Here is the picture I promised of Ella and her cousin Max, who is only 5 weeks older.

I stole this picture from the Freeds' blog, where his Momma said, "He looks like he could eat her!"

Born April 29, 2009

and is taking a break in the shade.

Angelic sister and brother.

What a handsome bunch!

This was a few weeks ago. Ellie can barely hold Maximus, now.

I've been waiting for some good pictures of Max.
He was born March 24, 2009.
8 lbs., 20 1/2 in.
Son of Jason and Katie Marler Freed, of O'Fallon, MO.

The Big Dog has a Big Pup!

Max is a big, healthy boy. Big sister Ellie can hold him now,
at 10 lbs., but not for much longer.

We put Max and Ella Grace together on a blanket---
he at 10 lbs., she at less than 5 lbs.

What a picture--see above.

This one will be blond and blue-eyed for the near future. Both of his parents have very dark hair as adults, I'm sure his will darken with age.
