I was (or shall I say, we were)in labor. We were watching Borat and Ty had to pause every 5 minutes or so to start the timer on

first steps!!!!!

Our hero has made the leap to toddlerhood! Today when I picked him up from the babysitter, he was cruising as usual across the furniture. He stopped, let go and teetered a little, then took two whole steps before crashing into my arms. Way to go Max!

technical difficulties

we're still here! but the camera is on the blink again. but in honor of Max getting ready to turn 1 (!), here is a picture for comparison.

well, dear readers, it's over. Max is officially weaned. Tonight, he even took his formula (sigh) in a sippy cup and put himself right to sleep. Thank God for daddies. The first night, when Max woke up crying around 1 am, I sent my trusty partner in with strict instructions not to let Max see me. It worked, maybe too well. I thought Ty would soothe Max to bed and come hang out, but the next thing I know, my two favorite people are snoring together...

Max went down without a peep tonight. See you in the morning, sweet boy! Glad you don't hate me!

On a physiological note, thank God for cabbage. I feel a little funny with a garden salad stuffed in my underthings, but it works! This morning I felt like I got the Pam Anderson special at Dr. Jimmy's Drive-Through Plastic Surgery Emporium. Now I feel better. I am also drinking sage tea like it's going out of style. Was it ever really in style?

The nucleus is back intact. Welcome home, Ty!!! At first, Max tried to play his daddy like "uh, do I know you?" But that didn't last long. And yes, I am jealous of Ty's Florida tan. Makes me look pastier than ever!

To all the new mom celebrities

Stop biting! I know you took one look at my blog and said, "If I name my kid Max, maybe he'll be as cool/smart/handsome as Max Malloy" but listen, ladies... Enough is enough.

(I'm talking to you, Christina Aguillera and Jennifer Lopez)

This time last year

I weighed as much as Max and me combined, because I was Max and me combined!

Shout to Marraine Tasha for keeping me on point. May she be a better blogger than I...

"you think I'm going to sleep?"

a whole world to explore
