For Easter, we all went to Rancho Mirage to spend it with Mom and Jeff. The weather was so nice, so I took a few pictures of Max with Tia Soin
...and Daddy.
Max liked Jeff's car.
Every year we decorate eggs with nail polish. They come out so much prettier!
Grandmother helped Max decorate his first egg.
Here are some of our masterpieces.
And of course Mike always makes the coolest one!
Max loved his Easter bucket from Grandmother. It had lots of goodies!
Max found an egg!
But the eggs were kind of slippery and he couldn't pick any up!
It made him really sad....
But my boy doesn't give up!

He did it!!!

mmm... yummy nail polish egg...Grandmother helped him find another one.
And another!
Then it was time for a family picture.

And another!

What a fun Easter.

Max's New Crib

Max has finally grown out of his bassinett, so Grandmother bought him a crib. It's perfect and he loves it. He sleeps really well in it because it gives him space to roll over and spread out. On our way to get the crib I was telling Mike that we need to get a bumper for it. When we got to the store he spotted those stuffed alligators and said, "hey we can use these for the bumper!" I thought about it for a few seconds and decided that it was a great idea since his room has somewhat of a jungle theme anyway. I think it looks really cute. What do you think?
Now we just have to do some rearranging so that everything fits and looks nice in his room. When we finally get a house I can really do some decorating!

Max's Blessing Weekend

Max was blessed by his daddy last Sunday and we had many of our family members with us. First the Marshalls (minus 2) came to spend the weekend with Max...
Aunt Naomi loved holding and playing with him.
Aunt Maxine had fun feeding him. Then my momma and Jeff came to see Max and show love and support. They treated us all to a delicious dinner on Saturday night!

Then Sunday came and Max's godfather, Ian came along with grandpa.
The blessing was beautiful.
So many friends and family came to show their love and support. We had family who drove 2, 5, and 7 hours to be there. We love our family so much. We will never forget this day.
This is our little family. What a dream come true. I couldn't possibly ask for more.
Of course little Stephen was there for his cousin. Little buddies!
Max and Grandpa. Who's who?
Who's that hot lady? Grandmother? What? No way!
