Getting ready to CELEBRATE! Guess who’s turning 1?!

Isaac Temesgen!

For each of my children’s first birthdays I make a slideshow of their first year! Granted, we’ve only have our little Isaac Temesgen for 4 weeks and counting–BUT you rest assured I have quite a few pictures to make a fun slideshow. I always TRY to take a few “official 1 year pictures” a few days before making the slideshow so they end our first year slideshow celebration. AND boy do WE have a reason to celebrate this year! This Saturday, our family will be celebrating God’s faithfulness and sustaining care…His hand being the great physician and His bringing our baby boy home JUST in time for this big day. I can’t help but remember his birthmom as we get ready to have family over to celebrate. How I wish she could be here with us. I can’t wait to put together a little photo album of this special day and send it her way. I thought it was fitting for some of Isaac Temesgen’s 1 year pictures to put him in a traditional Ethiopian outfit–so here’s a sneak peak of the pictures that will end his slideshow that we’ll play during his sweet little family party on Saturday…(be sure to turn the music off up top before watching…)

happy birthday sweet boy. It was so great to see you this weekend. I wanted to scoop up your babe and squeeze him…but respecting the cocooning stage, I just gave you a hug instead. I pray for you often.

Love you friend.
