Maxy the Little Yellow Ducky

This is my boy Max in his little, yellow duck outfit that we bought in Branson, MO.  I'm fairly certain there must be some law against looking this cute.

Scrapbooked Max

Scrapbooked Max

What happens when a grandma who likes to scrapbook get's a hold of photos of her grandson?  Scrapbooking, of course! There is a line in the Book of John that goes like this: "Now there are also many other things that Jesus did. Were every one of them to be written, I suppose that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written." John 21:25 I could say, "Now there are also many more photos of Max.  If Grandma was to get a hold of these, I suppose that the world itself could not contain the scrapbook pages that she would create."

Max Close Up

Max Close Up

I had a couple of Grandmas requesting close-up photos of Max.  After much deliberation I have decided to appease them. I hope you enjoy these photos Grandma Roush and Gigi :-)

Max’s First Bath

Max’s First Bath

So Max was only wiped off on Thursday when he was born.  He was starting to smell pretty stinky, and you could still see leftover yuck on top of his head.  So we were glad to give him his first bath on Friday. The nurse started bathing him to show us how it was done.  Then Mom took over and tried her very best.  I wasn't so sure about holding him down into the water, but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would have been. After I had finished bathing him, the nurse showed us how to dry him off.  Then Daddy got to dress him.

Maximus Allen Knapp

Maximus Allen Knapp

At 5am I  woke up for a bit and Amanda told me her water broke.  We did what any expecting parents would do... we went back to sleep. :-) Sometime between 8am and 9am Amanda started to experience pain.  We went to the hospital a little after 12.  From the time her water broke until Max came out it only took 9 1/2 hours! At 2:38pm Maximus Allen Knapp was born! He weighs 3.3 kilos or 7.28 pounds and is 48 cm or 18.90 inches long. I am really proud of Amanda.  She had Max without the assistance of pain medication like she determined.  Right now Amanda and Max are at the hospital...

My Baby Shower

My Baby Shower

On October 14, 2012, Katy Smelser threw me my first baby shower.  It was a blast!  There was lots of great cakes to eat.  Susan Bratcher and Alyssa Murphy had a lot of fun games for us to play. One game everyone had to blow up a balloon and stuff it under their shirt so that they were now pregnant then we had to put a coin in between our knees and waddle to the jar to drop our coin in the jar (representing pregnant women always having to waddle to the bathroom). Oh, and the team I was on won!  We also test tasted baby food - which was absolutely disgusting.  Wow, how do babies eat that...
