3 Year Update

I can barely believe our little boy is three years old! He is cautious, sweet, bright, silly and observant. (And occasionally a little monster.) Here’s a snapshot of Max at 3. Eating Max has always been a good eater and that is still true at 3. Like any well balanced human he has breakfast 1, […]
