Hotdog For Sale

Max was ready for his first Halloween Party.....

Cutest hotdog!

All partied out! :)


Coos and Smiles

Well goodness it feels like FOREVER since I've posted a blog.  A lot has happened in the past couple weeks.  I started work again.  BOO!  Really it's not that bad being back.  Of course I would much rather spend my day with Max.  Max officially is in daycare.  Oh lordy was that hard!  I was a crying mess the Sunday before, his first Monday, and I shed a few tears that Tuesday.  Since then, picking him up is the best time of day!!

Max is making more coos and other baby talk more than ever.  He's smiling so much, and I'm pretty sure he'll be laughing soon.  He had his 2 month appointment.  Umm...seeing Ian hold his arms down while the nurse lady poked him with needles was a sight I didn't like to see.  It's terrible seeing your baby in pain.  He ended up getting a fever afterwards, and I just felt so bad for him.  Luckily he was better the next day.  He was a happy baby at daycare.  :)  Our little man isn't so little.  He weighs 13 lbs and is 24 1/2 in. long.  He's growing so fast!!!

Tonight is the annual Beachy Bash and we'll be dressing up Max in his first costume!!  Hopefully he likes his costume as much as we like it.  I bet when he's older and we show him the pictures he's going to be embarrassed or mad at us. Hmm...oh well. :) 

First day of daycare ....:(

Max was a happy baby!

2 months!

Max, Max, and More Max!

 Max giving me the look that makes me say, "Awww..."
Max was sleeping on his boppy, but managed to scoot himself down onto the couch.
 Sitting in his Bumbo like a big boy!
Splish, splash he was taking a bath....which he loves!!


Conversations With Max

I have been having the best conversations with my little man.  Boy does he like to talk.  :)  I started filling out his baby book.  It's starts off with the day we found out we were having a baby.  I really can't believe how we went from finding out about our little miracle to him already being a month and 2 weeks old!!  I don't know where the time goes, but I'd really like it to slow down.  I go back to work on October 18th.  I've always loved teaching.  I've always been ready to go to work and teach my kiddos something new.  Now though....I just want to stay home with Max.  I feel like I've lost a little of my desire to teach.  Maybe it will come back when I go back, but right now I can say I'd be 100% happy staying home with my little man.  Maybe one day......

So while Ian's parents were in town we went to Flagstaff.  It was a good mini vacation.  We went on a hike that had 240 steps we had to go down and then back up.  Talk about a hike!!!  Max had it the easiest, because he slept the entire time.  :)  I'm finding that Max sleeps through many of his adventures.  

His Pap-pap and Mum-mum left on Monday.  It was sad to see them go. We'll be seeing them in December though when we go to Alaska for Christmas.  Max will be 4 months then.  He'll be meeting his cousins, Amaya, who was born on September 9th and Jbo.  We're also hoping to baptize him while he's there, so hopefully that works out.  

We measured him the other day because he seems so long.  He was 21 inches when he was born, and he's just about 24 inches.  He loves to stare at the shadows the fan makes on the walls.  He loves when you talk to him in a high pitched voice.  He'll sit and listen to you when you talk to him or sing to him.  He loves to sit up in his boppy and look around.  He loves his baths now, as long as they are very warm.  :) 

Life with Max is absolutely wonderful.  He makes every day that much better for Ian and me. The many adventures of Max are just beginning.  :)
