the story of MAXX...a SPECIAL OCCASION

I'M FIVE NOW AND I'M TAKING CONTROL OF THIS BLOG (nonnie said it was ok)

i was going thru nonnie's computer and......
OH MY!!! you are not going to believe all these pictures are of ME!!!
(she has these under her favorites... but aren't they ALL favorites, nonnie?)



CAME OUT JUST A HOOPIN AND HOLLARIN..



...and still yelling (i think this is where i BLAME PAPA...) they even got me a shirt!



when i was born i had these (well according to nonnie and mom) "cute" little elf ears



and this fold at the bridge of my nose



...but they tossed me in the dryer and POOF...everything ironed out...



...mommy made sure that i knew my daddy's voice before i got to see him..(he was way far away when i was born!)



then i got to meet him nose to nose when i was two weeks old!



although he had to leave again...and wouldn't come home again til i was 6 months old...

i did have some fun furry friends to watch over me though





it's all about the hair...NOBODY TOUCHES THE DO..BUT AUNTIE KALEIGH!! (just wish i had some!!!)



I AM a handsome devil aren't I...





I was even featured in my own print ad..(well it was for a DANDY CAUSE!!!



how could anyone resist!!! (and it made my daddy's homecoming soooo special!!!)

oh yes....i AM a star!!!



...THEN THEY DRESS ME FUNNY...(oh i know this is going to haunt me in my teen years...although the girls could swoon..."oh look how cute!!"



...my name is M-A-X-X...but they've called me their little PUMPKIN...(i don't look anything like this!)



and they put me in weird hair..



although THIS may have it's BENEFITS...



YUM!!! AND I HAVE TWO HANDS TO EAT THEM FASTER!!



My epicurial tastes have evolved thru the days...



..now we are talking...and look i can do this MYSELF!



ALTHOUGH...my toes are kind of connected and available most anytime!



just gotta take off those socks and hide them someplace to get at them!



hmmmm...where did they GO?

my journey in this world has been ever changing...

...they plopped me on this green stuff and it feels weird...didn't know i could move about yet..so i just sat...and did that whole touchy feely thing with it..



daddy calls this a low crawl...I'M MOBILE!!!!




i did learn how to move about on these two feet!!

didn't know nonnie was taking my pictures as i dicovered i could pull up on her table!



and when i saw that she was WATCHING me...look how proud I am!!



first standing...



then WHOA! I CAN GO!!!!! catch me if you can!!!



..i'm a diehard packer fan...



OH SAY IT ISN'T SO!!!


I know how to use a wrench...(it's great for getting peoples ATTENTION!



ROBBIE gave me bowling lessons...



and daddy has given me a driving lesson...



...my family all piled together..(GOOD THING I'M ON TOP! WHEW!!!)



Went to get all spiffed up just for this occasion...(like i said before...ONLY AUNTIE KALEIGH TOUCHES THE DO)



...what occasion you might say?...



I TURNED FIVE!



NO, MAXX, YOU ARE TWO!!!(WELL IN LITTLE BOY YEARS...AND HAVE YOU SEEN ALL THESE PICTURES? IT SO SEEMS LIKE I HAVE LIVED ALOT LONGER!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!



i have a BIG UNIFORM TO FILL...and now daddy is off serving his country again...and i will change alot while he is gone..but i will get to talk to him on the phone and see him on the computer...(i LOVE TO PUSH THOSE BUTTONS and i KNOW he knows what i am typing!!! LOVE YOU DADDY!!!)



thanks for visiting my nonnie's blog and sharing in my life so far...

it's been alot of GIGGLES!!!



SMOOCH!
