I turn my back for three days and look what happens…

August 10, 2011

Dear Max

I missed you enormously while I was gone on my “work” trip (hard to call it work when it involves five-star service, but please don’t hate me). So I got back, and you bolted towards me and I hugged you hard. And then you bolted into my car to play. Fair enough. You dig cars.

So since coming home, I’ve been noticing that even though I was gone for *only* three days, you’ve evolved a bit. Your canines are mostly out now, you seem bouncier and more full of smiles, and while we were in Woolies you only wanted the salad ingredients and veggies off the shelf (usually you point and grunt towards fruit, cupcakes, sweets and chips). You are showing more confidence as well – at our haven Serendipity, you bounded in, and seemed to be more adventurous – climbing up and through the jungle gyms, and going down the slide almost unassisted. May I add here that I think and fear you have inherited my I Can’t Catch Or Throw A Ball gene? It could also be an age thing (you aren’t yet two), so let me not panic.

You are literally changing before our eyes. I look forward to each day watching your strides.


You'll notice a pattern - you aint letting go of that bottle!

    Hahaha! Love the bottle hanging from his mouth. It’s so sad that they seem to grow so much quicker when we’re not around…

    i can empathize. i've been a victim of si joint and lower back pain for the better part of a year following an injury at a race last february. after trying (and trying) to push through and achieve 'active recovery', had to take 5 weeks off in dec/jan and focus on strength and non-impact stuff like bike since my body had adapted (asymmetrically) to running with pain on the right side.hope you can avoid this — but don't forget to listen to your body!
