oh my goodness...THIS IS AMAZING!

Guess who did this beautiful face ALL BY HIMSELF?














Yep, Max decided to completely rock my world last night...and that he did. He totally crossed off a goal on his IEP and I couldn't be any more proud!!! :) We were absolutely blown away. OH MY GOODNESS!!!

And with a little encouragement, he continued on to draw even more faces! I seriously am still absolutely in shock...WOW! WOW! WOW! I wanted to keep him up all night and just keep drawing, drawing, drawing! :)


























































Just in case you don't believe me that all of this beautiful artwork is by Maxwell...here is a video for proof! :) ENJOY! (This one he decided to get a little extra creative with the nose. Hey it takes all kinds of faces to make the world go round, right?)

WOW!WOW!WOW! is right! Vivian and I just watched this THREE times - each time it ended she said "more!".

LOVING watching Max the Artist at work (seriously, the faces he draws are really beautiful - is he drawing a series of them on paper so you can frame them?!) and Amy, I LOVE hearing the joy and celebration in your voice.

I am LOVING this milestone, Mr. Max! You, my friend, are quite a guy. WOW!

Awesome! You're going to put your IEP plan to work, they are going to have to really work to set new goals for you, there is nothing you can't can't achieve. Shoot for the moon, even if you miss you can reach out and grab a star!
