Mr. Little Benjamin

Benjamin is home and united with his adoring sisters and brother! Thank you for praying. We’re grateful that Melanie was able to avoid a C-Section, have Benjamin close to when the doctor wanted, and that he didn’t need NICU time.

Anna and Mary were awesome babysitters since Tuesday afternoon when Nathan and Melanie went to the hospital. They are such fun, dedicated aunts and do well keeping law and order!

Enjoy these pictures showing the joy Benjamin has already brought.

Melanie has been such an amazing, UNcomplaining trooper despite the difficult pregnancy!

I can’t get over all that dark hair!

Such cuteness!

Buddy loves his brother!

“He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good;
and what doth the Lord require of thee,
but to do justly, and to love mercy,
and to walk humbly with thy God?”
Micah 6:8

  1. His baby pictures look just like Christina’s! So precious! Very happy for you all!

    I know: doesn’t he?!!

  2. Absolutely precious!! So much cuteness and sweetness in this post! Grateful to God for His blessings in their lives- what a treasure of children they have!

  3. Congratulations to you all! The children are growing up so fast that I can’t keep up with their ages. I believe that Drew is 2 if I am correct. What about the girls’ ages?


    Yes, Drew is 2. The girls are 4, 6, and 8.

  4. What a wonderful blessing from the Lord! We rejoice with you and all the family. Your family has been an inspiration to us for several years now. We attended the last two conferences in Orlando (one with Uriah disabled and the last without). My son had several personal interactions with Nathan in ITonramp, which encouraged him. And today, we had one of our sons finally buy his house debt-free. We are so thankful to the Lord, and magnify His name. And we thank Him for sending encouraging people like the Maxwells who have lived out His principles and desire to share that vision with others. Praise the Lord for little Benjamin and his godly parents who follow Him. May God continue to bless you all!

    Wow! Thank you for sharing about your son purchasing his home debt free. Praise the Lord!

  5. Awww he is soooo cute! I love his dark hair- its so precious! Drew looks so happy to have a baby brother 🙂

    Praise the Lord for his goodness!
    Love Claire & Family

  7. LOVE all the pictures – my favorites are the last two :)Love his name! Was his middle name chosen in honor of grandpa? 😉 Love his name (and the rest of the kids)! We’ve enjoyed watching the “pattern” develop lol 🙂 Wishing Melanie a swift recovery! I’m sure you aunts are incredible blessings to her!!!


  8. Power of prayer! Thank the Lord for this sweet little boy.

    Love that second to last picture of Drew and Benjamin. Adorable.

  9. He is just a handsome little bundle of joy. The little Maxi kids look like they just love their “live” baby doll. I hope Melanie gets a chance to hold him!

    Congratulations Maxwell family!

  10. Sweet sweet pictures. So happy that all went well and the family is home together. What a bunch of cuties. Praying that Melanie is doing well. She certainly has some great helpers.


  11. Congratulations!!! What a precious little boy!

    How neat…I was due the day after Melanie with our third daughter and she also arrived a little early… on Feb. 22!!! 🙂

    Rejoicing with you,

    Excited about your little girl, too! Praise the Lord and congratulations to our Canadian friends.
