Splish, Splash....Happy Birthday Leah!

Today we celebrated Leah's birthday. We had lots of fun. Uncles, aunts, friends and more helped us celebrate.

Friday, we had a check up for Leah's hand. Dr. Jabaley allowed me to let Leah swim for her birthday party. We simply had to change the dressing after the pool fun. In two days, we can take the bandages off for good. He said she healed beautifully. Thank goodness, we leave for the beach in the morning! YEAH! Beach pics to come.

Time flies........

Two years ago on July 19, my mom and I were sitting on my couch in Jackson when I suddenly felt mild back pain. We joked I could be in pre-labor. My mom suggested we go walking. WHAT - walking. I was over due with my second child and my only thoughts were to sit back, relax, call the doctor and let her do the rest. WALKING. Looking back now, I was glad we did. I think it helped. I finally woke Chris up around 4 am that morning and suggested we go onto the hospital. Around 11am on July 20, my beautiful 9lb 2 oz baby girl - yes 9lbs! was born. Leah Allen Honea. She was perfect, literally 9 - 10 on the apgar. I'll never forget after they took her to "freshen up" and all the routine things they do with newborns, one by one my family members kept walking in the room saying I wasn't going to believe her hair. I laughed it off. They kept saying it was wavy and brown. WHATEVER I kept thinking, Chris, Kate and I are all blonde - no waves. To my amazement, they finally brought me my beautiful brown haired curly not wavy headed child.

Two years have flown by and I have loved every minute. I once told someone who was expecting their second child, that you get to enjoy the second child's first few weeks a little more than you do the first child's. You know, you're over the first time mom thing. I always wondered how I could love anymore than I already did. It is completely different. We love just as much, no more, no less, in completely different ways and for different reasons.

What a week!

PRAISE GOD FROM WHOM ALL BLESSING FLOW! This has been the case at my house this week. We definitely received a blessing. On Sat. July 7, Leah had an accident involving her left index finger. She caught her little finger in a vent. After a trip to our emergency doctor in town, we were referred to a hand specialist in Jackson. Sweet Dr. Jabaley performed the surgery on July 10, and gave us a positive report. She has really done GREAT with her circumstances and if it had been me, I would still probably been on major pain meds and up in the bed! HA! I am posting some pics, hope they are too yuck for any of ya'll.
