It's been week since I've had time to update! We've been busy with extra kids, therapy, chiropractor and other things!
My biggest challenge is a continuing one. Dawson has been throwing tantrums sometimes when we get in the van. He got in the driver's seat, put my gps on the dash and said he was going to see Tyler. Then continued on about it. I took him out and talked to him a bit, but he wasn't in the mood to be reasoned with or told where Tyler is. He just wants to see his brother again. It's so hard seeing these outbursts. It's hard enough for me to deal with myself, let alone trying to get Dawson to understand.
We had Megan and Bali here a few days in a row now and babysat some too. It will be exciting when she can get an affordable apartment that doesn't smell strongly of drugs.
Bali playing on the air mattress. The kids thought it was great and loved flopping onto it.
Gabriel is getting faster at walking and now walks up with his arms stretched out and his tickly fingers going as he walks toward me. So cute! He learned that from Buddy I think. It was so hard bringing him home today. I had the girls get their shoes on and went to find Buddy. He was in the playroom, sitting across from Gabriel nicely playing with a toy together. They looked so sweet! He was bummed to leave his little buddy behind. His newest word is "uh oh". He's been eating anything I put on his plate. I'm still not used to having a child who is willing to eat anything!
I found this and thought I'd share it. Another list to help friends get a glimpse of what is going on in our head.
