Max’s 3 Month Pics

So – picking up where I left off last time with Max – at around 6 weeks.

I had a professional photographer lined up to come out and take Max’s newborn pictures.  But, since he was born a couple of weeks early, Max wasn’t looking so newborn anymore!  As you can see, he was already filling out.

The photographer tried really hard to get him sleeping, so we could get some sleeping newborn(ish) pictures, but he just wouldn’t fall asleep.  Wouldn’t you know, a couple of days later I got this shot of him sleeping.  The face is priceless, but unfortunately he was wearing an old sleeper and the setting wasn’t professional looking.  I think it looks best in black and white to cover up for some of that.  But seriously, look at that face . . . .

The professional also got this shot of us together.  I thought I should post this one because so many of my blog readers think Carter looks just like his dad.  In this shot, you can see there is a little of me in there also.

The photo below is taken when Max is closer to 2 months.  I have shown a bunch of other photos of him at around this same age in previous posts so I will skip ahead to 3 month pictures.



I don’t have nearly as many pictures of Max, as I do of Carter at this same age.  It’s been a little harder to get him to smile for the camera, and I just don’t have as much time to be constantly snapping photos.  Max has been a very good baby though, so it’s not that.  He smiles, coos, and talks a lot, but somehow it’s just never when the camera is out.  I will have to keep trying!

My most recent knitting project has been the monster booties in the photo  above and the monster softie in the photo below.


Yes, I am that dorky, but then again, you probably knew that.  I just couldn’t resist making it for him.  Plus, my husband says I better do it now while he is still too young to voice an opinion about having to wear all the dorky hand-made things. (You can find more details about the monster stuff on my Ravelry page).

Max’s favorite things to do right now are eat, sit up so he can see what is going on, and kick (as shown in the photo below).  He is also a pretty good sleeper.  He almost slept through the last night – if you call 5:30 am sleeping through the night – which I don’t.  He has to make it to at least 6:30 before he is officially sleeping through the night.  I really don’t mind getting up once a night with him.  He is usually extra cuddly at that time of night – all sleepy and in his soft footie pajamas.  Pretty soon cuddles will be few and far between, so I take advantage 😉

These last two shots were taken this morning.  I think they pretty much capture his little personality right now.  He just lights up whenever you talk to him or give him a few smiles.

    He is sooo adorable Heather! It’s hard to keep camera out and ready with a toddler and a baby, so don’t be too hard on yourself 🙂

    My 15yr old grandson is named Max after my mom, Maxine, who we lost when my daughter was pregnant with him so now when I see the title Max’s pictures I have to stop for a moment. I love seeing the pictures and it reminds me of when my Max was that age which seems like yesterday at times. Keep the postings coming, both the boys are adorable.
