Where have I been?

There is an amazingly good reason why I haven't blogged since February...

I was busy preparing for my first child and then my little miracle baby was born on July 12th, 7 weeks before his due date. Bennett weighed 3 lbs 8 oz when he was born due to being growth restricted. I went in for a follow up growth ultrasound and was admitted to the hospital after a high blood pressure reading because the doctors were worried about preeclampsia and the fact that the baby hadn't grown much over the previous two weeks. Over the course of that evening, the baby's heart rate was dropping every half hour and recovering quickly until 5 am when it dropped to 50 beats per minute and stayed there despite our efforts to move me every which way. They did a c-section at 5:29 am and we were parents! Bennett spent 4 weeks in the NICU where he grew to 4 lbs 10 oz and we brought him home on August 10th.

Since that day, we have getting to know our little guy (who isn't so little anymore). I plan to get back into blogging slowly as I learn how balance life as a mommy. So, that's what I did all summer. How was your summer?
