alot of reading and singing to him, M makes sure he has his fire-passer (even if he doesn't want it). M even put him to sleep the other evening. I was making dinner, W was fussy and sitting in his chair, M was attentively bouncing him so gently and making sure the fire-passer stayed in his mouth and what do you know, he fell asleep - for 20 minutes! Could have been longer if he weren't in the middle of dinner preps and all the dishes and shouting but WOW! I had been told that I would see this sweet side of the older siblings but it was still a surprise at how gentle, helpful and in tune to W they all are.
