Chloe 5 months

This past Sunday, Chloe turned 5 months old. I can't believe that she is 5 months already. It has gone by way to fast. Why can't they just stay in that newborn stage forever or at least for a long time. Anyways, she has gotten so big. She rolls all over the place, loves to talk in her own little language, loves to laugh, loves loves her big brother, only wakes up once in the middle of the night, and she is just a great baby. The only time that she really cries is when she is hungry and tired. She is such an easy baby. She can entertain herself which is a great blessing especially because I have Max running around like a crazy man. Here are some pictures of Chloe.

She is so cute. I love her smile.

Max loves to read to Chloe and Chloe loves it.

Gingerbread house

This past weekend, we decorated our gingerbread house. Every year I get a gingerbread kit from Costco because there is no way I will ever make one from scratch. This year was a lot of fun because Max was there to help. He put on all the candy while I frosted. By the end of decorating, half of the candy was gone and Max had frosting all over his hands and face. I love that Max is a little bit older now to help celebrate with us. Everything is always a lot more fun when you have kids to celebrate with.Max dancing to the Christmas music while eating the candy

Every picture that we took of him, he had something in his mouth. He loved the gummies.

Chloe didn't have fun decorating. All she wanted to do was go to bed.

The finish house.

Max loved the frosting especially the green one.

Max Time

I felt like I needed to post about Max because he has been doing some very cute things lately and I have some cute pictures of him. He is getting so big. He is starting to say a lot more words now and understanding more of what we say. He is getting better at catching a ball, doing very well at being a big brother, sleeping in his bed at night and not on the floor. A new thing that he loves to do now is cook with me. Whenever I am getting dinner together, he will pull a chair up and start to help. He his such a good little helper. He still loves his blankets and carries all 5 of them around the house. He also still loves his juice and will not drink anything else except juice, not even milk. The best part is that Max stopped playing with his poop. No more rubbing poop all over his toys, walls and himself. Anyways, here are some pictures of our little guy.
Max loves to play and help with Chloe and she loves her big brother. We have been very lucky because so far Max has been very good to her.

Max loves to play with our itouch and he knows how to play the games that are on it. His favorite game is "Peekaboo Barn." He touches on the barn and animal comes on and makes a sound. I think that is how he learned all the different animal sounds.

I decorated for Christmas over the weekend and got out the singing snowman and of course Max loves these. He played them over and over again while dancing around the house.

There matching Christmas pj's.

Whenever Paul has whipping cream on his hot chocolate, Max gets some too.
