Our little Mensa Candidate

Look! Max figured out the whole concept of dipping his chicken nugget into catsup on the first try! I'm calling Mensa next week. I hope the previous post won't diminish his chances...
Well, maybe I got a little carried away. Eating the bowl probably diminishes his chances quite a bit. ;)

Max loves cheese - and had his first haircut

Max had his very first haircut on December 1st. So traumatic for the mama!
What a little trooper. He sat on dada's lap and we took turns using the electric shaver. All he wanted was to look at the shaver!

Max REALLY loves cheese (just like his dad and grandpa), and especially likes his 'cheesy noodles'. They get all over when he has them for lunch. And he likes it that way.

I think he must get that from his father's side of the family...

Christmas is a-comin'!

This is a self-portrait. Not only is it VERY difficult to keep hats on Max because he rips them right off, it is difficult to get him to smile at the camera when I am just holding it out at arms length, so this is a remarkable photo (if I do say so myself!)

I got out all of the holiday decorations on Sunday. We decided this year to have a small live Christmas tree up on the fireplace mantle to keep it away from Mr. Stickyfingers. So far he hasn't had too much reaction to all of the decorations, probably because he is so busy practicing walking with his baby walker. What a busy fellow he is.

The latest in the Meier household

Here is Max looking oh so cool in his jean jacket, cargo pants and little blue shoes. He has been doing much practicing of his walking with his baby walker. All of the practicing is starting to pay off! He took his first steps this past Saturday for Daddy. Way to go, kiddo!

Here are Max and Daddy doing some bonding after Daddy got home from work. Max loves having his 'Booka's' read to him!

After reading the booka, it's time to wrastle!!

For a while there, it seemed like all Max did was eat and sleep. Now, for the past week he is doing all of these new things - starting to walk, saying new words, getting taller (again), figuring out how to play with different toys in new ways, and much more. It is starting to feel like we have a little boy instead of a baby! Bring on the next round of 'babyproofing' the house!

Halloween Monkey

Max the monkey. Look at the ears sticking out from the hood!

I wish I could put videos up on the blog because it was SO cute watching him crawl with his little monkey tail swinging behind!

Max's Birthday

OK, so I'm playing catchup here, but these pictures are so cute I had to include them! These are of Max playing with his first cake. I say playing because he was more into squishing the frosting through his fingers than putting any of it in his mouth.

Halloween costume photos are next!

Getting started...

This blog is all about the Meier family... and most of our news and photos for the past 15 months have been all about Max! Speaking of, here he is playing in his pool in the backyard this past summer. He had his bath almost every afternoon out there and had a great time!

Will add more entries as I can.
