Today is Maxwell’s second birthday and my heart so swollen with joy, I can’t believe this special day is here. We had just returned home from Tanzania, Africa when I found out we were pregnant with this little guy. And oh, what an answer to prayer this pregnancy was for our family! I’m so thankful, my pregnancy was so easy and I enjoyed every moment of it. Like, seriously enjoyed it. Then on March 12th, 2013, Maxwell moved from my womb to my arms…
…and I’m so, so thankful I was chosen to be his mama. I remember all the things I had to learn once he was born, whether it be nursing or sleep schedules or learning to crawl or interactive play. We have enjoyed every stage of Maxwell’s life, which has made the last two years go by so quickly. Every day is an adventure with Max — and he has not only learned so much, but Max has taught us so much. It’s just fantastic that we get to be his parents. It’s like we won the lottery :)
And then there’s Max’s fun personality, nodding his head yes so convincingly when he wants something, which totally makes us laugh and give in to his requests ;) He is so confident in his role as a big brother to Natalie, that’s perhaps the most heartwarming thing to see. But for sure one of my favorite parts of mamahood is seeing the way he looks at his daddy, it’s quite the sight. Having a family that’s just bursting with love is what I live for, that’s for sure.
So we wish you the happiest second birthday, Maxwell. We love you so much, sweet boy!
Love, mommy & daddy
happy, happy birthday to your little man!
Your pictures are so sweet! Happy 2nd Birthday to Max!
Happy Birthday sweet boy! It’s been a joy to watch you grow thru your mama’s beautiful photos.
Happy birthday, Maxwell! I have to share with you, Maggie — I started reading your blog shortly before Maxwell was born because I saw your pregnancy “what I wore” posts on Pinterest. We found out we were pregnant with OUR little boy just a week after Maxwell was born. Now my little guy is 15 months and I just have loved watching Maxwell (and now Natalie) grow up! They are so precious!
Awww, thank you Laura! It’s fun to learn how someone has found my blog, so thanks for sharing! xoxo
So sweet! I love seeing all the photos! Happy birthday, Max!
Happy birthday to your cute little guy! It’s been so fun to watch him grow! :)
