Today is not a good day for thinking. It may not be a good day for much. He spent about two of the five hours screaming his head off in the crib. We were pretty sure that our international student would be packing up this morning, but he didn't hear anything and also is the second of five brothers, so he may be impervious to noise. We are very, very grateful.
So far, he seems extremely nice, relaxed, and funny. Geoff got to talk for about an hour about martial arts, and Asim actually asked to hold Thomas, which is fantastic. Five brothers!
Also, his name seems to be pronounced "Awesome", which is great.
Oh, Thomas, go to sleep. No one is hurting you.
