It's hard to be sad about him getting older though, when he just keeps getting cuter and more and more fun!
And he is still SUCH a sweetheart and SUCH a happy, easy-going little guy . . . (pretty sure I can rest assured that isn't going to change at this point!: )~
And once again . . . no shortage of smiling pictures!
Here's what Max is up to . . .
Until next month, when we have another doctor's check-up, I'm still guessing on his weight.
All I know is, he really hasn't changed much in the last few months, size-wise. He still fits the same clothes, still wears the same size diapers, etc.
(Although with the way he's been eating suddenly this past week, that could be changing soon!!!: )~
He is still ONLY eating purees . . . can't get him to eat Puffs or teething cracks (or even smushed-up bananas, for that matter!) AT ALL without his gag reflex kicking in. I keep telling myself maybe that will change when he gets a tooth or two (as if he's going to be able to chew a whole lot with a tooth or two! HA!).
(Can you believe he still doesn't have a tooth!?! I've been thinking that was gonna happen for two months now! You can actually "see" the bottom two teeth down in his gums . . . they are so close to popping through!)
Another thing that is SO CLOSE, you can see in the following pictures . . .
Little man will be crawling any day now . . . any moment, in fact!
He gets up on all fours, rocks and rocks and rocks, and then launches himself forward into a belly flop!
(Interesting technique, but it gets him where he needs to go!) :-)
He also just started sitting himself up (from crawling position).
I think lowering the crib mattress is first on my to-do list tomorrow.
(Now, if I can just remember how to do that!?)
He hasn't pulled himself up to standing yet, but in order to save myself from worrying myself to sleep every night, I think it's best if I just lower it NOW. Lucy never even tried to pull herself up and out of her crib, but this little guy is much more of a monkey than his big sister!
I just realized I left the sleeping info. off the chalkboard this month . . . probably because it's a non-issue! Haha!
Max sleeps great at night - and still takes 3 naps (totaling 5-6 hrs) a day, too! This guy likes his sleep. (Big sister was/is the same way.) Not sure where they get it . . . I'm not a big sleep lover - and their dad really isn't, either. (Although, he might be if he didn't have to work 16 hours a day!)
Oh, well . . . I'm not complaining. :-)
The laundry basket picture!
He still looks pretty little in there . . . until you see this one:
Thankfully, like I mentioned earlier, he hasn't changed a WHOLE lot the last month or so . . . but (sigh) look at month #1.
Just look at my little snuggle bug!
What happened? And who pushed the fast-forward button?
Annnnnnd . . . now, before I start sobbing uncontrollably, I'm off to work on Lucy's lemonade stand before the big yard sale this weekend! I can't wait to show you -- it's SO CUTE!!!
