Bob The Builder (And Max, The Apprentice Builder)

Max and I received a visit from Granny and Gramps today, and while they were here, Gramps did his usual repairs/fixer-upper projects around our apartment. Gramps has always been a project kind of guy, and since neither Ian nor I are particularly inclined that way (especially with my constant pregnancies and Ian's constant long work hours), we feel that it is in everyone's best interests to let him go to town. Max loves it when Gramps busts out the tools, and has begun actively taking on the role of assistant. At first, he was content to watch while Gramps tightened some screws on our kitchen table ...

... but he quickly decided that Gramps needed a helper, and whipped out a screwdriver to lend a hand. I don't know how much help he actually was (more than me, since I mostly sat at a respectful distance and watched the proceedings), but motherly pride does compel me to inform you that he did get the screwdriver into the correct position within the screw, and that this points to a boy who has inherited his father's fine motor skills.

With the table secure and level, Gramps and Max exchange a manly snuggle and a celebratory fly around the dining room.

Oh my! Max looks taller and taller with every new picture. How tall is the little squirt anyways? I'm sure in no time he will be towering over all of his aunties!!

I'm not sure how tall he is now -- he is due for another doctor's appt. soon, so I will keep you posted on his measurements then. He is enormous, though, in both body and spirit.
