Happy Birthday Max!

Before Max was born, I never would have believed that there could be room in our family or room in my heart for any baby besides Hank. Without diminishing anything from Hank, from the moment Max was born, he instantly carved out his own place in my heart. Our family and my life would not be the same without Max. I am so grateful that Max is a part of our family. It has been a privilege and a joy to have spent the last year getting to know him and love him and be his mom. Happy Birthday Max!

Fun things about Max:
* He can say Mama, Dada, Nana, doggie, and more
* Max loves to eat. His favorites are strawberries, yogurt, and all types of bread. He also loves his sippy cup and whenever he catches someone drinking something, he complains until some of the beverage is poured into his sippy cup.
* Max just cut down to one nap per day: He sleeps about 11 hours at night and takes a two - three hour nap in the afternoon.
* Max loves his Daddy. Whenever Dad comes home, Max holds his arms out to Dad to be picked up.
* Max only has two teeth, bottom center.
* Max likes to dance to music and make his own music on the pots and pans
* Just a week and a half ago Max started army crawling - he's moving at his own pace and thats fine with me.
* Max is a big kid. I won't have his official stats until his appointment next week, but he's weighing upwards of 26.5 pounds.
* Max can wave and give kisses
* Max loves the bathtub, throwing balls, swinging, hunting for bits on the carpet
* Max thinks its hysterical when Hank plays boo with him or chases him on his knees.
I love you Max!
