Hello everyone, it's me...MIGHTY MAX.

Not feeling all too mighty today, but I am hanging in there. Mommy took me to the doctor's yesterday and they added another medication and increased my inhalers. Hopefully that does the trick. The visit was not fun at all though! The doctor was checking in my nose and accidentally scraped the inside, so I started bleeding. Then she went to examine my ears. I really, really do NOT like when someone touches my right ear and so I completely freaked out. Well then that ear got nicked as well and started bleeding a lot. It took my mommy a long time to calm me down after that. :(

I continue to be very congested with lots and lots of coughing and gagging and with increased O2 needs. The nights are the worse time of day for me. Fortunately we have been able to have some nursing help. There is no way mommy would be able to pull this many all nighters!

Hopefully I will on the mend in the next few days. Unfortunately I will have to miss my playgroup tomorrow. Bummed about that! And I'm not sure I will be able to attend any holiday celebrations...but there is always next year so no worries.

In the meantime, I thought you all might want to see some photos from the past few weeks. (There are a million more, so maybe we will post more tomorrow!) Don't want to brag, but I must! I am getting more and more adorable every day!!! :)

ENJOY and best wishes for a wonderful 4th of July celebration!

As everyone's favorite "funky monkey," I got lots and lots of new monkeys for my birthday! Look at how cute this one is! Thanks Ang and Cody!

Grabbing my feet is my new favorite thing! Mommy loves that I have reached this milestone...PLUS I look super cute doing it!!!

Do you want to just eat me up or what? Mommy was practically crying when she took this photo because I look so sweet! Plus, check out the meat on my bones! I am getting bigger and stronger every day!

Look at me holding my head up! WOW!!! :) This has been a long time coming, so we are very, very, very, very proud and excited!!!

Yah Max!

What a great job holding your head up! One day you will begin to crawl and Mommy will be so excited I can probably hear her all the way from WA to WV.

You are going to love playing with your toes. You will have fun putting them in your mouth. Mommy will probably Purell them:-). You are so sweet sleeping. I wish I were there to hold you.

Hope you continue to feel better.

I have to say that when Larry saw him at Sabina's the other night he was VERY impressed with the rolling. As we all are, of course! I just want to eat up the chub on him!
