Liam at the aquarium
Here the babies are in their baby swings. We try to make sure they are not in them too long, but it is a great place when I cannot hold them.
Here is River and her sweet smile.
Here is Miss Brielle
Brielle and River
Kai, Brielle, Liam, River, "baby dolls", and Kian
Today the babies are 5 months old. These last five months have been amazing, there has been an intense amount of work, everyone growing, and fun.
The boys are growing a bit more independent and are able
to play more together. Legos have brought them together. Every night I give the babies a bath in the sink in the bathroom. It gets a little crazy. Babies are screaming and I scramble to tend to them. During baths Kai and Kian make great lego creations. Once the babies are clean Sidney and I feed them as Kian and Kai bring the parade of legos in. It is a great time of day.
The babies are growing here is a video of Liam. It was the first time he touched his sister and interacted with her.
Liam weighs 13.03 pounds and is getting stronger every week. Liam was born with a lower tone and has had problems feeding and still can't really cry, cough or sneeze well. The muscles in his trunk are low and will get stronger. I still cannot wait to hear a real cry and not a wimper. He is getting stronger and able to support his head a bit. He has physical therapy a few times a month and I know that will help. He was the first to laugh out loud and loves being played with. He has a huge smile and it is so sweet. We are still working on nursing. He is not very strong and may not transfer much, but we are working on it.
Brielle is 15.03 pounds. She loves to laugh and must be in constant contact with Mommy. She loves to breastfeed all night long. She is the only one who can nurse. She receives almost 100% breastmilk. She is so sweet.
River is the strongest and has been smiling for awhile. She always meets us with a smile. She weighs 16.03 pounds. River is so happy and loves to play.
The boys are so gentle with the babies. They hug them and snuggle them all day. They love to make them smile and laugh.
We have had so much snow and the boys have been having so much fun. They built a great snowman with Sidney
