I will tell you the second time having children is just as hard as the first, but I would immagine the third would be the easiest, mainly becouse you have already done it twice. Not that we are going to have another, we already made shure that was not gonna happen. And Josh is pretty open about his “fixing”...lol @ how he told his friends….I am proud of his openness, he is setting a good example for his boy. My point here is we are all trying to raise these children, we have our problems, and alot of them! but I have defently became a better mother becouse of what I got right here in this picture. Just a personal goal I always want to have… 5 years ago

I am in love with my children, everynight I put them to bed, kiss them on there plush cheaks, and tell them they are so beautiful, that I love them, as I say it, “Alot, alot, alot, alot.” Dekota started school today, and I wanted to cry when he drove away, he is so gorgious. Trinity is starting to sit up, she smiles and plays, and makes my morning bright. But I guess that is what makes me a good mother…. 5 years ago
My babies are growing up and they are beautiful. Dekota is starting school soon, he is going to be 5 on his next birthday! Trinity is 5 going to be 6 months old, she is getting her first tooth as I write. Every night I put them to bed and kiss them, tell them I love them, and as they dreamily go to slumber land, I thank god for giving me such beautiful and healthy children. 5 years ago
There is always room for improvement, especially as my children get older. I am 7 days away from having my second child, unless I go into labor, and I have been working on introducing Dekota to his new baby sister, and I know that he is so ready, he gets so excited when I tell him that it wont be that long now… 6 years ago
We are still going good, things are good like normal, Dekota is getting smarter and bigger by the day. Awaiting his new sister, helping his mother, he is such a good boy, and thankx to his mother he is a very polite boy. lol Well, needless to say as a mother I am always working on becoming a better mother, sometimes he makes it hard sometimes he makes it easy, but I love every moment of it. 6 years ago
I had an ultrasound today and I hate surprizes, or not knowing something so I said tell me when he asked me if I wanted to know, I have a wonderful boy full of questions and piss and vinerger, now a little girl to spoil just as much….I love being a mom, it had defently gave me a bigger purpose, someone to make me a better person…. 6 years ago
Well long story short I moved to decker with dekotas father, got married, became pregnant, and moved to Wyoming! We are working together to become better parents, working on getting our own home, our own life, and have what every american wants a family with minimal problems as possible. so I am always going to be working on this goal…. 6 years ago
Dekota is now potty trained! He is Talking is total sentences and tells everyone everything, yes saying to much! Josh and I are married and working on having a baby brother or sister! 7 years ago
I cannot believe it has been almost three years, kinda feels like maybe a year at the most. I cannot count the ways that Dekota makes me happy! Things are wonderfil, both mom and dad are in the home, loving, big household. 7 years ago
I dont have a toddler anymore! I have a kid, how things for him self, answer asked questions, laughing at jokes, showing everyone how smart he really is. Kinda scarry, but I would not want to miss it for a thing. He is the best thing that god has gaven me! 7 years ago
I am in ECE (Early Childhood Education) and it really helps me become a better mother. Yes I am Very busy with homework and preocipied with finishing college. In the end I know I am doing this for Dekota….... 7 years ago
Yesterday Dekota was sitting by the window watching his dad dig through the snow for the car keys thathe lost. For a while it got quiet, I was wondering what happened! This picture is what I found! I LOVE HIM< HE IS SO CUTE! 7 years ago
Dekota is in that really fun stage of toddler, he is speaking in sentences, can say anything, just spunging up with everything! He really is the coolest, I cannot express that enough, I tear up or giggle at the thought of him sometimes… 7 years ago
While I am going to school, now full time, it seems as I don see him as much as I want. The other night cuddling with him, I thought to my self, I havent barely cuddled with him in almost 2 days! This sememster is going to be vary demanding on me and my time, I know I will be Very busy even without a job. 3 Early childhood education classes, any college student that has done it will say its sometimes too much.
But I still tell my self I amdoing this for our future. 7 years ago
Really nothing to write, today we counted 500 pennies together, he can get to like 19 and he is over it, but he tryed… 7 years ago
For the first time in Dekotas life he is living in a full family home, I think he loves it alot. Daddy helps him brush his teeth and takes baths. They cuddle and everything elce, it is nice to see someone elce love on him. Its even nicer when Dekota sees both mom and dad kissing and cuddleing. Now he knows what a true family is sposto be… 7 years ago
Tonight Dekota asked me if he can go to bed, normally he kicks crys and screams. And I hate bed time becouse of they way he goes, but if this is a new pattern, then SWEET! 7 years ago

We woke early to go see what santa clause left for Dekota, FOR ME: it was the best christmas so far becouse I got to see Dekota egerly open his own gifts this year. Like any kid on christmas, he woke with a smile and went to work like he knew what was going on. Its amazing how smart he is, how just telling him something impacts him so much, god do I love that little man of mine!
Then we went to church together as a family. Josh, Dekota, and I all went to church and then came home to have a big family dinner. This picture is our first family pic together besides a few in the hospital when Dekota was born… 7 years ago
Christmas eve we had our first family christmas, where we had probably 30 people in the house at one time. All day we snacked on cookies, treats, and mengled with family we have not seen in ages. And at the end of the evening we opened gifts from everyone before they left. It was special for Dekota for the most part. He was with 6 other children ranging from baby to 9 years old, getting to play with other kids is something he has not had a chance to do alot. I now know how wonderful he really is, he kept taking grandma Kings walker from the other children and giving it back to her, he would take things from the babys that he knows that he is not even sposto touch and put them away. He really is a good boy! AND we did all we could to try to have him the best christmas we could. 7 years ago
Christmas is a special time for children, when magic and love is everywhere. My son just moved in with his family that he has been missing for years. It seems that there is always something for him to do, Or atleast something for Josh or I to do that is. Having mom and dad for christmas is a big deal for him, and I think that mom and dad are now a permenent thing. This will defently change his life for the good, his family loves him so much…
One regreat I have this christmas is that I did not get to get a picture of Dekota with santa clause!
—The pic is me and santa at three! Next christmas Dekota will be three! 7 years ago
Living with family is a hard thing to do, with daily discrimination on household deals it is hard to keep up. But I believe I am doing this for my son, and for my love for his dad.
Dekota wakes up with a big smile on his face, and when one of us goes away for a min or more he always raises up his hands and says “Mommy!” or “Daddy!”, GOD do I love that!
He really loves his daddy and family, I wish dad, luke, and grandpa were here! 7 years ago
Dekotas second birthday was fun, I wish I would have more for him, but I did what I could. Obiviously the family did there part for being there: great grandpa (to dekota), grandma on my side, grandma on the other side (my soon-to-be-mother-in-law, lol she really is the best!), Dekota aunt, my uncle (Deotas great-uncle?)idk, Uncle Luke(brother and best friend), and grandpa (my daddy!).
It was a great day, he got lots of gifts a birthday cake in the shape of spungebob squarepants, and lots of pictures to back it up, hin hint, comment for more pics…
The best girt was that everyone showed up, what a wonderful day! 7 years ago
His whole life excpt for him living in his basinette, he has been in his own room. That will give him a sence or mine and his, but for the last week he has slept in my room on his own bed, still seperate but still sharing. I love watching him sleep, his little lip has a curl, if you look in other pics of him sleeping you will see it better. He just lyes there with no cares. Boy do I remember those days, even though I was not in the best of situations I most of the time felt safe becouse of family members that would not let anything happen to me, maybe it was the kid innocence in me.
The innocence they have is so cool, I love that about children. When they are in that state of mind they can learn anthing. I named off some dinoasours (not that I got any of the words right) and a day later he was trying to name them off to my dad. He under stood the “souris” and “don” Like he was calling them trackerdon, or sourisouris…lol
Even before I had Dekota i saw that ability in kids and I found it so facinating. I belive there is more to children than we know right now. MAybe they do have the ability of youth, the mind is a wonderful thing… 7 years ago
Yet another change in plans…What a surprise…Tuesday morning Josh and his preacher will be here to bring us back to Decker! The move was delayed becouse of the terrible snow storm…
I guess I have a Baker College within tem mins of home, and one that is 30 mins, and another that is an hour away. I have a feeling that after this winter I am going to get a chance to kick school in the butt. To finish…
P.s. I have a new video of dekota at a special services/early head start meeting where you see him playing with me and a few other people…I wish i knew where I can put parts of that on the internet like a minute or so…Hint hint hint….e-mail me… 7 years ago
Having things change unexpectidly can be stressful, but I am trying my hardest to not show it. FOr the last week Dekota has had his little bed next to mine, and yesterday we took a nap together. I miss the old days when he was little enough to sleep on my chest, he was like his own little display, like a prize. Laying there on my chest like a baby, lol, now he moves too much. (I remember thinking that at 6 months old)
He is like me, kicks and moves alot in his bed. Sharing is cool with him becouse he again is like me, when someone is next to me I will be still. He surprized me a few weeks ago and he got real sick. So as any concerned mom either I was to sleep in his room or he is to sleep in mine. Moving the television or/and the computer was out of the question.
Anyway, I dont sleep well so I would just set up and watch him sleep like I did when he would speep on my chest. And I noticed HE SNORES! Little turkey! Well I know from my personal experiences, for example I sposto sleep with a machine to keep me breathing becouse I stop breathing ten times a minuite and crap like that. From my experiences I need to get him in to a speep study, I really dont want to hook him to a machine every night like I do to myself, I GUESS that his breathing is more importnat. (That was a joke for those people that dont know that about me.) 7 years ago
Still waiting, I was told that I am not moving till this weekend, and my stress is edivent, I am all packed, trying to stay that way with a toddler, ya right….... 7 years ago
Last few minutes to sit quitetly alone in my own room, last few minutes to say I have my own place. I will soon be saying this is ours, Josh and Is room, and stuff like that, I am scared and tired from all the packing. Just minutes away from unpluging the computer and calling it a night, I want to wake early to finish the kitchen and bathrooms. Only hours away from my new life. 7 years ago
I am trying so hard, I am to be done packing in six hours or less, I cannot keep my mind on just packing becouse of Dekota. At one point today I called my grandpa and asked him to come over, all i needed was a break from Dekota. After Crying for an hour I got myself together and told myself it could be worse. I jave passed my exam and I am now taking a break and contiplating on packing.
