Happy Birthday to my Baby!!

 My son Isaac is my 8th child and my baby..  yesterday he turned 11 years old!  

He is a sweet, soft hearted and caring boy.  He opens car doors and doors at stores for me and his sisters, gladly is always there to help out, is a lover of all things camo (his pants, shirts, shorts, pajamas, shoes, bedding, even the light plate switch in his room is camo LOL...), always has a smile on his face and is a real source of joy to our household.  I can’t believe is 11 years old now!   

The years since his birth have really flown by!  He is my miracle baby..  he had a prolapsed cord and I had to have a transfer (he was scheduled to be a home birth) and an emergency c-section to save his life.  He was oxygen deprived for about 5 to 6 minutes.  Thanks to the fast work of the hospital staff and the mercies of the Lord his life and mine were saved.  I had a ruptured uterus and it took 6 hours of life saving surgery to save my life after he was born (and 9 days in ICU and another 3 days after that before I could go home).  I thank the Lord all the time for giving me these years to be here and continue to raise my children and be a wife to my wonderful husband.  God is good all the time!   

Happy Birthday Isaac!!




  1. Crystal-I too am thankful to the Lord for giving you this time

    with your precious family. 11 years later, you have helped

    me so much in our household with all the info on your site

    and blog.You are a blessing to people you don't even know

    who live miles away.Many thanks to you, your lovely

    family, and the Lord.

  2. Tell Isaac Happy Birthday from us! My oldest (now 16) was delivered emergency c-section from lack of oxygen as well. I tell him that's why his favorite color is blue! :)


  3. I love this-life is so precious, isn't it?

    Happy Birthday to Isaac! My baby will turn 10 next

    Tuesday, on St. Patrick's Day. She was my 5th pregnancy and easiest labor and delivery. She was also the only one who didn't keep me up all night in labor, being born at a lovely 9 pm. :)

    Hey, I have a personal question for you Crystal. I've been fighting a bad yeast (******l) infection for about a month or a little longer. I finally broke down and went to a doctor who gave me 2 pills-one a week for 2 weeks. That hasn't even done the trick.

    I made my first batch of kefir 2 days ago and made a smoothie with alot of it this morning. I also have been taking/eating/drinking plain organic yogurt, a liquid acidopholus, garlic pills...and I've tried several other things.

    Do you have any other ideas? I'm getting desperate here! :)

  4. Hope you had a great day!

    Brandon and Trevor say "Hi and Happy Birthday"
