Santa Meet Max

Mom and Dad surprised us after school and took us to the Milwaukee Athletic Club to decorate gingerbread houses. We each got our own this year along with more toppings than we could ever use, but believe us when we tell you that we tried. Max enjoyed just taking in the scenery which included a visit from Santa. It was fun introducing Max to him, and this year we succeeded on the first try in letting Santa know what we wanted for Christmas (Nintendo 3DS and Lego X-Wing Fighter for me and window seat pillows and an iHome speaker for Lily). Only 25 more days to go!!!

Maxwell - Three Months

 Although Max wasn't really in the mood to take pictures, he quickly learned that he didn't have a choice in the matter especially on his three month birthday! He muddled through giving Mom only a glimpse of his cute little smile. Max is getting so big and is now in his 3-6 month clothes. His big accomplishment this month was sleeping through the night twice, and having a handful of six hour sleeps. Slowly but surely we will teach him that sleep, especially at night, is a good thing. Other big milestones are that he is starting to reach for toys and he is sitting in his Bumbo seat. We're especially excited about these as it means we can start to play and interact with him more often. Eating is by far still his favorite thing, and this is really the only time we hear him cry. The rule in our house is don't mess with Max's bottle! Cooing and babbling are a close second on his list of favorites though and he is talking more and more with us every day. It is so much fun to see he him grow and we can't wait to see what changes will come in month four!

Thanksgiving Week

Thanksgiving this year was a bit atypical for us due to Daddy taking a little fall from a 10 foot ladder the Monday prior. One broken/dislocated elbow, broken wrist, and sprained ankle later and instead of driving to Illinois we were eating turkey and stuffing in the lounge at the hospital. Gigi and Pop Pops joined us for the week to help out with Dad, and Titi Maria, Uncle Angel and Titi Molly came up the day after Thanksgiving to see all of us. We were so thankful for family and friends who were there for us during the crazy week and made it feel like Thanksgiving after all. It was definitely eventful and what a way to celebrate Maxwell's first Thanksgiving!

Maxwell's Baptism

Today we celebrated Maxwell's Baptism and our birthdays and lots of family and friends came to celebrate with us. Uncle B and Mr. Dav were chosen by Mom and Dad to be Max's Godparents and we know they are going to be the best Godparents little Max could ask for. Max was a champion for Deacon Joe and just stared around during the ceremony. He even cracked a smile after being blessed by the water as if he knew it was all good. After the celebration we had today we are pretty sure Max is right, ALL IS GOOD here in our world!

You all know how often I ask to have my picture taken so when last night I wanted a picture of myself with the little bro Mom gladly obliged!

Maxwell is learning at a young age that there is always a camera somewhere to be found if Mom is around. He is quickly mastering the cheesy grin too and often poses until exhaustion sets in.
