the difference a year makes...

compare the first photo (from 8.14.10) and the next photo (from 8.14.11)...

wow. either millie is shrinking or maxx has GROWN! and i think i know which one is happening due to the pairs of jeans that we have gone through this year. it seemed like every morning when he would put on a pair of jeans they would be too short. so i would buy a new pair almost every other week. and then the next week... too short.

as you may be able to surmise...maxx is home. for the first night in a month! i think millie is happy to have him back. so happy that she bought him a shirt for his birthday that looks a lot like a shirt that she bought for herself at a used clothing store in jacksonville. hmmmmmmmm...

that just screamed out for an impromptu photo session. didn't it?
