Maxwell says every day, “When I grow more bigger…”
Well, Maxwell, today is your “Grow More Bigger” Day!
You are here.
Happy birthday, our precious boy.
Hopefully, one day, you’ll be able to look back at this slideshow of the first 4 years of your life and say, “I MADE IT! I grew more bigger.”
But, in the meantime, I want to share the 4 things that I have learned from you:
- Live every day practically naked. Who needs clothes when a naked bum or a good pair of underwear will do the job?
- Live every day simply. You, my son, perhaps understand the value of life more than the rest of us. Or at least most of us. And this may be the reason why you are simply content. Mud? Water? Insects? Check. Check. Check! All equals a life being well lived.
- Live every day as that pesky little/big brother. Really. You are a mess. You are a boy. Your dinosaur eats her dolly—you make her cry. You are the middle now but will be the biggest one day. You may be the pest now but will be the protector one day. You are the grossest now but will be the humor bringer one day. Live every day with your sisters as your best friends!
- Lastly, live every day eating bacon! Okay—you probably eat a tad too much. But you show me to savor what is given to me! And that is you, Maxwell Loren. A gift from God whose life was miraculously spared. And we will never ever stop thanking God for the gift of Y-O-U!
We love you now and will forever, our boy. Sto lat,
Your Momma, Your Daddy, Your Adelyne, and Your GoGo Baby (aka Your Josephine)
Now for a classic…And, yes, Paul, we do say it is his birthday!
