Our Baby
  Quishaun was due to be born on December 25th. I had a feeling that he would arrive early, but I had no idea just how early it would be! On the morning of October 23rd, Tavares left for work as usual. I could barely get around at this point. I was sitting on the couch around noon, when I stared going into labor. I called Tavares. He was at least an hour from home, but somehow he made it in 20 minutes. We were off to the hospital, eagerly looking forward to meeting our beautiful baby. We did not know if we were having a girl or a boy. I had suspected it was a boy, however. We were admitted as soon as we reached the hospital. Grandma and grandpa were waiting for us. Just a mere 15 hours later, our precious Quishaun was born. It was six seventeen o'clock in the evening, yet we had a large group of family and friends all looking through the glass, into the nursery. Everyone agreed that it appeared that Quishaun was smiling. He seemed very content, and was not fussy.

He had to stay in the hospital longer than usual and spent most of his time in Intensive Care Nursery due to a blood disorder. He finally received a blood transfusion to save his life!

Two days later, on November 29th, he came home with us. He seemed to be very comfortable with his surroundings. We had, what seemed like, an endless parade of visitors. Not only was Quishaun showered with gifts, he was showered with love.

Quishaun is getting pretty vocal these days. daddy insists that he said, "Dadda", yet I think it's still a little early for that. He loves peas and carrots, and loves piggy back rides on grandpa's shoulders. We haven't had much sleep, but we also enjoy spending every possible moment with baby, who we fondly call "lil man".
