Madd Max Celebrate Another New Cohort

In wee baby Chadwick.
Here's the incubator - Liza Mae.
And the future father, Arthur, with the co-hostesses of the event, Elizabeth and Juliette, who planned the suits and saris baby shower.
And the men behind the women - Jim Danger to the left.
 Alison and Brian came in from up north.
Jess was impressed by the actual quantity of saris that people brought out, including this one on the other Jess.  Alex brought out a Hawaiian shirt with his kilt, making it Indian?
Auntie Jamie wore her grandmother's sari.
Marissa, Aarin and Jess all in saris provided by Liza Mae.
2 of which required assistance from these ladies.
Kathleen wrapped her own.
Some of the men - Steve, Keith, Alex, Drew and Sam.
The Dexter Art Department, Andrew, Brian and Samantha with John.
The Dexter Set Dec Department, Sheri and Kush.
And finally, even an East Coaster came for the festivities - MelB.

Madd Max Has a Steady Stream

A steady stream of projects that Mimi has sent once a month - Maddie's favorite morning activity.

Madd Max House Snowball

 Sam was one of the last parents to pick up kids from preschool, where he was told, "You want to take Snowball home for the weekend."  (It appears the teachers may be getting tired of having Snowball at their homes every weekend).
Oscar did not realize there was an additional mammal in the house for 10 minutes. After puffing up, a staring contest ensued.  Oscar clearly won, as after about 5 minutes, Snowball got bored, turned around and lay down.

Madd Max Has Great Summer Sundays

 Where now ELF can swim in the pool and Maddie no longer wears water wings (she took them off soon after this picture).
Family Sunday dinner.

Madd Max Celebrate The Jersey Shore

In shirts from Auntie Kerry.  Max loved the fact that he could pull his shirt over his knees.  Jess is not sure why.

Madd Max Visits The Pet Store

 Where Max was enthralled by the puppies until they got super excited at his presence and could not stop barking.
 Classic pet shop face - "I just want to buy one, not five!!!!!"
 Maddie let Uncle Wills help with the coloring at breakfast.
 A little pre-pancake hockey.
And then some backyard hockey.

Madd Max Have A Last Day

 Playing with cousins, Kristin and Bobby.
 Lunch from Mr. Hero.
And a last cuddle from Grandma.
While it was sad to leave, Uncle Wills made it easier by returning with the fam to LA.

Madd Max Have A Family Resemblance

 Ok, maybe not.
But they are all family, and all hanging out at Grandma's just like Jess did every Christmas with her cousins.

The Scrapper Has A Cohort

Cousin, Aiden, who enjoys spinning in chairs.
 Who plays Kerplunk.
And who throws rocks under the ramp - genius.

Madd Max Have Cousin Love

Nothing like a movie break after a full day with no naps.
C'mere guys.
A little closer.
And a smooch for Sonia.
And a belly rub for Baby Snacks.  Please note, cousin Jeannie also has a cousin on the inside, not pictured.  Grandma is soon to have a total of 7 great grandchildren!

The Scrapper Is A Baller

 Max found a football and asked anyone who would, to play catch.  Here's Biggie.
 Great Uncle Bob.
 Cousin, Bobby.
 Uncle Ant and Bobby.
 Great Uncle Jim.
Maddie preferred her projects and cousins, Kristin and Noelle, were happy to join in.  Noelle purposely sat down right next to Maddie to learn how to make the pumpkins. 
She also drew Aunt Tara with Aiden's help.
