Pretty boring week

Boring is sometimes good though! In this boring week we have had no sick babies and lots of sleep filled nights, including sleeping in every day until 6am or later! I am anxious to see how the nights go when we have to move the clocks ahead next weekend. When we turned them back last fall it didn't affect them one bit so I am hoping the same thing occurs turning them ahead.

I got in contact with Early Supports last week because I was concerned with Cameron losing words that he once was saying and grunting for everything. They were planning on coming out to do an evaluation when he decided to speak! He is saying all sorts of words now and even saying a couple 2 word sentances like "all gone" "all done" and "bath time". The other three have had a vocabulary explosion over the past week as well. I love to hear them talk in their cute little voices. They all sound so different!

We completed their 18 month ISQ's with their Bright Beginnings visitor and were very pleased to learn that they are pretty much on target with their actual age. The one big thing we need to work on is getting them to kick a ball. They have no interest in doing anything but picking the ball up and throwing it. I am so happy that they are all doing so well.

They had a sleepover with their cousin, Evan. He is so good with them even though he told me he can't wait until they learn to share toys better. They all love him so much. They got to have a visit with their other cousins, Kaden and Ella, as well and Matthew and Aubrey haven't stopped saying "Ellella" since Wednesday!

Today we were able to get out of the house and burn off some energy! We went to a play date at their friends, Kara and Addison's, house for a Pull Up Party. We got the potty dance video as a party favor that I hope to put to good use in the fall! After the party we took a little trip to Walmart then took the babies out to Applebee's for dinner. I am so proud of them for being able to go places like that and sit and eat a meal without causing a scene. We always get many compliments from other diner's on their behavior when we take them out.

Tomorrow the babies get to meet their newest cousin, Aidan! I am sure they are going to love him. They are all obsessed with babies right now.

We've been FLOCKED!

Nine years ago this summer there was so much uncertainty, would Ben make it through his treatments?  Would I be able to carry all four babi...
