Fluffy or Normal?

This morning I made blueberry pancakes, eggs, and turkey bacon. Max was very talkative at the breakfast table. He kept asking if the blueberry pancakes would make him fluffy or normal. I told him they would make him strong. Miriam asked him if she was fluffy or normal and he responded, "you normal." Then she asked him if Malachi was normal or fluffy and he said, "normal." Then she said, "how about Dad?" He said, Daddy fluffy like Grandma." Then she asked him if he thought mommy was normal or fluffy and he said, "normal."

Max and Yoda

A piano played, children singing a duet with their mother playing a viola didn't seemed to stike Max's attention during church today. His focus was a pen in his right hand and a white plain piece of paper that was first used with hope that I could draw a correct picture of Darth Vader. Max face lite up when I completed a face of some weird helmet with lines going directions that I didn't understand there purpose. He quickly pulled the pad of paper from my hands and tried endlessly to make another Darth Vader. With each tick of the clock that was placed on the east side of the chapel Max had added one more Darth Vader to the ever growing drawings that were circled around the helmet Darth Vader I had drawn. Max loves Star Wars Legos and seems to think that Yoda is about the same size as he is. Max words, "Yoda my size mom. Yoda nice mom." I was pleased that today he spent the day playing in his room and not infront of the computer.

A fort we made that Max loves having in his room. He loves to sit in his fort and watch movies on the portable DVD player.

Funny Guy!

Max woke up yesterday with a smile a mile long. His face lite up when he approached me. He said, "I fell off the bed last night it was really funny." I said, "why was it funny? He responded with, "because I a funny guy."

Tonight when I was helping Max take a shower he was moving his hips around and around. He said, "Look Mom." As I watched him move his hips around he said, "I have a hoop around my body."

Max saved his money to buy this helmet. He loves it and wears it all the time. He was so excited to come home from church and put it on so I had to take a picture.

Cute things Max says.

Max has been saying the cutest things lately. A couple of days ago he said, "Mom I live a hundred days and I will live a hundred more. I not die, yet mom. Then last Tuesday we were leaving his Occupational therapy and he asked his therapist if she had a baby in her stomach. She told him yes she has a baby. He responded with, "what did you do with the other one?" She has a two year old little girl. So I guess he thought she threw the other baby out or put her someone where else.
