Max was at a friend's house Monday. They live sorta in the country, so they have a gravel driveway. He tripped and fell. He landed face first onto the sharp gravel rocks. :(

(warning slightly graphic pics!)

I took him into the ER- he got 4 stitches. Total trooper! He was more upset by being wrapped up in a cocoon to keep him from wiggling than he was about the stitches. Hence the sweaty photo right after that was done.
All he wanted was that grape Popsicle the nurses were telling him about as they were stitching him up! Haha!

He hasn't been bothered by or even noticed what's going on with the cut or the swelling/bruising.

Totally looks worse than it is!!!
He's totally fine! We go Monday to get the stitches removed.

Sam won an award this year! Federal Engineer of the Year!!! He represented HHS- NIH (Health and Human Services- National Institutes of Health).

There were winners from each branch of the US Government (including military).

It was held at the National Press Club here in DC. We had a great time!
Sam was very honored to have been chosen amongst a really impressive group of his peers.

Bringing down the house

So this morning Maxwell decided to bring down the house. Or specifically, a corner bookcase.


After I got him calmed down, I put him in his high chair with powdered donuts, M&M's and his blanket and turned on the TV to keep him occupied while I cleaned up the mess. You'd think from his wailing that I had just tortured him.


Couple large gashes in my previously perfect floor.


Mom can't catch a break around here.

It is Pi day?

Well apparently its Pi day. As in the 3.14 pie.


Well I was planning on making pie anyways so hey, it looks like we're celebrating!

We're having chocolate pudding pie and sausage/pepper/bean stew thing.
Smells good and tastes good too!

Six inches

Here's me- minus about 6 inches of hair!

It's a lovely warm spring day here today in DC. Hence my tank top!

About 75 degrees, sunny and a slight breeze.
Can't ask for more perfect weather!
