The Max year in review; how did your kids wow you?
These are my Max highlights of the year:
January: Max shows us how much imagination he's got.
February: Max falls for Peeps.
March: Max uses both hands without prompting.
April: Max plays ball for the first time on a team.
May: Max's vocabulary grows.
June: A Bill of Rights For Parents of Kids With Special Needs, dedicated to Max and all of our kids.
July: Max rides his mini tractor like a maniac.
August: Holy cow—Max gets stem cell therapy.
September: Max tries his hand at fishing.
October: Max decides he would like his Daddy to be eaten by a snake. Also, Max discovers purple.
November: Max's independence continues to emerge.
December: Max learns how to say and spell out his name. And sing the Spongebob Squarepants song. I never thought I'd be grateful to Spongebob Squarepants.
I'm hoping 2010 brings lots more progress, for Max and for your kids. too. May they grow stronger and healthier and even cuter, exceed our greatest expectations, and continue to bring lots and lots of joy to everyone lucky enough to be part of their lives.
What were your child's biggest milestones this year?
