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!!!!!!
