Month 8: Growing!!!

This past month has been an exciting one! Caitlyn and Brittany has each gotten a tooth and their second tooth is popping through now! Ashton doesn't have any yet!!

We had to lower the mattresses in their cribs last night. It was getting to where they were be on their knees and grabbing onto the rails. They like to pull the bumpers down and look over them.

We spent the evening over my parents house last week and we had all of them on floor to play around. Well, Caitlyn tried to crawl! She moved each knee once! I think once she realizes that she can move around, she is going to take off!! Ashton and Brittany haven't moved forward yet. They both are moving backwards. Ashton got himself stuck under the end table in the living room and couldn't go anywhere!

We had an Easter brunch at my parents house with my sister and her boyfriend and took a nice walk around my parents neighborhood. Then we went to Kevin's parents house for Easter dinner with his family.

Next week they have their 9 month check up! Then we have 2 camping trips planned for May!

Almost crawling...

The babies are so close to crawling. I think Caitlyn will be the one that will crawl first though. She is always getting on her knees and hands and rocks back and forth.

While Caitlyn is the only one that looks like she is ready to take off crawling. Brittany is mastering the sitting up on her own. She does get a little excited sometimes and falls over, but she is definitely getting stronger at sitting up.

Ashton is too excited to sit up. Every time we try to sit him up, he arches his back and falls over. But, he is just a happy little man! This week he has been trying so hard to crawl.

They are also starting to get their little attitudes. This picture I took of Brittany at my parents house made me laugh. It was like she was saying, hurry up and take the picture!!

Eye see you....

Since the babies were born, they had to see an eye doctor when they were released from the hospital. They want to see preemies or preemies that have been on oxygen because there is a higher risk for eye development problems since they did not get a chance to fully develop. There are risks for crossed-eyes and lazy eyes and chance for glasses at an early age.

Brittany and Ashton had their first appointment before Caitlyn came home since they were released before she was. It wasn't a pleasant process. We were not aloud in the room when they did their exams because of what they had to do since the babies couldn't focus or move their eyes around yet. They would have little broken blood vessels in their eyes because of the process. But we were told that would happen. Caitlyn was seen a few weeks after. Everything looked good, so they didn't have to come back for another 6 months.

Ashton and Brittany went back a month ago and they had a great report!! Everything was developed the way it was suppose to. Caitlyn had her appointment today and she got the same report. So now they don't have to go back for another 2 years!! That was great news for us!

Little of this... Little of that

Since the last post, Caitlyn has started saying "Daa Daa!!" and "Baa Baa" Ashton has said "Maa Maa" "Baa Baa" Caitlyn has also started to get on all fours and rock. It's only a matter of time before she is crawling.

Our camping trip went great. The babies did awesome! They went to bed every night about 930pm. We took walks around the campground with them and took them to the camp store to see the ladies down there. The weather wasn't that bad, a little chilly at times.

Caitlyn has her first tooth coming in!! Man, that thing is sharp!!

Brittany had her first tooth pop up a day after Caitlyn. So now im just waiting for Ashton to get his! Looks like they all will be getting teeth at the same time. Lucky for us right?!

Caitlyn is most likely going to be the first one to crawl. She get's up on her hands and knees and starts to rock. She tries so hard to move!
