My little taste of motherhood

Friday was a great day. I had the chance to babysit a 10 month old little boy who is just about the cutest baby ever. It was awesome. We had him for quite a few hours which meant that Josh and I both had a chance to feed him a bottle and rock him to sleep. I can't remember the last time I was so HAPPY. I still have a perm-a-grin!

But all of this was done at my own risk. When I was asked to babysit I was informed that asickness was going through the family. But he wasn't showing any signs so I agreed. Poor guy, his fever started while we had him.

Yesterday my fever started. I didn't sleep well last night and today I am just plain sick. But I still think it was worth it. For eight hours I got to be with a child. Plus I figure that is a part of motherhood. Your kids get sick and then you get sick. Thank you Shallan for those few hours of bliss.

Hi Savannah! I just wanted to share this potential adoption situation with you. I didn't want to post it on the 2ofus4now website until you got a chance to take a look at it. But when I heard of this little guy, I thought of you and couldn't get you out of my mind. Anyhow, his picture looks adorable and the agency's charge is SO affordable. Take a look and if you don't feel it's the right fit for you, pass it on! He is considered special needs because there is a possibility that he might have fetal alcohol syndrome. But from what I understand, he is no longer showing signs for it, so that might not even be a factor. Anyway, we're praying for you! You guys are too cute, something will work out soon!
