Little Sports Fan

Max is ONE MONTH old!!!!  He's growing so fast!  He smiles so much more now and holds his head up.  He's still a bit of a bobble head, but his little neck is getting stronger!

Max is becoming a sports fan whether he likes it or not.  :)  In the past few weeks he has watched 3 Steelers games, gone to two Coyotes games, and watched his daddy play in a softball game.  He LOVED the hockey games....well the first one he slept through, but the second one he was awake for 2 of the 3 periods.  He also watched the softball game, which was cute to see.  He sat happily on my lap, until he peed on me.  Never a dull moment with Max!  I'm not sure how he feels about football yet, but he looks adorable in his Steelers cap. 

Go Yotes!!

Here we go Steelers, He we go!

Max is also spending time with his Pap-pap and Mum-mum.  His Pap-pap loves feeding him, but when bottles are taken out of his mouth he'll let you know he's still hungry!  Don't mess with Max's food! :) 
Mum-mum quiets him down when he's fussy, and likes to play and talk to her.  It's a sight to see. 

Our visit is now taking us to Flagstaff....more pictures and stories to come!!


The Facts of Max

Last weekend we went to Las Cruces.  I was super nervous to take such a long car ride with Max.  A bunch of "What ifs" ran through my head, especially "What if he cries the entire drive?"   Before we even hit the road this car trip was all about Max.  :)  Packing for him...oh goodness he got his own suitcase!  I didn't exactly know what he would need.  I basically packed all of his newborn clothing!  You would have thought we were going somewhere for a month, let alone 2 days!

As our trip started Max and I were in the backseat and Ian was our driver.  :)  I sat in the back because....I didn't want the little guy to be by himself for the drive, and I wanted to make sure he was okay.  He was absolutely FINE the entire drive.  He slept, and when his eyes closed I fell asleep!  Hey, I have to sleep when I can.  When going to LC, Ian and I usually stop once for about 10 minutes and then hit the road again.  With Max it wasn't so quick.  Our one stop turned into 3 stops.  Our stops were also no longer 10 minutes, but about 20-30 mins.  Oh how things have changed.  Our little guy did so well though!  He slept for most of the way, but was wide awake for about an hour and a half. 

Being back in Las Cruces was great.  Max got to see his grandparents, aunt and uncle.  He also saw the rest of the Tenorio Clan.  He's the baby of the family for a short while.  Within the next week or so Jaxson will be making his big debut! 

Max is growing and changing every day.  His hair is out of control after he's taken a good nap.  It reminds me of the hair on Nick Nolte's mug shot.  Haha!  If you don't know what I'm taking about, google it!  He's still in his newborn clothes, but I think maybe by next week he'll be in the 0-3 month clothes.  He smiles, which is adorable.  He cries tears now, which is heartbreaking.  He's beginning to like baths, as long as he stays warm.  If you take out his bottle before he's done eating he'll growl/grunt at you.  I love this little boy so much!  I dread the day I have to go back to work.....

Dear Time,
Please slow down.  Drag on. 

Max's Mom

Next week is a big week.  1.) Max will be ONE MONTH! 2.) Mum-mum and Pap-pap come to visit on Tuesday! 3.) Max will be introduced to hockey.   Tons of pictures will be taken within the next two weeks! 

Really Mom?  In my robe?

Big stretch in big boy clothes.

Don't mess with my hair.


Adventures in Mommyhood

Well I have been a mommy for 13 days.  For the first 9 days though, my mom was here to help, so I've only been on my own for 4 days.  Having my mom here was wonderful!  When she left, I called her on Monday and asked her to come back!  :)  It's just so nice to have the support here during the day, and to make sure I'm doing everything okay....and to let me take the occasional nap.  I haven't taken a nap now that it's just me and Max during the day while Ian is at work.  I'd rather just watch him sleep. He's such a cutie! 

Some things we've learned about Max:
  • He hates being cold!  Get him ready for a bath and he'll scream bloody murder!
  • He hates baths!  When Ian and I gave him his first bath by ourselves, it was traumatizing.  Poor little man was crying/screaming/holding his breath.  It was the fastest bath known to man!
  • He hates getting his diaper changed, and if he's really mad about it, he just might pee on us!  He has peed all over his wall and changing table a few times!  We have to have faster reflexes when it comes to his surprise pee attacks!
  • He is a burping master.  At first he had trouble with burping, but now, oh lordy!  He burps loud and proud!
  • He loves his car seat.
  • He is perfect. <3

We went to the doctor today, and he said Max was doing fantastic!  Max is now 9 lbs!  We don't have to go back until his 2 month appointment.   Yay!! 

Both Max and I are looking forward to the next 4 days, because Ian has a 4 day weekend.  I'm not sure what we'll do, but I'm sure there won't be a dull moment.  :)  Next week we're going to Las Cruces!  First long car ride for our little man.  We'll see how that goes......

Silly faces :)

Why did you wake me up?

So fresh and so clean after one of his traumatizing baths!

Ready to see the doctor!
