This is the Posse. From left to right, Buzz, Woody, Pilot, Tyrone, & Pablo. These people go EVERYWHERE with Max. In this picture, he has them watching Dad mow the grass. I can't remember if I've posted about the Posse before, but the story continues.
The Posse has grown in number from its original size (as seen in the top picture). It now overflows out of the yellow box. It has the originals plus cars, balls, and most importantly...letters and numbers! Don't worry, if one of the 106 letters happens to fall out, Max will let you know! Now the box-instead of just the Posse-goes EVERYWHERE. There are usually toys falling out of it because it is so full, but the box goes to bed with Max, downstairs with Max, to the basement with Max and even out to the sandbox. Never ever try to sneak a few toys out of the box to make it lighter for you to carry from floor to floor (of course, he's not going to carry it)...the kid will know!
Max and Atticus get their pushing toys and chase each other around the room. It is really cute. Max has been so sweet to Atticus lately. We were playing outside yesterday, and Max even went up to Atticus and pulled a leaf off of the back of his diaper for him. Too sweet. When they go to the basement, Max goes and finds the lawn mower (Atticus' favorite toy), and brings it to him so they can start chasing each other.
He loved his cake, but he had an ear infection, so he wasn't too cheerful. The ear infection was a first for us, and after all the sleepless nights, I hope it was the last.
He had cake all over his face. We cleaned him up, but forgot about the nostrils.
He does have some crazy hair.
A little family picture.
Atticus loved opening his presents, but
it was his party, so he could cry if he wanted too.
What you see here is a 1 year old that is 6th% on weight, 25% on height, and (big shocker) 90% on head. Yes, my kids have an excessive amount brains-at least that's what I'm hoping is making their heads so big!
