Hodge Podge

Today I have a hodge-podge of things to share - hope you don't mind:)

Yesterday Max and I went to the dentist - it was Max's first visit. I was really nervous about how he would act, but he was just perfect and it opened my eyes to just how big he is getting. Growing up...it's happening before my eyes and I can't stop it, even though I think I would if I could. But the young man he is growing up to be makes me a proud mama. Not sure how it's happening...but pretty sure it has not much to do with me and alot to do with my Savior:) We both left the dentist with smiles on our faces, new toothbrushes, and no cavities:)!!Here is a picture of my sweet boy at the dentist, it's from my phone so it is not great...Also, wanted to share some things Max has said lately:
1. The other day Max was in the bathroom washing his hands, and was talking up a storm...even though he was in there alone. His Uncle Clay yelled from the living room "Max, who are you talking to in there?" Without hesitation Max answered "God!" It made me smile and I asked "What are you talking to God about, Max?" He said "Just talking." I hope he continues to talk to God as he grows:)

2. My family and I were sitting at the kitchen table eating supper one evening when my dad asked Max if he had taken a nap at the babysitters (Trinia's). Max said that he had. My mom said "Do you cry, kick, and scream when Trinia makes you take a nap, like you do here?" Max put his hands on his hips and said very calmly "GUYS - Trinia doesn't know I act like that!"
Hmmm....I guess the fits only happen with mama:)

Ok - time for another vote! This time I need your help with deciding on a wedding cake. Obviously, it will be a small cake because the wedding is only family - but it comes in the wedding package so I thought I would pick a cute, little cake. Which do you like better?

#1...

#2...
or #3...(with only the top 2 layers)

Honest opinions - let me have it:) Thanks guys - you are all making this so much more fun than it already is:)!!

I like number 2 because it's different, but you would expect an answer like that out of me! ha I'm pretty sure I saw them making that cake on Amazing Wedding Cakes or Cake Boss or one of those shows! b/c one of the flowers fell off & they had to do an emergency fix at the last minute! haha

Jen said...

This is soooo much fun. Love it. Thanks for sharing. I am voting for cake #1 bc I think it just fits you perfectly, altough any of them would be great.

Love the little Max story. It reminds me of Alexandria. She is learning the lord's prayer and always asks what a hallow is. Aren't kids great!
