Birthday party

Isaac slept in on the day of his party, waking up at 9:15! As I brought him downstairs, he was rubbing sleep out of his eyes, then staring in amazement and wonder at all of the colorful decorations Mom and I had put up the night before. He pointed and ooh’ed and aah’ed with the biggest smile on his face at the giant honeycomb balls.

He was thrilled when everyone gathered ’round and sang “Happy Birthday” and had a huge smile on his face the whole time.  He gave his best effort to blow out his candle, but couldn’t quite get it (Mama had to help out).

He had his very first taste of sugar (just a teeny taste, mind you), but his real dessert was his favorite – strawberries – with some tasty ice cream from the farm.

After playing, eating lunch, and chowing down on dessert, Uncle Ben brought out the pinata!  The kiddos all got to take a whack at it – several whacks, in fact.

After all the excitement of the pinata, Isaac took a moment to cuddle with his Mama.

And of course, there was a present to open!

Our friends’ daughter took a shine to Isaac, and gave him a couple smooches.  He loved it…and leaned in for more!

It was a lovely day.  Isaac really enjoyed himself – he loves being around people and especially enjoyed following the big kids around.  It just amazes me to think that a year ago to the day, I was meeting my son for the very first time.  What a wonderful thing to be celebrating my little guy’s first year!

We are truly blessed.
