Happy 3rd Birthday Kole Freedom

 
My 6th born, Kole Freedom is 3 years old today.  He is such a cute little boy.  We are going through some potty training challenges currently.  He won't go number two in the potty.  So this has been a bit of a hair pulling experience, but not my first.  I had a few other children that gave me a challenge in this area.  All I know is that he won't be in diapers for poopy or resist it all together forever.  He will grow out of this stage as well. 

Some tidbits of info about his "birth" day.  He was born on January 5 th, 2006 at around midnight.  He was 5 days late--my latest baby.  He was suppose to be due on New Year's Eve 2005, but I never come on my due date.  The labor I had with him was very inconsistent and I didn't even know if I was going to have him on this day,  until about 2 hours before birth time.  Contractions were all over the place:  up and down, round and round :)  At around 10:00 pm or so I felt my contractions change and we called the midwife.  She came around 10:30 pm and I was ONLY 3 cm and became very frustrated.  I went straight into the bathtub, closed the door, ran the water, and turned on the ceiling fans.  I didn't want anyone in the room with me because I NEEDED TO FOCUS on getting the baby OUT.  I basically went from 3 cm to birth in a little over an hour.  Yes, it was tough but I birthed a beautiful baby boy with big brown eyes, named Kole Freedom.  He was my biggest baby so far, weighing in at 8 lbs 12oz.  And what a handsome boy he was and is. 

My hubby is out of town today so we celebrated Kole's birthday yesterday at his Mema's house.  She made a cake and pizza and he got to open his gifts.  He was so excited to get his very own Diego video.  


We love you Kole, and Happy Birthday. 

Blessings, 
Chris

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
