"big boy"

Afternoon at the babysitter's house. Mrs. Paul has Max in her lap and pretends to feed him a bottle

MRS. PAUL: You're a baby!

MAX: No I'm not, I'm a big boy!

MRS. PAUL: Yes you are, you're a baby!

Max leaps up and performs a dizzying array of jumps, spins, and rolls.

MAX: Babies can't do that, big boys do that!

pictures to come soon, promise.

We had a lovely visit from Grandpa's friends (and secret blog readers) Shirlyn and Danell.  They brought lovely gifts for L.I.A. (and hairbows for those who can't tell that pink skirt = girlchild) and a puzzle for Max, who watched as we put it almost all the way together, then came through with the last piece for the win. Thanks ladies!


Max has an eye for photography. An EYE, get it? nyuk nyuk nyuk.
