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.
