Max is finally feeling better this week after what seems like the fifth or sixth sickness (say that five times fast) this year. Day care has turned him into a constant plague carrier, but thankfully he’s getting less and less fussy about the whole process from stuffy to recovery. Having recovered fully from my back issues, we were able to spend a little fun time with Max this week (he even got a visit from Nan and Papa!).
I believe this photo explains the sick Max experience better than I could describe.
Later in the week (when he was feeling a little better), the weather was getting nice outside so we decided to let Max out for his first real foray into our backyard. He seemed confused, but ultimately very happy.
Which apparently segued right into the weekend, when Max headed out the door with his grandparents in tow.
He was also terribly disappointed when we brought his big blue ball out.
And, of course, the obligatory grandparent photo…
We had a good time romping around out there, but eventually we had to bring him back in so he could show off some of his other moves. Recently, in addition to taking a liking to his horse…
…Max has also apparently decided that his favorite thing to do is to walk into the kitchen, open up the only cabinet he has access to, and pull out the giant bucket of cookie cutters that Mimi got him for Christmas. He then proceeds to open the bucket and dump all 101 of them on the floor and then leave the scene immediately. We felt it was high time that he learn that they served a purpose other than being able to watch mommy and daddy pick them up off the floor, so…
Then, of course, came the face stuffing.
All in all, not a bad week despite the sickness. Hopefully Max will last more than a week in day care without having another week out, but I suppose only time will tell. You can view the rest of the photos from this week by clicking here. Have a good week, everyone!
