Our story through cell phone pics: warning! photo overload and a health update

From 2.5 months preggo to a 3.5 month old baby boy.
I was looking through these old cell phone pics today and I realized how they tell a story. Things I've shared with all of you and things I kept inside. From being thisclose to losing my baby early on in the pregnancy to a healthy growing belly. From date nights to delivery day. From bouncing baby boy to a sick child in my arms. Those were the months that changed who I am forever.
We've had some hard times but mostly great times. We cried as our hearts pained for the little person who was now in the world who was suffering from dehydration, drastic weight loss and what we at one point believed to be a derformity with his left eye (it's all better now!). But at the same time we smiled and laughed harder for bigger and better reasons.
Motherhood. It's not always butterflies and rainbows but it's a journey that is like no other. A love that knocks you off your feet and gives you a strength that you may have not known existed so that you can pick yourself up and move forward.
It's the best story and it's no where near over.

These are pretty much all happy pictures. Maybe one day I can bring myself to show the photos of when he wasn't doing so well but right now, it's more than my heart can handle.
Happy Friday Everyone!

Update: Some have asked if everything is okay with my health since I mentioned I was going to see a neurologist. The answer is yes and no. It could be worst, way worst. At the same time not having all of the answers is really weighing on me. In short, I started fainting a few months back. A lot. We found out that a tumor that I once had now grew back. The chain reaction of what the tumor is doing is causing other symptoms and issues. That's all I can say without completely breaking down. But I'm ok. Just know that when I am absent from the blog it's because I'm dealing with something that needs my attention and energy.
