I can't believe its been a year since we welcomed little Max into our crazy home! Since this picture he's gotten used to us all a bit more and we don't seem to promote such a stark reaction, so its a win-win.
He's been such a fun baby, in that he'd actually sleep when it was dark outside, no day-long scream-a-thons, lots of happy smiles and a cuddly little face to kiss!
He's become amazingly tough with three older siblings who mostly want to play with him, but occasionally think the walk-by punch is a good idea. He already loves wrestling with daddy and the brothers.
I'm sure the more kids you have the faster the years go by. It definitely doesn't feel like a year, its amazing how fast newborns become babies, become toddlers. I feel as if I've forgotten so much of past first years, even though they were only a few short years ago! The babyness is all at once a lot of work but so much fun. I'm always a little sad when a first birthday rolls around, even though it means such great steps towards a little more independence for them, which I usually love as well!
He's so loved by his siblings and loves them back so much its so exciting to see, and I really shouldn't take it for granted. Max's loveable and easygoing nature has most definitely come out early, and can I say that I think he'll be one of those people that everyone likes? I'm sure every mom says that about every child, but his personality already seems so friendly and fun to be around. He's also got a great sense of humour which is also a great thing to have, I love that he finds the crazy stuff his brothers do hilarious!
Happy Birthday to my little man! We all love you!
