Week 15

Getting bigger every day!
We have done a LOT of tummy time this week, as I noticed you weren't using your arms much at all to support your body. As the week has progressed you have started to spend more time on your tummy and I can see your strength increasing! You love having new things to look at too - so we put all sorts of toys in front of you to focus on.

BEST time of Max's day - bath time with his favourite girl :) He just smiles the whole time

A picture I took of my view down when he's sleeping in the carrier. Little fuzzy head :)
Last week and this week you have been VERY interested in grasping things. Rather than just batting at toys, you now open your hands and gently grab onto things with your fingers.
Last night while we were reading book (and Genna lovingly lent you scratchy baba), you got a hold of our dummy (pacifier) and loved that you could control when it was in your mouth or not :)
Holding on tight!
This morning you were sucking on your fingers and put them in so far you gagged!
Reverse camera on my phone - pretty blurry:( But I was trying to capture how he likes to grasp this flower toy while sitting on my lap. So many colors and textures!!
Genna has not been interested at all in learning to write or read. I figured she'll grow interest in time. But yesterday I caught her in the right mood and we practiced writing each letter in her name, then putting it together. SOOOOOOO proud, she did this all by herself (my example is at the top)!!
She tried writing Genevieve too but wrote the letters so big she ran out of room a the V :)
She tells me now 'he's heavy Mama'
This morning Genna said 'Mama, it would be nice to be married. When I'm 15 I'm going to marry Dadda!' cute :)

Week 14

Cute:) Your new thing this week is spitting ha ha. You have figured it out and think it's hilarious. I call you my little camel :) It's like a fine mist spray - and you do it all the time!

Genna said 'can I be in the picture too?'

Cute shirt but Soooooo not true! He is the drooliest baby ever this week - I can't leave him more than a few minutes without a bib or we need an outfit change!
The hair bow combination Genna picked out for gymnastics

I LOVE it!! (and I got comments from a few people how they were impressed that Max slept through the whole thing in his carseat - attached to the stroller!)

Waiting for our turn at the dentist - I thought they just looked sweet:)

Still a great sleeper in his carseat :)

Before bath I always hold him up to the mirror and he LOVES looking at himself and bouncing up and down! Hard to catch a smile in a picture (as he stares at the camera!) but he LOVES it!

Frozen girl checking out the frozen display at the shops :)

Fun carousel ride

Chubby cheek baby chewing on his fist :)

Spider web girl at the park with Dadda :)
I said to Genna the other evening 'I'm glad you had fun with Dadda today' She replied 'I really did!'
I said 'He loves you very much' and she replied 'He really does' :)
