The Many Expressions of Max

Max is getting bigger and bigger. He has been enjoying his playmat and has lots of what Cousin Kevin calls "happy spazzems" while there. He also loves stretching:

He is starting to try to shove his whole fist in his mouth frequently and is drooling so much that we have had to start putting bibs on him. Here's a cute one from Cousin Matt:

Max woke up this morning (after a nice *extra* bit of sleep from 6:20 to 8:20 am that let mama get an hour extra sleep and get a few things done too) a happy boy even though he was soaked thorugh.

Hammin' it up:

Today is our four-year anniversary. How much changes in four years! How much changes in just one year! Last year at this time we wanted so badly to have a family, and this year we have a beautiful, charming, personable little almost-three-month-old baby. Like 2005 was for us, 2009 is a year of big changes. A brand new baby, I am trying out the stay-at-home-mom thing (and LOVING it), and now it looks like we are moving to the suburbs. We are on track to close in late September on an adorable home in Lombard near the downtown area and the Metra tracks (hopefully that will make it easy for us to visit our friends in the city). The perfect place for our new family.
