Mom's a slacker

My dad actually accused me of slacking on my mommy duties and that I haven't been posting pictures of Max. This is the same man that told me that Max is the most documented baby on the planet! Well, things in Max land are great! What's not to love if you're Max? Days are filled with lots of play, walking dogs with Daddy, and every whim catered to. It's not a bad gig if you can get it.

getting ready to go outside and play.

Max LOVES to run his truck up and down the cement walk way in the back yard.

This is the look on Max's face as he charges after mama to jump on me and attack with tickles.
Look at that awesome smile! Max also has the best giggles I've ever heard!

Max’s 2nd Birthday – Part 2

Well, if you turn two, you should have two parties, right? We had a fun cupcake party with a couple of friends. Super mellow, but super fun just the same. Sure was hoping we’d get Max to dive into the cupcakes, but not so much. He absolutely loves the singing “Happy Birthday” part, and blowing out the candles. That’s great stuff that we can do over and over again if we indulge him; which we did. The cupcakes were interesting to him, and I thought he might go for it … but once he got frosting on his fingers, he was over it. Oh well, maybe next year!

Max 2nd Birthday - part 1

We had a great time for Max’s 2nd birthday. We went to Pan Handler Pies with Uncle Brian and went home for cake and his birthday present. The cake wasn’t that much of a success; the boy isn’t really into sweets. I guess that’s a good thing.

We got him a little drum like the one he uses in his Little Mozart music class. He knew exactly what it was when he opened it and was thrilled to death! Every other parent I know tells us we’re crazy for giving him the drum … but he just has a blast with it. Soon it will be spring time and he can play with it outside!
