Happy due date to my Charlie bear. I was supposed to be meeting you and Sam today yet I've been blessed with your presence for the past 3 months. As it turns out I actually needed you just as much as you needed me. It's been a long and bumpy road to get here and you amaze me with your resilience everyday.
You are up to 6lbs 13oz now and love to eat, sleep and coo at everyone. You gave us the best present yesterday in learning that the open PDA valve in your heart has closed on its own and will not require surgery. This will also be a gateway into weaning off your oxygen over the next few weeks and we are so happy for you to soon be "cord free"!
I believe Sam is watching over us and is happy to see your continued progress. I'm proud to be your mom and in only 3 months you have taught me a lifetime of lessons about strength, beauty and gratitude. To me you are and will always be 100% perfect.
