Our Last Month and A Half

I'm way overdue for this update, but this is what we've been up to...

My little Kaimen has had a lot happen in the last few months. At the end of April, he had his endoscopy. The results came back negative and everything seems to be fine. 2 weeks later he had his circumcision. He spent a lot of time in this cute little purple gown. He was such a good boy and handled the anesthesia really well. All the nurses fell in love with him, just like they did when he was in the NICU.

The beginning of May the twins had their first swimming trip. We went with our friends that Chamberlain's. The water was still a little cold, but they still had a great time. Danica just watched her legs kick in the water the whole time and Kiamen laughed. We will be spending a lot of time in the pool this summer.

I took Kaimen to the Nuerologist a few weeks ago. I've been worried about his development. He isn't sitting up yet or progressing like Dani. She said he does need to start therapy to help strenghten the low muscle tone in his back. We have someone coming to the house on Monday to start helping him. Oh man, I love this kid. Oh yeah and he has 6 teeth now!
We took our first little vacation with the twins to my family's cabin. Danica and Kaimen had the best time with their aunts and uncles, cousins, and Gamma and Papa. Bailey and Olivia kept them entertained almost the whole time which was a nice break for me and Rich. The guys did some shooting and the girls did some shopping. My mom and dad were nice enough to let Kaimen sleep in their room so I could sleep. It was awesome!

I love this picture of Livi. She was having the time of her life with her PB&J.

Danica is now sitting up like a big girl, she is so close to crawling. She holds her own bottle, and this last week she has started clapping her hands. Her and Kiamen have both had a rough month. Danica got RSV and was really sick for a few weeks. But she did manage to stay out of the hospital. It was dissapointing because we worked so hard to keep her from getting RSV by keeping her locked up in the house all winter. We thought RSV season was over, but I guess not.
Right when Dani got better Kaimen got pneumonia and was really sick for a few weeks also. Let's just say we spent lots of long nights together and lots of mommy cuddle time. I'm so glad they are feeling better now though and back to their happy selves.

When she was supposed to be sleeping...this is what she was doing instead...naughty little girl!

Well that's about it for the kids. Me and Rich are doing good. I don't see my husband much. He is selling pest control this summer and works really long days.(Let us know if you have bugs and need pest control) I had no idea how much I would miss him. He works really hard and I appreciate him so much. I'll be glad when I get to spend more time with him. I'm working just about 1 day a week and try to find fun free things to do with the kids to keep us entertained the rest of the week. I feel so lucky to be home with my babies, they keep me on my toes and I wouldn't change it for anything!
