February love

Since I didn't post on Valentine's like I planned, I thought I would close February with that post.

Max has made me some amazing gifts over his short 18 months of life. Ms. Nicole (Max's nanny and our dear friend) did a great job of making sure his little handprints were recorded. I was not looking forward to daycare knowing the art projects and holiday gifts just wouldn't be the same. However, his Academy did surprise me.

Pull down the little hand for a little surprise.
We also had to experience a first this Valentine's Day ... drafting valentine cards to Max's classmates. Since store bought cards aren't personal enough, I made cards that reflected Max's personality. Max loves pop up books, so I spent time cutting and folding paper valentines. They were a lot easier than you would think and I think the extra 20 minutes out of my day was worth it!

Lastly, daycare gave us some extra photos that were on display in the room for Valentine's Day. I took them to work to brighten my stressful days.

Play time in Wylie

We have been blessed with beautiful weather here which has allowed us to spend plenty of hours outside running around and being mischievous. The giggles that come from this little man when he runs just crack me up and the insistence to go down the big boy slide never let up.

Fun filled weekend

We had a fun filled weekend of just staying home and getting things done around the house. Max man has been keeping us both busy with his cute devilish toddler behavior. His new thing that he does is run over to you and then stomp on your feet while barefoot, but only after he misses a few times. He laughs and laughs. We are so blessed to have such a fun kid that is active and laughs 99% of the day. He has also become quite the helper around the house. He puts his toys in the trash and his trash in the sink. We are working on proper placement.

Max went down the slide with his stacking toy 4 times.

Enjoying the great Texas weather.  Feb. 10, 2013
