A step in the right direction

This morning while Wyatt and Katya were playing with baby dolls (yes I know haha), Wyatt whacked Katya in the head for taking HIS baby. They had been fighting over HER baby (LaLa) so I went to get his baby (Glowbaby) and two minutes later she tried to take it from him.

When he hit her head, she didn't hit back. She didn't scream uncontrollably. She hollared "Mama" and started crying. She wanted me to pick her up and comfort her. That is pretty huge. I feel like we've made progress. Before when she got hurt she'd either just get mad and scream or lash out at what hurt her.

I made Wyatt sit in timeout and then come appologize and kiss her. (He really didn't hit her hard- but hitting is not tolerated).

So the hitting was not a good thing, but Katya wanting and accepting comfort from me was :)

We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life; but those who make their journey home across time and miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them,are carried on the wings of destiny; and placed among us by God's very own hands. --Kristi Larson
