Making new friends

We had fun making new friends yesterday. Val came over with Dallen and we had a great time playing and getting to know each other. Dallen is 1 year old today; happy birthday Dallen! So, Max and he are very close in age.

At first, Max was a little hesitant and was a bit clingy to mama. But he warmed up pretty quickly as he saw Dallen diving into the toys and have fun! Dallen knows how to party, where Max has to overcome a bit of shyness. It’s really good for Max to branch out and start hanging with other little kids. It’s good for me to make friends with other Moms too. So, I think we’ll all end up being very good friends!

Peanut butter!

Max has finally experienced the finer things in food ... PEANUT BUTTER! Yes, Mommy's favorite has been passed down to the next generation. I'm really happy he likes it, because it's probably one of the better things I can make to eat! LOL! The menu is slowly growing! Yay!

Signs of spring

There are finally signs of spring! The snow is all gone in our yard and the grass is green, at least where Tommy has de-thatched. It’s warm enough to hang out in the back yard and play after work. And Max has found two new, very interesting activities: Playing with the grass and opening and closing the sliding screen door! That one is a HUGE hit! But then again, anything that opens/closes, opens/closes, opens/closes …. Over and over again is always a big delight for Max. He’s got this new loud fake laugh that he’s busting out too. Makes it all even funnier! It’s going to be a super fun spring!

Easter Egg Hunt

Max had his first Easter Egg hunt today at Memorial Park. He was more interested in watching all the other little kids that picking up eggs. He picked up one egg, and wanted to give it away to a little girl. Such a flirt! It was small town fun at its finest, even though it was all over in about 10 minutes.

Saturday ... in the Park ... I think it was the 4th of July ...

Ok, not the 4th of July ... the 4th of April ... and I'll stop singing now.

Spring is finally in the air! Finally! We went to the park today to enjoy some of the sunshine. It was a beautiful day and it was fun to get outside and play. Max got some swing action going and really enjoyed himself. He's got such a great giggle! (video to come) I can tell we're going to have a blast on all kinds of adventures this Spring/Summer.

Max also had his maiden voyage on the slide! The milestones are everywhere. :-) He wasn't sure what to make of the slide at first, but after a couple of times going down, he was totally diggin' it!
Max and Daddy ... BFF! :-)
