I Work Out

Max got a new gym.  He seems to really enjoy it!  He is constantly trying to put everything in his mouth, so he really likes reaching for the toys and then trying to eat them.  


We love wearing jammies in the Rude house, and Max actually likes to wear them out of the house sometimes too.  For your enjoyment, here are some photos of Max in his jammies.  (He is way cuter than Jason or I...)

Max got tired cheering on the clones in the NCAA tourney. 

And so begins Max's ducky modeling shoot.

So serious.

Starting to get in the swing of things.

"Are you serious? I don't get paid for this?"

"I haven't seen Zoolander, but I think I will try his modeling face anyway."

Max's 4 Month Stats

Max went to the doctor yesterday for his 4 month appointment!  He was so patient while we waited and enjoyed the attention of both mommy and daddy playing with him while he was up on the examining table.

One of the highlights of the visit was when the doctor asked about tummy time. I got a little nervous.  Max doesn't really like tummy time and we don't really do it all that much...  I was anticipating a major fail when the doctor proceeded to turn him over to put him on his tummy.  But Max really knows how to impress when it counts!  He was up on his elbows just looking at us like "This is what I am supposed to do, right?"  I just love the little man!  And then to top it all off, he started to roll over! The wall got in his way, but wow, way to be a clutch player, Max!

Here are his stats:
Head Circumference: 43.5cm 77%
Weight: 17lbs 12oz 90%
Height: 27in 96%

We are so proud of our little guy!

4 Months!

Max is 4 months old today (as you can see from the picture above, it surprised him too)!  What a wonderful 4 months it has been!  We have our 4 month checkup coming up soon and will update you on his stats, but for now, here are some of his likes and dislikes:


1. Putting blankets in his mouth.

2. When daddy growls at him and kisses/pretends to eat his belly.

3. Being naked, or at least just in a diaper.

4. Laying in mommy and daddy's bed.

5. Lights.  The lamp.  The window.  Anything that is bright.


1. Bottles.  Won't drink them if his life depends on it.

2. Taking medicine.  He is feeling better, but still on the antibiotic for a couple more days.

3. His hat.

4. Being put down.  He just loves to cuddle!

5. Tummy time.
