We don't talk about it much, what we went through leading up to Teagan's birth, but it was not an easy time. This isn't an "I tried for so long and God finally blessed me with a baby" post. No, when I first approached my husband about growing our family, he had one simple, yet difficult, request: you have to get better.
For all you feminists and man-haters out there, he wasn't insulting me. He was begging for improvement. I HAD to get better. I HAD to see a doctor. I HAD to quit drinking. I HAD to learn to love myself before I could bring another human into the world. And so our journey started.
I had to take time off social media. I had to eliminate the toxicity and negativity with which I had been surrounding myself. I had to focus on my physical and mental health, my family, and the few healthy relationships I had left.
This baby drives me nuts. My labor was horrendous, my post cesarean healing wasn't fun, his advanced development, while common in babies with older siblings, was something I for which I wasn't prepared. But God, do I love him. He truly completes our family and our lives. I'm thankful to have him and the strength to make and maintain all the positive changes I needed to give him a healthy and happy life. I love my baby boy. ❤️ #teaganroyal #baby #babies #babyboy #babiesofig #babiesofinstagram #lovebetweenmotherandson #thankful #momlife #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #sappypost
