yesterday the boys woke up and asked if they could make welcome signs for matthew. they insisted on taping them to the brick even though i warned they might fall down.
they defied gravity and stayed up with cheap scotch tape
today we have had a lot of activity. we started with cuddling and watching a little of kung fu panda. i then served breakfast hesitantly. we had been warned about matthew's finicky eating and trouble with digestion and bowel movements. he surely laughed in the face of that file! he ate a yogurt with fresh fruit and wheat germ mixed in, two tangerines, and two pieces of wheat toast with organic peanut butter slathered on. wow!
after breakfast we have been playing candyland, reading books, coloring with watercolor pencils, and creating with playdough. of course there have been many "battles" and "adventures" in between each activity. matthew added some new weapons to our arsenal and they just have to be used. so far it's been a great day. matthew slept through the night without issue and everyone is getting along famously.
