I realized yesterday that not only does Bede tolerate our singing, he actually likes it. A far cry from the boy who used to scream and put his hand over our mouths. We stopped giving him corn a month ago and I don’t know if it’s connected but he is much less irritable since. I don’t care to find out by testing it! We’re not avoiding all corn anything, just actual corn flour and corn meal. I get a terrible stomachache when I eat corn so we decided to give it a whirl after noticing his mood was horrible on Saturday afternoons – after a 4 bowls of corn based breakfast cereal.
Gloria has three new signs: milk, drink and more. She says mama, dada and points to other things when asked where they are. She has figured out how to push dining chairs over to a low alcove so she can then climb on the chair and reach a shelf. Sigh. It begins.
Abby and Faith will be taking acting and dance classes this spring. And maybe art.

Gilbert is why? how come?
And now I am needed again!
