Week 32 & 33

Opps I didn't realise I forgot to post last week!

pushing on those teeth! He doesn't ever suck his thumb, just likes to chew on them

A Happy Happy guy as always!

Food has been big this week - he won't eat more than a few mouthfuls of puree
But will try just about anything I give him that's not. I feel like he's picky already though! If he doesn't like something he'll throw it on the floor or wave his arms around and yell like 'give me something else!!!'

watermelon was a hit though!

chicken lasagne - he had a few bites, then yelled for me to take it away lol

His other new thing is if something is hard to pick up he'll just bang his hands on the tray until everything flies off onto the floor, sigh! I feel like all I do is mop!

Week 33 - my age blocks won't show that number :)

No length shot this week - too interested in holding his feet :)

Well, maybe a blurry one :)

Happy blurry!

The big news this week is a top (right of the middle) tooth has just started popping out! He's drooling like CRAZY!!!!
He just thinks Genna is the funniest girl ever
Loving his bath seat!! Fun to splash and play with toys
Even when sister feeds him a baby doll bottle ha ha
Spaghetti exploration
He got some in!
The aftermath!
He's loving some of the 'bigger' baby toys this week too - especially things he can bang on and make noise
At the library with big sister. We went to preschool story time this week (Genna was a star - participating in everything and even went up to the presenter afterwards to sing him another version of the song he sand that she knows from school:) We also went to baby bounce at the library this week - all songs and rhymes for babies - Max loved it!
At the park - we've started going on nice afternoons to the park down the road after his last nap and before dinner - a nice outing!

He even enjoyed going on the slide with me! (last time I tried a few weeks ago he cried!)

Playing the memory game with me while Max naps

It's been a BIG past 10 days for Genna. Last Thursday she decided she didn't need to suck her thumb anymore (she has done it to put herself to sleep since she was 6 months old). I said great! Once you haven't done it for a week, I'll paint your fingernails (she is DESPERATE to have painted nails -but that has always been the deal). So we made a sticker chart, and it has been a struggle for her to get to sleep (taking an hour to an hour and a half to fall asleep and lots of 'I can't do it'). But she did it! We're on sticker chart number 2 this week and hoping that if we do this for at least 3 weeks the habit of NOT sucking her thumb will stick! We're so proud of her will power - just awesome:) This is the bright pink color she picked out :)
Singing lady - made up this song :)
And we celebrated 15 years of 'M&M day' (our celebration instead of Valentines Day). We consider it to be our dating anniversary. So happy with my gorgeous flowers!
Last night - Mohawk! A lady at the shops last week said 'his hair is just like a dandelion!' I agree :)



  1. Grandpa John and I sat here laughing and smiling as we looked through the blog of all the passages of life happening each and every day! Thanks for all of the hard work and time it takes to make this blog. It is very special to both of us, as it allows us to feel like we are with you in special moments. Thanks so much! Hard to believe how fast Maxwell is growing! Seems like just yesterday that we were there with a newborn baby boy! Genna is a doll! So smart and engaging. Love them so much. Hope you have a great birthday week, Monique! Glad our present arrived early.
    Love, Grandma and Grandpa

  2. Happy M and M Day- what is that date? Happy Birthday this week, dearest Monique! Wishing you a lovely weekend. Needed to get my fix and look at the pictures once again. Thanks! Love, Mom

  3. Looking at the blog again and hoping you will include some photos from your birthday celebration! Love you!
    Sounds like you had a great day from your Instant Message on Facebook. Love, Mom
