Officially walking

Maxx officially started walking last week or so. He still goes down and crawls a lot but he can move! Here is quick video. He goes fast and falls but you get the idea!

He could do this for hours

First Christmas

Maxx a wonderful first Christmas.

We spent Christmas Eve with the Henderson/Brehm Family. We had some Popeyes Chicken and exchanged gifts. Maxx was so excited when we opened each and every toy.

Then he woke up late (7:30!) on Christmas morning. Let's hope he keeps doing that each Christmas. He was a little overwhelmed by all his toys. But he soon figured out how to jump right in and play with them. We then went to Will and Rachael's house for Christmas lunch with the Spencer/Rafferty families. Later that evening we went to visit the Spencer/Austin Families. Maxx was spoiled and got some really wonderful gifts. It is so great to have such wonderful family and friends who care so much about us.

Now on to the pics.

Our little family. He was more interested in the Sock Monkey than he was in taking a picture!

Here Maxx is on his ride-on Radio Flyer Rocket from Granny and Popsi.

And walking all over Uncle Will and Nanny's house getting into everything!

A non-Maxx post

Here is a rare non-Maxx post.

We had a wedding Saturday night downtown during that horrible Saints game. I was upset that we really couldn't watch the game but now I am kind of glad I didn't have to witness it. Here are a few pics.

Another fun part of our night was that my cousins, Tim and Shay, were in town. We got to hang out after the wedding/game. I had such a good time with them. I can't wait to see them in April for their wedding!

Same password as the last time.

Here are a few of my favs.

Maxx visited with his good friend Noah last weekend. I got a cute shot of them. Kind of looks they are discussing all the trouble they will get into in the future!

This is how close he sits to watch Elmo. He loves Elmo.

And yes, we do let him watch tv.

Who Dat!!

Go Saints Go!!! 13-0


Sorry for the lack of post this last week. All three of us have some sort of cold/sinus thing going on. Maxx has a runny nose and congestion. I have my usual and I am by far feeling the worst. We haven't been doing much since we are feeling bad.

We had dinner with my good friend Kathy on Friday. Maxx slept through most of the meal so he didn't get to eat his cheese quesadilla that I ordered for him. So he tried it when we got home...and it was a hit.

And here he is trying to grab the camera.

Maxx spent his 2nd night away from home on Friday. He stayed with Granny and Popsi while we went to my work party. He had a great time helping to put up their Christmas tree.

Maxx is also becoming more mobile everyday. He has now started letting go and free standing alone. He takes tiny little baby steps. Or sometimes he attempts to run and then crashes down! I think he will be walking in about a month or so.

Maxx met Santa for the first time today.....and he LOVED him!!!!

He laughed and smiled at Santa. He concentrated on the beard for a few seconds but looked our way as soon as he heard a squeeky toy. (hm...sounds kind of like his dog-sister Sandi.)

9 months old!

Maxx is 9 months old...well it was actually yesterday!

We have our 9 month checkup today and I can't wait to see how much he has grown in these last 3 months. He is getting so big. He has been super fussy in the evening lately so my attempt to get pictures didn't go so well. Here are a few.

He was more interested in the grass than he was taking pictures.

Seriously, mom, that is enough pictures!

Crawling away from me!

All smiles as he is crawling.
