Only read this post if you think Max is also completely adorable, and also you want to hear even more clever things that he has also said.........also

Saturday, I had the privilege of attending Kristina's Meet-n-greet at the Olive Garden.
The lunch was so fun, I really enjoyed meeting some fellow bloggers in person.
I can't wait until we can get together again!

Over the last few days, Max has done some incredibly cute things. (I can't remember all of them because I'm getting older and my brain is filling up, and I just don't have all of the space available for storage in there like I used to, and unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be up to me to decide what I do and don't remember and so I usually end up remembering completely useless information like my friends locker combination from seventh grade, but I can't remember what I ate for lunch today. Or even IF I ate lunch today)

Here are some I do remember. (OK, I only remember them because I wrote them down)

Max comes up to me and points at my chin. He asks "What's that?"
I decide to joke with him and say "I think it's my elbow."
He shakes his head and says "No, it's the part that holds up your mouth."

Max: "Mom, do I have hippos?"
Me: "Hippos? Do you mean like a hippopotamus?
Max: "No, like this!"
(he begins to dance)
"You put your right hippo in, you put your right hippo out, you put your right hippo in and then you shake it all about..............."

I think that Max is quite extraordinary because at age three, he knows his right hand from his left.
So of course I like to use this to tease him.

Me: "Max, which hand is your left hand?"
Mas raises his left hand.
Me:"Good, now which hand is your right hand?"
Max raises his right hand.
Me: "Now which hand is your wrong hand?"

I stand corrected.

Just in the last few days, Max has decided that he needs to use more than one also in a sentence, as in............
"Mom, I ALSO, ALSO, ALSO need you to ALSO get me some milk."
(seriously, he has also said that like also 8 times today!)

And my most very favorite Max quote of the last few days....
(drumroll please........)

Max: "Mom, your hair is messed up."
He then looks at me disapprovingly and says...........
"You also need to have it look better."

I also agree.

I was excited from the title, and the post didn't disappoint!

Also is a very strange word when read over and over. A L S O. Weird letter combo.


Max= MAXimum in cuteness!
