Well, Mommy (that would be me) has been sick for about a week now. Not raging sick, but in that kind of blah, headache-y, post-nasal drip, coughing-hacking sort of way. Sadly, the boy also got it this time. He’s coughing a little, but mostly he just drips snot periodically throughout the day. Other than that, though, he’s doing pretty well. He’s hard to keep down.

New in the Max world is that he’s learned to really crawl. The funny thing is that he crawls (like really crawling) only when he’s on a rug or carpet. When he’s on hardwood (which is mostly what we’ve got), he does the military crawl and scoots himself across the floor. Makes sense, I suppose. he can go faster that way and it is easier on the knees. He’s getting very, very mobile and is into everything.  I’m sure it will only get worse. He’s a serious Curious George.

His tooth still seems to be at about half mast, but it’s hard to tell. Exactly how big *are* baby teeth, anyway? I’m no expert. I guess we’ll see once another one comes in.

He’s also really good at giving hugs now, which he wants to do even more when he’s sick. It’s very cute. He grabs you around the neck and squeezes as hard as he can. He’s a pretty strong little sucker.
