Guess who's ONE today! Maxwell Paul Celusta, that's who!

9 pounds, 3 ounces
21" long

Our darling Mackey,

Our hearts have grown and burst with so much love because of you. You brighten our days with your toofers smile and silly giggle, and you touch our lives with your sweetness and loving spirit. You are such an adorable, hilariously funny, smart, extra snuggly, amazingly beautiful little guy, and we love you to infinity plus one! Thank you for being our son, for being Jasper's best friend, for choosing us to be your parents, and for being YOU. You and your brother are the greatest gifts we've ever been given, and the world is a brighter place because you're in it.

Cheers to the birthday boy! We love you so much, Maxwell!

Beachy Keen!

Another fun beach day, with all four of us this time!

Cold Toes!

Really cold toes!

This little guy might be a big fan of the ocean. :)

Our sandy silhouettes! 

Mr. Teeny Tiny leading the way...

What's that in the sky? Is it a bird? A plane?
(It was, in fact, a plane.)

Mama's hearts, right here.

Almost one year ago to the day, we were on this same beach, and Max was in Mama's belly...

Now look at us!

I know! It's hysterical!

Awwww, kisses.

All right, that's enough.

Mackey really wanted to show fellow beach-goers his bubble wand.

Here he goes...

Aaaaaand she liked it.

Oh, Bubblewand. You complete me.

Beach days are the best days!

Brothers at the Beach!

While Mommy recovered from a bout of strep throat, Nathan took both boys to the beach... this being Max's first visit! 

What the hell is this.

What the hell is this!

This went on...

For about 23 minutes.

Fascinating. :)

Can I eat it?

I'm gonna eat it.

Hey, Brother, wait for me --



And, look, Ma... Jazz Hands!

(Get it?)

Taking a rest...

So cute.

The sweetest of Beach Bums.

Of all the toys I have to play,

I'd choose my brother any day.
