Proud Mamma

Ever since I became pregnant with Micah, I could tell that he was going to be special. I know that all mothers say this, but humor me. I have always sensed that he would be a sweet soul with a warm heart. I prayed that he would be studious, smart and love to learn. I have been given all that I'd hoped for and more. When Micah was about 22 months old, he revealed to us that he could read his letters. From there, he grew exponentially; writing letters, learning numbers and even reading, writing and spelling even elaborate words. Now, he can read and comprehend pretty much anything that he lays his eyes on, even reading books without aide. My sister who is a 2nd grade teacher, says that he is pretty much already at least at a 1st grade level with his reading comprehension and wants us to get him tested before starting school. Now, I am working on teaching him Spanish, and he has already memorized many colors and almost has the Spanish alphabet memorized. I am amazed every day by the depth of comprehension of the world around him that my three yr old displays. We have not been able to spell around him for over a yr, and we often have to remind ourselves and each other that he is still only a child when it comes to correcting him. He has been a patient, loving big brother to Makayla and we love seeing him play and interact with her. I cannot wait to see who and what my son becomes. Our job is to guide him, keep him humble and close to God, and foster the sense of wonder and joy that he feels every time he learns something new. I feel so very blessed.

Dr. D is Coming to Town

The proverbial light at the end of tunnel is finally coming into view. My family and I are moving back to Arizona. I will be joining a private practice as an Obstetrician/ Gynecologist, and Randy will be looking into starting a career in the culinary industry. Right now, I am trying to continue to  learn as much as I can during this last 6 months of residency training, and study for my board exams. A lot is going on all at once, but I am thankful to God for getting me through this and bringing me to this point. I am also excited to finally be moving back to Arizona. My family is eager to have me back home and I am looking forward to my children being able to grow up with their cousins and get to know the rest of the family.

God is Good!

A lot has happened

I do feel bad that it has been an embarrassingly long time since I have even looked at my blog further more posted on it. Residency, having another baby, dealing with the stresses, demands and challenges of life left no time for much else. I now have a beautiful 4 month old daughter, Makayla Renee Sillik, who is an additional joy in our lives, and I am finishing up residency training (finally), studying for my boards, and working on securing a job in an OB/GYN practice so that my family and I can move back to Arizona. Randy is no longer a database analyst, but is now finishing up with Culinary school, following a calling he has had for pretty much his entire life. I make no promises as to how often I will be posting between now and when I graduate in June, but I don't plan on neglecting it like I have before. It will be nice to read others' blogs again too and see what is going on in the real world again.

Videos of Micah walking

Micah has been taking more and more steps each day, since he was just under 10 months old I believe, and Randy and I keep meaning to take some videos, but either we are too in awe to go get our phones or camera, or by the time we get what we need, Micah does not want to walk any more. I finally captured some of his moves today. Enjoy :)

Sometimes he gets so pleased with himself when he makes it long distances. Or other times, he'll be so much about his business that he acts like to him its no big deal. lol
