18 month pictures

I finally got the proofs from our 18 month photo session with Blink. Here are a few that I borrowed from her site.

Email or message me if you want the password to view the entire gallary. I really LOVE how they came out. Can you tell that he cried and fussed the entire time???

Sorry that I have been a really terrible blogger. I will blame it all on the fact that my wireless internet at the house is horrible and the desktop computer is currently broken. Blogger and my ipad aren't a good mix so I can't really post when playing on the ipad (which I seem to be doing all the time now. I can't imagine what I did before I had access to the internet everywhere!)

I am happy to report that Maxx seems to be doing well in school. He doesn't cry anymore when Uncle Mark drops him off but he does cry when I do. But the teacher reports that he cheers up and has great days. Last friday, he found the one and only puddle on the playground and decided that it looked good enough to sit in! That's my boy.

M turned 19 months last weekend. He is getting so big. He is so sweet and affectionate. He really loves giving hugs and sometimes kisses.

I had to move all the chairs out of his bedroom last weekend. S found him standing on top of his Cars chair, that he had turned on it's back, trying to put a new dvd into his tv this weekend. JOY. And I keep finding him on the desk due to the desk chair. So chairs have been removed. I also had to stack more rubbermaid boxes by his bed b/c I found him climbing into his bed yesterday. He is a handful and a half! But you gotta love him

And I am happy to report that he loves the Saints. We watched the Saints/Falcon game (the first half) together and he really enjoyed it. We cheered and yelled. He was giving high fives and throwing up touchdown signals every few mins. I really hope he will be my child who loves football as much as I do!

We took M to the beach for the first time last weekend. He didn't really like it. The weekend seemed short and rushed. It was a good time but a lot harder to travel with a toddler than I thought it would be. We are doing Disney in January so I hope that is better. Here are some pics I took on my phone of his first time on sand.

Sneak Peek

Here is the sneak peek of M's 18 month pic that was posted on FB. I can't wait to see the rest. Maybe we got some good ones after all.

I think Maxx might want a desk job when he grows up. I found him like this last saturday morning. Just hanging out....

Meatloaf and chicken

So I cooked twice this week with the help of my mom.

First I did meatloaf in the crock pot with a recipe from my sister. This was really good! I am not a huge meatloaf person but I could eat this a lot!

Second, mom helped me cook a whole chicken. This was a first for me and I wasn't sure what to do with the raw, uncooked bird. My wonderful mother marinated it for me and put it in the oven. It is awesome that i have my mom available to help me out with my meals. She is the best.

M loves his bed!

Playing in the hose

We were able to take our first evening walk/jog of the summer this week. Yes, I said first. It has been way too hot here to even attempt to walk in the evenings. After we got back, S decided it was a good idea to let M play in the hose. And of course, M loved it!
