I can't believe it is February already

I find it hard to post very often now. Working full time and caring for 4 kids keeps me very busy. Michael has had some ups and downs over the past few weeks. He is doing better overall, but he still does some very crazy things. He still has moments when he starts crying for no reason at all. He seems to be bonding with us now though. He wants hugs and kisses and he wants to sit close, where as before he didn't care whether we were close to him and he had no interest in affection. He's been home for just over 7 months now. He speaks english extremely well. However, like any 3.5 year old he has certain things that he can't pronounce correctly.

Kevin keeps fighting flu like symptoms off and on and is really struggling with Mommy being gone to work during the day. So it makes for some long evenings when he wants to be held all the time. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE holding him. I think even more than I liked holding the others, but it is hard to cook, clean, or play with the others while constantly holding him. He is also learning to feed himself with a spoon. He is very messy!

Matthew is feeling better and is learning some hard lessons on how disobeying can hurt other people and not just himself. Pray that he takes it serious and learns to obey.

Alisha is struggling with wanting attention all the time from everyone and wanting to be in charge of everyone. She can be very bossy.
