Updates...........



So, our babies are almost 11 months old! Where did the time go? Here are some pics from this time last year..................wow! And I still had more than a month to go! :)
Anyway, the babies are doing so well.
Emma officially took her first step yesterday. She has been standing "unassisted" for some time now, and finally took one step before she fell down yesterday. She is still my "little devil" or "chaos" as Tom call her. She is inquisitive and has no fear. I think that's a good quality, believe it or not! When Emma gets very tired or even sick, alls I here from her is "ma ma".............
Austin's doing great! He is my big teddy bear. He loves to cuddle and absolutely adores my mother's crocheted blankets. He actually cried in his crib tonight until Lexi handed him one of those blankets. He is the biggest, but by far the most loveable. He loves to be held and his new thing is climbing on everything and even trying to tear down the curtains...............numerous times a day! Austin also says a variety of things, "ba ba, mama, dada"...........
Katie is doing soo well. We are feeding her finger foods and she is having a blast with all the new textures in her mouth and new tastes. She loves the Gerber Cheese puffs=they are her favorite. Katie also stands unassisted, but hasn't mastered taking a step yet. She is such a good girl-so calm, mellow, and a very happy baby. She can play by herself for hours and be happy. Katie CAN say "mama" although lately she prefers "dada" over and over and over again! Daddy is so proud! :)
And Matty, my little "peanut" Matthew. He is doing well, too. We are giving him higher-calorie foods to try and boost his weight gains. He is consistently "army crawling" and sometimes crawling the correct way. He stands, cruises, and sits down perfectly. He just started sitting up a few weeks ago. He is doing so well. He hasn't got the "consonant" thing yet, he more just kind of yells to let you know what he wants, but I am sure it will come in time..............
11 month, wow-where did the time go?
Bad news is that none of the babies qualify for the RSV shot. I was hoping at least Katie would, but the pediatrician told us today that she does not. Ugh-I better buy humungous bottles of Purell for the family to use................... :)

It's kinda weird to see your old preggo pics. Too bad they can't get the RSV shots. It's a very expensive shot (we had to pay for one when our insurance changed...applied to deductible) over $2500. Hope everyone stays as healthy as they can this winter.

Annie,
Love the update....you look fabulous with 4 babies in you :)

Sure is fun to go down memory lane...

Try to take the babies not qualifing as a compliment...I pray they stay healthy...but honestly when doc 1st said Tommy didn't qualify I felt like it was a compliment....at the same time when I was told that he did qualify I felt a bit reassured he'd get the extra protection.

These babies are thriving so well...what a blessing!
