I was inspired by our photoshoot yesterday, so I grabbed my Max and put him through it again. Despite his first case of the sniffles, he was a trooper!

Happy Halloween everyone - more on our adventures tomorrow!

Just chillin

Max & Tank - BFFs

Max & Hank Fall photoshoot

Yesterday Brett & Angie stopped by for some brunch and a photoshoot of our boys. Angie played photographer while I made a goof of myself trying to get the boys to smile or stay still. I am sure my neighbors think I'm a crazy woman.

But look! It was all worth it - thanks Ang! :)

Will is 1!

This afternoon we headed over to the Hyatt's for Will's first birthday party. All the kids were dressed in costume to celebrate, and there was even a mini pumpkin patch in the backyard. So cute. Max even matched costumes with Will - they were both lions. Happy birthday Will and thanks for having us over!

5 months old

Yesterday Max turned 5 months old. What a different kid we have on our hands! He's rolling over (though better from belly to back, than back to belly), talking up a storm (not "talking" but ya' babble), recognizes his name and his parents' faces, found his thumb, tried some rice cereal and bananas (thumbs up for the cereal and thumbs down on bananas), reaches out for Tank, pays attention at storytime, and still LOVES his baths.

I LOVE this kiddo :)

Max is a talker

Shannon and Garrett stopped by on Saturday for some vino and convo. Well, last time Shannon was over, Max had a lengthy conversation with her. Saturday night was no different. Is this boy a flirt already?

Do you know what today is?

It's our anniversary...ANNIVERSARY! (I may be aging myself with the Tony Toni Tone reference)

Well, yesterday was actually our 6 year anniversary. Last year we celebrated staying in Half Moon Bay and I was a mere 5 weeks pregnant. This year we were back in Half Moon Bay as a family. It was wonderful weather and we enjoyed showing Max his first glimpse of the Pacific. I can hardly believe how fast 6 years went by. The one thing that has not changed is my love for my hubby :)

Look at that fish!

Halloween practice

Max is practicing his costume-wearing skills for Halloween. Can you guess what he's going to be?
