All my heart -

My dearest baby b,

Mommy has taken so long to update her blog because you, sir, are a lot of work!  I waited so long for you to be here.  I tried SO hard for you to have a perfect little life.  It paid off.  You are perfect!  PERFECT.

On July 23rd, we left our home at 4:30 am to head to the hospital for your scheduled birth. We checked in (on the wrong floor - frazzled!) and proceeded to fill out mountains of paperwork.  Mommy had no idea she was actually in labor when we got there.  Contractions off the charts!  By 6:45, I was wheeled to the OR with the best team possible to welcome you, sweet baby, into the world.

Little did we know, you had decided to take up a permanent residence in my rib cage.  With the help of a couple of nurses and one doctor and one resident, you made your appearance.  You were the most beautiful sight to see.  With a blood sugar of 65 mg/dl!  We couldn't ask for more, baby bear.

Our days have been nothing short of wonderful from then on.  You are a strong boy.  Starting at nine pounds,  you are now above average in strength, height, and weight.  You are mommy's little man.  Your personality is absolutely a perfect mix of mommy and daddy.  We are setting our goal at raising the most sarcastic little baby ever.

Mommy is now back at work, but takes a baby b break often to stare at your pictures and smile.  I smile because I never knew how much I could love you.  My eyes fill with tears as I think about how I wasn't sure I would ever have you and now you are here and I do not want to let you go.  Daddy said he really feels sorry for you as you grow older because your mommy is obsessed.

As we are nearing five months old, I cherish every day I spend with you.  I am learning to now care for my type 1 diabetes and you.  Sometimes it gets a little hard.  Sometimes diabetes takes a distant back seat.  However, I will keep up the hard work so that I can live a long life with you by my side.

With all of the love in my heart,
