Now We Are Four,....

Turning 4 years old in 2014,...how clever of Isaac to be born in 2010 so every year will end with his current age,...but what else can you expect from such an intrepid little guy?



The build up to Isaac's birthday about had me in tears,..."Isaac it is nearly your birthday!" - "Isaac, who is going to be 4 years old? - YOU!" - "Almost, Happy Birthday Isaac!" --- just samples, but I kept it up,...along with signing: Happy Birthday,...and singing, "Happy Birthday to you!" 

Isaac's reaction was basically a non-reaction, he was too busy giggling over Veggie Tales, or assuring me that the foam letter U, was a U,...or taking super-sonic zooms up and down our hallways,...or in other words, Isaac was too busy living in the moment to be worried with upcoming birthdays,...it sounded 'nice',...but he had a life to live...

Cue, Birthday party day,...and I should have known that Isaac would get 'into' that moment with gusto! Each present he unwrapped was the most wonderful thing he ever saw,...why open more presents when he had this 'wondrous' present to play with? So it took a while, but eventually Isaac opened his gifts,...and then it was time for BIRTHDAY CAKE!!!!


Or rather,...birthday cake redecorating!!!!


2014,...is also the year Isaac discovered what those birthday candles were for!!!!


Unprompted,...he knew how to blow a candle out,.....


Then,...per his request,...we lit another,....


And another,....


Each candle on that birthday cake,...got a turn,...


Not one was forgotten or left out,...


GRAND FINALE,......with birthday crown on our birthday boy,....


King Isaac blew out his candles and then watched instant replays,....




As always,...Isaac's redecorated cake looks more appealing!!!



And now we are four years old!


Never would I have thought melted candles on a birthday could make me so happy,...or rather make a four year old sooooo happy,...but even though, in many ways, Isaac's birthday was not exactly typical,...it was totally typical for Isaac,...he experiences the world in a different way,...and makes sure you do too,...such a gift,...and such a blessing,...and such a lesson to enjoy each moment as they come,...as I am sure Isaac will in the coming year

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ISAAC,....WE LOVE YOU!!!!


Until I post again,...may God bless and keep you!
