Reflections from a Mommy at Grady: For Isaiah

The first time ever I saw your face. . .
I felt the sun rose in your eyes

And the moon and the stars were the gifts you gave
To the dark and the empty skies, my love

To the dark and the empty skies
. . .

From Roberta Flack's "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face"


You were due on Cinco De Mayo, but instead arrived on Seis de Mayo. . . either way your arrival was met with as much celebration. It was a happy day. . . .

You told me tonight as I tucked you in on your 5th birthday, completely unsolicited:

"Thank you, Mommy. I feel so special."

This was my goal today.
This is my goal everyday.
Thank you for making me a better person. . .
. . .and for making me feel special, too.
I love you, Sunshine Boy.

  1. Great pictures!!! Kudos to the photographer! Haha! That was a great day at the beach. It was fun to be a part of Isaiah's first trip to the Pacific Ocean! It is a JOY to watch him grow!!!

    The party was great! You knew I wouldn't miss it! ;-)
