In a letter to the grandparents:
"Hello, we had a busy month - Max can now run three different styles, climb up and down the stairs by himself most of the time, jump, build tall towers (very tall indeed : )) he likes to build them more than destroy them). Max has a new friend Brynne. His favourite word to say is not longer "apple" but "apple sauce". He is talking most of the time and Chris is the one that can understand it more often : ) Max and I are going to music class on Fridays with Robyn (who has an amazing voice) and to arts class on Saturdays with Sun Rey : )) He loves the music class and I dare say he is singing all the time (there is almost no time for talking ; ) ). Chris taught him "Do Re Mi" and it is a song that he keeps chanting but it is Daddy's song; Mom is not aloud to sing it with him : ) A good thing because I have trouble remembering the words of the simplest songs. Hopefully, Max got Chris's memory for the most part. What else... you know about the big tumble... The scratches on the face were gone in less than 5 days. Pretty amazing. But he did not like to talk about it. The first time he saw himself in a mirror after the fall he scared himself and cried a little. : ) I hope I learned my lesson and be more careful next time. This being said, we also went to a real athletics gym and Max had fun with all the strange equipment... Max likes to eat Daddy's pizza now and even learned to pronounce the entire word for that reason. Oh, there were a few birthday parties we attended. And there's Max's coming up : ) Thank you so much for the gifts! We got the parcel yesterday but we are not opening it until tomorrow : ) Thank you for being patient with us, too; we are not always prompt. Good luck and hope to see you soon!!"
