Here he is with one of his favorite "toys" - a travel-size lotion bottle.
And after slobbering all over the window, giving it kisses:
He just loves standing at the window looking out, and also standing at the full-length mirror checking out that baby that looks just like him.
We had a warm-for-January day last week, so we headed over for a walk in the Morton Arboretum. Max was so peaceful in his stroller and just took it all in.
Max has been cruising around his crib lately. And though I haven't watched him figure out how to get from laying down to sitting up to standing (we have seen him many times go from sitting to standing, but never from laying down) - he has been standing up in his crib waiting for us to come get him the last few mornings. Time to lower the crib mattress again. He is very proud of himself.
