Gina - how exciting that you get to find out the sex soon. I love the idea of making it part of your New Years plans.
Christina - Yea for Aliya not being sick anymore. It must be such a relief.
Max is doing well. He's growing like a weed and doing more and more things everyday. It's funny how much they mimic everything you do. On the weekends when I make breakfast, I always wrap my eggs and meat in a tortilla and my dad told me that the other morning when he gave Max some sausage and a piece of tortilla he was trying to do the same. So cute! He's not really saying any new words, but he is talking all the time. He babbles so much and makes such weird sounds with inflections and everything. It literally sounds like he's having a conversation with you, just in another language. I usually just make up the other end of the converstation and go along with it. He's not really a climber, but does like to try to get into small spaces which is funny because he is such a big boy, he usually doesn't fit.
Hope everyone has a good holiday!
