Growing like a weed.

I have been a terrible blogger lately. So before I start, please forgive me! My goal is to try to be better in the month of June. We will see how well I do with that.

On to bigger and better things, Max is quickly approaching 9 months. He seems to be thriving after our move home with my parents. He is loving all the attention of living with Grandma and Gramps as well as Auntie and Uncle - since college is out for the summer. I have not a doubt in my mind that moving home was the best decision for our family while GB is away. Max has so much stimulation and love that he could never have gotten from just me.

Some of the new things that have happened in our life recently is Max's first ear infection on top of teething. It was not easy, but for all the pain he was in, he handled it like a trooper. And there is light at the end of the tunnel because it is the proud owner of four, yes four, new teeth. Also he has started standing for longer and longer periods of time. He is a bundle of energy and is constantly on the move.
Here is the little man standing. It is not the best picture, but I had to snap it in a hurry. I was so excited to catch it on camera at all. Way to go Max!
I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend. I want to say thanks to all the service members out there - both past and present - as well to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country. Thank you.

Manly men.

His uncle just may be his favorite person in the whole world.

I make my glasses look good.

But I don't like them....

Get them off of me, RIGHT NOW!

Happy wagon boy.

 Just swinging in the sun.

What a glorious feeling!

Enjoying outside!

I am seriously sick of unpacking and organizing my life. So sick of it. I still am not done yet and I have almost been here for a week. I need to get with it. Max and I have taken a few breaks and gotten to enjoy the outside.
Taking my aunt's old car for a spin! Don't worry she was right there!
The view from a walk behind our house!
Breaking in the new stroller!
Enjoying the swing especially beacuse the dogs were close by!

All that is boy!

The past few days I have decided that my baby is really starting to look like a little boy. I love to dress him in "big boy clothes" but it is now more than just the clothes.

He is very rough and tumble as well. His favorite toys are anything he can bang against either each other or the floor to make noise. One of my good friends told me I am going to be investing in a lot of toy hammers. He loves the dogs and being outside. I am getting more than a little nervous about this summer. Max has started to HATE being held down, but being outside = putting things in his mouth that should not be there - think rocks, sticks, etc.

We have been adjusting to life in Idaho the past few days. It is so nice to be surrounded by friends, family, and the most beautiful scenery in the US. :) However, I really am missing the comraderie of my other Army wives. I have decided that one of my goals for this next little part of my life is to not let my friendships falter due to distance. (Not that that has anything to do with "All that is boy" but it is my blog so I can ramble if I want).
