A big day!

Today was a big day for us - Max had his first swim lesson at the YMCA and Sasha had a big girl dentist appointment (she's been going since she was 2 but today was the first time she sat in the chair by herself and only squirmed a couple of times!) Max loved being in the pool, which I was not expecting since he is going  through a bath-hating phase right now. He laughed and smiled and "swam" the whole time we were there.

And then to celebrate our little successes we went out for dinner

Eleven months

Max is 11 months old today. So this is the last month post before he turns one! Oddly, I'm completely calm and not freaking out about it - yet? I'm sure there will be days when I'm not so rational about my little boy becoming a toddler. He's crawling all over the place now, we constantly have to make sure the gates are closed. He's still super clingy and likes me to be around him and using me as a jungle gym. He finally cut his 4th tooth (we waited for that one for over a month) and is cutting two more now. He's had his first haircut and looks a little more like a little boy now. He's eating almost everything by now and is still nursing several times a day. He climbed the stairs for the first time yesterday, with very little help from me, it was the coolest thing. He loves to wave (especially to the monkeys on the walls in his room when he wakes up), but isn't very good at clapping.
 I know it's mean, but how cute is his sad face?
He's my little garbage bandit - he opens the garbage cabinet and stands there!

Family weekend

We were busy this weekend. On Saturday, we celebrated my aunt's and uncle's birthdays and on Sunday, we celebrated Purim at my in-laws'. Busy, but fun weekend!
 Sasha adores her uncle Steve, who so patiently and obediently plays with her!
 These are from Sunday:
Love this shot of my dad with the kids :)

An end of an era

Well, Max is officially out of his infant carseat and it's a little sad seeing him as such an almost-toddler. But he has so much more room in the new carseat!
Here's a first and last time in his infant seat:

Long weekend: part II

And now for the baby friends.
