My little sonshine

10 days after Rocco's 2nd birthday, Noahkeem was born. He is my miracle baby.
Noah stopped growing in utero and I was induced this day 4 years ago-although he was full term. He was born 5 lbs, 11 oz. Because the birthday boy awaits, I'll have to quickly share my full testimony of my miraculous pain-free labor and delivery without an epidural . I first give credit to God, of course and the resource "Supernatural Childbirth" by Jackie Mize.
The jist is that you pray and prophesy over every single muscle and body part involved in childbirth and apply the scriptures over those parts of your body-everyday. I gave it a try even though some thought it was hokie and I can say I felt zero contractions during labor-to the point where the nurses kept showing me the monitor and pointing out my contractions that I was not feeling. This of course occurred with no drug intervention. I was exhausted and given a mild sedative to sleep and I woke up a little after 8 and felt the need to push. My lovely doctor wasn't there and I was advised not to push. When I finally did push I felt no pain, just pressure like something was coming out of me and at 8:33pm, Noahkeem was born.

He is such a wonderful son. He is also my most vocal boy. In one form or another, he will let me know how he is feeling. He is always giving me a hug or asking me, "Can I give you a hug?" then I can bet within the same course of the day, after that hug, he will tell me how mean I am.

Noahkeem has never failed to make me laugh or smile. Once he caught on what April fools jokes were, he has been on a mission to try to trick me, everyday. Stuff like, "Mom, there's a bug in your hair" or "Mom I spilled my drink" and then he follows it up with saying, "April Fools Joke!"

The highlight of these last four years besides his birth was, one day last year. I was sitting on his bed in the evening time, and I looked at him and said, "Noahkeem, you're a good boy." He turned around and looked at me with sincerity and said, "Mommy you're a good boy too!" and then he hugged me.
