Pumpkin Patch

We took Maxx to the pumpkin patch on Metairie Road today to pick out his first pumpkin. He did a good job in picking his favorite. And then he helped me decorate it when we got home. He really seems to like his pumpkin.






Trying to decide which one he likes better!



He made his decision.



Our decorated pumpkin. (Cristy- this was the thing I bought from Avon last year.)




Showing off his new friend.

Teething Cookie

Maxx had a teething cookie on Tuesday night. He seemed to really enjoy it. He sucked on it for about 5-10 mins before breaking it in half and then I took it away. It made a mess but it was fun.












(Thanks to Shay for helping with me with my new blog signature!!!)

New shoes

Maxx got his first pair of big boy shoes today. Maw-Maw Anita was kind enough to buy them for him for Halloween. We are so thankful. We love them!!! Here is he sporting his new kicks.





He grabbed the remote as I was standing him up on the sofa. He loves remotes.
Maxx also got his first big boy injury today! He somehow nailed his right temple in the playpen today at Popsi and Granny's house. He has a cute little dime sized red mark on his forehead. I tried to get a pic but the flash was shinning off his head. I am sure this is just the first in the long line of bumps and bruises he is going to get!

8 months old

The little guy is 8 months old today. WOW. I can't believe it. He is growing so fast. He is not crawling yet but he is in to everything. He doesn't stop. He loves to stand and walk around. He will hold on and walk all around his pack n play. He loves to laugh at himself too. Maxx is just so much fun to be around. I can't even remember life without him!!!

Sunday

Maxx got a chance to hang with Baby Joe for a little while today. Aren't they just the cutest things???



Maxx loves to grab faces now.



We also let him "play" with his car seat today to keep him occupied so I could watch the Saints beat up on the Giants! Who Dat!!



We also gave Marisa a second chance at making her own baby food. This time it was sweet potatoes. I was hoping for a better response since Maxx loves them but not so much.

Catching up....

Here is my attempt to start catching up with the internet world.

About 2 weeks ago, our good friends Brittany and Steve finally tied the knot. It was a great wedding filled with lots of friends, fun, dancing, drinking, and even an ER visit.

Here is a link to some pictures.

Home Made Baby Food!

My good friend Marisa has ventured into making her own baby food. Maxx gets to be the test dummy for the food. She made him some green beans with mint. Does it look like he liked it?









Yeah, not so much. He tried three bites and spit them all back at me. I will try again tonight with the 2nd half of the jar. I am pretty sure I will get the same reaction.


Sorry, i have been mia again. We had a big weekend with a wedding 2 weeks ago and Maxx and I were out of town last weekend. I plan on catching up with lots of posts this weekend.
