Last Saturday we took the babies to their first ever Wake Forest football game. We had debated all week because of hurricane Gustav bringing rain in. It even rained early Saturday morning but it cleared off and became a beautiful day. We cancelled the babysitters and took the kids. It was a little hot for about 45 minutes but then the sun went behind the new Deacon Tower and it was much better. There was a breeze every once in awhile that was nice. The babies did really good. Lindy was, as always, a dream baby. Will did well but he got scared a couple times with all the yelling and such. He had been woken up from a nap and was still tired. He finally fell asleep for a little while in the fourth quarter but woke up to see Sam Swank kick a field goal with 3 seconds left to win the game. What an exciting first game they went to!!
Tuesday Lindy and I went in and met a friend for some Target shopping and lunch. We both enjoyed getting out of the house and seeing Mary Allen and her one year old Tyler. I wasn't brave enough to take two babies and do lunch with them. Hopefully we can have more play dates soon.
Lindy had her Deaf and Hard of Hearing teacher come on Wednesday. She is still pleased with Lindy and her new listening skills. Speaking of her hearing, her audiologist called on Friday with some cool news. The audiologist was talking to the Phonak representative (the brand of Lindy's hearing aides) and they said they have a new, smaller version of Lindy's hearing aides. They said they would switch them with us if we were okay with that. Ummm, yes, we're definitely okay with smaller hearing aides! I can't wait to see if they help at all with the constant flopping. We go this coming week for a hearing test so we'll hopefully get them then.
Friday we went to the hopping town of King for lunch and to run an errand. On the way home we stopped at the park and walked for a little bit. On the way out I saw the baby swing in the playground area. We had to stop and check it out. The kids enjoyed it a lot!
Lindy is continuing to push up on her arms pretty good. I think I've seen her a couple times acting like she is trying to scrunch her butt up a little. Maybe trying to get on her knees? She doesn't get there but she is possibly trying a little bit. Will has been standing a few more times this week. Not for long but small bits of time. I haven't caught any pictures of it yet.
Seriously, it's been a boring week around here. It was rainy and cool so we were cooped up inside most of the week. Next week looks to be much more hectic.
Is anyone still reading my blog?
Game day babies!
The side ways picture. It had been awhile since we did one!
I caught Lindy with her leg cocked up again. She'll cock her leg up on about anything!
Our park adventure!
One of my new favorite pictures of Lindy. I love her expression and raised eyebrow!
P.S. I want to tell Lauren congratulations! After a very long wait, she was finally able to bring her new daughter, Isabelle, home with her from Guatamala this week! We're so happy for you!!
