Happy 1st Birthday Jordan and Rylee
Sorry I am just getting around to posting pictures from their 1st Birthday. Life with two 1 year olds is extremely busy or maybe it is just that I am too busy playing with all their new toys. We are so proud of these little miracles and are loving every minute of them. We had a great birthday celebration. Thanks to everyone that helped with getting the cakes and food prepared for this special day. The girls were a bit overwhelmed with all the people, but handled it better than I expected. Rylee was really tired so she had some moments that she wanted to just be held and put to sleep. Rylee won the prize for the messiest cake that is for sure. Neither one of them put much into their mouth, but they did enjoy their first cake. I am still in shock that the girls are now one. Thank you to everyone that has supported us through this year. Tiny K was here on Tuesday and had nothing but good things to say about the girls. Jordan will be walking within a few weeks and Rylee is almost crawling. She is up on all fours and rocking back and forth. Rylee impressed them with her eating ability. She took some of her yogurt juice from a bottle and did very well picking up her snacks and eating them. They want us to start feeding them more table food so we are working on that. Rylee is doing better with it than Jordan is so far. Tiny K will be back in two weeks to go over our IEP's and so far Jordan has mastered all the goals that we initially set for her. The only one that she didn't master was the sleeping on the back, but there is not much we can do about it now. Rylee is still doing very well with everything besides taking her liquids by mouth. Tiny K reminded me that the girls are only 8 months adjusted so doing very well for what they have been through. We are going to try Rylee's PMV (speaking valve) today as it has been a week since her bronch. Hopefully she can get some air up through her vocal cords now that they doctor stretched her airway out a bit. I think we are going to enjoy spending Christmas at home with our girls as the weather is not looking too good right now. Today is our fourth wedding anniversary so we are going to go enjoy dinner and a movie tonight. Our night nurse is coming three hours early so we can enjoy our evening out. Last year we spent our 3rd Anniversary in the hospital so we are going to enjoy this one out on the town.
