Overall Rating for Baby Feet Silver Charm Necklace
The story of our "Baby Feet Silver Charm Necklace":
There's nothing quite like meeting your child for the first time. You hold the tiny body in your arms, you try to look into his eyes, you count the fingers, you count the toes. Oh my! Those cute, teeny toes! It is hard to believe that one day, these tiny feet will be running.
In a blink of an eye, everything changes. It is humbling and empowering at the same time, knowing that this little life is in your hands. It felt like I can do anything. Everytime I think about it, I tear up.
However, I feel that that moment is very short. In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, it is sometimes easy for me to forget that magnificent feeling. Instead, I get drowned in the different worries that all parents know about.
About two weeks after Marvin's birth, I became overwhelmed with my new responsibilities as a mother. That superpower that I felt right after he was born just dissipated. Doubt crept in my mind, "Can I do this?"
One day, I voiced my anxiety to my husband. He listened patiently and reassured me that he his complete faith that I will be a great Mama. I told him that I believed him and I told him about how powerful I felt right after our child?s birth. The next evening, he came home with a small box.
Inside was a dainty silver chain. The kind that goes well with almost anything a woman can wear. Looped into it was a round charm, and a colored stone. My husband put it around my neck. Upon closer look, I saw that it was engraved with small baby feet. Below it was Marvin?s name. I asked my husband about the colored stone and he explained that it was a birthstone representing the month Marvin was born.
Looking at those small feet, I was taken back to that fleeting moment when I first held my son in my arms. I remembered how strong I felt and how deeply I fell in love. I thanked my husband and gave him a deep kiss.
Since then, everytime I felt like things were becoming a little too tough for me, I hold the necklace in my hand. I stare at the tiny feet and I go back to that day when I counted Marvin's toes.
