9 Months

We can't keep track of this girl!

Rylee is truly her daddy's mini me. She has his birthmark at the
bottom of her hair line.

Happy 40th Birthday Daddy!

We can't keep her out of here!

I had to put a picture of Rylee sleeping with her lamb.

Can you believe this? The girls are now 9 months old as of today. We celebrated another big milestone in our house this week too. Daddy is now the BIG 40! We have had a very busy week in our house. Tiny K was here on Wednesday and they were really glad to see the progress the girls have made. Jordan had to show off her sitting skills and Rylee had to show that she is at least trying to roll over now. Jordan is now rocking on her knees and just thinking about crawling. She has been all over the place rolling and scooting and she sure is keeping us on our toes. Rylee is even opening her mouth for her cereal and baby food so Tiny K was glad to see that. We are still working on the sippy cup and bottle and all she wants to do is chew on it. They have us trying a straw and just putting drips in her mouth and maybe she will start sucking after she gets the hang of it. We started Thursday off at the pediatrician office and we were there almost an hour and a half. Rylee hit the scales at 14 pounds 7 ounces and is in the 41% compared to other 25 week preemies. Jordan weighed in at 15 pounds 3 ounces and is in the 55 % compared to other 25 week preemies. The doctor walked in and was amazed with the girls by just looking at them. He hasn't seen them in a month and was really impressed with the progress they are making. He thinks Rylee is a totally different baby then the one we took into see him in May. I guess I didn't think she looked that bad then, but he said she looks very well for what all she has been through. We are trying to get Rylee's nursing company to come give them their synagis (RSV) shots each month so we don't have to take them into the doctor's office each month. If this is the case we don't have to go see the pediatrician for another three months. We have alot of work to do in the next few days to see if we can get this done. I think the doctor could see the fear in my eyes about coming into the doctor's office on a regular basis. The girls received their hepatitis shots and Rylee was able to get a flu shot. Unfortunately Jordan wasn't able to get the flu shot as we have to take her to the main pediatrician office for this. We also have to take the girls to get some routine blood within the next few weeks. We finished the day by making a trip to Saint Lukes Children Spot for their 9 month developmental screenings. They told us Rylee passed with flying colors and so before they even worked with Jordan we knew they were both right on track developmentally. They still are not seeing any signs of Cerebral Palsy and no early sings of autism as well. I walked away from this appointment feeling very good about our miracles. We don't have to go back for 7 months for their adjusted one year screening unless we feel like they need to be seen. We are getting the same services through Tiny K (infant and toddlers) so no real need to see them again. Little Rylee is really starting to make some sounds around her trach and it is pretty cute. She thinks she is hot stuff when she starts to squeak. The video below of Rylee shows her making some sounds. She can do it a little better at times, but this is the only video I have of her for now. It does kind of scare me sometimes because I panic and think her trach fell out.
