New Year - New Little Boy (or so it seems)...

As usual, time has gotten away from me, and I have failed to update the blog with new videos. Needless to say, we have much to share! Max has finally learned to stand solo for several seconds at a time, enjoys riding his little car around the house, bolts up the stairs if he gets a chance, and has finally sprouted a tooth (at 11 mos, 1 wk). He is turning into a little boy before our eyes, and it is so much fun.

Only a few more weeks, and we'll have a one-year old on our hands. Unbelievable. It is really hard to narrow down which videos to post. There are so many with lots of small wonderful moments. But here is a variety from Christmas and the new year.

In KC, we experienced a "once every thirty years" snowstorm over Christmas. When we arrived home from our travels, we tried to give Max a little taste of what that really means. As you can see, he wasn't the biggest fan, but it is still cute.

Here is Max opening his first present at Grandma and Grandpa B's house. This is a very abbreviated version. It takes a LOT longer than shown.

Here is a longer short version of presents at Grandpa and Grandma Ruocco's:

Max figured out quickly where presents were at Grandpa and GG's house:

Here is Max tooling around at home on his new Little Einstein spaceship car. Not only does he enjoy the wheels, he also likes to take the little people off and play with them all over the house. He even hid one in a kitchen drawer.

So there are the awesome adventures that ended our Bean's year. Now, on to 2010 and almost year two. Whoa.
