There is so much going on that I lose track of it. It is amazing and leaves me with no time to even take a picture. Max has been really busy exploring the world around and inside him. It is both exciting and scary for me as well. He can understand pretty much everything at the moment. Communication is still mainly one way but he is earnestly working on getting his part of the conversation heard. He "talks" to us all the time and laughs and imitates and teases and goes through all of the human emotions - learning. He has accomplished the skill to mimic - a crying person, a laughing person, a yawning person; he scoops with a spoon, picks with a fork, and cuts with a knife; he blows on his soup when it is hot and stays a meter away from the hot oven when I open it; he can throw and kick a ball; stay away from the street; read red and green light; tell you where his belly is, tell you where his bum is; row a boat with a friend; make friends; SLEEP : ))))
This is just a snippet of what's going on. It's hard work in a pretty beautiful world.
