It seems only fitting that the day my baby turns one, he wakes up at 4:30 am. If he were older, he might have been dreaming about presents, just as excited as he would be if it were Christmas morning, and maybe that would be what woke him up so early. Since he's only 1, however, I'm pretty sure that the idea of presents isn't one that he can grasp yet. So, I wonder what woke him this morning. Possibly a bad dream, a full diaper, a stomach ache, tooth pain. Personally, I'd like to think that he just wanted to see me, and that he couldn't wait until his customary 6:30.
This past Saturday we celebrated Isaac's birthday with a party. The guest list included lots of his friends. We had a time for presents and a time for Isaac to take his first bite of cake. He didn't dive into it, but I think he liked it. He received lots of wonderful gifts. Although we were fortunate to have his Oregon family and friends at the party, we sorely missed the Comptons and the Furmans. It is my prayer that one day we can all celebrate birthdays together - Oregonians, Californians, and Pennsylvanians alike.
more. Thank you for letting me be your earthly mother.
Each day I lean on the strength of your Father in heaven to help me steer you in the right direction.
I will do my best to be worthy of the cause.
