Labor of Love

It has been forever....once again since I last posted. A lot has changed since then. I am now a mom!!! Kaleb Joshua was born on November 11th. It was the the most amazing experience. I had him naturally in a birth pool. Everyone thought I was crazy to forego drugs, but I figured women have been doing this for years and nothing is impossible for God. I won't say it was easy, but it was worth it and I believe I will do it again, God willing.

As far as my hair goes, Sisterlocks are great for labor!!!Honestly, I was able to retighten my hair a week before I went into labor and the thought of not having to worry about hair was such a good feeling. As black women I know it is hard sometimes not the think so much about hair. But it's great when you don't have to worry about sweating out a perm or having braids installed that are too tight in efforts not to look a hot mess.
In the meantime, I hope to update with more recent pics since I will be home on maternity leave for a while. Thanks to those who were praying for a safe delivery. God has truly blessed my husband and I with the miracle of life.
