Happy Birthday Kain!

Even as I write this I still can't believe that my baby is 10 ! Now he is considered to be in the pre teen phase. Um nope...there is no way my baby is pre teen. It feels like it was just yesterday that he was born. He was suppose to be a January baby but he was ready to enter the world. So here are 10 random things about Kain.

1. He is very compassionate ,caring and very sensitive. He worries way too much about stuff. If Noah or Zoe cries he comforts them and sometimes he gets upset too.

2. He is a people pleaser and wants to make everyone happy. If you need something done just ask him. He loves helping out at school and at church.

3. Kain loves football. His favorite teams are Clemson and the Carolina Panthers!

4. He is a hard worker and tries really hard in school.

5. He is the reason Corey and I started going to church. He was going to Awana at another church with a friend. I picked him up one day and the teacher said that Kain had asked God to come into his life. He was baptised at that church too. I had been feeling a need to find us a church and this was the push we needed. It wasn't the same church but we found a wonderful place.

6. He has had 5 hospital stays. If it's gonna happen it will happen to him. He had to go to MUSC to have a scan on his eye. He was born without an optic nerve so he is blind in 1 eye. Had tubes put in twice in his ears. He had his tonsils and adenoids taken out. Then he had to have his appendix removed. Yes a lot of this is minor things but he has a Factor 9 deficiency which means he bleeds more than others. So we had to be in the hospital of each of these "minor" things.

7. He is a mini me of his father. That is where the comedian in him comes from.

8. Kain still lets Noah sleep with him when he asks. He would never admit it but he likes Noah sleeping beside him. They are very close even though they fight like cats and dogs sometimes.

9. Kain did not get his first tooth till he was 11 months. I never thought he was gonna have teeth.
10. He loves to say that he gonna be a two digit number. You would think he's able to drive or something!

Happy 10th birthday Kain! You are growing into the wonderful young man God wants you to be!
