In 6 hours my baby boy will be turning 5. This marks the day he was born and yet at the same time the day i came so close to dying. So while i'm overjoyed at his birthday celebration i'm also downing xanax like there's no tomorrow for the stress the memories of that day cause me. So in order to help myself relax i'm going through all the happy pictures since then. Now you all get them too :)

Here's the picture hubs took of baby D while i was in the ICU, for only 34wks he was HUGE :) probably the best news of that day.

Here he is a week later when they finally let us go home.

Here he is about 4 months old

And then he grew :)

Now here's my big boy

I just got the boys up and went into the bathroom. I overheard my older boy *6yrs* singing the happy birthday song to D and then he said "I sang you happy birthday so you know I love you"

*sniffle, cry* Kids can be so freaking sweet sometimes.

OK this brought tears to my eyes.  Happy birthday to your beautiful boy and hugs for you.

 He's adorable!  And... you are still here, and stronger for your trials.  You're a survivor :)
