Time flies

Another week has gone by? Man time goes fast! Our week was pretty busy, although not as bad as last week.

The babies started off the week with a physical therapy appointment on Monday. Both babies did good. Each had their strengths and weaknesses. We love visiting Miss Heather, she oohs and aahs over the babies! She was very impressed with Lindy. She gave us some things to work on with both babies and we'll see her again in 3 months.

Monday was also an exciting day for Will, he tried his first vegetable. We started with sweet potatoes. I was so excited for a funny face or something to happen and guess what, nothing happened. He ate it like he had eaten it a million times. He acted like there was no difference between the rice cereal and sweet potatoes. How unexciting! He ate them great all week and last night we tried green beans. Again, nothing. No reaction at all. Acts like he's been eating them for years! I guess I'm actually pretty happy but I thought I could get some good pictures at least!

Wednesday we went to the audiologist and got Lindy's new ear molds. Unfortunately they aren't much better and we will be going Monday to get new ones made! These little hearing aides are a pain in the butt. This time the left one is okay and the right one whistles badly. Maybe one day we'll get them right!

Thursday was a good day for Miss Lindy. She had a follow-up echocardiogram done on her heart and this one came back good! It looks like the pressure that was there in February is gone and everything looks normal! I was so excited. Of course I had visions of it having gotten worse. We also had an appointment at the NICU follow-up clinic. At the echo they said she weighed 12 pounds 8 ounces! At the NICU follow-up clinic they said she weighed 12 pounds 5 ounces! The baby girl has had excellent growth! She is actually making it on the charts for her adjusted age now. Albeit very low percentage (like 10%), but hey, she's made it! In the weight to length measurement she is actually above average. Her little belly is getting big for her little body! Because the echo came back good we were able to talk about weaning her oxygen!!! Yeah!!! We stopped her diuretics that she has been on yesterday and we are going to wait two weeks to make sure she does okay off of them. If she does then we will start weaning. I'm dreaming of the day that she is not tethered down! What a glorious day that will be!

The babes are doing well. Will seems to be doing a little better in the wheezing department. I think the Prevacid we started him on is helping. He finally rolled all the way over from back to belly. He has been so incredibly close for so long now, he just couldn't get over his left arm. He finally made it yesterday. Of course I was gone and Daddy got to see it! Lindy is becoming much more vocal. She has started making some of the cutest noises ever! When she is happy she has started making this "Weee" sound that is so funny. We think she is getting louder as well, which could mean her left vocal cord might be doing something (remember it is paralyzed from her PDA surgery).

That's the news from here. Everyone have a wonderful weekend. Our beautiful 77ยบ weather is going to turn colder and rainy. Yuck!

Lou Lou started off on the play mat. She gets away quick now!

Willy-Will was ready to watch the Final Four last weekend. He was actually ready to play but we told him he needs to grow a few more inches!
Are these not the cutest things in the world. We love when packages with cute baby things arrive in the mail. Thanks Nana and Papa!
Lindy was exhausted after eating her rice cereal last night. Maybe she should have taken an afternoon nap!
While Will was watching basketball, Lindy was trying on swimsuits. She just can't wait for summertime and trips to Mimo's beach house!
