Growing Up

So a couple of days ago, I was putting Max to sleep for his morning nap. Usually I let him cry for a little bit until I go in and check on him. For some reason that day I went in as soon as he started to cry which I don't do. When I walked into his room I found him like this.
He was standing up for the first time. He has never been able to pull himself up like that before. Now we have to lower his mattress which is always a pain in the butt to do. Ever since that day, he is all over the house climbing on things and pulling himself up on things. He has discovered our DVDs and loves playing with them and he also has discovered our food pantry which he loves to play with all the food. Then later that day, I found Max in our living room climbing on some plastic containers. He his such a little monkey now. Yes, he has discovered his tongue now. These last couple of days he loves to stick out his tongue and we have no clue why.

I can't believe how much he has grown up. He is getting so big so fast. I was going through his clothes and packing up the clothes that don't fit him anymore and I can't believe that he wore some of the clothes that he did especially the newborn clothes. They look so small and I don't ever remember him being that small.

Danville Trip

This past week I was able to make a trip down to Danville to hang out with family and friends. I forgot how much I love going there. It is so pretty there especially coming from the desert. I had so much fun while I was there. Max and I went a couple of days earlier before Paul came, so we could spend more time with my mom and my grandma. While we were there we went shopping, swimming, Monterey, Mt. Diablo, enjoyed the cooler weather and just hung out. Max had lots of fun meeting new people.We took my Grandma to the mall and she bought this hat for Max. It looks so cute on him. Thank you Grandma!

Hailey was so good with Max. She would bring him toys and play with him. She is a great cousin.

Max with his Great Grandma. Thank you Grandma for bouncing Max and playing with him. He just loves you and the wheelchair and the fan in your room.

Max with Grammy Babs. Thank you mom for everything. We had so much fun while we were there and thank you for the clothes for Max.
We decided to drive to the top of Mt. Diablo because Paul has never been there. We got out of the car and it was so cold. It felt like winter, but no it was August.

Max with his daddy!

Max with his Granddad!
While I was in Danville, I actually got to see my dad. My dad flew down from Seattle to spend time with his mom. It was so good seeing him and spending with him. Thank you for lunch.

One of the nights while we were there, we went to downtown Danville to listen to music and have dinner. They had all these fun things for kids to do and one of them was to hula-hop. A guy asked my mom if she wanted to try and she said yes. She actually did a very good job.

We took Max to the park and put him in the swings for the very first time. He loved it. He would just be laughing and enjoying the wind blowing in his face.

We went to Monteray and Max loved sitting in the double stoller with Carter. He thought it was so much fun.While we were in Monterey, we went to the Aquarium and it was a lot of fun. I haven't been there since I was little.

We also went to the beach to eat some lunch and once again it was very cold.

While I was there, I was able to attend Caitlin's baby blessing and I am so glad that the timming worked out. Her baby is so cute. I couldn't stop starring at her and I love all her hair that she has. Caitlin, it was so good to see you and see Olivia. Good luck with her new adventure. It is going to be so much fun. Liz, I am so mad that I didn't get a picture of Max and Will together. He has gotten so big. It was good to see you also. Thanks for the decorating tips.
