Family Pictures!

Ahhh i'm so excited about these! We are so beyond spoiled that my brother is a photographer.  We take pictures more often then we probably would have but I love it!! Especially with how fast our little one has grown.  Last time we took pics just the three of us, Max was so little he was asleep in most of them.  haha. But I LOVE these ones because they're more fall-ish and Max is most definately alert! If you are interested in getting your family pics done, my brother is doing a great holiday special!
13rock Photography, I will have a link on my FaceBook :)
Enjoy... :)

what's new?

Not too much is new here.  Mike just started his second class for the semester.  He loves school now, it's awesome. Now that he has a clear career path ahead of him, he's really motivated and optimistic about school.  It's really nice cause then I'm not as tempted to ask him to ditch ;)
Max now has 2 teeth.  They're so cute, the ones on the botton right in the middle, picture perfect. 
Today, we had his cousins over.  They had so much fun together.  This is Charlotte and she's 5 months older than Max and they're basically the same size, actually he's probably bigger.  Haha.
Anyways, this is boring.  But I had to share these cute pics of Max & Charlotte

just had a slight panic attack...

for two reasons...
reason #1: my baby is 8 months old.  8 MONTHS OLD?! Where the heck has the time gone. He's way too big.  Mike always likes to make it known to me how big he's getting and I just want to curl up in a ball and cry because as most moms.... "want them to stay little.... forever".  But I must admit, 8 months is pretty much fantastic.  He's so chunky and just cuddly.  I love it.  He hasn't quite started the crawling thing yet but it sure is coming.  He will be on his hands and knees and rock for several minutes at a time. 
some new things he's doing:
-his favorite way to "talk" is a really angry sounding scream-grunt-type thing it's actually really hilarious.
-he sits up on his own.  every morning in his crib we find him sitting up.
-plays peek-a-boo around corners and doors
-loves to work on his ever growing thighs (eating) that's not really new though..
-he's such a FLIRT
-knows very well how to hold and tip his bottle to get the very last drop
-his emotions show like crazy, he gets soo excited
-he has his first tooth and one that's about to break the surface any day now. 
reason #2 for my panic attak:
i'm going back to work.  mike and I have decided that a great opportunity has come up for me to work 8 hours a week. (not bad at all) i'll be going back to the gym to work there.  where great commission opportunities are there.  with trying to continue school and have a baby, there has been limited opportunites to save.  when this opportunity came along, we jumped right on it as an opportunty to SAVE AWAY! This morning I got pretty sick about the whole idea of going back to work and leaving my baby behind with loving family.  however, after talking with my mom I feel much better.  This opportunity is such a blessing and I'm lucky that I don't have to work more hours and that this position is so flexible.  I know that this is a huge blessing to our family.  I'll just have to share my little ones chunky legs with my family for a couple hours a week. 

That's all that's new  with our family.  Hope you enjoyed his 8 month pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them.  He's getting harder to photograph.  Such a busy body!
