Let me tell you... Ford and Hayden are getting so big and as we all already know, they are such strong boys.
About 3 weeks ago they caught their 1st cold. For us, no big deal, ya know, just a little annoying... but for them it can be really tough with their chronic lung disease. Fortunately, the tough twins are finally getting over the sniffles and the cough. We had to do breathing treatments, some steroids and eventually an antibiotic for a sinus infection, but now... they are really sounding great! I am so happy because I am so scared, especially for flu and RSV season. We will get through it, though... I am just believing in that fact!
They are also getting so big, relatively speaking from where they started at under 2 pounds. Both are inching really close to 15 whopping pounds. That's about right for their corrected age which is getting close to 6 months. Technically they are almost 9 months though.
They are turning over from their tummies to their backs and with a little coaxing, the other way as well. They love their Baby Einstein playstations and standing up on us... with help of course! Both boys are also learning to eat new baby foods each week. Boy, that can be messy with a capital M! I swear they can both say "mama", but Trey's not buying it. I am so looking forward to them crawling and walking, though... I don't think Hayden is going to crawl. I think he is going to skip it and go to walking. He loves to stand and has for months now.
Ford is still on a whiff of oxygen, but we hope that is coming to a stop soon. We have a pulmonologist appointment this month and we see the urologist soon as well and I am hoping we are kidney stone free because last time they saw a few on little Hayden. I am praying for no more surgeries!!!!!!
They have the BEST personalities. Hayden is still the little comedian and Ford is funny too! He loves for you to stick out your tongue and he will respond with his best lizard impressin as well. Hayden just loves to giggle and make his static noise. They really enjoy looking at each other as well. Sometimes I think they are not sure why there is another guy across from them dressed just the same. They are adorable.
Every Saturday we dress them up in their College Football outfits... We are a house divided and so are they. One baby gets decked out in Texas A&M and the other in TU, oh I mean UT. They are our little good luck charms. Of course on Sunday, they are always wearing their Cowboys colors. Gram is still coming over every night to hang out with her grandsons and loving every tiring minute of it. Big Honey also comes over during the day and helps me out with the boys when she can. Trust me, it can be crazy trying to feed two babies at one time. It is getting so much easier. Now, one will either play or nap while I feed the other. It is fabulous, we finally have a system.
Motherhood, nothing beats it! I am blessed more than you'll every know.
Dana, Trey, Ford and Hayden
