Memorial Day

The whole Memorial Day weekend was relaxing. Since Max was the only child in the house, we were able to have a laid back weekend. Max ate and slept and pooped on his own schedule and we worked around it. He slept a lot. 8 consecutive hours on Sunday night and then an extra few hours after his first breakfast. It was fantastic!

The afternoon festivities were at the Miske house. Max was able to enjoy his first holiday with them. A good time was had by all. Yummy cheeseburgers for me. Cheeseburgers, corn on the cob, salad, and fruit salad for Daddy. And lots of adoring fans for Max. The Miskes also gave Max two super cute outfits with matching bibs and sent along some little toys for Nik and Julian too. The big kids were excited to get something (we gave it to them when they got home from their mother's house) and that helps to keep them from resenting the new baby. We tried telling the other guests that we brought the baby instead of a cheesy pie, but in the end the pie was actually shared with everyone. Tragedy struck my pie at home and it fell on the floor. Luckily it was still in the pie crust case so it is still edible, but it no longer looks like a pie. It is a pile of delicious pie casserole now. I doubt the appearance will stop me from eating it. :)
