It is so hard to believe that this precious little boy is turning two today. Little did I know when he was born two years ago that he would change my life forever. I never dreamed I could love someone as much as I love this precious little boy. The first few hours of his life was scary. We waiting anxiously for the doctors to tell us what was going on and why Lil Man was struggling so hard to breath. We just knew they were going to transfer him to a higher care facility and Lord knows I dreaded the thoughts of having him in one hospital and his Mama in another. As his Mama grew more and more anxious to see her little boy I started to worry that she would go totally ballistic if they came in and told her they were shipping her baby boy to another hospital. When the room to her door opened and a nurse came in pushing a bassinet with Lil Man sleeping peacefully I knew God had answered our prayers. Lil Man had done a complete 180 and was no longer struggling to breath, his O2 sats where staying in the high 90s, and his body temperature was staying right where it should be. He had been cleared to room in with his Mama and it was all God’s work.
Three days later we took home the most precious gift God has ever given to us. It still amazes me how much this little boy consumes my thoughts and decisions. I find myself fearing that someday what we see as a perfect little person is going to change. He’s happy … He’s healthy … He’s loving … He’s forgiving … He’s funny … He’s just perfect. Some days I can’t help but think that it’s all too good to be true. Is it possible that we’ve been so lucky with this little boy. He’s just beautiful!! (Can you tell how proud I am of this little boy??)
