June 13, 2004

...was the day my son was born and our lives changed forever.

It had been a long, hard road ~ a pregnancy filled with jubilation and heartache. The end result was a baby so precious, I was devastated when he couldn't come home with us right away. But even as he lay in the NICU, his place in our family was firmly rooted in our hearts. And even though the last 5 years have been challenging, they have also been unbelievably rewarding. We can't remember life before Isaiah and we can't imagine life without him.

I love you, Isaiah James. Happy 5th Birthday, my beautiful boy.

Happy birthday!! I love the slideshow. Was he laughing or crying with the haircut? And, did you notice, the older he gets, the more his head looks likes his Dad's from behind? Too cute!

Thank you all so much!

We turned his birthDAY into a birthWEEK, so we'll be celebrating for a few more days, lol!

And the head thing is so true, JennyB ~ especially when they are both sporting fresh haircuts!
