Happy 1st birthday Solomon!
One year ago today, our rainbow baby Solomon was born. One year and nine months ago, our sweet Lilly passed away. What a gift Solomon has been in bringing healing to our broken hearts. To filling our arms back up. To bringing more amazement back into our lives. I thank the Lord for him every day, as I do for our other children. Believe me, I do not take any child for granted.
I've purposely delayed giving Solomon grains of any kind, so when it came time to think "birthday cake" I wasn't sure what to do. Hunter pointed out that Solomon's favorite food is bananas so he suggested a banana cake. So that's what I made. I had no idea if he would eat it, but figured we needed a photo if nothing else!:
Solomon wasn't sure what to do with it:
But he found he enjoyed hitting the cake with his spoon and then throwing bits onto the floor:
Solomon thought eating wrapping paper was much more tasty:
Yesterday I made Solomon his birthday t-shirt. Of course it was huge on him today, but I know it will fit a bit better each birthday to come:
After supper, I gave Solomon a piece of "Lilly chocolate" to try. He decided that was a birthday treat much more to his liking:
(You can see Lilly eating her chocolate here. )
