He may be young, but...

It is never too early to learn there are consequences for your actions.

Små fötter

How can a creature with feet this cute scream so loud?

I don't wanna hear it!

We wanted Max to know what it's like, so we switched roles and screamed for a while while he had the hearing protection.

Big man in the big bed

Very quick picture, he didn't like it at all.

Fortfarande riktig vinter

We're going on about the eigth week of consistent below freezing temperatures. It's been a fantastic winter. There are cross country skiers and ice skaters galore. Ali is tired of the cold, Leo doesn't want it to end.

What a winter

The most amazing snowflakes fell last night--kazillions of them everywhere. They were all so perfect they almost seemed fake. I wish I could have gotten better pictures, but it was dark and Max was fidgety.

Cost of living

We drove to the US Embassy in Stockholm today to prove to the government that Max exists, at a cost of 1200 SEK ($170). The line to get in starts outside--what is that about? But after 5 hours in the car each way (with Max asleep almost the whole way), our appointment lasted a smooth 15 minutes.


The whole trip was a smashing success, except for one part. How come Leo, Max and I can spend Tuesday through Saturday at the hospital with all of my meals and snacks and much of Leo's food included for a grand total of 340 SEK (about $34), but driving 43 kph in a 30 kph zone (that is only 8 miles per hour over) in front of a school in the heart of Stockholm with no kids in sight gets you a 2400 SEK (about $340) fine?! Ouch.

A rare moment

Max Man took a break from the eating, sleeping, pooping & screaming to remind us that he's not a demon. He now has a few minutes of awake/alert/happy time each day, usually after his mid-morning feeding. He's also become a calm baby on the changing table and has far fewer freak-outs per day.

Härlig Härlanda

Sometimes a ride in the stoller is the only thing that will get Max to calm down, even if it is 15 degrees below zero.

After a few years on the market, she was getting a bit droopy in the rear.

The great escape

I temporarily escaped from my fatherly duties for a few hours in the snow. It hasn't gotten above freezing for a few weeks now and there is no sign of that changing in the 10 day forecast either. 27km @ -13C

En månad gammal

Maximillian is a month old now and we still don't know if he is an angel or a demon.
