Welcome to my Crib

The boys continue to do well.  Colton is hitting every milestone he should be hitting.  In fact, oftentimes, he hits milestones based on his actual age, not his adjusted age.  He may not continue on this path, but he has really set our expectations for him very high.  :)  We are working on sitting and crawling.  Once this kid gets mobile, we are in TROUBLE!!!  He has already learned that if he wants something, he can roll to get it.  About 10 days ago, he had his MRI to see how his ventricles look.  His appointment to see the neurosurgeon isn't until October, but if there was a problem with the MRI results, we would have heard from the doctor by now.

We are still working on Sean's eating.  He is such a slow and disorganized eater.  We have started waking him up in the middle of the night to feed him.  Good-bye sleeping through the night!  But, the good news is that in one month, he gained 15 oz!  Let's see if the little munchkin can keep it up.  We are still working on getting him to roll over.  He does it most of the time, but he hasn't quiet figured out how to roll his shoulder to get it under him. 

The really big news for the boys is that the are now in their own cribs - in their own room!!!  Colton outgrew his side of the crib so they boys had to be split up.  I wanted to have the co-bed (sleep in the crib together), but I don't feel comfortable doing it with an oxygen tube and two sets of apnea monitor cables.  So, into their own cribs they went.  And, since we can't fit two cribs in our room, they were moved into their own room.  The very first night they were in their room, I went in there and let out a big sigh and an, "aaaawwww."  From our room, you could hear Bubba saying, "you better not be crying in there!"  No, I wasn't . . . until he said that!   

I can't believe it's September already!  I've already gotten a call about Christmas plans (the family needs to know my work schedule to plan the family party).  Oh brother, know what that means???  FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY!!!!  HOLY SMOKES!!!!  I guess, I should get to thinking about that!  Heck, I don't even know what they are going to be for Halloween!  I did take a peek at some of the costume websites, but geez, I feel like I am very behind.  Very behind
