I know; it's been awfully quiet on the Chambers Log for quite some time. We've had an adventurous little while. I started writing this post chronicalling all of the hard stuff, but I want to look forward instead of behind. So, I'll just report it all quickly and get to some pics of Chase, who is 5 months on Wednesday!
sleeping when we can where we can...
In the midst of all the chaos, there was plenty of kindness. My mom helped us immensely when I got strep and Chase first had RSV. Then, when Chase was recovering and I got sick Ryan's mom came to stay and help for a week. We all couldn't have survived without their compassion and care.
Chase is proving to be an engaging and sweet-natured little cuddler. While nursing, he pushes away, makes eye contact with me and gives his biggest grin possible. That, or he begins laughing so hard his little body shakes. There truly is nothing better than those moments of smiling and laughing. All of the hard stuff fades away and my heart is continually renewed by our sweet boy.
