Max is still a pretty good eater too. No change in his favorites (we swear he's part Mexican and we call him our little Max-ican) which are black beans, rice, and avocado any way you serve it (but guacamole is the BEST). His favorite restaurant is Chipotle, or any taqueria in the vicinity. He loves fruit, especially watermelon. Although he gets a variety each morning for breakfast, his preference is oatmeal with a little yogurt, honey, and raisins thrown in. He even has an "OATMEAL! OATMEAL!" chant & dance he does some mornings after getting dressed to give us a signal as to what he wants for breakfast. Veggies can be a challenge sometime (unless it's corn or peas) so we serve those up from the mash-ups or happy-tot packs so he can get some dark greens in his meals.
Max is an independent and outgoing kid. He is insistent on doing things on his own right now, such as putting on his socks, combing his hair, and putting his own dishes away. He tends not to shy away from strangers, but can sometimes be hesitant when alot of people are around and he just woke up. He tests us constantly with what he can do or not, and yes, he whines and throws tantrums. However, he gets over them quickly enough once we are firm or ignore him.
Max is such a fun little guy right now and we are soaking up every moment. Terrible twos? Maybe some days, but the good is really outweighing the "terrible" :)
