Currently: Max Edition 6.5 Months

Max is 6 1/2 months old. He had his 6 month appointment with the doctor last week. He is 17 lbs, 12 oz. This is the 50th percentile for weight, which is pretty crazy considering he started under the 5th percentile and he was exclusively breastfed until we started solids a few weeks ago. Also crazy? The guy is pretty short! He is 25 1/2 inches, which is the 20th percentile. This is also up from birth, but when your Dad is 6'4" being short is pretty unbelievable.

I thought it would be fun to do Max's version of the Currently post I did the other day. 

So, Max is currently...

reading Goodnight Moon and Moo Baa La La La

loving pears + oatmeal, and carrots, his the crawl ball, sitting outside at restaurants, laughing at his friends, swimming

thinking "Will I wake up in my crib after this nap, or will I be in some other crazy place?"

feeling so excited by life that makes noise while inhaling 

anticipating the day when he can have that glass of wine...

(or he'd also settle for a beer)

inspired by people who take no naps but never get grouchy

sad that all of his food is cold mush

working on crawling, getting from lying down to sitting, pulling up (basically anything that will help me MOVE), setting a record for longest car ride screaming fit

looking forward to getting some teeth

grateful that he has his own red car to drive while Mom eats breakfast

Max wants to know what you are currently loving! 


  1. I can't get over how cute he is! I am surprised that isn't in a higher percentile for height as he seems long to me - at least compared to Evelyn so she must really be short for their age! I just love his hair and all of his facial expressions!

    I'm currently loving that today is my Friday, the perfect summer weather we've been having lately and the fact that I'll see my entire family tomorrow!

  2. I'm currently loving this post and the adorable Max pictures. I mean, geez, he's adorable.

    I'm also currently loving that we are playing your Red Sox in baseball and that you got one of my favorite pitchers (Joe Kelly!). And that it's a rainy, rainy day because we need all the rain we can get. It's been so dry lately!

  3. hahahah love this! You guys look like you're having so much fun at the cape!

  4. OMG that last picture. He is the cutest.

    I'm currently loving the gorgeous weather we are having today.

  5. hahah i love the look on his face with you in the water like.. "man i was having so much fun with dad and then i had to stop to take a picture.."

  6. It's amazing how genetics work. We thought for sure our kiddos would be tall and Grace will probably be 5'5" max. Not short, but certainly not tall. And her weight has fallen off the chart and she is 0%ile because she only weighs about 23 pounds at almost 2.5 years. Yet Sammy is completely different. Her weight was 68th %ile and her height was 96th (24" at 2 months!). We can already tell that Grace is going to be the little Big Sister. We look at Grace and wonder who she takes after because she is just very petite and little and we definitely are not!

  7. Such a cutie! I still can't get over how much hair he has

  8. He is so cute! That is so funny that he's considered "short", especially when Eric is so tall. Watch him sprout up like crazy one day! And Max, I don't blame you for being sad all your food is cold mush, I wouldn't like that either.

  9. Seeing these awesome photos makes me KICK MYSELF for not grabbing a photo of everyone when we saw you a couple weeks ago! So glad he's healthy, happy and freaking adorable!
