January 2015 - March 2015
As we left 2014 behind us , we entered in to 2015 with a bright future ahead of us, as we were expanding our family and being blessed to have our little girl on March 25th .. But it wasn't without hiccups we were rushing around trying to get her room filled with pink to make sure that we were prepared for bring our little girl to this crazy world. As we went to ultrasound after ultrasound we watched baby Isabelle grow to 8 lbs.. mommy's tummy grew and grew (the biggest baby belly in all my pregnancies) Our boys were absolutely excited that they were finally getting the little girl they were asking for.
January passed..then February passed (i had turned 26) . February had to be the most exhausting month for me.. as we saw a tonn of appointments for my borderline gestational diabetes.. and i was in incredible pian from izzy laying breech in my stomach since i was 5 months (20 weeks pregnant).
Through love, support, and adversity our relationship got stronger as we knew it was going to be a rough ride until the day izzy was in this world.. but all of it was worth it . when she came screaming in the world and her daddy was the first to hold her.. as mommy was getting sewn back up from the emergency c section. I was due with izzy April 7th , but she came march 25th 2015.. @ 8:05PM weighing 8lbs 21 inches long. Our family was elated to have the first girl grandchild , first girl neice, in to our family.
April 2015 - July 2015
Update On Nathan:
Since my previous update on Nathan a few months ago not much has changed, besides the fact that he is now stronger, taller, and outweighs most of the children in his age range (4-5yrs) , He has more violent outbursts, which have spun in to smashing his head against his siblings or mommy, He is intimating to women but challenges men. Nathan has good days and bad days.. their is no happy for a week and terrible for another week , it is very up and down like a roller coaster. We try very hard to make sure that we give him as much attention as all our children. His mental state is very hard at this time.. we are working with social workers as well as other in home supports to begin to understand our oldest boy and to give him the best of everything in terms of our parenting. We have asked for this help( so no our in home supports was not brought in by police or anyone calling say we are bad parents). We see a need that we need to act on before things get worse.. his genetics and environment all play a key role in how we are able to help him. In the first few months in to 2016 , i will write another blog .. updating again on how all our children is. as well as birthday planning and posts in march (izzys 1st birthday), in May (nathans 5th birthday), and June (tanners 3rd birthday) keep posted
Update On Tanner:
Tanner has been doing well. he is working on potty training (which is slow going but its going well), he is learning his ABC's as we have implemented that we are collecting a shelf of books in their room , so that they can read whenever they would like to, as well as read before bed. My mother read to me every night no matter how tired she was from work, she always put me and my sister first in making sure that our education and read and math levels were up, and their would be no reason for us to fall behind and not pass our classes. My mother loves books so this made it easier for her to enjoy reading with us at night. We loved it!!!! Huge Piece of my life was enjoying those stories within the bonding time with my mom. Tanner is loving barney and is obsessed with the minions, when you see a minion in the store he gets super excited., maybe his birthday might be minions.. (creating their birthday parties are a huge favorite of mine). Tanner loves to dance.The only behavior issues we are dealing with him at this time is, he is picking up the things that Nathan is doing and the struggles Nathan is having, and he sees those traits as a way that he can try and get his way to like acting in those bad behavioral manurisims.. we are slowly getting tanner out of those problems but its a work in progress.
Update on Isabelle:
isabelle is exceeding exspectations of her age group (under a year old ), She loves to sleep in , she doesnt like early mornings, she loves bright colors, she is picky with her food and loves more sweets than salty foods. Isabelle is a very happy , gentle , smiling baby. She has learning to stand in her crib, which is irresitable when you get her in the morning and you are greeted with a smile to awaken you.. its the best feeling seeing her so happy and healthy. She is almost 20lbs , and still very long, she has just started crawling a few days to a week ago.. she doesnt crawl very fast, she likes to do it slowly, she is very dainty which is great. Isabelle got all of her shots like a champ.. she cried on a little bit then a little after than she was over it and passed out and slept for a few hours.. her arms and legs were sore the next few days, she goes back when she is a year to get more shots.
We have nicknamed isabelle .. izzy bear, she loves it!!!! She giggles when you say her nickname.. its very adorable. She likes to play with anything doesnt matter if its a boy or a girl toy, she likes to chew everything as she has 2 teeth in the bottom, the right eye tooth has come in, but the left eye tooth is now starting to come in fast. (alot of sleepless nights for mommy and daddy). We are thrilled izzy is healthy and has no issues with her legs as she gets bigger (since she was breech)
August 2015 - November 2015
Update on mom and dad:
This year has been the most up and down year in a very long time, economically a lot of people have lost their jobs, housing was very expensive this year as we had to have a smaller home that is quiet costly .. the market is slowly bouncing back but i feel we as a family are still struggling in the economy side of things. We hope to find peace in the new year, by staying strong as a family we will concur all the struggles that will come our way, this year was a testimate to crazy things that had happened and it seemed like a long year. We hope to expand our family with another little boy or girl,, whenever god feels it is right for us to have another little child to complete our family of 4.
2016 will be a first for us for putting our oldest boys in school.. Nathan will be in ECS, and tanner will be in Playschool. We are very excited but scared to send them off in to the world.. as mommy has been with them all of their life , its going to be mommy and daddy in a puddle of tears for their first day. Mommy will only have Isabelle at home (that is going to be a big change, i am used to having all kids at home with me) . Isabelle will be turning a year old in march (the first birthday parties are the best!!!!!), Her party will be all Minnie Mouse, Tanner will be turning 3 in June and will be having a minions birthday party, Nathan will be turning 5 in may , he is undecided about his party he would either like dinosaurs or paw patrol. We will be showing all the things that we are creating for their birthdays. as we take you on our journey.
2016 will also be a first year of officially common law (legally on our taxes), we are unsure when we will be getting married but hopefully within the first few months of the year. We believe that a paper doesn't mean you are married , we believe that both of us have taken sacred vows to each other and to signify our love to each other it is only another step to officially taking my hubby's last name, as well as change our boys last name to my married name. We are excited for a new year, fresh start on another year.. We will continue to take as many pictures as possible to share our life with our followers. 2015 was a hard year for a lot of people in our city , a lot of people went homeless, a lot of people went without food for weeks as people lost their jobs.. It was sad year for alot of people in our country, i hope 2016 things will turn around as more jobs are created, so that people who really deserve it will get back to their life without having to break the bank like 2015 showed many that they had to , to survive.
We are excited to welcome new beginnings , our future is exciting !!!!!
Stay with us as we head in to the new year with high hopes , love and positive thoughts.
We are only as strong as our weakest link.
XOXO Lola and family
