5 Months Old

This week seemed to fly by like the others. It went so fast, I feel like there is nothing new to report. Everyone is doing very well and getting so big. Today I tried to put Luke in something and it was 0-3 months. It didn't fit. It was so tight...I couldn't believe it. He never even got to wear it. So, I had Christening dresses which my mother-in-law had purchased for them, thinking at the time that 0-3 months would fit. I had to take them all back today, and of course, they didn't have them in any bigger size. They said they are doing away with that department. So I had to hurry up and order them online because they are getting Baptized on March 22nd. It will take 2-3 days.....I hope!!!!

Another thing about Luke...he puts off soo much heat. He is always sweating it seems. I don't understand. He's not sick. His temp. had been fine. I guess he's just a He is solid. He's a big boy.

Ava had her first round of feeding therapy today. She has to go once a week every Wednesday at 10:00am. It's an hour drive. She may have to go more than once a week. Didn't you know I have that much time on my hands for just her! Thank God Nick and I have help. So, back to the feeding therapy. Since she has issues swallowing (going down her windpipe), she has feeding therapy to teach her to eat the right way and teach me ways to improve her eating habits since she is a terrible eater. The therapist told me to start feeding her rice cereal. That should be fun! They said she may have problems with her speech as she gets older, but just because she has feeding therapy, doesn't mean she definitely will have speech problems. Stay tuned on that one!

Sarah has become happy baby this week. She coos and plays and is definitely a morning baby! She is so happy when she first wakes up. She is so funny. She also loves to poop when you are feeding her. She thinks it's hilarious! Therefore she doesn't eat very well. It's cute, but it does get frustrating after a while.

Lily is just always happy, but always wants to be held. She was very unhappy tonight, which is unusual. That is why I am so late writing this. We couldn't get her to calm down. She was having a crying fit and she finally fell asleep. Now the trick is to get her up to eat later...that will be fun!

Not much else to report. Oh, Nick got a guitar. He bought it from our accountant, who is in a band. Nick finally got a book today to learn how to play. I'm sure he'll have lots of fun with it. Now I need to find something for me to drown myself in when I have some free time. I still plan on finishing my scrapbook this week and get some pictures in order.

Have a great rest of the week:)

Hope the feeding therapy is successful (and worth the weekly hour drive - that stinks). The kiddos are getting huge! It's amazing how quickly they outgrow clothes after the first 6 month. It's like they're playing catch-up at first and then BAM, they start growing like weeks! Rotating clothes through the dressers is a neverending job.
