Gammy's birthday

Gammy, for those of you who don't know, is my mother. That's what the grandkids call her anyway. She secretly wishes she was a Nana, but not just anyone can pull off being a Nana. My mom has been in Kansas City for the last month now. She has been a big help and we're able to get a decent amount of sleep because she takes one of the night time feedings. We love Gammy. Happy Birthday Momma!

Gammy's Birthday: Gammy not pictured

We had a pinata for Gammy's birthday. Jack and his friend tried hitting it. They barely made a dent in that thing. It was so funny to watch.

Jack nearly crushed it.
Jack blew out candles for Gammy.

Wow Hazel...what are you looking at?

Hazel says, "You stink Lucy."
I think Lucy looks so funny in this picture.

Hazel is just lounging nakie in the blankie her grandma Hutchings made.
A little update on the girls

Lucy: We met with Lucy's cardiologist this week. He thinks she's looking good. She's only in the 3rd percentile right now for height and weight and may need to be put on high calorie formula in the future, but she's ok for now. The doctor's probably won't operate until she is at least 6 months old unless she starts going downhill. Lucy is a good little girl. She is going to be so spoiled. I get nervous when she cries for very long because I worry about her heart. So she gets picked up a lot. Hazel may resent us one day for not picking her up as quickly.

Hazel: This week we called the pediatrician because Hazel's soft spot was bulging out a little. The doctor told us to go to the ER. We thought this seemed unnessasary but we went anyway. They told us she was fine and explained her condition a little better to us. I feel pretty good about things with her right now. She's a good little eater and is quickly outgrowing her sister. She loves faces and loves to stare into our eyes. Gammy says Hazel must be "highly intelligent." Lucy on the other hand...

We love our kids.

So good to "hear" not here!

I can't say it enough. They are just darling. What a fun thing you did for mom. And with the girls having such a clever mom, how could they both not be "highly intelligent?" Can't pull off being a Nana. You crack me up.
