Maximus and Alexandra.
Doesn't that sound like an epic love story?
Our hope is that our children will love and cherish each other as the best friend he and she is intended to be.
It's looking good so far. Even before she was born, Max vowed not to hit her. He also declared he would teach her to pee standing up like a big boy. Since her arrival, he's offered her his favorite toys and told her to pick one with which to play. If that's not three-year-old devotion, I don't know what is.
And it's not a one-way street. She reacts to him. As soon as he enters a room, she opens her eyes. In utero, she responded to his voice, and now she adores his little pats and coos. The other day he kissed her foot and she smiled. Gas? That's what "they" say. But nothing can take away the delight in his eyes when he saw her response.
Dr. Max could hardly wait to hold her.

Max really wants to play with her, so we're trying to catch her up.
Babies supposedly respond well to black and white images. I couldn't find the cards my mom and I made for Max, so I made some more. Look at her! She seems to enjoy studying.
Plus, she has hair! I have a baby with hair!

And I'll close with my favorite photo of Alexandra so far. How adorable is this outfit her Aunt Lisa and Uncle Brett gave her? I've ordered these pics from the hospital, so kindly ignore the sheer ghetto-ness of the imprint reminding everyone that the photo was for web-viewing only.
