Today I gave Max a bath before we headed over to our Playgroup at Club 21.
I put him in the crib to dress him and I couldn't resist taking a few photos of him. He is delicious. Here is my favorite one:
Yesterday a few gals from Mom's Club went to Shane's Inspiration for a playdate.
This park is amazing and the story behind it is so incredible. Read a little bit about it below:
In 1997, Catherine Curry-Williams and Scott Williams lost their son, Shane Alexander, to Spinal Muscular Atrophy (Type I: Werdnig-Hoffman Disease) only a few weeks after his birth. Had Shane lived, he would have spent his life in a wheelchair. Because of a physical disability, Shane would have been denied one of the most fundamental rights of childhood: the right to play independently with friends and family at neighborhood and school playgrounds. This realization encouraged the Williams and family friend Tiffany Harris to turn a tragedy into a vision that resulted in Shane's Inspiration... a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of children with disabilities.

Here are some photos from the day:

And Max after a big feeding of 8 ounces of formula. That's what he's been eating for the past few days now at each feeding. SHEESH he's getting bigger by the moment. Sleeping a lot to catch his breathe after all the food.
Hope you enjoy all the love and joy that is surrounding you today. I know I am! I can't believe how blessed we are to have Max in our life. It's so easy to look at the negative - in general - in life - instead of looking at the positive and be grateful. All I have to do is look at Max and my heart bursts open and I know all is good in the world and in our nest.
Gotta go feed Max. He is stirring.
