Last Day at Gran's House

It was our last day together, I knew I was going to miss having the boys here, but we were all excited in anticipation of mom and dad coming  home!

After I dropped Finn and Sam off at school James called and said he had to have babysitter so Will had someone to play with for the morning. I don't have many pics because, well, I only have two hands and every time I picked up the phone to take a picture  both boys tried to get it from me.
We played with cars, laptops, and stuffed animals. Cade was wonderful with little Will! He wanted to share everything he played with, he would hug Will when he thought he should and wanted to help him with everything. It was so sweet! Soon it was time for lunch, Will sat in the highchair and at everything I gave him. Cade played with Kate and Mickey while having bites of fruit and rice when he wanted one.

Afterwards both boys were ready for a nap, but I knew James was on his way to pick up Cade so I needed to stall two tired fussy boys. There was really only one option, bring out the vacuum cleaner! They both just Love the vacuum! It worked like a dream and my floors were clean

After Cade and James left I put Will down for a nap. He slept a long time and when he woke up he played with his love, I was able to get a picture before he saw me, it was adorable!

After we left school we headed to get haircuts . We stopped for pictures then went right in because we had to get to swim class.  Finn and Sam were happy to find that Giggles now has video games that they played while getting haircuts!

After we finished haircuts we headed over to swim class for Sam.  We were really early so I went in the swimshop to ask about classed for Will and Cade. I decided to let the boys play in the floor because little Will had been sitting a long time and was getting restless. He was having so much fun with his brothers, evidently too much fun, the lady that worked there reprimanded us so we left as soon as we could.

I had such fun with the boys and I am so thankful to have had them all week! They are all just my heart! What Great Blessings!

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…
