The bear hibernates

Maxy Bear fell sleep last night at 7:00pm...and did not wake up until 5:00am!!! Can I tell you how elated we were? Well, at first panicked, then elation.

Mama is hoping that Max decides to do this tonight while Dad travels...crossing fingers!

Another wedding weekend

Yesterday Leon and I had the pleasure of attending Tenh's (his coworker) wedding to her man Derek. What a lovely wedding. Loved the colors, the crowd, the dress - oh absolutely loved that gorgeous dress. You could tell Tenh and Derek were very much in love and we were honored to share in their day.

We left Max with our nanny which meant...bring on the al-al-al-al-al-alcohol. Ha ha. We got to sit at the "fun" table (Table 14..holllaaaaaa!!!!) and definitely had a blast.

Ali introduces Max to Maddy

After Max's appointment today, I was able to meet my friend Ali for a quick coffee so I could finally meet her sweet little 2-month old Maddy. Maddy is SO precious. I can't believe that Max was that tiny at one time. It was great catching up and talking about life as a mom. I love that Ali takes everything with a grain of salt - maybe it's the New Yorker in her, but it doesn't take away from her being a great mom. Can't wait for Maddy & Max to meet again!

Maddy & Ali (sorry for the not-great pic from the iPhone plus Maddy was in action the whole time!)

4 month stats

Max did much better with his shots today than his last  appointment - and so did Mom! :)

I just can't believe how big this kiddo is getting and how fast time is passing. Max loves to laugh now, has rolled over, and is drooling like crazy. He has also found his thumb and soothes himself to sleep with it.

Here's his stats:

Head circumference: 42 3/4 cm - 66th percentile
Height: 25 1/4 in. - 66th percentile
Weight: 16 lbs. 5 oz. - 79th percentile

Weekend Wrap-Up

I know I've been a non-blogger as of late. Really, it's this work thing that crept up on me, and now I am busier than ever. But the weekends bring a different kind of busy - busy socializing with friends. We like this kind of busy better!

Saturday, we attended the wedding of our friend Ray to his beautiful bride Ana. It was a high school reunion of sorts as well. Quentin was the best man and delivered a very Quentin-like speech, always funny. We are so glad for Ray finding his true love and you could tell this was one very happy couple.

Sunday we attended a lunch in honor of Jimmy's bday. Unfortunately, no photos to share because I am a dork and forgot my camera. Happy B-day Jimmy!

Some time with the fam

Took a one day trip to Stockton this past weekend to visit my folks. My uncle passed away recently and although I never met or knew him (He lived in Vietnam) it certainly doesn't make it easy on my mom. So I thought maybe a visit from the grandson could help.

My sister Nga ended up stopping by as well to get her Aunt skills going on. Here she is feeding Max:

Not much else to report except my sleep is suffering between work and an infant, but that just means an extra dose of caffeine in the afternoon :)

I survived

No, I'm not talking about that crazy show Leon and I watch, I am really talking about me. I survived my first day of work, no waterworks as I said goodbye to my Maxy Bear. As a matter of fact, I was so busy the entire day, it helped me keep my mind off of him.

Angie was so sweet and dropped by yesterday to give me a photoframe as a gift so I can put a picture of Max in it to look at while I am at work. I also got a text from Shannon to wish me luck on my first day back. You guys are too sweet! They must have seen me driving in my car last week shedding tears when I first left Max with the nanny! Lol...

Anywho - Max is in tact, I am ok, and I can't believe how time flew by.
