Isaiah's 1st Birthday

Sunday, July 22, 2012
When I received Isaiah's referral on November 5th of last year he was almost 5 months old. I knew there were precious moments of his life that I had already missed out on and I knew there would be milestones that I would miss while waiting to bring him home. It was my constant prayer that the Lord would allow Isaiah to be home with his family for his 1st birthday, and I am so thankful for that answered prayer!!

When Isaiah came home he was 10 1/2 months old, so in between transitioning, bonding, attaching and finding our new normal, this crazy momma was busy planning a little celebration for my sweet boy!! I decided to go with "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" theme because believer it or not, my little guy reminds me a lot of that little caterpillar in the fact that he can eat and eat and eat and still be hungry, Ha!! I loved how everything turned out and am especially thankful for my sweet BFF who stayed at my house until almost 2am helping me with the famous cake balls, that became our little own caterpillar.

The party was wonderful, full of laughter and joy as we celebrated this precious little boy the Lord chose to bless our lives with. Although he has only been home 3 short months, it feels like he has always been a part of our family. I have always said that God hand picks the children who are joined into families through the miracle of adoption and I am reminded of that every day I look at my little 13 month old bubbly happy boy, who always has a smile on his face and a slobbery kiss for his mommy. Thank you Lord for the blessing of adoption. It truly is a beautiful thing!! Enjoy the pictures!!
