LOOK AT ME IN THE CART!!! YAY!!!
Yep, that's me! I'm sitting in a shopping cart, how cool is that??? (And seriously, could I be ANY more adorable? Look at that sweet grin of mine!)
I know for most parents this cart ride would not be a huge deal, but it certainly is for us! We are very, very, very excited! Such a big boy thing to do!
We were supposed to have a nurse this morning, but she didn't show up. No worries...I am feeling pretty good today. So Mom and I decided to make a quick trip to the grocery store. On the way in, she asked me if I wanted to try actually sitting in the cart. I said (with my eyes) "sure, let's give it a try!" So Mom quickly sanitized it all down and then I got in...and I did just great! WOW!
Ok, I'll be honest...I did have a little help. I used the bar the entire time for support and for a head rest. But I also looked around lots and enjoyed the view! And of course Mom kept her hand on me pretty much the whole time just to make sure I was ok. But overall, it was ALL me...MIGHTY MAX!!! I'm certainly living up to my name, don't you think? :)
We had pretty much the entire store rejoicing with us! I was looking around and smiling and Mom could not stop smiling either! She was sooooo proud of me! :) She thinks I am truly amazing!
And of course when Mom explained to others why we were so excited, they would be so happy and ask all about me. Mom didn't mind telling our story today because she was so thrilled to brag about me and my latest accomplishment!
Then on top of all this excitement, Mom got a free Starbucks...her favorite! :)
When we went to our car, the fun continued. Usually Mom doesn't go anywhere without her camera because you never know when I am going to do something fantastic. But she didn't have it with us today, but our cell phone was quite handy. We had a little photo shoot with the phone in the parking lot. And of course I got even more attention with that. I am developing quite the fan club in Bellingham!
What a super adventure today! You just never know when I am going to reach another milestone...so exciting! YAY FOR ME! YAY FOR ME! YAY FOR ME! (Can you tell how excited Mom and I are about this?!?!)
