The boys!

We got together at Joe and Marisa's house last Saturday night for the Saints game. It was the first time that Maxx, Joe Jr, and Erik Jr were all together. Here is an adorable picture of the moms and their boys.

Maxx and Joe Jr really seem to like each other. I am sure they are going to be best friends. I can't wait until Erik Jr is old enough to interact with them.

I love this pic of the two of them! Maxx's expression is priceless.

I love that I can now put Maxx in his pack-n-play and he can PLAY! He will sit and play with all his toys for a good while. He also just plays with the mesh on the sides too. He still falls sometimes and I will find him with his feet in the air looking like a turtle on his back. Here is he playing yesterday. His favorite toy so far is his fishbowl (on his right.) I love when he has it upright and he looks down into the top of it and lowers his head to the bowl. It is too funny. I will have to try to get a picture of that as well.

6 month stats!

Maxx's drs appt was this morning and it went great. He is 17lbs 14oz, 26 1/2 in long. He is in the 50th percentile all around! YAY. Perfect Baby. Some highlights include
  • Sitting- completely and totally unassisted for hours. YAY
  • Pulling himself up to sitting- he just started that this week
  • Scooting- gets around a good bit
  • NO TEETH- nothing so far... (I am kind of excited abou that.)

Here is a cute video that GranPat took on Thursday!

6 months

Maxx is 6 months old today! WOW. Today's photo session went just as well as yesterdays. He really wasn't interested in smiling for me. We go to the dr on Friday so I will just share some pics today and then update with his stats on Friday.

He was much happier once he became a naked baby (he spit up on his outfit)
Check out these rolls

Here is what he thought of the 6 month sign.
And his newest trick, sitting up in his swing. We won't be able to use this anymore!

The pout!

Gran Pat and I attempted to take Maxx's 6 month pics on the porch yesterday afternoon. Yeah, well Maxx had other ideas. He decided to pout the entire time. He didn't cry or fuss, he just stuck that bottom lip out and pouted. I will try again today. I can't wait for everyone to see how big he is next to teddy now .

A great surprise

So Ms. Kathleen (my mil, aka Granny) came over yesterday to give me a surprise. She took Maxx to Sears a few weeks ago and had his picture taken in one of the "vintage" baby outfits! Check him out. Isn't this just the cutest picture?

I am so excited she did this. I love it.

Some pics

Here are some recent pics of Mr. Maxx. He has been so much fun lately. He can play in his exersaucer for hours. He is like a bull in a china shop in it! He can already pull pieces of it apart. He also likes to sit in his bumbo seat and look out the window. He is sitting up like a champ. He did it for about 30 mins on Saturday at Maw-Maw El's with only about 2-3 falls. I really think he will be cutting a tooth in the next few weeks. He is drooling nonstop. Everything gets wet. And everything goes in his mouth. His newest thing is to chew on the snaps on his outfit when I am changing his diaper. He had bananas for the first time this weekend and had some wicked poop issues. I won't be giving him bananas again anytime soon.

Here he is in his exersaucer. I wish you could see the color of his eyes closer in this pic. They are really turning a gorgeous shade of blue!

Sitting up while chewing on Sofie. He can even pic up items while he is stting.

Chewing on a water bottle. He takes after his doggie-sister Sandi!

Waiting to eat breakfast.

And being the coolest baby on the block!

Welcome Baby Erik!

Well, Baby Erik decided that he didn't want to wait until Tuesday to have his birthday...he wanted to share it with Noah!

Baby Erik was born yesterday, 08/03/09 at 11:44am. He was 8lbs 10oz and 21 inches long. He has a head full of brown hair and the cutest little baby wrinkles!

Scott and I went for a visit yesterday before we picked up Maxx. Lisa and both Eriks are doing wonderful. Lisa had a pretty easy delivery and looked beautiful at the hospital.

Scott and I are going to be the godparents of this little angel and we couldn't be happier.

So now our circle of boys is complete and it took exaclty one year to the day!

I am sure Noah, Maxx, Joe Jr, and Erik Jr are going to be great friends. We are so blessed to have such wonderful friends and to know that Maxx will as well.

Maxx and I went swimming in his baby pool for the first time on Friday. He seemed to enjoy it but really didn't understand it just yet.

Check out his fat rolls! They are so cute!


Maxx found his feet last week!

A Maxx of all trades

This is what I found in his PNP today.

He has one paci in his mouth (backwards), another one in his hands. He also has hold on to his inchworm and a blanket. I guess he couldn't make up his mind!
