I've never been more smitten with anything than I was with him in the first three years of his life. The easy to come laughs, the peaceful little sighs and the eyes that were too big for his tiny little face. Oh those eyes. They are exactly the color of his Dad's, but his are topped by long, curly eyelashes. I think the whole entire world is more beautiful when I look at his eyes.
Four years later I am no less smitten. He is witty, charming and sentimental to a fault. He has a heart bigger than Texas and is the most loyal friend. ever. He gives 110% to everything and has my most sincere admiration for his commitment. He is ridiculously funny and far too wise for his years. He talks about when he was here before and I believe every word.
He loves sourdough toast with lots of butter, mint chip ice cream cones and likes cucumbers better than carrots. His laugh can make my whole day. Every. Single. Time.
You hear how a baby can change your life, but I never knew how true that was until Max. I love you so much, Angel Boy.
