What a little MAN!

Max continues to grow up right before me!  I love this little guy and am so excited watching him become a little MAN!

Lately, Max has been sitting and playing with his toys.  I don't know why this is so cute to me, but it just is!  He looks like a big kid and he can entertain himself for long periods of time!  Win, Win for mom and dad!!!

Max is so excited to be sitting and playing with his fish book!

He loves social situations and can't get enough of watching people and every so often, he will even start babbling to interject his opinion on the topic to many conversations!  The other night we were at my parents house and Max was so busy watching his cousins Hailee and Brody that he tuckered himself out far into the next day!

This past Saturday was Jason's birthday.  I tell you what, in my humble opinion, there is no better man than Jason!  I am so pleased that Max will get to grow up with such a great role model! (and that I get to be his wife!!!)

Our friend Rachael watched Max for us so that Jason and I could go out on a date!  We went to dinner and then to All-Play to play some games!  Our favorite was Wheel of Fortune.  We often play at home while watching it on TV, so it was fun to actually feel the pressure of being in the hot seat!  :)

Happy birthday to my wonderful husband!!!!

5 Months

Max is a little over 5 months and he has been busy!

He has started eating food (don't mind the bib that says he loves his sister. What he does love are hand me downs!)

He also enjoys hanging out playing on his jumparoo he got from his Aunt Heather. And... He has made a new friend in Peanut!

Blessed to Have a Happy, Healthy Guy!

We went to Max's 6 month check up yesterday and he is a happy, healthy guy!  The doctor told us that he could tell Max was healthy just by looking at him!  We are so blessed and so thankful that Max is healthy, continuing to grow, and right on track for milestones at this age.

His stats are:
Head Circumference: 45 cm - 81%
Weight: 20lb 6oz - 90%
Length: 28.3in - 95%

We look forward to seeing Max continue to try new foods and become mobile!  :)

Max is 6 months!

May 11th marks 6 months of having Max a part of our family!  It is hard to believe that our little guy is 6 months!!!  That is half of a year!  He is such a special guy to be around.  His smiles are so genuine and his demeanor is so funny!  He is one little guy who is tough to impress!

Max really loves his dad.  He and Jason will "wrestle."  Max gets so pumped!  He will start to slap his arms to his sides when he sees that Jason is in the mood to fight.  Jason will growl at Max and Max will scream with delight!  I would say this is Max's favorite activity at this point in life!

Max has been eating solid food for a little over a month now.  He started with rice cereal and quickly progressed to bananas, pears, prunes, peas, sweet potato, avocado, and oatmeal!  So far he has liked everything!

On Monday, we will go to the doctor for his 6 month checkup.  I will share his stats with you then!

For your enjoyment here are some photos from the past 6 months:
