In my zeal to follow Ben through his journey towards recovery, I have been a little neglectful about documenting the equally exciting accomplishments of Hank and Max. Oh my little Matsy-boy. Seemingly overnight, Max went from speaking in one or two word phrases to speaking in complete sentences! Some little light bulb must have just turned on, because Max is suddenly just talking like crazy! Its been so fun to watch him make new linguistic discoveries and see his satisfaction when he is finally able to express himself--and I love watching more of his cute little personality emerge!
"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep a record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences." Gordon B. Hinckley, 2006
