A sick boy and pictures

Max is now 8 1/2 months old. These past couple of weeks have been very interesting for us. Max had a lot of his first things happening and it was all dealing with him being sick. He had his first ear infection, first cold, first running noise, and his first tooth. He had to take medicine twice a day for 10 days which he did not like at all. It was always a challenge to give to him. But last Friday we went to the doctors and everything went away. Then last night, Monday, the noise started to run again, the coughing started and the fever came. How can he be sick again? He was just sick. I don't know what is going on. I guess he wasn't over his first cold and plus there is a second tooth coming in right next to the first one. I feel so bad for him when he is sick. He just looks and sounds so horrible. I hope he feels better soon. But here are some pictures of him because he is getting so big.

His first tooth. You can't really see it but it is there on the bottom

He loves to play with the DVDs. He loves to pull them down and put them in his month. Well he loves to put anything in his month. Maybe that is why he is not getting over this cold.

Whenever he sees the dishwasher down, he will come crawling over as fast as he can to play with it and he gets so upset when I shut it. I think it is one of his favorite toys.

I went to check on him during his nap and I found him like this and I thought it was funny.

He is finally crawling on his knees. He loves doing the army crawl, but he will crawl on his knees until he gets tired and then he will go back to the army crawl especially when he is on the tile.

Heidi, Eirik, and Skye got Max the jungle wall stickers and he loves to look at him. At times he gets frustrated that he can't put the lion in his mouth.

Jason, Nelly, and Ali got this shirt for Max from Ecuador and it is the cutest shirt ever.

We went to Laguna Beach with Paul's family at the end of August. It was a lot of fun to see everyone and to spend time at the beach for a couple of days. Max did great at the beach. He took his morning nap in his little tent, played in the sand and in the water.
