I always thought I wanted a baby girl first. Those cute flower bows and tights were just so enticing. After having my darling little boy, I am absolutely in love and couldn't imagine it any other way. In fact, I am hoping for another boy next. Max is on a pretty strict schedule of eat, play, sleep every 3 hours. But not too strict that we aren't flexible if we need to be. He takes his naps at 9 a.m., 12, and 3. He usually goes to bed around 7p.m. and wakes up for the day around 6 or 7 a.m. He is still waking up every 2 to 3 hours at night *yawn*.
He eats 4 to 6 ounces every 3 hours and weighs almost 18 pounds! My arm muscles are stronger than they have ever been. Lugging him around all day is such a workout. We are working on rolling over, tummy time, and grabbing toys. He is a pretty content and chill baby most of the time. He is so smiley, but whenever I whip out my camera he gives me this Mr. Serious face. He is just like his dad. I can't get him to smile for the camera for the life of me. No matter how big a fool I make of myself, he just stares at me like, " Mom, get that camera out of my face."
I have found my niche in being a mother. I always want a baby on my hip. My heart just aches for another sweet baby, and I am pining for #2. Dan is satisfied with Max right now, and thinks I am crazy for wanting another kid so soon. But I am no spring chick and if we want a big family we gotta get a move on it!
I had to add this picture to show off his adorable chub.
I just die over those chubby cheeks and double chin. He is delicious. (Imagine me behind the camera making all sorts of funny faces, jumping around, and singing. Yeah, he's not amused.)
