Meet the M's

A couple of weeks ago I took Max and Sam to an autograph signing at Safeco Field that the team is nice enough to put on each year for the employees.  

Max was again polite and asked the players, "Please will you write on my ball?" He always followed up with an enthusiastic, "Thank you," as well. 

Here are some of the photos: 

Max met all the players. From Ackley...
To Zunino. 
Brandon Maurer made Max work for his autograph. 
I think Taijuan Walker is just a couple years older than older than Max.
Felix signed a ball...
And a sleeping baby. (Sam was wearing his tiny King's Court shirt)
All hail the King. 
You can tell Raul has five kids. He dropped some knowledge about Max's favorite cartoons, including Caillou.
All and all a fun day for me and the boys. Even if Griffey did try to eat them at the end.

Sam by the numbers

With everything going on in our world, we can be excused for taking Sam in a few weeks late for his 9-month check-up. 

For those keeping tabs on our little man's progress, here are his numbers at 9-ish months:

Height: 28.75" (43rd percentile)
Weight: 18 lbs 4 oz (18th percentile)
Head size: 46.5 cm (77th percentile)

Sam also popped his first tooth, started waving and saying something that sounds like "bye" and began pulling himself up on things. 

Here we go (again)!

First day of preschool: Senior year

Today was the first day of Max's last year of preschool. With two years already under his belt he's now kind of the big man on the play mat. 

Swingin' into month ten

Half boy, half chipmunk

Labor Day Weekend with our little labors of love

Sam's first concert was fun, as in the band named fun, at Bumbershoot. And yes, it was fun, if not a little loud. 

More fun was had in the Bumbershoot kids area and throughout the Labor Day weekend.
