Happy Birthday, My Sweet Maximilian!

My baby, three whole years have flown by. Your little brother is walking now and I often remember these same sweet moments I had with you as I watch him. My emotions get the best of me when I think of how quickly you’ve grown and continue to grow. What an amazing big boy you are becoming. You are so incredibly sweet, loving, and happy. Daddy and I love your sweet little prayers, high energy, negotiation skills, and photographic memory! I love how you will out of the blue, give me besitos and huggies and say, “I love you.” We love how much you love your little brother. Thank you for being you and for another year of fun, laughter, and happiness.

Here are a few awesome things you said during your third year of life:

“I wanna go in a big, big, huge airplane, Mommy. And I wanna live in the sky!” 4/11

“Mommy, are we going to Taco Bell? Or are we going to Burrito Bell?” 6/11

Max: "Mommy, I want a scooter like the boy at the park."
Mommy: "Okay baby, maybe Santa will bring you one if you're a good boy."
Max: "For Christmas Mommy?"
Mommy: "Yes, for Christmas."
Max: "Candy canes are spicy, Mommy."
Mommy: "Yes, they are kinda spicy aren't they?"
Max: "Heavenly Father doesn't like them."
Mommy: "Heavenly Father doesn't like what?"
Max: "Candy canes."
Mommy: "Why not?"
Max: "Because they have too much sugar." 6/11

"You're the best girl in the whole wide world." 8/11

“Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for this day. Thank you for this food. Thank you for this fork. Thank you for daddy’s knee getting all better. Thank you for our new house. This I pray, Amen.” 8/11

You seriously brought tears to my eyes. I look forward to seeing Ethan hit the big "3" too, and I empathize with your feelings as a mommy. You have reason to be so proud of your little-big boy Max! ;)
