Back in the Saddle

Hellloooooo oooouuuuttttt thheeerrrreeee.......

I'm finally back after the best/hardest experience of my life.

I spent 7 weeks in the hospital on bedrest only to deliver my special little man 6 1/2 weeks early. He was teeny tiny at a measly 2 lbs 13 oz but perfect! So incredibly perfect.

His "hotel" stay consisted of another 4 weeks in the NICU but now he's home.


Home and thriving. Gaining weight like a champ and keeping his mommy up all night while he parties away. I love every single minute of it.

I wouldn't change my experience for the world. It taught me so much.

I still can hardly walk more than a mile because my muscles gave up on me but I still wouldn't change it.

He is a precious little miracle and I am so lucky and blessed to have him.

Welcome to the world Porter Jameson
