Christmas in June

Miss Linda went through her darling son, Julian’s things and sent THREE boxes of stuff for Max! The boxes were filled with awesome clothes and all kinds of fun toys! Max was having a blast going through the boxes, flinging clothes around, trying on hats and playing with his new toys. It was like Christmas all over again. Thank you Linda, David and Julian for blessing Max in such a great way!! He will get tons of enjoyment out of all his new loot! Love you!

He's a shredder!


Max has these moments where he's totally into shredding the phone book. We generally like it because he's quiet and in one place so we can get something done for 5 minutes. He'll sit in the corner, pull out the phone book and rip out a page. Then he'll start tearing the page lengthwise into long strips that he just makes skinnier with ever tear. He can spend up to 20 minutes in his confetti manufacturing process! We always pounce on the opportunity to have free hands and clean up the mess later. Just nobody ask me for a phone number, we probably don't have it anymore! :-)

Happy Father's Day

So you're probably wondering, "where is the father in father's day pictures?" ... Well, our gift to daddy was Max time with mamma so he could work on the vegetable garden.

Max and mamma had fun: a trip to CDA, running around in the yard, playing outside, and of coarse ... a photo session.

Happy Father's Day, Tommy! You're an outstanding father and the unconditional love and patience you show in taking care of Max every day is the biggest blessing to our family! We love you more than words could ever express!

2 great new things … Dancing and Praying!

Max has discovered DANCING! What fun! He just starts busting a move when he hears music, sometimes from the radio, sometimes from his toys. He gets even more enjoyment out of it if we dance with him!

Every time I think, he’s just as cute and as fun as he could possibly ever be …. He does something like this that just makes him even more of a joy!

Max and his prayer partner

Our friend Daphne gave Max this great prayer doll that he has just now discovered. Max LOVES him! He goes around pressing his belly and smiling while the doll recites the prayer. He’s learning to say, “Amen”. The other night, I put him to bed with his prayer partner. Needless to say, that wasn’t the smartest thing. I heard this prayer over the baby monitor for about an hour. Just when you would think he was sleeping, you’d hear the prayer start up again. It started to get a little creepy. LOL. But it sure is precious to see him get so happy when he hears the prayer and his version of “Amen”.

Come Sail Away

Ok - not a sail boat ... but a boat none the less ...

We had all kinds of fun this weekend, including taking Max on his maiden voyage on a boat! Jennifer and Chloe invited us to take a cruise on Lake Pend Oreille. Pretty adventurous for two moms and no boys to help hold the babies!

Jennifer is a boat master and I was super impressed with her skills. It was a beautiful day and really cool to be out on the lake. Come to think of it, it was my maiden voyage on Lake Pend Oreille too.Max was a little over heated with the cheap life jacket that mama bought him. We need to exchange it for one that breathes better; Max was a little inferno! Once we got cruising, the breeze helped mellow him out. You can tell from this pic that he looks a little flush.

Jennifer was very well prepared with snacks and some beer and wine. But because we were juggling babies, we didn’t get to partake in cocktails. I guess boys come in handy sometimes. Next cruise, we’ll have to bring the Dads!

Thank you soooo much Jennifer! It was great fun and we can’t wait for our next adventure!

and the winner is? Max with a head butt!

There is nothing Max loves more than wrestling on the floor with Daddy! Sometimes, Max even wins …. even if it’s a low blow head butt at the end of the game.
