the difference a year makes.

a year isn't a long time. but for some reason it feels like it should be and then before you know it, the year is up.

tomorrow is isaac henry's birthday. don't worry, i'm not sad. cause this kid is like a fine wine, he just gets better with age. and as much as i love squishy newborn isaac, i think i love rambunctious toddler isaac more.

i just cannot tell you how awesome this year has been.

who knew that out of all the babies we were gonna get the best and coolest and friendliest baby in the history of the world?!

and i feel like i have purpose. not that i didn't before, but i was made to be a momma. i was made to be isaac henry's momma. and i'm getting to do that. and it's dang fun. 

PS. this is one of his 1 year pictures taken by the amazing Sarah Combs. I CANNOT WAIT TO SHOW YOU MORE. she rocks, they rock.

thinking back on this day last year, i was so ready to have this baby in my arms. and we had decided that we were definitely going for an induction the next day. and i'm so glad it happened when it did cause i don't think i could have waited one more second. 

except for we had no clue how to do babies. and we laughed the other night as we remembered. we were remembering how in shock we were that we had a son and they were just gonna let us take him home. and we had never taken care of a baby before. my motto for that time in life was that stupid people have babies all the time. and i'm not stupid, so we'll be fine.

and we are. we made it through nursing. and naps in our arms. and crawling. and learning to walk. and up all nights. and sleeping through the night. and eating baby food. and eating grownup food. and lots of poop. and figuring out a schedule. and learning how to be parents with other parents, parenting at the same time as you. and going from 0% on the growth chart to chubbers. 

and my heart is just so full.

what a gift! how cool that we get to play a part in God's creation.and we get to understand a little better the great love that God has for us, His children.

and tomorrow, we'll celebrate. this whole year of isaac henry's life that just flew by. we'll play. we'll sing, and he'll dance. and we'll all eat ice cream, cause that's much better than cake. and saturday we'll have a party!

stay tuned for his final monthly update [ptl that those pictures are going to be over. it's time.].
