coloring books + cereal parties

max is big into anything that he can draw with lately. he loves pens, pencils, colored pencils, hi-lighters, and especially markers. after completely covering five pages {and himself} in his awesome scribbles, i decided the next coloring session would be a little more contained.

so the next day, i strapped him in his high chair, tied a full-length bib around his neck, and let him go at it. i even let him color an airplane...i knew grandpa frank would be proud :)

he was in heaven.

it's so much fun seeing his little personality grow and it just about blows my mind that my little boy knows how to put the marker lids on + off.

oh, and remember the comment about max thinking he can live off of marshmallow mateys??

well, here is some proof. he starts out very sweet and innocent...

{isn't it hilarious seeing him tote around that gigantic bag?? it is just as tall as he is. but he does it. every single day.}

...and quickly gets more and more irritated when we don't give in to his every wish and desire:

this is my all-time favorite picture; it's just so classic. he has always been so good at sticking out that bottom lip.
how can we say no to that face??


  1. Oh my gosh, why is it that such small walking kids (like max and Brinley) think that they need to carry the heaviest thing????? I DO NOT GET IT> She runs around with such heavy toys and loves it. She loves carrying her toy bins. Just waiting for her to smoosh a toe, or MY toe.

  2. Haha, I'm laughing so hard right now. Can't wait to see him in a few days!

  3. Oh! That face!! That is SO SAD!! It's hilarious that he loves his Mateys so much!!

  4. Can my little Zayda marry your little Max? Can we just go ahead and set this up :P!! He is such a gorgeous little boy. I just found out that i'm almost 12 weeks along with our second one as well! I can't wait to find out what we are having. I'm kind of partial to another girl since they will be so close, but I will love him or her all the same! You look fabulous, as always!!
