Max's Birthday- We Survived Four Years!

April 12th, 2005, Maximiliano made his way into the world. Four years later and his father and I are very pleased to say he is growing, thriving, talking up a storm, leaping from great heights and enjoying everything he encounters. He's an active kid, friendly and (mostly) polite, kind to other kids and animals, eager to learn and try new things and it's a real pleasure to have him as my son. Nothing, I mean, NOTHING in my life has ever given me such joy. I always swore I would never have children, but I am so very pleased that Hubby changed my mind about that, Max is certainly the best thing that has ever happened to me. He's made me a better person in every way and for that I am forever grateful to him.

Tell Max that there are a lot of people out here who read about him and wish him the best in his life. Happy birthday, Max.

Happy birthday Max! Kelly you have done a fine job raising your son. You should be proud not only of Max but what you and hubby have accomplished. Being a parent is a hard job. Not everyone gets it right.
How did Max do snorkeling?

Your son looks adorable! I also live in Mexico in a small fishing village in Puerto Penasco. It is about a 4 hour drive from Tucson, Az. It's a wonderful place to live with one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. I find the Mexican people to be very polite and hard working. I feel safer here than I do when in Tucson. Have you had any problems in Cancun from the drug wars?

To all, thanks so much for your birthday wishes, Max is very proud to be a "big boy" now and apparently I am no longer allowed to call him "baby". I've told him you all send greetings and he says "Thanks, hola and hello!". :)

He is SO cute. Just a quick note. I took a ten day trip to Cancun at the end of February to visit some friends who moved there last year. I read your entire blog before I went and was very happy I did. I learned a LOT and encountered much of what you discuss. I have much more to share but thought I'd start by saying thanks and I've subscribed to your blog as well as added you on my blogroll. Do you have an email address? Mine is Thanks again, have a great day! Again, Max is SOOOOOOO cute!!! My favorite is the posting of all the emotions faces he had to make for school!!!!
