What a difference a year makes!

A year ago today, we saw our son for the first time. Of course, we didn't know it was a boy, but we did know that we loved him very very much from that very first look.

Four months old!

Max is 4 months old today. I know I say this every month (and in real life, probably daily), but how has it been 4 months already? He's the coolest little baby, he loves to talk and babble. He squeals like a baby pterodactyl and he makes these hilarious gargling noises. He loves chewing on his hands and just recently started sucking his thumb too. He still sleeps swaddled (mama's too scared to wean him off it still) and still wakes up twice at night to eat. He loves his big sister and when she gives him kisses. Which is basically any time he's awake, it just melts my heart!
He's been almost rolling over from back to belly for about a week now - he turns his legs and torso, but refuses to pick up his head. And at the pediatrician's today, he rolled over from belly to back!! All he wants to do is try to stand, it's the cutest thing ever - he pushes off anything with his feet to get to a standing position!
He now weighs 16lbs and is 25" tall (long?) He got his shots today and was such a trooper, he only whined for the first one and cried for maybe a minute for the second one!

Papa's birthday

I have a ton of pictures from Sunday, but here are just a few of my favorites. Needless to say, we had an amazing time!

Bronx Zoo with friends

On Saturday, we went to the Bronx Zoo with some friends (ok, Irina is really my sister's friend, but she's awesome, so I'm claiming her as my friend too!) and their nephew. We all had such a blast, although I'm pretty sure the seven-year-old Nathaniel got tired of Sasha's enthusiasm about him pretty quickly ;)
They had a pretty cool Lego animals at the zoo
That zebra looks like it's judging them!
Kiddo says "Yup, I like these people!"

Happy birthday to my honey!

Today, we celebrate my husband's birthday. We went out for brunch and I asked for the (absolutely necessary) "happy birthday" brownie with a candle. He warned me that he'd disown me if I did that, but I did it anyway, and I'm still here ;) He did mention something about not going to any restaurants on his birthdays anymore, but we'll see about that! We're having our families over later for a backyard celebration and we're super excited!
So happy birthday, honey! The kids and I love you so much. You're the absolute best husband and father to our kids! Enjoy today, as we celebrate you!

You know, sometimes I think that we're really just 4 little silly kids living together ;)

Sasha likes to dress herself these days - and sometimes she does a decent job!

Some random (but adorable - and no, I'm not biased or anything) pictures.
"Oh, god, this is completely embarrassing!"
"Uh, mom, why does dad have to ruin this perfectly adorable picture with that funny face?"
