Introducing my little miracle baby





My little cherub, Isaac David, was born on March 19 at 10:29 pm and weighed 5 pounds, 9 ounces, and was 18.75 inches long, and we are completely smitten with this little angel!  I'll share his story in the future on my blog, but for now, I want to post these remarkable photos that we had taken of our newborn when he was ten days old, plus a few from the hospital.







This was right after the nurses cleaned him following the Cesarian section delivery, my first time to hold my baby boy.  I was relieved to finally meet him, especially after a rough day, when we were told that he hadn't grown in two weeks when I went in to have an ultrasound, and was ordered to go to the hospital to have him within 24 hours since he was a likely candidate to be a stillborn if we had waited the eleven days until his induction date was scheduled.


We love our darling new son and thank God for his safe arrival into our home. Here we are just before leaving the hospital after being there from Monday until Friday, in our first family photo with the three of us.  Isaac is now three weeks old and weighs 6 pounds, 8 ounces, almost a full pound more than when he was born.

So glad he is here, safe and sound. I love his cute little smile in some of those pictures. He is indeed a miracle.
I still have to pinch myself to think that you got to give birth! You are so lucky!

Congratulations. I have an Isaac and he is graduating from high school in a week...he has been a joy to raise. You probably know the name means "to laugh"...and he has always found a reason to.

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Isaac's creation

One year ago today, this little angel came into our world, sent directly from heaven, without a doubt.  Isaac is our fourth child, but the first that I gave birth to.  He was the result of a successful fertility treatment called In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), our first and only attempt.  The fact that I was 48 years old when I got pregnant, is a miracle in and of itself.  I had long since given up the idea of ever being able to experience pregnancy and childbirth after having been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, until a rare contact from a dear friend had renewed my desire.  This is the story of how Isaac came to be, and the loving environment that welcomed him.  Take note of the numerous small miracles along the way, leading up to our pursuing this dream.

There was a three-week window of opportunity when our family had come to our Austin home for the holidays, while we were living in Taiwan for one year.  My long, lost friend sent us a beautiful Christmas card, perhaps the fi…

Class of 2030 first day of school

First day of kindergarten was a huge hit!
The only thing that went wrong, other than arriving to school a few hours late due to our flight from Denver and no sleep the night before from seeing the 2017 American solar eclipse in Casper, Wyoming, was losing two small, black buttons from his brand new blue and gray plaid Hurley shirt.
My little boy started kindergarten and I'm so excited for the freedom it will give me while he's away at school, but especially I'm glad for the fun times he will have in learning and being with new friends.  He was so ready and excited!  I didn't know any of the kindergarten teachers at the school, but after meeting Mrs. C, I'm so glad we got her!  Her body language and introduction to Isaac were so sweet and made him feel safe, loved and welcome.
I ordered this fun and festive balloon from ATXBubbles and they delivered it to our front door.  Isaac loved his after school surprise.
He picked out this backpack because the inside says &quo…
