And after some encouragement, he discovered how to rip off the wrapping paper – with some help from his brother and sister!
But by far his favourite part of the day was cake time. What’s not to like – cake, singing, clapping and a really interesting candle to try and grab!
It didn’t take him long to dive into the cake.
But it was a pretty messy affair!
I just can’t believe this little man is 1. I really can’t. I am SO proud of how far he has come.
One year has passed since we welcomed this bundle of joy into our lives, and he has made us smile every day since. A fighter from the start, Max has taught us all a lot about the world, about how to find joy in the simplest things, and how the heart can expand endlessly to welcome another family member.
I am thankful for this blessing.
