Reading with Tia Soin

My sister bought me this poem book before I was even pregnant. She said it was for when we have a baby. Little did she know she would have a nephew 10 months later. The other day she sat with Max and read him poems for at least a half hour. He loved it! He seemed so intrigued. He loves his Tia Soin.

Great Deal!

This past weekend we went to a thrift store to look for our halloween costumes and I found a boppy for $4. Yay! I've been wanting one but didn't want to spend the $. It was a little dirty so I had to wash it. I bought a really cute slip cover at Target and now it's perfect! Max seems to really like it too! :)

Sunday with friends

A couple of Sundays ago, we went to the Thorson's/Barnes' for dinner. It was really fun! We ate some yummy food and played a game. Then we just hung out...
Mia already loves Max. She's so gentle with him!
Kelli with Max
Adorable little SofiaI braided Kelli's hair... we were there for a long time! :)

Before Max was born, Mike and I saw a video in our child birth class that shows how babies this young can imitate their parent's expressions. So I've been working with Max to stick out his tongue and he's obviously mastered the skill.

Liz and Jimmy

They came for the weekend to visit their nephew. It was a lot of fun! They are already such a good aunt and uncle to Max. He loves them so much! Saturday night we went to the drive in and on Sunday we had a picnic in the park. The weather was so nice that Max enjoyed a peacful nap on the picnic blanket.

Uncle Jimmy!!!

He loves his Aunt Liz!

Sunday Visitors

Max was loving all the attention he got this weekend. Aunt Rhonda, Generra, and Rocky stopped by to see him.

Generra was scared to hold him at first because she thought that she was going to drop him... but of course she couldn't resist! ;)

Aunt Rhonda said that she wouldn't know how to take care of a baby anymore...hehe. She was a great mommy to my cousins so I know that's not true!

I'm so glad that he was able to meet some more of his family. Thank you for coming to see Max you guys! We love you!

Colic Calm

Max just started having really bad gas about a week or so ago and it's so sad because he cries so hard in pain for a good hour or two every night. I hate seeing him in so much pain! So I've tried the gas drops, massage, changing my diet, etc... nothing seems to work yet. I found this homeopathy gripe water online that's suppose to be really good. We got it in the mail today. Has anyone tried it? We'll see how it works.

He's getting big already!
