Max First Day.

max's first day of school was today.  he was so, so excited!  i don't think i was giving him enough credit on everything he knows... i didn't think he really understood that he was going to school or that lilly actually goes to school everyday.  i'm not sure why i thought this, maybe because he's not able to communicate all that he knows in the big, brilliant brain of his...
he loved putting his backpack on just like his big sister:)
 the early childhood kiddos start a little after the rest of the school, so a few minutes earlier we dropped lilly of by the door she always goes in, and got back in the car to wait till it was time for his class to start. 
this was the moment i got it, i got how much that little boy of mine is taking in everyday.  he always finds a way to surprise me:) 
anyways, we got out of the car and we put his backpack back on.  i said "okay max it's time for you to go to school," and he just turned and started to run to the doors that lilly gets to go in:)  he was telling me he knew why he was there and the biggest thing he was ready... not so sure if i was, but he was and that's really all that matters!

My boy is three!

today is max's third birthday.  this morning was different then other mornings.  max woke up first, before grey and lilly.  nick and i brought the fully awake birthday boy into bed with us.  he sat between nick and i, the first thing he did was point to me and say "mom" and then to nick and say "dad" with a huge smile on his face:)  since he was in the talking mood, i asked him to say other family members names and he did!  he tried every time and was so proud of himself:)  he then signed "drink, milk, please" i responded "okay max lets go downstairs".... he then with the sweetest face signed "cookie"!  how could a mom say no to that! 
max and daddy!  i could just tell max was cheering wake up daddy, lets celebrate today's my birthday!!!

max and his cookie and milk for breakfast.  oh, and i loved this picture because i asked him who's birthday it was and he pointed right to himself!!! what a big boy:)

i just wanted to make a note that we did have yogurt and crackers with cheese (max's favorite things) after his cookie! 

Happy Birthday Little Man!!!
