Happy 2nd Birthday Max!

All of Max's awesome grandparents were on hand to celebrate the little guy's 2nd birthday.

Max, this past 2 years has been the greatest of our lives. We look forward to the next year as we continue to watch you grow. We love you!

another milestone

Eight minutes ago, as I showered and Max attempted to nap, I heard a loud thud. Max had escaped from his crib.

We are now thoroughly screwed!

Lots to update

It's been over a month since our last post, and we had a lot that we could have posted about then. We're still working on his eating, but he is learning and talking quite a bit now. He repeats the last word of most of our sentences, and has surprised us with some "colorful" language that we have no idea where he could have picked up!

The biggest development is how much stuff he knows. We were please to discover over Christmas that he knew almost every one of his letters. He now (a full month shy of his second birthday) knows all of his letters (and the sounds they make), his numbers 1-10 (and can count them with assistance), his colors, and his shapes (he loves saying "octagon").

Over the past month, he's also learned his name ("Mucks"), the word "Flag" (no more "ga"), and the motherload-"Flower". We thought we'd be thrilled to never hear the word "baby" again. It was a bit sad when those "babies" became flowers.

We're loving all of these new developments and can't wait to see what's next.

Here's some video of Max's Alphabet. It's long (about 5 minutes), but it's adorable.
