Max Harrison is 2 Months old today!

more bonding with Max and his Papa

Grandpa Rich is feeding Max for the first time. I think they work well together!

This is a nightly ritual. Max is in the sling around Jerry - he is fast asleep and Jerry is making the 7 bottles of formula for the next day. He shakes them before they go in the fridge and I think Max likes it. It's become some sort of dance with Jerry. It's hilarious to watch. And even more funny is that he is entertained by it as well.

another smile from Max


a few moments from this past week.

Today we may try to get Max on Video and post that later or tomorrow.

His birthday follows his 2 month check up which was yesterday.
His current stats are:
weight 8 pounds 12 ounces
height 21 3/4 inches
his neck strength is exactly where a "normal" baby should be - and Max showed off his head lifting skills at the doctor's office. we were all so impressed with him.
Strong as bull.

As far as we can see he is doing great. Tracking us with his eyes, pulling his hand into his mouth, starting to smile and laugh
( in his sleep ), eating enough, pooping and peeing enough, and looking cute in all the onsies my friends painted for him although he is slowly moving up in size so just barely into the newborn onsies right now....

Today for his birthday we are relaxing!
This morning I did his usual 5am feeding and then went back to sleep. I usually just stay up. Jerry got the 8 am one so I could get even more sleep - and is currently doing the 11am feeding time so I can post this and rest even more - so I guess Max's birthday is all about ME! HA!
I was with Max for 15 hours yesterday because Jerry had to go to a show with his boss to do some research on a project they are doing so Jerry is giving me a break to get caught up a bit.
My parents came up for a few hours in the afternoon and that was nice too.

Max - you are growing and learning and so fun to watch every day! I love that I can be at home with you and take care of you every day while Papa is at work. I feel really lucky. And I'm glad your papa is so involved in the process.
Hands on Dad! YAY!
