ON ALL FOURS?!?!

Yep, that's right! Yet ANOTHER incredible milestone for me, Mighty Max! I finally am getting the strength to get on all fours...soooooo exciting! :)

Remember my upper body is a little (ok, a lot) on the weaker side, so this is a BIG improvement for me! MAJOR! Mom and I cannot wait to get together with our OT/PT...they are going to be very, very, very excited! We have been working on this for months!!! Just to be silly, I don't usually like to perform all my tricks for my OT/PT, so Mom made sure to take photos for proof!

This was right before my bath. Mom was trying to get me to taste pureed carrots...that was a lot of fun. Everywhere but my mouth! :)


Ok this is how I start.













And presto, I AM UP! Yippee!












...then back down! Opps!













I'm going to try this again! Can someone please move this chair though?










*This amazing moment was yesterday...before I started to get sick again. I started vomiting last night and didn't improve much today. Oxygen levels were up and breathing treatments had to be increased. Plus I have been a tad cranky and crying quite a lot. Mom is taking me to the doctor tomorrow morning just to make sure nothing serious is brewing. Hopefully this passes soon so I can get back to the amazing adventures of Mighty Max!!!

Yeah Max...you beat me at this one!

Mom and Dad have been working with me on this too, and I can get on my knees (chest on the floor) or up on my hands (trunk and legs on the floor). I just can't quite get it all together yet.

Maybe they just don't have the proper motivation yet...I still don't like my teeth being brushed. I might try to crawl away from that!

Oh, Maxwell, how wonderful! You certainly are able to hold your head up well too! I am so amazed at how fast you are progressing. All the efforts by you and Mommy are getting super results.

I hope that you are feeling better today.

I love you,

I wish I could make the font bigger here because "Woo-hoo!" is being shouted! So, so, cool to see. I think everyone reading is doing a little version of Max's "happy dance" in thier seats as they read this!
