Happy Birthday – Max is 2!

Friday, November 28th, 2008

Wow, how time flies. Two weeks ago Max turned 2. We celebrated at home and today (Thanksgiving) we have another small birthday party with the Grandparents Linda and Warren, Aunt Becky and Uncle Kevin. Max loves Thomas the Steam Engine so he really enjoyed the large Thomas wooden train set he got from the grandparents. He certainly has outgrown Baby Einstein and watches now Bob der Baumeister (in German), Wallace and Gromit and his favorite movie “Cars”.

Also Max has grown quite a bit. He is now 35 inches tall and weighs 27.4 pounds. He transitioned from his small family day care to the Infant Toddler Center on Alma Street in Palo Alto. He really enjoys it there. They have a large yard and he spends a lot of time outside. He learned many new words and here are some of his favorites: Tractor, Firetruck, I know, Train, Milk, Doggie, Up and Down.

Max can stand!

This evening Max was playing in his crib while I was cleaning the kitchen (Karen is at the VMWare Field Kick-off meeting). When I came into Max’s room he was on his knees holding on to the bars of the bed. And then with some encouragement he pulled himself further up until he was standing on his feet. What a great moment. Tomorrow I try to film it if he does try to stand up again.
