Super Max and the baby....

There is NO doubt that Max loves his baby sister.  Usually the FIRST thing he asks when he wakes up in the morning is "Where's Mayzie?"  He likes to know her whereabouts at all times.  He simply can NOT get enough of kissing, hugging, or touching her.  It doesn't matter what I'm doing, nursing, feeding her a bottle, sleeping, holding her, wahtever, he won't take no for an answer.  It's as if he can't help himself, the compulsion to touch her, love her, be near her is too much for him.  And while it's sweet, it can get rather frustrating at times.  But, that's neither here nor there.  I'm here to show you these pics I took, 'cause they cracked me up.

Maggie is a TOTAL "mommy".  She insists on holding Mayzie, burping her and just bossing everyone else around about taking care of her.  Max is always asking to hold Mayzie, and his timing is not always great.  So, on the rare moments he GETS to really hold her, he cherishes them.  One morning Maggie had her, and when I came around the corner, this is what I saw:

Apparently the goggles were key in his super power abilities to hold her.  I don't know, it just cracked me up.  That kid is so funny.

But this scene is most typical....Maggie hovering.  Telling Max what to do, giving him tips and such on how to hold her, oh and just waiting to snatch her away from him.

Which she of course did.  Would you PLEASE look at Maxs face here.  It is the story of his little life.  Big Sister ruining everything for him.  Poor kid.

But, I must say, Maggie really is a great big sister to the baby.  And Mayzie truly loves Maggie.  When Jere called me yesterday (I had to go somewhere without the kids) and Mayzie was screaming her face off (which she only seems to do for him) and he didn't know what else to try, I asked him if he'd let Maggie hold her yet?  He said no, so I told him to give her to Maggie.  And apparently Maggie held her and things were better.  And Maggie doesn't seem to mind that she loses a chunk of hair just about everytime she holds Mayzie, because Mayzie grabs on and doesn't let go.

So goes another day in the life at the MVP's.

Baby bums and Maxs glum,
