|The birthday boy!|
We had a really nice afternoon celebrating with friends, The Goulds, at their house. My friend Renee made a cake (with 2.5 candles), and her oldest son picked out balloons and suggested they hang them up high so Isaac could see them. All of the kids played with balloons, which Isaac really enjoys. They had also gotten Isaac a birthday present, an awesome, circular, twirling xylophone type toy with a 'mallet' that is light enough for Isaac to hold and move around. He might have loved it even more than the chocolate frosting, which is saying quite a lot. Isaac loved going outside and watching the chickens peck around the yard, the dogs wrestle one another, and he got to hold a tiny 2 week old kitten! He had a great afternoon, and Natalie is spending the night with them (her first non grandparent sleep-over!).

Tomorrow is Isaac's quarterly check-up at the muscle clinic, which means we have another long day at the hospital. This Saturday is the annual Cure SMA Candle-lighting event. We light candles all over the world in memory of those who have died, and in honor of those still fighting like lions. Please, light a candle this Saturday at dusk, and say a prayer for Isaac. It will take only a moment!
