Precious in His sight....
I took Blake to his 4 month appointment today. He is weighing 15pounds and 3oz. He is about 24 1/2 inches long.
Something happened this past weekend where I saw a "friend" of the family from church. She mentioned how she had recently seen Blake and added a comment in there that took me back by surprise...she said "Blake has a big head" Wow...what do you say in response to that? So I said..."I like your hair"
Anyways, at the doctor today, I asked the doctor about Blake's head...she didn't mention it to me, but I asked her about it. She looked it over, measured it for the second time and suggested that maybe Jason and I would want to take him to a specialist. Blake has a flat head in the back and one way to correct it is by wearing a helmet for a couple weeks or months.
My heart broke when I thought of my little boy having to wear a helmet at such a young age...but most of all, when I thought of the comment that the adult made to me about Blake's head...that broke my heart...and to think that if an adult would say something about his head, then peers could also make fun of him too.
Needless to say, as much as I don't want my son to have to wear a helmet I know it's what will help him down the road.
Thank goodness that Blake is precious in not only my eyes, but he is so precious is Jesus' eyes.
