Max, I am having so much fun getting to know you! You are such a content little boy, rarely fussy, and usually quiet. You are the most happy on the changing table, and show it with big gummy smiles, happy coos, and wild kicking (I remember what it felt like inside of me, you must have been very happy in utero). When we hold you, you like to arch your back and keep your head up or tipped back to get the best view. You like bathtime and splashing by kicking your feet. You watch your brother and sister as they talk to you and give you attention (unless they get too close or too loud, but even then you put up with a lot). You usually only get mad when we put you in the carseat, and the only thing worse than the carseat is wearing a hat--which always seems to slip over your eyes in the carseat, making you madder! Even in the carseat, you calm down once we start driving. One funny thing: you have grown so quickly, you weigh the same as your 8 month old cousin, Kamry! We love you and can't wait to see you as you grow and learn more!

What a neat post about your son. He will treasure this when he grows up and hears/reads it! Glad you have a happy, easy-going baby. :)

Oh my goodness! What a big boy for 2 months. Zander was that size at 4 months, and I thought he was big. :) What a cutie pie!
