We have had our new sweet boy for 4 weeks now. Here are a few pictures of his life so far. We have had some weight issues but thankfully with good guidance and God's help, we are back on the upward side of things. Kase started out at 7 lb 6 oz at birth and got down to 6 lb 9 oz because of being a lazy eater. He has started picking up and thankfully is up to 7lb 14oz now. I won't sugar coat things and say I have been just ok with this. I have truthfully been worried, scared, and have cried many a times. However, I have faith in God that he will watch over him and provide him with a healthy life.
He is really a great baby. He is calm and loves to look around. He is very alert, and watches our older boys very carefully. He turns his head when he hears their voice.
Our older boys have adjusted well to the new baby. My husband has been AMAZING through this new transition and has kept the older boys living just as normal as we can. He has had time off from work so he took the boys out on the boat one day to fish. They caught 3 nice bass. This is the life I wish for my family of boys. Being outdoors and living a simple life fishing.
They are both learning how to play basketball. Winter is coming, and boys do have A LOT of energy. We all agreed having something to do in the cold winter months of not being able to go outside, a sport would be nice. Learning to play on a team, and listening and obeying their coach is the goal. They are enjoying themselves. It is just one day a week.
I can't help but get sentimental when I think about my family. How wonderful I do have it. I know it has been God's blessing before me. He has helped me through times when I thought I would not have anymore children. He has changed the heart of my husband to agree another baby would be nice. He has brought this baby into the world safely. He has helped us all transition nicely. He has helped the baby through his trials. He has helped me see that I need him each day.
I can't wait to get back to going to church again. Of course we have been extra careful with a new little one and the germs that come along from public places. We try and keep baby on home bound so he can get his weight and age up before entering the world. But I am excited to be back in church each week too!
I am thankful for this blog to have as a journal place. To share about my family, so I will remember our life in each season. I never want to forget.
