Visiting, Working, Creating, Loving, Missing
Here is what we are up to "currently". Like I mentioned before, go check out Harvesting Kale. They are the parents of this link up.
Max and I are currently visiting and exploring places all over Seattle. He is so steady on his feet now I like to take him on walks in our neighborhood. There is always tons of construction going on so he is mesmerized by all the big trucks and sounds. He also loves looking up at the sky to see planes and helicopters. To be young again.
Max and I are working on limits and patience. Max on limits and me on patience. He is throwing his pint sized tantrums all the time now, demanding independence and control. He is loving the word No more and more and constantly gives me an ear full. I am working on walking away, and trying not to laugh when he flails his body on the ground.
Max and I are creating some art. He is getting into coloring now. I bought him so toddler friendly, washable crayons and a Cars coloring book. He is far more interested in the pictures than coloring them, but I figured that will change. I am trying to create more arty pictures, but that will always be a work in progress.
Max and I are loving each other. He is slowing starting to give me more kisses (although he is just giving me his head to kiss rather than his lips, stinker), and he is giving hugs as well. Nothing better than getting a tight squeeze from your monster.
Max doesn't appear to be missing anyone or thing right now? He does call out for Stella, our neighbor friend. "Lela, Lela" I think he must miss her when she is away. Too sweet. Right now I am missing the sunshine, and my weekly txt messages from Sharon.
