milestones...

My baby turns 10 today. Ten! Which means all the munchkins are now in double digits. They're definitely not LITTLE KIDS anymore.

It's so cliche, but so very true--it seems like Max was born a lifetime ago and yet somehow it really seems like yesterday. Rich and I were talking about it last night before drifting off to sleep...and I think that "just yesterday" feeling remains because of how vividly that time still lives in our heads. What should have been a time of pure unadulterated joy, turned out to be a very rough couple of weeks. But that's a story for another day.

Today is a day to wish this rambunctious, athletic, cat-passionate, affectionate, can't-sit-still, always-eager-to-help, reluctant-to-read, hot-tempered, messy-roomed, speedy, impulsive, shy, hands-on, goofy, and oh-so-handsome young man a very happy birthday.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAXIDOODLE!!!!!! WE LOVE YOU!!!!!!

Happy birthday, Max! Tell your sweet mom to give you an embarrassingly huge hug from me, okay? And have a most wonderful 11th year of life!

Happy birthday to your Max, that is a gorgeous picture of him. 10, hmm, my daughter is going to turn 10 at Christmas. If you lived closer, she would try to get Max interested in Dr Who, she is on a mission to get everyone to watch it! lol

Poor Max… only two years left until he turns 12, and gets entered for the Hunger Games… not that he wouldn't make an adorable little tribute!
