Happy FIFTH birthday!

Tomorrow Isaac turns 5 – FIVE! It seems like he blows our minds just a little bit more each year, this year has been no different.
I remember 5 years ago, being in the hospital on bed rest, well into my second week – not having any clue what would be happening just 24 hours later. Isaac called the shots from day one, he arrived with a fight in him that no doubt has saved his life more than once. We knew that night that we had a special little boy, we never imagined how special.
Tomorrow we honor a little boy who has overcome odds, seeming insurmountable odds at times. He has shown us what it means to love, and what it means to fight. Ultimately we have a child who may physically be 5, but is wise so far beyond 5 years. His empathy and love have taught us how to be better people, and his fight has shown us that we have an ability to fight harder than we ever imagined.
Birthdays around here have become a pretty big deal, as we now realize how much we have to celebrate. There were times when we didn’t know what would become of Isaac – when you bring home a 13 month old baby who has no ability to even sit on his own the future seems bleak. The things Isaac has accomplished since then are mind blowing. He never stops exceeding our expectations.
This year Isaac is sick the night before his birthday, which means he’ll probably still be sick on his birthday. I’m sad that he won’t be at school to celebrate his special day, but our goal is get well enough to enjoy the Fresh Beat Band Concert Wednesday night, where his buddy Shout will once again be leaving him backstage passes – what an amazing gift for this amazing boy!
The birthday fairy is about to get to work decorating above the birthday boy’s bed, then she’ll spend some time remembering the very scary night he was born and whisper a few sweet nothings in his ear….
