A few weeks ago after dinner I noticed Hosea seemed to be eating something...but he was no longer at the table and had been wandering around the house. I asked him what was in his mouth, and he directed me to my room, to the bedspread where there are tiny strawberries on a part of it, and he "picked" another one of them and fed it to me! Melted my heart!!
The kids love jumping on it and building with it! Our indoor jungle gym.
"Greta today on the walk home from school: "What's OUR other language?" (she has many friends who speak Mandarin or Cantonese), "Ummmm, we don't have one...we only speak English. Would you like to learn some form of Chinese?" (I mean, it would be sooooo useful!)...to this Greta paused and then asked, 'Would that make my hair turn black?' "
When Hosea had it, a few nights prior, he woke up throwing up in his bed I think 3 separate times. Each time he didn't cry, and followed me to the bathroom and the closet so I could clean him up or change his bed. He was really tough!
Therese unfortunately started throwing up while at her friend's house! And then once I got her home she threw up all over our hallway rug and then made it to the bathroom the rest of the time. She too was super tough, all business, no crying, no complaining.
Greta started throwing up that same night, in the middle of the night. First she was crying and complaining and miserable!!! Then it started.....and went on and on through the next day.
I was the next victim, the next night, of course. Glad that's over with!!!!!
Hosea and all his words! He is talking, in his own way, a lot these days.
Last night he learned how to say "Jesus"! It's adorable. And then today he learned "wall" and went all over the house saying "wall" and pointing to the walls!
