At this time, exactly one year ago, this tiny little human made his way into this crazy world and instantly became our entire universe. I don't remember what life was like before him. I mean sure, I got more sleep and had a lot less stuff to lug around, but it truly was incomplete.
Max, I don't know what I did to deserve you but you are my everything. You are funny, smart, caring, loving, stubborn and strong willed all at once. You have taught me more about life in this last year than I've ever learned and for that I am forever grateful. You have taught me what it means to be "mom strong" and you've been my shining light in some of life's hardest times. I know you need me but my love, I need you even more. You are my strength and my why. You have been a fighter since day one; you are meant to be here and I know you're going to accomplish big things, baby boy. •
One year ago today our world changed and I've loved every second of this ride. The joy you bring anyone you come in contact with is contagious and you literally have the ability to light up a room. I could go on forever but I'll just say this-- I can't thank God enough for blessing us with you. Your dad and I fall more in love with you each and every day and are so proud of the little boy you're becoming. Happy First Birthday, my little man!! "I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, as long as I'm living my baby you'll be".
