Probably the cutest picture that exists.

Ok, so you might think by the looks of this picture that Max was happy and in a great mood today... not so. In fact this was one of the fussier days we have had in a while. Tomorrow I am going to try and keep him awake longer in between naps and focus on 2-3 really good naps. I have got to figure something out... This morning he woke up with a really runny nose. Ugh, never ending. I don't know if it is a cold or he is teething. I hope it's teeth because we just got over a cold! So I am wondering if at night he is waking up more because of his reflux, he started to wake more when we laid his bed flat a few weeks ago. So, tonight we put the wedge back in and hopefully the slight incline will help with the runny nose and the reflux. Please... something work!!!!!!!!

So, last night I got some cute pictures of Max eating a bottle and it got me thinking to his first bottles. How small they were, yet they looked so big next to him. How little he would eat at a time, at one point less than an ounce! And how long it would take, there were nights that we would have limit his eating time to 30 minutes. Not anymore!!! He eats about 6 ounces a bottle and in less than 10 minutes. We sure have come a long way!!!

Another trip down memory lane. Max's 2nd or 3rd day taking a bottle (I can't remember). Look how tiny he was... it looks like I'm holding a doll.

Comparing the first bottle, 3oz, compared to his bottle now, 9oz!!

Max eating out of his big boy bottle! He loves to help.

Hope you enjoyed the "scrapbook" moment!

Has anyone out there watched the Office from tonight yet? Michael Scott can't quit!!! Oh no!

Made a really good dinner tonight, and forgot we had plans to go out with Grandma Cathy and Grandpa Jim. It was nice to see them and I know they love to see Max. Thanks for dinner!!! I saved the dinner for tomorrow...

Chicken and potatoes, a crockpot creation. (By the way, all servings are for 2 good eaters:))
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of potato soup
1/2 c chicken stock
2 big baking potatoes
salt and pepper (for Rachel Ray fans "s&p")

Place the chicken on the bottom of the crockpot, stir together soup, stock and potatoes and cover the chicken with them. Sprinkle with s&P, cook for 6-8 hours on low. We taste tested it before saving and it is very good... we will be enjoying it tomorrow!
I told you I wasn't gourmet... it is easy, that is all I claimed!

Long weekend ahead, everyone enjoy yours!

Wow, do I remember watching him eat & having to get that bottle on top of his tongue. He has come a long way! Please get him to sleep all night again . . . Grandma Dee likes to sleep too! But, I also like to rock babies so we'll be fine what ever happens!
