Gran's - Day 3

Today started off great! I am ready to take these boys to raise! They are such loves! 
Finn got in bed with me earlier than usual last night. I think he got up to go potty and just decided to hop in my bed! He did tell me that he checked on Will before he got in the bed. He is such a sweet brother. When I got up I told Finn to continue to sleep so he did. He has  had such a bad cold and I have even given him allergy  medicine for a few nights,  his teacher even commented on how  much better he was today.

I had everything ready when everyone woke up at 6. Little Will is happy to greet a new day! 
I went to Walmart  yesterday to get something for Finn to play with during recess  since his Dr.  wants him to Not Play! I got him a hand held video game.  But,  I knew Little Sam would be heartbroken if I  didn't get something  for him so I got him a PJ mask car. I told the if they got ready early I would be able to give them their surprises. Of course they did and just let me say that they were so happy with their gifts! Sam insisted that I take a picture and send it to mom and dad!

Will took a big nap when we got home from dropping the boys off. He slept so long I got concerned! After 2 hours I really was nervous so I went up on the balcony a tried to zoom in with my camera to make sure that he was breathing.  That didn't work so I ended up just tip toeing next to his bed to make sure he was alright!
After lunch we headed over to visit Aunt Nellie. He was as happy as could be to see her and she loved being with him! I had sit him on the bed for a few minutes and he noticed that she had a little stuffed animal! She wanted me to let him play with it so I did, he loved it!

Finn and Sam give Will absolutely NO personal space whatsoever.  They are always in face yelling and grabbing on him.  For a few minutes he will tolerate it.

Then he gets mad and starts swinging those arms.  I have warned both boys that they deserve whatever Will dishes out. 

Last Thursday was Finn's field day.  He wasn't too excited about it because he didn't get to participate at all.  He was even more upset by the fact that he only came home with a "participants" ribbon.  I guess Finn expected to get a ribbon for "Best Score Keeper."

Surprise sickness

When I picked Will up from daycare yesterday, I was informed that several babies had gone home throwing up.  Thirty minutes later - Will threw up too - in the car! It was so gross and so smelly.  The boys were really upset. For a minute, I thought they would throw up from the smell.  Luckily, we were on our way to the dentist so they quickly forgot about Will's vomit and started panicking about the dentist.  You see, I had kept this little tidbit from them until right before time to go.  This spared me days of whining.

Oh, and Will just started eating carrots.  That is why he is orange. 
When he got to the dentist's office I took Will in to change him.  When I pulled his only spare outfit out of the diaper bag I notice that the "do not steal me" hard, plastic tag was still attached.  Perfect.  I decided that he would just wear nothing.  So he sat in my lap, wearing nothing but his diaper all while throwing up into a baby blanket.  It was a make it work moment.  And o…

Sleep Training

Since he came home from the hospital, Will has slept right next to me.  For the first few weeks it was on the air mattress. Then we moved to the couch. Then we moved to a twin mattress in the floor of Will's room.  It didn't take long until we permanently took up residence in the marital bed - thus effectively evicting Michael.

We NEVER let Finn or Sam sleep with us - Will was different story.  He was a bit needier that Finn or Sam.  We were able to put both boys in their own crib at around 6 weeks and while they whimpered a bit - we were both able to self soothe enough to go to sleep.  Will hated his crib from the word go.  Whenever we put him in it he would scream until we finally came to rescue him (his words - not mine).  The times we tried, he would scream for well over an hour without tiring.  It was exhausting. So, we let him win.  This is how he wound up sleeping in our bed for six months.

Now, I am not complaining.  I LOVED having Will next to me in bed.  We both sle…
