Who was it that started that phew/whew thing? I cant remember...lol. Anyways..it went pretty well as far as these type visits go. No outlandish outbursts from daughter in law but I could tell Jamie had warned her about several things. He told her that when she saw Mandy that she was NOT to give any advice that was not specifically asked for. LOL. Well his exact words were "dont go over and tell Mandy how to raise her baby, thats their kid. Dont butt in." LOL. Jamie did tease Cory and asked him how it felt not to have to send one back on Mondays...lol. So this time the adults were actually better behaved. Now Hailie..oh my gosh...talk about a pain. She was in rare form. She was clingy and demanding. Like I said in the other thread, she is claiming she cant eat anything but I later found out that her mother has gotten her to eat a few things over this past week like a few chicken nuggets and some french fries. Hmmm. Okay, so its not that she cant eat, its that she is just playing everyone for attention. She wants everyone to just give her yogurt and ice cream and milkshakes. Well okay, so would I if I was her age. And cry if she doesnt get her way? Ugh. I am so done with that junk. Mikey doesnt speak at all. Well..okay...I heard about three or four sounds that could be words. He said something that I am assuming is spongebob. We think he said Papa and uhh for everything else. Now he is 2 and a half years old and should be speaking in sentences. He is speaking like a less than one year old would talk. Billie swears her doctor says its second child syndrome. Well I had three kids and they never did it. Cory should still not be speaking if that was the case! And what about that family with 19 kids? There youngest should be pre-verbal!!!! I really do feel sorry for Mikey though. Hailie takes over everything in that family and pushes him out. She acts like she is loving on him but she is doing it to get the adult attention. When I gave the kids their presents, she played with all of them and pushed him away. Now he is so young that he just grabbed something left behind and played with that. Unless he stays incredibly passive that wont last long and they will fight. Im surprised they didnt fight at his age now but I dont think he is cognitively there yet to understand. Im telling you...at 2 and 4, Jamie and Cory would have been duking it out. I dont know...I worry but not much to do. Hailie is very smart I think. She can sing so many little songs she is learning in her little nursery school. I just think there is something going on underneath. No kid is that unhappy all the time.
