Today is my oldest son's birthday. I can't believe it's been three years since he was born. Maxton is such a sweet boy. He loves to help in the kitchen and in the laundry room, He'll even give me a hand with the vacuum. Max is a very affectionate child and tries hard to be kind to others. Ben and I are so blessed to have him in our family. We are looking forward to all the doors that begin to open once you turn 3, for example: He is starting preschool next year, I just signed him up for gymnastics, swimming lessons this summer, and being able to go the Eagle's Nest at the grocery store (for those that don't know what the eagle's nest is-it's a little daycare type place with all kinds of fun things to do and an employee of the grocery store that watches the children while their parent shop for groceries...pretty exciting stuff!).
A few things I'm not happy about with each new year and that wish could last forever: watching him grow by leaps and bounds right before my eyes, how he calls everyone "he" regardless if they're a boy or girl, his baby skin that he still has thankgoodness, that he enjoys snuggling and wanting to be around Ben and I, all his excitement when he figures something out for the first time, that he likes to sit right in my lap while I read him a story, that he has to have a kiss and a love (hug) before anyone leaves his presences-the list could go on and on, I just need to continue enjoying every moment. Happy Birthday my Sweet Boy!
Last weekend we had a little pre birthday party with Ben's parents who were in town. Max didn't complain...who would if you got to celebrate not only early, but twice!
