Snow Day

Call DSS!!! (Dept of Social Services)...I've taken my newborn baby outside in a very cold day for the sake of taking pictures in the snow!!

Sleeping Beauty

P.M. Fusser

My sweet perfect baby started having meltdowns when she was about 3 weeks. During the day she is absolutely wonderful--she eats, sleeps and is just as cute as she can be! I get mentally prepared everyday as if I was part of the TV show Survivor ("Parents Tribe" vs. "Baby Tribe"). I try to come up with different strategies on how to win. "Baby Tribe" consistently out do "Parents Tribe" and she doesn't allow us to forget about her lung capacity. Around 5pm she starts fussing and usually the saga goes on until 10-11pm. Kyle and I have tried pretty much everything to calm her down, but I keep my sanity knowing that it will last 5-6 hours and she'll eventually "pass out" and fall sleep AND that means that I WILL TOO!!
This picture is one of our attempts to get her from stop crying. I was rocking her and making some "white noise" with the hairdryer. Everything works for a little while, but NOTHING lasts for too long. The other day we took her in a car ride for about 15 minutes. She quickly fell asleep in the car and K and I felt like we finally had found a solution for her evenings meltdown. Victory at last! Well, like I said a moment ago...nothing lasts for too long. We got her back into the house and we left her in the car seat (we didn't dare to move our little dictator from her comfortable throne). Within 5 minutes, we heard the dreadful sound that we still haven't gotten accustomed to ...the crying started and our hope of solution had ceased!

Our Christmas Gift

Jacqueline Charis Kuba was due on Christmas Day, but came a bit early (9 days to be exact). Kyle and I were thrilled that "our Chritmas gift" had finally arrived! She was born on 12/16/08, at 6:27PM, weighed 8 lbs 8 oz and 21inches via c-section and after a VERY LONG 18 hours of labor!!!! We feel very blessed that the Lord has entrusted us with this tiny little person to love, care for and to raise her knowing about Jesus and His abundant love for us and the gift of eternal life!
