When I take you out in my surry with the fringe on top

This is Max's first carriage ride in historic Lexington Virginia. We had a great trip and got to visit Grandma & Grandpa Walkers' new home on the range. Max loved the horses and the carriage ride around town but most of all he loved the attention. Thanks for a nice trip!

A Few Things about Max: Age 10 months

1. Max loves to eat. He especially loves to feed himself. If I put 5 cheerios on Max's tray he will grab them and shove them into his mouth as fast as he can.
2. Loves to play peek-a-boo!
3. He will try to put almost any object in his mouth.
4. Max now locomotes all over by rolling & army crawling. At 10 months Max could very well be crawling (normally) or even beginning to act interest in walking but he prefers the previously mentioned forms of transportation.
5. Nothing stops Max in his tracks like the prospect of ogling a cell phone.
6. Still afraid of the vacuum cleaner (maybe even more so!)
7. Max loves other babies and children and scoots himself over to them at any opportunity.
8. Max has two teeth now. He accidentally bit my finger when I was feeding him kiwi. Ouch!
9. Corey & I gave Max his first hair cut yesterday. Corey was complaining about his ear locks and duck tail so we can them a little trim.
10. As his dexterity improves, Max has discovered his pointer finger and points at and touch things. The buttons on your shirt, the screw in the chair, any microscopic speck on the carpet, the freckle on my arm, and zipper on his jacket. Little things are big things for Max. He especially loves to be read to and points to all the pictures.

He is the cutest. We love having Max and his pointers in our family.
