Let Him Eat Cake

This is a very special birthday for Noah. My firstborn son turns 6 years old today.

This will be the first birthday he will celebrate that he will actually remember being off his special diet.
For the past 2 years he hasn't been able to have a birthday cake or fun party food. The first year I made a really cool Play-Doh birthday cake so at least he'd have a candle to blow out. Last year we just served popsicles since he could have special "ice" treats. Three years ago at his Thomas birthday party, he had to wear a helmet to protect him from all the seizures.

But today we have many reasons to PARTY! He will eat birthday cake!

After all Noah has been through, I am just happy and content that he is turning 6 years old. What more could I ask for today?

I imagine that we'll stop keeping track of the sad days and birthdays he missed out as the new birthdays come & go. I see us never forgetting what we overcame, allowing it to shape us, but not letting it define Noah.

There is just so much that lies ahead to celebrate today. Happy Birthday, Noah!



Genesis 6:8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

  20. I found your blog just a couple of weeks ago. I have three little boys too, and my oldest just turned six the beginning of February. Your little boy is beautiful. We are working to overcome some medical stuff right now, and your story is inspirational. I'm so glad you found a solution that worked.
