Maxwell - Nine Months

Maxwell is 3/4 of the way to being one year old! Crazy how time flies! Maxwell is officially a mover and a groover now that he is crawling. He sometimes does the one legged hitch, and other times he crawls on all fours. Both are effective means of transportation, and we often find ourselves chasing after him so he doesn't get into any trouble. He has even mastered getting up the stair from the family room to the dining room, but getting down is another story. He can push to sit quickly now and pulls himself up on everything from furniture to the dog. He wears 12 month clothes although sometimes the pants can be a little long on his short legs. Food is still a centerpiece in Maxwell's life, and we still haven't found anything he absolutely refuses to eat. Some new favorites are king crab legs, breakfast sausages, and Italian sausage. Now that he has a few teeth he is getting good at biting things which includes our fingers every now and then. Max is pretty consistently sleeping 6-8 hour stretches at night now, and he's even given us a few 10 hour stints as well. He still takes two naps a day, but these can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours depending on something we have yet to figure out. He still babbles like crazy, but no true words have emerged just yet. Max loves to give "huggies" and bury his little head into your chest. His "huggies" are truly the best! He experienced his first cold this month and along with lots of sneezes came lots of nose wipes which he did not enjoy one bit. It was definitely another busy month and with summer right around the corner there will be so much more for Max to explore.
