We are very behind in blog updates...this is what happens when a child becomes mobile.  There is little time to blog between work, school, housekeeping, and telling a child: "NO- do not eat the cat. No- you cannot eat that onion. No- you should not throw yourself off the couch."

Over Spring break we were lucky to visit France and introduce Maximilian to his family! It was a fabulous week with good weather, great dinners, and lots of exploring.  Here is a link to our album (more picture to come).

A few favorites:

 First flight, sound asleep.

Mami, and the new airplane toy!
Loving Aunt Sophie

Practicing Standing
Crusing the Museum with Mam Goz

 Medieval Chateau avec Grandpere, Grandmere and Papa
Mathilde and Max meet!
I love this face.

Cousin Battle

PJ and Max have started to acknowledge each other...

Hopefully they will hug soon and stop sticking their fingers in one another's nose!

Morning Commute

FINALLY!  Snow!  Makes the morning commute even better.

At night, as well.  Maximilian sleeps soundly with a grin on his lips.

I Love Jack Mayer!

Who doesn't? 

My charming and wonderful Grandfather celebrated turning 80 last week with family and friends- and with pie of course.   Some of you readers may know that I am named after Jack Mayer, and that he was the first person to hold me when I was born.  This is one heck of a man- he has always respected each of us as individuals and encourages us ladies that we can do anything we want, and to learn to do it ourselves.

We had a wonderful family-filled holiday season.  
Below are some of our favorite photos from Christmas.

Max has started playing the ancestral game of peek-a-boo.  As parents, we see it as a fun game and, despite Jackie's recent studies in Educational Psychology, discard Piaget's research.

For our readers unfamiliar with the term, here is a definition:


peekaboo (uncountable)
  1. (games) A game for a small child in which one covers one's face, then revealing it and saying Boo! or Peekaboo!."

Without further ado:

Sit, Max, sit!

He can push up:

Push, Max, push! (But please don't crawl yet...)

He can fly:
Fly, Max, fly!

He can look adorable in his Breton Sailor Clothes:

O' Christmas Tree

The Biger and Sherlock clans went in search for the perfect Christmas Trees!  The Hockett Bros came along to help carry trees and corral kids.

He is a fan of napping with Uncle Kevin:
