Our growing boy is now into 6-9 month old clothes and has even moved up to size 3 diapers. Tyson and I see 6 month old children while we are out and about and stare in awe as we look back at Maxon. He is just about their size. He is also starting to grasp better and stretch out his arms for us to pick him up. While his feedings are becoming less frequent, he is eating more at a time. Maxon is also sleeping better and on a efficient schedule. He will go down at 8pm, awake for a feeding with Dad at 3am, back to sleep after that, wake at 6, back to sleep at 630 and then I have to wake him up at about 930 so we can start our day. I am sure he would sleep in longer (thanks to Daddy's gene's!). At about 10am he will sleep for about half an hour, then nap again at 2 and then again at 5 or 6. He is a good eater, sleeper and an overall peaceful baby. He hardly cries, smiles at everyone, and is content with whatever we do or wherever we go.
Maxon loves sitting in his chair, while watching Food Network or sucking his hands. He watches us cook in the kitchen and loves his furry animal mobile. We are always on the go whether it is with play dates, running errands, meeting friends or taking advantage of the San Diego summer....and Maxon is taking it all in. He is making friends, enjoys the fresh air and sleeps peacefully on our car rides. He is the best on our Tuesday night date night.
Tyson and I have been blessed with a great baby. We had Maxon to add to our love and to teach him about the beauty of this world. We are in awe on how much he takes in and learns. Already, he has become such a strong and independent little man. While he cuddles and snuggles with his mommy, he can also screech and be a little terror with his daddy. We cannot believe how fast his life has flown by, but we are so grateful that we have introduced him to so much. Just goes to show how much we have to look forward to.
