Future Bball Player?

It's between Bargnani and Gay all the way!Since Max was born after the regular NBA season ended, he did not have to endure the torture of yet another underwhelming season of Raptors basketball. We are hoping that he will bear witness to a new, improved, era of basketball under the realm of Brian Colangelo. In celebration of the Rap's #1 pic, Max has gotten into Raptor gear and is sure to be an exciting night of liveblogging in the RaptorBlog household.

If you are wondering about Max's stats, he is weighing in at a whopping 13 pounds at only 2 months (75th percentile) and measuring at 24.25 inches in height (95th percentile!). His wingspan needs some work as it is only 23 inches, but babies have short arms, so he has some time. At his 2 month checkup his doctor asked me if I was giving him any formula (inferring that his 4 pound weight gain and 3 inches in growth in the past month might be from overeating). I told him "Nope, he is 100% breastfed". Apparently my milk is powerful like rocket fuel.
I hate these f-ing sunglasses Mom!So, if you haven't already seen this baby, as our friend Lulu (of the famed "Lulu and Chris" says, you best "invite yourself over ASAP". He is growing by the minute!

    Max's first draft party! What fun. I hope he will be able to wind down from the excitement later. Tell him to take it easy on those chips.

    Awwwwww, that's very cute.

    Unlike Maxy, my kid is still low on Raptor gear (he can't figure out if it's wise to get a CV onesie given all the trade rumours surrounding him). On the plus side, he's got a spanking new Brazil sleeper that he gets into for World Cup games.

  3. Love the World Cup sleeper! Go Brazil! Max is working on growing out of his Raps sleeper pronto and would be happy to pass it on to Leith for the 2006-2007 season.

    Cute picture!!! Looks like Max is good and ready to cheer his team on.

    And the sunglasses? Well, that's just half the fun of having a baby...getting to dress them up.

    Keep him away from the beer - there's plenty of time for that.;-)


  5. Beer picture ... y'all are SO wrong for that!

    Second picture...SOOOO RIGHT. I've never seen a picture where he smiles. I love it. The sunglasses are gangsta!

  6. ^Or wait, upon further inspection...maybe he's crying.

    Can I get a picture of him smiling? He always looks so serious! I TOLD YOU he's an old soul! It's like he always has something on his mind besides the next feeding and the next time he's going to poop.
