Max has been a real joy lately. It's been so much fun to be around him and he's a really funny kid. Like funny as in he understands and induces humor just to see you smile and share a laugh. I love that about him. He's a polite little kid and says "thanks" without being prompted when given something. He's also using his words to communicate thoughts and feelings and opinions which just blows me over every time. Of course those thoughts, feelings, and opinions are short (one to three words) but nonetheless his intent is there.
Everyday there's a new story or event that happens that makes me love him even more. Here's two from today.
Max has done so excellent in his big boy bed, he only needs reminded of his place in bed at nap time and we were down to one reminder today. But this is what I love. When he wakes up in the morning he'll play in his room for a while before he'll want out. This morning and then after his nap today when he's decided he wants out he politely knocks on the door and then crawls back into bed to wait for me to come get him.
Last night Adam got out my cello for a community dinner he's in a skit for this week. Max fell in love with it as soon as he saw it. Since he's not allowed to play with that Adam got down a guitar that had been given to us and we've been letting Max "play" it. He sings along and plays and gets up and dances and claps for himself when he's done. My little musical child. He makes my heart so happy.
