So Close!

Max is so close to walking. He is perfecting his technique before his big debut but we are starting to see moments of bravery.

He leads us around the house constantly with a tight grip on one of our fingers...

...stops to pick up something interesting off the floor and becomes so distracted that he lets go and stands on his own!

Then he falls.

Back up again and off in another direction...

...and there he goes! A few steps on his own! I bet Carmon that Max would be walking by the weekend - we'll keep you posted.

A Three Day Weekend

Oh how I love the three day long weekend - no Sunday night panic, no scrambling to get the house in order all weekend long - this Monday off was such a bonus. I can't tell you how much I appreciate this now that I am back at work.

We enjoyed a Family Day brunch at Mildred's Temple Kitchen. Max had croissant and roasted potatoes.

Baba flew in for a weekend visit to celebrate Max's birthday and Max had a great time playing and showing Baba all of his new tricks. Baba spoiled us all rotten!

An angelic smile after another long night - not the best little sleeper these days!

'One' Love

Wishing you a happy, happy one year little boy!

Apologies for the long absence everyone - it has been a little nutty over here. Max has officially started Day Care and after just a few days, caught a nasty cold with a sore throat and fever...a few days later, Carmon and I had it too. We have all recovered, just in time to pull together a low key celebration for the big day.

a curious little man.

vanilla cupcakes with white chocolate cream cheese icing....

sweet gifts and wishes from home...

a little help from dad...

a cool new bib from the Heystek girls...

a parcel from Grandma and Grandpa lovingly wrapped with cowboy paper...

make a wish...


an attempt to get a cute group shot of Max with his buddies...this was the best we could do!

hurriedly unwrapping...

the coolest party hats!

Max you were the best Valentine's Day gift - thank you for one special year our little love!
