We went back to Urbana on Thursday to see Dr. Morton to follow up on their development. This appointment was in the morning. There was no way our babies were going to be able to sit in their car seats for another two hrs. So this time I disinfected the room completely and laid down a huge blanket. It worked out so well. I am sure the nurses probably thought I was crazy for setting up camp, but our babies were much happier. I have to say Jon is the best dad!! Not many dad's could keep three hungry and tired babies busy while I was with Dr. Morton during each babies checkup. Everyone at Dr. Morton's office was so impressed with how well the babies are doing. The Pt thought they would just be starting to sit. Reese and Maggie checked out with flying colors. Dr. Morton would like to see Gavin gain a little weight to keep up with his height. He would like for Lauren to see a nutritionist. She also has a little low tone in her trunk that he thinks she will out grow. I am still doing extra exercises with her to increase her strength!! Please pray that area will get stronger!!!!
I have also added another link to blogs we follow. It is Kayleigh's story, she was born at 1lb 1oz. and is 6mos. old and still in the nicu. Please keep her in your prayers at night!!!!! She seems to be quite the little fighter.
Here are a couple of photos from today:)
Now Reese will always smile for a picture!

It was so nice on Saturday we took the babies outside to see the geese. I think we might have scared the geese away.
Jon and Gavin walking around my parents backyard. Notice the geese are gone :(
Aunt Risa reading a bed time story. They love listening to books. Notice Gavin is out of sight. He usually takes off during book time

They are growing very well!! We are so blessed.
