First Halloween

Max had his first Halloween ... and much to many people's dismay, he did not get any candy! He did really well considering it was nap time and he was really hot in his dino costume. He looked super cute! I'm sure I had more fun showing my pride and joy off to my friends at Coldwater Creek than he did attending the party .

He couldn't wear the dino hood because his head is just too darn big! Mr. 98% of the noggin! It was funny to see other babies the same age with normal sized heads. Made me really think he's got a big one! Oh well, just means he's going to be really smart!

tubbies and two toofers

Here is a fun video of Max having a tubby. He just loves to splash around! He made quite the mess today ... soaked the counter, the cabinets, the floor ... LOL ... but we were both cracking up. He doesn't even want to come out because he's having so much fun. But, I figure its time when he's all pruney!

Wow, dem toofers sure do come in fast! Max has two toofers that are quite visible now. He chews like he's a puppy and now when he nibbles on your fingers, it can hurt. Time for the chew toys ... like a rawhide bone? aaahh... no... just kidding.

This was Max at 2 in the morning last night. It was a little cold and his two toofers were chattering, so I wrapped him up in the dino blankie Auntie Cindy gave him while I made him a bottle. He looked too darn cute not to take his picture!

Here is our boy... getting bigger and bigger! He's got 2 bottom teeth starting to come in . If you click on this picture to zoom in, you can see one of them! Now, that little nub is kinda sharp when he chews on your finger. All I can say is I'm glad we're done breast feeding, cuz he would have been shut off quickly otherwise!

This is just random cuteness! He looks so classic in the backpack with his bunting, baby sunglasses and binky! He is really starting to like trecking around in that now.

Big Boy!

Max is getting to be such a BIG boy! We had a nice cruise in the back pack downtown. He was all bundled up in his patagonia bunting that his Auntie Becky got for him. Which was good because it's getting a bit chilly in Northern Idaho! But not for Max, he was all cozy! We did a walk and a stop at Octoberfest. He's got quite the styling rig and likes being up high and seeing everything going on while riding on Daddy's back.

Max has officially outgrown his infant tubby and is now bathing in the sink. It's a whole new world where he can splash around and have some fun with rubber duckies! Now bath time is super duper fun.... a bit messy because he splashes water everywhere! But it's sooo funny to watch him enjoy and play so much!

We can thank Daddy for the strategic placment of the rubber duckies as to avoid future embarassment!

Max's first cold

It's official ... Max has his first cold and he's miserable! Poor little guy ... and I gave it to him! I've been fighting this thing for a week now, and being the giver that I am, passed it along to Max. Tommy has been up most of the night with him and I'm on duty now. Since I wasn't feeling great to begin with, I'm staying home. We've learned that Max hates the booger sucker outter thingie and having his nose wiped. Oh well, he better get used to it. It seems if he sleeps upwards, with his head on my shoulder, he's less congested and can breathe a little better. Everything I've read on the internet and books says cold meds for kids under 2 is not a good idea. It's all about the snot sucker and a humidifier. Ok moms out there, bring on the advice!
