3 Weeks Today.

k4 fun!

Being a K4 teacher gives me the chance to remember how fun,sweet and innocent childhood can be.

I have days where I need my hot cup of tea and to kick off my high heels and just cuddle with my baby brother when I get home. But even on the most tiresome days, I can't help but think how rewarding my job really is. I realize how blessed I am to be able to work with these precious jewels.

So yesterday I started thinking that it would be fun if I shared some of the adorable things my students tell me in one day.

“It's story time and Amber Lamb is scared to go to school. Were you scared when you started school Tuesday? Child: “A little. I was very happy to see our classroom wasn't like Little House in the Prairie

“First day of school”
Child: “How long is school? Because my mommy is going to miss me a lot!”

“Alright, it's time to go to the restroom.” Child: “Miss P? Do you just like going to the bath room?”

“These little cards are warnings. Let's try not to have one on our desk! (Later on speaking to a student) “Do you need another warning?” Child: “Yes, I would like that very much!”

Bible time! “How did God write the Bible?”

Child: “With a pen and a crayon.”
Another Child: With a feather and ink.

“Miss P can I tell you something? On Tuesday my mommy cried a little when I went to school. She misses me."

“Miss P “We are going to have fun. Me, you and ______ (another student) can swing on the swings at recess!”

It's been a while....

I am sorry I haven't been blogging. I know you may have been trying to get a hold of me others may just be waiting for an updated picture of Jeremy. But I have been lacking in the blogging world again.

I think of all my special readers all the time even when I am not online looking at all your blogs and leaving little comments here and there.

Right now there is a lot going on in my little life. Between, school coming up this week, and the newest addition to the family and other things that have been grabbing onto my heart strings and just not letting go blogging has just not been the top thing on my list!

However, I will try to update soon! I need to get to bed I am up late! Since tomorrow is Sunday and I need to get up early for church! You all have a great day tomorrow!

So busy!

One week! Just one week and I have my teachers meeting. I am using up my time holding my baby brother Jeremy and coloring gum ball machines for my bulletin board. I felt bad I didn't post anything yesterday. I was going to but like I said I am straight out busy!

There is so much to do and so little time. I am going to ask everyone to pray for my blogger Friend Jessica the last I heard she was in the hospital in labor! So, please pray for and her husband and her sweet baby girl on the way!

I am now off to color some more!!

Just Priceless...

Jeremy is now three days old. He is so sweet. We all love him so much! It's so fun to have a newborn in the house. To rock him and hold him. To dress him in all the outfits we have been cooing over for months.

To just know he is here is such sweet bliss!!

Jeremy two days old.

This afternoon Carole put her photographer skills to good use and captured some adorable poses of our sweet little brother! She has been dreaming about doing this for months. So she could hardly wait for mom to finish feeding him so she could "play" with our baby brother.

He also had his first Doctors visit today. He is doing just great! It's so different having a baby in the house and knowing he is not one of my nephews who will be going to go home sometime. But it's my baby brother who is staying!

I always miss my nephews and niece when they go home. At times in the beginning of the summer I missed school and my students. Later on in the Summer I enjoyed every bit of my vacation and didn't miss school as much but I am pretty excited about starting a new school year in just a couple of weeks. But, I got off my subject didn't I?

Well, all that to say I am just happy to know Jeremy is ours to keep!

I'll try.... explain what I felt the moment I saw my baby brother come into this world. Yes,my friends I saw it. I honestly didn't think I could possibly do it. But after A LOT of thinking I made my decision and I watched my mom be in so much pain and then the little miracle that I am proud to announce is my baby brother enter the world.

It's so neat having Christ live in us isn't? I often let fear come into my being and let it's evil head make me worry and fret. But I am afraid that is not all fear does to me. I get sick to my stomach. Very, sick where a trash can needs to be handy.

Ya, I know you all needed that information!!

Well, anyhow so this past week I was getting myself all worked up because I just knew I would be in the nearest bathroom for the most part.

Apparently I didn't know because I was okay! I was distracted often seeing sweet comments on my blog and facebook. I had a regular crowd following my facebook page for a couple of days. I was surrounded by family and even my mom was okay for most of the labor she even helped me with an important email I had to send out while she was laying on the hospital bed!

And then at 5:27 in the morning my baby brother came into this world. Weighing 8 pounds and 7 ounces.

We are all home now even my mom and Jeremy. I love just watching him sleep and hearing his little cry!! What a joy to be able to say he is my brother!!

Still waiting.....

Sipping some more coffee...

Well, I stained my "big sister" tee shirt with my coffee this morning. I am pretty distressed about that but I guess my baby brother won't mind! I am tired but I was able to fall asleep last night for a while in the waiting room.

My mom's contractions are getting stronger. And I just can't believe it's getting closer. I am not sure when the baby will come it may not be for many hours but I just know this excitment that I am feeling is priceless!

Thank you all for praying and checking in your comments mean the world to me and I enjoy reading them while I sit in my mom's hospital room.

I will keep you updated and keep those prayers coming!!

Well, we are at the hospital

We have been at the hospital since six this evening. Mom is doing well. Right now she is just lying down while I am on the computer, Carole is touching up her make up, Mimi is just sitting and Aaron and Dad are watching the baseball game.

Aaron and I went to the waiting room for a little while where I played with an adorable little girl! Mom haven't even been induced yet so it is going to be a LONG while before I have any baby pictures for you!

But just hang in there and keep watching my blog for updates!!


I am so sorry I haven't updated all day! However, I have a VERY good reason why I didn't. Because we are not even at the hospital yet! We were suppose to call the hospital at 6:30 in the morning to make sure the hospital was ready for us. When my dad called they told him they were putting my mom on a waiting list and to call back at eleven.

We were already to Head out the door so we all put are things down and said goodnight and went back to bed. A few hours later dad called again they told him if the head nurse did not call back by two call them.

So two rolled around and he called. They said something is going on at the hospital and it was in the interest for my mom's safety to not admit her yet. They said they will call at four it's now four nineteen and my Internet connection has not been disturbed.

So, at this point it may not be until tomorrow before mom gets admitted. I just read your comments and I thank you all for caring if you haven't guess the baby's weight yet scroll down to that post and do it. You still have PLENTY of time.

Still keep us in your prayers! And I will update you when I can!

Wow, and here we go....

Tomorrow is the BIG day. This post will not be long tonight because I don't think I have the energy to scrape up enough juicy words and exciting things to write about. My mind is full and if I could only write everything down in this post I would. But, as I type I just can't form the words or can't explain how excited and nervous I am right now.

So, my bloggy friends I am going to ask you all to keep my mom, my baby brother and my whole family in your prayers tomorrow. I will try to keep you all updated through out the day! I appreciate all your thoughts, prayers and care for our family!

Love you all,

Something fun!

Carole actually came up with this idea and I happened to really like it! Since all of you were so gracious enough to join me and my families excitement over this new addition to our family for months now. You have dealt with many posts, on names, nursery,mural the list is endless. I think it would be fun if you guess the weight of my new baby brother who will be born in a just a couple of days!

Lets see if anyone will get it right!!

3 days!

Yes, you read that right three days! Three little days until my mom is induced! My Mimi,myself and my parents were able to go into the maternity section in the hospital today. We were able to look at the waiting room and just get a feel of what Thursday and possibly Friday will be like!

I am so excited I try not to worry. But I know it's human nature. However, I also know that worrying is sin. And I need to stop! People, may roll there eyes over that. But the truth be told if you are a born again Christian you know the Lord will and has you in His hands and nobody can pluck us out of them. So, yes I believe we shouldn't worry.

That doesn't mean however that I don't because I do a lot! But I am trying to hand all those fears and worries to the one who can DEAL with them and yes I am referring to my Lord and Savior.

Carole helped my mom pack her bag tonight and she also packed the baby's bag a few weeks ago. Aaron brought up the brand new car seat and mom is painting a dresser we bought at the thrift store for the nursery. We are all in excitement mode! And of course it helps that my Mimi is with us.

It is so fun to have her here with us at this special time!

So, I had said a few weeks ago I would update more often so I just wanted to check in! I thank you who's praying for our family. We appreciate it greatly! I can't wait for the moment when I can post on my blog that my baby brother is here!

I'll blog soon!

Charging up that mp3

I am sitting in my big brothers living room on the laptop while the computer slowly loads the battery juice back into my mp3 for the long ride home! Yes, we headed back down to my grandmothers this weekend. BECAUSE we needed to pick up Mimi (My grandmother) so she would be up when the baby comes! Yes, it is feeling very real now! By this time next week Lord willing I will be holding my baby brother!

I am so excited! I am sorry I am not filled with fun stories right now. Or even a cute picture of something! Right now the only thing roaming in my mind is this sweet baby brother of mine and of course my Mommy!!

I have to get off now and get ready to go home! Maybe I will take a long nap in the car! Please keep us in prayer while we travel home and please keep on praying for my mommy and baby brother!!!

5 more days!
