Week 11

This week we went to the American consulate to get Max's birth certificate of a citizen born abroad and his passport. They gave him his first American flag too!

Big sister got a treat afterwards for being so good and patient

More plaits for school!

Loving playing on his mat
Face painting at the RSL for school holidays

They had a magic show too - a fun morning out!
HAPPY baby! He has started doing a 6 hour sleep from 7ish pm, then 3-4 hour blocks from then til morning. He seems SO happy when he wakes up - we all are happier with this great sleep!

Cool dude

What's she doing in my picture? ha ha

Fast asleep :)

Super Max to the rescue!
And some videos - trying to capture his laughing/talking :)

Week 9 / 10

Catchup yet again! Some of these first photos are quite a few weeks old, but I wanted to post them anyway :)

9 Weeks :)

Also this week - 2 Months !
Bouncing him so I could finish making dinner! Although this was last week and we now have a better bedtime routine so I can make dinner most nights with him already in bed:)

He LOVES watching  his sister!

Genna has decided to grow out her fringe (bangs) - so we're trying to find ways to keep it out of her eyes as it's just at a shaggy stage right now
 I love my plait! (braid)
Bath time together is FUN! Max has the BEST time. He anticipates it now and gets SO excited. He kicks the entire time and watches Genna with wide eyes. You can tell it's definitely his favourite part of the day :)
Cuddle selfie - he's getting SO big!
Cuddles with Clara, Genna & Amelia
Entertaining with Baba

Where's my hand? He tries constantly to get it in his mouth and it's a slobbery mess when he figures it out!

Or maybe just a finger!

Harder to get a good photo of them now that he's moving around SO much!
Going up to the Opera  House from the parking garage

I forgot her sunnies in the car - opps! Max's first trip to the Opera House!

And the harbour bridge - he slept the entire time!

We went to see the baby proms show 'Bollywood Baby' - it was fantastic! We loved the Indian instruments and costumes and dancing!!
Afterwards we had to go get a correction made to Max's birth certificate (my mistake....) Genna was so patient waiting the lady asked if she wanted a stamp then gave her this - ha ha!

Don't mind the laundry drying ha ha! It was just such a beautiful Spring day we went outside for a bit of sun

Our backyard is a work in progress - but the tiles are FAB!!!

Genna says every morning 'I love you Maxy forever'
She told me the other night in the bath 'Max said he promised not to cry all night and if does good I will give him a medal' Umm yea that'd be nice!
He's such a happy baby.  LOVES his play mat and batting at the toys! He is talking like crazy in the last week or two - especially to Dadda. When he holds him he immediately starts cooing and copying the noises Murray makes.
