There is so much going on these days! Thankfully, everyone is healthy again and Manish was the only who had the flu.
The second round of Cisapride did not work; Aiden continues to vomit massive quantities of milk and it seems to be getting increasingly worse, rather than improving. He often gets dehydrated and we really are not sure what to do at this point. We will continue to consult with the doctors, although they are not certain where we should go from here. On a positive note, he is becoming more mobile. He moves at the speed of a turtle, but has made exceptional progress scooting around just in the last couple of weeks. While his increased mobility is great, it has become extremely challenging to keep him connected to his oxygen and feeding pump and also keep Ethan and Evan from pulling them over on top of each other.
The twins continue to grow like little weeds. Evan’s vocabulary is increasing every day. He will bring something to us or he will point to something and say “dis, dis” (this). He likes to try and imitate when we tell him what “dis” is. Evan’s newest favorite food is blueberries. Now everytime he is hungry or sees us eating, he says “beesz…beesz…beesz” (his version of “blueberries”). He cannot get enough of his blueberries! Whenever he eats something he likes, he says “nyamm, nyamm, nyamm” which means “yum, yum, yum.” Ethan’s new “word” is “adjiit,” and he is very into the “gggggg” sound. Not sure what that means, but whenever he wants to tell you something that is what he says. He has become very cuddly and sweet lately, and likes to run up to us, wrap his arms around our legs, and hold on as tight as he can.
All three of the boys have discovered how to play peek-a-boo, and are having a lot of fun running around with their hands over their eyes!
Everyone keeps asking for more pictures, so we have uploaded lots of new ones this round. Enjoy!
Aiden is so cute!
…and happy too…especially when he pulls his oxygen off…
hmmm…perhaps we could do this more often?
