Maxwell Jared,
SIX years old and in the first grade?! Can it be?! It's true what they say, time does fly. Six years ago after 38 hours of labor you were born. You were HUGE. I remember when you came someone proclaimed" This kid should be walking!!" You were big,but you were so handsome. So sweet. Your Dad and me didn't know how life changing having a child would be, but we wouldn't trade all the highs and lows for anything. There were a lot of tears shed those first few weeks, we had NO IDEA what we were doing and after the long labor and delivery with NO sleep we were beside ourselves with stress and anxiety. Lucky for us, both of your Grandmother's stepped in and were a tremendous help to your Dad and I those first few weeks of your life.
It's hard to believe that was so long ago, and now, six years later we are living in another state and you have two younger brothers.
Being the oldest you are the leader of the pack of our boys. Evan and Liam look up to you for everything and you are so compassionate to them both. It's sweet to see you care for them, your love for them. You keep the peace and rarely fight with them. You are considerate and caring.
We are so thankful for you, and you have so many in your life who love and care for you deeply, who pray for you as you grow into a young man. We pray that you will have a desire to love, honor and serve the Lord with all your heart.
Happy 6th Birthday Skippper.
your Mama
