It’s hard to believe that this little man has been in our lives for over 2 weeks now! We celebrated Isaiah’s 2 week birthday on Chris’ first Father’s Day on Sunday! We have been through the toughest part of our adoption journey and it has absolutely brought us closer together as a couple and really affirmed our faith in God. We had such a special and unique experience from his birth and then watching his birth parents sign their rights over and entrust him to us. We are so incredibly grateful that they chose us to be Isaiah’s family. Every morning I sleepily look at him and think to myself “I can’t believe he’s mine!” I am so blessed to be his mother. It has been the most emotionally grueling few weeks of my life and God has been gracious in getting us through it. The adoption won’t be finalized for another month or so but he is ours and we couldn’t be happier. It feels like he’s been apart of our lives forever. I wouldn’t know life without him.
At 2 weeks he’s gained almost a pound and is past his birth weight at 7.5 lbs! He also grew half an inch and really eats like a champ. As of last night he slept 6 hours straight! That’s the longest he’s ever slept, and it was glorious. He’s extremely laid back and easy going. He hardly ever fusses and when he cries it’s when he’s really ticked off or hungry and it lasts maybe a minute. He has more alert times during the day where he loves to look at the living room curtains and turns to find me when I talk to him. We’re tired but happy. He’s a joy and I’m loving my new job as Mom.
