What a week!

This week was the first week that Max went to daycare. I think it was 10 times harder on us, the parents, then on Max. In fact, I know that was the case. Here are a few pictures to document our past week.
Here is Amber and Max enjoying the sunshine last weekend.  Max actually kept his hat and sunglasses on for the entire outing.

After our nice walk, Max reviewed all the paperwork for daycare and deemed it unexceptable that he have to go.  We gently broke the news to him again, that this was for the best and that he would really love it, we promised.

Then to Max's surprise, he was welcomed home after his first day of daycare with a cookie bouquet from Ama & Ampa.  I think that is when he realized this whole daycare thing wasn't so bad, as long as he got presents when he got home.  He was mesmerized by the bald baby cookie.  He ate that one first.  Then he promptly proceeded to pass out on the couch. 

Phew, what a week it was.  But all in all, we did well, I mean Max did well. 
Let's just hope he doesn't expect cookies everyweek from here on out for going to school.

Goodbye Max

Well, that's it. It's over. My 100 days are up. On Monday I go back to work and Max goes into daycare. The time flew by so fast. I am going to miss our days together. I know he will be fine. He loves being around other children. It is me I am worried about. I got so used to having him around.

Teething Bites

For a little change of pace here is some footage of Max being a regular little pita, (pain in the ass) Amber's word, not mine. It's not his fault really, his third tooth is coming in and this one is proving to be a real doozy. It breaks my heart to see our little boy so upset and frustrated. But it also, for some sick sadistic reason I don't fully understand, kinda makes me laugh.

Max is 8 months

Today our baby boy turns 8 (months)
He used to keep us up very late
Our little guy Max
Never lets us relax
Now he sleeps through the night and it's great. (for now at least)

Head, shoulders, knees and camera...knees and camera

Last weekend, we spent almost the whole day on Sunday in our PJ's.  Correction, Amber spent almost the whole day in her PJ's.  Regardless, here is how we spent a few minutes of our wonderful Sunday together.  Playing a game that we like to call - What will Max think is funny and then promptly try to destroy if he gets his hands on it?
First is was a knee, then it quickly changed to the video camera.  Hope we have insurance on the camcorder.
