7 Quick Takes - the "Happy 2 months, Max!" edition

1. Max is 2 months today! He currently weighs 14 1/2 lbs (95%) and wears size 6mo! He is standing on his legs almost unassisted and is scooting on his belly. Uh oh...

2. Max has settled into a pretty great schedule. Without forcing it - simply paying attention to his cues - Max now naps 3-4 times a day (ranging from 1-2 hours each). He goes to bed between 8-9pm and is up for the day around 8am with, usually, only one feeding at night! We graduated him to his crib about a week ago, and despite the fact that I love having him next to me in our bedroom, we all sleep better now as Max is a LOUD sleeper!

3. Our little man is still a mama's boy. He loves to cuddle and loves being in the backpack. Literally the second he goes in, he falls asleep, which makes it great for errand running...

4. He is most happiest when being talked or sung to and loves interacting with people. His smile lights up a room and it's apparent that he simply loves life.

5. Max is in love with his sister. And she is in love with him. The have a very special relationship - one that we will continue to nurture as time goes on. The second he looks at her in the morning he smiles, and she loves being a little mommy to him - wiping his "milk face" and playing with him while he's in his bouncer.

6. He is definitely a little flirt! He will start fussing, like he wants to eat, and the second I try to latch him on, he looks up at me and flashes me the biggest smirk. The trickster! I look forward to this every day.

7. Max used to hate the car - that is until he was baptized. (Pics to come soon...) I think the baptism exorcised an evil spirit out of him, because now he is totally fine when strapped in his car seat!
