This angel of mine is six months today. I'm still finding my "mommy mojo" the happy place between organization and oasis, but loving and caring for you is turning me into a whole new and improved me! You're so busy rolling, talking and showing us your personality that everything is so better by your face and smile. Our family is so blessed to have you in our lives and I know you will do great things, even if my Harvard choice isn't your own, Mommy and Daddy will be there every step of the way!

Talk Soon!

Dear Braxton

Dear Braxton,
Life is so better because of you! Your father, grandmother, aunt and I headed to the hospital around 11pm on April 28th. I was so ready for you to arrive, I took teaspoons of castor oil and walked our neighborhood, determined to get you out, but after 24 hours of labor you decided you were ready in your true Taurus fashion. You spent ten days in the NICU and I never cried so much in my life, I prayed God would provide me with strength and ensure that you were of great health and he did! Your aunt and your fathers youngest sister gave you your Igbo name; Kamsiyochukwu, which means what I ask of God. I'm not sure how she decided or knew, but I can still remember the time I spoke to God and asked him for a child. I didn't ask for a time, I didn't ask for the gender, but only for him to bless with me being a mother one day. I'm honored and so thankful he gave me exactly what I needed.

Nothing that I did before will ever compare to the life that you've given me. You laugh and smile and we even think you can talk. Your Gigi has never been more happy in her life, I'm sure you've saved us all. I love your father more because of you. I'm learning and applying patience, because of you. I think before I react, because of you. I want to be closer to God and live and be a better person because of you and I will, my son all for and because of you.

Love Always!
Mommy!

Happy Sunday!
Just checking in on this Superbowl Sunday AKA My birthday! I've always put so much into birthday plans, that this year it came so fast, when you're preparing for a child, you're birthday is the last thing on the list. So let's see between the Zika virus being anywhere I'd love to go and not having wine or being around loud music, it was get dressed and have a spa day and end it with dinner. 
I have this skirt already and had to go purchase it again, as none of my bottoms fit, I've gained about 18lbs and I'm in my third trimester as of last week so I hope I don't gain another pound lol. I however will never complain as I still can't believe God has given me such a great title of becoming a mother this year!
Talk Soon!
