This past weekend, I woke up to Max naming the letters on my shirt. He was pointing and said "R, K, M, E, E, A" as he named them off. I hadn't realized he knew all of those letters already! It was an awesome way to wake up. He's been talking in his sleep lately, which is the sweeting thing in the world. The other night, I heard him saying his own name. I looked over, and saw him patting his chest and belly as he said "Mah" over and over. It's so sweet to hear him almost say his name, and to be naming himself in his sleep. Such a cutie pie.
My little boy just loves to help his mommy. He has started to help with making dinner. He's been helping me put everything together to cook. I was filling the measuring cups with water for him, and then he was putting the water into the pan. He was so careful and serious about it. This is a big job! He also grabs for a fresh spoon to help me stir while I cook.
Speaking of food, Max loves wearing his Daddy's hat during dinner. It's a thick (and very warm) winter hat, but he just loves to wear it while he eats. He's all about hats lately. He puts a bowl on his head during his bath and yells "hat!" He's just so cute.
We built our first snowman this weekend! Max was helping me pat the snow onto the big snow balls, and he thought the patting part was hilarious. He kept giggling at it. He'd pat a few times, stop, look at me and laugh, and then start again. He's such a silly boy. He was not interested in the actual snowman building part though. He just wanted to push the snowman's head off! It was so funny! He pushed the head off, and then the top part of the body. He demolished the snow man and ate it like a crazy little monster. He also had a blast playing on his slide. The cold weather doesn't seem to bother him at all. I loved holding his little hands as we walked through the snow together. Such sweet memories.
The other day, he did the silliest thing. I asked him if I could change his diaper because it had pee in it. He ran to his alphabet puzzle, grabbed the letter P and ran around the house smacking his diaper with it. Needless to say, I had to wait a few minutes for him to settle down (and myself too, because I was laughing hysterically) and finally change his diaper. Apparently P is his favorite letter this week. That was one memory that I really wish I had caught on film!
