Double Baby Tacos with Extra Cheese!

Max loves it when I make him into a taco with his towel after his bath or shower. Last night Margaret had to use a different towel (she usually has a blue cookie monster towel) so she was in a white towel too. So Max was very excited that we had TWO tacos! And I think Margaret liked it too!

Max Calling Mommy

Max had an apple phone before me! Too bad it gets such poor reception...

Mr. Funny!

Today Max wore his Mr. Funny shirt. I love the Mr. Men! And this one even almost has Max's actual name on it. Woo hoo! Super thanks to Uncle Michael and Auntie Sheena!

Sheep and Wool

Max had a really good time at the Sheep and Wool Festival. He liked looking at the animals. He got to pet an angora bunny, which he really liked. He wanted to get one, but I didn't think Mark was really going to be ok with that plan! We were able to mix it up so that we looked at yarn/knitting/patterns/silk/needles/etc and then animals. So there wasn't a long "boring" bit for Max. He was a little afraid of some of the animals, but was excited to see them. He very much enjoyed watching the sheep dog demos (for a little bit), especially the part where the dogs were running around and around and then the sheep were running around and around. At one point one of the dogs ran right past where we were standing. And those dogs can run FAST! He was surprized but delighted. He's pictured above with Wendy, and with his new toy! I've named her Aggie after one of the dogs we've seen each year at the demo.

Max had been out in the sandbox. When he came in I saw a dark spot on the bottom of his foot. So I said to him, "Max, what's on your foot?" and he looked at me and said "Toes!"

Max makes his shirt true

Looking at Max last night, I just had to laugh. He was wearing his think geek shirt again. And it was filthy! He can't even keep his "I am why we can't have nice things" shirt nice!!!!

Max tells jokes and fixes things

Max told me a joke over the weekend.

Knock, Knock!
Who's there?
Open the door!

He also managed to figure out how to fix the cushions on the couch. My beloved brown cordoroy couch died (when Max jumped on it). So we moved the little blue loveseat down to the living room. The cushions are rectangular, not square. So they have to be aligned properly. We let Max and Nik try. And then I told Max to turn it. And he figured it out. And was so proud of himself! He's a great little problem solver.

He's also been doing very well with his potty training and is wearing underwear all the time other than when he is sleeping. Yay Max!

Max has a fun weekend...

Max holding Margaret in his lap to watch his "movies" as he calls the OK GO videos.

Max after our walk to Giant to do the grocery shopping! He was facinated by the idea of walking to the store instead of driving. We FILLED the basket with tomato sauce and yogurt. My arms are definitely sore today! 30+ pounds of Max plus the groceries adds up!
