Happy 8th Birthday Maxim!

Dear Maxim,

It’s hard to believe that today you are 8 years old. EIGHT!!! Time is flying by so fast!! I can remember the day you were born so vividly. My water broke at 7:00 while we were eating Papa Murphy’s pizza and you meant business because three hours later, you arrived at 37 1/2 weeks! You came into the world at 10:15 p.m. and from the moment you were born, you had Daddy and I wrapped around your little finger. Instantly, we could tell what a sweet spirit you have…so content and so lovable!

I love looking back at the many baby pictures we have of you. You were such a happy, easy-going baby. I remember my cousin, Annie, asking me when you were about six months old if you ever cried. It was hard for me to think of a time you actually cried because you were SUCH a happy baby!

I love this verse…”For this child I prayed, and the LORD has granted me my petition which I asked of Him. 1 Samuel 1:27″ We prayed for you and God blessed us so much when He created YOU!

We love watching you and your big brother play together. You and Nate are truly blessed to not only be best brothers, but also best friends. And being a mommy to you and Nate is the BEST job I’ll forever love.

Maxim, watching you do what you love is such a joy. You love basketball, football, running, and being outdoors. And, oh, you are an animal lover of cute kittens,  sweet puppies, and all varieties of wildlife! You just can’t get enough of learning about wildlife!
