Hall races with Isaac; new sandbox

Thank you for the sweet comments you've been posting! You're right, it's such a miracle to see these kiddos doing so amazingly well. I like how Seth's face has been filling out, even though he's still less than 5th percentile for weight, as is David. They're both normal height, though, so that encourages me that they don't have any stunting due to poor nutrition. They're just skinny preemie boys. Will . . . not so much. ;)

Isaac remains the favorite playmate around here. Marcie asks about him constantly: "Ishaac?" or I-aac," depending on how clearly she's speaking. Gracie seems to call him Isey. So cute! And Marcie said "Day'id" yesterday for David.

 As you can see, the "sandbox" is actually a kiddie pool that Gavin filled with sand from Home Depot. The kids LOVE it; the big kids who come play do too!

It was warm enough Will could go pant-less. He loves being naked.
Seth wouldn't let his naked foot touch!

We're having major issues with biting. I would be interested in some advice, especially if it pertains to twins or higher order multiples. Will and David especially see it as their most powerful weapon. David, for instance, tried to bite Will and Seth to keep them from coming through the gate when he wanted to be the only one on the other side playing with the empty diaper box. I don't know how much to discipline them because I don't know if it's serving any purpose at this young age when they'll just do whatever works regardless of the consequences. And I have to act so quickly because they forget what they've done within seconds! I have been trying a couple of things but to no avail yet. Maybe it's just going to take time. I know it's a stage, but it's a painful one for the victims. :( I appreciate prayer for wisdom!

Love and gratitude,

Gavin, Carrie, Isaac, Will, David, Marcie, Seth, & Grace Jones
