Max is now 6 months old, is so very happy, and has so many new tricks.
I love seeing this baby boy learning and progressing daily. He has been trying for about 3 weeks to crawl, scooting anywhere he wants to go. But this last week Max was promoted to "crawler". He is so funny though. He doesn't have a normal crawl like either of the girls did, but has his own way of crawling. Poppy says he looks like a silver back gorilla, many people say he looks like a worm, and I have heard a few times that he looks like a frog. Whatever he looks like, it is the cutest thing ever. See...
This past Tuesday was the first time that he crawled and then sat up. And he now crawls over to me and gets in my lap. My heart MELTS when he does this. He has been the youngest crawler of our babies. Lily Kate crawled at 7 months, Lucy Cullen was almost 8 months (no surprise that she was the slowest, she's a Gibson!) and Max was right at 6 months. At this age, both girls had teeth, were waving, and said Mama. Max has not done any of those yet, but I am sure he will soon. I love how each child is different!
He had his check up this week. He has grown a little, thank goodness. He is 15 lbs 2 oz and now in the 8th percentile for weight. It still bothers me that he is so little, but the doctor assures me it's part of his genetics. He said Max looked like a string bean, long and skinny! Max is loving his baby food, is now strictly on formula, and has had juice once. He is a terrible sleeper, which keeps Taylor and me not sleeping. I guess I can't complain too much, the first 4 months of his life that's all the boy did.
Max Christian Gibson we love you!
