Max = 9 Months!

I can't believe I've been writing these Max updates for nine months already.

I can't believe this wonderful little guy has been HERE for nine months already.

This has been a BIG month for Mr. Max!!!
Crawling . . . standing . . . eating "real" food . . . a tooth!

But one thing hasn't changed . . . he's still as smiley and happy as ever. :-)

Have I told you lately how much I LOVE this little man???
(And yes, apparently he IS still little . . . so much for my estimating the last few months.  I was about a month ahead, apparently!  Still only a smidge over 18 lbs. -- 25th percentile.  Only ONE pound ahead of where Lucy was at nine months, which shocked me!)
But little or not, he is the sweetest, happiest baby boy!
I am constantly amazed by how well he "goes with the flow" in pretty much every situation you can think of.
Church, restaurants, dance class, shopping mall . . . nap, no nap, on schedule, off schedule, teething . . . it really doesn't phase him!
I am one lucky mama, let me tell you!

It's been amazing to watch how quickly he's gone from a scooter/roller to a crawler . . . to a SPEED CRAWLER!!!  He is so funny to watch!  It's like a baby deer on ice -- all fours just scrambling a million miles an hour, but not necessarily at the same rate -- and as a result, he ends up in a face plant often! (which doesn't seem to bother him one bit, by the way!)

He's also just started pulling himself up to standing -- though he doesn't stay up for long yet!  He seems pretty content just motoring around on his knees for now, so I don't anticipate that he'll be walking anytime soon (which is perfectly fine with me), but then again -- I guess you never know! : )~

I will say, it was a little more tricky getting these photos taken this month . . . my subject kept crawling away!!!

Ah, the dear ol' laundry basket . . .

Even though I don't think he's grown a whole lot in the past month, that laundry basket does seem to keep getting smaller, doesn't it . . . ? : )~

That first one still kills me . . . I can hardly stand to look at it.
Maybe a little more so this month than most . . . it's gonna be a rough month, y'all.
I'm headed back to work in exactly two days.

While part of me really is looking forward to teaching my sweet kindergartners again -- I can't help that my guts are in a knot and my heart is crying.  Leaving my kiddos so that I can go spend time with OTHER kiddos feels so wrong to me in so many ways, but after spending so much time considering all things . . . I just feel that in the long run, it is better for me to keep working.

Praise the Lord that I can work half-days only . . . that I work two-and-a-half minutes from my home . . . that my children are able to stay in their home with family who loves them while I am away every afternoon.
And just think . . . how fun will it be next year at this time when Lucy is preparing to go to her first day of kindergarten WITH me!??  Not many moms get to do THAT.  (Though I'm sure that it will have it's own set of challenges, as well - haha! : )~

I'd appreciate your prayers this next week, friends!
I'm sure things will go smoothly with the transition, but extra prayers can't hurt! ;-)


  1. Oh friend.
    I feel this with my heart.
    I went back when my Anna was three months old, only worked two- 8 hour days a week and my mom was watching her and STILL cried each day for two weeks!
    But how exciting to have Lucy in kindergarten next year.
    I can help you with a shoulder to cry on next fall.
    Oh wait, you got this!
    Big hugs and love going to you tomorrow. :)
