7 Months Old - Happy Mothers Day

First I would like to wish all Mothers out there a very Happy Mother's Day. I now have a better appreciation for what you all have done for your children and what hard work and dedication it takes to not only be a mother, but a good mother!

This week has started to become a little more challenging. I believe they are all starting to teethe! They are whining and crying a lot and chewing on their hands and fingers ans drooling like crazy! Poor babies. I wish I could do more for them.

They are all doing well otherwise. They are all eating well...YES I said all! Lily has finally got the hang of it! She is finally eating from a spoon! Yay for Lily Bug! Sarah has not rolled over yet, but we are still practicing. She likes to lay on her side now...which is new for her. I swear she is trying to sit up though. She may be able to sit up before she rolls over. Luke is such a happy baby lately, the teething thing aside. He just smiles and laughs all the time. He has the cutest contagious laugh! Ava is just Ava. So independent. She wants to do what she wants to do and you can't make her do something she doesn't want to do! She is still scooching her way around!

We also went in the pool a couple of times this week. They really seem to enjoy it, it keeps them calm, and they go down for a nice LONG nap. We are going to try to change up their feeding schedule a bit this week. We are trying to go down to 4 bottles instead of 5, but with more in each bottle of course and we are going to add lunch to the menu. We had been doing breakfast (cereal & fruit) and dinner (vegetable). We'll see how it goes!

They are all still growing great. Their weights are
Sarah: 13 lbs.
Luke: 17 lbs.
Ava: 11 1/2 lbs.
Lily: 15 1/2 lbs

Happy Mother's Day Kelly! The pool looks like SO much fun! Swim diapers have been ordered and we're planning on a dip in the pool soon! Call the doc and see if the Squad's big enough for Motrin now. It's great for teething! HUGS HUGS HUGS!
