5 months and fireworks

Max turned 5 months old on July 4th.
We had a BBQ outback
and then stayed in because our neighbors next door have fireworks all night so we don't need to go anywhere to see them!
( our entire neighborhood has fireworks so we stay home to make sure our house doesn't burn down )

here is Papa and Jerry out back.

Grandma Marty visited last weekend and Max has a lot of fun with her. We went to the Long Beach Aquarium. Loads of fun.

Our attempt at a family portrait with the camera on timer was pretty hit or miss.....mostly miss....

Grandma DeeDee and Grandpa Rich bought us an Ergo Carrier. One of the BEST purchases to date for Max. He loves being in it and he falls to sleep in about 5 minutes in it. As a matter of fact he is in it right now as I type. Fast asleeeeeeeep. Thanks Grandparents! Click HERE to learn more about ERGO. No Back Pain At ALL. I LOVE THIS CARRIER.

Here is another attempt at a family portrait with the camera on timer......that's our favorite onsie right now - orange and white stripes.

And I couldn't resist this photo. Look at that adorable tush.

Here is a video we took on July 4th - you can hear some of the fireworks banging as we watch No doubt in concert on tv and try to distract Max from the big booms. We were successful - he didn't notice and slept through a night full of loud fireworks so we are happy about THAT!!!

Tomorrow his Aunt Sandy and cousins Stephen, Timmy and Sean will be in town and Max will meet them tomorrow night. Looking forward to that.
Michael Jackson's Tribute event is tomorrow as well. in Downtown - where we have to drive past to get anywhere. over a million people are expected. Should be " interesting ". On another note we are playing Michael Jackson for Max and dancing around with him - he seems to like it. Is there anyone out there who doesn't like MJ?

Jerry and I took Max to Agape yesterday and we really enjoyed it. I heard more uplifting truth in that one service than I have heard in years and years. We plan on going back. Might be our "church" or "temple" it's a trans-denominational church and it's ALIVE. We love that part of it.

This might be a nice place to find Spiritual Community and give Max a weekly dose of Love in a Bigger Broader sense.

Max is adorable and reminds me so much of the little boy I watch 4 days a week, Joey. He and Joey are 4 days apart- he was born Feb. 8th. I also have a son with DS who is 17 months old and he is the love of my life. Check us out at!
Congrats on your baby boy!!!
