Maddox is 41 months old (almost 3.5). He is getting taller and leaner, loosing the baby fat and looking like a little boy. He is wearing size 3T for most clothes. Still taking an afternoon nap from about 1-3pm. He doesn't always sleep, but he has to stay on his bed quietly for two hours. He still does not like milk or cheese. Favorite food is a peanut butter sandwich. Loves his Raffie.
Maddox is turning into the sweetest, compassionate, spunkiest little man. He is really starting to blossom and is rapidly turning into a big boy right before our eyes. He has been taking swimming lessons at a local gymnastics facility where he spends the morning swimming and the rest of the day playing in the gym. HE LOVES IT. I laugh every time I drop him off because he walks into the gym and immediately starts running. RUNNING. RUNNING. His teachers laugh because they say he runs all day long (I believe it, he is starving and exhausted when I pick him up). They all seems to really like him there and comment on how polite, smart and funny he is. He definitely is a ball of energy! He has learned so much while at swimming and his fear of the water going over his head is officially a thing of the past. He will jump in the water and go completely under and he loves it. I am so happy that he has overcome his fear and now enjoys swimming like a big boy!!
As always, he is continually surprising us with how smart he is and how observant he is of his surroundings. He has a much better sense of direction than I do and he can tell you how to get home from anywhere in Lubbock (Seriously).
He loves to play and has recently started playing in his room by himself for small periods of time. This is a huge accomplishment. He is such a people person and rarely enjoys being by himself (which can make for very long days for this momma), but now he asks to go play in his room for a little while. It is so much fun watching his imagination at work!
He loves books. He loves to "read" them and loves to be read to. He can quote almost all the books in his room, and he has a lot of books. I think there will be several nights in our future where I have to go in his room and make him turn off his lamp and go to bed. He already sits up with a flashlight and a book before he goes to bed.
He is not shy. Madd will talk to anyone. He is a go getter and dives in head first at everything he does.
