saddest picture ever
Our poor little guy got his first fever, first ear infection, and first bout with bronchitis. It's been almost 2 weeks since he came down with a fever (102.5 to start), the doc diagnosed it as 'an undetermined viral thing'. His fever went down in a few days but instead of getting better, poor Max got increasingly fussy. We found out he had an ear infection and bronchitis but once again, instead of getting better with the antibiotics the doctor prescribed him, he continued to get worse. Turned out, his antibiotics weren't helping and he was prescribed something stronger that will hopefully bring back our happy boy. The doc also had Perry give him some albuterol via nebulizer to help clear and relax his little lungs. Needless to say, it's been a rough few weeks for all of us.

Today Max ran up to a ball and said the word "ball" for the first time. He threw the ball and said "ball" two more times, clearly. He hasn't done it since.

He has also been saying momma and dada for awhile, has said doggy, and can do the signs for milk, more, and no more.

Happy 1st Birthday Max!

Max had two celebrations for his 1st birthday. First grandpa Joel came in for his actual birthday, and we had Carrot Cake (which Max enjoyed sans frosting), and opened presents.

Then 1 week later, Aunt Jenn and Uncle Scott hosted a first birthday party in their condos common room. It was a perfect space and a bunch of Max's friends were able to join and run around with him. Uncle Jerry and Aunt's Jesse and Gina came all the way from San Diego for Max's special day!

Lots more pictures on our flickr page and on Jenn's picasa page
