Happy Birthday, Idan!

post pic 07202014Well, it’s official.  Idan will wake up on Sunday morning a 2 year-old.

With everything we’ve been through lately, anniversaries and milestones are reminders to stop for a moment, take a deep breath, and reflect.  Mostly, we feel extraordinarily thankful.  Regardless of the time we’ve “lost,” we’ve gained so much along the way.

Idan is truly a spectacular person who is at once bashful and yet can entertain a room of people.  He is strong-willed, and focuses intently even while playing.  And yet, on a dime, his concentration can be broken into a bout of silliness, songs and dance.post pic 07202014 3

It is therefore somewhat surprising that he is only now turning two.  And it is even more surprising how someone who has been in your life for such a short time can completely take it over, give it new meaning, shape and redefine you so that you are a better person for it.   Not even two years old, and he has already changed the course of our lives.

 Idan, my hero, here is my birthday wish for you:  May you continue to always bring sunshine into a room.  May the sun always shine on you, and may you live another 120 (or more!) years with the best of health, happiness, and goodness.
