2 whole years ago this sweet little angel baby came into our lives.
With barely a push, he made his arrival.
All 8 lbs. 11 oz. and 21 in. of him
And he has been charming the pants off of us ever since.
And in the blink of an eye:
We had a new house to live in, room for his wobbly little legs to start walking and running around in.
This last year has flown even faster than the first. And Max has grown like a weed. He's a big solid chunk of all boy. He loves to run, and run and throw and hit and wear tutus and tease his sister and kick and make silly faces, talk endlessly and just MELT me with all of his "MOM...I wuv you!(s)"
So, even though his actual birthday was on Oct. 20th and i was in the middle of Oliver techs and we sort of just passed over the day, he wasn't upset with me.
Last week, I decided it was time to make him some cupcakes, sing him Happy Birthday and invite Gramma Peg over to bring her birthday presents.
And you know what....he thought it was the greatest thing ever! And so did Maggie, 'cause she got to help make the cupcakes (which was hysterical in and of itself).
Seriously, my heart bursts and overflows when I see this little face.
(judge not taht we used matches 'cause I couldn't find candles)
His blow out method is stellar.
He was very pleased with the song AND his blow out ability.
Now....bring on the gifts.
Gramma got a wild notion that a GIANT tub o' cheese puffs was the perfect gift for this bottomless pitt of a 2 year old.
He was very pleased.
And every day he sees them, he asks for some of his "Happ Birtday"
Then there was this sweet little (big) bear. So soft and cuddly. It's brought about a few fights between brother and sissy.
But oh the sweet loves.
And there were also some adorable new jammies which I wish i had a pic of, 'cause really.....so cute!
Thanks Gramma Peg for making this little boy happy.
And I told you....he enjoyed himself some cheese puffs for SURE!
Thank you Maximus for coming to OUR family.
