A Visit From the Gillettes!

Well... 2 of them anyway! Kimberly and Quinn came to visit in the last week of April. We had a wonderful week chasing Quinn around and watching Max reach a very fun milestone - rolling! The boys are so much fun together as they are interacting more and more. They share toys and smile at each other. Max began to look for Quinn whenever he came downstairs or heard his voice. It was very cute to see them becoming great friends!

The week they were here Monticello was putting on their production of Aladdin and we got to visit with teachers and the students that neither of us have seen in months. It was fun to see the kids perform and shine on stage. The show was fantastic, as it always is.

It's always wonderful to spend time with Kimberly as I miss her very much. Life around here just isn't the same since she moved, but these visits are so wonderful and I feel very much like we're still able to foster a relationship between the boys. We were discussing this trip how we know we'll always be great friends and how our boys (and other children) will grow up knowing that they've been friends all their lives and how special that bond is. We feel so blessed to have the Gillettes in our life. We love Pat too, even if we don't get to see him as frequently!

Here are some pictures of the boys having fun!
Quinn is so much fun!
"Hey, Max - pay attention!"
Of course the swing had to go in the mouth.
Look at them having fun!
Kim took some great pictures of Maxton :)
And we both tried desperately to take a good one of the two of them -
still didn't get the perfect shot. Oh well... maybe next time!

Kim and her cutie!
He's such a good walker!
Me and my cutie!


Hopefully we can go visit them soon!


7 Months

Even though we're halfway through his 8th month I still need to do an update on Max turning 7 months old! Now I have to remember what happened in his 7th month... haha!

First off this is the ONLY month that I haven't weighed him since he was born! I'm letting go a bit - hehe :) That being said, I think he's a little over 21 pounds. He's in 9-12 month clothing currently but I think he'll stay that way for awhile. His rate of growth seems to be slowing finally :)

Max has begun eating a wider range of solids. His favorites are peas, pears and yogurt. He also love to munch on Mum-mums, which are these little rice crackers that he can hold and munch himself. They are the perfect entertainment for him so we can enjoy our meals - especially in a restaurant!

Max also popped out his first two teeth this month! April 14th was when he got his first tooth, his bottom right and the bottom left poked out a little over a week later. It was pretty rough going until they were both through, but he's a much happier baby now. I'll be enjoying that until the top ones start coming in.

Sleeping has been much better this month as well. We worked with the Ferber method to get him to sleep in his own crib for longer stretches of time. We're a much more well rested family now and all very appreciative of that :)

Here's our little cutie a little bit after he turned 7 months old:
