7 Week Stats

Max will be 7 weeks old tomorrow! In being with this little person and watching him grow, we love seeing his personality emerge. His days go pretty much like this (and, yes, in this order): eat, smile, poop, smile,, smile, poop, smile, get the picture. Here are some other "stats" about our boy:

~just like Avila, he LOVES being talked and sung to

~he is already in size 3 diapers. To give you a perspective, Avila just moved up from a size 4

~Max is definitely a mama's boy. Of course he loves Michael and his sister, but he always snuggles in under my neck for lots of cuddles. (now that I think about it, maybe that's because I have all the food...)

~he now weighs over 13 1/2 pounds

~he is happy anywhere except for the car (that is until I trick him with a binky...)

~if he keeps growing at this rate, his eyelashes will be longer than Avila's sometime next week

~he's a little flirt! Smiling seems to be his favorite pastime at this point - even managing a few laughs and lots of "coos" (every time Max makes a noise, Avila runs to me and says, "Mama! Max cooed!")

We love you little man! You bring so much joy and completeness to our family and we can't imagine life without you. We love watching you grow up and can't wait to see what type of person God created you to be.
