And one for the road...

It just seemed wrong to leave the post below as the top post on the blog, so here are some random cuties from pre-meltdown Max this weekend. He starts, as always, by wanting into a closed door:
No, seriously people, let me in here:
There HAS to be a way around it... didn't I hear something like this in a song about a bear hunt?

Rough friggin' weekend

Mommy came home sick on Thursday. By Saturday night, Max sounded like Baby Darth Vader. He was a trooper through the runny nose all day Sunday, and most of Monday. By dinner time tonight, though, he was D-O-N-E. Poor, poor Max!
PS - Thanks Uncle P for the fabbie Memorial Day outfit - at least Max looked seasonally appropriate mid-meltdown!

When Max wants to show us something, he walks up and makes this face: Pick me up!
Yay fun, now pick me up!
Working hard to keep the house clean:

Up to no good!

I turned around from doing my hair, and what did I find?!
It wasn't enough to have the TP off the roll - we had to take it and play!

It's good to be home

How can you not love being around this sweet face?

We're baaaaaa-ack!

Mommy was in DC Monday - Thursday, so we didn't get any pics posted while she was away. We made up for it last night! He's a MUCH more confident walker than he was before I left:
Making kissy faces:

Helping make dinner:
I don't think they see me in here, whew!
Spaghetti and milk for dinner!

Family Day at the Zoo

We decided to hit the zoo this morning before the temps got too high and the crowds to crowded. We rented a zoo stroller for Max, and he had fun driving it! One of our first stops was the playground. Now that we have shoes and can walk, it was a LOT to take in! Max's first foray into fun was trying to crawl up the slide like he does at Gymboree. It was MUCH harder with shoes on and a bigger, steeper slide.
Then Daddy got him set to slide like a big boy
Yay, fun!
Back to work...
There were lots of sticks to play with on the ground
We walked all over the place on the cushiony mulch
Even checked out the tire swing!
After seeing all the animals, it was time to go. It would be un-American to leave the zoo without riding the train first!
Proof Mommy was there too :)

Knock knock

Max and Mommy played in the yard yesterday afternoon. Max wanted to spend a lot of time checking out the front porch

Naked morning baby!

We had a leaky diaper overnight, so this morning Max got to run around in his (fresh) diaper for a while. He had fun!
