Prematurity Awareness Day & Max Turns Two

Max's 1st Year from Aubrey Ortega on Vimeo.

It's been one year since I made this video for my little fighter. Now he's talking and demanding and climbing and ruining and laughing and crying and ... well, you know. All that human stuff. I can hardly believe this is the same person. He's incredibly smart and strong, and I can't tell you enough how fun and hilarious he is (and many of you pointed out he has an ADORABLE smile, so I should probably acknowledge that too). :)

I know, I know, you're sick of this video. But in honor of Prematurity Awareness Day, and Max's birthday in two days, I'm posting it again. (Also because it took so many hours to make, I can't stand to let it sit without watching, lol!) For more about my adventure with my little Max, read Two Years Later.

Go give the March of Dimes some love at their website. They are saving babies every single day who are born too early, and helping the families of the babies who don't make it.

(P.S. Been wondering why there's no new pictures of Max lately? It's because he's potty training, so he rarely has any clothes on! We're not really into that kind of exposure.)


  1. I'm curious . . . is your description of Max as "ruining" the word you meant to use, or is that a Freudian slip? :)

  2. No, this was no slip. I quite purposefully wrote "ruining". ;) He does a lot of ruining! And a lot of cute-ing to make up for it.


Comments make me ultra happy! Tell me who you are, what you think, why you're here...
