My little piggie

Like I said in my previous post, Max will eat pretty much anything. This is such a change from Zoe who is still giving us a struggle. But, Max is still in his infancy stage and is not fighting for his independence too much...yet. But, if the past is any indicator, I think Max is going to be more like his Daddy while Zoe - that stubborn little princess - is more like her Mommy. We'll see though. Either way, the kids' can't go wrong! (ha ha)

This is a common sighting: Max eating cheerios of puffs. His first flavor of puffs was "sweet potato", just like his sis.

And life is just better if you have good company at the dinner (or breakfast) table:
This was Max's first restaurant meal - arroz con pollo, Cuban style. You know what they say, "When in Rome...uh I mean South Florida..."
And life would not be complete unless Max got his daily serving of train track. It's got have fiber in it, no?

Final - and first - birthday celebration

We visited Granny and Granddaddy and we celebrated Zoe's 3rd birthday for the last time and Max's 1st birthday for the first time.

Zoe just couldn't be happier at the prospect of getting more cake...and presents! Because you know, the poor thing barely has a thing to play with! She got her first Gator cheerleading outfit and wouldn't take it off for hours! The pom poms actually light up as an added bonus and I tell you what, I've never seen a little girl so happy!

Max started eating real food a couple months ago and hasn't stopped eating since! There is nothing you can put down in front of this boy that he will not eat...including cake! He finished off his dinner of peas, mac-n-cheese, banana, cheerios, and bread AND then had a bunch of cake. That's my boy!

Granny and Granddaddy have a bunch of fruit trees in addition to the cows and donk donks. They also have a ton of grape vines. They've never been able to pick them (the animals or rot get them before the grapes are ripe enough to be picked), but this year was different. We spent some time helping them pick their grapes and had a blast! Zoe was taught to only pick the "dark ones", but some lighter green ones got in the bucket. She always learns something about farming when we're there and loves it.

Relaxin', ET style

Watch out Max! She's got that look!
