EXTRAVAGANZA: that sticky little grinch!!!

well, i was pregnant.
9 months pregnant.
so that pretty much encompassed my life for january.

during which time i learned to bake bread.
which later gave me food poisening.
i think...
had a baby sprinkle,
not a shower.
 put the tummy table into full working order.

started crocheting.
so as to fully live the life of pregnancy nesting.
although i still have 50 granny squares sitting somewhere in my basement.
then i scheduled my elective induction.
just b/c i didn't want to be pregnant for 41 weeks again. 
 and at 39 weeks gestation,
she graced us with her presence.
 it was beautiful.
she is beautiful.
7lbs. 14 oz.
18 inches
little miss max she would be.

and last, but certainly not least, our little bieber fever turned 2.
he was still not speaking.
just grunting and pointing.

but oh boy,
has he made up for it now.
and i quote,
"mommy, you be rudolph, i be monster. now i whip you!"
i did not feel like doing a review.
it sounded like something i did not have time for.
i can't tell you how glad i am that emmy got me to do it.
it really is getting rid of that sticky little grinch.
don't forget to link up, starting @ 10:30pm!

I totally forgot that he wasn't talking much then... He just wanted to do it on his time obviously. Oh that makes me almost sad that Max is going to be a year old soon, makes me remember how fast it goes and that Ryder won't be far behind her.

So glad were willing to go along with my
Crazy idea :)

My almost two year old says some words but speaks fluent baby Swahili. He is starting to parrot our words back to us. Time once again to watch what we say.
Thanks for the recap idea--It's good to look back and see where we were.
