When morning came it was me and then later in the day, daddy came down with a sore throat and cough. Miraculously the kids have improved well enough that I think I'll take them outside tomorrow, well later today. No one has gotten up screaming since they went down.
She doesn't have a name yet but when I asked Christopher what her name was he said "Chris"
Last night, Tuesday night, I took Christopher to Walmart to get some trick or treat pails. No his outfit is not completed or even started for that matter but atleast he has a pail and so does Alyssa. I also bought Alyssa her first doll.
It was hard for me since I never played with the things myself. Instead I let my son pick one out. Although I think she could have been a bit cuter, she is brown. I have to take what I can get. I'll get a bunch of different colour ones but I wanted to start off somewhere. Christopher got the last one for us. The shelves were empty.
As you can see he really took to the thing. I kept reminding him that he can take care of the baby tonight but tomorrow he has to give her back to Alyssa. He said okay but I know it will be a different story come tomorrow.
Yes it even had it's own pacifier which he constantly kept putting in and taking out of it's mouth. He was so gentle with the doll and he took her to bed with him. He made her dance and all. He told me she was tired and that it was bed time. He covered her with his blanket and made me give her a hug and kiss. He's such a gentle boy when he wants to be. I'm thinking this may help him to be a little more gentle with Alyssa and not push her so hard or try to sit on her. I told him if he is rough with the baby, the baby will get hurt and start to cry. Just like your baby sister Alyssa.
He even got the wipes and wiped her. That's what he is doing in this photo. He told me she had, "poop in her pants" and those were his exact words.
I had read somewhere that it was healthy for boys to have a dolls too, so I will look for a boy doll for him so that he will give this one up easily. I hope.
