The kids and I are slowly getting over our colds. It's taking longer than we'd like. Lindy seems almost fine except for a little drainage that is apparentely just sitting in the back of her throat. It has driven me nuts all week. Doesn't seem to bother her but you can hear it. Will's nose is still running, although it's getting a little slower each day. I am still pretty stopped up as well. I think we had colds but now I'm beginning to wonder if it's allergeries. Or both! We've all developed pretty good coughs as well. Drew finally caught the cold at the beginning of this week but he seems to have gotten over it already. Not fair!
Along with a cold, Will finally had his fourth molar break through on Monday. He's been a happy camper between the cold and his teeth. He's officially addicted to Tylenol. It's an instant elixir for him. You give it to him and he immediately feels better. He loves his Tylenol!
Lindy had a few appointments this week. We had our hearing teacher here on Monday. We ended up doing our session in her high chair. I think all sessions will be there from now on. She just gets too distracted on the ground in the living room. She responded to the six sounds better in her high chair too. We have rescheduled her hearing test for May 8th (the one we had to cancel because of her cold).
Tuesday she had physical therapy. They made casts for her new custom braces. We are still waiting on some paperwork to be cleared, but the casts are ready as soon as everything is done. Casting was really easy. She put this plaster type stuff around her feet and then just cut a line down the front and took it off. We had time for Lindy to show off her new crawling and cruising skills. Heather was very proud of her! Hopefully these new braces will really give her the confidence to go!
We were supposed to have our Govenor Morehead teacher here on Wednesday but she cancelled because she was getting sick. Thursday morning I took the kids to Target for a morning adventure. We were there forever, looking at a little bit of everything. That afternoon we played outside.
Today we went to the North Carolina Zoo. It ended up being pretty hot outside! The original forecase I saw said it was supposed to be 82 and I think it ended up near 90. We were tired and hot after spending almost 4 hours there. Lindy finally fell asleep at the very end of the afternoon. I thought (hoped) they would both nap. Both did fall asleep on the way there though. I've decided the zoo isn't for little kids though. I'm sure Lindy didn't see any animals and Will might have seen 3. They just couldn't see much. It'll definitely be better when they are a lot older. They were awesome though. They hardly made a peep. Just went along for the ride. We started the day with lunch at Sir Pizza which is a must if you are ever in Asheboro. Yummy!
Here are pictures from our week:

Today was the March of Dimes March for Babies. It could not have been a more beautiful day to go for a 3.2 mile walk. It was gorgeous! We had 18 friends walk with us as part of the Million Dollar Babies team. It means so much to us that our friends want to support us and the March of Dimes in our endeavors to eliminate infant mortality and prematurity.
We also want to thank everyone for financially supporting us this year. Once again the generosity of our friends and family has blown us away. Drew and I raised almost $3500 this year. Helping save babies is a good cause. It’s a good thing to donate to. One day all babies will be born healthy - we have to walk to get there.
The only small hiccup of the day was that Lindy, Will, and I caught colds this week. Will and I weren’t feeling 100%, but we definitely walked. Lindy came down with a cold on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning and by Thursday afternoon Will and I had it. We stuffed our pockets full of tissues and we walked! Lindy slept most of the walk. I thought Will would since he didn’t feel great but he stayed awake.
Million Dollar Babies Team!

Katie, Claire, and Micah (a returning walker from last year. Little Claire was inside the womb last year though!)
We saw one of our neonatologist, Dr. Welch.
I hate to see Lindy and Will sick, especially since we were so excited that it is April (the first month they consider it safe to come out of hibernation). But I’ll admit that both youngins fell asleep on me this week and it was kind of sweet to snuggle them. They are always so busy and on the go that we don’t get good snuggle time anymore.
