to the Lord

We had the most perfect day today! We dedicated Max to the Lord! He was an angel baby. He ate really well and napped before we went to chuch. So, by the time he was up infront of the church, he was all smiles and just winning over the crowd! You know, everyone loves Max! Mike did a killer BBQ for us; the food was fantastic!! We had a wonderful sunny day and it was great to share such a special day with dear friends!! We are blessed beyond belief!

Beautiful Gifts from Godmother

So, you probably recognize this image from the title bar of the blog. It's one of our favorites pictures from Max's first photoshoot. Well, Auntie Becky, drew this amazing rendition for us with pencil and charcoal!! We can't stand it!!! It's such a wonderful heirloom we'll treasure forever!! It's hanging in our living room for all to see!! We had to share with you too!

Like the portrait isn't great enough, that she also made us this super cool Christmas stockings! Which is really great, because we didn't have any! Boy, do we know how to pick a Godmother or what??

Oh yea ... and the other thing we're super excited about is ... BINKIES!!! Max has these binkies that he LOVES and we couldn't find anymore. Well, Becky found them and brough him 4! So, we no longer have to be in a panic that we may lose one! WOOHOO!

Later today, we're dedicating Max to the Lord and having a BIG party! It's going to be a great day!!!

Random acts of cuteness

This is how I woke up to find Max! He has this new thing where he's sleeping with his bum straight up in the air!! I can roll him over and slip a binky in his mouth, but he flips right back up with his little tushie pointing to the sky! Too funny!

And what is the first thing he wants to do when he gets up ... JUMPEROO! Well, mack on some formula, then jumperoo. Hence the bib, if he's not drooling, then he's chumming because he just had his breakfast. But you can't come between a boy and his jumperoo!

Labor Day Weekend

We had a great Labor Day weekend. Tom, Tristan and Linh came to visit us. We had a bit of a PLM party on Friday night. We had some Creeker friends come over and see what the Silvertip software is up to. Max saw the “smart guys” working on code Friday and I think he was taking it all in, staring at what was projected on the wall. He had a great time mingling with old friends, like Auntie Virginia, and making new friends too. He’s such a people person. :)

Saturday we all went out to breakfast then up to Schweitzer for a little beer festival. Max got carded. The rest of the weekend was just time spent with family. That time is so precious, that we really enjoyed it.
