Toddlers

Galen. He is my 2 yr old. He is the sweetest little guy I know. He is the first to greet me when I get home from having been out running errands. He yells "mommy" really loud, runs up and hugs his arms around my legs. He is a tiny little guy with a big heart. He is laid back, but if those buttons get pushed (usually by older siblings) look out.

Toddler years can be difficult. The world calls them the terrible twos. But I believe they can be a blessing. I guess it depends on how you look at the two year old stage. These little ones are confused a bit, especially when they are not the babies anymore. They wonder what is going on in this big world. They can't seem to communicate clearly enough to get what they want, so0000...............what do they do----- Scream, yell, throw those tantrums.

Disciplining is a big tool for training. Consistency is the key. Eventually, they will get it. Our roles as parents is to have patience, don't lose our cool, speak with a calm soothing voice, and try to understand these little guys. Don't forget this is such a short season and it will be behind us before you know it. Lean on the strength of the LORD and He will show you glimpses of who this little person is. God, Himself, created Him for a purpose and we as parents need to find out this token. In hopes of it helping with our child training years. So remember, if you seek....... you will find.
Blessings

She is Here!! Welcome Ana Karisa!!

Just a quick update to let you know we had the baby!!  Yay!!!! :D Here name:  Ana Karisa (pronounced  A-nah  Ka-ree-sah  ) Born: January 30 at 9:15 PM Weight:  7'2 oz  19 inches  Beautiful little girl.   Here are some pictures and when I start feeling normal and not so much like a milk cow, then I will post the details of what took place on Delivery day. ( Ana about 5 minutes old) (Here she after her check up--about 30 minutes old)   (Coming home!!  1 1/2 days old) We came home yesterday late afternoon, and I am lacking much sleep.  I really haven't slept since last Saturday.   She is nursing a lot right now to bring down my milk.  I've been nursing around the clock.  Almost every hour.  I am doing this because she has been hungry and I need my milk to come in as soon as possible.  I am showing signs today of it coming in.  She is not so fussy and more content.   It is so easy to forget about those newborn days.  It doesn't matter how many babies you have h

A day away....

Life had become so overwhelming for me when Donnie was away with the older two  children.  It seemed we hardly ever had time to really talk about life anymore I started to feel disconnected with him I really don't like this feeling I am not a surface type of person and when "problems" in life begin to brew..... look out!!   I will do what it takes to make things better.... Even if we have to make an emergency get-a-way... I wanted just one day... one whole day alone with him. Sooooo.... Donnie asked his sweet mom to watch the children for us while we took a little drive on over to the beach... ahhhhhh I think the beach has become one of my favorite places to be.... There is something that takes place deep in my heart when I come face to face with the massive ocean and the waves.... The breeze blows and there I find some comfort and peace... We had such a great time reflecting and revamping some of our vision, plans, and goals for  the

Meet Sweet Kara Faith

My sweet friend Nancy from Mom Just Like You , delivered sweet Kara Faith on January 8, 2010 at around 6:45 AM. Nancy's husband Stu calls me around 5:30 AM to let me know Nancy's contractions never let up and she was going to be delivering their long awaited miracle baby Kara. It has been an emotional battle these past 4 to 5 months for Nancy and Stu. Kara was diagnosed with Alobar HPE on the same day they found out they were having a baby girl, their 8th child, third daughter. Their heart was broken not knowing what the future held for them. Nancy leaned on the only source she had in her life: The Lord. I have been friends with Nancy for 5 plus years now (we met on MOMYS). When I found out Nancy was going to have a special baby, immediately my mommy heart was aching for my sweet friend. I went into deep prayer and intercession for them. I was grieving along with them, but deep down in my heart I knew God was and is Faithful. As I prayed one evening at worship nigh
