This is a picture of me and my eldest son Isaiah in 1996. I can't believe he was ever this tiny because now he is taller than me and practically has a "man voice." And he's going to be 13 years old in July! But, I remember this day like it was yesterday! He was one month premature due to a placenta previa. It all happened so fast, and I think that moment was just so surreal to me. When you are pregnant with your first child, you don't even think that there may be any complications at all. I just thank God that he pulled through! He had to stay in the NICU for a week because on top of the antibiotics he was getting, he ended up with jaundice. I tell ya though...there is no way to describe delivering a baby and going home empty handed. I mean, I knew he was going to be okay and come home eventually, but it was just weird to go out and people not know that I just had a baby. Hard to explain, but I'm sure you know what I mean.
This was the day after I gave birth. I was so anxious to see him. People were tripping out that I was walking back and forth from my room to the NICU to see him! He was 6lbs and 3oz!
