I remember when we lived in Greensboro, I was in 5th grade and she was in the 3rd grade at Guilford Middle School. The year was 1986 and Kami had taken a field trip that day (I think her class was going to the Natural Science Center or something). Anyway, this particular day was when the space shuttle 'Challenger' exploded in the air. I started freaking out because for some weird reason I was thinking Kami may have been on that shuttle! Duh!
I also remember this girl on our bus who would taunt us. She was a year older than me and mean as a snake! She didn't like me for some reason, so she would take it out on Kami. So, I started making Kami sit beside the window and I would sit near the aisle. That way, she would have to get past me to say anything to Kami-that was my way of protecting her as her "big sister". I also remember a time when a boy in our neighborhood was running his mouth to Kami at the bus stop one morning. Now keep in mind, this was a friend of Kami's and they used to get together and write book reports for fun. Ok, anyway, Kami and I didn't go to the same school-she was still at the middle school and I was at the high school, so she rode a different bus. She had come home the day before upset because this guy was talking about our family, saying really ugly things. So, I decided that this particular morning I was going to give him what for. There were about five or six of them waiting on the bus-I proceeded to tear out the front door, donning my curlers and marched my toothpick self over to the bus stop. With my tiny arms flailing, I told him the deal and then marched myself back home to finish getting ready for school. Wow-that felt good!!
Kami, Kelli and I all went through a lot together-moving, meeting new people, moving, meeting new people, moving, meeting new people....well, we did move a lot! I am so proud to be their big sister and they are my best friends! Kami, I am so glad you are my sister and I'm so glad God gave us to each other. I'm glad we live (somewhat) close to each other and I'm glad our children are close and love each other. You make me laugh (a lot!), you have a contagious optimism, you are so fun to be with! I love you more than you will ever know and am always here for you. You are a special gift from God.
Happy, Happy Birthday!!!!!
I love you!!

There is a questionnaire going around on Facebook for you to get your children to answer. So, this is how my five year old son, Noah, views me. Some answers made me laugh, some touched my heart.
1. What is something your mommy always says to you?
That she loves me.
Hearing me say I love her.
When I am naughty.
By telling me jokes.
She liked to play with toys.
15.......haha, that one cracked me up!
20 inches tall.......this one made me laugh, too.
Play with me and cuddle with me. (made me smile)
Play with daddy.......that response made Tom and I both laugh.
Making a show.
Making hot chocolate.
Nothing. She's good at everything. (Made me realize that he probably won't see me this way forever, but right now I am happy that he thinks I can do anything!!)
Mac & Cheese. (That is HIS favorite food.)
She makes me laugh.
A Little Einstein.....that was good for my ego, haha.
Play & Read
We both love each other.
I am a boy and she is a girl.
I hear her tell me all the time that she loves me. (made me smile)
To see her mommy and daddy. (Nana & Papa, thought you'd like that one)

8-10 Love never dies. Inspired speech will be over some day; praying in tongues will end; understanding will reach its limit. We know only a portion of the truth, and what we say about God is always incomplete. But when the Complete arrives, our incompletes will be canceled. 11 When I was an infant at my mother's breast, I gurgled and cooed like any infant. When I grew up, I left those infant ways for good. 12 We don't yet see things clearly. We're squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won't be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We'll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us! 13 But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love."

New Hanover Medical Center - Betty H. Cameron Women's & Children's Hospital
We waited a few more hours at Dosher until VitaLink showed up to transport our little bity, 11 pound, baby in this ginormous ambulance. Nehemiah was put on this regular sized stretcher, but with a special twist. This particular stretcher had car seats straps built in. Four grown men tending to an infant is a precious sight!!

Dr. Patricia O'Brien
Once we arrived and settled into our room, Dr. Patricia O'Brien came in to check Nehemiah out and hear our story of all that had happened. After much conversation and evaluation of Nehemiah, he was diagnosed with Bronchiolitis. Bronchiolitis is an infection of the bronchioles, the small air passages in the lungs. It is common in young children and is the leading cause of serious lower respiratory illness in infants. It is usually caused by RSV, but in Nehemiah's case it was not. In infants, labored breathing exhausts them and they usually just stop breathing. Where as adults will continue to work hard at it no matter how exhausted they are.
