Is it bizarre that I am so fascinated by watching Max’s mind grow every single day? It’s one of those things that you laugh at before you have kids…those parents that celebrate every single word, and every tiny accomplishment. You want to just scream at them….so he said “wa-wa”?! Big flippin’ deal!
But when it’s YOUR kid, you finally understand. Because you see, YESTERDAY Max was stringing two words together (“Sit Ma-Ma”, “Da-Da Car”, and so on). But TODAY, out of the blue, he was sitting in his car seat and I handed him his “Pilot Book”. And he said “Read pilot book”. Actually it was “Reee Pi Book”, but I got it. It was his first three word sentence! Which might be a “Gee that’s great” for all of you, but for me, I’m elated. I’m watching his mind change and grow, and it is FASC-INATING.
You see, when Max was a baby, I initiated most of what we did. And now, he dreams it up. Like here, when he took his tiny little cat toy and wanted it to sit down and play with him. Then he told it what to do… (look really closely, it’s small!)
And I just stood there and watched. As Max was a master of his own world.
He’s VERY into cars right now too. Complete with the “vrroom” sounds…
