Summer So Far

WATER-we now keep a pallet of H2O in the car because this child chugs all day long
SPRAY SUNBLOCK-super easy to apply and Max giggles when I apply it
HATS-the sun is hot and bright and they protect the adorable face
EXTRA EVERYTHING IN THE CAR-with the amount of beach visits we do, we need to be prepared for ANYTHING.......and EVERYTHING has happened!
WATERMELON-Max screeches when he see's it and will devour a whole melon in one sitting (if we ever allowed it).  When he refuses to eat ANYTHING, we know that he will ALWAYS eat this

We have not slowed down one bit for the summer.  Matter of fact, we have decided to add a move in the mix.  Ya, that is right.  WE ARE MOVING!  Getting the UHaul jam packed, flinging and stuffing our most valuables in boxes, breaking down our enormous bed to move.........down the street......

BUT we get an upgrade for sure and cannot wait to throw our house warming/summer's end party.  YAY!

In the meantime, we are enjoying the sunny San Diego days and hanging out with our close friends.  We have gone to Padres games, Pride Parade, Sea World and the Zoo almost once a week, Suzie's Farms, pool and bbq parties and parks galore.  Maxon is running around (and I mean RUNNING!), experimenting with his limits (and volume level), and communicating (verbally and signing) to the extremes.  It is at a point to where we have to be VERY careful on what we say and  do because not only is he watching and soaking it all in, but he has become our copycat.  No more F-bombs here!

Just a few days ago Tyson and I took an "inventory" of how many words Max can say and we stopped counting at 50.  Surpasses our expectations (and at times, our patience).  I truly blame our passion for books and talking to Max like a regular person, versus baby talk.  He catches on so quickly.  Max's favorite book is Quick As A Cricket, which was Tyson's favorite book  at a child.  We read the book to him on an average of about 4 times a day. And we really are not sick of it.  

With Max also saying "baseball" so early, we figured that a plastic T-ball set would be appropriate.  Little did we know just how quickly he would pick up the ball, put it on the T-ball stand, grab the bat and HIT!  Without being toooooo proud, I AM SOOOOOOO PROUD!!!!  Our little slugger is emerging!

On our agenda today, we are filling it with PARKS!  Tyson is taking Max to the park while Mommy works for a bit and then we are meeting our friends at the park in the afternoon.  Dinner with friends at SoupPlantation and then OFF TO BED!  We are so fortunate to have sooo many accessible kid-friendly activities for Max to take advantage of!
