Before Ellie passed away, we took a lot of pictures... I was that Mom! But after Ellie died, most of the pictures were took were of a funeral, a casket and a grave. We still took the occassional picture of little man, but not a lot. I didn't really want to capture memories if Ellie wasn't going to be apart them. It was hard enough to just get through an event, a day, a moment; taking a picture was the last thing on my mind. It seemed like such an effort, and when I didn't really want a record of our pain, it wasn't worth it.
But lately, I've been breaking the camera (and video camera) out a little more. And I gotta say, I kinda missed it! Which is a good thing because I start the Illuminate Photography Class that I won from Deanna's online auction. I am really excited to start! Anyways, I got a lot of good pictures of Maxer this weekend. We were pretty busy running errands and putting away boxes and such, but we had a lot of time to play with our little man too!

Ellie did an amazing job painting the sky for us on Friday evening. The view from our backyard. Thanks Elle!
Tonight while I was obsessively pulling weeds, Dave and Max were "watering" the plants. Meaning Dave was trying to water the plants and Max was trying to water himself! Dave finally relented and just let him play in the water. He was soaked!
|Despite it's appearance, this is actually not a look of horror, but one of enjoyment!|
|Ready to go back in... I love the one dry spot on his rear!|
|We aren't exactly potty training yet, but with Max, all new things take time. SO, we are just occasionally having him sit on the potty ring...|
