I’m racking my brain trying to figure out what to write. I’d like to post a little more often than I have been, but frankly, I’m too tired to come up with anything deep right now. My son Christian still wakes up about 2-4 times a night, and despite all the advice we get (mostly from people that have read the book Babywise) I’m convinced there’s not a lot we can do about it. His doctor told us that if he’s not sleeping through the night by now (around 15 months) he probably won’t sleep through the night till he’s 3 or 4. . So we’ve got about another year and a half to two years to go. Hurray! Christian also has food sensory issues, which makes eating really difficult for him. He’s in therapy every week for that.
Isaac’s also doing well. Still a hand full, but he’s at that age where every new word or phrase he learns delights us. His favorite words are “Thank you” “You’re welcome” “eat” and “yucky” Rhiannon and I also heard him say “he’s sleeping” today when Christian was asleep in his car seat. Isaac’s new favorite hobby is blowing spit in my face with his tongue…and laughing hysterically. It’s really annoying, but also kind of cute. Been watching a video series called Circle of Security. It’s about being attentive to your children. It’s made me want to pay attention to my kids as much as possible. Probably not a bad idea.
Well, that’s all for now.
Off to the Middle East this week….
Some time after I get back, I want to write a review of Miroslav Volf’s Allah: A Christian Response and Mark Braverman’s Fatal Embrace. Two very important books in the field of Muslim/Christian/Jewish relations, definitely worth your time and mine.
