Max is 9 Months!

Max is 9 months and crawling! He is fast when he wants to be and he has a cute little one legged crawl. He loves to follow Mommy all over the house. He is a level five clinger. He always wants Mommy to hod him. If I walk into a room he will start to fuss. He will go to Nate most of the time though. I think this is a side effect of him being in the house with just Mommy, Daddy and his siblings during the quarantine. He just started eating table food and he loves it. 
Max likes:
  • His Mama
  • His family
  • Eating

  • Falling asleep on Mommy
  • Falling asleep in his Zipadee Zip
  • Music
  • When his brother and sister lay on the floor with him.
  • Eating his baby food
  • Being outside
  • Yogurt Melts
  • Putting things in his mouth that aren't food

Max doesn't like:
  • Anytime Mommy isn't holding him
  • Taking a bath
  • Getting shots
  • When the car is not moving
  • Having a dirty diaper
  • Being hungry

Max was 7 Months, Now he's 8 Months!

Max turned 7 months in April. April was kind of crazy. We were in the thick of quarantine with full on homeschooling for Zoe and Max not sleeping through the night. Due to those things I fell down in the job and missed Max's 7 Month post. Max has grown and changed so much since the beginning of quarantine. He can sit up without someone propping him up. He is eating baby food like a champ. He says , "Hi Da" when Nate comes into the room. It might be a coincidence but it's still sweet.

Sweet Sleepy Boy

Zach is 3!

I call Zach my miracle baby. He is my uncomplicated child. He has been the healthiest kid and my best sleeper. The kid loves to sleep and he does it so well. He always has. He turned three this month and I can't believe it. To me, he's still just my baby boy. He is so sweet to his mama. He loves his bear more than anything. He is a good eater. He will never go hungry because when he will find food. He can find food that I didn't know was in my house. It's a skill really. He is growing like a weed. He loves his sister and everything is his "best friend". He hums when he eats and he sings along with TV show theme songs in the cutest way. I was always so worried about having a boy because I know nothing about boys, growing up with a sister. Him making me a boy mom was greatest surprise. I love him so.

This year we couldn't have a party because of the Coronavirus but we made the best of it. We had a cake, balloons and so many people who dropped off gifts and celebrated with us from a 6 foot distance.

Zach doesn't like:
