We're home from the hospital (spent 14 days there total) and the girls are doing well. The boys have had another cold, but so far the girls have not caught it (fingers crossed). We went to the MD today for a follow up and Millie has an ear infection. She has not seemed uncomfortable, but I guess it's a left over from all the congestion. Both girls are still a little congested but not coughing and breathing well. Millie weighed 12 lbs today and Ruby weighed 11 lbs 9 oz. WOW. The girls have changed so much in the past two weeks. They are smiling a lot, batting at toys and so alert during the day.

Now that they are home from the hospital, no more slacking off. Morning exercise
Telling secrets at the MD office today.

Jake turned 6 on April 19th. We didn't have a big celebration since the girls were in the hospital, but I took cookies to his class at school. He has not had any more seizures. We've been told that there is a bit of a honeymoon period on Depakote, and that it may stop working for him at some point, but right now he is tolerating it pretty well. We've seen the neurosurgeon and two neurologists recently. I'll update you later but we're basically just doing a more in depth work up which will include an MRI and a PET scan. It will take awhile to get all the tests etc done so no other news right now. 

Emmett had his first Sweet Cici's (frozen yogurt) this week. He wanted strawberries and grapes (? they don't have grapes) as toppings. I added gummy bears which were a real hit. Nummies! As you can see from the picture, Emmett also got his haircut again. was worse this time than the first time. I tried to start with giving him a lollipop, but there were still tears and thrashing, and we ended up with a hairy lollipop and a very uneven cut. 


  1. Always in our thoughts and prayers! So glad that everyone is home! Love, Donna and Hannah

  2. Great news! And wow, Jake is SIX! Happy Birthday, big guy!
