Playing With Max

Here is a little video I took the other day. Max loves to play with cars and I tried to capture him making his car noises. The middle is a little long, but the ending is cute, so watch the whole thing! :)

Max's 1st Birthday

Here are some photos from Max's 1st birthday party. It was a fun day! I tried to post them in order, but they all kind of uploaded in a random order. There are some of his cake, him eating it, opening presents with 11 little cousins and uncles, and playing with his main gift from us ( we only gave him 3 gifts:)) which was a wagon. The wagon is so cool, it even has cup holders in it!! He loves it and we've been having some fun walks this week. Max had to go in and get 3 shots today and on top of it he was hurting from his 2 top teeth coming in. He had a rough day but was a tough guy, although a little out of sorts today. As a reward he got to hangout and go shopping with Dad tonight for 2 hours...oh wait, that was my reward for fussing with him all day! :) He's such a good boy though!!

It's a GIRL!

Well....I'd say we're 95% sure it's a girl! The technician kept reminding us there is never a 100% guarantee, but after much searching, there were no visible signs it was a boy and she detected what she thought was a girl part. :) So we're saying girl and keeping any receipts just in case! We are all really excited, even though we really would have been excited if it was a boy too. I am looking forward to buying girl clothes!! Now Aaron will have a buddy to go fishing with in Max and I will have a girl to watch "The Sound of Music" with me (even though Max will watch too, although Aaron disagrees). Here are a few photos from the ultrasound. The show up
backwards because I took pictures of the ultrasound photos with my built in camera, but they are still fun!

Two weeks ago went out to visit Aaron's family in Ohio. We had such a wonderful time! We hung out and watched Max walk and play, ate great food, and visited Auntie Em's school, Morehead University, in Kentucky. Max became friends with Grandma and Grandpa's cats, or the "tigers" as we called them! :) It was a really fun trip. I only got a few photos because I forgot my charger for my camera and my battery died. Here are a couple shots of the plane trip out, family and what Max did in lieu of sitting on the Easter Bunnies lap. He took one look at him and we knew it would be a disaster!

The plane out.

Kicking back and relaxing...if only it lasted!

Riding in toy cars is much better than the easter bunny!

Grandma, Max and Dad....three generations.

It's been a while since I've posted anything, but it's also been a busy couple of weeks. We moved out of our place, went to Ohio, and all got the flu (I got it the worst, and when mommy is sick, no one is happy)! We are finally getting back to our normal routine. We are living with my parents because our lease was up but we are still waiting to find out if Aaron will get into the CHP Academy class starting at the end of April. He has his final test this Thursday morning. If he does get in this month, he will live in Sacramento, 3 hours away from Fresno, for 6 months, so Max and I will stay with my parents. Next week we also are going in for an ultrasound and will hopefully get to find out if we are having a boy or a girl, so stay tuned!! Here are a couple of photos taken before our trip. I will post a seperate posting of our visit to Ohio next! And I almost forgot, Max is walking now!! It happened fast and he loves the freedom!

My adorable little Man

Moving day....Max and I hung out with Trayce while the Dad's moved

How much is that doggy in the window? He sure thinks he's funny!
