We’ve had a lot of questions about how the boys are doing….the answer is”GREAT!!!!” Really we couldn’t ask for them to adjust any better. We were pretty concerned about our youngest…considering the day they met he did nothing but yell at her (and anyone holding her). He is now crazy about the “baby”. Yesterday was my first day alone with all four. I didn’t want to just “survive” the day and since last week life was on hold for the boys – I gave myself two goals:
1. Get a picture of her with each of her brothers
2. Help the boys make their ‘Indiana Jones Lego Jungle’ (AKA plant wheat grass for them to hide lego men in)
Here she is with each of her brothers:
E loves to touch her hair and bring her blankets (yes, that is a scab on his nose…facial wounds are common around here)
H is our most affectionate kid. He is the most adoring of her and asks throughout the day where she is and if he can hold her.
Once in his arms he kisses her over and over.
C isn’t too interested in her when she is asleep, but once her eyes open he is trying to entertain her or hold her hand. He’s pretty proud of her…
Remember my Herb Garden…well evidently you need to actually water plants for them to stay alive. Since my herbs are all now of the dried variety I decided to reuse the pots. The boys have been wanting a “jungle” for their Indiana Jones Lego men (yes, they do actually look like Harrison Ford and Sean Connery) to play in. I figured wheatgrass would be durable and easy, so we are going to try it out. The boys each planted a pot and I planted some in a larger container.
Since my container didn’t have drainage holes, I filled the bottom with charcoal, then the dirt, then the seeds…
Here it is after the seeds are added and paper towels on top (I planted according to the directions on the seed bag)
Now they will all sit inside and begin growing. I’ll be sure to post pics of Indiana Jones in his jungle…I know you all are so anxious to see those!
