I was just telling a friend today, I remember all of my uncertain feelings when I found out I was pregnant with Max. It was the day after my precious grandfather had died and my emotions were already so high. So many times it's hard for us to see the big picture. As I was pregnant with him, my dad declined and as most of you know, passed away when I was 36 weeks pregnant with Max. Max will never get to know my dad here on earth and it often makes me sad. At the same time I am saddened, I am so grateful Maxwell reminds me all the time just how precious life is. He also happens to be one of the sweetest babies I know! Max also reminds me that often times, God does know better. He knew a precious little one to hold would help me through the sadness. He knew the life that Max would add to our family.
So here we are...Saturday marks the one year anniversary of my dad passing and this past weekend Max was 11 months old. Here's just a handful of images that show Max in all his sweetness!
The light bothers me in this one but I love the moment more than I love the technicalness.....
He's a crawling machine!
Drool comes with the territory!
A favorite because it's so "him"
