15 Weeks Old

Well, another week has passed with no visitors or help and we are still alive! We are on a pretty good schedule, but we are getting a kink tomorrow.....a good kink though............AVA IS COMING HOME!!!!!! We are very excited and I hope she is too! She is coming home with no oxygen and no wires! Yipee!!! She will be on medications for her reflux...prevacid and regulan (not sure of spelling). We had a wonderful visit with her on Sunday and she seemed so excited to see us. The nurses said that she must know who we are because they have never seen her so joyus and alert and fun! She was such a pleasure. Not sure of her latest weight, but as of January 30th, she was 8lbs. 4oz. She is eating a little over 2 oz. every 3 hours. That will be a tough one because the others eat every 4- 4 1/2 hours. We'll manage. Anything to have her home.

Everyone else is doing great. They are all smiling on their own now, not because they have gas, but because they are smiling at us! It is so fun! I could play with them all day ....when they are happy that is.

Luke has really come a long way. I believe the change in formula and zantac have really helped him. He is really quite a happy baby now, except when he is hungry.... watch out! He can really hold his head up good and he loves to sit in the entertainer and play. He does get tired after about 15 minutes and wants out, but it's fun for him for that amount of time. He gets so excited when we put him in it. He seems to be a momma's boy though. I seem to be the only one that can calm him...lately anyway.

Lily is still as big as can be, but as dainty as can be, the little princess. She has a hard time holding her head up,.. I think because she is so big. She loves to smile and talk to you. She makes the qwirkiest faces. It's so funny!

Sarah......the little cute devil in disguise! Lately that is what I have been calling her. She has been crying a lot latey and does not want to go to sleep. She is a smart one...I swear she knows what's going on. She knows when it's time for be..she starts screaming....she knows when it's time to eat..she starts screaming...when she is getting a bath, every time I sit her up to wash her, she scrunches down lower to get her whole body in the water (it's actually pretty funny). She always wants attention and is extremely demanding. I don't know what I'm going to do with her when she is a teenager!!! Lord help me now.

Things are really going good, honestly. We have our bad days, I'm not gonna lie...sometimes many in a row, but over all things are good. They will get even better tomorrow!!!!!

Hooray, Ava! I am so glad to hear that she is coming home!!!!! It's been awhile but it was worth the wait I am sure. Can't wait to see the pics next week (if you have a chance) to see Ava with the rest of the crowd. Love the smiles and the horsey outfits.
Talk to you soon.

I hope Ava is settling in with her brother & sisters. I can't wait to see pics of them altogether either! Ava looks great as well as Luke, Lily & Sarah! They look chubby & healthy! I love chubby cheeks! It's funny to see the pics with your dad & the babies just laying in his lap. It won't be long before they are jumping all over him! You guys are amazing! Keep up the great work. The babies look so happy!
