Sort of. Sam, Victoria and Emma all came over for a late night fiesta. It began with "Bolt," jammies and chocolate chip cookies.

And plays with bowls of goldfish.
After watching ELF and Maddie, digging into their mac-n-cheese with utensils, Max got his big chance, and loved it. He even watched Ellie feeding Maddie, and tried to join in on that action.

At his one-year checkup, stats as follows:
Weight: 20lbs (10th percentile)
Height: 29.5 in (30th percentile)
Head Circumference: 18.5 cm (50th percentile)
The doctor called him solid, said he look like his sister, and that he expected him to be tall but perhaps a late bloomer. And then they high-fived.

One year ago today.
Max got presents from Karol. Maddie not only helped with the opening, but got the added benefit of consolation presents as well.
Then there were cupcakes.
And more presents from Morena for both.
And more cupcakes when Mom and Dad got home.
As a final birthday surprise, Max figured out how to walk through the length of an entire room.
Happy Birthday, Max Attacks!
We love you, and think you're awesome. Way to grow into such a cool one-year old.

Maddie and ELF entertained themselves for about 3 hours without the need for adult interaction... which = hours of adult conversation.

Today when Jess got home from work, Max bore this wound on his arm. Morena had gone into the kitchen to grab the kids a snack. Maddie had just finished cleaning up her toys in preparation to go outside, and Max had begun to pull them all out. Since she knows they need to be clean to go outside, she decided it was time to stop/discipline/assert dominance...

The ice bucket of beer was a favorite with all ages; ELF and Maddie using it to fill teacups that were poured into a teapot and an ice cream truck.
By night, it became an entirely new world. On all sides, including on the street in front of the lawn, there were gigantic illegal firework displays.
Maddie was thrilled, not wanting to even take a minute to change into her pajamas for fear of missing any. The entire drive home was full of discussions that went, "Fireworks! Awesome!... Fireworks! Awesome!"

This was Maddie's first movie since she has been old enough to understand what a movie is. While she did move from seat to seat, which was acceptable since the theater was only 25% full, she watched the entire thing without complaint. The next day was spent asking for, "Woody, Buzz, please."
