For the last few weeks, we’ve been actively encouraging Max to sit up on his own. When he’s laid on his back, he gets upset and frustrated very quickly, and he seems to be bored of tummy time at this point. His legs are starting to kick more and more each day, so we sense that crawling will be right around the corner (although, it may be a long corner).

For now, Max can sit for about 15 seconds at a time, and then he topples over. Here he is in his play yard, when we first sit him up…


…then 15 seconds later when he starts to fall forward.


We’ve also tried to introduce him to the kitties, and it’s only now that he’s finally starting to gain interest. We think that he sees them as his mobile and chatty stuffed animals. Here’s Peanut being subjected to Max’s little hands.
