Isaac Sebastian, lets journey through your first year!

Let’s see if you’re with us by the end of the blog hehe… I may do a lot of waffling and babbling and there are DEFINITELY A LOT OF PHOTOS!!! *Ahem* 200 plus…. So if you continue, I wish you enjoyment in my ‘real talk’ and reflection and the absolute CUTENESS that this blog holds! <3

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

I believe in divine timing. I also believe in putting a lot of effort and work into the desired outcome. But I BELIEVE… in Divine timing 100%.

I’m not the same person I was 2 years ago. My end of 2014 blog popped up in my Facebook time feed today and I enjoyed marveling at our sensational 2014, which ended in the announcement of our first wee cherub, April. Although 2014 had it’s ups and downs, it was amazingly carefree. And then 2015 happened and that was a mix bag, but one I would never in my life regret living. In fact it could very well be one of the best years of my life by my own definition of ‘best’. That’s the year I gave birth to two babies. One in February, one in December. The two most special cherubs of my life. But you see, one lives with us in the world we know, and the other lives ‘around’ us in her Heaven.
Yes, I am in full belief that our angel girl April, is present always. Sometimes I can feel her warmth on my skin, where I know she’s just hanging off me as I read a story to Isaac. It’s the most surreal experience. My body tingles madly and warms up like the feeling of falling in love for the first time. Because as much as my heart wells at the grief of her loss. I wonder to myself, did we really lose her in the end? My ‘choice’ at this intersection, is ‘No’ we did not lose her. We didn’t have the opportunity to raise her and to truly know her. But we didn’t lose her essence and her spirit. She is watching her little brother grow and if it were not for her, we would not have the Isaac we know today. Our Christmas Day bub born 2 weeks early, but right on time. Divine Timing at it’s grandest.

2 years ago I didn’t know what joy looked like in the face of grief. April drew strength from me that I didn’t know I had. I realised, I can do anything, I can survive anything and not only that I can excel at ANYTHING I put my mind and heart to. Life is a precious gift, not to be wasted.
And although still an on going lesson, one for the rest of my life I’m sure… I’ve learned that all the little things that can stress, frustrate and upset us… is just a little sand in the scheme of life and the rocks are what’s important.  (See this story: Jar of Life)

It’s a blessing to be born and an honour to live each year! And no one year, no one person, no one life is ever the same way twice. I love evolving through every moment, every opportunity and every choice made – good and bad. Life is an on going Master Piece and our Isaac is showing us how wonderful life is, when you get back to basics.

So here we enter our Master Piece that is 2016…
The 1st Year of our precious Isaac Sebastian.

 

January 1st 2016, 1am, we closed our eyes cradling our perfect wee cherub just 1 week old. So little and delicate as he lay sleeping on my chest as I feel the gentle repetition of inhale, exhale.
He’s come to show us the true importance of life, and every minute of this year I’ve tried to be as present as possible. I’ve been watching his development, his growth, how he learns and I continue to marvel at how glorious “life” is. He’s brave, he speaks his mind in the moment when things aren’t quite right. He senses and shows love when it’s needed. He falls down *brushes himself down* so to speak and keeps on going. He’s taking life in his stride!
I watch him growing and I’m taking tips, because although he’s only been on this planet for 1 year, he knows things that I feel I forgot long ago when I entered the adult world and all it’s brain washing, ego spilling, “too busy”, fear wrangling ways. Isaac is reminding me that love has no end, and that “time” is a man made thing and that if you slow down for long enough to take a deep breath… one second, can feel like an eternity. So imagine how many eternity’s you can have in a 24 hour period. :) It’s all about how life is perceived and which platform and angle you wish to view and experience the ride from!

I like to wear my miss positive pants as much as I can, I like to take the real mundane things in life, or the perceived “boring or horrible” and try put a good spin on it. But doooon’t get me wrong…. when my little boy is screaming through the night for hours on end because his poor gums inflamed and he’s clearly in agony, I’m not looking to slow those seconds down. My breaths are not for soaking in the magic, but for soaking in endless love and patience through the sleep deprivation and the ringing in my ear. Through it all, the breaths for patience and the deep magical breaths soaking in every moment of gold…. I feel blessed that I get to be Isaac’s Mama.

S  U  M  M  A  R  Y

Things I’ve learned this year…

Ask for help, the worst answer you could get is ‘No’.

C O M M U N I C A T I O N    I S    K E Y … Through the likes of text messaging, facebook, being a deep thinker, or fear…. Communication can get a little lost or be stunted. Things can go internal. But fear not my friends, DON’T BE AFRAID TO COMMUNICATE! Don’t FORGET to Communicate. COMMUNICATION is Freedom! Go forth and see how it works for you.

Love has no label. Love is love and love is all there is. (Even fear is a form of distorted love. ~ Give that a wee think hehe)

Just Do It. Nike was onto something… I totally over think things at times…. And talk myself around in circles… but JUST DO IT. Seriously, what’s the worst that could happen?? …. You could succeed!

BE PRESENT. All life is, is each ‘Moment’ and the choices we make. (Plan for the future, and remember the past). The future however is not real and the past can not be changed. So, BE PRESENT and make good choices that are right for you, here in the NOW! Every new moment is a new opportunity to be the BEST You possible! Don’t fear your mistakes, find a new opportunity to be exactly who you mean to be all along! The right people will stick with you and love you more for YOU.

Gratitude is attitude. You can have it all! And it starts with being grateful for what you have NOW!

Thank you for choosing us to be your parents, Isaac. You make us so undeniably happy and bring so my love and joy to our lives… Let’s look at your 1st year on Planet Earth and how much you’ve changed in this one year. We love you!! xoxoxoxo

Happy Birthday Isaac
******** Special Thank You’s to our wonderful friends and amazing photographers ~ Kim of The Portrait Studio, Kimberley Cheyne Photography, Angela of Ladybug Photography and Kelly Shakespeare Photography, for their sensational shots to add to our boy’s timeline! We love them all!!! ********

Peace. Love. Harmony.
Where I feel I can fumble with these attributes in life sometimes… this is a time I felt true success, more than I could ever imagine! With Isaac’s beautiful water birth!
The room was peaceful, there was SO much Love present. And Harmony was a vibration that resonated deep.
I really do feel true love for the birthing experience. It’s a true gift, this experience was a true gift. But I motioned some things in order to get it. <3

Happy Birthday Isaac

And incredible support and words of encouragement always help with that!

Happy Birthday Isaac
The moment he came onto my chest. Which is actually a moment I can relive over and over and over again, thanks to a beautiful video capture by one of Isaac’s Godmother’s and our birth partner! Sheer relief, LOVE, peace and contentment filled these seconds in and around this amazing moment.

At 9.55pm on December 25th, we welcomed
Isaac Sebastian Richardson.

Born in divine right timing. <3

{If you missed it early last year, here’s Isaac’s Birth Story…}

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday Isaac

Our amazing midwife looked after us and our little bundle so well and commented on his ‘wise wee face’ as he stared up at her and into her heart.

Happy Birthday Isaac

The very first time he latched.
I do feel extremely privileged and blessed to be able to captured these types of moments, that may be forgotten down the road. I remember the feeling so vividly looking at this photograph. The tickle tingly sensation, before it actually got a little sore!

Happy Birthday Isaac

3 Days of relaxing in hospital getting to know his every feature! He was so little, but appeared so knowing.

Happy Birthday Isaac

I love all of his faces! He still looks like this, just a little bigger and deliciously chubbier! <3

Happy Birthday Isaac

He was just so wee…

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday Isaac
Safe in the arms of Dad.

Happy Birthday Isaac

A week old and in the studio with Kim creating photos that feel like the closet thing to purity. The feeling of peace is so evident in these beautiful captures! … <3

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday Isaac

At 2 weeks old and in the comforts of our home, we thank our good pal Kelly for capturing us in our most real state. She is sooo amazing at capturing the truth, love and rawness of life. #suchafan #lifeasnewparents

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday Isaac

Spoiled by talent. When he was just 3 weeks old in the cool summer air, we had a visit from bestie, Godmother and incredible photographer, Kim. Our Dunedin friend brings so much love, connection and a timeless feel to all her photos. These photos are so incredibly precious to us! :)

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday Isaac
We’re okay being real with you little guy, because it’s always going to be okay! How can it not be?!! ~ You’ve got the world on a string, sittin’ on a rainbow… This song makes me think of you baby boy! <3

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday Isaac

The scent of new baby is a precious smell that I always hope to remember. And that twirly crown … Bliss! <3

Happy Birthday Isaac

In the low light of the early night. Just a month or two old, he was sleeping beside us in his wee basket and this was about the last time he had a pacifier in his mouth. He just didn’t seem to need it! :) If you look closely, you can see his bright eyes, wide open looking at the light on the ceiling.

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday Isaac

Little iddy biddy tiny toesies!

Happy Birthday Isaac

When he could still fit his entire body on the thigh of my legs. 7 weeks old.

Happy Birthday Isaac

I was continuously asking Doug to take photos of Isaac and I. Photos that show what we look like at this time of life. Photos that convey how I feel with baby boy in hands, all to forever have in recreation, this era of our lives together.
Every kind of photo that paints and storytells how life looked, felt and just generally was! He was teeny tiny for ages… I soaked in all of his first year growth as much as I could and the photos will do the rest for years to come! #myphilosphyinanutshell

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday Isaac

Capturing his epic expressive brows was no real issue, but the smiles were too quick for my click. This was the first, even if it was a cheeky little dream smile.

Happy Birthday Isaac
We did a lot of this. What’s the easiest way to feel close to your little human?!! …
Snuggle up tight!!!! <3

Happy Birthday Isaac

Today we celebrated 1 year since the birth of our family angel, April.

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday Isaac
His eyes from Day uno, have been deep, soulful, thoughtful, patient, curious, delighted and totally cheeky too. His eyes have many facades. Depending on how he is feeling and what’s going on… depends on which little Isaac you have the honour of meeting! <3

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday Isaac

He’s got some beautiful young ladies in his life. This one loves to steal a kiss or two! hehe

He squints in the bright light of the early morning sun. Bathed and smelling fresh for another beautiful day.

Happy Birthday Isaac
About the time he found his hands. 4 months gorgeous!

Happy Birthday Isaac

And then he found his tongue.

Happy Birthday Isaac

And then it was all aboooout his tongue.
Funnily enough I haven’t seen much of his tongue since… he’s been far too busy learning other parts of his body and his abilities! :)

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday Isaac
Somewhere among the streets of Merivale, we saw perfect light, a gorgeous autumn wall and celebrated Isaac being alive for approximetly 4 months, 3 weeks, 5 days and several hours, minutes and seconds old! :)

Beautiful books that are good for sucking on and that help express how this Mummy heart feels about her wee man cub! <3

Real tears. Isn’t it wonderful to be able to feel?!! He’s okay though, nothing a Mummy hug couldn’t cure!

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday Isaac

These moments exist.
They’re spontaneous and tender and ever so heartwarming and real.
The flail of thy little hand, touching on the nose of thy mother as he studies every crevice of her face.

Happy Birthday Isaac

At 5 and half months old, we embarked our first plane for our beloved Tauranga! We had some little friends to meet for the first time!! <3

A day in the life of our winter 2016.

Happy Birthday Isaac

Different bath tub, different city, same cuteness. #Southislandroundtrip

Happy Birthday Isaac

We always wondered how our love for travel would be affected by having kids… Turns out we do it anyway and we handle it along the way! Isaac’s first decent trip was 3 South Island locations, 6 days, 6 different rooves to sleep under. #travelhasneverbeenbetter

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday Isaac

I feel a return to this place will occur, down the line when my family is complete. All members involved in a shot just like this. … I have photos like this in my head all the time to take… It’s just nice to have the idea. And if the opportunity arises, I either take it.. or create it. #excitingthoughts

Happy Birthday Isaac

Perfect page to land on, because these two are the BEST of buds! Watching their relationship blossom from day 1 has been a dream. And continues to be!

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday Isaac

Around 7.5 months old, we learned how to high five!

Happy Birthday Isaac
And washing baskets became the BEST. TOY. IN. THE. WORLD!

Happy Birthday Isaac

Interrupting the best meal in the wooorld, to have a family photo! #GreattimingMumandDaaaad

Happy Birthday Isaac

He’s such a light sleeper, rarely have I been successful at capturing him sleep. He always wakes at the sound of the auto focus. Maybe I need to manually focus, maybe I need a quieter shutter! :) #Illkeeptrying

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday Isaac

Wintertime movies in front of the fire. It was amazing!

I told him he’s taking a big trip across the globe, to Canada!

Happy Birthday Isaac

Naturally, it’s been a favourite book in this household. #Howtomakearainbow #fortheloveofrainbows . Going on 8 months! <3

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday Isaac

By 8 months, he was well and truly pulling himself up and walking around the furniture like a little speedster!

Happy Birthday Isaac

And the love of bath time continues…

Happy Birthday Isaac

At 8.5 Months, books were his life. We read alllll the time and he sat and listened and enjoyed. He’d go to the books, open them up and feel all the fun textures of so many amazing books I’ve bought and we’ve so kindly received! I am so of the opinion you can have enough toys, but never enough books! <3

Happy Birthday Isaac

I’ve been calling him a coffee shop kid for ages, only fitting he has his own little coffee cup! hehe #thanksAuntyBecca

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday Isaac

And then our talented friend Ange, captured a side of my boy that I adore so deeply. His sweet, charming and ecstatic smile that beams so bright with his first wee teeth!!!

Come Father’s Day, Isaac whispered to me “Let’s make Dad a special book all about me and him”. So we did.

Happy Birthday Isaac

Grandpa is adored, so warm and cuddly, he’s the perfect substitute for a bed! <3

My little old soul! <3

Good Morning little tyke! <3

Happy Birthday Isaac

9 month old visit to Plunket and doing awesome!

Happy Birthday Isaac

With the encouragement of a loving Dad and husband, these two below joined travel forces and flew solo to Canada. I learned how seriously social my little guy is, how patient, un-wavered and trusting he is. We saw a beautiful side of humanity with all whom offered us help at every corner of our trip. And we had a peaceful, content and AMAZING trip together. #onlyonemummymeltdown #andallbecauseIcouldntfindmyhotelkey #timeofourlives

Not long after we got home from our trip, Dad went on his own trip. As much as we wanted to go to both friends weddings on two different continents together as a family… We are truly grateful we went at all.

Dad leaves for South Africa. And Isaac and I continue our month of togetherness! <3

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSbPJSw1MRI&index=78&list=PLWUXmX2htJ7PCERGqF1iHKtGrauUkdICu

I was consistently photographing and sending his Daddy new photos as often as possible. He was at a stage were everything was kicking up a notch. He was crawling in full force and his strength and agility was peaking more and more every day! And strong came to his lips while Doug was away (although said long before this) was “Dad Dad Dad Dad”. We spoke about Dad alllll the time.

Happy Birthday Isaac

So much so that I walked in after nap time and witnessed him adoring his Dad’s face with one finger. The photos I put beside his bed were obviously keeping their relationship strong. But as sooooon as I left the room to get my camera… one moment passed… and another one arrived lol. #suchdramatictears

Happy Birthday Isaac

Other relationships continue to form. Life is but the relationships we are privileged to invest in and enjoy!

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday Isaac

Poppa has always been the swimmer in the family, every Grandchild has had a rich history of frequent swimming dates with him! I remember them warmly as a child myself!!

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday Isaac

He explores. He falls, he learns from the past… it’s uncomfortable for a bit, and then he moves on… This little pickle (hehe) came out of realizing he could lean on the side on washing basket while watching Zootopia (the love of his life). Whooopsie! With camera always at my finger tips… golden moments are remembered and the pickle was quickly diffused.

Happy Birthday Isaac

He cracks me up…

Happy Birthday Isaac

He cracks himself up lol

Happy Birthday Isaac

We should all be so lucky to be in love with our own reflection! :) hehe

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday Isaac

Little charmer and the peonie season…

Happy Birthday Isaac
And with dad being away, Mum got better as selfies! #gentlemomentsbetweenmumandson #hairgoalscomingtrue

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday Isaac

I was wondering how he was sleeping and not disturbing at all through my extreme lengths to get a decent photo… *photo taken wall side*

Happy Birthday Isaac
Turns out the deep un-disturbing sleep was resulting in a high tempreture of 39.9, which is a flipping high for a wee one. This Mama’s heart and thoughts of what to do to cool down that burning forehead, were running fast and steady! … 10 months old marked the first time he got sick and I feel blessed by that fortune!

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday Isaac

Just over 10 months old, he’s a little chatter box with plenty to say! … He’s just told me that Dad comes home today! Wohooooo!

Happy Birthday Isaac

If I’ve ever seen a bigger more adoring hug in my life from two people, it hasn’t meant nearly as much as this one did! … The force is strong with these two!! <3 #bestbuds

He inspires me to continue to find a new way and angle to photograph… He makes me comfortably uncomfortable in my shooting… I can always do better! I can always be better! Like he explores, he inspires me to explore! …

Happy Birthday Isaac

Some days are just so unfair… like being safely strapped to a car seat!

Happy Birthday Isaac

Feel free to caption this yourself! ;-) hehe

So, that’s what the hose does….

Sneezing is hilarious and fun in this household! It always follows with a cheeky smile and a giggle!

Happy Birthday Isaac

Our happy little elf was well into the spirit of Christmas! I know he’ll love his birthday as he grows, such a day of love and joy, peace and giving. We try to educate the positives to those Nancy downers who think having a birthday on Christmas is the worst thing in the world! And we are soooo thrilled when we meet people who see just how amazing it is!! <3 Yay Christmas!!!

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday Isaac

He had the job of manning the Christmas lights!

Happy Birthday Isaac

And then he peed on the deck. But he didn’t end there…. noooo, he didn’t lol.

Happy Birthday IsaacYou melt me baby, not so baby boy. You have a fire that shines bright!

Happy Birthday Isaac
Two moments so close together that describe his overall so perfectly.

Happy Birthday Isaac

His very first snow globe! <3

Happy Birthday Isaac

Happy Birthday our expressive little dude. Christmas was the exact opposite of the day you were born. Full of madness, family from around the globe and more chaos and love than you’ve ever experienced in your life. With cake on your lips and people lining up to cuddle you… Your first/second Christmas was the best birthday yet!

Happy Birthday Isaac

Dude, you missed a spot!!

Happy Birthday Isaac

A Merry Christmas from our family to yours! (Never too late to wish a Merry Christmas!! <3 )
