God showed up several times today. First He came in the thoughtfulness of an Easter basket… Those eggs we dyed yesterday, were put into baskets for all of us, not just Kobi and it made me cry to be given such a sweet and thoughtful gift. Each of our baskets had the eggs with our names on them, and then some of our favorite things (jelly beans, cashews, toys).
Then God showed up to fight for me. During a misunderstanding, where I could have really argued my point in a not so nice way, I decided to keep my mouth shut and fingers from typing and just thought about how I could approach the situation and the Lord allowed for the other person to see their mistake and make things right.
Lastly, God showed up in the conversations that William and I were able to have. We didn’t agree about everything and I didn’t shut down, but instead pushed through until we finished and had resolutions in place. All of which is progress for me!
Y’all we made it! Kobi is officially one year old today!! I have so many emotions running through me but I haven’t had time to process them all because I was too busy getting everything together for her birthday celebration that we had tonight. But I’m sure things will come rushing in soon enough.
Kobi has grown so much over this pass year it amazes me every day! She is starting to walk a little bit with assistance, she loves eating real food (we had pancakes earlier today as a birthday tradition and she ate pasta and rolls, for dinner) She loves music, dancing to music or singing to the music. She knows how to clap, and she loves animals (we’re hoping to take her to the zoo tomorrow if the weather cooperates). She’s gone from a 2lbs. 11 oz. baby to a 24lbs. infant… she’s getting tall and she just wants to see everything and figure out how things work (we think she might be an engineer). She likes watching t.v and spending time with her daddy. Kobi loves to laugh and has such a big smile, Oh and she has two teeth now!! It’s so fun to hear her crunch on different foods.
Y’all my baby made it! Despite everything that happened to get her to this point we made it and I am so thankful and grateful to my God who kept her, and us! Thank you to each and every one of you who said a prayer, who brought food, who shared kind words, who rallied around us this past year. Thank you for your love and support and for cheering us on, you are loved and appreciated and I hope that each of you get to see Kobi one day in real life!
Here are a few pictures from her celebration!
Ten whole months have gone by and she’s so close to being one we definitely need to start thinking about her birthday party among other things. She is 20 lbs. She loves to eat and wants to try all the food that everyone else is eating. She is finally saying mom and she says dada and baba and just today while holding daddy’s hands she can pull herself up in a standing position! She still loves music and is learning to pray for people. She loves to talk, loves people and her daddy and is genuinely a happy and joyful little girl! She’s so smart and clever and strong and I completely love her even when she tries to hold her spoon full of food and gets it everywhere or kicks me in the stomach while she’s sleeping or grabs my homework and tries to eat it (she loves paper too)! The hard days are always worth it and I love being Kobi’s mom!
Here’s a link to see a picture of Kobi for those of you who aren’t already following me on social media. Be blessed!!
Can you believe Kobi is already 9 months old? She is growing up so fast I just want to hold her forever! She is 27.5 inches long and weighs 19lbs 9 oz! She is catching up percentile wise to where she needs to be and she’s just an all around joyful baby! She wears shoes now and is beginning to eat more table foods. She holds her own bottle and has a sippy cup she uses on occasion. She loves to talk and spend time with others. She is still teething but we’re hopeful she’ll have teeth soon!
I honestly love spending any extra time I get with her and she enjoys helping me with my homework and helping me cook (meaning she usually sits on my lap or next to me when I’m doing homework and is in the kitchen watching me cook). She can stand with assistance but is cautious of falling and she absolutely loves going to the park!
That’s Kobi in a nutshell! Sorry there are still no pictures… it’s further out than I’d hoped on the budget list… but if you’re friends with me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Tumblr you can catch glimpses of her there!
Today Kobi turned a whole seven months old! And I am so excited because she is really coming into her own personality! When she doesn’t like something she blows spit bubbles, and she doesn’t hesitate to chew you out when necessary! She does like talking to people and she is very curious. She is almost sitting up by herself, she’s a good 16 pounds now and 25 inches long, and she loves to eat squash! She has found her feet while on her back and she still likes to roll over from her stomach to her back. She is also teething and may be cutting teeth soon soon and very soon!
Y’all Kobi is pure joy and we are absolutely blessed she is here with us! When I get the ability to post pictures again I’ll update this with her cute 7 month old pictures!! Love y’all!!
