13 Months

Maximus turned 13 months on the 7th of March...I'm just a wee bit slow in getting around to posting this.

Between 12 and 13 months, he has learned how to walk on his own and really enjoys being on his feet and moving around. He plows right over toys and objects on the ground; although, he has learned to step over the baby gate into the kitchen. Sometimes he gets walking so fast that he looks like he's running. When he trips or falls or bumps into something, he rarely cries. He's pretty tough that way. We try not to make a big deal about it and not react with a big gasp and "Ohhhh..." That way, it usually doesn't even phase him.

In other areas, Maximus is communicating more and more with us...he continues to point at things that he wants, like his swing. He loves that swing of his. I'm not sure what we're going to do once he outgrows. Perhaps we'll have to get him a hammock.

When we're in the kitchen eating, he points to the curtains, wanting me to open them so he can look outside. He also points to things in his room that he likes or wants to touch. When we say certain words like: curtain, window, alphabet, tiger, bird, ball, swing, he will point at them.

Him and I love to play peek-a-boo. When I need to shower, most of the time I put him in his crib with some toys and a blanket and he is perfectly content. But before I get ready, we usually play this game where I come in and out of the room and say, "boo" to him...he giggles and usually falls over if he's standing in his crib. I'll rush up to him and say boo and kiss him and we'll both laugh. I cherish those times with him.

He still loves the garage and at every chance he gets he likes to push the button to open or close the garage door. His obsession with the dishwasher has not faded...just yesterday, he climbed on top of the door and was sitting on it. I quickly took a couple photos with my cell phone.
He's a funny boy. He makes us laugh daily. He loves, dancing, rhythm and music. I thought I'd also post another video of him that I took last week. He's dancing in his crib during some play time. I posted this to facebook, but wanted to share it with my blogger friends as well. Last time I posted a video of him dancing, Louis Prima's, Just a Gigolo was playing in the background. Well, he goes...same song, but with much more enthusiasm. haha...

Happy day!

Sleepy Head


Doesn't this look relaxing? It would probably be more relaxing if I wasn't disturbing him.

I hope you have a restful day!

Just a Gigolo

We love listening to the old standards. And this song by Louis Prima really gets Maximus dancing. I remember my Mom & Grandma singing this song when I was young.

He's my little gigolo...but the only difference is that I don't have to pay him for dances. Awh...Love this little guy!

Happy day!
