Happy Birthday Maxton!


Today is Maxton's 2nd Birthday...it was official at 11:06 this morning. It's bitter sweet watching your kids grow up...you're so happy for their growth and development, but you long to snuggle them up in a zero to three month outfit.
Maxton is so much fun, and such a tender little guy. He's never met a stranger, very outgoing and full of smiles. Some of his accomplishments include: peeing on the potty before bath time (just for fun...not trying to truly potty train yet...just a light introduction), recognizing letters, enough sign language to tell me what he wants to eat, sleeping in a big boy bed, can open the refrigerator and pull out a full gallon of milk, can bring me the phone and remote, and can open doors and flip light switches on and off. Some of his favorite things include: fruit snack made by Sunkist, puzzles, "Singing Times" videos, "Cars", buses, cars, trucks, tractors, "Sesame Street", singing along to his Laurie Berkner CD, drinking drinks with a straw, and pizza from Costco.
I love him so much...he amazes me everyday, and is such a sweetheart. I'm indeed grateful to have him in our family...what a wonderful addition. Happy Birthday my Sweet Boy!


We took Maxton to Kalahari indoor waterpark for his
Birthday...we had a ton of fun!

Happy birthday Max.....For a minute, I thought the kid was standing bare chested in snow. then I looked. Aren't you glad you have an old lady friend who needs to use her eyes more carefully?

Okay Tara, What a cool mom you are! Great way to celebrate Max's birthday at the water park and how about that awesome cake! I know yall had lots of fun. Don't you just love birthdays! (I love everyone else's, just not my own.) Our Shelby is a girl after my own heart, she loves birthday parties and especially the cake. You can tell her anything is a party and she automatically gets excited. She has so much little girl drama and excitement that she is just fun to be around. I sure hope that Reagan is a lot like her. Thank you again for having this blog and staying in touch. I guess you had better help me learn how to start a blog for our family! My love to all...

Yay Tara! My mom has figured out this whole comment thing! Now she can be more than just a "lurker" and actually leave comments too on our blogs!

I guess my step-by-step guide helped.
