8 years ago my life changed forever


8 years ago Max made me a mommy. I can't believe he is already turning 8. Where did that little baby go? The one that could fit all snuggled into my lap while I soaked him up. The stubborn one that would not breastfeed, requiring me to be attached to a breast pump all day and all night (well, it felt like it anyway) until he got the hang of it 3 1/2 months later. The easy going one that only cried if he was hot or really hungry. My little snuggle bug. He is still a snuggle bug just a much bigger one! He now picks on siblings to no end, which he is doing right now. He is still one of the most stubborn people I know! That can be a good thing at times, right?

I miss my little baby but love him even more with each day that passes. Happy birthday to my 'big' baby!

Happy Birthday Max!

I know what you mean. I don't want to do it over again, but I wish I could travel back in time and visit my "babies" when they were still babies again. but, I wouldn't trade them for the world for how they are right now either!

Happy Birthday, Max!

I love that he's so stubborn. While selfish, it makes me feel better about my little goat-headed boy.

Have I mentioned how darling he is? He probably wouldn't appreciate that, but he is.
