Max and Mommy

I've gotten comments that there a lots of pictures of Max and Daddy ... where's Mom? Well, Mom is the crazy lady behind the camera taking 90 million pictures! As my dad says, Max will be the most well documented baby on the planet!

So here we are ... me and the joy of my life! I can't even remember how I thought I was happy before he came along. Between my angel boy and my terrific husband, I am the luckiest lady in the world! What an amazing family!! When God answers prayers, He does it in a B I G way!

9 months!

Max is already 9 months old! Hard to believe! He went and had his check up on Friday and he grew 3 inches in a matter of a couple of months! I thought for sure he would weigh about 97 pounds because he feels like that a lot of the time ... but alas, he is 30 1/4" tall (95%) and 22 pounds (70%) . The noggin is still above the 95% at 19 inches! He's got a very big brain!

We did some trekking in the neighborhood this weekend and Max just loves being in his backpack riding around with Daddy! He was bundled up in his patagucci from Auntie Becky; so he was toasty warm and enjoyed being outside.

Max met Santa and it was pretty successful. He cried a little bit, but we managed to get a half smile out of him. Then we made the rounds and said, "hello" to all our Creeker friends. It was a good afternoon and left Max pretty tired.

Thank you Coldwater Creek for having this great party for the Creeker kids and letting us meet Santa!

Commando Crawl

Max has been doing the "commando crawl" for a couple of weeks now. I thought for sure he'd be into a "real" crawl by now. Anyway, his new trick is that he can pull himself up to the sitting postition from the crawl. Everyday, it's something new!
