Hey babes! I cannot believe that it has been one year with Kru in our lives. He is our sweet rainbow baby, after experiencing an ectopic pregnancy and having one of my tubes removed, I never thought I would be able to have another baby. This year has been nothing short of amazing adding him in our lives. It has been quite the year with the world being in a pandemic, working full time, and adding this sweet boy to our family. I sometimes catch myself looking back on my pregnancy which was tough and also delivering a baby in the midst of a pandemic. Us moms are complete SUPER HEROS. We make it happen when we really do not know how we will.

With having a baby in the middle of a pandemic brings a lot of uncertainty. I had to go to every doctor appointment alone, which was terrifying because I still had some fear left in me from experiencing our loss back in 2019. Only my husband was allowed in the delivery room when we had Kru and I could not have any visitors while in the hospital. To make it more challenging Kru was in the NICU the entire time we were in the hospital, with that only ONE of us could visit him at a time. Most of the time I was the one visiting him because I had to feed him every 2 hours. There were a few times I allowed Kru to be fed with a bottle so that Effram could also spend time with him. It was overwhelming and stressful because 2 hours after delivering him I was having to walk across the hospital to the NICU because I could only go alone so no one could wheel me down there. We were relieved when we were all released from the hospital to say the least.

This little boy is exactly what who we needed added to our family, God knew what he was doing, and his timing is always on point. He is the sweetest, silliest, and chill baby I have ever met. Don’t get me wrong he does go 0-100 really quick when he is hungry or wants to be held but out and about he is so calm and laid back.
I will forever be grateful and thankful for this sweet little boy. He truly did come at a time that we all needed him most. I cannot believe this year has flown by so fast. I am trying my best to be more present and soak up every minute of this stage because it really did fly by with Mia.
