Here's a photo of Max back at MyGym. He had a bit of a break in classes due to the holidays. Looks like he had a fun time playing and running around.
NannyJo has also been working with Max to teach him his body parts. If he is in the mood, he will demonstrate where his head, hands, belly, tushie, and feet are. And he is pretty excited about knowing the words. And in the shower he will wash his body parts as directed. He will also turn around and get his tushie in the water if asked. Yay for NannyJo!
Animal sounds are improving as well. He did tell me once that a duck makes a quacking sound. But cows now say Rowr! We still have 3 months until his 2 year checkup so we can keep working on these skills!
If there was some sort of test on the microwave or electric toothbrush sounds we would pass that test in a second. Max was also eager to have Grandpa take his coffee out of the microwave last night after it dinged. He's on top of things like that.
Max also had his own tiny little piece of pizza last night. I cut a small wedge off Mark's pizza and put it on a plate for Max. He was pretty excited about being a big boy with his own piece of pizza but then quickly decided he would rather eat Mommy's.
Today was our last day of carpooling with Wes for a long time. I'm going to start my maternity leave at the end of the day today. Max will still go to NannyJo every day to try to keep his routine the same. After Granny and Grandpa leave I will be taking Max and Margaret up the HOV lanes and then leaving just Max with NannyJo so that Margaret and I can go home and hopefully get some rest!
