No big news on the Brady front today. He had blood drawn, but I didn't get a call about the results. I will call in the morning just to make sure things are okay. His appetite is back to normal (cookies and all!) He is very clingy and whiny this week and I'm not sure what is up. I'm trying to find a balance between spoiling him rotten because of how sorry I feel and making sure he doesn't turn into a total brat because of all the extra attention:)
We are dealing with all sorts of new behavior at our house. The terrible 2's are fast approaching, bringing with them tantrums, hitting, crying, and overall disobedience. With all of the negatives though, come so many positives. They are saying new things constantly. They understand everything, I mean everything. Yesterday as I finished flushing Brady's Broviac, Cara yelled from other room, "Tubies all done, Hooray!" We are trying to affectionately call the Broviac, Brady's tubies. Maybe it is the fear of losing Brady, but these days I'm just loving my four sweeties more and more every day. One of my favorite things is to see Eli, Cara, and Brady watching out the window when I'm leaving to go somewhere in the van. Seeing their sweet little faces pushed up against the glass is so precious. Once in a while I get a wave or a kiss blown my way. I LOVE this part of being a mommy so much. I love seeing them from a distance, somehow I can just soak in all of their "wonderfulness" by looking at them through that window! Allie continues to be the sweetest baby I've ever seen. Her nickname in our house is Dreambaby! I wanted to give you all a smile tonight and share some pictures of my wonderful crew. From top to bottom are Eli, Cara, Brady (a little chubbier than usual---that is a pic from the hospital when he was on steroids), and Allison. Edited: I just found two great pictures that show my crew looking out the window, both from inside and outside.
