The birthday boy



My dear Isaiah. Thank you for keeping us laughing, smiling and hopeful during these very rough times. You are such a shining light in our lives and we could not love you more. Happy 3rd Birthday my little one!

Right now I'm in the midst of frantically cleaning the house (which includes cleaning my sewing room, yikes!), baking a Thomas cake, and preparing for a large birthday party tomorrow. To add to that, John had to go into the hospital because he spiked a fever yesterday. They quickly got him on some antibiotics and we're hoping that it's just a simple head cold that caused it. Unfortunately he'll be missing Isaiah's birthday but it's better for him to be healthy in the long run. So that's a bummer and I'm still trying to get used to this whole process, but I'm just ready for it to be over.

Anyway, wish me luck. I'm going to need it! Thankfully Isaiah is spending the whole day with my in-laws, so I'll have a lot of time to myself.

So sorry to hear that John had to return. I was so praying that his latest drop would not mean another visit for him.

A happy birthday to the "big" boy. I love his new bike. Be sure to capture every moment for John to enjoy too.

Happy Birthday to Isaiah! He is so cute. I hope John gets better soon. I am glad you will be getting some "me time". I love mine when I get to grab it.

a Thomas cake? Not one of the big 3-dimensional ones? If so, my heart goes out to your patient confident self - I only ever had the guts for flat cakes with embossed designs!

I am praying for your family. I know it's got to be hard. It sounds like you have great support from your family, which is great for you.

I hope he enjoyed his birthday party!
