At the home of the very tolerant Greta, who responded with only a quiet, "hey," when Maddie began happily licking the cream cheese block Greta had been dipping her crackers in.Henry preferred the opportunity to pat Max, rather than to parallel play by his sister. Henry and Max do share a kinship - they were both delivered at their respective homes by the same midwives.His sister didn't mind, not when she found out that she could bounce on Greta's bed.

"Don't leave me here! I don't trust her!"Jess pulled out backup, for herself, not the kids, in the form of Mimi's love: strawberry muffins. Mimi had frozen 6 of the muffins that she had made the night before Jess gave birth so not only are they delicious, but they also are full of good feelings.Max was less concerned about their first day as a threesome, and more concerned about why he was hovering.

With Sam heading back to work in a day, Jess was concerned that food shopping with 2 under 2 would now consist of quick trips to the corner liquor store. But before giving up all hope, she decided on a test run with the fam. Maddie would be kept in the cart, and Max in the Bjorn.

And another peaceful airplane ride - Jess read 269 pages in her book - with a layover in Vegas for some quick gambling.
Finally they landed in Burbank. Sam and Maddie met Jess and Max at the baggage claim. Upon seeing Jess, Maddie put her hands out, buried her head in her neck, and patted her back. Jess cried. Then all of Maddie's attention turned to her little bro, and she spent the rest of the day trying to pat and hug him.

Then it was time for evening wear. (Evening wear provided by Great Aunt Renee, who has a picture of Uncle Wills and cousin Sebastian at about the same age in matching apparel.)
The evening wear portion of the evening was followed by dinner and ice cream, and a totally candid family photo.

He spent some time with Uncle Wills, noticing how much more mature he seemed with one week of college under his belt.
Tio Greg schooled Max on the importance of ninja-sharp reflexes.For evading the cold, cold ocean and siblings who want to put you there.
Tio Greg remained skillfully dry, until he arrived at the house where his brothers used the patented, spray-you-with-the hose technique.
