To know Max is to love him. This kid is so fun!
He’s an emotional kid, so you do have to put up with some drama…and ear-piercing screaming…and crying so hard that you can’t understand a word he’s saying…and more ear-piercing screaming…
Aside from that, though, Max is a bundle of energy and fun and JOY for life! He often reminds me a lot of a (well-reigned) Fudge from the book Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing.
With Max, you never know what you’re gonna get next. He might jump off the top of the slide. He might leap of the couch as you’re walking by, launching himself onto your back. He may unexpectedly throw a frisbee in your face when you’re calmly reading a book. He may break into song at any time.
Oh, that last one…he has recently discovered that he LOVES to sing. Max sings every day. His song collection is growing, but the ones I can name off-hand are:
- Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
- The Farmer In The Dell
- The Alphabet Song
- Bingo (There Was a Farmer…)
- Row, Row, Row Your Boat
- Jesus Loves Me
- Thank You, Lord, For This Food (our lunchtime prayer song)
He probably knows more, but these are the ones I hear over and over, again and again, all day long. He sings with joy and enthusiasm, and he loves for us to sing along with him!
He tends to “shut down” when I pull out the camera for a video, but I caught a few songs on video that I wanted to add to the blog so we can remember his cuteness at two years old.
The Farmer In The Dell (the second time, he sings it alone…)
P.S. The photos are unintentionally labelled January2010…they should say 2012…I’m not sure how that happened! :)
