If this picture doesn't make you smile, then something is wrong with you. (kidding! sort of...) Levi is such a happy boy. Even when he's sick and stuffy he manages to smile. When I'm stressing out and I feel overwhelmed just seeing this baby smile makes it all better...
I developed an umbilical hernia after having Sarah (4 years ago) but I didn't notice until this last pregnancy. My OB recommended surgery but I had decided to wait it out because that would mean I wouldn't be able to carry Levi for 2-4 weeks after surgery. Well in the past I have gotten REALLY bad stomach pains + bloating after eating and then laying down sometimes. To the point that I bend over and cannot walk. I know that this is not normal and it would usually go away after about 2 mins or so but now this pain has been more frequent. It didn't hit me until this weekend that it could be related to my hernia. I have noticed my hernia feel bigger but I didn't think much of it. Well this weekend I got the horrible pain again! I finally decided to make an appointment which is tomorrow to schedule my surgery. I'm not gonna lie, I'm scared. I've never had surgery before. I'm nervous but most of all sad that I won't be able to breastfeed my son or carry him for a couple weeks.
His smile makes me happy. It helps me feel better. His smile brightens my day... even when all I want to do is worry, stress out and cry. I just look at his smile and I can't help but smile back.
