Potty Training Accomplishment

Just a quick update on Kole Freedom, my 3 yr old who had the "poopy in the potty" issues.  Well, we have reached VICTORY!!!

Shortly after his third birthday we conquered the big feat.  My very patient and consistent husband took our little boy into the bathroom and sat with him for over an hour so he could do his business.  I, personally, had to battle the temptation to not interrupt the process.  I wanted to run into the bathroom when I would hear Kole screaming and crying because he didn't want to go.  I wanted to stop my husband and say "let's just give him the diaper!" or "he'll figure it out one day soon."  Nope!!  I had to resist this temptation and pray, pray, pray for me and for Kole.  My husband just sat with him and read him books.  Finally, there was victory and he went!!  Yay!!  Now, it wasn't defeated that first night.  My patient husband had to repeat this for the next few nights.  It became less and less of a struggle each night.  Then finally the victory came.

Now, he loves going poopy in the toilet!!  He insist that he has to go EVERY time he has to use the potty.  I had to explain to him that we don't have to go every time.  He realized this after he kept straining and nothing was coming out.  :)  

Kole's attitude has gotten much better.  He is happier and is eating so much better.  You see, he was holding it as long as he could.  This was making him a miserable little guy.  Life with my boy these past few weeks has been a pleasure. 

(Sorry for the blurry picture.  This was the best I could get of him before he jumped off the toilet)

( 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
