1st Birthday Party

Maxx's first birthday party was Saturday 2/20 at Will and Rach's house. The theme was Handy Manny. The party was awesome. The weather was great and everyone seemed to have a great time. Maxx got some wonderful presents. Thanks to everyone who came and made our little guys day so special. We love you!

Maxx sitting in his Little Tykes Bouncer. He wasn't too sure he liked it.
He was more content walking around in the grass and picking up leaves.
Happy Birthday to Maxx!

Oh so good!

Ice Cream = Good

Happt 1st Birthday Maxx!

Maxx turns one today! I really can't believe that this first year has flown by so fast. Right about this time last year my biggest fear came water broke at work!! All I wanted was a sweet tea from WOW but my little guy had other ideas. Then 6 short hours later, I was given the most precious gift I could ever ask for.

I might be a little biased but Maxx is amazing. He is adorble, smart, sweet, funny. I can already tell that he is going to be a heartbreaker. I just love watching him grow and learn new things.

Maxx doesn't go to the dr for another week so we don't have any stats yet but I will post them as soon as I can. We did have a sick visit last week and he was 23 lbs 3 oz. WOW! Big boy.

We tried to get some 1 year pics. It was rough but I got a few cute ones!

I took his wand away from him here.

I know that this next year with him is just going to get better! I hope that you continue to check in with us and watch my little guy grow!

What a mess

Maxx had a good time eating some pork and carrots the other night. I also let him try to feed himself on the spoon. It was a mess but it was fun.

Happy Mardi Gras

Happy Mardi Gras. I am kind of glad it is over. I am going to take time in lent to get back on track with my diet and being more healthy. Plus, this city needs a break!!

This year was Maxx's 2nd Mardi Gras. He was only 5 days old last year so this year was his first for parades. I think he was just confused by the whole thing. It was chilly and sunny and he didn't want to keep his sunglasses on. And he missed his morning nap. Good thing Gran Pat arrived and she was able to get him to take a nap. Gotta love Gran Pat, she rocks. Here are a few pics.

Maxx and Scott. Gotta love their matching faces!

I love this pic. He didn't really like his glasses.

Me and Scott

Maxx in his stroller. He was alot happier b/c the sun wasn't in his face and Gran Pat was feeding him a sandwich!

And playing with magnets back at my sister's house. Gotta love his Mardi Gras shirt! (however, it is an 18 month romper and barely fits!)

Magic Wand

I bought this light up wand thing the other day thinking it would help me get better pics of Maxx. Well, it doesn't work. As soon as he sees it he comes running towards me trying to grab it. Here was our attempt at some pics the other night.

Gotta love these cheeks!

Now he's happy.

And then he gets mad b/c I took it away from him.

And then he decided to eat it.

Peek a boo!

Here is a cute video of Maxx that was taken during the Super Bowl. The video is a little dark. But you have to love how he laughs and "fake laughs".
