Maxie was born on October 7, 2010. We were so excited that he came a full month early. From the beginning, Maxie was a complete love and joy. He was the first grandchild for his mommy's parents and the second for his daddy's. He was the apple of our eyes. He made us happy every single day. Maxie was an easy and happy baby. He made parenting very easy and fun. He smiled all of the time, was easy to travel and go places with. He loved being read to. His favorite book was Goodnight Moon - he knew the words so well that you could just whisper the words in his ears when he was upset and he would quiet right down. Maxie loved yams, greek yogurt and bananas. Maxie was a sweet soul. He loved everyone and was loved by so many. We miss him every minute and can hardly understand how it is possible that we lost our beautiful baby boy. We are trying to make sense of life without him. It is a struggle to live each day without our Maxie.
