Wednesday (two days ago), Oliver & Lily were here (they're the two children I watch 1-2 times a week). When they're here, Luke generally does pretty well with "sharing his Mom" with other kids (he didn't at first -- but now, we're all good).
This Wednesday, however, didn't go as smooth. For most of the time Oliver & Lily were here, he was clingy to me and very whiny.
Shortly before their mom came to pick them up, I was holding Luke. He felt warm to me. So, I took his temperature. Yep, he had a fever. That would explain his behavior.
Admittedly, I wanted to scream and/or cry. I'm just sooooo tired of winter and sickness in this household this year.
But, nonetheless, I comforted my sick child and took care of him because I am his mother, and I do LOVE him quite a bit. And, truth be told, I did feel bad for him. No parent ever wants to see their kid sick.
That evening, however, after Marc got home, I did get out of the house for a bit -- I desperately needed out. I was gone for maybe one hour, but this is the cuteness that I came home to....
Yep, my two guys, whom again, I love, had fallen asleep together on the floor. Personally, Luke's position didn't look comfortable to me. But, he didn't seem to mind. It was actually S.A.D. to wake him up to put him into bed.
And, for your information, I did take him to the doctor on Thursday. He does have, once again, an ear infection. I guess I shouldn't complain. It's only the second one in his life. It's just that the two he has had have been awfully close together.
I'm really loving seeing aspects of Luke's personality come out.
This week, I noticed a "perfectionist" side of him.
He really likes to build tall, tall towers with blocks. Here are a bunch of photos....
The tower gets started....
And then, sometimes, the tower falls over. Here's where the "perfectionism" comes out. I've never seen Luke get sooooo frustrated as when the towers fall over before he wants them to. I didn't get a good photo of him really upset, but I promise you, after this tower went over, he was mad.
Fortunately, he is persistent. Even though mad, he does start over and DOES NOT give up. That's a "Marc" for you -- Marc doesn't give up easily, at least not as easily as I do.
So, he starts over again....
Notice the lip -- it's sheer "determination."
I think it'll be sooooo interesting someday when he's older -- to see what aspects of his personality I will still see.
And, just for fun -- here's my new favorite "cute photo" of Luke.
Bye for now....
