One year ago we welcomed Isaiah into the world. Crazy. Francesca and I have been parents for a year. What a wonderful year! Isaiah is walking, climbing, talking (a little), inquisitive, sensitive, overall a joy. Franny and I have grown together as partners, parents, friends. Sometimes stressful, always wonderful.
One year ago we didn’t know when he’d arrive. I remember wanting to know what our child would be like. Whether we were having a boy or girl. Now we know – I couldn’t have imagined it this wonderful. Isaiah is Isaiah, I can’t imagine another child that he would have been. Franny and I are truly rediscovering the world through his eyes.
I’ll leave you with another Isaiah quote – I find it fitting for a first birthday, because Isaiah’s arrival has helped me to slow down in life, to enjoy the here and now and stress less about the future.
Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we shall die â€” Isaiah 22:13
