"Webster"! Chandler yelled as he got out of the car after school today when he saw his brother standing in the doorway.
He ran up the sidewalk and up the stairs and threw his arms around his brother and said, "Gimme a hug", and squeezed and squeezed his big brother, with a huge smile on his face. Finally Web tried to pull Chandler's arms off his neck, but nothin' doin'. When I got there, he put out one arm and said, "Mommy"! So I bent down and he hugged both of us around the neck, smashing all three of our heads together.
He was the one in charge of that hug and I could barely keep my balance.
You would have thought his brother had just come back from war by the greeting he gave him, but it had only been four hours since they had seen each other.
Chandler has never been that excited to see anyone. Ever.
We started him on the SCD diet last week and he has had lots of prayer this week from lots of people that it would help him out. He has been a bit more verbal this week, but the thing that has been the most dramatic is just how affectionate and attentive he has been to us.
I don't remember anything in the research that says that it would turn kids into love machines. Perhaps a study should be done.
