Two cute pictures of Max and a bit about attachment
a lot of the carrying (Ergo carrier rocks!), the feeding (especially treats), and the bottles. We are starting to see the benefits of this. Today is the first day that Max has really let me hold is hand or pick him up voluntarily. He also actually relaxed in the Ergo today and dozed off with his head against my chest. You can just see those little bits of trust starting to form. I know that we're not seeing all of his growth and firsts in life. But, we are delighting in seeing his personality and his trust in us unfold, just like we did for Ellie when she was a baby. This is a wonderful journey and I know we're just at the beginning, but even during those tough moments we are feeling so lucky that we get to experience this.
