'Twas the morning of Christmas...

'Twas the morning of Christmas, and all through the place
Excitement was flowing with joy on each face. 
The Filipinos were all gone,  only the Americans were there. 
Breakfast was was quite the affair! 
Fruit smoothies, omelets, gravy and biscuits
Each of these thought to be great favorites. 
The party was moved, up the stairs we all went
We'd open all the presents that were sent.
After the gifts came the Christmas movies.
Little did we know we'd soon be catching babies!! 
Dogs were barking, so I peaked out the window
And saw a tricy parked below.
Down the stairs I went to open the door.
When I saw the woman I thought today would not be a bore! 
Active, was she ever! The baby's coming she shouted, 
Call Georgia! Will she make it? I doubted. 
I threw a sheet on the bed. 
And just in time to see the baby's head!
Two more Christmas babies we caught
A more memorable Christmas could not be bought.

Long see

It's been too long since my last update. Rather than write a long update I'll just post a bunch of pictures to show you what I've been up to!! I hope you enjoy them!! =)

Happy Birthday Hosea Luke!! October 12, 2011

October 26, 2011 Doesn't sweet little Tarren look just like a little pumpkin? 

October 31-November 4 I got to go up to Bugnay again. 
I love visiting the had been too long!! 

I love this old woman...she's so cute                                                                       I got to cook over the fire in the home where 
and has quite a bit of spunk too!                                                                             we stayed...nothing like pancake mush!!

This woman has the most beautiful smile,                                                               This day on outreach I think I ended up 
       but she doesn't like to show her teeth.                                                                 weighing about 15 babies of different ages!

 Meet Norvin - November 7, 2011

 The day after Anrhey was born (November 18, 2011) I went to his home to check on him and his mama.

Even though it was a short trip, I had a nice little break in Manila for a day. 

Like I said, it was a NICE break!! =)

Just a couple days after Thanksgiving I got to attend a breech birth!! It was a really good birth too!!
The baby cried a little right after he was born and only needed a little help to breath. So much to be thankful for!! 

Each Tuesday I work in the clinic doing prenatal exams. I love watching 
a moms face when she hears her baby's heartbeat for the first time!!

This little guy weighed only 2.1 kgs (4.6 lbs) when he was born on 
December 2, 2011. Please pray that he is doing good. His mama hasn't come 
back for any postpartum checks and I worry that maybe he's not gaining enough.

This is Lilibeth, doesn't she look good for being in labor? 

She was so excited to finally meet her sweet little girl on December 8, 2011.

So, that's some of what I've been up to the past two months...fill in the gaps with LOTS of studying, sleeping when I can and having fun with my roommates! I hope that December is going well so far for you and that you enjoy the holiday season!! I know I will!!
