I took several videos yesterday morning and thought I would spread them out over several entries. (I don't want everyone to be overwhelmed with cuteness.) In this segment, Max has finally awakened and joins Tyler and I in our morning routine, already in progress.
Yep. Max knows what he wants and he's not hesitant to just go for it. Here is another example. Max decided some time ago that the food on Mommy and Daddy's plate tastes much better than anything in his bowl. Since then, Mommy got smart and just pretends that what ever I make for Max is really MY breakfast, lunch, dinner. You get the idea. He thinks he is soooo slick when he swipes Mommy's food.
Note the look of confusion at the end of the video when I start telling Max to say "bye bye". You can just tell he is thinking, "Mommy? You are going bye bye? NOW? Where the heck are you going???" This will come back to bite me in the ass later. Stay tuned for the bye bye video.
Oh, and one other thing to note. See the cute brown outfit Max is wearing in these videos? It's by Baby Soy - yep, made from soy beans. I get a kick out of it's biodegradable goodness. But that's not the thing to note. That outfit is a Rubik's cube of snaps. When I went to nap with Max the night before, he was wearing something entirely different. John fetched the baby when he woke from his nap and let me continue sleeping. I woke at 3am the following morning. I guess I was tired! Anywho, when Max got up at 8am he was wearing this Baby Soy outfit with it's 82 snaps in this odd yet cool asymmetrical configuration with extra snaps down the sides and around the crotch. It takes me 20 minutes to figure out what snap fastens where; so I was really impressed that John had figured it out on his own. I should tell him so. He likes it when I recognize his skills at things like outfit matching and correct assembly of baby-type items.
