We went to the park today since it was 60 degrees outside. Yay! Poor Max...he was going down this slide that was pretty steep and tall. He could only manage to go down it head first with me catching him at the bottom. Well, he went down one time when I wasn't looking and he just ate it! He stood up screaming with dirt and bark all over his face, in his mouth, and up his nose. That is why his nose is bleeding in this picture. When we got home, he wanted a drink. Being a good mom and all, we ran out of milk this morning. So, the only other thing I could give him was orange juice. Incidentally, I've never given it to him before b/c we never seem to have any in the house. So, I told him he could have orange juice, and he replied with, "No, I want purple juice." Poor guy doesn't even get it. I gave it to him and he told me it was actually lemonade. Not the greatest story-but it made me laugh.

Atticus pulled up last night for the first time!

Max was so proud of him, he gave him a little "pat, pat"...
and a kiss.

In between snowy days

We actually got some outside play time. Yes, Max has a purple shovel.

After months of silence...

2 more teeth are finally erupting. We were sure that following Taylor "tradition" Max IV was missing some teeth, but he's got them! Now he has 4 little bottom teeth in the front.

Fun at the pool

After about an hour of watching the other kids go down the slide, Max gave it a try.
He loved it.
You can imagine, from this picture, that Atticus playing with Woody does not go over very well. In fact, since Atticus is crawling but not yet pulling up, Max has already got his game plan going for every time Atticus crawls into the room. First, Max moves his favorite toys to the couch so Atticus can't reach them. He then suggests that Atticus is "seepy" and wants to go "night-night". If that doesn't work, Max does give in and gives Atticus the boring toys. Finally, he often throws toys at Atticus. Sweet Atticus just smiles right back.
