"I DO IT!"

That is Maxton's new phrase and new phase..."I Do it!" He wants to be involved in everything and to be our big helper. I don't mind too much, I think it's great actually. He especially loves to help with Seth...he'll try washing him, feeding him, you name it.

Here is Maxton feeding Seth a banana

The best part is that I can ask him to get me stuff like the phone, the remote, diapers, toys, shoes, etc. He really loves to throw out the dirty diapers. I always put poo dipes in a plastic grocery bag and then toss them in the outside garbage. Maxton has seen me do this his whole life and decided this is one of those, "I do it!" tasks. He goes and gets the bag, while I'm changing Seth and then I get the dipe all tied up in the bag and he walks it to the back door and gives a nice swing and lets her fly...if he is not happy with the landing, he retrieves the bag and starts again (He doesn't realize that I throw them in the garbage can, he just knows I'm throwing them). Once he's happy with the landing, he yells out..."Bye Poo Poo, Bye Poo Poo" then slams the door and give me a high five. If you're ever over after a good poop, I'll let you watch...it's pretty funny and cute. (Isn't it funny how poop is talk about so much when you have small children...it has to be the most common topic to surface during conversation.)

Hey, Tara that's one for the video camera. I'd love to see that on a video blog! Did Max get a new hair cut too? They are just to cute!!

I love it when they are in the helpful stage. Jackson and Madi are both at that stage and sometimes I feel like I can't handle all of the help. How cute that he just throws it out there. Do you have to go out behind him and pick it up and put it in the trash? Those boys are too cute.

What a good little helper. Just wait one day he'll say "Not now mom I'm busy", or "Why do I have so many jobs to do". Little Max is such a sweet tender hearted boy. I'm sure he'll never day those things to his mommy!

Hi Tara, Your blog is great. I think your boys are precious. I remember you being a brat, but I guess you outgrew it. Aunt Betsy

It is so great when they start to help. Your right - your conversations are never the same after having kids. At first it's did they have enough messy diapers, then finally you get to the potty training and all over its all poop talk. Well I'm glad that Max likes to help for you its cute to see them try to be like mom or dad and imitate what they "think" we do.
