12 month bear pics

Our big furry girl looking beautiful in the snow.

Alot of sleeping in our house.

I thought I better do an update for this past week as I got verbally reprimanded by my uncle last night for not getting one up on Sunday. This is for you Uncle Fred! We have had a great week with the girls and just trying to stay on top of them. They got their third synagis shot (RSV) on Thursday and both seem to be doing better with them. Rylee weighed 17 pounds and Jordan weiged 17 pounds 10 ounces. I think Rylee is going to catch her before too long. Rylee has really taken off with her feedings during this past week. If we could only get her to take her formula by mouth. We take one thing at a time with this girl. She seems to reach her milestones when she is good and ready. She is now getting 1/2 of her special digested formula and 1/2 of Jordan's high calorie preemie formula. We had Tiny K (infant and toddlers) here today and she has seen some huge improvements with both girls. She thinks Rylee will be crawling by tomorrow! Oh NO! How am I going to keep up with two girls? Jordan has found the toilet and Maddie's dog dish so it is very interesting keeping up with her. We survived several nights of no night nursing this past week and we were so happy when our regular night nurse was back on Sunday night. Our nursing agency is not being very nice to us lately. We have the girls scheduled for their one year pediatrician appointments on Thursday so hopefully the weather is good enough for us to get out. They will get their one year immunizations so I am sure they can wait for another day. Rylee had to give her daddy a hard time on Saturday after she pulled her trach out while jumping in the jumperoo. Daddy wasn't sure why he heard her crying and then he realized what had happened. Thankfully she hasn't done this to me yet, but I am sure it is coming soon. Oh and Jordan is saying Momma and Mom. Melts my heart! She has been saying Dad and Dadda for several months so it is so good to hear these words.


  1. Sounds like Rylee's trying to tell you she's tired of that trach! Praying her airway heals and grows without the need for surgery, and that one of these days, she won't need the trach at all!

    Miss you!

  2. Jordan apparently thinks that what is good for Maddie is good enough for her. And the toilet has clean water after every flush!!!! Love the cheerleaders. Do you need skates yet to keep up???? Yep, Rylee just wants to keep you guys on the up and up. I think she gets bored so thinks about what she can do to entertain herself. Wouldn't you like to know what she is thinking when she pulls some of her stunts?
