Family of 6!

Well, here I am finally blogging again! Please forgive my long absence and leaving you in suspense on my 40week date of pregnancy. Well, the baby finally came out a few days after the post on September 19. For some reason this pregnancy was full of much anxiety...but all went well.

Micaiah Kairos was born on 9-19-11 and weighed 7lbs 8oz.
Pronounced my-kai-uh. It is the name of a prophet in 1 Kings 22. It means 'Who is like God?' and Kairos is Greek and means 'a God appointed time or opportunity'. He has been a baby of timing from the beginning! For those of you who really like nick names...How about Kai? It is in both his first and middle name...and Samuel calls him Kai-Kai.
He has been an amazingly mellow little guy. He is content to lay on our bed looking around and putting himself to sleep. He has been sleeping through the night since he was 7 weeks old. (he is now 10 1/2 weeks). What an wonderful blessing! (God is helping me to save and channel my energy toward Samuel, who is now 2.

He will eat anything, especially if it is off the floor. He loves to eat out of the sugar bowl, or the sugar cubes if they are available. He will help himself to anything he can put a stool near and it food, lotion, markers...speaking of markers, today makes the third day in a row he has found a marker and colored on non-paper items...this week he has gotten the walls, carpet, potty chair, my rocking chair, and of course his legs and socks. AAAhhhhhh! BUT...he is really cute and happy while he does it all! The 'spoon' seems only to deter his ferocious determination for a short while, then back at it! But really, he is a very sweet boy and loves to snuggle...when I can catch him!  Enough of you know why I have no time to blog!)

So...enough of the words. Enjoy some pictures!
