Kelly gushes over her ‘perfect’ son, Isaiah.

In the caption of her post this weekend, Kelly admits that Isaiah is the “perfect” kid. In her other kids’ birthday posts, she hasn’t referred to them as “perfect.” So, is this a sign that Kelly’s favorite child is Isaiah?

She writes, “Happy late 17th Birthday, Isaiah! I’m a day late, partly because of wedding prep for Nate & Esther, and partly because I always wonder how to describe the ‘perfect’ kid! Seriously, it’s true!”

Then, she continues, sharing a bit about who he is. She writes, “I wish that every family could have an ‘Isaiah,’ & if I could’ve had another boy, I would’ve wanted him to be just like you: easy-going, polite, eager to do anything that’s ever asked (no matter how difficult or inconvenient), always encouraging, funny, spiritual minded, quiet, gentle, thoughtful, never angry, never unkind, loyal, hard working, wise with his words & attitude, patient, self-disciplined, admired, & very much loved by everyone!”

The Bringing Up Bates mom adds, “You’ve made me feel beautiful, loved, accepted, encouraged, & blessed from the time you were toddling around saying, ‘Mom, you’re so pretty!’ and showering me with hugs! You’ve never stopped being a HUGE bright spot in my life! I look at you with great respect & with much gratitude.”
