Merry Christmas to all!

Hey, the snow is taller than Max!

Snow in the backyard!

First cereal on his first Christmas!

Poppy got him a barn for Christmas!

Yay for Christmas!

This was Grandma Kay's gift, and he promptly fell asleep on his frist ride.

I was surprised how much he enjoyed opening presents!

Max loves his great-grandma!

Max with his Pop!

He was so mesmorized by all of the lights and sounds at Chicago O'hare

Taken before we left, I looked much better than 14 hours later when we arrived in NC :)

We had an awesome visit in North Carolina with all of Zak's family as well as my dad. It was so great to see everyone again, and for Max to meet his Uncle for the first time. We had a little difficulty getting to NC because of a snow storm, and we beat the big Kansas Christmas blizzard coming home by about 4 hours :) Luckily we made it home in time to have enjoy our first Christmas as a family! I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas.

A vist to the Doctor and to Santa Claus.

Obviously, Max loves mama's kisses!

Well, we had a great visit with Santa and the Doctor this past week. Max is weighing in at 15 pounds (51st percentile) and is 24 inches long (15th percentile). The doctor had lots of good things to say about him. Zak and I are really enjoying introducing Max to all of our Christmas traditions! We'll be leaving for North Carolina in a week to visit with family again. Max can't wait ;)

Max turned 4 months old on December 6th!

Here are some pictures of Max at 4 months! Zak and I can't believe how quickly he is growing! He is doing so many exciting things - making fun noises, laughing, smiling, and - sleeping at least one stretch of 7 hours. It is simply amazing! We are looking forward to the holidays visiting family. More pictures and videos to come!
I LOVE this picture!
Having fun with dad at the Christmas Parade
He fell asleep on the way home from the parade
I keep trying to catch a picture of him when he is fussy because he has the most hysterical quivering lip, but every time he sees the camera, he gets excited ;)
