5 months old!
Tomorrow, Max is 5 months old. Wow, I can't believe that it is already mid July - where has the summer gone? We are nearly ready to embark on a trip out west to see our family and friends again - we can hardly wait to show everyone how much Max has grown and changed since April.
A few highlights:
Max's preferred sleep position is now on his tummy! You can imagine our surprise when we discovered this and quickly tried to roll him back over (we were told countless times by doctors and nurses that he should always sleep on his back to prevent SIDS) - nope, he just kept flipping back to his tummy, nuzzling one cheek to the mattress. We have relaxed, and realize that he is just fine - after all, weren't our parents told to always put us on our tummies? We survived.
Although he is not sitting up by himself yet, he sure is getting strong. He is able to hold his head nicely now and can sit up with just a little bit of support behind him.
Max likes to work with Dad! I love this photo - both boys busy in their offices.
He is becoming more and more intrigued with what we are eating. He watches so intently as we eat our meals, and actually puts his hands up to his mouth and opens and closes his mouth like a hungry little bird!
