Who is still out there??

I know I have been a terrible blogger lately. I have a plan to make 2011 a better blog year. But I am wondering who is still out there??? Leave me a comment if you still visit us. You have until 12/31/10 to leave your comment. I will take all comments and put them in a hat for Maxx to pick and the winner will get a little prize.

(Gran Pat, Maw-Maw El, and Paw-Paw Bill can't participate. You get these blog posts as emails so I know you still read them.) :)

New way to drink

I just had to share this pic that my mom took of crazy Mr Maxx. The boy really loves his dvd's.

22 months!

I can't believe that my little man is 22 months old already. 2 more months until the 2nd birthday. It really is amazing how fast time is flying by. I have to remember to slow down a little bit and enjoy it while I can.

Christmas pics 2010

Maxx went to visit Santa at the mall last week and he did very well. No tears at all. I was so proud of my big boy.

We also received our first school Christmas ornament last week. The teacher said that M refused to smile when they were trying to take pics. He is making his mean face. But at least he still looks cute.

21 months

M turned 21 months back on the 19th. Only 3 more months before we celebrate the big #2. Here is the best teddy pic I got.

You can see that he ripped the 21 month sign next to him. :)

School pics

We received Maxx's first school picture yesterday. How cute is this??? I can't believe he sat still long enough and even smiled at the camera!

Every now and then Maxx's OCD comes out..............

Later that evening we went out to dinner with our friends the Rovira's. After dinner, Maxx was pushing Joe around the house on Handy Manny. This just looks like trouble waiting to happen!

Boo Dat

Nanny Hilda gave Maxx the cutest little shirt for Halloween. It says Boo Dat! He wore it to school for his Halloween party day.

Halloween 2010

Sorry I have seriously been the worst blogger in the world. I have been waiting for Gran Pat to upload her Halloween pics to my computer but she hasn't done that yet. Maxx dressed up as Elmo, I was Big Bird, Gran was Abby, and Uncle Mark was Cookie Monster. We looked super cute.

Here is our Elmo!

I worked on getting the house (well porch) ready for fall on Friday. I can't really put my house decorations up now b/c the house is literally filled with boxes and stuff due to the renovations. So, the porch will have to do for now. Here is Maxx posing with our precious pumpkins. I don't carve the pumpkins anymore b/c they don't last too long. I love our "Boo" inspired pumpkin.

He was talking to the little pumpkin here. I wish I knew what he was trying to say to it.

This precious smile was b/c dada had pulled into the driveway. He gets so excited when he sees Scott's truck pull into the driveway.

So of course, he had to go jump into the truck and try to drive away!


S and I took M to go get some pumpkins on Friday. I love pumpkins so I hoped M will like them too. He really wasn't interested in the pumpkins. He was more interested in just running around, up and down some stairs, and trying to get inside some doors that he found.


YUM! I made some stir-fry a few weeks ago. My mom used to make this for us when I was younger. It came out super YUMMY.

M didn't like it however. I am running out of things to feed Maxx lately. He is becoming super picky. Anyone have any suggestions on what to cook for a toddler??

Together forever, the world seems fine...

Anyone ever seen Elmo in Grouchland??? Well, if you live in our house you would see this movie 24-7. In the movie, Elmo's blanket ends up down Oscar's trash can and lands in Grouchland. The blanket is stolen by the evil Huxley and Elmo must go on an adventure to retrieve his blankie. Maxx can really relate to this movie. Maxx has a "blankie". He is obsessed with this blanket. All M's troubles seem to go away when blankie is in his arms. I have tried to find another one but have had no luck. I am pretty sure it is from BRU but they don't seem to make it anymore. M sometimes walks around the house with the blanket over his head. Like this....

Time out

on a bench. I am trying to start using time out with Maxx when he misbehaves really bad. If I did it when he just misbehaved a little he would be sitting on the bench all day :) He is just starting to understand the concept of it. Paw-Paw bought M this adorble bench at a garage sale last weekend. He cleaned it up and it is really cute. So far M has not played on it and seems to understand that sitting on this bench is not a good thing.

Playing in the hose

It is still pretty warm down here. M and I decided to play in the hose last weekend. We have to play out on the front lawn since we don't have a backyard right now. Kind of white trash, but whatever.....

He kept wanting to pick up the sprinkler. I love how he is holding his head back so he won't get sprayed in the face.

He also liked to drag it by the concrete so he could splash in the mud.

We had a good time. I can't wait until we have a nice backyard that M can play in for hours!

Sick Baby

Maxx got his first school sickness this week. Last weekend he started with diarrhea and a cold. I took him to the dr and we were told it was just a cold and the runs were a results of the cold. So M went to school Wednesday. I noticed he wasn't really eating much either. Wednesday night he started puking. Luckily the puking didn't last very long. He is eating a little bit more now but still not great. Fortunately we didn't have any diarrhea on Thursday. I am keeping him home today just in case he still has any funk left. This is one of our first major sicknesses so this isn't fun. I am so glad that he has been a very healthy baby!

Halloween Pumpkin

Maxx went to Lakeside on Thursday to visit with the Halloween Pumpkin man. Maxx was not overly thrilled with meeting the Pumpkin this year. M did not want to sit on his lap. I am not sure if he was afraid of the pumpkin or just didn't want to be confined to the lap. On a second attempt, we sat M on the bench next to Mr. Pumpkin and he was much happier. We even got this really cute pic.

Here is a link to last years Pumpkin picture. He is really growing up fast.
