Blogging and Praying that I never forget these days . . . .

Max's Busy August

Max has had a very busy August.  He started off the month by beginning a Preschool class at a local church.  This has been stressful for Mommy, Daddy, Max, and anyone close to the family.  It has been a big adjustment and we are still "adjusting" (to say the least).  Max really enjoys his class and teacher.  He loves all the new stuff he is learning, singing, and drawing.  Each week if the student is good and their star stays on the wall they get in the treasure box.  Max is very proud every Friday when he brings home his treasure box treat.  Along with the changes he has found new friends and loves calling them all by first and last name.  It is so cute!  I posted some of his work and one of his adorable new songs.  With the knowledge he is getting he is also having to learn to live on someone else's schedule.  He is not use to being so structured.  I know it is good for him, but the scheduling has been his biggest enemy.  Learning to potty when told, learning to eat at certain times, going to school when Mommy is at home, and being expected to absorb all the new info.  Whew!  It has led to some whiny moments, but we will survive! (I think . .)  Also this month we have started back to soccer and swimming. I will post some of those pics at a later date.  Jay is his soccer coach this year and cousin Tristan is on his team.  He is thrilled with his upcoming soccer season.  At swimming, he moved to a different class with a new teacher.  His previous teacher moved over the summer, but he is loving his new teacher and seems to have made that transition without a bump.  Our little man is somewhat BUSY these days.  To say the least he is sleeping fabulous at night, goes to bed much easier, and most nights stays in his bed.  YAY!

Mary Kate's 7mo

Okay, so I am behind at getting the seven month high chair pic up on the blog, but I was waiting on purpose.  Right?  Yea, I wanted to put what all she has been doing in the last 2 weeks on the entry.  Yea.  Right.  Anyways, here is our little sweetheart and since she had turned seven months she is on the go!  She is crawling and moving where she wants.  Last week she was in the living room and Jay went upstairs with Abby and Jack . . .they heard something in the kitchen . . .it was Mary Kate who had found the magnets on the fridge.  While I was home one day I left her playing in the living room to go get ready and she followed me to the back bathroom.  She is very proud of herself.  You can see it in those happy blue eyes.  This morning when Jay went to get her out of the crib and ready for church . . . she had pulled up and was standing waiting on him.  She is growing Too Fast!  She is also FINALLY beginning to "enjoy" foods.  She will open her mouth when she sees the spoon coming at her and will holler at you if you take too long for the next bite.  It is really funny (unless you are in a restaurant) because she squeals for each next bite.  We are all three having so much fun with our little girl.
