Happy First Birthday, Isaac

At exactly this moment a year ago, Isaac was less than three hours old. I was staring at this new little person and wondering aloud, with Blake, what we had just done. I was also very tired, and sore.

Today, I couldn't be more in love with this little guy. He is the light of my life and brings complete joy to my days. His little smile melts my heart over and over again. He's the perfect medicine to any bad day. Any loss of sleep or physical pain I may have been feeling are a long distant memory. Our little guy was worth all of it.

This month, Isaac has:
1. Become very proficient at walking {he can change direction, no problem}
2. Says: mama, dada, uh oh
3. Mocks sounds for things like : cows, four-wheeler, mmmm
4. Started bringing me diapers when he's wet or poopy {he just goes and gets them on his own!}
5. Imitates us fairly well
6. Understands a lot {especially in Chinese}
7. Learned to stand himself up on his own {without the help of mommy, daddy, or some other object}
8. Discovered endless ways to get into trouble
9. Started attempting to use silverware at the dinner table

Happy first birthday to my sweet little boy!
