It's been a very eventful few weeks and I wanted to share so I don't forget.
Jackson said a self-initiated "Thank you for playing cards with me," yesterday. Progress!
Speaking of cards, he learned how to play "War" in kindergarten and we've been playing; I never thought the day would come when I could play cards with my kids, I'm so excited! And he's doing such a good job taking turns, stopping the game to eat dinner, sleep, etc (that game drags on and on, people), and handling when I "win" his cards. Way to go, buddy!
The kids have been sleeping in their own beds until 5 a.m., which is a blessing, but between 5-6 a.m. Savannah whines and cries over random things...
--"Put your hand on me!"
--"Snuggle me harder!"
--"My covers are messed up!"
--"Where's my blankie?"
--"Where's my babie?"
--"I want breakfast!"
Finally, at 6a.m. when my alarm goes off, she sits straight up in bed and is completely happy, saying, "Breakfast time!" And then I laugh at her. But not before then; before 6 a.m. I'm pretty annoyed, ha!
This morning, JW asked her to rub his back as a way to distract her from her crying, and she said, "I can't because there are tears on them!" Haha.
