"My Wyatt time."

Today the longing to hold and care for Wyatt has been extra hard. I don't know why some days are harder than others but that's just how it is.
Wyatt loved his baths. It was something I did for him every night. I don't think I missed a night his entire life. He loved it so much that at 8:30pm each night he would start fussing until he got his bath at 9pm and then he was a happy camper. I then would let him eat as long as he wanted each night. This was "my Wyatt time" each day. He got my full attention because the other kids were in bed. It was his one on one time and he knew it. He loved it ! He loved it when I would rub is little feet with lotion. I always got a smile from him when I did this. He would giggle when I would blow on his chubby little tummy and he hated it when I would put lotion on his face. I miss that time so much I can't even describe it. The last bath I gave him was at 3 in the morning. He was sick and fussy and that was the only thing that I could do that helped calm him down. Little did I know at the time that would be the last time I would get to care for him in this way. Oh how I miss "my Wyatt time!"

Andrea,
I can just see you giving Wyatt his bath. You are such a sweet, loving, amazing mother! You are such a good example to me of a true "Christ-like" mother. Thank you for being so wonderful! Thanks for helping me cherish my children more. I wish there was something I could do for you. I love you!!!!

I'm not even sure how I came upon your blog, but I am so sorry for your loss of your sweet baby! It breaks my heart and makes me hug my babies a little bit harder and appreciate them more! Wyatt has the sweetest face and is adorable!

Andrea, I read your blog daily and you are in my thoughts and prayers everyday. I am so grateful for the tender mercies that Heavenly Father has been giving you. You are such an amazing person and it is even more amazing that you are allowing your faith to let you be real and sincere in your emotions and feelings. I think sometimes we feel like we can't be real --- that is why I especially loved the quotes you shared with us. I get a lump in my throat and my eyes tear up each time I read. I LOVE YOU ANDREA.

what beautiful memories you are sharing with all of us. Those moments are all we have... I am making this vinyl wall quote for my front entry that reads" We don't remember days... we remember the Moments".
Have a great day.

That one was a tough one for me to read. I love that we have some of your Wyatt time on that DVD. His bath sure made him happy! Oh...that is the hardest part to watch on that DVD. You can see in his eyes how much he loves you! Precious!
