Lucky for us Santa still managed to come to our home even though we have no chimney, live on the 24th floor, forgot to put out cookies and had a house plant for a Christmas tree.
And Max was ready!

He enjoyed opening his stocking,
then was much more interested in all the ribbons and wrapping paper than any of his gifts.
We were able to get him to unwrap a few gifts,
but mostly he just wanted to chew on all of them;)

Jay bought Max "The Dangerous Book for Boys".....It seems that Max already has some dangerous ideas of his own, possibly involving his mom's new yoga mat spray.
Max and Dad have a not so dangerous moment.

Now for some upside-down time.

Max enjoys his new foam blocks from Grandma and Grandpa Baker.
And has already perfected his left handed swipe to knock the tower over while still chewing on a block....what a talented baby;)
He also loves his new Monkey!
Thanks Grandma and Grandpa=)

Max and his friend Shoma are learning about sharing. So far this has been pretty hard for Max...
I like this picture because it looks like they are happily drumming together, but I actually think Max was trying to push Shoma's hands off the drum. We will keep working on the sharing;)

Max is an early riser and, now, so is Dad. We like to play with some kitchen utensils and refrigerator magnets to start our day then we migrate to the computer to sing songs with Boowa and Kwala at It is always invigorating.

Max is a curious little guy.


The annual holiday ball photo. I've got to do something about my lapels hiding my best medals.
