From Bird

What up? Bird here.......
I snuck out of my crib when everyone was fast asleep, which is a big deal for me cause I had to unhook from my pump, clamp my tube, and put the pump on hold as not to waist my precious water that I get at night. I have something really important to tell you all, and it just couldn't wait. I heard momma say that she wanted to wait until everything was official, and safe. Not sure what she meant by that. I'm really proud here though, and since this blog is about me I don't think momma will mind if I go ahead and share. Something funny happened earlier this week though, and since I know momma wont ever tell anyone I will. I threw up, and some of it got on my space heater, momma didn't know she just cleaned up the floor, and my throw up burned onto the heater. Isn't that funny! Momma might not appreciate that I told you all that, but every time I see that dark stain on the heater, I laugh inside. Its getting late, and it will take me a while to hook up after I climb back into my crib, so I better just spill it.........
I'm going to be a big brother. I heard momma say that this little brother or sister of mine was the first unplanned baby in the family, she likes to plan. She thinks she is in charge when she plans things and they work out, but this time she was surprised! I think I heard momma say that this baby will be born around my birthday in September, but she wont see the doctor until February 4th for a better due date. I think momma is a little scared, I even heard big Noah say he hoped that this baby wouldn't be in the hospital as long as I was. It didn't make me sad, I worried a lot of people and I know everyone missed me and momma a lot. I know Momma saw a lot in the NICU, and the thought of not getting to hold the baby after its born scares her a lot. I hated that part too, I just wanted momma to hold me, but I couldn't breathe either, so that wasn't good. I knew momma was near, and she read me stories into a tape player so they could play over and over again, maybe that's why I love books so much now, anyway, I'm not worried, I know everything is going to be fine, I hope momma doesn't worry too much. I can tell she worries sometimes, I just smile, or stick my hand in her mouth to let her know it will be ok, she gets it.
better go, I think they are on to me..............Love bird
p.s I like this bloggin thing, maybe I can make it a Friday thing, thats a great idea! Im so smart.
Be back in a week dog!

Alex, you are a pro at this blogging thing. What fun news. You will be a helpful and loving big brother - I just know it! It will be a big challenge for your mommy and I will be praying for a special measure of God's strength for you and for her. A brother or sister is a sweet gift of love from God and He will give all of you just what you need when the time comes. God bless you. I am excited to hear more from you on Fridays little Alex. Take good care of your mommy. I send hugs and kisses to you and your family. Congratulations on your happy news.

Staci said...

WOW! Congratulations! I am so happy for your family :) At first I wasn't sure if that was Alex's news since he was wearing the Big Brother shirt but then I thought maybe it was one of the other boy's shirt.

Hey Alex...great post there big guy! Forget about crawling...you are a great blogger :)

Michelle said...

HOLY COW!! LOL Did you know you were pregnant before or after I announced that I'm pregnant? We're in the same boat! I'm due Sept. 15th (by my calculations) but will officially find out Feb. 5th. How funny that both of us are planners and God gave us surprise babies! Can't wait to hear more!

Susie said...

Congratulations! :)

I'm away from the computer for the day, and your Twitter had me waaaaay confused this morning since I hadn't check blog yet.

I hope you're not feeling too sick, hang in there!

Jason and Vanessa said...

Alex,
I just wanted to let you know that since this is your Mommy's blog she will most likely figure out that you busted out of your room. You are going to have to get a little more creative next time my friend by now I'm sure she is on to you.

I also wanted to tell you congratulations your going to be a big brother how exciting! Tell your Mommy not to be worried because it is God who is forming this baby in her womb. For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb.I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you,when I was being made in secret,
intricately woven in the depths of the earth.Your eyes saw my unformed substance;in your book were written, every one of them,the days that were formed for me,when as yet there was none of them.
Psalm 139: 13-16

We will be praying for you guys, for your Mommy not to worry but just trust the Lord, for your Dad to be able to support and comfort your Mom during her pregnancy and the birth of the new baby, we will be praying for the sweet baby being formed in your Mom's womb that God would be glorified through the babies life, and for you and your brothers that yall would continue to be a huge blessing to your parents.

Love,
Vanessa Delgado

P.S. Thanks for telling us Alex your secret is safe with me!

Kelly said...

CONGRATS!! Thanks for sharing Alex! It is great to hear your side of the story. Is there something in the blog water! Does that make four RTS bloggin' mommies that are pregnant. So happy for your family.

malette-foreveryoung said...

OMG
I know a have not let any comments for along time but check in every day to see how things are going.
I am so happy for you.
I can relate to what you blogging about, some of what you are going I went thought a few years ago. and some I am still dealing with. Mother of children with special needs are always doing things that other mother would never thing about doing.

Jenn said...

Way cool! How exciting....
I was just wondering a couple days ago if there were any plans to add a brother or sister to the family. Guess now I know - no, there were no plans, and yes, one is being added. :)

Doris said...

Alex that's a secret worth getting out of bed to tell.

Jessica: A little bird told me your secret, sorry I can't tell you who the culprit is, I'm sworn to keep the secret.

My fourth child was also an accident, but we prefer to call it God had other plans. How else to do explain being pregnant when your nursing around the clock, never had a period yet (3rd child was 6 months old), using a diaphragm & a condom. Uhmmm. She was suppose to be here, it was part of the plan. Her pregnancy & birth went remarkably well compared to the preceding experience. Doctors said no more kids, what do they know?

Karalyn said...

How exciting! Congratulations!!!

Kenzie said...

Jessica-

Oh my goodness girl... I have been so absent from the blogging world for a while, barely reading other stuff and hardly posting (you might have noticed :)... sorry!) CONGRATULATIONS!!! That is so exciting, and yet, I understand how incredibly scary it is. All the joy and yet, not unbridled as before. I know your mind will wander, but remember to focus on what is true (Phil 4:8) and what you know right now. I am SO thankful that the ultrasound went well and that you will have a very astute doctor performing your 20 week. I love all these new babies so much... praying for your new little one growing inside, for your emotions and for peace to engulf you!

Love ya lots!... By the way, Alex looks PRECIOUS and is getting so big. I am amazed at his incredible progress...
