The day after Christmas

On the day after Thanksgiving Max made it up to the first stair, and pulled himself up to standing.
The day after Christmas, Max made it to the top of the stairs!

4 minutes ago he was in the living room, 1 minute later he was in the kitchen having conquered all six stairs!

Wow, what a day.

Kotoe's Photos

Our friend Kotoe was over this week and took a few photos of Max. Some turned out so great we wanted to post them here. Thanks Koto-bomb!

Big Boy

What a big boy! Wow!

30 minutes after the last post (Max on the first stair), Max crawled up to the couch and pulled himself up to standing. It is now pretty much all he's interested in doing. He stands in his crib when he should be sleeping, sneaks up on the cats (who now have to find new "safe zones") and is getting into everything he possibly can.

He has used his two new bottom teeth to carve some substantial grooves in his crib, and will occasionally bite his own hand so hard it makes him cry.

He's also properly crawling now, no more "dead-leg drag". It's pretty robotic and funny to watch. Hopefully I'll get video up sometime soon.

He had his 9 month doctor appointment on the 25th (his actual 9 month birthday). He weighed in at 19 pounds 6 oz. and is 28.25 inches tall.

Enjoy the hectic weeks ahead. Christmas and New Year's will be here and gone before we know it.
