So I’m that person who NEVER EVER thought I would fall off of the face of the earth of blogging after going through all of this. This blog was my world for so long and I never ever thought I would have a child and I never ever thought I would stop blogging if I did. I felt so weird blogging after having Zev but I have been following all of you and am sooooo excited to know that sooo many of you have also come out on the other side. For those of you still trying, please do not EVER give up hope because it can happen! I have been blessed with the most perfect boy and am so excited to say that my cousin, who you might remember was also going through all of this sorrow, finally is about to adopt a baby-to-be within the next month or so!!!! And I just found out that my second cousin, who I don’t really know, just found out that her IVF cycle worked!!! (Please send positive energy her way for a happy, healthy, sticky pregnancy!) Our family, after all of our struggles, has been beyond blessed and I really believe it is because we have all truly persevered toward what we want our futures to be!
Well, I guess I need to give an update. I have never been happier in my life and could never have even imagined being this happy, even when I was in the deepest darkest spaces of infertility thinking about the possibility of having a child. This beautiful boy makes me so incredibly happy 24 hours a day each and every day!!!! Although the path here was quite the struggle, he has been perfect since arriving. We have never been sleep-deprived, his teething of his first two teeth went well, breastfeeding is incredible, and he has been ahead of the game in every respect. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. hubby and I can’t believe he’s here and he is ours. I don’t feel like that feeling is EVER going to go away!!!! I treasure every single moment. His cries make me smile with love because I never thought I would hear my own child cry. My husband feels the same way. I cry often because I am so happy.
I would like to try to update this blog a little more often than I have because it is so difficult to find time to write months worth of posts in one post. I went back to work very, very part-time this semester but it is all coming to an end and I hope I can update more often now.
Zev is 7 MONTHS OLD tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!!! SEVEN!!!!! What?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
Here are some photos from where I left off to document the past bunch of months!
