On his tummy

Maxx is getting so much better with his head while on his tummy.

He has also started rolling a little bit. He can go from his tummy to his back. He has only done it 3 times for me and hasn't done it since. He seems ready to go from his back to his belly. I am sure he will be doing it in no time.

Here is a picture of Gran Pat, Paw-Paw Bill, and their 3 grandsons (Brandon, Ryan, and Maxx) The family got together on 5/24 to celebrate Gran Pat's birthday which was 5/25. Happy Birthday Gran-Pat.

Maxx v. Rattle


In addition to Baby Joe, Maxx also has a bff named Noah. Noah is 10 months old and so adorable. We had lunch with Noah and his parents, our friends Robbie and Vickie, on Monday. Here are a few pictures.

Welcome Baby Joe

Our close friends Joe and Marisa welcomed their first baby boy to the world early friday morning. Joseph Anthony Rovira, Jr was born by c-section weighing in at 8lbs 15oz and 20 inches long. For those of you who know Marisa, it was a shock that Baby Joe was so big since Marisa is so short. Both Mom and Baby are doing wonderful and Dad Joe is just glowing with excitement. Scott and I went to visit on Saturday and got some cute pictures. Maxx is very excited to have a new friend. (Joe and Marisa didn't find out the gender so we were all very excited to finally know that it was a boy. ) I kept asking Maxx if he wanted a friend or a girlfriend and he said he really wanted a friend to play with. I can't wait until the boys meet. I am sure they will be great friends.

Here is Joe Sr. and Joe Jr.
Oh I just love babies. Now Maxx, Noah, and Joe are waiting on their next friend, Baby Erik. He is set to arrive early August.

3 months!

Hello everyone. Maxx turned 3 months on Tuesday, May 19th! WOW. Time is flying by. This has been a great month! Here are some pics of the cutie. Gran Pat took these pics when she was babysitting on Thursday. She now knows how hard it is too get good shots of this wiggleworm!

He is way bigger than teddy. Check out the drool on his outfit. That is very common now. Love the yawn in the last one. Gran Pat must have worn him out with the camera.

Here he is lifting his head up last week.

We also tested out his bumboo seat this week. His head still isn't quite strong enough for it yet but I think in a few weeks he will be loving it.

Now for his stats!
Maxx now weighs 13 lbs 8 oz!!! WOWZA- that is almost a 3 lb gain in a month. He is 23 3/4 inches long and his head is 16 inches. He got another shot and an oral shot at the drs today. He only cried for a tiny second so I didn't have to cry with him this time.
Some of his accomplishments this month include:
  • Drool- it is everywhere
  • Sucking- he will suck or chew on anything. He loves to suck on his fist.
  • Sleeping on his crib- he sleeps great--through the night most of the time. I am sleeping a lot better now too.
  • Sitting up with assistance- he can now sit pretty well propped up on something or on my lap.

'sigh' He is getting so big!

check out these muscles!

So, in the last post I mentioned that Maxx scoots himself out of the sleep positioner and gets out of the swaddleme in the middle of the night. Here he is in all his glory from 4am this morning

Check out his baby muscles!!!

Moved to our Crib!

Yep...Maxx is sleeping in his big boy more bassinet!!!

I put him down on Wednesday night (05/06) in his own bed. He slept from 10-2. I was a little surprised that he woke up at 2 am b/c he had been sleeping through the night. I guess this will just take a little time to adjust too. I hope he gets back into the routine of sleeping all night long. I don't think Scott is going to like the idea of giving him a 2 am bottle but hey, the nights are his now that i am back at work. Here are two pictures from the big event.

He looks so cute in his swaddleme! When I went to check on him at 2am...he had managed to scoot down off the sleep positioner (just his head was on bottom of it) and he got his entire upper body out of the swaddleme blanket. I have no idea how he does that!

All smiles

Maxx is such a happy baby!

Question: Maxx always has red-eye when I take his picture. My camera seems to be on the correct setting. Anyone have any ideas on how to fix it?

Maxx sucks on his hands and arms all the time.

I keep trying to capture a smile....
