What's A Beak For?

"What's up Maximus. You don't seem yourself these days?"
"I don't feel very good, Kooky. I'm teething and it hurts really bad!"
"I'm sorry, Maximus. I wish there was something I could do to help..."
"Well, now that you mentioned it Kooky, there IS something you could do."
"Oh NO...I don't like where this is going, Maximus!"
"Amaaaaaaz-ing! This beak acts as the PERFECT teething apparatus!!!"
"Thanks, Kooky. I feel better already!"

Happy day!

Birds & Flowers

LaLa's Yard

"So I tell you, don't worry about the food or drink you need to live, or about the clothes you need for your body. Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothes. Look at the birds in the air. They don't plant or harvest or store food in barns, but your heavenly Father feeds them. And you know that you are worth much more than the birds. You cannot add any time to your life by worrying about it.

"And why do you worry about clothes? Look at how the lilies in the field grow. They don't work or make clothes for themselves. But I tell you that even Solomon with his riches was not dressed as beautifully as one of these flowers. God clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today but tomorrow is thrown into the fire. So you can be even more sure that God will clothe you. Don't have so little faith! Don't worry and say, 'What will we eat?' or 'What will we drink?' or 'What will we wear?' The people who don't know God keep trying to get these things, and your Father in heaven knows you need them.
Matthew 6:25-32 (NCV)

Is this what happens when life throws you a curve ball?

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord.
“They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
Jeremiah 29:11 (NLT)

Hi There...It's ME, Maximus again. What's new you ask? Well, I have been enjoying my playpen. (Okay, they call them pack 'n plays these days), but my Mom calls it a playpen...and Papa, well...he calls it a baby jail. haha...

What do I call it? F-U-N! I get to spend time looking out the window, staring up into the sky and watching the trees, flowers, birds and all of the interesting things outside. I also like to roll around in it, chew on my blankie & play with my toys. Oh, and I like to scratch the netting and the different fabrics inside. All those textures are SO interesting!

What about you? Did you use a playpen growing up?

Happy day!

Last weekend we celebrated Rob's birthday over at his parent's house.
Rob opened presents...with the help of Mr. Maximus
I love my boys!
Maximus got to eat Grandma LaLa's Glasses
And looked pretty good wearing them too...
He enjoyed a little R & R in the Hammock
Even Panda followed suit

I always enjoy walking around the yard there, to admire all of the flowers & pretty things...

I hope you are enjoying your weekend!

Happy day!

"What are you doing, Maximus?"
"I'm stretching, Kooky...it's part of my daily routine."
"That looks easy enough...I think I'll come join you."
 "Is this how you do it, Maximus?"
 "Ummm, NO Kooky! You're kind of in the way."
"MAXIMUS...your leg is crushing me!"
"Sorry about that, Kooky. Shall we try this again?"
"As long as nobody gets hurt, Maximus."
 "I'll show you one more time..."
"This is how it's done."
"Don't be falling asleep now, Kooky."

Happy day!

Hey you peeps! This is me, Maximus talking - I hope you're having a great Monday. What have you been up to?

I've been rolling all over the place and REALLY want to start crawling. I also LOVE to EAT! I've been enjoying avocado with olive oil & I just had my first bite of sweet potatoes yesterday. It's ALL SO YUMMY!

Happy day!

Chow Time

"Maximus...pssst...Maximus...Hey - MAXIMUS!!!
"Oh brother...what does that Kooky Chicken want NOW?"
 "Maximus, what are you eating? I want to know, does it taste like chicken?"
"Kooky, how am I supposed to know? I've NEVER had chicken before in my LIFE!"
"There's only one way to find out. Hold on!"
"NOPE! It tastes NOTHING like chicken."
"Does it taste like chicken..."

Happy day!

Summer & Maximus Turns 6 Months Old

I know many of you have been complaining of the record breaking temp's across the United States. But for us, summer seems to have FINALLY arrived in our neck of the woods...a little late coming, but we've been enjoying some sunny days this past week.

Sunshine and flowers seem to go hand in hand. I so enjoy the colors, textures & details of God's handiwork. One of my favorite things to do is sit back and soak in the view of these beauties on our patio.

Last, but not least, Maximus is 6 months old today! Wow! Where has the time gone? I love this little guy...

It's after 2:00 am right now and he's sleeping, so I will have to wait to get a snap of him at 6 months.

Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; you formed me in my mother's womb. I thank you, High God—you're breathtaking! Body and soul, I am marvelously made! I worship in adoration—what a creation! You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something. Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you, The days of my life all prepared before I'd even lived one day.
Psalm 139:13-16

Happy day!
