|Micah sees food coming and he is cautiously interested|
|the tray of cupcakes|
|Micah looks pretty certain he is not going to approve|
|he sniffs the cupcake|
|he taps the cupcake against his forehead a couple of times|
|he decides he has no use for the cupcake . . .|
|his look of disgust and horror . . .|
|Mom, get it off of me!|
|Can we be done here?|
|Micah surprised us all by actually showing interest in Isaac's gift|
|shoelaces! Isaac was so excited to give these to Micah! this boy loves strings!|
|Josiah is a little out of focus, but I love that sweet big brother face!|
|trying out his new chair|
|pondering the scooter board|
|definitely approving of the beanbag chair!|
|I love this shirt! I think Micah does, too!|
|the box makes a great toy, too! (Gideon is still at the table working on his cupcake, throughout this whole present-opening event, in case you were wondering about his absence, and Blessing is having her dinner via g-tube in her chair)|
|loving those shoelaces! great idea, Isaac!|
|sweet birthday boy!|
And as you know, God has worked mightily in this last year! Micah is no longer an orphan in a laying down room, waiting to die in a mental institution. He is my silly, giggly, stubborn, beloved son. He is an adorable, busy, exasperating little brother. He is our precious, amazing little miracle, and we are so, so blessed to be celebrating his very first birthday here, with him lighting up our lives and filling a place in our family that only he could fill.
Happy sixth birthday, my tiny little boy!
Mommy loves you so very, very much!
