Sibling love

We put up the gates in the house since Max has begun to really crawl all over the place. He doesn't mind them. In fact, I think he likes them, they're just another thing for him to pull up on. And dance. With his sister.
Seriously, all this sibling love is killing me! I remember being so nervous about bringing another baby into the family and how it would affect my sweet girl. But she adjusted beautifully (although she likes being a "baby" lately and being held and carried... whatever, it's cute) and she adores her little brother. Except for when he steals her toys. Or when she takes his toys and he wants them back!

I know I post pictures of Sasha and Max's cousins Emily and Maya all the time, but we just love having them over and the kids have such a great time playing together! The big girls have so much fun and are such good friends and it's wonderful to see the little ones starting to really interact!

10 months old

Max turned 10 months old today. Another month closer to a year, but hey, it was bound to happen sooner or later, right? He's the funniest little guy I know. He's always so happy, always smiling at people, flirting with everybody! He eats mostly finger foods now, though we still have some jars and pouches, so we're finishing those off. He loves to eat! He's still nursing too. He absolutely adores his big sister and they always laugh at each other; my favorite is car rides back from school where they just talk and laugh and goof around together! He's got 3 teeth, we're still waiting on the second top tooth to pop through, but he's handled the top teeth a lot better than the bottom ones! He's standing really well now, he even stood unassisted for 3 seconds just the other day!
He's had a second sleep-over this month and he did surprisingly well. He's really just such a sweet baby and he likes everybody. He's still very attached to me, so whenever I'm around he doesn't want anybody else to hold him. When he wakes up in the mornings or from his naps, he looks for the monkeys on his walls and talks to them and wants to touch them, hehe. He's all over the place now, so we've put up the baby gates, although he doesn't mind them too much, they're just an extra place for him to pull up and stand. And his coolest new trick is drinking from a straw!

Max's first time at the Met

Z had a day off on Wednesday, so we headed to NYC to the Met to see their exhibit on photography. It was an amazing exhibit and we wandered around the museum for a little while afterwards.

Ballet school

Sasha's ballet school had a parents observation week, where all the parents were invited into the classroom to see the girls dance. I absolutely adored seeing how well she did and how proud of herself she was!
 They're having a show in the beginning of June and I'm so excited to see her dance on stage!
