We had a family outing to the Bergen County Zoo. Mr. Maximillian does not yet understand that some creatures may pose a threat. He likes snakes and snakes seem to like him.

Some proof that Mr. Maximillian has the ability to occasionally sit still and read his books just like pappa said he should.

When I walk I get so excited that it's hard to...walk.

Max's first Brooklyn brunch

Max is conquering the city of New York one borough at a time: The Bronx yesterday, Brooklyn today, Queens tomorrow (all by driving via Manhattan), and word has it that Staten Island has an excellent kid's museum, so that will probably happen in the not too distant future.

Cruising through Home Depot

Mr. Maximillian's wagon is a big hit. Parents stop us and ask where we got it. Kids shout "Look! Look at the baby in the wagon!".

Now that we are soon-to-be home owners, we have a list of things to check out in the home improvement stores. The bathroom needs a new shower head & an exhaust fan, we'd like to replace the front door, and there is the minor job of building a garage/workshop. And while the ground is all dug up, why not bury the utilities and upgrade the electrical service? We'll also need a lawn mower, snow blower, garbage cans, yard tools... I hope we're borrowing enough money.

Feeling better

Max is still not 100%, but he's well on his way to feeling better.

On the house front: We signed the contract this morning and it is now with the seller's attorney. We might be under contract by the end of this week!

Max liked playing with the dish washer at our place in Göteborg. The fetish continues here in Nanuet.


On the house front: We are meeting with the lawyer tomorrow morning to go through and sign the contract. That means turning over our first hefty check!

Första förkylning

Mr. Maximillian Wendell woke up this morning with his first cold. He's a bit cranky because of it, but still a little sweetie. He and Ali chauffeured me to my first day at work.


On the house front:

The inspection went well. There were some minor remarks, nothing major, no surprises. The inspector & one of my colleages (who has built a few homes) were impressed with the condition of the house and the quality of the renovations. The paperwork has been sent to the lawyer, our interest rate is locked in and we've gotten a quote on home owner's insurance. We are getting closer and closer to a done deal!
