Feeding Time!

Sandra doesn't take many naps, but she found mom's pillow to be quite comfortable! She also wanted to rest up for her first meal at the new feeding table.

We celebrated our Memorial Day weekend by making baby food. It took a good portion of the weekend, but I think we have enough apples, avocados, bananas, carrots, green beans, pears, squash, and zucchini to last about a month.

We felt it was time to give the feeding table a try. The girls were really good sports, and the feeding was so much fun.

Next time, I want Bananas!

MMmmmmmm Green Beans with a side of thumb!

What, no dessert?

Can I have more please?

Maxine liked the feeding table most of all. MMmmmmm green beans with a side of toes!

Sorry we haven't posted in awhile, but we have been busy with doctors, doctors, baby food, doctors, finals, and doctors.

Samantha had cardiology and eye appointments this week. Currently, her blood pressure is high due to the pinching of her Aorta, but as of now the doctor's is not concerned. Everything else with her heart is 100% better. However, she is going to be continuously watched. During her eye appointment we found out that she has a history of R.O.P. The doctor saw her cross her eyes and said that she maybe nearsighted. He said that some crossing of the eyes is normal, and she needs to be evaluated when she is one year old.

Hannah and Samantha have each discovered new sounds! Hannah's is a window-shattering shriek! The crazy thing is that it doubles as both jubilation and a warning to oncoming hunger! Samantha's new noise is more difficult to describe. It sounds similar to a playing card in a bicycle spoke. She only makes it in the morning during her diaper change, but she thoroughly enjoys making it and so doe we! It is almost as cool as watching her pick up her pacifier and put in her mouth (another new development).

All of the girls have been on the fussy side this week, but with good reason. They are beginning to teethe! We can actually feel the bump in Hannah's mouth. Poor Makaila only really gets relief when you rub her gums with a pacifier or a teething ring. For the first time in nearly two months we were awakened by a baby crying. It has only happened once so far, but we do not expect that to last for long.

Josh got an A on each of his finals and is still maintaining a 4.0 GPA in his MBA program. He says he doesn't care what grade he gets, but the girls and I know better!

How did the girls react to the toe tickling tongue?

What cutie girls! Yes, they do seem to eat a lot. Kudos to you on making their food. I sort of do that with our girls, e.g. mostly canned veggies or fruit, fresh bananas, canned beans, applesauce, pasta/ravioli, yogurt. I told my husband the other day "man! our girls go through a can or big tub (32oz) of yogurt FAST! like in a day or two!" He replied with "yeah, and they're only 15mo old! not big girls yet!" Ha! :P Oh so true!

Have fun with your girlies! I know for us it's been SO fun seeing our four girls grow these past 15mo. It goes by fast ;)

I love the table!!!!!!!!! I diddnt realize they could sit up so nice and tall already. When they get a little older, that will make a great arts and crafts table for them as well. The pictures are wonderful. And Maxine is such a good girl to help with the dishes! Too funny!

Way to do Josh on your grades!!!! Dont know how you can manage it all!

Miss you guys! Deb
