Just a little over a year ago, I gave birth to our son, and our world changed forever. We prayed for him and God took us on a journey that changed our lives before we finally found out that Chandler was on his way. I think this has made me realize even more how precious and special he is.I love every minute I spend with him, and I love how he knows just what to do to melt my heart. He certainly has me wrapped around his little finger!
Most of the time I feel pretty confident with the mothering skills I have learned, even though I know there are some people who might not agree with everything I do. I did have a good example, after all, and it's nice that most of my friends are moms, too. However, the last couple of days while Chandler has been sick, I have felt helpless.
He cries my name and reaches for me, I keep him hydrated and fed, I hold him close, and I give him Tylenol when I can to help ease some of the aches and pains, but it still doesn't work sometimes. He's so pitiful, and my heart goes out to him, but there is nothing I can really do but pray. So, that is what I am going to do, because on my own, I am always helpless.
