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!"
