5 Weeks PP 2nd Baby (Shannon)

Original entry here.

i had liam april 10 via cesarean at 11:53, 7 lbs 15 oz, 19 in. he is very healthy, although i am still so scared to lose him. it has been a very emotional month…the 1 year anniversary since connor passed was may 1st. i miss him so much, he would have loved his little brother! i know he is in heaven watching over us and making his baby brother smile! liam is amazing and i love him just as i love connor. i will be posting my body at another time…but that is not what matters right now, it gave me the 2 greatest boys ever!

    you have two very beautiful children! you are a strong strong woman! your positive outlook on life should put everyone to shame who thinks they have a hard one! i look up to you. Congratulations on the birth of your new son! my son was born 3 days before liam! (just thought i’d add that in there)

    I am so happy for you! I remember your original post, and when I read it I started crying. Liam now has a special angel looking out for him and you have a beautiful new son. Congrats!

    Puts all of our whining in perspective. What a beautiful person you are… Your boy are both little angels. I went and hugged my son for a full 5 minutes after I read your post.

    Thank you all for your comments. Liam is going to be 2 months old tomorrow! He is doing great…gaining like crazy (I am breast feeding), and smiles all the time, just like his big brother! I have a lot of hard moments, but I feel so blessed to have had both of my boys. I miss Connor, and always will, but I would rather have had 19 months with him than have never met him at all (even though I would not know the pain of losing a child)…he was my greatest accomplishment! I was worried that I would not be able to love another child as much as Connor…but I guess mothers really do love all of their children the same!

    Congratulations on the birth of your second precious boy. Your boy’s are so incredibly blessed to have a Mother as unconditionally loving and wonderful as you. God must have placed these very special gifts in your womb becuase he knew how well you would care for them. You are a beautiful person and I hope God blesses you abundantly! One day you will ALL be reunited!

    You are amazing. I am so glad your little one is home and that you guys are doing so well. He is so cute! You have a beautiful smile, and what a spirit!

    Ive read your original post and I’m so happy you updated! I just want to let you know that you are so incredibly beautiful, and it’s a serene beauty that comes from within your soul and shines outward. I can truly say that I don’t think Ive ever seen someone as beautiful as you. Connor and Liam are so lucky to have you and I just know that little Connor is looking down from heaven with his great big beautiful smile and he is so proud to have you as his Mommy.

    I pray for many blessings and much happiness for you and your family!

    Sorry about the loss of Connor. Congratulations on a healthy baby boy. I Love the name Liam. If we would’ve had a son, that would have been his name.

    just saw your first post here, your a great mama, your babies look happy, im the mom of a child who to this day still endures a lot of time in a hospital, i couldnt imagine losing her, even though she has given me many scares, you’re right about the tummy tuck thing, good for you, your a brave and strong woman, and your husband seems like a wonderful father as well, im sorry for your loss, he is a beautiful little boy, you never see how beatiful imperfections can be till they are obvious in your own children!

  • Tara Thursday, June 11, 2009, 6:22 pm

    I remember your story from your previous post, and I’m so happy that you posted again with your second beautiful son! I’m sure Connor is one proud big brother looking out for little Liam! Congrats Mommy!

  • E Thursday, June 11, 2009, 8:13 pm

    You are a wonderful and beautiful person. Ive read your previous post and I have to tell you that it made me cry and absolutely put me to shame for ever feeling bad about my post partum body. Your attitude takes my breath away. I wish that I had more people like you in my life. I cant even put into words how amazing you are. Stay just the way you are and I hope that God bring you nothing but love joy and happiness
