One of Isaac's thrift-store birthday presents. Loves it.
It amazes me how Isaac went from being a helpless little baby , barely able to hold his head up.....
......to a full-functioning, remote-control-wielding (he actually knows that the remote affects the TV; if only he knew how to get the dumb thing to go to Seasame Street!) human-being in just a year's time!
First, there was no Isaac. Then......there was! A miracle. It was just a year ago that he came into the world with much
pain & joy. It was just a year ago that the doctors told me about his brain damage, that time would tell how he would develop & fear gripped my heart. But, time, so far, has shown him to be quite normal & healthy. Those neural pathways have woven their way around that troublesome little calcuim deposit in his brain. New pathways were made. His cute little synapses are just firing away! The brain is such a resiliant, complex & incomprehsible thing. Isaac has miraculously, amazingly, grown into a sweet, silly, lovable, naughty, & wonderful little boy. In other words....normal. I am blessed & stand in awe of the design & it's Designer.
Happy birthday, Isaac Joel! Mama loves you so very much.
