But I love it still...there were approximately 6 tantrums today each getting longer. I'm very glad I'm a veteran mother or I might turn and run but I distinctly remember what this is like and know it gets better. Plus, I know that all of this means that he knows we'll be around regardless. he doesn't just need to be cute and funny all the time, he can just be Tariku and we'll still love him. So, it sounds funny, but I'm glad we're at this stage in our relationship. I still get such a big kick out of the kid.
It was all Tariku all the time today. Side from the tantrums, we had an enjoyable day. He's starting to learn Zach and I have an amazing ability to hang out while he works things out so we'll win every time. Tariku still eats like it's going out of style and drinks enough to go pee every 10 or so minutes. No accidents yet so that's nice.
perhaps the biggest shock of the night came when we attempted a bath. The nannies told us he didn't care one way or another whether he had a bath but we witnessed something different altogether. HE HATES THEM WITH A HOT, HOT HATRED. He took one look at it and screamed and didn't stop until 40 minutes later. Not sure how that worked out but if the kid would learn to wipe better we wouldn't have had to run into it yet. :) Either way, not a big deal but perhaps a better heads up would've enabled me to strap on a bigger pair and prepare myself.
Anyway, loving this whole thing I'm not going to lie. Talked to the kids tonight and Tariku had a hoot of a time talking to his "cchee cchee" (TT) and Dailah as well as both grandmas. I'm sooo wanting to be home and have all three of my kiddos in my arms, I miss them so much! We leave in just 24 hours so that's very exciting.
Not sure if I'll get to post tomorrow or not but we'll post when we're at Minnesota as we have a 4 hour layover. So until then pray for our safe travels home! Love to all!
