It has been an eventful week with Katie!



Yes, this innocent looking girl has been creating havoc for me this past week!
First, she has been climbing out of her crib. Yes, this little munchkin scales the crib like a professional! :) Earlier in the week, I even found her roaming the house when she was supposed to be napping! I still haven't decided what I want to do..........crib tent or toddler bed. The pediatrician is against the crib tent............so I am still deciding. She seems to "little" to be in a toddler bed already!
And second, Katie pulled out her tube!!!!! Yes, on Monday night, I rushed her to the ER at Mercer to see if they could re-insert it. They couldn't. The doc said it appeared already closed, and he could not get it back opened...........sooooo, I've talked to the GI doc at CHOP, and as long as she continues to gain weight and has no setbacks, she is tube free!!!! :)
Go, Katie girl!!!!!!

Bath time!



Lately, the babies have really enjoyed bath time. OMG, they giggle and yell and laugh so hard-it is so funny to watch them. Austin is the one to start the splashing.............and then his new thing is he likes to put half of his face in the water-he laughs sooo hard! They LOVE bath time..........I can't wait to get them in the pool! :)

Feeding and Swallowing appointment


Here is a pic of Katie girl today at her doc's appt.
It wasn't too bad. The nutritionist said that if Katie doesn't gain 2.5-5 ounces in two weeks, then we will restart small tube feeds at night. I think I can get her to gain that. He gave me a bunch of ideas for calorie boosting......... She weighed 19.3 lbs today. I am checking to see if the insurance will cover "Duocal", it's a calorie boosting tasteless powder you can add to her drinks, food, etc. I am hoping it is covered, b/c it costs like $35/can. I can add plain old s ugar to any fruit cups she eats..............and I've already started the cream cheese on bagels (she had it for a snack again tonight!) So we will see.......................I do not want her back on tube feeds. Fatten up, Katie girl, Fatten up!!!! :)

March for Babies

Please help support the March of Dimes. Without their research, education, and commitment to saving premature babies, Matthew, Emma, Katie, and Austin would not be thriving as they are now.

NKOTB Reunion???!!!!!


Ok, I know this post is not about the babies, but OMG, I found out tonight that the New Kids on the Block are reuniting! I sooo want to go to a concert..........I dug out these old photos of me when I went to a few concerts in the 90's............So funny, in the first pic, my friends and I were totally "decked o ut" in NKOTB apparel...............Since we didn't take the NKOTB home, for the next concert, we decided to dress "sexy"..........Yes, in the 90's according to this 14yo girl, "Cavariccis" (remember them??) and a polka dot shirt was "sexy"!!! :) Oh, I so wanted to be Mrs. Donnie Wahlberg!!!! :)

Spring Clothes!




I started taking out some Spring clothes for the babies...........I bought some capris and then these hooded zip up jackets that go with them.......but as you can see, Katie would not look at the camera for me! She would not pose! But you know my Emma, always ready for the camera! :)
