So, I know that this tends to me a common theme of our blog, but our Max is so darn smart! We've been working lately on writing his name. Thought this might be a good place to start with preschool coming in the fall. Its only really been a few days, and so far, its mainly been me standing next to him saying "ok, now make a straight line up, now down, around".....and so on. We were really happy with the little bit of progress we felt he was making and figured we'd keep working on it through out the summer. Well, the other night we really got a surprise! Max was drawing on his magnet board while Stephen and I were watching a movie. All of a sudden Max yells....."LOOK!!!" and sure enough....he had written his name, all by himself, without any prompting or help from us! He was so proud of himself. We all danced around the living room as Max yelled "I did it, I did it!" It was such a fun family moment!!! And, of course, we had to snap a picture!

Mickey Mouse!!!

This past weekend, Max went to "Disney on Ice" with his Meemaw and Pops. Boy, oh boy, did he have a blast! He's still talking about it! If the pictures are any proof, they all had a GREAT time! They got great seats, just off the ice, so Max was close enough to wave to Mickey, which he thought was awesome! He also had fun dancing along to all the great music! And, to add even more "coolness" to the day, Stephen and Max took a "train" ride in the morning (actually the local metro!) just for fun, and then, Max got to ride the "train" again with Meemaw and Pops to the show! How much better can it get for a boy?!?!?
Stephen and I got to enjoy the day just the two of us, and we took advantage of it! We shopped some (my favorite part!) and then hung out and watched some basketball (Stephen's favorite part!) It was a great weekend!!!! Thanks Meemaw and Pops for making Max's day!!!

My baby's growing up!!!!!!

So, most moms have at three years to prepare for all this, but I only got five months! Today, Max went for his screening for preschool. Not, day care type preschool, but actual, school! Everyone was IN LOVE with him! He had them all laughing and they labeled him "the cutest boy ever"!!! He's behind some in most areas, but all things considered, they were REALLY impressed with how far he's come!!!

I wasn't emotional, until they took him by his little hand and lead him down the waiting in a different room, playing the last five months over in my head, blown away by how fast they've flown by!!!

Stephen and I both have pictures from our "first day of school", and though this isn't officially Max's first day, it still a big deal! Doesn't he look so grown up?!?!?!

This past week, we headed to Nashville, first for work for Stephen, and then for a fun couple of days with Stephen's folks. We rented a house in the most beautiful setting near Springfield, TN and had so much fun! It rained the better part of the time we were together, but it didn't matter! Max is a floor puzzle aholic, and his Grandpa Max is his perfect side kick! Just about every time I turned around, the two of them were sprawled out on the floor putting one together! And, Grandma scored major "cool" points for bringing a new car and truck for Max to play with!!! And of course, in true Kull family form, a LOT of ice cream was eaten!!
It was so fun for Stephen and I to get to watch them "discover" all the cool new things he's saying and doing! Sometimes we take for granted just how far he's come since we're with him everyday. But, to see it through their eyes, its awesome! Hopefully this time, there won't be such a long stretch between when we see them next!!!!!
