Vacation time!

We're off to our very first family of four vacation - we're heading to Mexico for the week. I'm excited and very very nervous! Traveling with two small children and three thousand bags (and I'm only slightly exaggerating) is completely terrifying. But I'm really looking forward to digging my toes in the sand and watching my kids enjoy the ocean and the sun. I'm also looking forward to getting a pedicure (I've been promised a visit to the spa) and having Max try some new fun foods. And the best part? Spending the entire week with my three favorite people!
See ya when we're back!

Half a year old!!

Today, Max is a whole six months old! Half-way to a year! HOW did that happen? How?? Max is such a big little dude already. He's doing pretty well with sitting on his own; if he really concentrates, he can sit for a good 5 minutes now! He's trying a bunch of different foods (but that's a whole other post) and is doing pretty well with them. He's saying a bunch of sounds already: "ga", "ba", and "da" (just today). Of course his whining still sounds like "mamamama". The teeth have not come in yet (ugh!), but they look like they're just about to. Kiddo's about to go on his very first vacation in a few days.
We had a dr. appointment and our little man now weighs 18lbs3oz and is 26.5" long!
 He's already fighting back, huh?
 Say "no" to baby strollers!

Picture Saturday

Yesterday, we went to Picture People to get the kids' pictures done (Sasha's 4 year pictures and Max's 6 months pictures) And again, I am so happy with the end result (especially for a mall place). We got the yearly membership last time we were there, because somebody - and I'm not going to point any fingers, but will say this: it wasn't me... - just had to have all the pictures they were so good. I think we'll go to the same place for Max's 9 months pictures, but for his year, we'll probably go with a photographer in Brooklyn we've been eyeing. So here you go, enjoy!

So we went to Poconos. Three weeks ago. And I'm just now getting around to sharing pictures, sigh. I do have two kids, you know ;)
Also, I must apologize for picture overload, but I have more than 300 of them, so this isn't even that bad. Enjoy!
Max's first time on a swing - he loved it!!!
 Funny faces!
 My cousin and I with the babies
 Princess Maya
 Cool dude :)
 Max's first time in a big pool!
 The girls chased Z and tried to throw water at him. It was funny and so cool!
 And then Max got his outfit dirty, and cousin Maya lent him her onesie. It was pink. And had ballet slippers on it. The big girls loved it and called Max a girl. And I took pictures, naturally.
