Nakie Babies

Hey sis, give me your hand.
I want to eat your hand.
Get way from me crazy!
Geez, what's the big deal?

Everyone is always asking me if the babies love sleeping by each other. If they entertain each other and if they talk in their own little language to each other. The answer would be, "no." They mostly just like to bug the other. They are way more interested in everyone else than each other.

I don't want to go back to Missouri yet but being away from her doctors has been stressful. We have an appointment on Jan. 7. We think she's been gaining good weight but we aren't sure what the expectation for her is. We're really hoping to avoid a feeding tube.

I'll be honest. I wish I could skip next year and jump ahead to 2012. It's going to be really rough for our family. I'm lucky to have such a great support system. I know I couldn't do any of this without them. When Lucy came home at 6 days old she was almost completely asymptomatic. Their was very little difference between the way we treated Lucy and Hazel. As Hazel has gotten older the easier she seems to get but the opposite seems true of Lucy. She's difficult to console, difficult to put to sleep and when we're just too worn out, we still can't let her fuss. I'm definitely not looking forward to her next surgery but I really want it done so we can all just move on with life. I know it's not that simple but some days that's all I can hope for

Those girls look great. I love that they want to bug each other. Hopefully that changes before they're teenagers. I can see some great fights in your future. Hope you all had a nice Christmas.

Well if this means anything, which it probably doesn't, Lucy doesn't seem nearly as pint sized as when she came. I could feel some meat on her bones in just a weeks time. Sorry you have to deal with this, but they are so adorable and their futures so bright, whatever they may be. We love you guys.

It's cool to see them next to each other in just their diapers because you can really tell how much bigger Hazel is then little Lucy! They are adorable and getting big! Lucy little chest looks so good too!
