Max, you are so much fun to watch! You have started using your fists to bat at toys, and you'll hold up your hands and watch yourself moving them. Your mouth and eyes get very round when you are concentrating on something intently. You still love to kick, especially in the bath, and are quite strong. You laughed first for Daddy, and you turn to look at him when you hear his voice or when he comes into the room. Katie and Isaiah love to entertain you, and you watch them intently. Isaiah is proud that everyone thinks you look so much like him (you even have matching dimples!). Katie hugs and kisses you constantly, and you endure her love very well.
I've started keeping your stuffed elephant on the changing table to keep you entertained, and you like to bat at it, hug it, and "eat" it. You love when I sing to you, especially when I maintain eye contact. You have a hard time when you are tired, fussing and flailing crazily, but when I swaddle you and give you your binky you calm right down and you'll fall asleep on your own in your crib. You've gotten used to the carseat and even smile as I put you in.
You are so calm and happy, and such a joy to our home.
