Maxwell is eating solids. It sure is fun.
No, really...it is! I love seeing the look of his face when he takes the first bite of something. Even when it is a food that he has had before, he gets this "what did you just put in my mouth" look on his face.
Then he realizes he likes it and smiles and opens up for more.
Breakfast is the usually the cleanest meal of the day. I don't know why. He is much messier with his veggies at lunch and dinner. Except for this morning, hence the title of this blog. :o)
I am making all of his food myself. All homemade, organic fruits and veggies for this little guy! For now, anyway. I bought some jars, because the homemade goodies don't travel very well, so those guys get popped into the diaper bag from time to time. But most days, he gets a few cubes of mommies yummies! I spent quite a few hours over the weekend with the help of Grandma Paulette making all this stuff, but it should last us quite a while.
It's amazing how different Maxwell is now than a few weeks ago. He is starting to sit up on his own without too much support, and can even last a few minutes before he starts to topple over. He is now able to sit up in a high chair at a restaurant or in the cart at the grocery store in his special seat...which is good for Mom and Dad because he is getting really heavy to cart around in the carseat!
Here he is at Buca for dinner in Irvine on Sunday:
We had a good visit with Grandma and Grandpa Ingham the last two days. They got to see him twice this month, so that was definitely a treat! And he really is so much fun! He plays with his toys more, and he talks and laughs, make that squeals, a lot.
It's even fun to watch him sleep!
All in all, it's been a fun couple of weeks with my growing "little" (almost 18 lbs and 27+ in.) guy! It just keeps getting better!
By the way, here is our recent attempt to get a photo to match the title of the blog. I think Griffin and Tucker were freaked out, and Maxwell was too sleepy after bathtime to sit up on his own!
Oh, yes. And as this blog has been all about Maxwell, and let's be honest, most of them probably will be and that's probably why you're reading it anyway, Mom and Dad and the rest of the gang are all doing well, too!
