I can’t believe a week ago, you turned 7! Where in the world is time going? In the usual manner of celebrating like we do, we celebrated your birthday all week AND all weekend long. We know a good thing when we see something and you, my love, are a good thing. 🙂
Seven years ago, at 10:15 p.m., God brought you into our world and my heart has never been the same. I didn’t know that I could love another son as much as I loved Nate, but in typical “God and His ways”…He showed me differently. Instantly, the moment you were born, I was in love all over again. My heart had doubled in size and your daddy and I were over the moon in love with you, just like we had experienced when Nate was born.
As I became a mom to the two best boys ever, I saw how unique each of you were. I remember when you were about six months old, our cousin Annie asking me, “Ang, does Max ever cry?” to which I had to stop and ponder…After thinking for awhile, I responded, “Ummm….no, not really. When he’s hungry, he just roots and grunts. I guess I can’t think of many times when he has cried.” #truth #youweresuchahappybaby
And that’s been you, Maxim Sage…so easy going and such a happy boy. You have such a tender spirit and yet, you can let out the best belly laugh at any given moment, too. For being one of the biggest boys in first grade, you sure are a gentle giant. Not to mention the fact that though there are four years between you and your big brother, you both wear the same shoe size now and you only weigh about three pounds less than Nate.
Speaking of your big brother, Daddy and I love seeing how you and Nate truly are the best of friends. You boys love playing basketball together, exploring out at the farm together, and are always having fun together playing with your buddies in the neighborhood. With your brother as one of your biggest fans and fiercely protective of you, you know that Nate is always watching out for you. #brotherlylove
As you are growing up, it’s so neat to see you do what you love. You love reading, writing, spending time outdoors, and playing all manner of sports.
Maxim, you make our family complete.
We thank God for you and are so blessed that He picked me and Daddy to be your mom and dad. You make our hearts full of love and we are so proud of the sweet, young gentleman that you are growing into. Maxim, we are so happy to see you love God with all of your heart…that is the most important thing! Keep your eyes on Him and He will guide you and bless you!!!
Happy 7th Birthday Maxim Sage!! We love you always!!
xoxo ~ Mom and Dad
