Max continues to be a funny, rambunctious almost-three-year-old. He's inventing new stories everyday, and his world is peopled with "monsters" "crocodiles" and "scarfs." If you are wondering about the "scarfs"... Max watched the lion king for the first time a few weeks ago. Since then, he is often assigning us all roles in his reenactment: "Papa, I am Simba, you are The King [mufasa] and samson is Scarf [scar, the bad lion]...you tell scarf to go away!"
Max surprises us everyday with what he is learning. Here's some pictures of his budding skills:
Max is also becoming increasingly social. We've formed a great friendship with one of his classmates from "the old school," Ethan and his parents. A few weeks ago we met up with them to ride the train in old Poway. These boys just love to romp together around the playground, they are truly two peas in a pod.
Of course, Jackson lives across the street and is a frequent playmate too. When Hana inherited a barbie convertible from the neighbor, the boys promptly claimed it. Any given weekend Max & Jackson can be found cruising the street looking for
babes trouble and squabbling over who gets to drive.
Max went to Jackson's birthday party a few weeks ago, and he loved all of the jumping but I think his favorite was the t-ball. Max has a knack for making contact and whacking the ball. I think baseball is not too far in his future.
Max keeps us on our toes that is for sure!
