two exciting celebrations!

Yesterday and today are big days in Maxwell's life. Can you guess what they are?

December 21st is the anniversary of Max's discharge from his 6-month hospital stay at Children's. It's been three years and he has beaten the odds absolutely. When he was discharged, I was warned repeatedly that he was on "thin ice" and would probably face numerous more hospital stays and surgeries. We have had a few, but nothing like predicted. We are truly blessed!

And today is December 22nd...Max is 3 1/2 years old! WOW! Happy "1/2" birthday Mighty are amazing! :)

Perhaps Max could feel the excitement because he was going crazy on his trampoline this morning. He seriously jumped for 20 minutes!
