We took the girls in for their 2 1/2 year check up on Friday and talked the doctor into removing Rylee's G tube! We haven't used it for a few months and she seems to be doing fine without thickening her liquids so we felt it was time to get it out. It is going to be so nice to not have to worry about her pulling it out on accident. The site looks pretty bad and will probably require surgery to close the hole. It is still leaking quite a bit so we are just keeping it covered. Jordan seems very concerned over Rylee not having her "button" anymore. Jordan was even kissing Rylee's "owie" tonight. Rylee has been gaining weight really good and weighed in at 26 1/2 pounds and was 34 inches long. Jordan has only gained two pounds during this past year and weighed in at 24 1/2 pounds and was 33 inches long. We talked to the doctor about his thoughts of getting the girls into a preschool program and he thought their immune systems will be able to handle it. He was surprised that we haven't been in for very many sick visits since bringing the girls home. After we left the appointment we went to the preschool office and put a deposit down to hold two spots for this next semester. They will start going on 9/1/11 and will go two mornings a week for three hours. I am so excited for them! I am just hoping we don't have any preschool drop outs. We will still have our nanny come on those days as she will have to take them and pick them up from school. We took the girls to the Great Wolf Lodge on Tuesday night and had a great time. Jordan was not too excited about spending the night and eventually fell asleep right beside me and didn't leave my side all night. Rylee slept in the same bed as Troy and fell out of bed during the night and didn't even cry. They were both up bright and early and we went swimming for a little bit and then went out to lunch and then went to Cabelas and they loved all the animals. We are having a relaxing weekend at home this weekend. Troy played in a softball tournament today in the 104 degree heat and I stayed home with the girls. I am going to go volunteer in the NICU tomorrow so I am excited about that.
