Ok, I'm finally posting Isaac's birthday pics. I was trying to hold out and let Maren completely take over the blog dealy here. I guess I'll let her just ease into it. We celebrated our little man's first 365 days by starting at "Big Boys" for breakfast. How convenient. Isaac managed to heap a lot of sweet pancakes and scrambled eggs into his yapper, but of course, much, much more on the floor. He couldn't believe the cake was all his but he came around and began to dig in. I think the girls became a little nervous just then (perhaps wondering where THEIR cake was) because Lainie covered her eyes and ducked under the table, and Brinley yelled "No, No Isaac!"
Maren had me grab some balloons for him earlier in the morning. When I brought them out the birthday boy raised both arms to the sky, dropped his mouth wide open and squealed in delight. What a fun kiddo. He is seen sitting on his first basketball and hoop, a huge doodle pad that he had to fight his sisters for, and a spinning, bouncing, music playing zebra from Grandma and Grandpa Beckstead. Thanks to all for the fun cards and gifts. Isaac will write you later. We have been so very lucky to have him this year, and we are forever so grateful for his fun, loving personality in our family. Happy Birthday little buddy!!
