Max Turns Two!

Lil' Midget Max, my perfect godson, turns TWO today! This little guy means more to me than words can express, and I can't wait to celebrate with him! We have established a tradition {doing it twice makes it a full-blown tradition, right?} that I will get him a birthday cake {cupcake for now} on his exact birthday. I'm sure he'll have big, fancy cakes for his birthday parties, but Aunt Kansas is fully responsible for the birthday cake on the actual day!

In the spirit of "Five on Friday," here are five of my favorite moments with the little midget over the past two years:

One: September 5, 2012

September 5, 2012: Maximino Martin Gonzalez is born

Two: July 21, 2013

July 21, 2013: Max's Baptism

Three: September 5, 2013

September 5, 2013: Max Turns ONE!

Four: Coming to see me in my wedding dress

Lil Man couldn't come to the wedding, so he got all dressed up and brought me flowers at my final dress fitting!

Five: First Sleepover

Kickin' it on the couch with Ry Ry...watching a little golf on TV

I can't just stop here are a few more of my favorite pics from Max's first two years of life:

Cheerin' on my beloved Jayhawks during March Madness!

How ornery {and grown up!!} does he look?!!?

Here's to your birthday, lil' man. You've brought so much fun and happiness into my life for the past two years, and I look forward to all the memories that we'll make in the years to come. I love you so much and am so grateful to be a part of your life. Thank you for letting me be your "Aunt Kansas."

Happy Birthday, Max!
