Kaitlyn Ashley Colbert's Story. (Part Fourteen)

Rated "G" by the Author.

Kaitlyn Ashley Colbert is going to become a big sister in a few months.

Colbie Colbert here.

Sorry if I haven't written since August of last year; you must think I died or dropped off the planet.  Not so.  Just have been very, very busy raising our three kids (all under the age of ten), and in just three months, there'll be another mouth to feed.

I am six months pregnant with our fourth child.  It is a little girl.  That means poor Granger, who is our two-year-old, will be outnumbered by females four to two.

Van (he's my husband) and I have decided to name our new baby-to-be Emma-Kate Michelle.  So far, everything is going to plan with my pregnancy: haven't had any problems, not even much in the way of morning sickness, which has been an answer to prayer.

I am happy to say that the children (Kaitlyn, Granger, and Diamond) are doing very well.  The doctor has tken Kaitie off the oxygen therapy; she has been doing fantastic since her heart surgery last yaer.  She loves school; she goes to a school for children with special needs (Kaitlyn has Down syndrome). 

Granger is doing a lot better since having double pneumonia last month; he spent Christmas in the hospital.  It was a scary time for all of us, but Granger is feeling much, much better, which is a huge relief.  He's turning into a holy terror again, so I know he must be feeling better.  LOL

As for Diamond, she enjoys taking dance and voice lessons; she has been discovered as being very talented in these two areas, so we are deciding to nurture her gifts.  Diamond wants to be a singer like her favorite singer, Celine Dion.  In addition to this, Diamond is involved in cheerleading.  Diamond has always been our family "star".

A lot of people think I or Van are pushing Diamond into competitive dance, voice, or cheerleading, or that we are stage parents.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Diamond has always wanted to dance, cheerlead, or sing, and so we are letting her.  As long as she wants to do it or enjoys it, then we won't stop her, but the moment it stops being fun for her, then we will put a stop to it immediately.  The ball is in her court, not ours.

Kaitlyn would love to join her big sister in dancing or cheerleading, but we might forgo it because it might be too hard on her heart.  We will, however, allow her to take voice lessons if it is okay with her.  She does like Kaitlyn Maher (as well as David Militello), and I think she would enjoy singing.  It would do her lungs a lot of good, as would swimming lessons, which we plan on enrolling her in this summer.

Little Granger, meanwhile, is happiest being a boy.  He is into everything and he is never still for a moment.  One cannot keep their eyes off of him for one second; if he had the chance, he might dismantle the entire Colbert house!  LOLOLOLOL

Well, I hate to run, but I have an appointment with my baby doctor (gynecologist), to see how Emma-Kate is doing inside my belly; hopefully she is still behaving herself.  LOL  I also have to take Kaitlyn to get her eyes checked; she has been having difficulty seeing for far distsnces; she may eventually end up needing glasses.

More adventures!  Whee!  LOL

I will write in here again soon; until later, this is Colbie saying so long and God bless!

~Love, your friend in Louisiana, Colbie Colbert.  :)

I do not remember earlier chapters of this story but it's so nice to see a family pulling themselves together with children that are once again healthy or heading towards being, not only healthy, but happy also. As always, Karen, great story.
Hoping that you're staying warm.
