Ok ladies and gentlemen...this is pretty exciting news! BIG, BIG, BIG NEWS!!! Mommy is so thrilled that she said I should be the one to tell everyone!

Are you ready?


Can you believe it? Mom was going crazy! I was pretty happy too! Uncle Jim and the boys were coming over to take us on a walk, so they got to see my big moment too. There was so much commotion even a few neighbors came over to see me! It was soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo exciting!

And the entire time, I was babbling to Mommy. She was so happy and overwhelmed that she couldn't decide to laugh or cry! She is just a lil' in love with me! :) She said this is one of the best moments EVER. Wow!

At first, I fell over a few times and I got very upset because I do NOT like laying in the grass. Yuckity yuck yuck! It feels so weird. But Mommy kept pushing me to try, try, try, and finally I got just the right position and sat there...and sat there...and sat there!!! :) YAY!

Hi Mommy! How exciting is this???

Can you believe it?

Well, if we are going to have a photo shoot ... let's have some fun with it and try out some different looks!

"What you talking 'bout Willis?" (Remember Different Strokes? Isn't that just perfect?)

Or what about this one...
"Don't hate me because I'm beautiful."

And this photo is for the ladies...

Miss Maya, thank you so much for this super fun outfit! Love you!

And Cousin Giavonna, I really like my necklace! Thanks girlfriend!

Mommy, you STILL taking my picture?

And then the boys joined us. Jackson thought we should all get our picture taken together. Mommy was sooo excited to see me SITTING with my two cousins. How sweet are we?

Hey Tom Tom, how'd you get SO BIG? Very impressive!

Look at me interacting with Jackson? I feel like one of the gang!

I think Tom Tom is getting nervous that I might start taking his toys!

And here is me with my three favorite guys! :)

WOW! WOW! WOW! WOW! Oh, Amy! We are so excited and I absolutely love the pictures. And I'm so excited he sat IN THE GRASS! Amazing.

Congratulations! And I have to tell you, those pictures...I want one! Can you send me an email so I can put up a picture of Max in Dylan's room? He wants to hang a picture of his buddy and it would be great to have this special moment on Dylan's wall.

Max~ You're awesome. You too, Amy!


Dylan (and Kristy) said...

One more thing...great comments! The "this one is for the ladies" cracked me up! And he really does look like he's striking a pose for the ladies. Watch out, Dylan. You have some major competition.

Max, you big stud! You sure know how to make your mommy proud. Before you know it, you're going to be up and running, chasing Jackson and Thomas around the yard. Keep up the good work! And way to go, Mom, for being such a fantastic coach & therapist!
