Last week, Finn and Sam went to visit Nana and Papa.  They were gone from Wednesday morning through Sunday afternoon.  While they were gone, Will took the opportunity to rummage through some of their stuff.

Will is starting to take an active interest in books.  He loves to look at them and turn the pages, however, he does not like for me to read to him yet.   I can usually get only half way through the words on the page before Will is ready to move on.  I hope this is not a sign of things to come. 



Here, Will is reading one of Finn's old books - "Go Train Go."  Finn was a huge "Thomas" fan, and this was his favorite "Thomas" book.  I hope that Will starts to like "Thomas."  Sam never really got into "Thomas" - mostly because when Sam was old enough to start liking things - he liked whatever Finn happened to be obsessing over at that time.  For example, Ninja Turtles and WWE. Will, being much younger, may have a change to escape the wide net that Finn casts. 



Will and I also played in the tent.  The tent has three different holes to climb through.  When he would try to crawl out of one of the holes, I would stick my head in the same and scare him.  He laughed and squealed and had the best time. 



Pretending to be an only child wore Will out.  I just love his little curls. 


Here we have Will sitting in Sam's NXT ring.  I was getting ready in my bathroom and heard Will laughing.  I walk in to find Will perched in the ring playing with Sam's wrestlers, naked as a jay bird. Sam would be so mad.

Manhandled

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…
