The big belly's days are numbered
All ready to head in to the hospital
Hours and hours of painful contractions
The epidural finally brings relief
After 2.5 hours of pushing, Dr. Judy prepares for delivery
Welcome to life, little Max!
Keep your nose clean
Happy Birthday and Merry Christmas, Sophie
He's wondering what just hit him
Look at the camera, Max
Everything looks good
Dad's turn to hold him. Big yawn!
Best Christmas gift ever
He looks a little worried in my arms
Off to the maternity ward
He likes sucking on fingers
Our little family
Our home for a couple of days
Max mostly just sleeps
Time to dress him up for the ride home
Don't slap your dad!
Ready to go home
The hospital provided the cute Christmas hat
Mom's ready too
And we're off
His first car trip outside the womb
Karen and David were waiting for us at home
With a big sign!
Crossing the threshold
Karen even decorated our house for Christmas
It looked really great
Max liked it, too
Max's first outing -- a trip to Target
Adeline stopped by on her way home from the airport to meet the little guy
Peter and Joann took the opportunity to meet him for the second time
Sophie's fabulous birthday breakfast. She's the princess, we're all dunces.
The Foley fam came down to hang out with Max... I mean to celebrate birthdays and Christmas.
Opening Max's first Christmas present
Maggie thinks he's pretty cool
