Another A+ Visit

We had the boys’ 15 month appt. yesterday & all checked out great! They’ve definitely slowed down in the weight gain department.. hmmmm.. wonder if the constant movin’ & groovin’ has anything to do with it?

We are now moving Landon off of formula & onto Soy milk. We will see how that goes in the next few days. Also, NO MORE BOTTLES. It needed to happen, & the Dr. said to pull the trigger.  So, last night they got sippy cups before bed & it worked just fine. Amazing that they are still alive & fine without the bottle. Crazy how that works. ;)

Here are their percentiles:

*weight- 23lbs, 7 oz(25-50%)
*height- 30.8 in. (50-%)

*weight- 20lbs, 4 oz (5%)- (A.K.A. skinny boy)
*height- 30.5 (50%)

Another visit where we feel blessed each day that these boys have come so far!

On the move x 2

Well, we officially have 2 walkers in our house now. It’s quite busy & fun at the same time. Hudson is still more cautious and slow & Landon is all out fast & a bit clumsy. I counted 3 falls & bumps & a little bloody nose while just at Robyn’s house yesterday! Yowsers! I’m sure it’ll take some time before they totally get the hang of it.

And Jason reminds me that they are boys & will have bruises and bumps daily. :) I actually try not to gasp or react when they fall so that we don’t create “pansies” for boys.. haha!

This week, we also have pointing at things from Hudson, Landon saying bye- bye, & both saying ball. They are LOADS of fun lately!


Do you think they’ll see us back here?

And down I’m about to go…

Outside Playtime!

Well I must say, we’ve been enjoying our patio almost nightly now & the boys say it’s by far their favorite place to be. :)

Extreme Patio Makeover

The past month has been busy with workers putting in a new patio. We decided after 5 years of living here, it’s time to enjoy the outside of our home! We put in a stamped concrete patio, flower bed, trees, & some furniture. We finished planting yesterday & have already been spending our evenings out there. :) The boys already love it!

The boys did their first 5k race on Saturday. They ended up crossing the finish line at the same time, imagine that?! So we aren’t sure who really won.

It was a great charity event supporting brain cancer sponsored by Dr. Pepper. We really enjoyed it & we want to do more in the future!

NICU Reunion

Yesterday was our 2nd year to go to the NICU reunion & see all of the wonderful nurses that took such great care of our boys. We are forever grateful for those nurses helping the boys grow stronger & stronger each day. Here are a few pics from the event.. I think the lens might have been a little dirty bc they seem blurry. Nonetheless, we had a great time visiting the best hospital & staff at Baylor Frisco!

Last year’s pic at the NICU reunion. What tiny tikes!


The boys’ first friend: Carter! He was in the NICU
a week before us & they used to live on our street too!
We’ve remained friends & hope to play with him more this
