This little boy

This little guy is teaching me so much.... patience, patience patience. I always thought of myself as a patient person previously but now I have a new definition for that word. We have had some wonderful days. He tests Dan and I a great deal. We still average about 5-7 tantrums a week and they seem more like age appropriate ones. He and Grace don't get along very well much of the time. I hope that will improve in time. Little William has been sick the last 2 days with a high fever. This afternoon I took him to the doctor and Will has strep throat and an ear infection. He's miserable and boy does he want his mommy right now. He's been stuck to me like velcro. I don't mind the velcro part. ;)

(((HUGS))) I sure hope he is feeling better soon. It is so hard for both mommy and him to be sick. Hang in there!!!

Call me if you need to!! If you need my cell number let me know or I can call you.

Hang in there sweet friend. This too will pass. So much that you are all going through right now.

Grace and William will find their way in time. And you are a fabulous mom and your patience and love will bring them together.

Velcro Babys- so nice to be so loved- but so difficult to be so loved!

Big hugs to you! Try and care for yourself too.

I think the sickness explains some of the tantrums, no?

Bennett smacked me today, then said, "I love you, Mom."

If it makes you feel better ;)

Sorry to hear that Will is sick- hope and pray that he feels better soon~ Remember to take care and carve out some time for yourself- my "time for me moments" are in the early am before Maggie wakes up and I can squeeze in time to read, think and pray...and be ready for whatever the day holds.
Keeping you in thought and prayer!

Hang in there my friend. He sure is a handsome little man.
He will adjust and everything will be ok. Eli is like velcro all of the time. He always has been and he's over 3.
You will find that boys do love their mommas and you will be the center of his universe.

I hope he feels better soon. It is encouraging that he wants you when he is feeling bad. He is a cutie in the pictures!

Oh, Gail, I'm so sorry William got strep. I hope he feels better soon.
I agree with Kerry, Grace and Will will be fine in time, life has changed dramatically for both of them.

Gail said...

I hope William is feeling better.
Throat and ear infections hurt, that's for sure. I hope Grace stays clear of it...and You!

I will continue to pray for a smooth transition for everyone, Grace and William included!
