My Little Pig Pen

Let it be known, for all posterities sake....I am really, really, REALLY in love with my little Maximus. He just gets freaking cuter every day, and he melts my heart with his giggles and big blue eyes. But MAN can that kid make messes. He loves, nay, he LURVES to be outside. NOTHING makes him happier than being outside. If he even senses a door is open, he runs with all his might for it. 'Tis never safe around here, I am a chasin that boy all the time. He also really, really loves water. Water from any source, it's all good, he just likes it. He will push the handle on the water cooler endlessly, until it's running all over the floor. He loves to play in the bath, lick water off the floor, drink out of Moms water bottle, dump it, splash in it, you name it. But one of his FAVORITE things to do is, play in the dog water. When the kids ever go in the backyard, he beelines for that water. So, one day a couple of weeks ago, all the kids were out playing, and Max was having the grandest of times. I was puttering around the house, cleaning, whatever. All I cared was they were all safe in the backyard and Max was happy. Imagine my surprise and dismay when THIS greeted me:

"Oh hey Mom, you talkin to me?" Seriously, note the one sockless/shoeless side. Soaking from top to bottom. I'm pretty sure he must have dumped the water and then rolled around in it on the sidewalk and grass for a goodly amount of time.

My favorite part is totally the beaver teeth and the "hot" stash he's sporting. Ah man, how can you not love a face like that. hehehe I think it's safe to say, whilst moustaches in general are just sort of creepy and ugly, this kid is NEVER meant to have one. Draws too much attention to those giant chiclets he calls teeth.

But, I leave you with this little come hither smile. He's nothing if not a happy kiddo, especially if he gets to mud wrestle the dog.

Dirt stash and dog lips,
