Please also keep praying for Gina and family, for peace for them all and protection over them as a family as they grieve their little boy's death together.
David and Grace had their first ECI appointment at home. David promptly did three times in a row the test he "failed" in the office, and was scoring actual age (7 months) vs. adjusted age (4 months) on several areas, and in one area was doing stuff they only start to worry about if they don't see it by 11 months! So he was a bit perplexing for them as they tried to decide what to work on when they come out, since he wouldn't have qualified in the first place if he had simply performed in the office like he did at home! :) Grace does seem to lag behind the others, but it's so much fun to see her do a week or two later what David (usually) started, Will followed, then Marcie and Seth came behind. :) The newest thing is manipulating objects with their feet and grabbing their own toes. They are getting SO interactive, too! They love to laugh at and play with each other's limbs. :)
It is BUSY around here. They are getting more difficult in some ways as they sleep less and what more stimulation. Whew! I am GLAD Spring Break is over; I missed the volunteers and am super behind on some stuff! Today is a great catch-up day, including sleep. :)
Regarding the toys I asked for (used, garage sale, from people in this area), it's not that we can't go out and buy new ones as some sweet people have offered to do for us; it's just that I figure why not get more use out of washable used ones people don't need or want anymore? The kids outgrow them so soon, it's a shame to pay full price unless you have to, right?! ;) Maybe that's the missionary in me talking . . .
I can't post pictures as normal because our silly photo program isn't working, but I have some cute ones! The ones below I managed to get onto FB and then screen shot into this post. Getting creative in my attempt to show off the babies . . . ;)
Tummy time is much easier with Baby Einstein! But it still doesn't last really long. The therapist recommended this. Who knew TV could be a good thing?!
|Since Seth missed out on the tummy time photo due to sleeping, here he is with his bib only half off and looking really cute! :)|
