Voracious Max

My intent was to show you how verbose (albeit unintelligible) Max is. His peak time of dialogue has generally been while I sit with him during his meals. So I decided to video today's meal in the hope of capturing this. I failed. Instead, you now (and I) can witness the volume of food my son packs into his face when he wishes/needs. This was taken 10/11/2011

Max and his Train Set

Max is trying out a train set of his own. He finds himself somewhere between a nimble-fingered engineer and a destruction prone Godzilla. He has also apparently learned far too quickly that Dad will remedy any incidence of train misalignment. This was taken 8/7/2011.

We were up at Green Bay this weekend, where we stopped by Bay Beach Amusement Park. We all rode the kiddie train, which Max found both terrifying and riveting. Here's a chronicle of his reaction. This was taken 6/5/2011.

Memorial Day Max

We spent Memorial Day afternoon over at Grandma and Grandpa's where Max had a blast in the pool. The weather was great with 90 degree temps and some cool breezes. This was taken 5/30/2011.

Playtime Max

Max loves his trucks and cars.

Watermelon Max

We had to cancel our trip out to California due to Max's fever and sore throat. He discovered how much he likes cold watermelon (for his throat no doubt) and here munches a massive quantity. This was taken 5/15/2011.

Max navigates the (sofa) Alps

Max is getting pretty good at navigating the furniture. (BTW: This video was taken with a Motorola Xoom Tablet.) This was taken 4/26/2011.

Playful Max

Max's mom is away this week, presenting her valuable skills at a conference in Las Vegas. So Dad is the sole car-collision-partner for Max. (This video was taken with my iPhone -- Sorry for the wobble.) Taken 4/12/2011.

Max's 1st B-Day Cake

We were looking forward to watching Max eat cake for the first time, and apart from a little frosting in the nose everything went very smoothly. This was undoubtedly the sweetest, most sugary thing he's ever tasted and the look on his face during a couple moments belies that fact.

Max 1st B-Day Presents

This is a rather LONG video (30+ minutes) of Max's 1st B-Day. This was taken Sunday afternoon on 3/20/2011 (a day before his actual birthday). Here he is opening with his presents and playing with his new toys. You are also privy to a lot of casual, witty banter from his parents and grandparents.

Tunnel Max

Max is 11 months and one day old. Here he is playing with his dad through our play tunnel. He obviously gets a big kick out of discovering your whereabouts. His joy is cut short at the very end of the video due to a tunnel wipeout.

Bath Time is Fun Time

This was taken on January 8, 2011. Max is 9.5 months old and quite adept at navigating the bath tub. This video is rated PG-BB, for frequent appearances of Baby Buns.

Babies in Cages

This was taken November 2, 2010. Max is a little over 8 months here. We set up a playpen in the living room, and Max seems to enjoy the new standing exercises it allows.

Finger Food Finally Meets Mouth

Max seems quite comfortable with the hand-to-mouth "baby puffs". Who doesn't like "puffs", right?

Thanksgiving Max - Year Zero

I love this guy! He eats, laughs and poops as well (and as much) as any little Foutz ever did! Here's an admittedly lengthy video of him eating something he apparently likes.

Moving Around Yet Going Nowhere

Max is definitely putting in the effort at stretching those limbs and trying to crawl, but Alas! He doesn't seem to be getting anywhere. Something like a baby version of a stationary bike.

Inch Worm Max

This is an admittedly overlong video showing Max's crawling status. He currently seems to prefer moving backward. There is a small payoff for watching the entire video, which ends in something akin to an old Godzilla movie.

Windy Max

A blustery September morning with Max happily playing for a few minutes.

Bouncing Max

The trajectory of skill development has been phenomenal. Here Max is three days shy of 5 months and is demonstrating some remarkable motor skills. What I find most striking about this video is that he partially understands/engages with the spinning wheels and spheres. It is amazing how quickly and clearly we can learn the basic mechanics of things.

Moshing Max

Max is starting to demonstrate he is one part energizer bunny, one part mosher. Here he is 4 months and two weeks old. Of course, once he sees the shiny camera, he is more interested in it than doing his jig, but he busts a few moves for us nonetheless.

Lime Green Lounge Chair Max

The only thing missing here is a baby-sized remote and PS3 controller and a nippled-beverage holder. No doubt those will be on the market soon. This is Max three months and one week old.

Max Mesmerized by the Mobile

At three months and one week of age, Max is enjoying the colorful creatures inhabiting his moving mobile. His recognition of the movement and sound and his full-hearted (and limbed) reaction to them was more than fun to watch. Hope you enjoy this too.

Good Humor Max

Max is ten weeks old today and is developing before our very eyes. He has added smiling, laughing and unintelligible babbling to his repertoire. He also seems to remember simple games and songs. At least that's how I am interpreting his immediate smile as soon as he realizes what's coming.

Max meets West Coast Grandpa and Grandma

Dad and Marty came for a visit this weekend to see Max for the first time. They all seem to get along very well.

Epic Awakening

It seems to take Max a full 10 minutes to wake up. There is a full routine of sudden stretches, yawns and sighs, followed by a final eruption into consciousness, which you'll see here. (This video also dispels any myth that Max doesn't cry.)

First Bath

This turned out to be a little like reading the user manual while driving the car, as we tried to do everything "by the book" for Max's first bath. In the end, pragmatism and an innate understanding of "bathing" took over and Max successfully survived his first scrub down.

Sleepy Garden Gnome

Max and Mama enjoying the wonderful weather today. More precisely, mama is enjoying it and Max is sleeping through it.

Max Loves Little French Fries (Part 1)

A little morning time with Max as he slowly decides whether to observe, cry or sleep (again), all against the backdrop of witty commentary by his father.

Sleepy Max (French Fries Part 2)

Max contemplates sleeping with the help of his pacifier (and dad).

Say Hello to Max Levi

Please welcome Max Levi into the world. Born March 21, 2010 and weighing 7 lbs 11 ounces, he is undoubtedly the greatest new bundle of joy we've set eyes on. Here you see him at about 15 minutes old.
