Tavita is Loved

Our friends, the Marchants, took our children to church while we went to the hospital to have the baby. When Miti went to pick them up, the Marchants fed him, the kids and my parents. What a blessing to have good friends.

The kids were so excited to see their brother. In 2006, all the girls wanted for Christmas was to feel a baby in my tummy. That wish didn't come true, because I wasn't expecting then. The kids were so excited to see and feel and touch their new brother.

Miti and I were texting Suzanne during church and giving her updates. As soon as the baby was born she rushed to the hospital to meet him.

Tavita's Birthday Party

I was going to be induced on Monday, so Grandma and Grandpa had a flight Sunday afternoon to Vegas. I went into labor on my own and they missed the birth by an hour. Right after the baby was born, Miti left to get them from the airport. They stayed with us for a week. It was great to have them come visit. I joke that I will have to have another baby for them to come visit again. lol


We are so blessed to have Tavita. I remember when I looked at him for the first time, I couldn't believe he was actually here on earth with us. A few years ago, I heard a voice, "Mommy, don't forget me." I told Miti about this experience and we knew that we needed to have another child. Long story short - over three years later . . . finally I was holding our new son in my arms. We are so blessed!

The Pregnant Mamma!

Isn't it amazing how puffy our faces look when we are pregnant.
Also, notice the difference the pose makes in how large we look. Yikes!!!
