Congrats on your new edition to life! The journey is LONG but well worth it at the end; may be painful at times but you wouldnt trade it for the world! Although i was scared to being a mom to not 1 but 2 precious girls, motherhood is GREAT, especially when they start sleeping through the night! Best of luck to you and Bilal!

Glad to hear that MY Grandson likes the "violin". How soon can he start his lessons? I'm loving you all so much!
from: Gramy
9/27/2011 9:13:45 PM
It's been a while since I've posted. I've been trying out new names for myself, LOL! Now I'm leaning towards "Gramy". So Gramy goes shopping Friday night n Sunday. So much too pick from. I had no idea how cute the clothes for Boys are. The question is: Do I pick or get it all? I made some decisions knowing some items were on sale. Thank U GOD, total was less than I expected. After going over receipt, several items were much less than I realized. Hello BELK I will be back

Talking with Loren last night. She made an interesting point...Moms bond with their sons the way daughters are their daddy's little girls. Funny, my nephews do the same thing. There is a bond and a closeness there. From the way they want hugs, need to be held, even play in your hair, to the way their face lights up when you walk into their presence. Ironically, she said Anaiya is that way with Billy as Little Billy is with her. Looking forward to meeting this lil man and watching him grow into a bright and loving young man! Love always, Me!

from: LaLee
9/8/2011 7:34:06 AM
Samantha, I have waited and waited to write a post about this precious gift from God because I get so emotional just thinking about this beautiful life that God has created to answer a question that the world has been asking. I feel SOOOOO connected to this baby. God continues to show me so many wonderful things that He has in store for you both. He even showed me the sex of the child a few days ago and told me why He ordained this baby to come into the world... (I can't wait for you to find out...I hope you are as excited as I was)...Samantha (and Bilal) if I could only reveal what God has in store...But I can't! You will KNOW and SEE in God's due time. Just know that your baby has GREAT destiny and purpose. You are going to be amazed when destiny unfolds right before your eyes. I am just excited to be apart of the journey. I continue to pray for you, Bilal and baby __________________. Please know that I am here for you and I am so proud of you for your courage to be a catalyst that will change the WORLD! I love you BUNCHES!

I can hardly wait til Tuesday! 3 Baby stores (in Tupelo) know I'll be in there on Tuesday. I already have items picked out. :D I'll be leaving work early that day LOL!
