I love celebrating birthdays, especially my childrens’ birthdays.
Birthday eves are a little bit emotional for me. The actual day is busy and exciting so I don’t have much time for thinking, but the day before I find myself looking at my child and thinking back to the day he was born and all the months and years in between. It is a time of reflection over the last year and of anticipation for the year to come. Ishaan’s birthday can be especially emotional- he was my first and it is no small miracle that we are both here to celebrate each year. He is kind, he is creative, he is generous beyond words, he is a good brother, a good friend, and a good son. He is a gift and I love watching him, talking to him, playing with him, listening to him. I am proud of the person he is and the person he is becoming.
Happy 9th Birthday Ishaan.
