Fi-ya Fi-ya

Max is changing daily and is doing many new cool things now that he's two. Here's a few:
  • He loves to YELL: Bye-yi Bye-yi when he's leaving places, especially daycare!
  • He's still really into books - we have to cut him off each night, his favorites he'll ask to read OVER and OVER and OVER again, in a row, like Brown Bear, Brown Bear, The Flea's Sneeze, Blue Train, Green Train, The Very Hungry Caterpillar
  • He's really been eating well and sleeping well which makes Mommy happy!
  • He's in love with Anpanman - a Japanese cartoon character.
  • He loves to ride his bike or be on the back of my bike
  • He still puts EVERYTHING in his mouth - ughhh...
  • He still cries when we leave him at daycare, he's only not-cried twice.
  • He's saying more and more in English and he'll say "hai" (yes) and "Ohayo" (informal good morning) and "konnichiwa" (hello) and "arrigato" (thank you) - kinda
  • He loves trains and bubbles, but he ends up getting frustrated and losing his temper playing with both.
  • He has a wicked temper and usually ends up hurting himself because he flails around and throws himself backwards.
  • He still likes animals BUT loves things that go - he points out every motorcycle, airplane, helicopter...
  • Tells everyone around him he loves them when he's happy. It's cute, but I think it freaks people out a bit. Luckily strangers don't understand him!
I have been bad about taking video lately, but I love to have the little snippets so you can really catch a glimpse of his personality (and so I can remember the cute and sometimes not-so-cute things). He started this "Fire, fire" thing lately, from what, we don't know. And as you read above, proclaims his love when he's happy, so he gives his affection to Savannah by showering the picture (which is too big to fit on any wall in our house) with kisses because he's oh-so-happy playing with his cement mixer that happens to put out fires.
