Today in Quadville...

We had them all together playing on Sunday. They were all talking and kicking and waving their hands in each other's face. Lt-Rt: Ricky, Heath, Ty, and Leah




Today Ricky rolled over from his tummy to his back! Over the past week his head control had gotten better and I catch him pushing up on his arms when he's on his belly so he can look around. Ty has been doing this for about a month now, he started at the end of December, first of January. Leah is working on it but gets ticked and then quits. Heath is my lazy boy. He'll look around for a bit then he's done! They have all found their hands now. I get cracked up at them as they try to shove their whole fist in their mouth. Leah also has found her ears and I like watching her as she holds her hands together. It's so sweet! We went to the doctor on Friday the 30th. My friend Toni went with me to help. We were both huffing and puffing by the time we got them into the room. Those kiddos are getting heavy! Ricky weighs in now at 12lbs 14oz; Heath is not far behind at 11lbs 12oz; Ty was 10lbs. 5oz and Leah was 10lbs 6oz-she beat Ty! Ty still hasn't been eating good since the surgery and even a little before that. He started eating less and taking longer on top of projectile puke. So I called Dr. Ong back on Tuesday and told her I thought we needed to change or do something now instead of waiting another 2 weeks. So she changed his stomach med to Prevacid. Today so far he's eating at 4 1/2 oz again instead of just 3oz. Hopefully this will do the trick. If not we will go back to Cook's to see a Gastroenterologist. So please pray that this is the answer! As you can tell the others are eating great and putting on the weight! On the 17th of this month we go to Cranial Technologies in Dallas to have the babies evaluated for cranial bands. The bands help reshape the babies skull if needed. I think Heath and Ricky for sure will need the bands but we're taking all of them to be evaluated. One longer trip with all 4 is easier that splitting it up. The bands are quite expensive so pray the insurance will cover! Jenna has been busy playing little dribblers basketball. They have had 2 games and won both! Their fun to watch play all hovering around the ball. Well must go about time to feed again! TTFN!
