He runs everywhere, dances to any beat and is learning new words everyday. I’ve totally slacked on teaching him signs, probably need to get on that! Jemma signs as she talks most days so perhaps Max will catch on to some of her cues. His most frequent words are mama, milk, daddy, mema (Jemma), water, no, yeah, bounce, moo and many other sound effects/growls/grunts/boy sounds :)
Favorites include Curious George, any book with animals, wearing his rain boots, baby dolls (he cradles and kisses them so sweetly), mama milk, building towers, cars/trains and all the sound effects, Franklin the Turtle, bananas, jumping on the floor mattress while chanting “bounce, bounce, bounce”, piggybacks, helping unload the dishwasher and going grocery shopping at Trader Joe’s. He truly loves just about everything as long as he’s boppin’ along with Jemma and I. The only thing he doesn’t really like is getting his ears cleaned and his hair cut. He has even moved past his fear of the vacuum recently. Although I’m sure he’ll dislike my mentioning it, he actually has quite a bit of fun playing My Little Pony with Jemma ever since Christmas when she got a pony castle and a number of ponies – they’ll spend a long time setting up the ponies and having them walk down the stairs :) I’m always surprised how well they play together.
My amazing Max … Mama loves you to bits and so enjoys spending each day with you! You’re a beautiful light and your heart is full of such sweet compassion, never lose that. I’m signing off now and heading to bed to snuggle you! So blessed to have you as my boy! xoxo
