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,
Mommy's Little Man
