Then, six months later, we decided his name should actually be Murphy. We could tell by the longing in his eyes: he had been misnamed.
Sometimes we slip into old habits and accidentally call him Max, but that's okay since it's his middle name now. He answers to many names.
Now we call him Murphy, Murph, Murphs, Murphy Purphy, StopEatingPoop, and Murphington.
And most recently, Tyler has started calling him Julie.
