I have two wonderful boys named Austin and Chris ages 9 and 4.
I describe Chris as an “old soul” that is calm and reserved, slow to react, and when he speaks, his words are meaningful. Austin’s personality is comparatively like mine, independent, robust and he has an attitude to be reckoned with. Austin’s birth was just like his personality — very tough. I was diagnosed with placenta previa, which caused me to give birth to Austin six weeks early, October 2010 instead of December. As I observed Austin’s behavior develop, like any mother, I prayed for the best; especially since he was considered premature.
