Hi, my name is Micah Gabriel, but everyone calls me bug-bug around here. I’m just shy of 4 months old right now, so my mommy takes care of this blog for me. She said she wants the world to know more about me and my little heart… You see, I was born with CHD (Congenital Heart Disease). I have 3 specific things going on in there that shouldn’t be happening. But all that explanation is for another post. Right now, I want to tell you about myself and my family, and what you will find on here from now on.
So, like I was saying, I’m Micah. I was born on December 16th 2015, on my due date. Mommy was very exhausted those last few weeks and really wanted me to come along a few days earlier, but it just wasn’t happening. I weighed 7lbs 9.5oz and was 19.25in tall. Seems about average to most people, but compared to my 2 older brothers, I am very small… Talking about brothers, how about I tell you a few things about them too before continuing. First, there is Samuel, he is the oldest. He was born on November 24th 2008 and was 8lbs 2oz and 21in. He is a great big brother to me and always helps mommy when she needs it. Then there is Elijah, he is 3 and a half now, born on October 28th 2012, weighing 8lbs 11oz and 20.5in tall. He is my best buddy. He loves to cuddle me and make me laugh and can’t wait until I start talking and walking.
My mommy created this blog to give CHD awareness to the world out there, and to give updates to my family and friends (that means you!) about my progress and bumps in the road. Oh, she also likes to cook very healthy meals and live in a home without chemicals so you might see her posting about that too, once in a while.
Well, it’s time for me to go have a nap right now, adios peeps! We’ll be back soon I promise and we will discuss my heart condition in further detail in the next post. XOXO
