9 months old!

Maxx is 9 months old...well it was actually yesterday!


We have our 9 month checkup today and I can't wait to see how much he has grown in these last 3 months. He is getting so big. He has been super fussy in the evening lately so my attempt to get pictures didn't go so well. Here are a few.





He was more interested in the grass than he was taking pictures.



Seriously, mom, that is enough pictures!



Crawling away from me!




All smiles as he is crawling.

Maxx wasn't a fan of strawberry jello!

Who dat!

Ready for kick off!



Go Saints!!



Then Maxx gets distracted by his toys!!!



At least he was behaving so I could watch the game.


Then he tired himself out. Love this pic of my two special guys!



New hair style

What you think? We are kind of digging the mohawk look!






Sleeping

Maxx loves to sleep face planted into the mattress with his butt in the air.

Good Morning World!

I knew it was bound to happen soon but this am Maxx greated us standing in his bed in his sleep sack. It was precious!!! He was ready to get up at 6 am!









Yogart Bites

Maxx loves yogart bites. Last night he managed to get one stuck in his hair. How fun!

Lots of new things

No pics in this post....just info....

Lots of new things going on with Maxx this weekend.

We moved up to #4 diapers. Whoa!! Fat Baby!

We tried Stage 3 foods which have chunks in them. He gagged a little bit but he is getting used to it

Maxx's pincher grasp has gotten really good. He picks up his little yogart bites and puffs and actually gets them into his mouth. Now I do find random ones stuck to his face or his butt but that is ok.

And he started crawling on his hands and knees. He has been scooting all over the place for about 2 weeks but this weekend we got some belly off the floor crawling.

We also go for 9 month pics next Saturday. Can you believe that??? Nine months...where has the time gone!


Lunch with Kathy

Maxx and I had lunch with a good friend of mine, Kathy, on Friday. We always go to Casa Garcia for salads. YUM! Maxx was very well behaved. I think it was b/c I just kept feeding him treats and pieces of avacado. Here are two pics we took






And I think I finally realized who Maxx gets that random dimple from. Hmmm...never knew I had that.

Getting into something

Maxx is now always getting into something he shouldn't be. He has fallen and cracked his head on the hardwood floor so many times I have lost count.

Here he is in his room one day. He was supposed to be playing with his toys on his playmat. I turned around and he had pulled to standing on the box and was tugging on the handles on the filing cabinet.








And then he fell!



Gran Pat thinks he will be walking by 10 months old. Oy, help me now!!!!

Test for GranPat

On the move

Maxx is on the move in more ways than one.

He has learned how to army crawl and scoot himself all over the place. He was playing with his sit and play musical toy the other morning and ended up like this. Well since he is a fatty he got stuck and couldn't crawl out of it. So he proceeded to crawl with it.







And now all he wants to do is walk. He can pull up on everything in sight and is on the move. He walks all around the living room. I really need to get the child locks on everything this weekend!

Halloween Fun

As usual, I tried to get some pics of Maxx and he wasn't having it. All he wanted to do was attempt to crawl away from me.




We went to Steve and Brittany's house for Halloween to do some trick or treating with friends. Here is our cute group- a dragon, a monkey, a duck hunter, and a pretty witch!



Maxx definitely has my cheeks!



Clowning around with Uncle Will.
