Well, I think you might know what that means (being fussy). Yes, I we are fighting ANOTHER infection. I had no idea how important our skin was, until I had a child that has open wounds all over his body. He is learning to like his daily bleach bath (2 gallons of water to 1 tsp. of bleach). It is like swimming in a pool, I have been told. We have this yellow inflatable ducky tub, his beak quacks, and I have an idea that Jameson is going to hate to hear "What does the ducky say!!!?" He doesn't mind the bath, he just hates having his bandages off. I was so scared of giving him a bath at first. I thought that I would hurt him..... so I called Sarah and she came over and gave him his first bath. (Thanks alot Sarah) I have gotten a little more confident with putting him in the bath but it still freaks me out. Please pray that the infection will heal and that he will not need to go to the hospital.
Jameson is becoming more aware of the things around him. When I am changing his bandages he will try to move my hand with his foot or fight me when I need to straighten his arm. He is so strong, both physically and strong-willed. I guess his strength is what has helped him through the first 10 weeks of his life. Can you believe he is 10 weeks old? Some days it feels like he has been around for an eternity, other days, it is just like yesterday that I was pregnant.
We did not go to church today, but we had church at home. The subject of faith came up. Zachary asked the question, "What is faith?". Todd told him that faith is believing and trusting in God even when we don't see Him. WOW! Can you imagine if a 5 year old can understand what faith is? I pray that our baby Jameson will teach our 5 and 7 year old boys (as well as myself) what faith is. I have such a faith in Jesus for saving me, but do I truly have the faith that He will heal my baby? Yes I do. Why? because He is faithful to do immeasurable more than I can ask or think!!!!! I love a faithful God who loves me and loves hearing me call out to Him. He loves that Jameson's life is teaching me and Todd and the boys who He is and how He works out everything for His good.
