In preparation for McDuex, we've been slowly moving our office out of the upstairs office, and creating an office nook downstairs in what we refer to as 'the extension.' We finally went out and purchased a REAL desk, and spent most of the last two weeks putting it together and getting the new office space organized. While we still have a while to go before it is finished, it is nice to have a dedicated office space on our living level. And, it actually feels like an adult space now (minus all the toys surrounding it because it happens to share a space with Max's "playroom"...the more the merrier, I say!
Which leads me to the explanation of why the photos I am about to post are so old. It was because, in the process of moving everything, we had to do a major overhaul -- the cable company had to come out and split new cable to power the modem downstairs, I had to relocate all the upload cables, and of course, I had to organize everything before I could move on to another task! No multitasking for me!
Next on the agenda will be to take some photos of the new office space. But that will have to wait for later....
So, here are some pictures that I have been meaning to post for a few weeks now:
Visit to the zoo -- despite the cold weather, we braved a visit to the zoo, and had a BLAST. The inside exhbits are SO much fun -- there is so much to DO at the zoo in the winter! Max's favorites are always the big cats (LION, CHEETA, TIGER!) and the aquarium (he loves comparing the big and little fishes, the crocodile and the sharks). He makes his momma proud!
The nice thing about going to the zoo, is it almost ALWAYS wipes him out...he actually had a fabric imprint on his nose from falling asleep like this!!
Max was helping us put the new desk together by using the box it came in as bed. He asked us to tuck him in! What a silly boy!!
Storytime with daddy. This child LOVES books. He has most of his books memorized, and recites them along with us while we read them. This amazes me, especially when he does it after we've read the book only once or twice! Apparently, my mother likes to tell the story that this is how she discovered that I was actually reading and not memorizing the story -- she went and got some new books from the library, and I started 'reciting' them before we had even read them once! He even read the entire story of Red Hat Green Hat (or whatever it's called) to me the other day. I was pretty impressed -- although I don't think you can really consider it reading since the book just reiterates what it shows in the pictures...Max's favorite books right now are: Where the Wild Things Are (which he refers to as 'rumpus rumpus rumpus'), The Giving Tree, The Bear Snores On and anything with Clifford the Big Red Dog or Curious George. He never tires of reading the same book over and over again (although WE do!!)
