So I’ve gotten into the habit of taking pictures of Max as he’s meeting his various milestones, with every intention of posting them online for our family and friends to see. My downfall is the actual posting part of that equation…sorry!

Now, for your viewing pleasure, are our latest photos of Max doing what he does…

One of Max’s favorite activities of late is to kick up his legs, grab on to his toes, and swing back and forth. It’s really quite cute, and I love playing with him when he’s in toe-mode.


Max is also verbalizing a lot more – smiling, babbling, and laughing all of the time. This picture was taken in the morning when he’s happiest, hanging out with mommy in bed.


He’s also growing a strange head of hair. It’s thinned out a lot since he was born, and looks like a mohawk if you’re looking down at him from the top of his head. We call it his “Old Man Hair”.


Sometimes Max likes to cover his OMH and pretend to be someone else. Here he is as a pharoah.


We bought Max a Baby Einstein Stationary Walker for Christmas, and he’s finally able to hold himself up in it. Notice the funny mohawk hair as well.

I hope he’ll never need them, but he does look rather fetching and brilliant in mommy’s glasses.


After much encouragement from our friends, I decided to make Max homemade baby food. It’s definitely much more cost-friendly, and he is loving it. This is a picture of him eating his very first applesauce. He was a very happy boy afterwards.

Finally, we went to the voting polls on Tuesday to vote for our democratic candidate (let’s just say that between myself, Dave, mama and Lyman, our household effectively canceled each other out). This is Max waiting for Lola to finish her ballot. He even got an “I Voted” sticker. Afterwards, we went to the Stoneridge Mall in Pleasanton, where Max enjoyed his afternoon milk.

Happy 6-month day Max! We love you very much!
