Our cousins came for a visit!

We went to the park together...
took a bath together...
ate together...
and played together.

Yay! Baby #3!

Who's the big brother now?

This was the 8 week ultrasound. Everything looked good, and we heard a strong heartbeat. We're 11 weeks along, and the baby is due on November 19th. No morning sickness, thank goodness!
Max at 28 months
Atticus at 11 months

"car"

Turn up your speakers and listen close! Atticus can say "car". He LOVES to play with the cars. Of course, that is another one of the many toys that Max doesn't like to share. Atticus will pick up a car and crawl around with it saying, "car" the whole time. And if you say "car", he proudly holds one up for you to see!

Rain, Snow, Sleet, or Hail

The kind of weather doesn't matter. Max will go anywhere in any temperature to play with his "reggs". (That's eggs for those of you who didn't get it.)

We pulled out the walker and Atticus took off!

Atticus' hair is really coming in.

Max is finally getting a mouthful of teeth. Four are coming in now! Well, I guess he's only 2, so we haven't been waiting that long. I had big plans back in January to post all about our potty training, but obviously I didn't. Our first week was spent living in the family room next to the little portable potty, so I just didn't make it upstairs to the computer. But, all that is to say that Max has done great! After 2 days of nakedness, then 2 days of undies only, then 2 days of undies and a shirt, we finally made it to full dress. We did live on the potty in front of the t.v. for a week, but the end result was a potty trained little boy. I was so glad. I think he was just ready, and he's always been one to go right on into the next phase of his life without looking back. Two weeks later, he didn't even want diapers at night. He really has done remarkable, and I can only dream that every kid of mine will be that easy. He's had a few accidents, but the last one was in February, so I think I can officially say we are there. The only downer is that he still can't pull his pants down by himself. So, I do join him for each and every bathroom trip.
Atticus is sitting outside of Max's room, banging on the door, and waiting for Max to wake up. It's not so much that he wants to play with Max. He just LOVES the toys in Max's room, and it drives him crazy when he can't get in there to play. Look close-Atticus has a bruise on his forehead-compliments of his brother.
