My Not-So-Little Boy

Max wakes up every morning as a new person.  I swear that when I grab him from his crib to feed him in the morning, he has learned something new and has become more of a little boy than a baby. 

Our amazing little guy has been sleeping through the night, going to bed at 8, waking up at 7 for a quick feed and then sleeping until 1030ish.  I cannot believe Tyson and I are blessed with such a good child. 

Max has learned to razz and loves to spit, in addition to all of his drool.  He is a drool monster and I constantly have to change his bibs, as they are soaked through within an hour.  As of yesterday, Max has also started rolling over.  Today, Tyson put together his little chair that has toys on the tray and where he can walk around in.  He is in pure heaven. 

As for me, I am learning so many things, as a new mother.  Yes, I have changed, but in ways I would have never expected.  And now that I think of it, I am proud to say that I fully embrace what I am taking out of my new status as "mother". 

What I have learned as a new mommy;

  • Laundry is NEVER done

  • There are many ways to cover up spots and smells on your shirt (from baby puke)

  • I can go an entire day without eating

  • I can scarf down a meal in one minute FLAT

  • I can do SOOOO many things with one hand

  • It is okay to not have a perfectly clean house

  • Showering is overrated

  • It takes at least 3 hours to get everyone ready

  • I will always forget something 

  • Things could always be worse

  • A poopy diaper will happen in the most inconvenient places

  • Always know where the nearest garbage and bathroom is

  • Always carry an extra EVERYTHING

  •  Having a living room cluttered with play mats, swings, baby chairs, rattles and blankets is...........cute
And I am sure there are many more, but these are the ones that stick out the most.  I am constantly learning and loving with my boys!

Auntie Katie bought this for Max when she was in NY.  Tyson, the Anti-Yankees fan, quickly changed him.
Max in the tree.  He LOVES being outside.
Max has been trying to hold his bottle.  Such a strong guy! 
Max loves his SKULLS!
The 5 generations!  We went to the Bay Area for a family get together this past weekend.
Max loved his plane ride.  He slept, ate, played and cooed.  My perfect baby!
